I have known about National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) since I lived in California and I still plan to participate one November. On November 1, I stumbled upon National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) on WordPress.com. I had a blog post ready to go on my business blog, so I hit “publish” and spent the next 24 hours debating whether I had it in me to publish a blog every… single… day for a month. It wasn’t an easy debate. For all of 2013, I have been struggling to write a post once a month. How would I find the time for daily posting?
The prospect of participating with a community of active bloggers is what finally convinced me to make the commitment. Two weeks in and I’m glad I did! I have been writing content every day since I haven’t been able to write ahead enough to schedule posts days in advance. It certainly hasn’t been easy, but I’m happy with what I have written so far. I am getting more inspired and, most importantly, I am getting more engaged with my blog and blogging in general. I also seem to be attracting a wider audience, but that will be clearer after the month is over.
Hopefully, after a month of daily blogging, I’ll settle back into blogging weekly in December and in 2014.
