October is NaBloWriMo month.

What the heck is that, you ask? Ah… National Blog Writing Month. Sponsored by… none other than the nablowrimo blog, of course.

Unlike NaNoWriMo, this month long event is limited to only 22 bloggers. (And Staight From Hel is one!). Those of us in the contest have to blog every single day of the month of October.

And what are we competing for? A tube of lip balm. Yes! I am going to win that lip balm. I need that lip balm. I actually have no idea what you have to do to win besides blog every day. Maybe the judges count comments. In case they do, leave me a comment! Every day! Several times a day! I want the lip balm.

Oh yeah, here is the entire list of NaBloWriMo Bloggers.

Repeat after me, Helen’s gonna win the lip balm.

  2. Well I'll certainly do what I can ta help ya get that there lip balm, girlfriend - it must mean a LOT to you! LOL. Hey how did you get ON that list? Looks like a good list of blogs to go visit and get to know about - thanks.

  3. You don't have to have votes or comments. It's just blogging every day. That's all.

    I know, because I'm the one running it.

    lj, the lip balm has cocoa butter, mango butter, beeswax, jojoba oil, castor oil, and essetial oil of vanilla. It's divine. How do I know? I make it myself. :)

  4. Okay, now I know I have to blog every day. I keep lip balm in my purse, on my bathroom counter, on my desk. My son says I'm addicted to lip balm.

  5. I did a whole month and am now on my second. I'm feeling proud of myself and a bit addicted to blogging now.

    Win the contest. I use lip balm constantly all day. I'm addicted to that too. Maybe I should have entered the contest.
