Because I seem to love to find ways to motivate myself and then immediately fail at all of it … I’ve “signed up” for NaBloPoMo 2016.
WTF is that, you may ask. Well, I think most people have heard of NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month – when people take their entire November and attempt to write a Novel. I’ve tried that one a few times. The best I ever did was about 5,000 words of nonsense. Writing a novel is just not for me. I’m much better suited to just spout nonsense and share stories about my ridiculous life. Nonsense and ridiculousness come much more naturally to me. And while I do tend to live in a fantasy world most of the time … converting that into something that would be entertaining or appealing to anyone other than myself is just not something I seem capable of at this point. So I’ll stick with what I do here and just try to do that better instead.
NaBloPoMo is National Blog Posting Month and I am doing it through the wonderful BlogHer platform. BlogHer is part of She Knows Media, a women’s lifestyle digital media company. Not to sound like Captian Obvious, but BlogHer is a community for women bloggers. So yeah, pretty self explanatory. Go check ’em out. They do great stuff.
The goal is to write a blog post every day in November. So far I am short one post, as I didn’t think about this until the 2nd and therefore, missed the first day. But whatevs, in my continued attempts to turn myself into a more chill person … just gonna let that one go and move on to the next one.
So if you see the NaBloPoMo picture on my sidebar and wonder what it is for, now you know. This is also your chance to check up on me and my progress. Will I be able to hang with this and post every day? Who the hell knows. In the past I have not been able to make it happen, and I may not this year either, but I’m gonna try at least and we’ll see. Yes, some days you may only get some stupid Meme or other lame attempt at a post. But hey, this is my blog and I make up my own rules. And you never know, I could surprise even myself and actually pull it off! I have been known to surprise myself in the past. God knows I surprise everyone else on a daily basis.
Side note – this is my SECOND post for today. Boom!
