Discover Something about Yourself with March's NaBloPoMo

21 days ago

So what is the NaBloPoMo theme of the month?

SELF

Who are you? No, really, we want to know. That's why we read your blog. Isn't that a little crazy? That there are people out there who are fascinated with... YOU.

This month, we're bringing it back to the self. What makes you tick? What have you learned about yourself through blogging? Do you do better in a group or hanging out alone? Every person is unique, and we want to celebrate each and every one of you.

Of course, don't forget the visual element we brought into last month's NaBloPoMo in honour of PhOTY -- Photo of the Year. We want to make sure your blog is getting traffic from Pinterest and Instagram. So throw up those selfies, give us a view of your world, and show us the places that are important to you.

The theme and writing prompts, as always, are there as a guide if you want some structure to your month, though you can always sign up for NaBloPoMo and chart your own path.

If you've never joined NaBloPoMo, this is the time to do so. It starts March 1 and runs until March 31. Just make the commitment to (1) blog daily for the month (nothing more to it than that!) and (2) to support your fellow NaBloPoMo'ers by reading a handful of the other blogs on the blogroll. Cheer them along and they'll cheer you on too. You can sign up for March's NaBloPoMo until March 5th. You can grab the official badge here and upload a link to the badges you make.

It's as simple as that: post daily on your own blog. That's it. You can get fancy and cross-post your blog posts onto the NaBloPoMo site. If you need daily inspiration, bookmark the NaBloPoMo prompts page for March, which already has all the prompts for the month posted so you can plan ahead.

NaBloPoMo is what you make of it. At its core, all you need to do is post daily on your blog. The point of NaBloPoMo is not to be restricted by the theme, but instead to either take it or leave it. If you'll do better blogging every day based on what's happening in your world, throw aside the daily prompts.

Sign up for March's NaBloPoMo and tell us about YOU!
