Bloggers for Movember 2013 Begins!

Last year was an incredible year in the blogging world. Almighty Le Clown put together Bloggers for Movember which brought bloggers together for an amazing cause and allowed us to share our experiences with men’s health issues while supporting the worldwide movement that is Movember.  It was also my very first big blogging collaboration, which connected me with a slew of incredible people and bloggers and gave me the motivation and confidence to dive into so many other projects.

The infamous Jackstache of BFM 2012

So this year, I am taking the reigns of Blogger for Movember. I have a very important story I’d like to tell about the importance of muscling through those screenings and check ups, but for today, the official 1st day of Movember, I’d like to start by handling a few orders of business.

1. The new Bloggers for Movember 2013 team is set up and ready to go. All you need to do to join in on the campaign is visit the official team page, click join, and follow the instructions. You are now an official member of a special team of bloggers that are out to make the world a little better by creating awareness for men’s health issues. You don’t have to donate, but of course it is encouraged!

2. Shave it all off! If you haven’t done so already, it’s time to bust out your sharpest razor and revert back to your baby face. Mustache growing contests are yet another way to have some fun and support the cause. If you can’t grow a Mo, slap on a fake one (see aforementioned Jackstache).  Keeping the world up to date on your lip brow is a great way to direct people to join us all in the glory of Movember, so keep the pictures coming. Post updates on your blog, Facebook, and Twitter! And be sure to submit them to the BFM Facebook page by e-mailing me at Cord.Rebecca@gmail.com. Be sure to Like the Facebook page while you are at it!

3. We need more than team members and donations. We need stories. We need to offer what we do best. We need to write. One of the most amazing things about BFM 2012 was how many people had something to share in regards to their experiences with men’s health in general, prostate and testicular cancer, mental heath, and much more. I know there are more people out there who’s stories could possibly help save someone’s life. So let’s get to sharing! If you have a post you would like to dedicate to BFM 2013, please send the link to me at Cord.Rebecca@gmail.com so that I can share it on the BFM Facebook page and in update posts right here on 25toFly.

November will be dedicated to nothing but BFM 2013 here on 25toFly. Let’s do this MoBros and MoSistas! I’m ready to blow this year’s campaign out of the water. If you would like to join me and this years behind the scenes team, or have any ideas regarding the campaign, please let me know in the comments or by e-mail.

  1. Great stuff, Becca! I definitely want to be a part of this somehow.

    • That’s great news! You can join in by sharing posts, liking the BFM Facebook page, writing your own post regarding men’s health, joining the official Bloggers for Movember team/network, or by donating. Or all of the above ;). Thanks for the support man! Blog and Mo on!

  2. there’s a lot of redheads (and former) on this page.

  3. Hi Becca! I’m so glad to see you picking this up and running with it this year; it’s such an important cause for so many reasons. I will absolutely put at least a short post together for A Canvas Of The Minds, and I will share out your post through our social media.

    If you come up with any ideas for which Canvas (or myself) would be especially suited, please do let me know. I may be limited on some counts right now (due to illness), but I will absolutely do whatever I can to support your efforts and this wonderful campaign, and Canvas being a mental health blog, perhaps you might see a way we can contribute in more than just the ways I’ve mentioned.

    (Apologies, I’m a bit scattered right now. I just want you to know I’d be happy to use our resources if they could help!)

    • Don’t apologize for being scattered, I know all about that! I have been trying to get everything moving for Movember while actually moving into a new place myself!

      I can’t wait to read your post and share it within the Bloggers for Movember community. Y’all can also join the actual Movember team by joining our network

  5. Becca,
    You’re a good egg.
    I’ve reblogged your efforts here and I’ll do what I can, when I can.
    Best of luck to every Movember blogger.
    The Hook.

  6. Reblogged this on You've Been Hooked! and commented:
    Movember is here again, friends. Bloggers like Ms. Becca Cord are once again utilizing their skills to shine a light on men’s health issues while being entertaining and as unforgettable as always. Join in. Give what you can. Help direct the course of events rather being a slave to them.
    And remember, a little selflessness can do wonders for the soul.

  7. Becca,
    Great post! I couldn’t see anyone at the helm of this initiative but you, not because you have a magnificent™ mustache, silly… because you give a shit, all around. And I like that. Wishing you all a successful fundraiser this year! I’ll be watching you closely, but not too close, as I have a thing with B.O… Not my B.O., silly………….
    Le Clown+

    • Le Clown,

      My 2013 mustache will be something truly “magnificent™,” no doubt. I appreciate the kind words. I truly believe the world needs much more positivism. It’s so easy for people to give in to the negativity floating around out there, which is why I love Movember. I’m proud to lead the BFM movement you initiated last year on into 2013.

      P.S. Can you please stop watching me pee? It’s really unnecessary.

  8. Very cool! So much good stuff happens in this odd little month.

  9. I’ll be signing up, Becca! I can’t believe it’s already November.

  10. Ahh November is here!! :) Can’t believe time flew by so fast! I’m going to sign up now!

  11. I’m ALL IN this for this year’s Movember campain!!
