Weekending: Windows
Unraveled Wednesday / 1

Ten on Tuesday: Blog, blog, blog (reprise)

Whaddya know? The timing couldn't be more perfect for an update to this 2yo post.

10 Tips/Ideas/Topics for Daily Blogging in November

aka National Blog Posting Month, or NaBloPoMo!

I can't not do it, having done it every year since 2009. I am not and have never been much of a planner when it comes to blogging... I almost always blog by the seat of my pants! That said, I usually keep some ideas in mind for NaBloPoMo*!


1.  Daylight Savings Time (also PSA)! Everyone has a thought about that! DST ends on November 5th this year.

2.  Photos! A good photo (or three) is sometimes all that's needed (though I am certainly guilty of posting a not-so-good photo at crunch time). "Saturday Sky" and NaBloPoMo are a match made in heaven.

3.  My Birthday! Lucky for me, my birthday is in November and that's always good for a post or two.

4.  Weekending! A few photos along with some words on a Monday morning to share weekend doings -- there are five only four Mondays this November.

5.  Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving -- planning, prep, cooking, decorating, celebrating -- can be good for a few (or more) posts.

6.  Holidays! Fast on the heels of Thanksgiving, there's planning, prep & decorating to do!

7.  Knitting! Sewing! Most of us are knitters, some sew; there may be a recent FO to share, some holiday projects or a WIP that's seeing some action.

8.  Ten on Tuesday! Even though the official ToT Linkup hosted for so long by Carole is now defunct, I may do this for a Tuesday or four in November.

9.  a) Unraveled Wednesday! b) Throwback or c) Three Things Thursday! d) Flashback Friday! e) Saturday Sky!

10.  Don't Stress. I try not to agonize over NaBloPoMo. Not every post is going to be stellar (guaranteed). I don't have to write a daily dissertation (I don't even have to write). And I try to be flexible (which is easy to do when the planning is loose to begin with) and open to whatever comes along!

So, are you ready? Are you in??

*I've been unable to find an "official" NaBloPoMo host or linkup this year, for whatever that's worth ~



That's a great list, Vicki. I'm IN . . . although it seems extra-daunting this year, since . . . well . . . I'll be on the road for a few days there. ;-) I always love reading all the NaBloPoMo posts. XO


Thanks for the tips! I usually start NaBloPoMo with enthusiasm, but it starts to wane about two weeks in when I wonder why I'm doing this and pressed for time. I've been trying to take photos of darn near everything and dredging up those drafts I haven't yet used. See you tomorrow (and for the next 30 days)!


These are GREAT tips! And, yes - I am IN! xo

I'll be reading your posts!


I started in 2010, greatly motivated by you so I can't imagine not participating this year either! Thanks for the good ideas for topics.


I think I'm going to try it this year...poor blog has been neglected since January!


NoBlo has been on my mind, but since I have paid little (NO) attention to my blog I wonder if it is something 1) I can do, 2) I, or anyone else, care about any more, and/or 3) Would it be fun? Saturday Sky is one of the reasons I've been thinking about jumping in. La de da....what to do?


Perfect timing and a wonderful reprise. I'm in AWE that this is your NINTH year! (and I'm all in with you on the seat of your pants thing - I wrote Kat that I hope I don't wear too big a hole in those pants :-)

This project is always a nice way to learn a bit more about you faithful bloggers and a treat I look forward to as winter looms. I'll be cheering for you to be inspired, and photos totally count.


Hmm, should I do NaNoBloMo? Why not? I tend to schedule my posts, so that will take some of the pressure off, plus I have come up with several ideas for posts in the past few days. Looking forward to reading yours!
