Get Ready for a Scandalous April NaBloPoMo

Get Ready for a Scandalous April NaBloPoMo

So what is the NaBloPoMo theme of the month?

SCANDAL

You may have heard that a certain Kerry Washington is going to be at the BlogHer conference this year, and in honour of her keynote, we've made the April theme scandalous. After all, who doesn't like to bite into a big, juicy transgression. I mean, as the audience, that is. It's not quite as titillating to be at the center of the incident.

What is our obsession with scandals? Why do we love to see people fall off their pedestal? Why do we work so hard to cover up our foibles instead of admitting to them and moving on? And yes, it's time to spill, what's the most scandalous thing you've ever done?

Don't worry; we know that everything lives forever on the Internet, so we've given you a lot of space to talk about other people's scandals rather than dishing on your own.

The theme and writing prompts, as always, are there as a guide if you want some structure to your month, though you can always sign up for NaBloPoMo and chart your own path.


April's NaBloPoMo

If you've never joined NaBloPoMo, this is the time to do so. It starts April 1 and runs until April 30. Just make the commitment to (1) blog daily for the month (nothing more to it than that!) and (2) to support your fellow NaBloPoMo'ers by reading a handful of the other blogs on the blogroll. Cheer them along and they'll cheer you on too. You can sign up for April's NaBloPoMo until April 5th. You can grab the official badge here and upload a link to the badges you make.

It's as simple as that: post daily on your own blog. That's it. You can get fancy and cross-post your blog posts onto the NaBloPoMo site. If you need daily inspiration, bookmark the NaBloPoMo prompts page for April, which already has all the prompts for the month posted so you can plan ahead.

NaBloPoMo is what you make of it. At its core, all you need to do is post daily on your blog. The point of NaBloPoMo is not to be restricted by the theme, but instead to either take it or leave it. If you'll do better blogging every day based on what's happening in your world, throw aside the daily prompts.

Sign up for April's NaBloPoMo and get ready for something scandalous.
