Secret confession: to be perfectly honest, I thought the appropriate hash was NaNoBloMo, but after the first time I said it aloud, I could see how it was up for a revision. Whoops.
I’m not usually predisposed to these various self-competitions, because what is the point, really? Heck, I wander around doing whatever I feel like most of the time because my logic is “Oh, everyone is doing Thanksgiving things? I’m going to do something else.” I prefer to think of myself as a lone
wolf cat. One of my friends, however, badgered me into a private wager with a group of fellow friends.
How it works: Post every day for the rest of the month. Cost: $50. If I win, I get my money back. If I fail, my $50 (and the $50 from any others who fail) is divided between the winners.
Given that I’m a huge nerd who spends hours researching or preparing most of my posts (a reason why I only post 2-3x a week, Quantity < Quality), I thought this competition was stacked against me and accused my friend (in a friendly manner, of course) of being after my money.
Game on, my fellow bloggers. Game on. I have a fierce predator competitor nature when I choose to exercise it.
So if you are wondering why my posts increased in frequency about 150% on my own blog, this is why. I’m even obligated to post on Saturdays and Sundays, which I think is cruel and unusual punishment, considering I also have blog commitments to other places. But I will endeavor to continue to provide you with quality me.
If you like that I’m posting more frequently, make sure to please tell me so and I will look at expanding my schedule. If you get sick of me, please go to 3 Chickens and a Boat and tell Julie this competition was a really bad idea 😉
My other competitors:
Jennifer at You Pinspire Me
Jennifer at Mom Dad and Cuppa Kids
Cyn at Creative Cynchronicity
Christine at Whine and Cheese
Holly at The Inspired Home
Be sure to visit the other sites from time to time and give them a cheer on!
And since I can’t seem to do a post without my inner dweeb coming out to play, did you know that the word “moar” is not just one of those cute cat meme misspellings? It’s supposed to be a demand for more like a roar.
And now you know.

Briiiing it oonnnn….
But really, well done for accepting. Blogging once a day isn’t for the weak, that’s for sure.
Good luck!! Can’t wait to read them! 🙂

Also, I have a tendency to spend 2+ hours on a post before it goes up, so I need to learn how to be more efficient with my time, apparently, or my house will be a complete disaster by the end of November!
You have no idea how much I love the fact that you turned this into a competition.
