November is National Blog Posting Month. Write at your blog once a day, every day, for the 30 days that hath November.
The whole thing started off as a goof based on National Novel Writing Month, the challenge of which is to try to write an entire novel during the month of November. Not everyone can commit to an endeavor of such magnitude, though, and so National Blog Posting Month was born.
The time has finally arrived: it's November's NaBloPoMo, the birthday of this blogging project AND its first month being in its new space on BlogHer.com. We are so glad that you've joined us. If you're new to NaBlo, you can learn more about its history here. Now, let's get this blogging party started!
November is the only month that doesn't have a separate theme. Instead, the theme for November is blogging for blogging's sake. As we always do in November, there will be prizes for participants who are writing daily. We have prompts lined up from writers and bloggers. And we'll be posting writing advice to cheer you on (sort of like water tables at a marathon) throughout the month.
You can currently sign up for November's NaBloPoMo by adding your blog name and url to the form. The blogroll is open until 11 pm EST on the 5th, at which time it will close to new entries.
I signed on last year. I enjoyed sixteen straight days of inspiration, and, then, crashed and burned, suffering a mighty case of blogger's block. Beginning this Tuesday, I will try again, and with gusto. Twitter, and Twitter-length (140 characters) posts, I won't count.
I challenge my fellow beer, wine, and spirits bloggers to join me on this 30-day blogsmith marathon. Once a day, every day this month, post to your blog: inspire, challenge, question, inform, ruminate, investigate, infuriate, drink! Just do it. Say no to Twitter (or at least allow the blog and it to co-exist for the month).
