NaBloPoMo - NoMo


NaBloPoMo - NoMo (National Blog Posting Month – No More). Wahoo! I made it. I successfully finished the NaBloPoMo by posting on my blog every day of November. I can’t say they were in-depth, thought provoking or interesting posts but I posted everyday for 30 days.

I didn’t think it would be too difficult when I first started even though I’ve read other bloggers who’ve done this say it was. I thought I could have several days in advance in the queue so that I was never under pressure to post that day. Unfortunately that didn’t work out as well as I had thought.

I actually found myself forgetting that I needed to post and there were several times that I barely made the 12:00 midnight deadline. Yicks!! Would I do the NaBloPoMo again? Yes, probably. Would I recommend you to do it? Absolutely. It’s a challenge that is reachable but not easy. You’ll get a sense of accomplishment without killing yourself like doing a marathon would. You also get the opportunity to meet others through this experience.

With so much excitement in finishing NaBloPoMo I decided that I needed to keep up the festive mood. You see this post is #98 which means two more posts and I hit the big ‘100’. Wow, little did I think I would ever have a blog let alone make it to a hundred posts.

To celebrate this auspicious occasion I decided to have a giveaway. Have a little goodie basket that will go to one of my readers. I don’t mean to keep you in suspense but I will post all about the giveaway on my 100th post.

So readers, thank you for sticking with me the last thirty days. I hope I didn’t bore you to death and that you’ll come back.

Remember to stop back and check out my 100th post giveaway.
