Blog365 - More Madness
You would think that after the death march that was National Blog Posting Month, I would have sworn off silly self-aggrandizing blog challenges. You’d be wrong. When I first got the bulk e-mail notice that a NaBloPoMo somebody was proposing going for a full year, I thought it was madness. It still is, but when I read the fine print, I found that the definition of a daily post is pretty elastic.
The biggest loophole is that it doesn’t have to be all one blog. Since I keep two and a half blogs already, that only comes to three posts a week each. I think I’m already hitting that. I just need to pace myself better.
My biggest hurdle will be vacations. I have at least one trip planned this year that will make daily posting challenges. I’m going to have to resort to pre-writing or post-dating a few entries to keep the bookkeeping straight, but trips tend to be great blog fodder, so the net effect will be a plus.
Here is my page there if you want "friend" me or toss me sheep or whatever silly WebSocial-2.0.A.(b) thing they do. I'd like to know I'm not the only sucker falling for this.
I post this on New Years Day where people traditionally make all sorts of silly rash promises to themselves. For a blogger, this Blog365 has got to fit right in there with eating better, exercising more, and spending wiser. All good ideas. We’ll just see how it goes.
