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.
