SHINE!--A NaBloPoMo Challenge

As you may know, November is National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo), in which many bloggers choose to take the challenge to post something--anything--on their blogs everyday for the entire month. This will be my third year to participate, and I always love the challenge. The only problem is that usually about halfway through the month, I begin to lose inspiration, and I can't think of anything to write about.

So this year, I thought I would give myself (and anyone else who'd like to join me) a little inspiration. Below, you will find something to inspire you for each day of NaBloPoMo--either a word, a phrase, a quote, or an image to use as a jumping off point for your blog post. I have always been intrigued by how we can all look at the same thing, but see something different. I thought this would be a fun way to come together as a community and allow our diversity of thought and expression spring from the same source of inspiration.

If you'd like to take part in the SHINE! Challenge, leave a comment below, so we can all know who is participating. Feel free to grab the badge on my sidebar and add it to yours.  You can also join the SHINE! Challenge group on the NaBloPoMo website, though it is not necessary in order to be part of this challenge.

And now...30 days of inspiration!  Happy blogging!

What a lovely idea! When I read that the challenge was to blog about 'whatever' I thought: Where's the inspiration??

Count me in!

I found your link on the NaBloPoMo site and I think I'll take this challenge within the challenge :)

I guess it depends on how I feel tomorrow, but I'm tentatively signing myself up for this!!

I'm doing this! Thank you for your inspiration. I needed a kick in the pants so that I would start writing again on a regular basis.
