National Blog Posting Month

Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been blogging more recently. In fact, today is the seventh day in a row that I’ve posted on this blog. Hooray!

Some of you may also be familiar with NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. Well, I have no aspirations to write a novel, but I do sometimes need a push to blog more often. So I decided to use the idea of NaNoWriMo to inspire me to blog more often this month. I can’t promise that I’ll write every day in November, but I’ll do my best. (So far, so good!)

After I started this exercise, I discovered that blogging has its own November event: NaBloPoMo, or National Blog Posting Month. Not surprisingly, it’s inspired by NaNoWriMo. Surprisingly, I managed to miss my coworkers talking all about it here:

30 Days, 30 Posts: NaBloPoMo is here!

Well, I did notice that post over the weekend when I was catching up on the previous week’s emails and blog posts. (I just didn’t mention it right away — I had more interesting things to blog about in the meantime! Also, I admit, I wanted to make sure I could keep it up for a bit first.) But I figured I would mention it now in case anyone else wants to join in. Even if you missed a few days, there’s no reason to let that stop you. It’s kind of freeing to stop worrying about what exactly to write and just do it!
