This month, as I have done the past two years, I vowed to participate in NaBloPoMo, National Blog Posting Month. This year, I actively (more or less) write not only this blog, but also two columns for the Examiner: “National African American Genealogy” and “Baltimore Genealogy & History.” Three venues, 30 days = 90 articles.
So, how I am holding up?
Not nearly as well as I had hoped by now.
Through 15 November, I have posted the following number of articles in these three columns:
- Planting the Seeds: 13 articles (not including this one)
- National African American Genealogy Examiner: 7 articles
- Baltimore Genealogy & History Examiner: 4 articles
Fifteen days in, I should have written and published 45 articles, but I am only at 24!
I have only missed a day in this blog, but have not been quite as active over at the Examiner.
The funny thing is, I scheduled out most of the month in both columns. I just have not written the articles. Of course, I still have 15 days to catch back up. So be prepared for some extra articles over the next two weeks.
Is this cheating? Maybe, but since I do not have to answer to anyone but myself and my readers, I think it will be acceptable.
