NaBloPoMo 2008

November is the time of year when I give this blog a shake-up, and rediscover my love of posting with the help of NaBloPoMo. National Blog Posting Month is a challenge to post every single day in November, which – as many of you know – is a stark contrast to the haphazard way in which I usually update this thing!

I always emerge from NaBloPoMo feeling reconnected to the blogging community, and “back in the game”. I’m looking forward to joining in again this year.

I have decided to set myself a couple of additional guidelines this year:

1. Palin/McCain satire does not count as an update. I will continue to share the funny/scary stuff that I discover, but will have to post on at least one other topic in order to qualify.
2. I will be digging through my unprocessed photo negatives, and posting one undiscovered photo every day.
3. I will link to at least one interesting blog per day.

That means a minimum of two posts per day (one photo, one written), and an excuse to spend lots of time reading what other bloggers have to say. I have decided to set up a dedicated NaBloPoMo section in my RSS reader for other participants that I come across, so please leave me a comment if you’d like me to keep track of your blog too!

And, as always, please send me any interesting sites, articles, videos and webapps that you discover. I am likely to need inspiration on the days when I come home from work brain-fried!

So who’s joining me?

I am still tossing up whether to join in or not since I posted every day for a month in September as well.

I have less than 12 hours to decide if I am joining in- EEK!

I look forward to reading your posts and seeing your photos every day- hope it goes well!

I joined this morning, since I’d never done it before, but had seen other people do it and really like it.

I think I’ll have enough trouble remember to post every day without setting myself extra requirements though! šŸ˜›

Hi Lulu and Holly,

I see from your blogs that you’ve both decided to join in the fun! I’ll add you both to my NaBloPoMo RSS group so that I can keep track of your stuff over the next month.

Don’t be too overwhelmed by it Holly – I doubt I’ll put thought and effort into every one of my posts! Sometimes life just has to take over. I guess the point of this is to get into the habit of posting anyway – even if it’s just a photo and link to somebody else’s blog.

Good luck!

Im in!

I can’t think what Im possibly up against this month! But I set this challenge on my 101 nearly 10 months ago! Time to follow through!

Between NaBloPoMo, and NaNoWriMo.. my poor little laptop’s keyboard is going to be smoking!

But its always good to have inspiration from others. (And its always good to have personal challenges.)

Its great to see you posting! My RSS feeds are grinning!
