I’m sure you all know that November is NaNoWriMo month. I’ve watched all my aspiring author friends with some jealously take part in this; it seems like such a fun event and a huge challenge. However I have no ambitions in this direction so I could only look on from the sidelines. BUT Anna @ Herding Cats and Burning Soup has come up with a bloggers version!
Anna brings you Blog Ahead! NaNoWriMo bloggy:
I’m so excited about Blog Ahead. It’s a pretty steep challenge; to schedule 30 posts by the end of November. *gulp* So that means a lot of blogging during the month to accomplish that. Plus I don’t just want to churn out posts, I want to write them and polish them until I am happy to send them out into the blogosphere. It’s not going to be easy but who wants an easy challenge, I want a challenging challenge and that’s why I’m signing on the dotted line or clicking on the linky, if you must be pedantic.
I’m going to use this post for updates and my thought process on how I feel during November doing this. And yes I know it’s only September now but this is such a great idea that I wanted to help spread the word about it. And how great will it feel on 30 Nov knowing that when the franticness of December hits that I can relax a little knowing my blog is ready for the season to be merry.
My goal is to aim for the 30 scheduled posts and just to give you an idea of how far I’ve slipped from scheduling posts, I will confess that as of right now I only have 2 posts scheduled. I’m eager to get back on the road to organised blogging. Roll on November!
WEEK ONE UPDATE!
This is hard! And I’m also still scheduling for November so that’s kicking my ass a bit. And another excuse….this weekend I’m taking part in HoHoHo readathon so I’m focusing on that a bit more. But I’m made progress! Not a huge amount but some. As of today, I have 5 additional posts scheduled. Pretty happy with that. What am I going to do with all this free time I’ll find myself with in December?!
