That's how I feel about joining NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month). Earlier in the week, I mentioned that I've been noticing a lot of time-based challenges (e.g. Art Every Day Month), and felt called to do one. None of them felt quite right, until I stumbled upon NaBloPoMo. During the month of November, participants (including me!) will post once a day on their blog.
Why I want to do it:
- After 7 + years, Have Fun, Do Good is feeling a little stagnant. It's time to grow it, or let it go. I'm hoping this blogging challenge will help me figure out the next step in its evolution.
- According to the September 1999 New York Times article, Route to Creativity: Following Bliss or Dots? creativity may actually be enhanced by limits, "the real source of productive creativity may lie in art's supposed bugaboos: rules, structure, even the occasional editor or two."
- I love writing, and blogging in particular!
- I won't have anything to say.
- I'll miss days, or stop altogether.
- I'll lose you as a reader. I've never been a daily blogger, so some of you might not like the increased frequency. I also don't know what the heck I'm going to write about for 30 days, so some of the posts might cover things that aren't the usual Have Fun, Do Good topics. If you decide to unsubscribe, I just want to say thank you so much for reading as long as you did (:
