November is National Blog Posting Month

NaBloPoMo 2010

November is NaBloPoMo 2010, that is, National Blog Posting Month.

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 November. Not everyone can commit to an endeavor of such magnitude, though, and so National Blog Posting Month was born. However, after doing a November NaBlo for a couple of years in a row it seemed that a lot of people had found their momentum and wanted to keep going into December and beyond. So now NaBloPoMo is something you can drop into any month of the year, though November is still the biggest month, and is the only month when members donate prizes that are then given out randomly to other members who posted every day in November.

Things have gotten a bit lazy here at —only 11 posts in October, including this one, down from a high of 50 in June of 2008. (Curse you, real life!!) So, for better or worse, I accept the challenge. I publicly pledge to post at least once per day, beginning tomorrow, for the duration of November 2010.

UPDATE: I didn't make it.
UPDATE to the Update; I try again in 2011.

  • A tip of the pint glass to the many bloggers, beer or otherwise, who manage to do this every month. To mention one: Jay Brooks at the Brookston Beer Bulletin.
  • Tweets don't count.
  • November, thank goodness, hath only 30 days.
