Blog of the Month - New Theme for Tuesday, 18 October
It's that time again: for another Blog of the Month.
Things on the Hive are quiet and, if you don't know, Tuesday is also D-Day for a hard fork that probably won't have a material affect on most users. That said, if the blockchain is glitchy on Tuesday, that's why. It's the 26th since the original blockchain was started and if I remember correctly, Hive's 3rd. Read more about it here.
The Silver Blogger's community is still a few short of the now magic 1,5k subscriptions. Delegations now...
exceed 9,000 HP
thanks to the the folk who are either new delegators or who have upped their delegations: these bolster our account and voting power. If you want to know more about how we thank our delegators, pop over and read our most recent update here.
If you would also like to delegate, there's a nifty table to help you at the end of this post. Alternatively, you can do it from your wallet.
This month, we're going down a much more personally reflective path.
If you had the opportunity to travel back in time - for just one week - to change just one thing in your life...what would it be?
How to enter your post for the Blog of the Month (#BoM) - the criteria remain the same -
- Posts must be in English and obviously centre on the week’s theme or topic.
- Prose must be a minimum of 350 words. If it’s a photo or graphic essay, the photos must be your original work and preferably with some sort of back-story to the images.
- The blog must be posted in/from our community
- The account must be a subscribed Silver Blogger
- Use #BoM - blog of the month - as your first tag.
- Share the link to your entry in the comments of this post.
Consider following the #BoM tag so that you can easily find, upvote, and comment on other contributions.
The updated community description is a guide to content we welcome in the Silver Bloggers' Community. Folk who post content that doesn't jive, will be encouraged to find an alternative and more comfortable space in which to play.
To keep things fair: the same person (account) may not win twice in succession.
In summary, last edition's winner may enter, but the contribution, like those of the judges' panel, will not be eligible for a prize.
Deadlines and prizes
The contest closes at midnight GMT (also known as UTC) on Tuesday, 18th October and the winners will be announced later the following week.
The winner gets
- 50% of the liquid rewards from the post announcing the winners. His/her account will be set as a 50% beneficiary
- 10 Hive sponsored by the Silver Bloggers community
- 10 Hive that @lizelle sponsors
The runners-up win, too
Thanks to our founder Silver-Blonde Lizzie, the runners-up will also receive 5 Hive each, and we have allocated the same from the community account for the runners-up.
All prizes will be sent directly to the winners' wallets.
Would you like to sponsor a prize?
If you would like to sponsor a prize, please comment on this post and tag one of the team: @lizelle, @fionasfavourites, @coquicoin or @tengolotodo or ping us in our Discord channel.
If you have topic suggestions, please tag one of the team (@lizelle, @fionasfavourites, @coquicoin, @tengolotodo) and leave them in the comments?
Themes can be anything you like within the Silver Threads preferred for this community. Content creators will, of course, make of them what they will.
Last words...no pressure
If you're a bit like me, not a herd animal, and don't do well being pressured - by topics or deadlines, that's ok. The #bom and #silverprompts are intended to nudge and inspire. So even if you don't get your post done by the cut-off time, we will still consider it for curation (no prizes, though).
Speaking of curation, if you're inspired by other things, we look forward to reading your posts. We manually curate and recommend good content for support from OCD. The team also regularly picks quality posts and showcases them - read the most recent selection here - and do keep an eye open for the next Silver Prompts Selection which will soon be published.
We would love to get more eyes on this post and all community posts from - @hive-106316 - our Silver Bloggers account. This is why we make a point of reblogging your posts. Please do the same?
Please Follow and interact with @hive-106316
Assuming you're (and even if you're not) a subscribed Silver Blogger please follow our "mother account". That way you're sure not to miss any updates, challenges, curation posts as well as brilliant subscriber posts that we re-blog.
It's easy to follow the mother account: here's how...
Go to https://peakd.com/@hive-106316 and check the steps in the two pictures here:
Hopefully the HF will go smoothly, and the glitches picked up in test the last few days are all sorted.
What an interesting topic, I am looking forward to reading backwards of some entries!
