NaBloPoMo


NaBlo....what? It's short for National Blog Posting Month. Kinda cheesy? Maybe, but oh so fun! The idea is that you post at least once a day every day in November. It's a challenge, of sorts, good for getting the creative juices flowing, they tell me. Either that or just an incentive to post mindless drivel. But hey, that wouldn't be too far off, anyway...

I figure I've been doing nearly a post a day for the last while now, so it might be fun to take on this challenge. Just for fun. Just to procrastinate learn to better express myself in written form. Heh.

So... I've been seeing lots of folks posting about signing up for NaBloPoMo, they're up for the challenge, yadda yadda yadda. OK, OK, I'm in! So off I went to sign up...

... but I missed the boat.

The list closed yesterday (naturally, as it was November 1). D'oh!

Well, who needs them, anyway? ;) I'm gonna be the rebel... go out and make it on my own! I am blogger hear me... type? (Leave me alone, it's late, and I just finished a nearly 5 hour marking marathon!)

So here ya go. This is me saying I'm gonna post every day for the month of November. Hopefully that'll make you want to keep coming back, not run away screaming! :D And lookie here, this post counts!

See ya tomorrow!

I look forward to reading all the posts! Also, I thought you needed a comment at 4:45am in the morning! Just so you know that while the rest of the world is sleeping soundly, there is someone lurking and reading your site :)

Yay! I'm excited!

I thought it would be fun, too, but I'm out of town this weekend, and so I would have failed right off the bat!!!!!

I missed the boat too :(

Paul said...

...and I thought I was the only one who read this blog in the middle of the night...

...except it's not night...

...but somewhere it is...

...now I'm confused.

Paul said...

Oh, and strictly speaking you're probably not eleigable as you're in the wrong nation.

I'm definitely in the wrong nation. Does that mean I'm not allowed to update my blog for yet another month?

Hillary said...

SarahD - woohoo! Man, I haven't seen you guys is SO long...

SarahCool - have fun this weekend!

Supermom - BE A REBEL WITH ME!!! *nods head excitedly*

Paul - It's the INTERNET nation, man! Haha! I count, really, I do! And WHAT? You update your blog??? ;)

:) It is quite the challenge. I already forgot about yesterday and had to go back and post-date one. Don't tell, ok? EEK!!

Nici wrote a post in english, just for all the non-german speaking bloggers. Hello Hillary, I've enjoyed reading your blog for a while now, I'm one of the lurkers, so now I'm outed, I'm Niki's mom, she has a link to your blog. You sound like a great teacher!:) Monika

I will do this too. I'm good on posts for November so far.
We can call this CaNaBloPoMo for Canadian bloggers. And since Canadians are all really polite we could let other nations take part..

Abbey said...

Yeah! Good Job!! This is going to be quite a challenge for me, but we'll see if I can do it, too!

Have you guys seen the Canadian World Domination website?

the part that makes it AMAZING is the "letters from the disgruntled.." (nasty letters now) ie = letters from dumb citizens of the USofA. it is HYSTERICAL!

Queen Bee said...

I missed the official sign up too, Hillary, doesn't mean we can't take part anyway :) And I agree, it's the internet nation, not the country to the south that must not be named until they grant me status ;)

Jenn said...

blog on, baby! I *think* I snuck in under the wire...but QR isn't listed yet, so I'm not sure... :O

happy rebelling!

Abbey said...

Jenn, I think I came in under the wire too and have NOT seen my blog posted...hope I made it on time!

Katrina said...

Oh, yay, Hillary! So glad you're joining the ranks of daily posters this month! I love your blog. :D

And I checked out the Canadian Domination website--so funny! I couldn't stomach the email, though. I promise a few Americans do have a sense of humor!

Dear Canada,

Thanks for the cool bacon. It is my favorite pizza topping. Oh, and also for the geese--very beautiful. :)

Sincerely,
the U.S.

p.s. When you take over the world, can Red Green be the official delegate for U.S./Canadian relations?
