It's Weblog Posting Month! + 31 Blog Post Ideas

I recently set up my Mastodon profile. I am dubious about it, but I did come across this hashtag: #weblogpomo2024. Despite my better judgement, I want to go for it.

What is WeblogPoMo? #

Started by Apple Annie, Weblog Posting Month (#WeblogPoMo2024) is a one-month blogging challenge to post daily between May 1st, 2024 and May 31st, 2024. Anyone with a personal blog should participate!

Da Rules (my rules) #

Here are the rules that I have set for myself

  29. How are my 30s going so far?
  30. What have I learned about personal finance?
  31. I can’t believe I haven’t come to the end of this list without a post climate change-specific idea… so this is that post idea 🌏

It’s also MerMay #

It’s also MerMay which is an art challenge (think inktober) where you draw a mermaid theme piece of art every day. I don’t think that’s necessarily sustainable for me, but I’d love to mix some mermaid themed things that I have been working on throughout the month… maybe even get myself motivated to finally start working on my novel again!

Why Am I Doing This? #

I have been blogging on this page for about a month now, and I feel like the main thing I am missing is community. This seems like the perfect way to interact with other bloggers a little bit more! Also it was the motivation I needed to finally set up an RSS feed (easier than I thought it would be!!)!
