In these heady days of web 2.0 no great effort should go un-blogged. So, if you’re a blogger AND competing in NaNoWriMo, let’s get the blogging on!
How’s it work?
I call the idea NaNoBlogMo. Here’s the gist:
We sign up X number of bloggers who are doing the NaNoWriMo – each person hosts 1 article in the month of November. You write about your approach to NaNoWriMo and your efforts. You link to the person posting the day before you did and the day after. The other 29 bloggers comment, tweet, and otherwise support each others efforts that day.
50,000 words isn’t enough? You want me to write even more?
Well, that’s the good thing about this challenge. You’d only have to write one post in Nov! That and commenting each day for a sentence or two would be the only commitment.
So this is a blog carnival / comment / tweet up scam?
No, not necessarily. And I certainly hope not.
I’ve never done NaNoWriMo before but talking to people who have both finished and NOT completed the project, it seems that fortune favors those with a support network. Sadly, not everyone has such a viable support network. Additionally, chances are that few people in your personal circle will sign up for such an undertaking so the chances of you receving true empathy may be unlikely.
Those comments and blog interlinking, rather than being a hinderance, are the key to creating a make-shift community. They’re the glue that keeps it all together. The process of commenting/tweeting/whathaveyou would make the difficult more do-able. Or at least I think it would.
Maybe we can even get one of those shiny button graphics made, too!
What do you say?
If you’re up for it, leave a comment below. Be sure to include your blog and your day. I’ll start things off on Monday November 1st, 2010. Who’s next?
