NaBloPoMo, 43 posts in 30 days!


Good job to those NaBloPoMo participants that managed to complete their 30 days, you should be a proud blogger!

Well thats it, today is that last day of NaBloPoMo. I ran across this blog jog a mere few days before Nov. 1st (the start date) and I am really glad to have participated in the challenge. As you may have already read, I am considering creating and doing the marathon version, 365 days of posting. I may or may not get this going. I am newly married, I bought a house earlier this year, am getting more involved with my church, and am trying to start a business on the side of my full time job. The good thing about posting for 365 days is that I would use it to document all of the changes that are going on in my life in the year before I turn 30, which might be nice to have later in life, but I am concerned with the semantics of keeping up when I am on vacation or away from the internet for more than 24 hours. I am still mulling it over and have some ideas about how to manage the hurdles of a year long blogging commitment.

For now, however, I will bask in the glory of managing to blast 43 posts in 30 days. My writing skills have improved and my ideas are just starting to really flow. So many things to say, such little keyboard time. I stretched my design legs with a few post graphics, found some great YouTube videos, wrote a few rants, and followed some new tech stuff.

I knew that I would have a few days of sitting down to stamp out a post and have nothing to say, but I have found that sticky notes and jotting memos on my Treo tend to help with the blank mind thing. It’s that same feeling you get when you walk into a music store and can’t remember any of the cds you wanted to look for.

I want to give kudos to Eden for creating NaBloPoMo. It’s a great idea and hopefully the 6280 members this year will turn into 12560 next year. I approached Eden about my Blog 365 idea and she was 100% behind it and offered to plug it if I decide to go for it and want to build a community around it.

If I decide to go for the Blog Marathon, you will be hearing about it.

Happy NaBloPoMo!
