Starting NaBloPoMo – 2023

Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 23280 – 1165

Here’s the haps:

Without telling a whole lot about specific situations, sometimes adult children need help. Adding another family to your mix can be a challenge to your time. And if you have let blogging become a pastime rather than your central focus, time takes on different priorities.

But, over the last couple of years, when things like the Blogging A – Z Challenge, Bloguary, and NaBloPoMo come around, I feel challenged and every time one of these “challenges” comes up I wonder if I feel up to doing a post a day for a month. I haven’t really had time lately for blogging in the first place but yet, the allure of being consistent beckons. It rankles because I know I went for over a year making a post-a-day and I feel I have to rise up against myself. I can’t say what the quality of these posts will be but instead of doing National Novel Writing Month which is out of the question this year, (I have decided that I could probably do it and that I really don’t need to join any “official” website to get it done but this is just not the time) as 1,667 words a day (50,000 words divided by 30 days) is too ambitious at this point in time.

You will probably see a lot of memes and recycled posts this month but I will be giving it a go even though I’m starting a day behind.


  1. Yay, I always look forward to HerbPosts. As long as they are not about cooking your family. But if anyone could cook a family well, it would be a guy named Herb.

I like comments and try to respond to them all if I can:
