Blog of the Month - New theme for Tuesday 19 July

BoM - from our youth the current youth don't get.jpg

We're late with this month's blog of the month theme. We have all had things going on, and in my case, ongoing tech issues which make me hark back to a time when things were a lot more simple.

I take full responsibility. It was prompted by a question on Facebook:

What is something you'd never have said in the 1980s.

My response:

Where's my phone?

Because we're late, I'm making this short and sweet and getting straight to the point.


This month's topic:

Things, or memories, from (y)our youth that today's youth will not understand or have seen

If you know, instantly what's in the graphic above, you have stories to tell. Please share them in your contribution to the July edition of the Blog of the Month.

Deadline: Tuesday 19 July, midnight, UTC


To enter

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

  1. Posts must be in English (or with a translation from your home language) and obviously centre on the month'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 and in our Discord channel which is open to subscribed members only.

Word to the wise:


If you don't follow the rules, your entry will not count.

Also -

Do follow the #BoM tag so that you can easily find, upvote and comment on other contributions.


The community description which you will find here, is a guide to the content that is welcome in the Silver Bloggers' Community.

We will encourage folk who post content that doesn't jive, 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.


This round closes at midnight GMT (also known as UTC) on Tuesday 19 July 2022 and the winners will be announced later the following week.

The prizes

Thanks to Jackie O'Silver, our prize pot has been topped up a bit. So -

The winner gets

  • 10 HBD/Hive that @lizelle sponsors

The runners up win, too

Thanks to our founder and Silver-Blonde Lizzie, the runners-up will also receive 5 HBD/Hive each, and we may be able to allocate another 5 HBD/Hive from the community account for the runners up - we'll look at what's left in the pot!

All prizes will be sent directly to the winners' wallets.
