Blog Every Day in May #BEDM

Blog Every Day in May Blogging ChallengeAre you a Blogger? Do you feel up for a challenge to Blog Every Day in May? Of course you do! Well, step on in and find out all about this brilliant project.

Maybe you’re in a bit of a blogging rut?

Or perhaps you need a bit of inspiration?

You might even be looking to build your blogging readership with lots of fresh new content.

Maybe you are seeking a new community to followers who are taking part in a popular challenge like this.

Whatever your motivations, Blog Every Day in May is here for you. We’re all here for you.

What is Blog Every Day in May?

Blog Every Day in May is a blogging challenge where you will attempt to write and publish a blog post every day for the entire month of May. It’s as simple as that.

I will be setting a topic for each day to help inspire you. Or you can choose your own topics. Either way, you blog, you publish, and you share on Twitter with the hashtag #BEDM where you will find loads of awesome new blogs to read.

The project happens every six months and we’ve had brilliant participation over the past year. It’s so much fun to take part in.

What if I can’t blog every day?

This is meant to be a fun challenge so don’t stress if you miss a day. It’s the taking part that counts. So just keep going!

What if the topic isn’t suitable for my blog?

The topics are totally optional, they are meant to serve as a guide. If you have something else totally rad to write about instead, do that. The main aim is to blog every day, not necessarily follow the topic calendar.

How shall I interpret the topic?

Try to be creative and use the topics as a springboard. Think of alternative ways to blog such as photo diaries, lists, poems, video blogs, mind maps, illustrations.

Oh-em-gee … this blog post isn’t perfect, I’m too scared to publish it!

This is more of a statement than a question, but was repeated plenty last time. I say publish away. I’ve sometimes been surprised by the response to some of my less favourite blog posts in the past. You never know, so just get the posts out there. The more you blog, the better it will be.

Hey! I can’t see the full topic details on the Google calendar?!

You need to hover or click on the topic to reveal the rest of the topic title and the prompts. I recommend saving the calendar to your own Google calendar so you can visit it easily every day.

How can I find fellow BEDM-ers?

Check out the google docs spreadsheet above with all of the participants listed there. And follow the #BEDM hashtag for the conversation.


Are you ready for the challenge to blog every day?

Will you be joining us?

Remember, it’s the taking part that counts!

    Oh what fun! I thoroughly enjoyed the Nov one, and I only usually post about once a week! Looking forward to taking part, thanks for the nudge, Elizabeth!

    Signed up! And was looking through the calendar and spotted that 23rd of May was captioned as “Date Night”, which I find quite funny due to the fact that my boyfriend and I’s anniversary!

      Perfect timing then! We want to hear all about it. (well maybe not all!) 😉

    Hey, this sounds great & I’m up for the challenge! Looks like some great prompts too – but I just can’t seem to get the code to work for the BEDM badge – any ideas? Anyone else had any issues?

    • 24 April 2014 / 12:21 pm

      Hi Clare,

      Thank you so much for letting me know!

      Hopefully I’ve fixed the code now so do try again and it should work. Let me know if you have any problems with the badge.

      Happy Blogging!

    Awesome idea! I’m working on side project and decided to do a “blogging blitz” in May to fill my site up with content. This will certainly help keep me motivated, thank you!

  6. 24 April 2014 / 6:47 pm

    Great idea! I know myself and I don’t think I could blog every day without dropping the ball on every other responsibility and keep up the quality, and have time for promotion too, but I’m giving everyone who’s doing it an encouraging thumbs-up!

    Sadly I am starting a new job in May (it is good news but not for me trying to blog every day in May!) so I’ll have to opt out (AGAIN!) and hopefully try again for the next one.

    • 30 April 2014 / 2:54 pm

      Congrats on the new job Siobhan! I totally understand what it’s like starting at a new place. Hope it goes well!

    This could not be better timing for me! I’ve been blogging for two years but only recently set up the one I am going to do the challenge on. Can not wait to take part! Thank you so much for creating this challenge!

    • 30 April 2014 / 2:54 pm

      Excellent, I can’t wait to read your posts and congrats on the new blog!

  12. 29 April 2014 / 9:27 pm

    Oh gawd, what have I let myself in for!? Surely I’d have learnt from #BEDM 2013 and #BEDN 🙂 Nah, seriously it was great fun both times and hopefullu it’ll be just as much fun this time round as well! 🙂 x

    It’s good to use someone else’s topics for a change. Now I can give my own brain a break. I will still post my normal topics besides these…. I’m excited!

  17. 30 April 2014 / 8:12 pm

    I just found this via the Life Outside London blog and I’m feeling very inspired to sign up. I love the prompts you’ve put together (and your blog in general!) x

    Hi! I’m a book blogger and I recently became active in blogging again after month-long breaks. I just came across this challenge and thought it could spur me on to write more blog posts. 🙂
