30 posts in 30 days challange

So one of the major motivations for upgrading my blog to WordPress is that I wanted to take part in the 30 posts in 30 days challange and get back into blogging, like I was in 2007/2008.

I’m not sure where this whole “30 days of me” originally came from, I’m going to blame @pebblesy entirely since I think she was the first person tweeting about it that made me take notice.

Since the start of the day, it’s taken off in storm and whole pile of my twitter and real-life friends have joined up for it and created blogs.

I figured I’d better join in all the fun (and I’m always up for getting involved in anything with large numbers of lovely ladies) so managed to find a couple hours and ported across most of the key data off my old blog to this one.

To give you an idea of the size of this, pebblesy created a page with other twitter users who are also taking part, the list is quite extensive: http://pebblesy.wordpress.com/2010/09/07/30-days-of-me-meet-my-fellow-challengies/

The whole concept of the 30 days is to answer a different question or topic every day, the list that I’ve been floating around is:

Day 01- A recent picture of you and 15 interesting facts about yourself
Day 02- The meaning behind your Blog name
Day 03- A picture of you and your friends
Day 04- A habit that you wish you didn’t have
Day 05- A picture of somewhere you’ve been to
Day 06- Favourite super hero and why
Day 07- A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you
Day 08- Short term goals for this month and why
Day 09- Something you’re proud of in the past few days
Day 10- Songs you listen to when you are Happy, Sad, Bored, Hyped, Mad
Day 11- Another picture of you and your friends
Day 12- How you found out about blogging and why you made one
Day 13- A letter to someone who has hurt you recently
Day 14- A picture of you and your family
Day 15- What are your favourite songs [adjusted from ipod list]
Day 16- Another picture of yourself
Day 17- Someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why
Day 18- Plans/dreams/goals you have
Day 19- Nicknames you have; why do you have them
Day 20- Someone you see yourself marrying/being with in the future
Day 21- A picture of something that makes you happy
Day 22- What makes you different from everyone else
Day 23- Something you crave for a lot
Day 24- A letter to your parents
Day 25- What I would find in your bag
Day 26- What you think about your friends
Day 27- Why are you doing this 30 day challenge
Day 28- A picture of you last year and now, how have you changed since then?
Day 29- Your favourite song.
Day 30- In this past month, what have you learned

It’s a somewhat different slant from my usual geekary, but if you only want purely geekary, you are always able to select the categories to limit what you get from this blog to just that. :-)

Anyway, it should be fun – I’ll be starting day one tomorrow. If you’re on twitter, following along the fun with the hash tag #30daysofme or you can follow a super RSS compilation feed that pebblesy made.

    Forgot to add, my elusive staff have also signed up with blogs with the aim of taking part – they’re both interesting and have managed to survive me for 6+months, so worth following along. :-)

    You’re using a serif font? Evil!

      Mwhahaha :-P

      I’m too busy to modify the theme that much… but I kind of like it anyway. :-)

      BTW, email address assists with post validation and for fetching avatar images from gravatar.

        I realised as much when the picture showed up, and now Gravatar’s breaking and not letting me add the email address to my account. Might be a tad too long for it.

    Pretty sure you misspelled one of your staff’s twitter handles there…
