August Healthy Living/Fitness Blogger Writing Challenge

This post contains Amazon links. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Last night I was brainstorming blog topics in order to put together an editorial calendar for the month of August. Then, as I reviewed my topic list, I realised I’m not likely the only healthy living/fitness blogger out there who struggles to come up with blog post ideas (am I?), and since I haven’t organised a challenge in quite a while, I thought I’d challenge you all to something a little different – to blog everyday for a month!

Here’s what you do:

  1. Add a new post to your blog (there’s a list of suggested topics below in case you get stuck)
  2. Share your post in my comments for that day.
  3. Read, comment & share others’ posts.
  4. Rinse, lather and repeat for each day of the month.

Simple? Easy?

On your marks….

Get set….



Here are the Writing Challenge Prompts:

Day 1 Your 5 favourite workout songs and why?
Day 2 Do you workout in the morning or at night? Why?
Day 3 Where would you like to be in 10 years?

  8. awe! I just found this — on day 22! I want in! I can I star from day 1 even though this is over?

  9. Brillant idea. I would like to jump in on the fun as well.

  10. This is awesome! Love the list too! I’ll be joining in later in the month when I get stuck for ideas 😉

    This is so great! Just this morning I was thinking I’ve only put up one post this week…what a slacker! Soo glad I came across your blog for some inspiration. I’m a little late into the game but better late than never!! Thanks!

  12. I have been taking this challenge since July, it really motivates me to do at least something so I have something to write about. So far, so good!

    Wonderful idea!! I’ve been trying to come up with the motivation to post daily so loving this challenge!

  16. I love this Janice! I’m glad I caught this before tomorrow, I’ll be joining in!

  17. ~jenniferlynn says:

    Great idea! Thinking about doing it, but committing to posting every day is tough for me 😉
    It really sounds interesting – do you think anyone would get annoyed by all of these short posts daily? I’m new to the blogging world, so don’t really know proper blog etiquette!

    1. Janice - The Fitness Cheerleader says:

      Good questions! Every blog’s audience is different, but I do find that a regular posting schedule helps readers to know when they might expect a new post to read. You could participate on Mon/Wed/Fri if you like or on any other schedule that works for you and your blog. Glad to have you join us!

      1. ~jenniferlynn says:
