The NaNoWriMo blog is the official blog of National Novel Writing Month. It features regular posts by the NaNoWriMo staff and interns on a variety of topics ranging from events to features on staff members and interesting Wrimos around the world to whatever's on the staff members' minds regarding writing and reading.

The current NaNoWriMo blog is hosted on Tumblr with Disqus comments and a custom domain. This setup allows Wrimos on Tumblr to like and reblog posts of interest so their followers can see those posts. The past NaNoWriMo blog and comments were powered by Drupal, as the NaNoWriMo website was running on Drupal at the time.

Regular features

The NaNo blog has several semi-regular features.

  • Bloggy Award: The Bloggy Award is a staff-created award for particularly exceptional posts. The current holder of the Bloggy Award can pass it on to a staff member who writes a post of note.
  • Sarah and Chris Debate Things: A feature that hasn't shown up in awhile. Sarah Mackey and Chris Angotti discuss a topic that they disagree on and have a lot of fun with it.
  • Week in Review: Started in summer 2012, the week in review is a Friday or Saturday post that summarizes interesting things that have happened on the forums, Twitter, Facebook, and reminds participants of current events such as validating their novels and a pep talk arriving in their inbox.

  • The covers and posters from 30 Covers, 30 Days and 30 Posters, 30 Days
