Tsh Oxenreider is the full-time blogger behind Simple Mom and the founder and creative director of Simple Living Media, a blog network dedicated to helping people live intentionally (while throwing perfection out the window). She thinks a library card, a Netflix subscription, and a passport are some of the greatest parenting tools in the universe.
She’s a wife to Kyle, mama to Tate, Reed, and Finn, and is the author of Organized Simplicity and One Bite at a Time: 52 Bites for Making Life Simpler. She is currently working on her next book.
Tsh and her nomadic family currently live in Bend, Oregon, but several dots around the globe have also been called home (her 7-year-old has been on 53 airplanes and counting). Together, they love to travel, read books, go camping, and make homemade pizza for Friday Family Movie Night.
Aside from the changing leaves, the pumpkin spice lattes, and the college football, one of my favorite things about October is the annual 31 Days series on the Internet. This was a simple meme started by Nesting Place several years ago, and it took off like a rocket.
It works just like it sounds: bloggers write for 31 straight days, about any topic they want. The purpose for the bloggers is to push themselves as writers and creatives, and to generate a passion in their readers about a topic they already love. The benefit for the readers is continual exploration about a specific topic, almost like reading a story from beginning to end.
With over 1,200 series this year—twelve hundred!—there are more options than reading time. But it’s still one of the few times in the year I make a point to really read some blogs. Here are some of my favorite 31 days series this year:
1. Dawn Camp: Before & After Shots
Dawn Camp is one of my favorite photographers, and she spills the beans on tons of her photo editing secrets in her 31 Days of Before & After Shots.
Such admiration for these people publishing for 31 solid days. I just may do it next year.
