All or Nothing
Several of my Instagram friends participate in the #fmsphotoaday photo prompts, and I thought I would rejoin the fun of it along with them. After skipping a few months, I came back to do October's prompts. Here are my photos for the month:
I know. The pictures are too small to see anything. These are more a collection for my memory than anything else. And this post really isn't about a daily photo prompt challenge; it's really about my next daily endeavor.
On this first day of November, I see the hashtag #NaBloPoMo on several different social media sites. After a few clicks, I see that it is a BlogHer challenge to write a blog post everyday in the month of November. (Not to be confused with #NaNoWriMo, which is writing an entire fictional novel in the month of November, all 50,000 words of it--something I can neither commit to or have the ability to do now).
I thought about #NaBloPoMo all day.
I just finished #fmsphotoaday for the month of October, and was relieved that it was over, because my poor old phone is on its last breath. If I take more than 2 photos, it freezes and restarts. It's like trying to freeze boiling water. I seriously don't have time to factory reset it for a third time!
Back to #NaBloPoMo. I am an all-or-nothing kind of person. If I want to do a challenge, I will do the whole thing even if it kills me. Seeing that this particular blog has been inactive for an entire month, I thought: what better way to wake it up than with another month-long challenge?
The NaBloPoMo posts this month will not be anything like my Letters of Muse posts--in length and content. I'm putting something different on the table. It will certainly be a challenge for me, and I'm sure I'll lose sleep over it, but I'm sure gonna give it a good shot.
So I begin November's first post with a hope that I'll see this through. So, here we go...
