It's that time again: another Blog of the Month.

**Two Days Left**

But first

The Silver Blogger's community seems to be settling into one of steady growth - that's good. Delegations, too, continue to bolster our account and voting power: now, the numbers are too great to list, but are nevertheless greatly appreciated.


If you would also like to delegate, there's a nifty table to help you at the end of this post. Alternatively, you can do it from your wallet.


August theme:

Musical Memories

one song for each decade - at least four - of your life

To enter

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

  1. Posts must be in English and obviously centre on the week’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 silver-bom-entries channel (open to subscribed members only).

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


The community description is a guide to content we welcome in the Silver Bloggers' Community. Folk who post content that doesn't jive, will be encouraged 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.

Deadlines and prizes

The contest closes at midnight GMT (also known as UTC) on Thursday 18 August and the winners will be announced later the following week.

The winner gets

  • 50% of the liquid rewards from the post announcing the winners. His/her account will be set as a 50% beneficiary
  • 10 Hive sponsored by the Silver Bloggers community
  • 10 Hive that @lizelle sponsors

The runners up win, too

Thanks to our founder Silver-Blonde Lizzie, the runners up will also receive 5 Hive each, and we have allocated another 5 Hive from the community account for the runners up.

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

Would you like to sponsor a prize?

If you would like to sponsor a prize, please comment on this post and tag one of the team: @lizelle, @fionasfavourites, @coquicoin or @tengolotodo or ping us in our Discord channel.

Theme suggestions

If you have topic suggestions, please tag one of the team (@lizelle, @fionasfavourites, @coquicoin, @tengolotodo) and leave them in the comments?


Themes can be anything you like within the Silver Threads preferred for this community. Content creators will, of course, make of them what they will.

Last pressure

If you're a bit like me, and not a herd animal and I don't do well being pressured - by topics or deadlines. The #bom and #silverprompts are intended to nudge and inspire. So even if you don't get your post done by the cut-off time, we will still consider it for curation (no prizes, though).

Speaking of curation, if you're inspired by other things, we look forward to reading your posts. We manually curate and recommend good content for support from OCD. The team also regularly picks quality posts and showcases them - read the most recent selection here and do pop over and read the Silver Prompts Selection.


We would love to get more eyes on this post and all community posts from - @hive-106316 - our Silver Bloggers account. Thisis why we make a point of reblogging your posts. Please do the same?
