NaBloPoMo oblige

I don't really have the time to post to this blog today, nor to La France Profonde tomorrow. But I will: NaBloPoMo oblige.

As I mentioned over on La France Profonde, I signed up for this blogging extravaganza this month.

For those who don't know about it, NaBloPoMo is a type of blogging "event" to encourage bloggers to post every day for a month. As their site says:

Post every day for a month. That's all you have to do.

I got onto NaBloPoMo last November when some of my blogging buddies were doing it. (Oh, that peer pressure...) And at the time, I was under the impression that November was the one and only National Blog Posting Month.

I remember thinking "November -- what a terrible time to undertake such a project." The days are getting longer, winter energy lack is setting in, and in my case, my work schedule is getting heavier and heavier.

When I went to the site, though, I noticed that you can actually participate any month you want.

What the heck. It was November 1st, and I signed up.

Bear with me.

And with Blogger being so smart and all, why can't they figure out that I'm actually posting this on THURSDAY THE 13th at 6:30-ish AM and not on WEDNESDAY (Pacific Standard Time.)

I got up at 5:45 to make sure to have time to post, so this is counting for my Thursday post, no matter what the date says!

I swore to myself, when the semester began, that I would post only three days a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (people do not seem to be reading blogs on weekends anyway.) But, hey, I do get thoughts, and come across interesting stuff on other days too, so I started posting here and there on my supposedly "off" days. I thought for sure that I would qualify for NaBloPoMo this month (I did not sign up or anything, though), because I thought that I had a post for every single day since November 1, but that is not the case... Oh, well!

That is cheating, but then again I usually prepare my blog posts in advance so how could I complain...

spaced, I thought that once a draft was written it was forever locked into the first date you wrote it. I'll have to check out how to program posts. I've never really looked into it.

NaBloPoMo just makes me feel guilty.

Mimi, it's actually been kind of fun. I wouldn't want to post daily all the time though -- I think I've learned that.
