14 thoughts on “So, on the Last Day of NoBloPoMo

  1. I enjoyed it. I strive to post every day anyway, so this just forced me to do it. I don’t know if I really GOT anything out of it, but it was fun for me.

    A little increase in traffic and a few new commenters.


  2. I actually thought it was great. I heard a lot of complaints from people who weren’t doing it about clogged up readers, and I thought what a perfect excuse for me NOT to start reading blogs from a reader. I have my little linkee dinks, and that’s what I use. Anyway, back to the topic at hand. NaBloPoMo felt like a nice stretch of the brain muscles. Not that I came up with any fabulous new ideas or anything, but it was fun. I’m not sure if I’ll do it next year, it depends on if I think it will benefit me in the same way it did this year. My stats? Eh, not sure since I also rejoined Cre8buzz this month.


  3. My sitemeter stats went through the roof. I discovered bloggers that now feel like old friends. I became totally overwhelmed by all the READING I was doing just to keep up. Somewhere around day 20 my posts became long winded and repetitive. I came to HATE NaBloPoMo. Tomorrow I am promoting a day of bloggy silence, “Screen Saver Saturday”. All anyone visiting my site this weekend will see is a test pattern with or without the national anthem playing. Will I put myself through this again next year? You bet I will.


  4. I enjoyed it for the most part. I know a lot of my posts were probably lame, but I did at least have the pressure of needing to get something down to meet the day’s goal. Since it did inspire me to try to think more with my posts, and not just rehash the day, I think I would like to attempt an entry every day for the month of December as well. Except for maybe the week of Christmas.

    I am sure I will do it again next year.

    Anyway….I haven’t really noticed much difference in my site stats, but I haven’t checked my meter in forever.

    The one thing that I wanted to do was visit a different site in the randomizer every day, and I didn’t do that. Since I have the day off, maybe I will visit 30 today!


  5. I had fun doing it. I don’t think I really learned anything from it beyond the thoughts: Must Blog about something today! I started out doing a thing on potty training and only did 3 posts about that. oops!
    Next year I am going to do it and set myself up with goals I want to meet besides just doing a boring post everyday about nothing. My stats? I did have a few new viwers. In the middle of it I got bombarded with readers but not so many comments and now its dropping off the charts. I did find a few more blogs though and hope to keep on going!


  6. Honestly? I didn’t participate, but read a lot of people who did. I already read more than enough blogs and felt overwhelmed by all the posts I felt like I should be reading. Needless to say, the quality of some of the posts weren’t all that great either. So, overall I’m not a fan and am happy it’s over.


  7. Ok, I am making a list of everyone on here who said they are doing it again next year. I have a list!! You are warned.

    Coup d’e tat!

    Down with NaPoBlowhatever!


  8. I’m not sure if I got more traffic. It was hit or miss–one day 7, the next day 57. But I do know a lot of new readers came to my blog, and have added me to their readers and blogrolls, so I guess in that way it was a success. But I didn’t really enjoy it much, so I don’t think I’ll be doing it again. Just so glad it’s over!

    Now I can spend time with my family again. Imagine that!!


  9. Just stumbled upon your blog from Once Upon a lifetimes blogroll..so glad I found you. I’m really enjoying your blog.

    I’m glad that NaBloPoMo is over,..but i feel as if blogging camp has ended *sniff*…I’ll be trying to continue the daily posts 🙂


  10. I totally disliked NaBloPoMo. I wasn’t in it, but my reader went through the roof, and a lot of the posts were meh. Sorry, but I gots ta call ’em as I see ’em.
    I think I may take a break from blogging next November.
