Behind The Scenes With A NaBloPoMo Blogger

As of today I’m one-third of the way through my commitment to post something on this blog every day this month.

√  I’m amazed by how easy it is for me to come up with ideas about what to write here each day.  I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised;  I’m a generalist after all. 

  On the flip side, I’m worn out by the actual writing and posting of said ideas.  Daily posting takes more time than you can possibly imagine– says the free spirit who usually keeps this blog on a more casual basis.

  As per my desire to meet more bloggers, I’ve introduced myself to 10 bloggers who are also doing NaBloPoMo Seven have stopped by here to say “hi!” right back.  Good to know that there are other people who are willing to reach out and meet someone new.

  The total word count on my posts to-date is: 2765.  If I was doing NaNoWriMo, which asks a person to commit to writing a 50,000 word novel during the month of November, I’d be at the 16,667 word count mark by now.  Clearly, I’m a blogger and not a novelist.  A woman’s got to know her limits.

  1. oh thank you thank you! I’ve been wanting to find another person doing the NaBloPoMo!! I’m ssoooo tired – and it’s only day 10! I have tons of ideas but the writing is the consuming part. I love it and hate it all at once. Utlimately, I’m still pretty stoked – but it’s good to have someone else on WP in the mix. I’ll be checking on you!

  2. Boy Mom Blogger, thanks for stopping by and introducing yourself. I agree that it’s the writing part that takes me forever to do. I said that I’d do this for one month… then it’s back to my usual 2 or 3 posts per week schedule.

  3. Meeting new people is the best part of NaBloPoMo. I’m running low on ideas and soon total crap posts about nothing will be coming out of my computer. I tried Blog365 one year and made it to May so surely one month won’t kill me.

  4. I admire those who attempt this annual blogging challenge.
    I just don’t think that I could manage it, but I know people who have managed daily posts (or close to it) for YEARS! Good luck with it.

  5. Margaret, I think that you’d be able to do this project in November when there is no set theme. The other 11 months of the year you commit to writing about a specific topic for the whole month. That I couldn’t do, but talking about whatever I want to say I can do. For one month. Once in my lifetime!

  6. I’m impressed you’ve made it this far! I missed days 7, 8 and 9. Not sure I’m going to be able to do anything with today (11). Maybe you will be a novelist next year? Never heard of blog365 either but will definitely be Googling that one. Need new challenges. Polly x

  7. Polly, I’m amazed that I made it this far, too. I like doing NaBloPoMo, but real life gets in my way– and it’s going to be even more in my way as the month progresses.

  8. Thanks for the mention! I really appreciate it! 🙂

    I *usually* do okay w/ NaBloPoMo, for as much as I complain about it. I haven’t yet had to resort to digging out a picture and posting that as a Wordless Wednesday type thing, so I think I’m good so far! haha

  9. I confess, I did just that this Sunday, after complaining that others did it last Sunday. It was a good photo though, and we’ve had 3 4th birthday parties this weekend, so really I’m just grateful to get anything on the blog at all! Polly x

  10. Polly, I like the idea of posting one photo, really I do. I just thought that for this project I’d try to keep my blog posts more wordy and linky. But, as I said above, I’ll go that route if need be.
