NaBloPoMo: What Does It Mean?

National Blog Posting Month (or NaBloPoMo, in short) was started as an adaptation of the yearly event - National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo), in which the participants write a complete novel within the month of November.

This novel writing project was started to encourage people to write. More specifically, it was especially meant for those 'perfectionists' who usually end up not doing a thing if they can't do it perfect!

The NaNoWriMo project encouraged writers to simply write whatever came to their mind, without caring about how good/bad their writing was, or whether anyone liked it or not.

NaBloPoMo then happened to give the writers a freedom to write about anything and not just a novel, i.e. even shorter daily blog posts. All participants of NaBloPoMo are required to write 30 posts in 30 days, or, in other words, one post daily, for a whole month.

Initially, the NaBloPoMo was also started as a November project, just like the NaNoWriMo, but then it started happening every month of the year, instead of just November. The NaNoWriMo still takes place in November every year though.

You can read more about this project and also check out my NaBloPoMo profile at their official website.

Update: NaBloPoMo was taken over by the BlogHer community eventually, and their separate website doesn't exist any more. So I have removed the link to my user profile there. Also, I have renamed the daily-blogging series here to KBL-T30 (Kaddu Blogging League: Thirty-Thirty).
