Book of Me Prompts – January 2018

© 2017 Julie Goucher

Welcome to the first set of prompts for the 2018 Series of the Book of Me. You can read when the prompts are published and about the few changes at my earlier post HERE

There are five prompts each month and you can undertake as many or as few as you wish to.

  • Who Am I? List 20 things that describe you
  • What do you look like?
  • What do you enjoy?
  • Who inspires you?
  • What do you want to be doing that you are currently not?

If you only do one of these prompts, do the first one. If you did an earlier series you may well has answered this question previously. Has there been any changes? If you haven’t done an earlier series then this prompt will repeat later,towards the end of the series and it is always interesting to see any changes. Remember, how we feel about ourselves is as important and perhaps more so than how others see us!

If you have any questions or want to share thoughts or a blog link, if you decide to share via a blog (remember to, that you don’t have to share to take part in the series) then please leave a comment. Further discussion is also happening in the closed Facebook Group.

  5. I love these type of challenges and even though I did my own All Bout Me last year, some of the prompts would give me different answers from what I wrote, so I’m thinking I will join in on this challenge and to give it a twist, I might ask my husband the questions and write ours together as one post. I think I will be getting less sleep this year as I’m also doing the 52 Ancestors in one Year, and I do the April A to Z challenge. But I’ll add this one to my list.

    I’m excited to discover, my journey, this year. Thank you Julie for this inspiring blog. Happy New Year.


    • Thank you for the lovely comment. I haven’t written much at the blog in the last 18 months, but have missed it. I have been involved in a project which I wanted to get completed before the end of 2017 before I begin edits and there wasn’t much energy left for other writing.


  8. Lisa Hill says:

    I’ve thought in previous years that I’d like to do this, but I haven’t felt ready yet. Maybe next year!


    • Happy New Year!

      Lisa the prompts will always be on the site (look under the Book of Me menu). You can join any time and share (or not) what you would like. Dip in and out of it as you wish. There is a Facebook Group which has many genealogists in, but not all!
