I wasn't even thinking about doing it this year, mostly because 2012 has completely blindsided me and I still haven't quite grasped the fact that NOVEMBER IS THREE DAYS AWAY. But I am also kind of wary about it because I don't want to get burned out on blogging (again).
So here's what I've decided. I am going to participate in NaBloPoMo this year, but I'm not going to let it stress me out. And the way I plan on avoiding stress is this: if I don't have anything to say, I'll just post a picture. Ain't no rule in the NaBloPoMo handbook that says every post has to have words!
I'm also going to try to use the month of November to focus more on what fills me with joy. One way I plan on doing that is by finishing up my Scotland recaps. It's been almost two months since we got back, and I need to get the rest of those memories recorded now before I lose it all!
I just came up with THE best slogan for my joy theme: "This is my JAM!" AKA: Joy All Month!
(If you are shaking your head and feeling embarrassed for me right now, you clearly don't know me. Newsflash: I AM A WEIRDO!)
We'll see where my JAM takes me, but I'm looking forward to a little challenge to help me keep the ball rolling on this new blog through the crazy holiday season!
If anyone else feels like joining NaBloPoMo, go here to sign up!
And if you want to focus your month of blogging on joy, too, feel free to join me! I'd love to know you're doing it so I can check out your joyful posts. Here's a little badge I made just for the occasion (and don't even act like it isn't cool that "JAM" kinda fits in with my whole grocery-store imagery for "Aisle Hi-Five" here, mmkay):
