NaBloPoMo: What The Hell Does That Mean?

November is known, in some parts, as National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short, encouraging folks to knock out 50,000 words of a novel in a month.

For those of us who aren’t inspired to write a novel, BlogHer, obviously a women’s blogging network, started NaBloPoMo—National Blog Posting Month. The idea is to write a blog post for each day of November, which is a tall challenge since I haven’t blogged regularly in over a year.

When I made a regular push to blog regularly, starting in January 2012, I really enjoyed it and felt great to express sometimes serious thoughts, funny thoughts, rants, and musings. Times have changed, though. I’m no longer a stay-at-home dad trying to figure out how to mentally stay sane with a 2-year old and a 6-month old at home.

Things have changed quite a bit in the last almost-two years, much for the better. During the month of November, I hope to share helpful tidbits, reflect upon the changes of the past year, imagine the future, and welcome many of the folks who’ve I’ve met—in “real” life and in the interwebs—to share more in my life.

Get Involved!

You should try this too! If you have a blog, start using it if it has grown dusty. If you don’t, is giving away free blogs. We always are giving away free blogs, but that’s not the point. Toward the end of the article about the month,’s Michelle W. shares a number of resources to get ideas.

If you are writing on, be sure to add the NaBloPoMo tag to your posts. I’m following the tag in my Reader and may, er, borrow some inspirations from there.

So, who’s with me? Let’s get some writing done!
