I’ve been writing my blog for a just over year or so now, but I only discovered NaBloPoMo at 6.45pm this evening. NaBloPoMo, or rather National* Blog Posting Month, is the deceptively simple challenge of making one post every day for the month of November. More information can be found here.
Sounds easy, doesn’t it? At 10.30pm, after a glass of wine or two, it even sounds a bit like fun. The theory goes that if you do something often enough, it becomes a habit, and by practicing a skill regularly, you get better at it and it becomes much easier. That’s what I hope I’ll gain from participating in this challenge.
As a reader, however, you might just get a load of nonsense and waffling this month (and photographs: A picture is worth a thousand words as I recall a teacher saying. Although I don’t believe the marks I received for an essay on Macbeth reflected that assertation). But then, you might just be surprised, as the greater the volume of posts I can produce, the greater the chance that some of them are any good.
The countdown begins now!
*Why the challenge is “national” when it is open to global citizens in the borderless world of the internet, is clearly a question from which I might be able to spin out a post or two of musings in moments of mindfuzz towards the end of the month.
