Today is November 1st and with the groggy brain of a tired Mamma – after Halloween and a time change – I put this little bloggy woggy into the Blog Roll on BlogHer for November’s NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month).

Some of you may recall, I did it last year. It was great, actually.

Sure, there were nights I wanted to cry because technology plotted against me or the Universe appeared to be determined to pull a prank. There were days when I felt like I was really doing something great and was exhilarated by the exercise of posting every singe day for the whole month.

I feel that in the end it really was a terrific learning experience. I wrote more than I had up to that point and I learned a lot of little things about how this whole blogging gig works. I learned to think on my feet and keep a deadline. I learned that sometimes the silliest of posts will garner the most attention. I learned that, despite the fact that living a part of my life online means every single post needs a photo or pin-able picture to be easily shared, some posts will never have a photo because intrinsically, I also know that sometimes the words need to paint the picture.

I learned a LOT. Much more than I will share here at the moment because the hour is getting late and I will be darned if I am not hitting publish on day one!

Over the next 30 days I will post every day.

Some posts will be rushed. That’s life.

Some posts will be well planned and thought out.

I plan on brushing up some really good drafts I have waiting to be set free.

NaBloPoMo is just the push I need!

I hope you will visit, read, comment, and chat when you have something to ask or say or share.

If you happen to be taking part, please let me know*. If there is one thing I am good at, it is cheering others on and supporting writers!

Let’s make this a great month, filled to the brim with learning, leaping outside our comfort zones, and personal growth!

Onward!

 

*Feel free to share your blog or NaBloPoMo Blog Roll number (I am #596!) in the comments! I love reading new (to me) blogs.

    • Thank you so much for the vote of confidence. 😉 I really appreciate that!

      It is nice to know that people are reading. I plan on putting things here that are worthy of your time.

      I still have so much to learn. Thank goodness, though, because who wants to be a know-it-all anyway? I’d much rather be a let’s-find-out. 😀

    • Me too! It really was. One of the best things that happened, actually (besides learning that I really am capable), was getting to know a few bloggers outside of my usual circle of friends and faraway friends. There were some very excellent Twitter chats (which, as you might guess, I highly recommend) and I engaged in conversations that were life changing in many ways. At the very least they were very eye-opening. I also managed to tweet (like twitter meet) some excellent bloggers who are funny and smart, whose writing runs the gamut from silly to serious and everything in between.

      I am so happy you are doing it (kinda-sorta!). That made me so happy when I read it yesterday! Yay! Here we go!

    • Thank you so much! I really appreciate a good sideline cheer! (I am pretty good at that, myself.)

      I am taking the yucky kind of pressure off and applying only the positive, you can do it, pressure instead.

      Working under pressure can be good… but just like distraction, it must be the right kind.

      I hope to write things worthy of your reading time. 😀

  1. I don’t think I’m going to bother with the Blogroll this year. And I should reinstate my rule of not letting myself read anyone else’s posts until I’ve written mine. Onward!

    • It’s like the oxygen mask on a plane, sometimes, isn’t it?

      I love reading other people’s blogs – and I will always make a point of letting people know when I do. However, you are right. Sometimes you really have to do your own “stuff” first. Venture out later, when your own camp is set up. There will never be enough time to read all the things. Never.

      You can NaBloPoMo without a Blog Roll place. Of course you can. You know why? ‘Cause you are a grown ass woman! That’s why! 😀

      We should develop a NaBloPoMo-ish space. :p I bet people would join!
