I decided to do a blogathon for the month of August for fun (calling it the “Augustathon”), but decided to include in the list in case anyone else wants to participate! If you plan to also do this, please comment on this entry so that I can add to the list. A lot of these topics are thought up by myself, from here, or from old blogathons I participated in.
Day 1: Who are you?
Day 2: Who is your favorite villain and why?
Day 3: What did you want to be when you grew up as a child? How closely similar is your current career path to what you wanted as a child?
Day 4: Why did you start your blog? Is that still why you blog, or has your site gone in a different direction than you’d planned
Day 5: Our blogs morph over time, as interests shift and life happens. Write a post for your blog — but three years in the future.
Day 6: Wordless Wednesday, share one of your favorite photos!
Day 7: What is your favorite quote? What is it from and why do you like it?
Day 8: Look for an old blog entry on or around this date. Share it. Have things changed since that post (depending on what the entry is about)? Any additional thoughts on it?
Day 9: Write a story about yourself from the perspective of an object, thing, animal, or another person.
Day 10: 5 years ago, what were you doing? How does that compare to now?
Day 11: Check your site’s stats and post the search history for your site. Thoughts?
Day 12: Who is your fictional hero and why?
Day 13: What was your favorite toy as a child?

Day 15: What was/is one of your favorite and least favorite subjects in school? Why?
Day 16: What book are you currently reading, current thoughts on it? If you’re not reading a book currently, what are some books you are wanting to read?

Day 25: The world is ending tomorrow, what would your last meal be and what would you do? Note: there is no chance of survival!
Day 26: It’s a miracle! Everyone survived, but now there is a zombie apocalypse in our midst – how do you handle it? Where do you go? How do you try to survive?
Day 27: What is the thing that you fear the most? Why?
Day 28: Have a tattoo, what is it of and why did you choose it? If you don’t have one, what tattoos have you considered? Why haven’t you gotten any of them done yet?
Day 29: What is one thing that you miss? Why?
Day 30: If you could permanently ban a word from general usage, which one would it be? Why?
