Biting Off More than I Can Write?

November’s NaNoWriMo.  I’m all over that.  Imagine my surprise when I logged into Facebook this morning and saw a post from my friend TopChef about NaBloPoMo.  November’s also National Blog Posting Month!  30 posts in 30 days!  All in an effort to improve one’s writing, grow one’s blog, and maybe win a prize or two.  Any mention of prizes and I'm in!    
Now, I’m not the most disciplined of bloggers.  I mean my high point was in August when I managed to write 16 posts (what was going on in August?)  Let’s not even talk about October when this blog almost disappeared.  Sometimes, I just don’t have anything interesting to write about – I mean do you want to read about my commute back and forth to work every day and the eight-ish hours in between?  I didn’t think so.  And you certainly don’t want to hear my rants, like the one I almost posted last week about finding corrugated cardboard in a neighbor’s trash can on garbage day.  It’s two-thousand-eleven!  You should be putting your corrugated cardboard in the RECYCLING bin.  Doesn’t anyone care about our landfills anymore?  Okay, back on point…
I’m going to try really, really hard to post for 30 straight days.  I’m not sure I’ll have a lot to write about but I’ll do my best.  I can always fall back on the writing prompts on the NaBloPoMo website if I get really desperate.  Or I might just post random pictures of the kittens (they really are cute!)  Hey, it’s National Blog Posting Month….not National Blog Writing Month!   
So, it looks like I’ll be doing a lot of writing this November.  I’ll let you know how my fingertips are doing on December 1st!


  1. Hooray! When I saw your post about writing a novel all I could think was, "but what does that mean for your BLOG??" I'm so glad your doing both! I don't like the idea of a whole month without Tulips and Togas.

  2. *YOU'RE doing both* (it's good thing this comment wasn't on a post about improving your writing or something...)

  3. I think I might end up with carpal tunnel by the end of the month!! maybe I'll combine the two and post excerpts on the blog!
