Posted by infinitygoods on October 22, 2007

Here’s what I found this morning when I fired up my computer and looked at my blog.

Thank you, thank you, dear reader! It means a lot to this new blogger to receive a thumbs up, and also to have so many readers, so quickly. And such good people you all are too.

For all of you interested in writing, blogging and reading, be sure to also read my follow-up post on NaNoWriMo, NaBloPoMo and NaNoReMo. It’s today’s earlier post, so scroll down or click on the calendar to the left for Oct. 22, 2007.

And for all of you who have no idea what all this alphabet soup is all about (that’s me too just a few days ago!! LOL!!) you can read how this phenomenon all started on my Oct. 19, 2007 post.

NaNoWriMo Too Challenging? Try NaBloPoMo or NaNoReMo

Posted by infinitygoods on October 22, 2007

If Friday’s post intrigued you, but the National Novel Writing Month‘s 50, 000 words in 30 days challenge was just a bit too much of a challenge, you might consider these two.

The National Blog Posting Month challenge from Eden Marriott Kennedy is to “post everyday for the Month of November. That’s all you have to do,” she says.

Inspired by Chris Baty’s NaNoWriMo, Kennedy came up with NaBloPoMo for 30 blogging days in November. Her website provides groups and forums a blogger might find interesting even if not joining her challenge. If unsure what to write about on your blog, just check out the Writing Prompts Group.

But if you’d rather read blogs than write them, there’s NaNoReMo or National Novel Reading Month, also set for November.

Can you read a book in one month? Beware, Matthew Baldwin the founder of NaNoReMo at defectiveyeti.com did not meet his own whale of a challenge last year when he picked Moby Dick, nor did his blog readers.

This year 1,270 of his readers voted on Catch-22, a much easier goal to reach.
