NaBloPoMo challenge where bloggers across the world are challenging themselves to blog every day during the month of November. This is my third go at it. The first year I did blog every day; the second year I almost made it but life got in the way. This time I'm determined to once again blog every day.
Will each blog post be profound? Probably not. But that's OK by me because for me, NaBloPoMo is about a personal recommitment to myself and my writing. For me, writing is my "me time"; the time when I can reflect on both the macro and micro worlds around me. It is a time that is important for me as a wife, mother and individual. The time may be short and many times rushed but when I blog its all about me. My thoughts and my opinions. When I'm writing I'm not cleaning up or cooking for someone else; I'm not driving from point A to point B and I'm not worrying about taking care of someone else. Rather, I'm taking care of myself by focusing on myself for a brief moment or two. And while I try really hard to do this on a daily basis year around, in November I make a concerted effort to make this happen.
So amongst the rush and chaos of a daily life that moves on fast forward from here until the end of the year, I'm taking a few minutes each day to concentrate on my writing. What I produce may be silly, serious or inane. It may be filled with words, pictures or a bit of both. But something will appear on this page every day for the next 30 days because that is my promise to myself.
Thank you NaBloPoMo.
