Once a Day Keeps the Bloodhounds at Bay

Tomorrow begins National Blog Posting Month - NaBloPoMo. Which, I must admit, is an obnoxious acronym...mostly because I can't ever remember how to say it.

It was because of NaBloPoMo last year that I decided to try my hand at blogging every day. Originally, I committed only to the month of November. I think I skipped a day or two in there but I ended up posting 40 entries during the month so I felt as though I'd met my obligation I'd made to myself and to you all.

After November, it just sort of continued. I discovered I liked blogging every day. Even when I didn't have anything to blog about, I viewed the lack of inspiration as a challenge. I must admit, I'm rather proud of my efforts. I just tallied the number of blog posts I've written since November 1 of last year and it's a whopping 419 posts (420 hee hee once I publish this one)! More than 1 a day.

So I've renewed my commitment to post each day in the month of November this year too.

I even made it official and signed up on the NaBloPoMo site which should make it a little interesting - because y'all know I'm a major commitment phobe and this cements it in stone...or something. I don't think I get punished for not meeting the commitment though. No public caning or verbal beat down...at least, I don't think (I've not read the fine print). But I could win a prize if I meet the challenge so, you know, presents! I like that.

If any of you who currently blog or have blogged in the past and want to get started again or who've never blogged but think you'd like to, sign up with me and take the Pepsi er...NaBloPoMo challenge with me. If you blog every day, I'll give you a present...likely in the form of baked goods.

Come on. Don't make me do this alone.

I don't keep a blog but I do like the idea of writing a little something everyday... Might have to just do that.

Only proven writing each day gets a baked good, Peej. You have to prove it.
