It’s November 1st, and National Blog Posting Month–NaBloPoMo–is upon us. Time to put your thinking cap on, fire up the computer, chug some extra coffee, and get a-postin’! Bookmark these resources for days when you need a little something extra, and leave a link to your site in the comments so other NaBloPoMo participants on WordPress.com can find you.
On The Daily Post…
Weekly writing and photo challenges give you two more opportunities a week to be part of NaBloPoMo and deepen your participation in the WordPress.com community. Browse past challenges for even more ideas.
Take inspiration from fellow bloggers: you can start by taking a look at our Focus On posts, which highlight blogs and niches you may not be familiar with. Read something new, and see where it takes you.
Speaking of reading something new, Freshly Pressed is a great source of material. We pick posts we believe will stimulate interesting conversation. Take that comment you left on a Freshly Pressed pick and turn it into a post on your own site. With ten new blogs highlighted daily, there’s bound to be a topic that speaks to you.
If Freshly Pressed isn’t floating your boat, spend a few minutes exploring topics in the Reader. Search for some topics you’ve never looked through before–be creative!–or just check out other posts tagged NaBloPoMo.
Elsewhere On the Web…
NaBloPoMo’s home is over at BlogHer, where they’ve got tons of resources, from blogrolls of participants to more daily prompts; you can also grab a badge to showcase your participation.
Is there a resource you depend on to get through NaBloPoMo? Share!

My kitchen is exactly like the Jetsons’ and I just push buttons to create Thanksgiving Dinner for 17 people every year.
It’s so much fun, I forget to write. :)
I regret to say that I will not be blogging every day, as I have a lot of things to do, but good luck to those who decide they would like to try this challenge, and I hope you succeed.
I am in already . My first entry is : http://themotherofnine9.wordpress.com/2012/11/01/1713/
Sounds fun, except I’ll be too busy participating in NaNoWriMo!
You learn something new everyday, I’ll try to crank something out before the day is done.
Never heard ot it. I blog when I choose.
Thanks for the info! Don’t know if I’ll blog every day, but I’ll get some posts in …
We’ll be blogging daily at globalgrazers.wordpress.com and are really looking forward to being inspired by all of you!
I’ve giving it a try as well! I’m new to wordpress but I’ve blogged (not too often) on blogger. I’m gonna try blogging once a day on each blog.
We’re a husband and wife writing team who just launched our blog a few weeks ago. We’re excited to try this! You can find us at: http://edgeofstory.com/

I just started this whole blogging thing! Amd there’s a challenge for November? You can bet ill be doing it :)
I didn’t know about this, and I’ve been regretting not doing NaNoWriMo because that would take up too much time… So NaBloPoMo it is! I didn’t know this was a thing to do, but I’m glad it is.

Well who knew?
An entire month devoted to blogging.
As if bloggers needed MORE reasons to post their thoughts…
And just in case you have no useful thoughts, WordPress provided this post with tons of links and ideas.
If you are not a blogger, but have been thinking about it, November is the month to start.

NaBloPoMo is happening! Who’s jumping on board?
Never even heard of this before today. I’m in.
Having participated for the first time last year, I’m a definite fan. It made me look at blogging in different ways, and built up some of the ‘muscles’ that I need for writing and blogging. My first 2012 post is here: http://wuppenif.com/2012/11/01/on-the-trail-in-november/
I kind of feel like I’m cheating since I’m doing Project 365; this comes at a good time, though, as I am almost at the finish line. A great way to meet other bloggers too. http://angelinem.wordpress.com/2012/11/01/day-340-mermaid-and-fish/

