30 Days Of Blogging Honesty Starts Tomorrow!

Y’all ready for this? I dare you to be. Happily I am almost finished all of my responses and all are pre-scheduled. Now I have plenty of time to get ready to create some posts for May. So I guess this is like a mature version of Truth or Dare and the Truth portion starts tomorrow. The Dares commence once all of your 30 responses have finally been posted. The dares are very straight forward and nothing too difficult, nothing vulgar, juvenile or illegal. I guess that means no public nudity (and that’s a good thing believe you, me)! Well for the adventurous and the ones who are kids at heart, I might find one childish dare!

Your choices for dares are below. You only need complete one of the dares but feel free to complete more. You post and description of what dare you did and how it turned out is due five days from the completion date of your thirty questions. Everyone participating will be looking for your dare response. You most certainly do not have to wait until the end of the month to complete your dare(s). You can do it today if you like. You are in charge of your dare! You can use the above graphic for your dare post or not. All dare posts are due no later than five days after your final 30 Day of Blogging Honesty post.

30 Days of Blogging Honesty: The Dare

Category: Youngins
Write a letter to your 16-year-old self and post it. Detail your journey.

Category: Coulda, Shoulda, Wouldas
Write a letter to someone you owe an apology to but never gave one. It does not have to be a long letter. Just write the letter (not email),  send it and then post it for us to see.

Category: Good Eats
Eat completely healthy for an entire day even if it means eating foods you do not care for. Document all failures or start over another day if you mess up.

Category: ARKs
For a 24 hour period, for every act of kindness given to you, pay it forward to a stranger one better.  For example – if a friend buys you a coffee, buy two strangers a cup of coffee. Detail your journey.

Category: Truthiness
For a 24 hour period you must tell the truth in every situation, every question – all day long. Perhaps the most difficult will be not lying to yourself. Detail your journey.

Category: Blushing
Spend an hour by yourself totally naked even if there are other people in the house but only if you won’t get caught. If you get interrupted you must start over and reset the clock to zero minutes. Detail your journey.

Next Saturday, April 7th my guest blogger will be Cherlyn Cochrane. This will be her second time guesting. If you have a moment why not check out her first guest post and then if you have the time, stop by her blog, Over A Cup Of Coffee!

Breaking My Own Rule – Again

Dear Friends,

I have a self-imposed rule about posting more than once during any given day. On occasion I have broken that rule for what I felt was a good reason. Also, I know that the people who both follow and comment here are some of the most kind-hearted in the entire world universe! For that reason I am asking you to visit (bombard would be a better word) a new-found friend’s blog.

She has an illness that she has written about in her latest post, Illness, and I think it would great if she could receive some encouragement and friendly conversation from other bloggers. She is still in high school and I encourage mothers, and other bloggers in her age group to head on over there (27unspokenwords) and say hello. I’m going to assume she is still in school right now and it would be a pleasant surprise for her when she visits her blog this afternoon or tonight and sees the outpouring of kindness. I thank any of you, all of you who stop by her place. And as for you guys are concerned; have a great weekend!



30 Days Of Blogging Honesty Starts In Two Days!

In case you missed the title, 30 Days Of Blogging Honesty Starts In Two Days! I hope everyone who wanted to participate can follow through and be a part of the thirty days. I hope you have at least a weeks worth of answers finished as well. I’ll be the first to admit that one of the 30 question did not appeal to me and I switched out for the alternate question. Tomorrow’s post will have the list of dares for you to choose from. If you are going to be a part of this and your name is no where to be found, please make me aware of it in the comment section.

Below is a list of all the bloggers who were interested in taking part in 30 Days of Blogging Honesty:


Cherlyn Cochrane
A Single Parent’s Life
Sylvia Garza
Everything L&L
