It’s that time again…. 31 days!

on September 28, 2012 in 31 Days of Jokes with 21 comments by

Last year in October, I happily participated with Nester as she hosted 31 days. Living in Scotland and knowing what God was doing in my heart, it was super easy to know what I wanted to write about.

I did 31 Days of Courage. It was super fun and really timely for me and it was a real joy to do. If you’ve never read it, go for it. I mean, take it in bites- it’s probably a little more than you should digest in one sitting.

[But I’m not the boss of you, so do whatever you want.]

I’ve been thinking about and praying about this year’s 31 days. What did I want to write about? FOR A FULL 31 DAYS?

Writing a book? Being Perfectly Unique? The Word Revolution? Nashville?

I rolled a lot of options around in my mind and really thought through which would be the best.

And you know what I decided?

I don’t want to be serious.


You’ll be able to scroll through hundreds of 31 Day series from Nester’s blog that will be all the serious you need. And my life, while really fun and exciting right now, has enough serious writing to last me for a while. [Sadly, you don’t get to see it all YET, but you will. I promise.]

So instead, we’re going for funny.

I know. Shocking absolutely no one, I’m going for the laughs.

So everyday in the month of October, you can pop by AnnieBlogs for a short, clean, family-friendly joke. It may be my only post of the day, or I may have another. But you are guaranteed a joke that will make you laugh.

[Actually, you are guaranteed a joke that makes ME laugh…. hopefully you will enjoy it too. But I can’t control that, I guess.]

So saddle up, friends. We’re gonna tell some jokes.

. . . . . .

Are you doing a 31 Day series? What are you writing about?

    I love it! A good laugh at the start of the day is good medicine. It’s a great idea, Annie. Can we rank them? 1 to 5 stars? Just kidding. 😉

    This chica could use some laughs, so I will definitely be reading!

    I have never participated, but I kinda want to this year. Which is saying a lot for this hit or miss Blogger. Hmmmm…. Are you supposed to write about the same topic all 31 days? Hmmm…. 😮

    I found your blog last year through your 31 Day series. 🙂 And I will definitely be reading your 31 jokes.

    I’m blogging 31 Days of Great Nonfiction Reads.

    I clicked over from the 31 Dayers post and I’m going to be visiting often 🙂 31 days of jokes from someone funnier than me is just what I need this month.

    Love your topic!!! I’m writing “31 Days of Celebrating the Moments that Matter”. It fits my life right now and I’m excited about it!

    I think your series may be the one I’m most excited for. So fun! I’m doing a series on at-home toddler fun. And trust me, with my kids and my craftiness (or lack thereof), it should be pretty funny too. hehe.

    Not that I don’t love to ‘dive in’ to a really good in depth post, but a nice quick joke is a no brainer! Great topic…I’ll definitely be giggling along.

    For me it’s 31 days of ‘Pinspiration’.

    I LOOOOVE this! I have one or two family friendly jokes that seriously make me laugh every time I tell them, so if you get really hard up for good jokes… let me know 😉
    I am doing 31 days of FORCED frugality.
