Blog Every Day In May - Thoughts On Blogging Every Day

I have truly enjoyed following along with Cate and her challenge to blog every day in May! I have especially enjoyed the variety of topics in the prompts she provided and feel like it has been a wonderful way to get me out of the blogging rut I'd fallen into. I also enjoyed seeing other bloggers' interpretations of the prompts.

As we're closing in on the end of the month, I have to admit that I was also reminded that it takes time and effort to produce blog posts on a daily basis. I found the prompts to be FUN as well as a little challenging at times. If you've been following along, you'll know that I occasionally adapted the prompt to make it work for me. (Or I simply threw in something random, like these gift tags and card I created as samples for my upcoming Pocket Page Scrapbooking & More class at Scrappin' Goodtime!)

Another challenge for me this month was the fact that we had ten days of travel planned! I typically have my computer with me when we travel, and often take time to blog or read and comment on blogs in the evenings. However, my philosophy is that vacation is for taking a break and having FUN and enjoying life as it happens, so there are times when the laptop never makes it out of the backpack. Luckily, I was able to schedule posts for the days we were on the road! (I'll be sharing photos and stories from our trip very soon!)

I want to send a huge thank you to Cate for providing the challenge and INSPIRATION to blog every day this month!!

(Don't worry, I know there are two days left in the month, and I'll have a post for you both days!)

Did you participate in Cate's challenge? What did you learn along the way?


  1. Well done on keeping up with the schedule despite being away - I am most impressed, and enjoyed the variety of posts too.

  2. I am hugely impressed with your posting every day. Very enjoyable it has been, too. Well done.

  3. I really enjoyed all your posts....even if I didn't always comment.

  4. I've really enjoyed reading your posts every day! And by the way, was just listening to PRT and heard them read out your comment! 'That's' my blog friend!' I said out loud to absolutely no one lol!

  5. You did a fabulous job getting things scheduled for while you were away!

  6. Kudos to you for taking time away from the computer while you were traveling! I think I'll be doing much of the same while we're traveling this summer.

  7. Congratulations Melissa for doing the entire "Blog Every Day in May" with Cate. I managed to get a few done but alas.....there's all my irons in the fire and I didn't get it completed. <....sigh> But I thoroughly enjoyed what I did do and maybe she'll do it again next year? I can always try again.
    Can't wait to see posts from your trip!


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
