Mostly because someone I know in real life is doing NaNoWriMo and I thought it was really cool but sounds like A LOT of work and then I saw that another blogger I read posted about doing NaBloPoMo and I thought that sounded just as exciting but required less thinking on my part because if I were to write a novel I would have to think about important things like characters and plot and when I blog I don't have to do that because, well, there generally aren't characters or plots that I have to make up (much). Most importantly saying NaBloPoMo is way more fun than saying NaNoWriMo. Try it.
Doing this during the month of November is probably not the best decision as there are three birthdays, an anniversary and Thanksgiving. But I'm going to do it anyway. Because I never learn.
