Posts Tagged ‘blogging prompts’

*UPDATE: I’m blown away by the response to this series. Please note I now have a “revamped” version of this list with graphic prompts designed by Erica from CrashNotes. You can use them to turn your blogs into a printed 8×8 book for yourself/ family. Here’s the link to that updated post*

My blog has always been mostly a journal for me, but I also like to think that someday, my kids can look back and read this and laugh (hopefully when they are much, much older, considering some of my content in the past). My kids know me as “Mom” but I also want them to know I’m Jennifer, my own person, and I’ve been living my own life and learning from my experiences. I’m hoping this little journey of writing exercises will be something I can share with them someday to help them get to know another side of me.

I found a great list of 30 things to ask your spouse on Pinterest but my initial thought when reading it was “hmm, I’d like my daughter (and little son/daughter(s) to-be) to know some of these things (and more).” I altered a good third or so to fit the type of things I’d like them to know, and taking out things I thought weren’t relevant or wouldn’t be as interesting for them and created 30 things my kids should know about me. (Or shouldn’t, depending who you ask).

The idea is 30 things in 30 days, and while I’d love to do that, I’m not sure I’ll be so proficient. Especially being Christmas time, keeping up with pregnancy updates, and other random things. So I’m aiming for writing about these 30 things in 60ish days. Feel free to join along in this new list if ya like. I’ll link to my posts as I write them.

THE LIST:

1. List 20 random facts about yourself.
2. Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears (graphic version)
3. Describe your relationship with your spouse. (graphic version)
4. List 10 things you would tell your 16 year-old self, if you could.
5. What are the 5 things that make you most happy right now?
6. If you could have three wishes, what would you wish for?

30 things my kids should know about me - WOW, thinking about how this could have helped me if my own mother had done something like this. This will take some time, but it's perfect to kick off for/by Mother's Day.
