If you’re looking for an opportunity to make your blog a part of something bigger, NaBloPoMo might be right for you. The official NaBloPoMo is in November, and WiseGeek has this to say about it:
National Blog Posting Month, frequently abbreviated as NaBloPoMo, is a month-long writing exercise that occurs each November. The first NaBloPoMo occurred in November of 2006 at the urging of American blogger M. Kennedy. Kennedy was inspired by National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), which also happens every November, and thought that there should be a blogging counterpart. NaBloPoMo has grown steadily in popularity thanks to the extensive information distribution network between bloggers. Hundreds of participants entered in the first NaBloPoMo, and every year the numbers seem to increase.
BlogHer is “a community and media company created in partnership with women in social media. Lisa Stone,Elisa Camahort Page and Jory Des Jardins founded BlogHer in 2005 in response to the question, ‘Where are all the women bloggers?’ Today, BlogHer is the largest community of women who blog: 55 million unique visitors per month (January 2013, Nielsen Site Census).”
Every month, they invite female bloggers to sign up and participate in writing themed posts for their blogs, featuring a NaBloPoMo badge on their blogs, and being featured in the blogroll of participating sites. They offer daily writing prompts to help those who need it structure their participation, but there is no obligation to use the prompts.
