Tuned into Twitter this morning to see a smattering of #NaBloPoMo tweets and realised with a jolt that not only is it the first day of November today, but the first day of Nation Blog Post Month.
I got that slightly shaky feeling that I get when I think I’m going to do something impetuous. In this case, getting stuck into NaBloPoMo in an attempt to get my blogging mojo back on mother.wife.me. Slightly crazy given that I only got half-way through another impetuously started NaBloPoMo back in the summer, at a time when I had about 33.3% less things to do with my days.
Still, the urge was there. I love a challenge and I must confess to a little self-loathing at the moment, that I’ve let slip the blogging that I so love doing. Even though it is in favour of getting Ma Puce, my website for helping parents help their kids learn French, off the ground. Plus a few mammoth ‘real-world’ tasks that I’m currently packing in alongside being a full-time mum to an almost three-year-old.
So there I was, teetering on the brink of diving into NaBloPoMo. I logged on to BlogHer and searched for the NaBloPoMo page. Up came a list of Na…blah..blah..blah links, among which was one from Actually Mummy entitled ‘Why I Will Not Do NaBloPoMo Again‘ One read of this post and I am cured of the urge to participate.
Thank you Helen, you have saved me from a fate worse than the equivalent of having to file a new tax return every day for a month. And more importantly, you’ve saved the readers of mother.wife.me from the resultant bilge.
Instead, I’m making a commitment to mother.wife.me that I will fill it with at least one decent, well-thought out post per week. Clearly this isn’t it, so I need to get my thinking cap on before the week is out…
