blogging: nanopoblano

November is just around the corner, and while many of our writer friends will be participating in NaNoWriMo (congrats, y’all, and good luck!) — some of us will be doing what we do.

Running our yearly blog-marathon for National Blog Posting Month.

We call it NanoPoblano … And Team Tiny Peppers… or Cheer Peppers. Whatever you call us, the important things are that we try together, and we would love if you joined us!

Normally National Blog Posting Month means we write a post a day, for the whole month– but this year, we’re shaking things up! We’re trying to make this a comprehensive blog challenge, complete with a ready-made community.

We’re challenging our team to 10 days of posts, 10 days of reading/commenting, and 10 days of sharing posts through any other platform.

Obviously, you’re still welcome to tackle this challenge however you’d like. Team Tiny Peppers is known for our wild abandon. But we’d love to see some organized blog revival this year. Invite your friends who need a boost!

I’ll be there in November with my blog-shoes on, blogging the bloggy nights away.

We would love to have you join the team this year.
We would love to have you cheering us on.


The Frequently Asked

What does it mean to be on the team?

You sign up. I add you to a list. You commit to linking back to the list in your posts, or to sharing the full list. You get a snappy blog badge. You can join our Facebook community, if you want. You tag your posts #NanoPoblano2019 so we can find you in the reader easily on those 10 readership days.

You try.

There’s no requirements about what you post or when you post. There’s no policing. Just make your own schedule and do the thing.

How do I sign up? has a sign-up.

Since you’re here now, you can just tell me in the comments or hit me up on any of the platforms where you normally reach me.

I’d need the name you want to be called, your blog address, and your email address. (Your email address will not be published anywhere, but I will send you non-priority messages periodically.)

What if I’m not sure if I can do this?

No one is. Are you sure you can try? If so, you’re eligible and we believe in you.

What do I write about? How do I do the social media part? What do I say in the comments?

Our website will help with all of that. We always have prompts. This year, we’ll have more expansive tips too.

What else?

I’m sorry if the formatting for this post is wacky. I’m typing on my phone because reading is still a struggle for me, and the voice program on it is better than the one on my laptop.

Also, you’re an important part of this community. And you are loved!

  1. I’ll be cheering all the Peppers from the sidelines as I’m in the NYC Midnight 250-word microfiction contest (first heat is still going … making me nutty to have to wait a month to see if I make it to the second heat!) and just signed up for a course, plus work. Sigh! I also have a story I’m working on … a few words at a time as it comes to me …

  2. I’d like to give this a go. Perhaps November will turn out to be a little calmer than the rest of 2019 has been. 🙂 Thanks for being a constant source of inspiration to so many of us, Ra.

    Love and light,

  3. I’m working and writing and querying, too
    And my sister is coming to visit, yahoo!
    I’m taking a class and I’m studying Spanish
    But visions of Nano I just cannot banish.
    I’ll be busy as hell from now through December
    So my posts may be short (if I even remember),
    but I’ll try my best in the month of November!

  4. I need to get back on the blogwagon, after a long hiatus. I hope this will get me going. My name is momFawn, my blog is Trigger’s Horse, I still use my ancient email address of Please join me to the list and notify me however you do that.

    Thank you!

  5. Oh, I so like this format! It’s so much nicer than the whole cram all the writingpostingcommentingsharing into every single day of the month. It’s not from lack of desire, just time.

    I do have a question though – is the sharing posts through other media, is that sharing our own posts to other social media, or sharing other’s posts on our own blog like re-blogging, or both?

    I am really looking forward to this. 🙂

    Love you! xoxox *hugs*

    1. Glad to have you on the team again! 😀 And yep, it’s both. I think sometimes we write in our little bubbles and forget that we still have to tell people we wrote something in order for them to know it’s there. Plus, sharing our friend’s posts in whatever manner is comfy for us– well, that’s good teamwork!

    1. That sounds good! It doesn’t have to be Twitter. we’re open to any kind of sharing– even just sending a link to a friend. And, you could share the work of others instead. Excited to have you on the team!

    1. There’s no prompts. We just have lists available if you prefer that. Tweeting links and IG mentions works. Even texting a link to your friend. We’re just trying to remind folks that sharing your posts and other posts is how people find our blogs to read. 🙂
