June’s on the horizon and with it comes BlogJune. I had no idea what this was until a couple of weeks ago when a friend asked me if I’d be interested in participating. It turns out to be a group event that started on Twitter in 2010. Someone tweeted that they’d be blogging every day for the month of June – and invited people to join them.
It sounds like a good way to ramp up my writing, so I promptly signed up. Then I started stressing about committing to one blog post a day for an entire month… It’s been something of a challenge to (more or less) keep to my self-imposed contract of two posts a week, so the thought of one a day is just a little (!) worrying.
I considered asking my readers what they’d like me to write about, and then working with whatever came up. But writing to someone else’s script each day could be tricky, so I had a rethink about where to look for writing prompts.
This is about when I realised that there’s a topic list on the sidebar on my blog, created from tags I’ve used in previous posts. This seems as good a place to start as any, so I’ve chosen seven topics that appeal to me the most (today, anyway). I’ve allocated a topic to each day of the week, and I’ll aim to repeat them in that order. I’m almost looking forward to it…
Why not sign up and join me on my month of blogging?
