November's NaBloPoMo: National Blog Posting Month
The time has finally arrived: it's November's NaBloPoMo, the birthday of this blogging project AND its first month being in its new space on BlogHer.com. We are so glad that you've joined us. If you're new to NaBlo, you can learn more about its history here. Now, let's get this blogging party started!
November is the only month that doesn't have a separate theme. Instead, the theme for November is blogging for blogging's sake. As we always do in November, there will be prizes for participants who are writing daily. We have prompts lined up from writers and bloggers. And we'll be posting writing advice to cheer you on (sort of like water tables at a marathon) throughout the month.
You can currently sign up for November's NaBloPoMo by adding your blog name and url to the form. The blogroll is open until 11 pm EST on the 5th, at which time it will close to new entries. There are no categories for November in order to make it easier to use the list to choose the prize winners. Therefore, we'll just need your blog, blog url, and email address to use in case you win a prize. If you plan to use BlogHer.com for your daily posting, please put your member profile address as your blog url.
Of course, we'll also be syndicating great posts that we find from NaBloPoMo-ers and point more eyes -- as well as a paycheck -- to your post. And we'll be featuring posts that run on BlogHer, so make sure your signature is up-to-date.
About those prizes ... We will have a daily prize draw for people on the blogroll.

These prizes are just a thank you for participating in this big blogging celebration; for writing for writing's sake and doing it as a community.
So what are you waiting for? Sign up and start blogging!
[Editor's note: For legal reasons, entry in the sweepstakes is limited to residents of the United States and most of Canada. But no matter where you live, you can (and should) add yourself to the blogroll and participate in the glorious madness that is NaBloPoMo by blogging daily on your own blog and/or on BlogHer.com in November. You do not need to be a resident of the U.S. or Canada to have your post showcased on BlogHer.com or selected for syndication. So go forth and blog!]
