November Challenge #1: Three Times A Blogging Lady

November is a brilliant time for a challenge – there is still one sixth of the year remaining so it feels like there is still time to make something of it, and if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere a challenge can distract you from the soul-crushing darkness outside.

I have a fitness challenge that I’ll post about next time but I also wanted a writing challenge to get some focus happening. I pondered a third NaNoWriMo but can’t face that 50,000 word slog again just yet. I thought of NaNoBloPoMo, where you blog every day for the month but I think that would be overkill for both me and any poor readers out there.

So in the spirit of moderation and baby steps I’ve decided to go for three posts a week. To butcher the Lionel Richie classic – once, twice, three times a blogging lady!

Just like NaNoWriMo, I’ve got a logo and everything. Except it’s crap!

Once, twice, three times a blogging lady!

The first post of the week Shakespeare at 35 is allย aboutย stray hairs, priorities, biological clocks and blog crushes.

Hope you have an ace weekend!

  1. Hooray! More writing from you is always good news for us. It’s day 2 of NaNoWriMo and I’ve STILL NOT MADE UP MY MIND whether to do it or not. Yesterday was still hosting motherly visit. Today, um… blogging in lieu of deciding. We’ll see. Anyhow, I’m delighted we’ll be hearing from you more. =) baby steps are GOOD.

    • ooh you should do it! i can nag you, kindly of course ๐Ÿ˜› it’s a really great feeling when you get to the end, promise!

  2. This is a very good idea! I think I should have a November challenge too. Only wondering what this could be… So I want to say Happy Birthday to you, Shauna!!! Better late than not ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you had a lovely day.. xx Sandy

  3. I signed up for NaNoBloPloMo (did I get that right?), but the schedule looked freaking intense. I requires daily blogs on complicated topics. I was exhausted just looking at the list. I think it would be ok if blogging was your job and you were running out of ideas.

  4. I’m looking forward to reading more posts. I’ve always enjoyed lurking around and I used to read you all the time and then life sidetracked me. I checked back in a couple of weeks ago and read your post about the fitbit and a week later had one of my own. I love it! They should pay you a commission ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. That is the coolest logo evah!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Looking forward to reading more witty posts from you!

  7. Looking forward to three posts a week! I found if I stuck to 1/week, blogging was sustainable. Any more and it was too stressful what with holding down a real job and all!
