2018 has been quite a mixed year for blogging, so I took a little break for a little while. However, I’ve started to develop my posting schedule, have suddenly found myself with a whole list of content ideas and was quickly reminded of the sheer joy it brings and just how much I missed it. I also miss the connections that I have with some of my online friends and their posts… 

During October a number of my writer friends start to plan for National November Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) with the goal being to write 50,000 words. To coincide with this, I’ve set myself the challenge of participating in my own little National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) but on my own terms and will be posting every single day for the entirety of November. 

Thirty days, thirty posts.

It isn’t something that I have ever done before (I’ve only posted just fifty times during 2018 so far) and while I can imagine that it will become more difficult as the month goes on, I need to gain the satisfaction from actually achieving a goal – something that I don’t feel I have been able to do this year very much. I’ve already informed The Bloke to expect my laptop to be a prominent feature in the living room (luckily, he’s very supportive of it) and felt it necessary to announce it here too, just for accountability. 

Wish me luck! 

What about you guys? Are you participating in NaNoWriMo this year?

  1. Just started today with a 30 day journaling challenge. Day 1 – Who Are You? Been staring at a blank piece of paper for the last 35 mins .. going well so far then!!!!

  2. Good luck, looking forward to reading what you can think to write every day for 30 days, certainly a challenge. I’ve kept a diary on an app called Daylio, though it’s a bit easier because the only audience is me so I can write whatever I like, so far I’m on my 161st consecutive day. Annoyingly I let it slip in April and most of May otherwise I’d have a whole 365 days by now.

  3. I don’t think I have time and energy to write that much. Writing 8 posts a month itself is a big challenge when you are not a full-time blogger! All the best Suzie for the challenge!

  4. I am going to do nablopomo, I just don’t know how I am going to do it. I was hoping there would be a group, kind of like how nanowrimo is organized. But it seems there isn’t any organization. As for you – writing for 30 days in a row is a huge challenge! I’ve never completed it correctly. But you will learn so much about yourself and your audience. Every blogger needs to do it once. Good luck!

  5. Good luck with your challenge! My goal is to post every single day – and if I can’t do it, I will reblog a previous post or better yet reblog someone else’s blog – to showcase great stories from other bloggers….I will do that for you this month!

  6. I am participating in NaNoWriMo this year – for what I’m considering my first serious time. I have a thought-out idea, characters, and plot points written down, but the biggest difference I’m feeling this November is with my level of enthusiasm! I’m so excited to take on this project, and that feels great. Good luck to you with NaBloPoMo; will be looking forward to reading your posts throughout the month during any of my episodes of writer’s block/meltdown/short breaks. 😉😊

  7. Best of luck Suzie. Not sure I have the self-discipline to post for 30 consecutive days. have you planned what you’re going to write about or are you hoping it just comes to you each day?

  8. I’m too much of a wimp to do NaNoWriMo. I could not cope with the stress of not writing every day.

    Good luck with your challenge. I know you can do it.

    Me? I’ll be finishing my edits for the next book. If I can achieve that, then I’ll be very happy.

  9. Doing NaNoWriMo for the first time. Three days in and 7000+ words written. Loving it, but can I keep going for a whole month? We’ll see. Fingers crossed. Welcome back, I’ve missed you.
