Blog of the Month - New Theme for Tuesday, 18 October

travel back to change.jpg

It's that time again: for another Blog of the Month.

But first

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.


October's theme:

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?

To enter

How to enter your post for the Blog of the Month (#BoM) - the criteria remain the same -

  1. Posts must be in English and obviously centre on the week’s theme or topic.
  2. 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.
  3. The blog must be posted in/from our community
  4. The account must be a subscribed Silver Blogger
  5. Use #BoM - blog of the month - as your first tag.
  6. 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.

Theme suggestions

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 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.
