If you're reading this post, that mean I've officially posted all 30 days in November and I've completed NaBloPoMo. I'm awfully impressed with myself, considering I wasn't planning on entering since I didn't think I could do it. But then November 1, I figured "why not." And here we are!
It actually wound up being not as hard as I had expected. The main thing was that I learned early on that I need to plan what I'm posting early on. Hopefully that planning sticks around for a while because it makes things quite a bit easier. (As it is I have the rest of this week's posts planned out in my head.)
There was at least one post that probably wouldn't have gotten posted if I wasn't involved in NaBloPoMo, i.e. this post from Thanksgiving. But I knew I needed to post something that day, and I wasn't sure I'd have a chance later on, so that quick note went up.
While part of me did enjoy posting everyday this month, I can tell you I won't go crazy and try to complete some 365 day of posting challenge. I do think the biggest thing I learned was how hopeful it can be when you know exactly what you want to write about before you start. And while there will probably be a day or two without a post in the next month, I do still plan on posting regularly (say 5 or 6 times a week). And next year I might be crazy enough to try to complete NaBloPoMo for the second straight year!
Anyone else there try to make NaBloPoMo? Is so, did you make your goal and what did you learn from the attempt? If not, do you think its something that you'd ever want to try?
