Post a Day May Challenge

Okay, so for a long time, I’ve been wanting to do some sort of post-a-day type of thing. So rather than feeling guilty about barely writing any posts for this blog, I’ve decided to stop being lazy & just come up with a post a day plan. Considering that it is the first day of the month, it is now the perfect time to start a one month, post-a-day challenge.

I decided to pick topics that I knew I could write something interesting about, but also something which would be a little bit of a challenge to write about. So I came up with a month worth of post prompts/topics. Feel free to do this challenge as well if you’re interested. If you decide you want to, tag it with #postadaymay because I’d really like to read what you write! 🙂

Here are the questions/prompts/topics for each day:

May 1: What is something you crave right now?

May 2: Do you have any pets?

May 3: Do you enjoy nature? What do you appreciate the most in nature? Do you spend a lot of time outside?

May 4: What is the most beautiful time of day?

May 5: What is your favorite charity & why?
