Every day of Elul? Shofar, so good?

Pirkei DeRabbi Eliezer 46:1 — and yet . . .
After forty days, Moses took the tablets and went down to the camp, and on the seventeenth of Tammuz he broke the tablets . . . And then spent forty days in the camp until he burned the [golden] calf and ground it down like the dust of the earth,
And on Rosh Chodesh (the beginning of the month of) Elul, the Holy One, blessed be He, said to him (Exodus 24:12) “come up to Me, to the mountain.” And they sounded the shofar (rams’s horn) in the camp – since behold, Moshe went up to the mountain.
And therefore, the Sages, ordained that we should sound the shofar on Rosh Chodesh Elul . . . . each and every day . . .
