It’s November 1st, and that means several different things: 1) Halloween was yesterday, 2) my dad’s birthday is tomorrow, 3) Christmas is right around the corner, and 4) it’s NaBloPoMo time again.
I’ve had a pretty spotty track record when it comes to National Blog Posting Month. Encouraged by my friend Ms. Jen, I managed to make it all the way through my first NaBloPoMo in 2007, posting something to my blog every single day in November. I bowed out in 2008 because I was traveling too much to able to blog consistently. I was back in 2009, though I resorted to some silly haikus to make my quota. 2010 was a bust, and last year I only managed a single blog post in November about the misery of a migraine headache.
So how about 2012? I’ve been back in the blogging saddle again recently and I’m really enjoying the feeling of writing for the sake of writing. I want to keep up the good work, and NaBloPoMo could be the incentive I need to do that. On the other hand, the next few weeks are going to be travel-tastic again, and I hestitate to commit to continuous blogging when I’m likely to crumble under the pressure around mid-November.
But nothing ventured, nothing gained, eh? Take the plunge, feel the fear, bite the bullet, write the darn blog posts. I’m not making any promises, but I’ll try. NaBloPoMo, here I (sort of) come.
