I saw this on F Yeah Lolita just after the first of the year and liked the idea and was kind of surprised it did not take off a bit better. At the time, I did not have my own GosuRori blog here rolling along quite like I wanted it yet, so I’m posting it on April 7, backdating it to January 1 with the magical help of the WordPress Djinn and will draw 2 topics per week until I am caught up. The slips of paper will go in a pretty but lidless teapot that is usually a flower vase. My posts will be tagged Lolita 52 as well and I’ll asterisk (*) the ones im likely to do more quickly though if asked, I’ll answer any requested ‘next’. Hopefully I will remember to X and link them as I go. (Yeah right)

Lolita 52 Challenge: A Lolita Topic a Week!
There are tons of blogging challenges floating around out there, but very few Lolita specific ones! So to kick off the new year and a fresh set of 52 weeks I came up with my own list of 52 questions. These range from simple preference questions, to advice, to lists, to questions that might have a more in-depth answer.
If you feel like attempting to tackle this list with me, there are a few ways you can go about doing it. You can either just go down the list at one question every week until the end of the year, or you tackle in all at once like a survey, or you can do what I’m going to do! If I see a list like this I’ll see questions on it that I might not feel like answering at the moment, for whatever lazy reason I have, so I will just dread doing it and give up, so what I’m going to do is write down these questions on little slips of paper then put them all in a jar. Every week I’ll pull a new one out and answer it! For me it will be a physical reminder to complete this challenge.
