NaBloPoMo: What I Have To Show For It

Hello, Good Morning, Joe Readers!

Today is the last day of NaBloPoMo.  It’s finally over, and although I say finally in a relieved manner, I have to tell you that I’ve learned quite a few things this month.

For one, if I really really wanted to, I could actually write a post every day.  Originally, I wanted to participate in NaBloPoMo to see if I could actually do it because a lot of days when I first started Good Morning, Joe I would tell myself “Oh, I don’t have time for this today” even though I desperately wanted to write.  I wanted to kick that habit and not procrastinate because I was feeling lazy.  I hate that even though I know we all have our moments of laziness.

In the process, however, what I learned is that I actually don’t want to write a post a day.  Although the idea did strike me as a great idea at first, I’ve found that giving a bit of time between posts is best for me.  The pressure of writing a post a day is a little stressful, I gotta tell ya, and I sincerely prefer to write on my own time.  Although, a swift kick in the butt is good motivation, I wouldn’t want to compromise my writing.  Keeping it up for another month would have led to less interesting posts and I may have become bitter about writing rather than become more and more inspired.

Something great that came out of it was more views than October and September, and many more followers.  I loved the comments from random people and the little interactions as well.  Also, I think I got a few good posts in there as well.  A lot of them I worked hard on (especially the ones with many pictures).

If you’re interested in checking out some of the posts (if you haven’t already), here’s a list of the posts for the whole month of November.

  1. I think I’m in the process of converting to two or three posts a week. It gives me more time to catch up with other bloggers and gives others more time to read my stuff.
