2019 Goals Review

Wow, okay, so it’s somehow been almost a year since I wrote my 2019 goals. A lot has happened since I wrote this post on the 11th January and whilst my blog has not always been a priority, there are definite moments when it has been a success.

Blogging for NaNoWriMo

One goal that people always say they would like to do is “write a book one day”. This seems to be a fairly standard item on people’s bucket list and yet, not everyone actually puts in time and effort to writing that book. Perhaps they don’t know what to write about or just never got around to doing it. That’s where NaNoWriMo comes in – or “National Novel Writing Month”. Every November, thousands of writers get together to draft that novel they’ve always wanted to write. As Nanowrimo gets bigger, more and more writers have flocked to it. These days, there’s even a category of “Nano Rebels” that are writing anything but novels. That’s the section that I think can really be useful for bloggers. So today, I wanted to share why more bloggers should take up the challenge of blogging for Nanowrimo! 

In a way, this is kind of similar to Blogtober but also allows bloggers time to focus on drafting the posts only – rather than writing, editing, adding pictures and publishing posts every day. I see using Nanowrimo, perhaps combined with other challenges such as Blogmas, as a way of “getting a headstart” rather than a rush to complete everything.
