The New WordPress Daily Prompts

In my Fandango’s Provocative Question post earlier today, I wrote, “After ending its daily prompts at the end of May 2018, the brilliant minds at WordPress apparently decided it was time to resurrect it.”

Some of you have commented on that post that you hadn’t seen these daily prompts and asked where they are. I blog exclusively on my iPhone, so what I see may be different from what shows up for you. But on my iPhone, this new WordPress daily prompt shows up on my Home screen when I open up the iOS app each morning (see screenshot below).

And speaking about daily prompts, I just saw this WordPress announcement in my Reader:

Bloganuary, according to WordPress, “is a month-long blogging challenge in January, where you’ll receive a daily writing prompt to inspire you to publish a post on your blog. You can respond to the prompts in any way you like: a story, a picture, a poem, a drawing, a recipe, or even a song. Anything goes!”

Seems WordPress has done a complete about face after abandoning its daily prompts four and a half years ago. It’s now bringing them back in spades — a new daily prompt each day on the Home screen and a separate daily prompt every day in January.

I guess what goes around comes around.

    I very rarely visit my Home Page, but when I just went there, sure enough the WordPress Daily prompt was there.

      🙂 Sorry, Sadje. Do not bother to try; it is not available on the WordPress Mobile App.

      On a positive note, you will find the WordPress daily prompts on the home page of the Jetpack Website Builder App or on the dashboard area and the Block Editor of the web version of WordPress.

        Renard, see my response to Sadje’s comment.

        Yes those I’ve found since the day I installed it. But they are different from WP prompts/ questions. I’m not looking for new prompts to follow as my week is already too full. It was just curiosity.

      I think I know why you can’t find it. At Renard’s suggestion, I installed the iOS Jetpack Website Builder App, which is close to an exact duplicate of the WordPress iOS app. But for some inexplicable reason, these WordPress daily prompts are displayed on the Jetpack app Home Screen, but not on the WordPress iOS app Home Screen, which is very strange.

        Are they same questions or different?

          They’re apparently not on the iOS app at all. Just on the Jetpack iOS app and on via your browser.

    I think Bloganuary becomes a new site on you blog. Everyone’s images and comments are also there. I dunno good luck.
    I joined last year and had a hard time getting out of it. I had hundreds of images and comments. 😐

    I’ll give both a miss. I prefer the prompts my blogging friends post reliably regardless of payment 😡

    I found them too. I don’t automatically go to my home page anyway, so will miss more than I see.
