Join Us for July's NaBloPoMo and Kid Around

BlogHer Original Post

So what is the NaBloPoMo theme of the month?


We're not just talking about those small human beings who may or may not be running around your house right now.  We're talking about the best jokes ever told, the best pranks you've pulled, and all the other times you've been kidding around. Do you take things seriously, or do you like to joke your way through life?

Of course, we will also return to looking at life through your childhood eyes (especially what you thought about adults like yourself back then).  So join us as we span the spectrum of time -- from when you were a kid to the best moments of kidding around today.

The theme and writing prompts, as always, are there as a guide if you want some structure to your month, though you can always sign up for NaBloPoMo and chart your own path.

If you've never joined NaBloPoMo, this is the time to do so. It starts July 1st and runs until July 31st. Just make the commitment to (1) blog daily for the month (nothing more to it than that!) and (2) to support your fellow NaBloPoMo'ers by reading a handful of the other blogs on the blogroll. Cheer them along and they'll cheer you on too. You can sign up for July's NaBloPoMo until July 5th. You can grab the official badge here and upload a link to the badges you make.

It's as simple as that: post daily on your own blog. That's it. You can get fancy and cross-post your blog posts onto the NaBloPoMo site. If you need daily inspiration, bookmark the NaBloPoMo prompts page for July, which already has all the prompts for the month posted so you can plan ahead.

NaBloPoMo is what you make of it. At its core, all you need to do is post daily on your blog. The point of NaBloPoMo is not to be restricted by the theme, but instead to either take it or leave it. If you'll do better blogging every day based on what's happening in your world, throw aside the daily prompts.

So start thinking about kidding around this week.
