I was romping around the internet playground after the holidays when I came across BlogHer's NaBloPoMo on January 2. I read the information and thought it would be an excellent opportunity to write more and possibly be read more. Past participants were raving about their experience so what did I have to lose?
Clearly I was high on holiday fumes because I joined instantly. Seriously, I did it without a moment of hesitation. Did I bother to look at my schedule and see what else was going on in my life? No, I most certainly didn't. Did I check out my drafts to see if I had any publish -worthy gems ready to go? No, I most certainly did not. Did I jot down a list to see if i even had thirty possible posts? That would be a BIG. FAT. HAIRY. NO.
And yet here I am ten days in and still swimming.
I won't lie, I am a little worried how I will make it work. My inlaw's will be here for a week, I have a girls weekend away (yeefreakinghaw!), multiple 5th birthday parties to plan, opening day for Brownie Cookie Sales is just around the corner. I have to keep the house immaculate and be ready for a showing at the drop of a hat. I have to feed the kids. I have to bathe them. I have to keep them alive and flourishing as a solo parent until further notice.
If anything, this experience will force me to become a bit more organized. I will have to plan and write ahead and schedule posts to be published. Wish me luck!
