Another Month in the books

I've done it. I've posted every day in March.

I did the same thing in February, January, December and November.

I have officially been keeping track since I joined NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month.) I thought that it was going to be a way to be able to keep up with people that posted something every day. There is this giant blogroll of people to ask to be linked in to participate.

I like to go through a lot of the blogs on NaBloPoMo each month and am shocked to see how many don't post every day. I just went through about 10 blogs tonight and a few of them haven't posted since the middle of the month.

So, it isn't a place to find LOTS of people who are serious about posting each day, but it is a great incentive for me. I want to blog every day. Even last week when I felt like I couldn't even see straight, let alone blog anything, I became happy and engaged when I sat down to write. NaBloPoMo has been wonderful for me and I am pleased as punch to be a part of it.

I'm a bit concerned about May though. My goal at the beginning of the year was to blog one thing each day of 2009. We are going to Ireland and the Isle of Man and I have decided I'm not taking my computer. I expect that I will write something each day, but it won't be a blog post unless we happen to stumble upon an internet cafe at an appropriate time in our travels. The rules of NaBloPoMo state that if you don't have access to a computer, physically handwriting the post counts, but I'm not sure if I can count that. So anyway, I'll see what I can do. I don't want to incur weird fees on my Blackberry, so I'll have to look into that closer, as that might be a way to blog from overseas.

I just wanted to toot my own horn. Toot Toot!

This is something I made from Wordle.net - I took a page of my blog and pasted it into the create section and then clicked random until I liked it. I think it's funny that DAY is such a huge part of the graphic. I guess posting each day is important to me - Look - it's right there in the middle!

Each day is important and I wish you all a great one.

Hmmmm - - - how about pre-posting for the days of your trip? Is there a rule against that? I imagine you will find computer cafes here and there along the way too.

Pre posting isn't allowed because the whole idea behind the challenge is to physically sit down and blog each day.

So I may write out posts that will go out for those days while I'm gone, so that I have something being posted, but also I will write out a blog post each day and then post them when I get home and keep my challenge alive by writing each day.
