NaBloPoMo Challenge In Review

It’s over!! If you listen closely you will hear the cheers of many, many bloggers who, like me, partook in the National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) Challenge this month. Given that I basically didn’t blog at all over the summer and fall due to my crazy life this was a bit of a wake up call. Despite being less busy AND not being sick this year for it, I struggled real hard. But I made it so I just wanted to take a moment and acknowledge that and chat about the lessons learned this year.

100 Movie Challenge

100 Movie Challenge

Last year I was inspired by Rachel of Helpless Whilst Drying who did a 100 Movie Challenge in 2016. I loved this idea and thought it would be something fun to do with my husband and lightly incorporate him into the blog. 100 movies sounded totally do-able, that’s basically 2 per week with a little bit of wiggle room. However, as you will see, we barely made it half way to our goal in 2017. I think this mostly has to do with how many television/Netflix series we watched (hello Stranger Things, Iron Fist, the Defenders, & Clone Wars to name a few).

NaBloPoMo Challenge in Review

NaBloPoMo

Well, as today is the last day of National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) that also means that it is the last day of the challenge! For those who didn’t know, I participated in the challenge which meant posting 30 posts this month, one for every day of November. This is far above my usual 3-4 posts per week but I was up for the challenge and I succeeded! What made this challenge extra challenging was the fact that I’ve been sick since the first of the month! Luckily I had prepared some posts in advance of the month started, had a schedule planned and was still able to chip away at working on posts when I was feeling better. So today, I want to talk a bit more about this past month, what I learned and so on.

First off, I learned that to do a challenge like this, I had to have a plan in place before committing to it. I usually have a calendar of my planned posts, but typically I’m only planning each week at a time. This time, I planned the whole thing up front. But with that said, I remained flexible and did deviate my plan as I got other post ideas or had other inspirations. I’m going to continue this as I go back to my regular posting schedule and keep this flexible organization system going. Continue reading
