Alright, so who's already signed up for this year? Who plans on signing up, but didn't realize it was already open? Who didn't realize it was even that time of year yet? Who loves the event, but isn't going to join in the fun? And who doesn't know what the hell I'm talking about? :tongue

<<And who doesn't know what the hell I'm talking about? >>

Yeah, that'd be me ;-) Anyhow, I read the site and I think I'm game for it! It will be a very busy, crazy month and I'm more than willing to bet there will be days that I simply can't blog, but I'll give it a go anyhow.

Then you look at the calendar, and when the whole world goes, "Oh, I can't believe they're already playing Christmas music in the warden's office!" you'll know it's November and that is the month in which you post something to your blog every day, in accordance with the National Blog Posting Month challenge!

...Or simply use NaBloPoMo as a writing exercise, as an easier-to-accomplish alternative to the marathon that inspired it: National Novel Writing Month.
So, it's the SAME MONTH as nanowrimo, rather than October, which might make it a decent practice month to wind up to the full demands of nanowrimo.

Maybe I'll post a rant blog about this thing in every remaining day in the month of October...

30 days in a row... seems like you either can post short blurbs every day or content every couple of days... I don't think I could come up with anything useful to say every day but that is just me and the topics I blog on.

I launched a new blog just for NaBloPoMo. :)

It will be a "tarot card a day" blog, which guarantees me new material every day. I will also be offering online readings, to see how it goes.

I don't think I'd have enough content on my other blog to do it every day.

Yep, lots of people use it for other "write such and such for 30 days" events. It's tons of fun, no matter how you use it or what you write.

I signed up and thought I posted that I did here but I apparently didn't. Anyhoo, I'll be doing NaNoWriMo as well.

I did, Jessi. I've blogged every day for the past three months.

Gad.

Me! It went on vacation mid-month, and that made posting tricky -- but everything worked out.

I already have my comeuppance - I obviously can't type accurately at all any more ever!

Alas, I didn't make it...almost did though. But, we had a minor family crisis--toddler broke his arm, which put me off track. But, there is next year that I have to look forward to.
