It's Time for Blogathon 2013!

Last year, I participated in my first ever Blogathon. The challenge is to post every day for the month, so that was 31 posts for the month of May. This year, the blogathon is in June, which gives us one fewer day to have to blog. Maybe we should lobby for February next year?

The idea behind the blogathon is to help push bloggers to posting regularly and to think outside the box of their usual posts. That means there are theme days and bloggers are encouraged to do guest blogs. As well, we visit blogs that we may not normally, giving us an opportunity to learn more about what others are writing about.

So, how am I going to do this year? Last year wasn't has hard as I thought it would be but it wasn't quite as easy as I thought it would be either. I have to admit, the results were rewarding and I was happy that I stuck it out. I write about topics that affect many people and even if you aren't personally touched by the topic, you may know someone who is. I like to get people thinking about different issues and although they're not always health-related, they do have something to do with quality of life.

Last year I asked what people would like me to write about and I did get some suggestions, both in the comments section and privately. So, I'm asking again. What topics interest you and what would you like to see addressed here?

And while you're at it, why not go over to WordCount and see what the other more than 200 bloggers are writing about this month. You'll find everything from hobbies to sports to tech to spirituality, and more. Maybe you'll even find a blog that makes you think "wow, I could do that!"
