Part of me has missed not taking part in this years NaNoWriMo, but also part of me has wondered how the hell I found time to do it at all last year. I don’t seem to have had much time to write in November, but then I always feel like I don’t have time to write – and then I take into account the amount of time spent watching youtube videos, surfing aimlessly on Google and on Facebook and Twitter, the amount of time sat in front of the idiot box watching repeats of QI or last weeks Russell Howards Good News or reading blogs rather than writing blogs, and I realise I have plenty of time to write I just do other things and procrastinate instead.
So instead of NaNoWrimo I’ve had a go at NaBloPoMo and I set myself the simple task of trying to write at least 8,000 words, taking 500 words as an average post that would be 16 posts over the entire month and therefore would easily be my best posting month ever. But word counts and targets aside all I needed to do was at least 14 posts to make it the best month of posting ever which would be a small success, and I managed to reach that target last night with two football posts that I’m sure baffle and bore many of my followers but are things that I really do get passionate about. I try to keep this place a mix of various things but I always end up coming back to football and I think I always will. (Additional to this blog I’ve also contributed a single post to the Dugout too which I will also be including in my NaBloPoMo stats below.)
Well now I’ve written this post too and incorporated it into the statistics and have managed to work out that in the month of November I have published 16 posts online with a total word count of 8,283 words.
The most posts in a single month ever, result! I dunno if it’s the biggest word count for a single month, but regardless, it’s a decent amount of words to just knock out here and there.
I think NaBloPoMo 2012 has been a personal success.
