When Even Your Kids Know What NaBloPoMo Means




I can't get my family's Sunday morning cinnamon rolls started just yet.

Today's morning paper will have to sit on the counter until this is posted.

I know we need juice and applesauce from the store, but our Target run will have to wait.

Everyone who lives with me knows it's November 1 and that's the same thing as saying NaBloPoMo.

NaBloPoMo for everyone! I know it sounds like a tasty hummus treat and it kind of is at that. NaBloPoMo stands for National Blog Posting Month, where bloggers post on their blogs every day for the month of November.

You can join in informally, by just blogging away on your blog OR you can join in on the fun of nablopomo'ing (because of course it's a verb) with a blogging community of support--through BlogHer's NaBloPoMo blogroll. You'll definitely meet new people, you'll be entered to win a BlogHer conference pass, and you'll never have to scratch your head or panic with a loss for writing prompts because BlogHer will be publishing daily writing prompts! (omg one more thing your blog post might be picked as a blogher feature)

So whether it's a kick start you need to getting creative juices flowing or seeking out new people to meet, you'll find both while breathing life back into a possibly neglected writing space.

Start today and join up. BlogHer November writing prompts are here. I'm all in: writing every day reminds me of how lucky I am and how much I love having my own place to publish my words.

*To add your name to join up with BlogHer for this year's NaBloPoMo click here.*

Just look at that, my first NaBloPoMo post for 2015. All right, kids, here I come, but before you get your cinnamon rolls, say nablopomo for me.

Now do it with a different syllable accent each time: naBLOpomo NAblopomo nabloPOmo nablopoMO. [my gosh but I love November]

    1. Hi, Joann: thanks for stopping by. The prompts are a lot of fun and really get the creative juices going, it's wonderful to see what our minds come up with. We all have so many fantastic stories to share.

    1. I understand, Amanda. What I love the most about nablopomo, and the reason I do it, is that when you have nothing to write about, the gold comes to the surface. It's like having to come up with something when you think the cupboards are bare... it's exciting how much is forgotten and dormant when there are louder easier pieces that float to the surface first.

    1. You do what you're able to do, that's what I like, the challenge is daily posting but if it only works out to be 3 time a week but that's an up from your usual then that is success!

  9. Thank you for sharing--I'm going to join. Of course I made the mistake of missing DAY FRIGGIN ONE because I didn't realize that Sunday was the first but uhm, I'm going to be diligent from now on. Promise :)

  10. I don't do it because I can't get the acronym right. Plus weekends. I don't do weekends. Sigh my life is so hard.
