National Blog Posting Month sure is a lot of work.
But I found out last November with the little group that calls itself Nano Poblano, it also can be a lot of fun.
I went from plain old Mark to Captain Poblano during the process of meeting and greeting new friends and keeping up correspondence with old pals in a different light during the experience. Opportunity knocks again.
Speaking of BloggyVille pals, I’ll take a cue from Sheena Not a Punk Rocker, who last year sent out a pre-emptive post asking returnees from 2013 what hat they’d like to wear for the next version of Nano Poblano.
It should make everybody’s month go more smoothly. Please take the time to answer these three polls, even if you’ve decided not to participate this year.
I’ve already got good news to share. Rara has told me she’s back and ready to bring her undeniable spirit and shine to the group. In many ways, it’s her baby. Click here, and you’ll see the post in which she named Nano Poblano in October 2013.
OK, if you’ve made it this far and still don’t know what NaBloPoMo is all about, here’s your primer.
Come November, WordPress will crank up activity and registration through its home hive, The Daily Post. WP staffers usually alert all a few days ahead of time via Hot Off the Press.
You don’t have to sign up there, or at BlogHer, or anywhere else to be part of Nano Poblano. But you can be part of any group you wish. Everybody picks their own best path to blogging fun, fulfillment and success. That’s what I found to be one of Nano Poblano’s best traits. Oh, yes. That and meeting plenty of interesting bloggers.
Please feel free to share and reblog to get the word out about Nano Poblano 2015.
And leave comments below with any questions or suggestions.
