Let's Celebrate Blogtober!

I'm taking on a challenge. Several of my favorite bloggers have been doing a Blog Everyday in...[insert month here]. I did part of the Blog Everyday in May challenge -- unsuccessfully, I might add. I'm a bit reluctant to take on such a challenge because, let's be honest, I'm not sure if I will be able to complete it. Blogging everyday -- including weekends -- for an entire month?? Seems a bit of a steep challenge. But, I'm rising to the occasion! 

The reason I've decided to take on the challenge is that I've been feeling a bit blah lately. I miss creating things -- art, poems, heck, even research papers for class (do not tell my college professors). I will be taking different topics from fellow bloggers who have completed the challenge. I'll be following prompts (most taken from Story of My Life and others are of my own creation) or I'll just write about wherever the creative winds blow. 

Feel free to join, in your own way, whether in the comments or in your own personal journal. I'd love to share this monthly journey with you. Aren't we lucky to live in a world where there are Octobers?


October 1: Describe where or what you come from. The people, the places, and/or the factors that make up who you are.
October 2: If you could take three months off from your current life and do anything in the world, what would you do? (bonus points for fun photos from Pinterest, but don't forget to cite the source!)
October 3: Pass on some useful advice or information you learned and always remembered. 
October 4: A story about a time you were very afraid.
October 5: Take this short personality test and respond to your results. (at the end, find the detailed profile of your personality account - click "click to view" under "You" and "self awareness and personal growth." You can even google your type and find more info on it!)
October 6: Describe a distinct moment when your life took a turn.
October 7: Share links to your favorite online shops, preferably with a few photos of your favorite items in each shop.
October 8: Discuss ways that blogging or social media has changed you.
October 9A self portrait
October 10Write a public love letter to someone in your life. (It doesn't necessarily need to be romantic.)
October 11A memory you would love to relive.
October 12Only photos
October 13Creative writing day: write a (very short) fictional story that starts with this sentence: "To say I was dreading the dinner party would be the understatement of the century."
The story does not necessarily need to have a conclusion - you can leave your readers wishing for more!
October 14React to this term: comfort. 
October 15: A "life lately" post. What you're up to, how you're feeling, how you're doing on your goals, etc. Bonus points for great photos!
October 16: Review a book, place, or product.
October 17: Write about a time you screwed up - a mistake you made. 
October 18: Go to a coffee shop. Order a favorite drink. Write about what makes you happy and what makes you sad. Or write about anything you'd like! Bonus points for including a photo from the coffee shop. *if you can't make it to a coffee shop, at least leave your usual space and write someplace new.
October 19: An anonymous letter to your Facebook friends. Be as snarky as you'd like. (but don't include people's real names.) 
October 20Share a photo of something old. Maybe something that has personal history for you, that was passed down to you, and that has special meaning to you. Tell us about it and why it's special.
October 21: Something that makes you uncomfortable.
October 22: Write a sequel, in the form of a poem, to your favorite book or movie.
October 23: An ode to your favorite article of clothing.
October 24: Write down your most recent dream.
October 25: A haiku.
October 26: List all the fears you have when you woke up this morning.
October 27: Free Day.
October 28: Things you've learned that school won't teach you.
October 29: October Favorites
October 30: Favorite Halloween memory.
October 31: Favorite posts of Blogtober. 

Yours xx
