Hello, NaBloPoMo 2019!

Here is my obligatory first post for NaBloPoMo 2019, where I tell you once again that I’m going to try really hard to do all thirty days, but am only committing to weekdays and in 2018 I bailed before even accomplishing that. I may also throw some posts up on weekends, too, but let me not get ahead of myself here.

I’ve been doing this a few years with various blogs of mine, and it has always been a struggle. Last year (I think) I decided to only commit to weekdays. I did bail last year, but I feel like committing to weekdays is still a good goal. I do have more to say this year, and I will probably also may re-issue some of my posts from past blogs (especially The ReInVintaged Life) in order to get posts I don’t want gone forever on this blog.

Can I do it? Will I do it? Who knows? But I’d like to try. For the first time in several years, I find my thoughts and words coming more freely. They may not always be funny, entertaining, informational, or significant, but they will always be authentic.

This post from ashadornfest.com pretty much sums up why I’m hoping more people will start blogging again, and she made this really cool graphic to promote posts:

Are YOU participating in NaBloPoMo this year?

If you are, grab the graphic from Asha’s site, leave your link, read and comment on the other participants’s posts, and spread your own on social media with hashtag #NaBloPoMo2019! Also, I am thinking about compiling a list of participants – if you want your blog shared here and on the Storms and Stardust FB Page, leave your link and a short description of your blog or your niche, or whatever you’d want readers to know about it, and I will share!

Happy NaBloPoMo-ing! #NaBloPoMo2019

      I am trying my best! I did just commit to weekdays, so that will take some of the pressure off. Another participant is only committing to eight posts for the month. With this resurgence, it’s just whatever we can do. I do enjoy writing, so maybe it won’t be as big a failure as I (am trying NOT to) anticipate!

    Good luck. I hadn’t heard of this, so I won’t be participating. (Of course, I blog weekdays anyway, so it wouldn’t be hard for me.) I find what helps me post daily is not to write daily. I write my posts a week in advance. It helps, so I’m not flailing for something on the day. This may or may not help.

      I try to write all my posts on weekends when I am off, but I never get around to it. I get a Music Monday done, and that’s about it! But I am trying to do better.

  2. Kim,

    I’m not participating in this blogfest. This is one that never got me motivated. Maybe, it’s because I didn’t feel it was a good fit for me. Part of me would like to find inspiration to join daily challenge that spurred some creative writing. November is hard month to get into anything this and is the rest of the year, just too busy for me. Best of luck to you as you play along, my dear!

      Cathy, I think that’s why I kept falling off the wagon with it – November is a crazy month. It would be so much easier (for me, anyway) to tackle in July. But that may interfere with the majority of bloggers’ vacations or something. But you are right November is not good for this! However, with this revival, we are just making a commitment to a certain amount of posts and linking up. I’m committing to weekdays, and hoping I can stick to it!
