Years ago, I was really into NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. The basic premise is that you write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November. It’s not supposed to be good (though apparently some people have gone on to get theirs published, to great acclaim. That was never my goal. It was more about the opportunity to be creative and write more.
I completed it one year, and never really found the drive to do it again. A bit part of that is just the lack of time. With work and training and life, it just wasn’t a priority. But I do like writing (otherwise I wouldn’t write a blog, now, would I?). So I thought I might take up NaBloPoMo – National Blog Post Month. Yes, it’s a stupid name, but it’s the same general idea as NaNoWriMo, in that I’m going to try to put up a post every day of the month.
Spoiler alert: I will fail.
But I’ve not been as great about my posting lately, and my training has also been off lately. I’m not sure which is the cause and which is the effect, but if I recommit to both, I should find great success, right?
Well, we’ll see. Does anyone want to join me in this endeavor? Yes, I know it’s already November second, but hey, no one’s perfect. If you’ve got a dusty old blog, brush off the cobwebs and put out a post or two. I’d love to see more of my friends writing again!
I love this idea! My downfall is time…work is super stressful this year and consuming TOO MUCH of my time. Maybe this would be a great way to bring the focus back to me and finding ways to make me happier. Thanks for the idea!

Great idea!!! I am in the same spot so will join in — and will also likely not 100% succeed 😀
I’d join you but that’d mean I’d also have to cook a LOT more than I do right now. But, I still support you!
I am participating… have been doing NaBloPoMo every year for more than 10 years now 🙂

I love it! I tried NaNo a few years back and failed. I know I won’t blog every day but I do hope to do a few more posts outside of my usual ones so that will be my goal for November. 😉

I’ll do it. I promised myself I would blog more anyway so what better way to jump start than this?
I need something like this! Except I feel like I’m already too late. Am I too late???
It’s never too late to start! Start now! And do what you can. I’ve already missed days and that’s okay. I am just using it as motivation to write more.
