It's almost NaBloPoMo time again. For those of you who don't know what NaBloPoMo is, run away now while you are still blissfully ignorant! :) I'm kidding, really. *wink, wink...really...* NaBloPoMo is National Blog Posting Month. If you commit yourself to it you're supposed to blog every day for the entire month of November. I signed on last year thinking it was a good opportunity to force myself to be a better blogger. I wanted to write more, write more often, write better, wanted to force myself to take advantage more fully of the opportunity that is blogging. I thought it was a great intention. As it turned out, my whole world fell apart last November, and NaBloPoMo forced me to work through my pain, to put it in words and let it out, rather than internalizing everything like I always do. NaBloPoMo got me through that month and helped me keep my sanity! 30 days hath November, but last November I posted a whopping 51 times.
This year my goals are a lot more humble, and pretty close to the ones I started out with at the beginning of NaBloPoMo last year. I want to write every day - something, anything really, but I want to come back to my blog, get in the habit of writing again. I want to write about something other than tragedy or pain or loss. I want to write about what's in my heart, in my brain. I want to write about what interests me, what happens to me, whatever really, but I want to write. Every day. That's all.
