National Blog Posting Month. You might think it’s only one month out of the year. Turns out it’s every month.
I read about it at Tech Savvy Educator. I originally thought it was a one month thing – help you commit to blogging daily for a month to establish a rhythm. Turns out it repeats every month, with an optional theme, and you’re still expected to blog daily.
NaBloPoMo is also a social networking tool of sorts. By signing up, you get a blog there… seems kind of strange for a community of bloggers.
Anyhow, I’ve found a somewhat useful purpose for it. At one of the Tech blogs I read (Chris Hope’s LAMP Blog), the author does a weekly and monthly round-up of all the posts that he writes and some statistics about his site. Seems like a good way to reflect on what’s working, what isn’t, and what you may not notice is going wrong.
I’m not sure if that type of thing would appeal to the average reader, so for now I’m writing those weekly/monthly posts over at my NaBloPoMo blog. If you’re interested in some random thoughts and reflections on my posts for the week, head over there. Otherwise, there’s not much you’ll find interesting.
NaBloPomo itself may be of interest though. Check it out.
