Blog Every Day In October: Blogtober14

Blog Every Day In October: Blogtober14

The other day I wrote a post called “30 Different Blog Post Ideas”. Looking through the list, I wondered if I could every complete all of them. And then, Taylor presented a challenge and I knew had to try: Blogtober14
Taylor approached me about blogging every day in October and when The Daily Tay wants to do something, I jump immediately on board. Yes, even if it was a cliff, or something.

I have never blogged every single day, weekends included. I’ve tried before, but always made an excuse to miss a day. This will be a fun way to challenge yourself to write every day. The best way to become a better writer is to keep at it. To force yourself to write as often as possible. So Taylor and I are taking the challenge and we want you to join!

We added a hashtag: #Blogtober14 so you can follow along on instagram and twitter. This will also be a great way for everyone to connect.
Each day in October we’ll host a link up so you can add your link so others can find you. We also have a button you can add to your posts each day:

You can join every day or just when you like, it’s up to you! You can, of course, blog about other things too. There’s plenty of fun stuff in October that I’ll be sharing about in addition to the prompts below.

We put together a list of daily prompts for the 31 days in October and we hope you’ll join us. You have plenty of time to get your thinking cap on! You can make the prompts what you want- change them up to fit your style!

  • I love this idea! I might have to join in and do these. I always make an excuse that I don't know what to write about, so I skip days. This challenge would take away my excuse though.

  • I love this idea, true fess up I usually do blog every day because I am a bit of a psycho but this is a nice focused approach. I am in like Flinn.

  • That actually sounds like a fabulous idea. I hope I'm up to it!

  • I am pathetically excited about this! Thank you for hosting, and taking the time to put this together! You and Taylor rock!!!

  • This is going to be AWESOME! Can't wait! I'm already blogging everyday in September sans weekends, but I can totally up the odds in October! Great prompts too. Halloween sure motivates me the most about this challenege.. LOVE IT!


  • So very excited for this, I already love October but this little challenge will make it even more exciting!

  • 1) I loved your post with the 30 ideas. Thanks for planning out my blog for me. and 2) I love this idea and the prompts you gave. 3) Obviously I love everything.

  • Every day blogging would burn me out, but I'm an every week day blogger usually. Good list!

  • I love the idea of #blogtober14 – I did Blogtober last year and nearly wore myself out. Plus if I had a post I wanted to do that WASNT on the list, I felt obligated to just push it to the back of my mind and stick to the list. I applaud you for your determination and can't wait to read your posts!

  • Ooooh I love this list! Maybe. Just Maybe I'll blog every day. I used to blog 5 days a week last year. But nowadays it's too hard to do that! I've started to allow myself two or three days off. It kinda kills me, but it makes blogging more manageable. Plus I run out of ideas and panic and then throw up on a white screen so that my followers won't all suddenly unfollow me. But these prompts are so fun and creative! I will definitely do some of these and link up a couple times!

  • I love this idea!!!! Looking forward to participating!

  • Such an awesome idea! I'm definitely up to it! Your 30 blog post ideas gave me some inspiration too!

  • I am totally joining in on this! Yesterday I was looking at one that was going on for September but decided not to join in since I am already 5 days late lol Can't wait!!!

  • I know I won't keep up with everyday in October but will definitely have to join in for some of these prompts!

  • Fun idea! And I'm so glad you posted it like a month early. I think getting a jump on it will help me follow through!

  • Awesome! Can't wait to join in on some of these with you guys!!

  • I'll def be joining in on this! It has been a struggle coming up with post ideas lately!

  • I am SO EXCITED about this! Although I'll have to get to work on the 18th-26th posts way in advanced since I'll be getting hitched & on my honeymoon those days! But actually, a few of those prompts are perfectly timed for that anyway πŸ™‚ Yay #Blogtober14!

  • I might have to fix a couple day in. I blog everyday in october for breast cancer awareness. This will be my 4th year doing it.

  • Yessssssssss!!!!!!

  • I blogged every day in August a few years ago just to see if I could do it. Not something I ever want to do again. But I might join in on some of the prompts every now and again! I'm just not going to promise to do it every day πŸ™‚

  • In all the years I've been blogging, I haven't done a 30 day prompt so maybe I'll join in!

  • I was looking for a blogging challenge, this might just be the one!

  • I love this idea for so many reasons, one being October is my favorite month! I've been meaning to blog more but it's hard coming up with topics sometimes, so this is a good way to get the brain juice flowing πŸ™‚ Thanks for this! Can't wait to read other bloggers posts, too!

    xo, Val

  • Will there be a linkup everyday?

  • Love the list! I have failed every attempt I have ever made at blogging every day. Can't decide if I'll try to hop on your bandwagon!

  • I'm in!

    I'm doing a Blogtember in attempt to resume regular blogging habits. I'm starting to get the kick of it already and so started looking for a Blogtober and here I am!

  • This is the first time @thedailytay and I are meeting in the flesh but I feel like we are long lost friends. We talk daily about blogging, life, and everything in between. She is as beautiful inside as she is out. People absolutely love her and it's easy to see why- she's cool and fun and warm and of course hilarious. I'm so honored to be here today. And I cannot even contain my love for this couple. They are the real deal. #thehillishaveeyes #MARRIEDAF #bloggervibes

  • 🎢Whatever happened to predictability? The milkman, the paper boy, evening tv?" 🎢 my first order of business in San Francisco was visiting the house where Full House 🏠was filmed because I'm 12 at heart. I'm here filming a class with @britandco, excited to be working on this for you guys. See what class I'll be teaching and follow my San Fran adventures on Snapchat πŸ‘» helenesula #helenetravels #photosinbetween #onlyinSF
  • I said I wouldn't shop the Nordstrom sale. But then I went. And I had to buy the things. I think I needed some of these things when they are on this big of a discount (I'm looking at you Patagonia) I was forced to. Shop my picks here or at the link: #liketkit #photosinbetween ALSO have not finished packing for San Francisco and my flight leaves tomorrow at 6 am. See you soon @britandco!
  • As I prepare to leave Tennessee, I can't help but reflect on some of my favorite memories. This city has taught me to love country music, eat hot chicken like it's going out of style, try new places, and explore it all. I will miss you Tennessee! @tnvacation will show you how to #MadeinTN #sponsored
  • My favorite part about summer is white nails. That and wearing white "summer sweaters" and sweating profusely as Michael makes fun on me. Update: I bought a new cream sweater today which means I'm at like 547 cream sweaters coming to Germany. #help #photosinbetween
