Isn't that acronym awfully close to NAMBLA

November, along with being National Beard Month (not a real holiday), is National Blog Posting Month or NaBloPoMo for short (not particularly short, also not a real holiday). I had no idea this existed until reading blogs of other bloggers who are participating. A participant is supposed to write a blog post everyday for the month of November. I don’t know what the point is. Is it a celebration of blogging? I guess technically it’s a challenge. I’m thinking about participating mostly because I like a good challenge. I want to see how long I can last. Here’s my dilemma though: I haven’t had a quality post in months. I think I’m out of ideas. Would it really benefit anyone for me to try and force something everyday? Inevitably it would be about 90% crap. Really how many Youtube clips and that’s what she said jokes can anyone stand? Screw I’ll give it a shot. Get ready for a barrage of 200 word posts and stories about what I ate for dinner last night. It’s going to be awesome.

It's a derivitive of NaNoWriMo where people try to write a novel in a month. I guess the rationale was that people want a writing challenge, but a whole novel in a month is too hard, but one blog entry a day is much more attainable.

Writing a novel in a month is crazy. Mine would suck. I mean, I could write 50,000 words in a month, but it would take a couple years to edit it into something that only kind of sucked.

Does this include weekends? You'll be done by Saturday. Otherwise, it's not that hard (TWSS). You can just post a link or make fun of a news story - something you used to do a lot, but don't as much any more.

you should just post the shakey-face pictures from homecoming for comments and maybe a little story about each person.

that could get you though a week.

last year I wrote 8 whole pages for NaNoWriMo until I realized that my novel had no plot or character development and that I was using the writing process as an excuse to drink whisky (since it worked for so many 20th century novelists and all)...
