November is NaBloPoMo

And I am going to participate again…because I’m crazy.

For those of you who aren’t blog geeks, November is National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo). There is a website dedicated to it: http://www.nablopomo.com/.

From their FAQ:

-1. What is National Blog Posting Month?

Essentially, it’s a group of people who have committed to updating their blogs once a day for an entire month.

0. But why is it called National Blog Posting Month if it happens every month?

The whole thing started off as a goof based on National Novel Writing Month, the challenge of which is to try to write an entire novel during the month November. Not everyone can commit to an endeavor of such magnitude, though, and so National Blog Posting Month was born. However, after doing a November NaBlo for a couple of years in a row it seemed that a lot of people had found their momentum and wanted to keep going into December and beyond. So now NaBloPoMo is something you can drop into any month of the year, though November is still the biggest month, and is the only month when members donate prizes that are then given out randomly to other members who posted every day in November. “

Back when I had time, I participated in the official month, and on unofficial months too. But the whole thesis writing/editing/defending business has really gotten in the way of the blog, and in the way of pretty much everything else I find entertaining.

Well, it is November…or will be in a few days….And despite the evil thesis defense and submission lurking in my very near future, I am still going to participate.

I decide I may as well start this daily posting now…so I don’t accidentally miss November 1st. 🙂

Oh, and I decided every blog post needs a picture…even if it isn’t relevant. So, here you are:
