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