Lately, I’ve been paying a bit more attention to posts online, especially those that offer tools for struggling bloggers like me! One of my friend’s posted a link to Blogher.com NaBloPoMo post on Friday. Her headline caught my eye: Today is the first day of NaBloPoMo, “National Blog Posting Month. Bloggers commit to posting once a day every day for the month.” I also noticed one of my favorite bloggers, Karen Walrond’s post about National Photo Posting Month (naphopomo). I made a mental note to check both of these.
I was supposed to check on this earlier tonight but failed miserably when I fell asleep with the baby (this happens almost every night). The plan is to put him to sleep and then get stuff done– but man he is way too comfy for my own good which makes it very difficult to stay awake. Plus, watching him fall asleep is one of those things I look forward to every day. It relaxes me so much and I just love to watch him toss and turn until he finds his comfy spot. Of course, his mama needs to be nearby in order to do this!!
Today I got up (after taking a nice 2 hour nap!) and told myself to check Karen’s post and blogher.com and I’m so happy I did!! The Challenge is simple, blog once a day every day for the month of November. I know I’m more than a few days late but it’s better late than never! I want it try it because I think it’s a great exercise to get my creative juices flowing again and to develop discipline. Learn more below and maybe you too can join me!
My personal goal, one post a day for the next 30 days! I will stick to what I already do every day- take photos! This will not only improve my photo skills but also help me click the “publish” button more often. I have to thank Sandra Fernandez for the blogher.com post and Karen for inspiring to do more with my photos!
The first has to be a photo of my handsome little mister- my 9 month old son Gael. I took this yesterday morning. One of my favorite things about Gael is that he always wakes up in a great mood. I love staying in a bed watching him smile trying to find ways to make his Mama play. This is him enjoying morning playtime under the blanket with Mama. A bit blurry but this captures the moment!
This photograph was taken as part of #NaPhoPoMo (National Photo Posting Month) — a shot a day for the month of November.
