Takin' the Blogging Easy Route For a Spell

  Thinking of things to blog about as a SAHM is hard. I do the same things every day with little variation. I'm practically a hermit, and the highlight of most days is going on a walk and talking on the phone with my mom, who is pretty much my best friend now. Some days when it rains constantly and I don't want to go outside, I sit on the floor with Lincoln and read for hours. Or watch Netflix, my ultimate weakness. Or go on YouTube and look up behind-the-scenes things for Doctor Who.

  Anyway, what I'm getting at here is that it's hard to think up interesting things to write about on your blog when you feel like your life is a black hole of repetitiveness. Some days I feel like I have creativity shooting out my nose, but other times (like now) I wallow in my life's same-ness and become a puddle of despondency. Which is not conducive to writing.

  This is a long-winded way to say that I'm going to do another 30 Day Writing Challenge (which I will almost certainly not finish in 30 days). Because writing is much easier when provided with a topic.

Day 1: List 10 random facts about yourself.
Day 2: Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and describe how they became fears.
Day 3: What is the greatest amount of physical pain you have ever endured?
Day 4: List 5 things you would tell your 16 year-old self if you could.
Day 5: What are the 5 things that make you happiest right now?
Day 6: What is the hardest thing you have ever experienced?
Day 7: What is your dream job, and why?
Day 8: What are 3 passions you have?
Day 9: What defines you?  
Day 10: Describe your most embarrassing moment.
Day 11: Describe a few of your pet peeves.
Day 12: Describe a typical day in your life.
Day 13: Describe 5 weaknesses you have.
Day 14: Describe 5 strengths you have.
Day 15: If you were an animal, what would you be and why?
Day 16: What are your 5 greatest accomplishments?
Day 17: What is the thing you most wish you were great at?
Day 18: What is the most difficult thing you have had to forgive?
Day 19: If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?
Day 20: Describe 3 significant memories from your childhood.
Day 21: If you could have 1 superpower, what would it be and what would be the first thing you did with it?
Day 22: Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 15 years?
Day 23: List your top 3 hobbies and why you love them.
Day 24: Describe your first job.
Day 25: If you could have dinner with anyone in history, who would it be and what would you eat?
Day 26: What popular notion do you think the world has wrong?
Day 27: What is your favorite part of your body and why?
Day 28: What is your love language?
Day 29: What were your three favorite toys/games as a child?
Day 30: List 5 things you would hope to be remembered for.
   Stay tuned for Day 1 tomorrow! Or, if you have any topics to suggest, lay it on me. Because my brain is a mess of applesauce and soggy graham crackers. 


  1. I feel you. I realized its been a long time since I wrote a post that wasn't baby related. Well, today's isn't, but I have a feeling its also crap. Gotta get back to to the good story telling, but what story is there to tell about dirty diapers?
