Let’s talk about … NaBloPoMo

I decided to join in the madness that is daily blog posting for NaBloPoMo and have gained over 100 followers on my blog because of it (hello there) but not a great deal of interaction.  And I do like interaction, so …

In December I will go back to blogging fairly regularly, probably once a week.  I don’t want to use up all my topics at once.  I have enjoyed the discipline of getting something out there day after day and will probably participate again next year – very likely with my professional blog, more work-related, which you can look through, should you wish to, at http://eresourceful.wordpress.com.

I’ve dropped out of my film forums over the past few months and haven’t really missed the Doctor Who-related banter which seems to have taken them over.  I don’t mind Dr Who but I am not a ‘fan’ and even on archive TV forums, all people ever seem to talk about is this one series and it gets B O R I N G.

So along with blogging daily here, playing Criminal Case and Candy Crush on Facebook, and adding stuff to Letterboxd, I’ve cut my internet time-wasting right down, although November has also marked the time when I have become a regular twit tweeter.

    Hey Louise,
    My thoughts exactly. I tried the November novel thingy a few years ago, got plenty of words down but it’s so very solitary. Last year I did Robert Lee Brewer’s Poem a Day Chapbook Challenge, lots of fun, really had a final product and enjoyed plenty of chatter in the comments all month. Check it out for next year.

      Thanks for this Toni. I decided that committing to blogging every day would be a start, but doing the November novel would be a bit beyond me – although you never know, I might try next year. I am/was a poet so the poem challenge might well be fun.
