Reflecting on NaBloPoMo


So today is the last day of NaBloPoMo. I hope that actually stands for National Blog Posting Month, otherwise I’ve sure been doing it wrong. While I did manage to post something every single day this month, I’m not sure I would do it again. It was great to have the discipline of coming up with an idea and writing something every day, but I felt like I couldn’t give most of my posts the time and thought I would have preferred. Some of them felt more like a wordy Facebook status than a blog post.

Maybe next time I try this, I’ll commit to a post every second day rather than every day. I did really enjoy making the writing a daily practice, but it might have worked better for me to journal daily instead of forcing out a post.

Thanks to everyone who read and liked and commented on my posts. I feel like posting every day was a bit of an abuse of the patience of my readers, so I am extra-appreciative of this month’s audience participation!

Did any of you do NaBloPoMo or one of the other versions of it? If so, what was the experience like for you?

      Well, I don’t know about “better” haha! I just wanted to try the experiment. I am single (yay!) and have no kids (yay!) so it’s easier for me than a lot of others. But my dogs and cats are certainly feeling neglected!

      Thanks for the marvelling! I am going to go back to my usually once or twice a week (or, you know, whenever). It was fun to try the daily posting but I also feel like now I can get back to my regularly scheduled life.
