Two years ago I wrote a series called 30 Days of Change, a parenting challenge that a small group of bloggers participated in, trying each daily challenge and blogging the results. As last year came to a close, I wanted to try another challenge, but something a little less…deep. I wavered between silly little daily tasks like making the bed or shaving my legs and wondered, what would happen if I didn’t allow myself to skip this step in my morning? After thirty days, would anything be different? It turns out that not only did I not have the willpower to complete these tasks every day, I couldn’t even find the motivation to begin writing about the process.
Last week I read about The Nester‘s 31 Days writing meme and began to think again about writing every day about one very specific topic. Nester has written in the past about 31 Days of Lovely Limitations, 31 Days to a Less Messy Nest, and 31 Days to a Better Dressed Nest.
I know that I want to jump on the 31 Days bandwagon next month, but this is as far as I’ve gotten…
As you can see, there is something missing on my 31 Days button. A topic.
I’d love to write about Disney for 31 days because I’ve got at least 31 Disney posts in draft version right now. I also think it might be fun to finally try out that list of things I jotted down at the end of last year. Is life really better when you exercise every day? Will I really feel healthier if I make more meals from scratch? Then there are the BIG topics…you know, the ones that require a lot of thought and some tears and tend to hit us all in that place in our chests where it gets tight when we’re reading something that feels close to home.
And this is where I need your help! I would love your ideas. I would love to hear in the comments what topic will keep you reading for 31 days straight. I’d also love to hear what topics you’d hate to see because oh my goodness, 31 days of that would be far too much.
So let’s hear it! What’s it going to be?
