NaBloPoMo is here! Need some inspiration?

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…

A new writing prompt goes up at The Daily Post every weekday at 11AM EST (we also tweet them out on the @freshly_pressed handle). If you need additional inspiration, head over to Plinky.

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.

Around WordPress.com…

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.

For more daily inspiration and support, follow the official NaBloPoMo Twitter account. If you’re in the UK, there’s also a NaBloPoMo Facebook page just for you.

Is there a resource you depend on to get through NaBloPoMo? Share!

    So much to blog about and so little time to blog. I try to blog as often as possible, but because am blogging about my community, my topics are limited. Good luck to all you who finds interesting topic to blog about and good luck with your contests.

    A worthy idea to get people blogging. But isn’t there a risk that posting every day just for the sake of doing it is going to bring about a reduction in quality? Discuss!
