June is NaBloPoMo and BuNoWriMo

NaBloPoMo June 2013

In an effort to post more often, I thought I'd try participating in NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month).  It's like NaNo but for blogging.  The theme is "ROOTS"...genealogy.  It has daily (M-F) prompts that you can use if you choose to.  Since genealogy is actually one of my passions I really think I might be able to do this.

 It is also BuNoWriMo hosted by The Burrow.  The goal of course, to write 50,000 words in the month of June.  You can also read more here at their blog.  They also have a Facebook page.  If you are familiar with or have participated in NaNoWriMo in November, then you know what it's all about.  Same idea, different month.

Now I don't yet if I will attempt the novel one, even though I've been thinking about it.  I don't want to over commit myself and fail.  Especially since I have finally started arting again.  *happy dance*  I've been experimenting with oil pastels.  I'm still not sure if I like them enough to use them frequently.  Part of that could be because I have some really cheapy ones, the brand that everyone pretty much says to avoid LOL.  But I will use what I have for now.  And that was pretty much how I spent my Memorial Day weekend, at my easel making art.  And BOY!  DID IT FEEL GOOD!!!

So now with a little luck, you may have another post from me tomorrow :)


  1. Hi, Ellie ... here from NaBloPoMo! I think you should post some pictures of your artwork ... I'd love to see your muse at work! :) Very cool.


  2. Hi, my name is Sandy and I just signed up with BlogHer, and for the June "roots" theme! I think it will be a lot of fun! While I really don't know all too much about my families I quite frankly don't know...I will do my best! I went ahead and posted mine today to be mindful of time zones...looking forward to reading yours!

  3. I keep following Sandy it seems! I am newbie to Blogher as well and this is a leap for me. Blogging everyday, when I didn't blog at all last year. Something to be said for jumping right in! When I went to do the novel...YIKES!

    As far as the Roots theme. Genealogy is fascinating to me but way too obsessive, so I will be writing from a different aspect of my roots! I will be following and checking back!

    1. Sorry! Here is my blog link if you are interested.
