Blog every day in May...the challenge is on!

So, I was blog surfing (there's a shocker!) when I happened upon a blog challenge being held by the Story of my Life blog. There's nothing like a good prompt to get the grey matter working, so I thought, why not!

Here are the rules:
  • There really aren't any rules. If you miss a day, you can make it up or skip it. The blog police will not come knocking.
  • There will be a linkup option at the bottom of each post by the Story of my Life blog, so you are welcome to leave your links there for others to peruse as well.
  • You can still post other things every day, too. I plan to continue posting my regular posts as per usual.
  • Include the "blog every day in May" button (here) either on your sidebar or at the end of your posts, but again, the blog police will not come knocking. The main goal here is to get us all back to the basics of blogging, not to gain a million new readers (though I wouldn't mind that).
  • Here are the topics. You can be as creative and awesome or as boring and bland as you like with these. Take 'em and run with it. Use creative post titles. Interpret each "prompt" however you like. There's no wrong way to do it. Have fun.
  • Share using the hashtag #BlogEveryDayInMay

The challenges...
  1. The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph... no one will be counting your words... probably)
  2. Educate us on something you know alot about or are good at. Take any approach you'd like (serious and educational or funny and sarcastic)
  3. Things that make you uncomfortable
  4. Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it
  5. Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don't have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member
  6. If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?
  7. The thing(s) you're most afraid of
  8. A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.
  9. A moment in your day (this can be just a photo or both a photo and words)
  10. Most embarrassing moment (s). Spill.
  11. Sell yourself in 10 words or less
  12. What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life...)
  13. Issue a public apology. This can be as funny or as serious or as creative as you want it to be.
  14. Ten things that make you really happy
  15. A Day in the life (include photos from throughout your typical day - this could be "a photo an hour" if you'd like)
  16. Something difficult about your "lot in life" and how you're working to overcome it
  17. A favorite photo of yourself and why
  18. Tell a story from your childhood. Dig deep and try to be descriptive about what you remember and how you felt.
  19. Five of your favorite blogs and what you love about them
  20. Get real. Share something you're struggling with right now.
  21. A list of links to your favorite posts in your archives
  22. Rant about something. Get up on your soapbox and tell us how you really feel. (a pet peeve, a current event, a controversial topic, something your husband or roommate or neighbor or boss does that really ticks you off)
  23. Things you've learned that school won't teach you
  24. Your top 3 worst traits
  25. Something someone told you about yourself that you'll never forget (good or bad)
  26. Something you read online. Leave a link and discuss, if you'd like.
  27. A letter to your readers
  28. Only pictures
  29. Five songs or pieces of music that speak to you or bring back memories. Use Grooveshark or YouTube to include them in the post
  30. React to this term: Letting Go
  31. A vivid memory

Short notice...I know...but looks like fun! Who's with me?
