It’s November so that means it’s time to stop shaving and start blogging. NaBloPoMo 2016 started yesterday and I am all in (so far).
This is the first time I’ve done one of these 30 day deals. I’ve had many friends over the years take part in NaNoWriMo, and honestly, I think they’re nuts. I could probably pull off 50,000 words in a month, but the odds of them coming together in one cohesive piece of work is a completely different thing. Which is the point. The idea is to write, get the words out and worry about the editing later.
NaBloPoMo is similar but instead of writing a portion of that 50,000 word novel each day, you only have to write one blog post a day. And, the blog post you wrote yesterday doesn’t have to have any connection to the blog post you write tomorrow. You just have to write a post.
I can do that.
Even though I have never published 30 consecutive posts in one month on the same blog (for work I write many, many more than that each month, but for several different blogs), I am confident I can do this. If I can come up with 30 topics, I can easily write the posts.
If you’d like to take part in #NaBloPoMo 2016 head on over to Blogher and sign up. If you sign up before November 5th you’ll be entered for a chance to win tickets to Blogher 2017 (it’s in Orlando next June!!). If you have more than one blog that’s ok, you can sign as many blogs up as you have the time to write. You can even follow join the Writing Lab Facebook group for daily writing prompts.
I learned of #NaBloPoMo from Melissa Wells at Suburban Scrawl, so I’m going to pay it forward like Melissa did and link up anyone who wants to participate. Feel free to leave your link in the comment section and I’ll add it to this post.
Alright then, let’s blog our butts off!
