OK. Fine. I’m in.

I wasn’t going to.
I said I wouldn’t this year.
I’ve gone and done it again.*

I have been uninspired to blog lately so I figured participating in NaBloPoMo would give me reason to post. Surely something will spark a post every single day for the next 30. Oy. I had planned to skip this year because I don’t want to post something just to post something. I don’t want to put up crap just to stick to my commitment to post every friggin’ single day. I do hope I won’t be posting about daily earthquakes, since I felt a noticeable aftershock yesterday around 4 pm. Yeah, we can be done with the earth shaking now, mmmkay?

Maybe I’ll write about my time on the treadmill on a given day, because that is riveting to read about, I know. But if my toes can avoid an arthritis attack, I should be good for my first race in 2 years on Thanksgiving morning. I didn’t sign up and pay $35 for the charity aspect, or for the camaraderie of running in a pack, or for health reasons. No. It’s about eating pumpkin pie with no guilt.

Blog posts this month might include a lot of complaining about having to think of something to write every day. I don’t want to resort to describing what I ate for lunch, or what color my socks are. I won’t resort to posting my grocery list or recount what cute thing my cat did that day (unless it’s even cuter than this).

Yes, it’s going to be a long month, people.

    Yeah. I signed up, too. I’m still not sure why.

    Haha! Jenni got me that book for my Birthday this year. She most likely read my post about the tofu salad : )
    Everybody’s blogging about NaBloPoMo. Photo project?
    You’ll have some great stuff to contribute, I’m sure.
    I need to go check out what all the hubub is about.

  • Saj says:

    I debated, then decided I’m still too new at all of this to commit to a whole month of daily postings! Remind me next year…

    Looking forward to hearing about your days!

  • mcgee says:

    i’m looking forward to reading your 30 entries!

  • Sandi says:

    I decided to try to READ blogs every day rather than try to write one. In fact, I only heard about NaBloPoMo this morning so I’ve already lost!

  • Mandy Lou says:

    Not sure what could possibly be cuter than the kitten, but you should try!

  • Saj says:

    Upon further review, I’ve decided to give it a go. Don’t be surprised if you receive many more emails with questions about how to do this stuff!
