30 Days of Blogging Honesty

Created by the wonderful Tom Baker and Cherlyn Cochrane (Click their names to be linked to their respective blogs), this challenge offers a question a day to be answered directly and honestly by the bloggers partaking in the challenge.

You must do all thirty days, although it’s alright not to post one every day if your schedule doesn’t allow for it. I am going to try my best to complete the whole challenge during the month of April, but we’ll see how things pan out. I may have weekends I am too busy studying for the LSAT. As I said in my below rant, that is extremely important to me right now, and I cannot compromise anything. I’ll probably get started writing out some responses now while I have the time and then scheduling them to be posted in a timely manner.

PS. I am going to kick off the honesty by stating that I will probably Photoshop myself a new banner (with a transparent background) because looking at the white bg on this one is killing me a little bit on the inside.

HERE IS A BIG FAT LINK TO TOM’S ORIGINAL POST ABOUT THE CHALLENGE!

 

But to break it down for my readers, if you’re interested in accompanying me on another month-long journey (I haven’t done a committed month of blogging since Poetry Paradise so it’s long overdue), here’s what you need to know:

The Rules:

1. You must answer 30 questions.
2. You must place the above graphic on each day’s post.
3. After the 30 days is over, you must complete one of the dares.
4. You must make every effort to reply to any and all comments left on your blog during the 30 Days and the Dare.
5. Everyone must make a concerted effort to visit the blogs of other participants and comment on their responses.

The Questions:
