Never one to shirk away from a challenge, I am now signed up to NaBloPoMo! I know it sounds like an infectious tropical disease, but NaBloPoMo is actually a natty little contraction of "National Blog Posting Month" where bloggers are being challenged to publish a blog post every day for the whole of November. It is organised by the folks at Blogher in the USA, but this year we are joining in thanks to nlpmum.com.
I am quite a prolific blogger anyway. But I'm using this challenge to reconnect with the reason I started blogging. That is to write about me, my life, my family, our adventures. I am going to try to write a daily post that is not review based, a competition post or sponsored. I do love reviewing and truly believe it is a completely valid part of the blogging world. However, I have become a bit lazy and not really stretched myself or my imagination to the extent that I should. So I am going to delve a little deeper and give a little more of myself this month. I'll still be keeping up with my review commitments
In the past I have found it very therapeutic to write about times in my life that I had previously kept buried. I have written about my depression, my weight and eating issues, battling my demons and my teenage years. I also love to talk about my five children and my parenting ideas; my husband who has been my rock through thick and thin and my extended family. I love a good debate and usually have an opinion on everything! So there is lots of material for a month of posts!
Why don't you join in? The Facebook page has prompts and motivational ideas in case you get writer's block and you will find great support from other bloggers. It is also a chance to discover some new blogs for yourself as other bloggers will be posting links to their NaBloPoMo posts!
So with this challenge set...I will power through November one blog post at a time!
