It’s that time of year!
Starting November 1st, I shall be stepping up my game and madly striving to write 30 posts in 30 days for the annual NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) November Challenge.
This year, I didn’t prep. I didn’t plan. No thumbnail sketches. I don’t have any idea how I’m going to get started. Or any idea how I will end. But I am committed to trying and that’s all that matters. I’m not even entering my usual blog into this contest. It’s Aberrant Crochet all the way this year baby! (And this month, crochet as a subject is definitely optional.) I’m registered, got my badge up, I’m ready to go.
The first week is easy enough, the second week not too bad, come Thanksgiving and we’re all scrambling. “Excuse me dear child of mine… you volunteered me for what at the school Thanksgiving Feast??”
Cheer me on? Please? 😀
Good content, bad content, doesn’t matter. It’s all about making the commitment to sit down, to write and to publish every day, minimum one blog post a day, pushing our writing skills to the max and without exception! Even when all our ideas are dried up! Even though we have jobs. Even though we have kids. Even though we get sick. Even though our Thanksgiving turkey blows up. Whatever! Can ya do it?
Think it’s easy? Let’s see you try. Join us over at NaBloPoMo.
Leave a comment in this post along with a link to your blog (and brief description) if you’re participating so we can support each other and even non-participators can cheer us on! (We’ll need it closer we get to the end of the month, trust me!)
Supporters, post your cheers and websites liberally in the comments as well!
BlogHer recently took over the management of this challenge/contest (yes, there are even prizes), so the entry process is a little different this year. Be sure to read the links below if you want to get involved. It’s free!

Yup, I’m in too! I’m making my way through the Blogroll just saying hello to everyone as I can. Good luck …. you’ll find me at http://mvwindwalker.blogspot.com
Thanks for posting your blog Skipper! And best of luck too! I’ll use this list to help nag us all! LOL!
Thanks for bringing this to my attention on Facebook. I’ve never done anything like this, but in honor of my daughter’s intention to do NaNoWriMo at age 14, I will join the effort! Mine is the blog of an artistic Mom of four who likes to share photos and anecdotes pertaining to her kids, neighborhood and daily life as a 40-something wife, mom and artist. It’s been a while since I’ve posted with any regularity, so I look forward to using this effort to building a happy habit. Good Luck, and thanks, Julia!
It is a great exercise Lisa, and teaming up with your daughter will help you both! Thanks for posting your blog and I’ll be keeping up with you too! And good luck!
I am participating! Making my way down the list also!! I’m at

Best of luck to you too Lisa! I’m already scrambling to get my first post done, what with shows to get ready for. Ack!
I’m trying NaNoWriMo again this year, so I’ll be spectating on this effort. Cheers to all who spread Crochet enlightenment!
