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.

Nov 2nd at 1:13 am
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.

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/

its hard blogging everyday for me but i will try 5 days a week!! cant wait.
Nov 2nd at 5:43 am
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.

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.
Nov 2nd at 7:23 am
Who decided to do this the same month as NaNoWriMo? x_x
Nov 2nd at 8:11 am
this is my first time. here’s a feeble attempt.

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.
Nov 2nd at 10:20 am
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.

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….

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…