Let's hope it goes smoothly indeed, I'd like to get a blog in, but can't think where to start with this topic. Going to be very interesting indeed!
hehe I have no clue either 🤣🤣🤣
Traveling back in time to fix the blunders sounds like a good idea to me.
It's going to be quite a trip down memory lane! Look forward to see what you'd like to have changed @devania.
A great theme for the month and it didn't make me think of what phase in my life I'd go back to. Here's my entry done in third person pov.
Your story hurts. I hope you are stronger now and never, never, never give your self-steem in other hands. You are precious and valuable just as you are. Just by being you.
A big hug. 🤗
Hehe, it was of the past and it doesn't hurt now as it did before. Thank you for your kindest words and yes, I won't let that happen, ever again. Many thanks and sending you warm hugs too.

@ifarmgirl, you successfully shared 0.1000 LOH with @palomap3 and you earned 0.1000 LOH as tips. (7/11 calls)
Use !LADY command to share LOH! More details available in this post.
This is a good one. Interesting though I think I would need more than a week haha.
Hahaha, I could have written about more than one week too! Just pick one week & remember there's no need to drop the link in Discord any longer, only in this post :)
Hey I am following the mother account, but I never see your posts, any of them. Ideas as to what I've done wrong? I've followed the instructions in this post, twice now.
Hi @owasco, I don't understand why, will check with the rest of the team, that's very odd!
Hope you're keeping well, although I don't think one ever gets over the loss of a child.
Hello Owasco - if ever: when i check on your hive feed, i can find the silver blogger reblogs and even our posts... see the picture here 👇
maybe you follow too many hiveans... 😁 (just kidding)
Thank you for checking that, but I follow both you and Eric, and I think that is why that post shows up on my feed. I see the members I follow and what they reblog, but none of the original community posts. Perhaps I have just been missing them, but I have to go directly to the community to see posts announcing contests and housekeeping.
hmmm, i reblog them all. btw, a blog you follow is showing only once in our feed and when reblogged it just adds the info about that to the feed entry. #justSaying
i got one other point to check about this subject, that is: if we post to a community we can choose to included it in our blog or not. So, if we choose not to, that may isn't showing in any feed... but yet to confirm. 😌😁
I'm seeing them now!
Excellent - may had also something to do with the latest HardFork... 🤷♂
Time travel, finding space and time that fits the bill adequately is going to be fun reading.
Surprise, surprise I came up with a bright idea... Well only just, silver after all ain't we?
Step Back In Time my entry.
Here's my entry. Just a small warning it may be too much if you have been recently bereaved.
What a sad story @kaazoom, losing a child is the absolute worst thing to happen. Your son was a handsome young man, one can see the kindness shining through, I'm so sorry about your tragic loss.
My ineligible #bom - The Untold Story
C'mon Silver Bloggers, we're waiting to read your story ;)
sorry for the length of the post, I think I got a little passionate. LOL
It was a lovely story, thanks for sharing it with us 💕
Hi you beautiful Silverbloggers, this is my link to #bom challenge for the month.
Thank you for the opportunity to share with you all.
Thank you for your entry @artywink, it was very interesting reading about your dreams and how your life path changed.
Thanks @hive-106316 much appreciated.
This was an interesting writing challenge. There's a lot I could do with this particular topic, but it got me to reflect on a few things that I need to change in my life.
I know I've been inactive but trying to catch up. Here's my entry for this months BOM
Hi all, this is my entry. I was happy writing it. Thank you for the idea. 🤗
My entry for #bom
Oh Cristine, I can tell that this fact of life has made you suffer, if I had had the money I would have bought my grandmother's house and today it would be a great property; but I was very young at that time and nobody gives us good advice.
Now I have a property on the beach and I don't want to sell it, we have spent very nice moments there as a family. I will follow your advice.

This is great contest and the prompt just goes according to what is in my mind.
This is my submission
Here is my entry
It's really an amazing prompt.
Hi my Silver Friends!
This is my participation:
This is a late entry but I travelled back in time by a week and made it right. 😉
I'm looking forward to reading the other entries over the next few days and catch up on that missing time.
