Let the Madness Begin…Again

I’m a glutton for punishment, clearly.

NaBloPoMo 2011

 

I’ve done NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) twice in the past three years (only taking off 2009 because I had a 3 month old), so I feel compelled to try it again. I like the challenge of posting daily–when I’m on my game, I tend to post 4-5 times a week anyway, but something about it being OFFICIAL makes it that much more difficult. This year in particular, I’ve been so slammed at work (and tired after work) that blogging has kind of slowed down, so I’m hoping to use the month of November to get back in the swing of things.

Anyway, consider this my official descent into madness “I’m doing NaBloPoMo, so get used to seeing me every day this month” post.

Anyone else doing NaBloPoMo?

Usually I love trying NaBloPoMo, but I know I’d never make it this year.

So, what is the deal with NaBloPoMo and BlogHer? I kind of liked that NaBloPoMo was always a bit of an underground thing (underground isn’t quite the term, but it’s the best I can come up with on limited brain power), that a big name didn’t host it, the prizes were donated from all over the place, people put a lot of time and work into things like the Randomizer, just for the blogging community. I find it disappointing that it is a BlogHer thing now. For some reason, BlogHer just bothers me. I can’t go to the site without feeling icky, but I can’t put my finger on exactly why.

Hooray! I just started my blog this year, so I have not yet signed up for this, but I’m SO intimidated by it. I think everyone who does it is AWESOME and also? So much great reading material when the weather turns sour.

I haven’t ever done NaBloPoMo and don’t plan to start this year. For me, I couldn’t ever come up with enough things to discuss, so my posts would feel forced and probably wind up uninteresting.

So excited that you are doing this and a little scared that I am doing this! I figure this is the time to get all the posts that are jotted down on the back of receipts actually on the blog. Lets do this!
