Calling All Breastfeeding and Mommy Bloggers: Join Me for NaBloPoMo 2007

It is time to start gearing up for National Blog Posting Month: NaBloPoMo! For NaBloPoMo, bloggers around the blogosphere commit to the challenge of posting at least one blog post per day for the month of November. I had a lot of fun with it last November. This time around NaBloPoMo allows participants to create their own networking groups, and I have set up one for Breastfeeding and Mothering bloggers to join! Please join the group if you are a breastfeeding mother and blogger who is up to the challenge of writing a post a day for the month of November! You certainly do not have to write about breastfeeding — the point is for breastfeeding mothers to discover the blogs of other like-minded mothers. Want to play along?

1. Sign up for NaBloPoMo
2. Become a member of Breastfeeding and Mothering
3. Get ready to write a post a day for the month of November (Tip: it helps to learn how to publish a few posts in advance! No cheating by backdating posts!)
4. Blog away for the month of November for the fun of it, for a chance to win prizes, and for the extra exposure it brings your blog!

Planning to join? Post a comment here to let me know!

    Thanks Angela for the heads up. I’ll have to pass up the challenge this time. One post a day is not a goal that is good for my family right now. I will keep it in mind and try to at least stop by and see what others are writing. Have fun!

    Stacie and Colleen – Yay! I’m so glad you both will be participating and I look forward to reading your posts! Now if I can just figure out how to have time both to write a post a day AND read everyone else’s posts, I’ll be all set ;)

    I did this last year and have to say that as a blogger, it really made me expand my horizons. Before deciding to do it, I really thought about different topics I wanted to write about and as such, I made a list. That certainly helped me get through the “dry days” when I was struggling for fodder.

    I also highly recommended carrying a small notebook around so that you can capture thoughts and ideas as you go throughout your day.

    I am also particularly sentimental about NaBloPoMo because I announced my pregnancy that month and won a prize because of it. Free stuff always makes me sing. hee!

    Excellent ideas Kelli! I carry a notebook with me too.

    I signed up. I have a blog that I don’t think anyone but my husband reads. LOL Hopefully this will help me expand my horizons. It would also be nice if I knew someone besides him was reading my hard thought out posts. :-)

    I’ve signed up and written a post. If I get stuck, I’m counting on the others who have signed up to provide inspiration. I’ll try to offer some of my own.

    Ok, count me in – it’s good timing as I am just setting up the breastfeeding with my third child, and everyone is tired of me talking about it (I think) – so a daily blog is probably a good outlet!

    Ok, I’m in too! It will be a challenge, but I think I can do it.

  • http://mamacitalujan.blogspot.com/ Mamacita

    Do I have to blog here or on my own site for it to count as the challenge?

  • http://www.breastfeeding123.com Angela White, J.D., breastfeeding counselor

    Hi Mamacita! You post at your own site, at least one post a day for all 30 days of November. I’ll do the same here and others will post on their own blogs. Glad to have you along!
