It’s approaching that time again

On this side of the world, as I type this, there are another 19 days before November takes its place in our lives. November, the month when writers from all over the world go a little, shall we say, (creative) crazy?

For many years now, November has played host to the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). However, not all of us writers have “publish a book” in our wish list. Some of us are more of the blogging variety and being just as passionate about writing, there bloomed this idea of bloggers taking part in this crazy shenanigans. And so it began…the National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo).

Now, let me rewind to a few years back and tell you a story.

Once upon a time, in the land of WordPress blogs, there was this amazingly awesome, lively and beautiful dinosaur named Rara. She had a way with words that filled your heart and she had a heart full of love for not only words, but for people too!

Some moons ago, quite a few to beΒ  exact,

On a whim or maybe not,

Rara’s thought bubble popped a thought,

Let’s gather the troop of dinosaur lovers

(Of the Rara kind)

Let’s band together and sing a merry song!

(I don’t really think they did, but let’s just go along with it shall we?)

A song of the love for words,

A song of the love of blogs,

A song of the love of being wonky,

Let’s blog a post






Let’s call it


Because we love peppers,

and peppers are cute,

yet spicy..

(I think that was the reason, I’m not really quite sure)

So, off they went a merry band of NanoPoblano-ers

To get more slightly crazy people

Join in the madness of November!

Anyhoos, what I have been trying to do in my rambly sort of way is to let you ALL know – yes, each and every one of you beautiful, courageous, mad, creative, bloggy peoples out there, that it’s going to start.

  1. I created a new blog (private at the moment) this week, a year after deleting my others, but wasn’t sure why I even felt compelled to or what to do with it now.

    So, this is a potential “maybe”. I’ll provide the info if I decide to take the plunge but so glad to see this tradition carrying on!

  2. I am a Pepper from last year and this year I shall remain a very “Cherry Pepper Reader” of this wonderful roster of bloggers. We are deep in house fixing up in preparation to sell our house. As such I won’t have the time needed to participate as a blogger. Look forward to yours! Di

        1. NaPoWriMo is in April? I thought all the writing challenges accept the A-Z challenge were all in November… Oops. I was also planning on doing NaPoWriMo during NanoPoblano this year, but I didn’t realize that I had missed when it’s actually supposed to be done. Oh well, at least now I’m going into it knowing I’m a bit late… I never was one to follow the rules anyway! LOL


Awesomeness is in the sharing of thoughts :)