Oh man – I just started NaNoWriMo! I did not know about this. Hmmm . . . I may have to think on this :-) I did post today, so you can say I already did Day 1!
its hard blogging everyday for me but i will try 5 days a week!! cant wait.
Amazing the list of things I learn when I look for learning. :-) I never heard of this until today. Of course, I’ve only been blogging since March.
Can I join even if my blog is hosted by blogger? I wrote a post yesterday, 01 November. Thank you.
I am a photographer who like the nature …
Find me at: http://hellboy2503.wordpress.com/
Great! This could be “it” for me.
I wrote a post yesterday about NaNoWriMo, why I wouldn’t join that challange – it would take up too much time and be too stressful.
These kinds of deadlines, however, are really good for the thinking and the creativity. We do it all the time in my workshops.
The biggest challange for me is not the writing itself – it’s to write in english. I started to do that just a short while ago.
My native language is swedish and I will most certainly do linguistic mistakes.
I hate to do linguistic mistakes.
So it will probably take twice the time to write a post but I think it will be worth the while.
AND I might learn to ignore the fact that I do linguistic mistakes now and then, and just keep on writing – at least when I write in english.
Who decided to do this the same month as NaNoWriMo? x_x
this is my first time. here’s a feeble attempt.
Wow! Great timing for me to have started a blog on Oct 31st. I’ll catch up :) Weeee
I can’t write a novel this month, but I can blog daily. I’m in at http://smkelly8.com
Computers have stolen my life. I have worked on them ever since they were available. Think the first one for me was by apple, don’t even remember what, and this was before Mac, before Windows software was ever invented. I worked on them from the mdos prompt, and mastered all kinds of games I made up. Never even thought that I could have helped develop software back in the day! But just saying, almost sick of my computer world. I have yet to find a blog that I could get really interested in to follow, not that some are not are really awesome. I would rather wander outside taking pictures than to work on my blog, so maybe one day, blog a day for me.
I would love to blog everyday but job, wife, pets, etc seem to have other plans for me. Good luck to everyone who does this.

Fine… but I haven’t enough time. Good luck to those of you who decide to try, I hope you succeed.
Good luck everyone! I’m not taking part, but I have huge respect for everyone who’s involved… plus I am always up for more coffee :)

Thanks for the information! Don’t know if I’ll blog every day, but I’ll get some posts in
great inspiration to blog more and so i will give it a try – being election time this seemed like an appropriate one to put out there – http://brettfish.wordpress.com/2012/11/02/to-vote-or-not-to-vote-a-definitive-guide-ish
Love this and will definitely be taking part. For today’s Daily Prompt, ‘write a letter to your 14 year old self,’ I just had to put a link to a post I wrote a while back, which is entitled ‘Letter to Me, Aged 14.’ As I have already done that one, I won’t be writing another, but I will be getting something down tomorrow for the ‘letter to self in 20 years’ prompt….
I have been blogging every day for a few weeks ow while away in New Zealand, will keep it up and use this tag. Thanks :) http://blog.ryding2health.co.uk
Brilliant, freshly pressed is always full of great inspiration and so are many of the fab bloggers inhabiting the wordpres blogosphere. I’m definitely in and will be attempting the impossible – a blog post every single day :-) Come along, have a coffee and say hello at womanontheedgeofreality.com – it is wordpress honest :-)
I anyhow blog everyday ranging from a post to quite a few and all of them are poems..they are the ones closest to my heart.. and are written then as I log in into wordpress depending on the mood and state of mind.Lets see what new can I do with this.. :-)
Thank you for this post! I received it through email, and it motivated me to post! Thank you! My website is http://thephotoalley.wordpress.com/
Looking forward to trying this…but mine will be only weekdays as I document my work as a victim advocate http://www.givethemstrength.wordpress.com
This sounds like fun. I know it’s day 2 but I’m going to give it a go on my http://www.simoncowan.net blog. :)

Ugh, if only that Reader would work properly. It doesn’t matter which browser or which version of a browser I use, it’s slow and it only brings up about six new posts at a time even though the note at the top says there’s many more.

NaNoWriMo doesn’t look challenging/crazy enough on it’s own, so I think I’ll do this too. I might need to invest in a vat for coffee…
Forget about the NaNoWriMo, My idea is RhymeyRhymo! I’ll write a verse until I’ve thirty, Full of truth, and never dirty! Why not reply in verse on my blog?

Looking forward to November and NaBloPoMo! I’m a new blogger — mostly blogging about travel and what my husband and I see in our town and out of town. Any comments are appreciated! http://ohtheplaceswesee.com
Sounds like a good idea, too bad I’ll be doing NaNoWriMo and probably won’t have time to post every day. Maybe not any day during Nov.
Thanks for the challenge! I’m game. Already started a postin’ at http://Nuveasantoscobb.wordpress.com

Just published my first post for the month of November. So, I try creating stories out of photographs. Sharing my blog here. http://sosodolly.wordpress.com/
I’m not sure if I can do a post every day but I will try to at least do several a week. We’ll see. Sometimes life happens, especially in November as we hit holiday season.

Let’s see how it goes!
