For the past couple years, I've had a little blog series running through November. Do you remember it? Nothing complicated. Just a daily blog, throughout the month of November, tied into a series.
In 2010, it was 30 Days of Thanks & Giving.
In 2011, it was 30 Days of Farms & Families.
And while I haven't yet settled on a theme for this year (hey, I've got a whole month still!), "30 Days" of something will definitely be back. I'm kicking around a few ideas here at the Prairie Farmer field office, and I'm all ears if you've got an idea for me. Really, there are no bad ideas. Well, maybe. But all ideas will be heard!
Here's the twist for this year: if you blog about agriculture, I'd like to invite you to join me in 30 Days. Pick a your own farm-related topic and write about it every day for the month of November. Send me your link on November 1st, and I'll add it to the link list here at My Generation. You link back to my blog from your list. Lots of link love! But mostly, lots of agriculture love. And that's what it's all about.
And the writing? It's not so hard. Think short posts with one point made each day. This is, of course, what I tell myself each year and sometimes it works and sometimes I just feel like I have a lot to say. Times 30.
Think it over. 30 Days of something. It's a great writing challenge. It's a great challenge for stretching your boundaries and what you think you can do (and can't). Drop me a line or comment below if you're thinking of joining in, or if you have questions.
I think it'll be fun.
