Let's talk about blogging

The other day, Faith came up with an idea to blog every day in July. When she first told me about her plan I was like, "Cool story bro," and when she suggested I do it with her I came up with every excuse under the sun. It'll be hard. I don't want to. What will I write about? It sounds like a lot of work and you know how lazy I can be. But Faith and Allie ganged up on me and wouldn't let me say no, and the more I thought about it the more I was like, "Ok fine this isn't such a bad idea." The more we talked, the more we decided it might be a cool idea to have other people join us and we decided to make this open to everyone. We even made a cool looking button if you decide to join us. And you will decide to join us (this is me Jedi mind tricking you into joining us). Come on, we'll have fun!

And because we are really nice and stuff, we figured we would just go ahead and give you 31 topics you could blog about. So let's get this party started, shall we?

July 1st: Canada Day - Yes this is a real thing. Kind of like Independence Day for us in America. So because one of our lovely hosts is Canadian, we're going to celebrate with her. Want to know all about Canadia? Pose some questions about our lovely neighbor to the North and Faith will answer all of them for you. Ask her what they call semi trucks in Canadia. ASK HER.

  3. Love this idea! And having topics for those days you have nothing to write about is great! I'll try to play along but can almost guarantee I won't be making it every day since I have some holidays coming up in July

    I'm also really curious as to what Faith calls a semi - I'm from Sask and we call it a semi here
