There used to be a month long blogging challenge to post a blog post every day in November called NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month). It was the blogging version of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). There’s no longer a main site for it, but I used to find it useful for getting back into the habit of blogging regularly. This post is for day 1.
My plan is to attempt it for 2019, as I miss blogging but haven’t known what to blog about. To allow for the fact I’m ill (and sometimes sleeping 18+ hours a day) I’m gonna be lenient with the timings (so long as it’s that day somewhere in the world I’ll count it) and I’m going to try and write a couple of posts in advance (like this one). I’ve got a couple of topics I know I want to write about, and I’ll be looking for blog memes I can use for when my brain isn’t working great. Worst case scenario, I’ll be posting a picture of a penguin or a favourite YouTube video 😛
I never did finish off my end of year blog posts, but that’s okay. I can do them next time. I’m hoping that getting back into the routine of blogging will help me process my thoughts and also work as a kind of diary as I have a terrible memory and I can’t remember what I’ve done. I’ve used my blog several times so far this year to figure out when things happened or I did certain stuff.
A more detailed summary of what I’ve been up to and how I am will be in one of the month’s blog posts, but I can say that overall I’ve been about the same. Still mostly in bed, enjoying the times I can get out of it, and glad I’m nowhere near my worst. I’ll take it 🙂
