The last day of NaBloPoMo

IMG_2316-1Well, we’ve made it: the very last day of NaBloPoMo.  Anyone who has managed to complete it, give yourselves a massive pat on the back and feel quite rightly pleased with yourself!

It’s certainly not been an easy challenge for me but here’s a few things I’ve learnt along the way:

  1. Writing every day is hard.  Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.  However, it is also *liberating/wonderful/expressive/cathartic… (*insert adjective of your choice here).
  2. Taking part in NaBloPoMo means you not only write more, you read more.  I’ve followed and commented on lots of different blogs since the start of November and ‘met’ some amazing bloggers along the way.
  3. The best posts are often the spontaneous ones you write when you’re stuck for something to say, so instead write from the heart or write with tongue firmly in cheek.
  4. I love (and need) a challenge.  Ok, I already knew that but NaBloPo confirmed it.
  5. All the best laid plans can easily go out of the window and it’s not always a bad thing if they do (see item 3).
  6. You don’t have to be sat at a computer to blog.  For example, I’ve blogged perfectly successfully from a delayed train and a pub this month, using my iPhone.
  7. Photographs help make your posts more visual but they aren’t always necessary.  Sometimes words are enough.
  8. People out there in ‘blog land’ are helpful, kind and supportive.  Even some of my less-than-perfect posts have received numerous likes (thank you folks!).
  9. Writing about the things you love or care about will always resonate with someone.
  10. Even on the days when writing has felt like a chore, ultimately I’ve enjoyed every minute.

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed taking part in NaBloPo too.
