Blogtember Challenge

From the stress of beginning a new school year (yes, even teachers get overwhelmed), I have fallen off the blogging train quite a bit. Because of that, I've decided to join Story of My Life in a Blogtember posting fest!

You can check out that blog for more details, but these are the topics I'll be covering. I may miss one or two... we'll see. But I'm really going to shoot for posting about all of these topics. If I fall a day or two behind, don't give up on me.

Tuesday, September 3: Describe where or what you come from. The people, the places, and/or the factors that make up who you are.
Wednesday, September 4: 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!)
Thursday, September 5: Pass on some useful advice or information you learned and always remembered. 
Friday, September 6: A story about a time you were very afraid.
Monday, September 9: 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!)
Tuesday, September 10: Describe a distinct moment when your life took a turn.
Wednesday, September 11: Share links to your favorite online shops, preferably with a few photos of your favorite items in each shop.
Thursday, September 12: Discuss ways that blogging or social media has changed you.
Friday, September 13: A self-portrait
Monday, September 16: Write a public love letter to someone in your life. (It doesn't necessarily need to be romantic.)
Tuesday, September 17: A memory you would love to relive.
Wednesday, September 18: Only photos
Thursday, September 19: Creative 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!
Friday, September 20: React to this term: comfort. 
Monday, September 23: 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!
Tuesday, September 24: Review a book, place, or product.
Wednesday, September 25: Write about a time you screwed up - a mistake you made. 
Thursday, September 26: 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.
Friday, September 27: An anonymous letter to your Facebook friends. Be as snarky as you'd like (but don't include people's real names).
Monday, September 30: Share 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.
If you're going to participate in Blogtember as well, I'd love to follow your progress as well! I think this is just what I need to get back to blogging more than once a week.


  1. While all of these sound interesting, the letter to FB friends is the one that caught my eye. I'm going to have to check out all the posts written that day!

    1. Haha! That's the one I'm nervous about writing! Most of these prompts sound really cool and fun to me, though! :)
