31 Days of Change

this year

It’s that wonderful time of year again!  No, I’m not talking about cool crisp nights and pumpkins and apple picking, I’m talking about my yearly October series where I write at you for 31 days straight with no let up.  I know you’ve all started your paper chains in anticipation.

last year

Last year we did 31 Days to a Better Dressed Nest click to read all the posts since I’m positive you have nothing else to do today, and it was so fun {for me} and most of you seemed to enjoy it or at least if you didn’t you kept quiet about it so this year, I’m doing it again, and the theme is 31 Days to a Less Messy Nest.   Now don’t worry, it’s not going to be tricks about cleaning.  It’s more like 31 days to real, simple, quick, beautiful ways to organize and make your home run more smoothly that will change your life but Darcy couldn’t fit that on a button.  And she calls herself a graphic designer.

And for the record, I completely copied ProBlogger and his 31 Days to a Better Blog idea that he introduced a few years ago.  His series is now an ebook and it has really influenced Nesting Place and helped me a ton.  If you have a blog and want to make it a lot better in 31 days, by all means, click on that button above to find out more.

Now for the very best part.

I’ve somehow talked 7 of  my dear friends to also do a 31 day series in October.  A group of women with all kinds of wisdom and topics.  I think you’ll agree with me.

:: 31 Days to Stress-Free Entertaining from Sandy at The Reluctant Entertainer
:: 31 Days to a Better Photo from Darcy at Life With My 3 Boybarians
:: 31 Days to More with Less from Jen at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam
:: 31 Days of Autumn Bliss from Melissa at The Inspired Room
:: 31 Days of Living Simply from Emily at Remodeling This Life
:: 31 Days to an Inspired Table from Kendra at My First Kitchen
:: 31 Days of Grace from Emily at Chatting at the Sky

The beauty of this series is that you can pick and choose which topics pertain to you and no worries, just like last year, the posts will be short and sweet and to the point.  No huge reading commitments.

Special thanks to Darcy for designing the button layout idea {I’m sure there are fancier words but you get the idea}, also, she told me I needed a dash in my button but I thought it was ugly.  So, it’s probably grammatically incorrect but, it sure is perty ‘taint it?


  1. Really looking forward to this! I just started “fallizing” my home, I refuse to decorate until I get some minor projects and organization done! Just LOVE your blog.

  2. Just became a follower of your blog and am looking forward to 31 days.


  3. Sounds wonderful! Can’t wait!

  4. Brilliant! I can’t wait for October. Looking forward to it :)

  5. Hi. I just clicked over from Censational Girl. I am really looking forward to the 31 Day series. I’m so excited to read what you and your co-horts are going to post that I linked you to my blog to share the info with my friends and family. Thanks for an exciting series.

  6. Love it! I’m sooo in. I need some motivation to finish up house projects!

  7. Oh my gosh! I have been hopping all over blogland looking for the 31 Days series only to realize it was not til October. Duh!!! September doesn’t have 31 days! I thought, “Oh well, maybe the nester is busy today and hasn’t had time to post. I’ll check one of the other blogs”. Again…DUH!!! Needless to say, I am truly looking forward to them!!

  8. Dearest Nester,
    I must confess I had been hoping for another 31 Days to a Better Dressed Nest… as I found you just at that time last year, and it transformed how I looked at my home, and I found the most amazing free or practically free (can of spray paint!) ways to work with what I already had. I spray painted my first… second and THIRD pieces of furniture, raided my yard for pretty plants to stick in glass jars, and just generally felt like I was not completely incapable of decorating my own home! *sigh* I AM currently in declutter mode, getting ready for the addition of two Haitian boys to our already family of 5, so I am sure this will be wonderful, too… only… maybe as the fall goes on you’ll have another little series of simple, quick missions we can do? <3
