Nano Poblano Badges & Assorted Business

It’s almost that time of year again where a bunch of crazy people decide to post on their blogs every day in November. Unfortunately, my tenuous work situation will keep me from participating this year, but I might sign up anyway only to fail on day one.

While Ra (who created Nano Poblano) was away last year, I designed some badges:


I was kind of hoping that, now that she’s back, she’d take over that unenviable task, but no, she asked me to design this year’s badges as well.

Since I’ve been slacking on everything else blog related, I figured I better do the badges right away or I’d forget. So, I spent my lunch hour making these:

I recycled the little hand-drawn pepper from last year, but changed practically everything else. I couldn’t decide whether I liked the light or the dark one, so I’m leaving it up to you. Which one do you prefer and why? An essay of 500 words will be due tomorrow.

Last year, you may remember a silly idea I had called the Nano Poblano Blog Hop Story. I asked Peppers to add a sentence or two to a story I started. I hoped it might end up at somewhere around 1000 words, but it far exceeded my expectations. We managed to keep it going all month long and wrote a whopping 6500 words!

It was a lot of fun, but some people who got tagged didn’t want to participate and still others didn’t get a chance, so I thought maybe there should be some sort of sign up for those who want to participate in the blog hop story.

Eventually, there will be an official Nano Poblano sign up, but for now, if you’d like to participate in the Blog Hop Story, let me know and I’ll add you to a contributors list. That should make it easier to figure out who to pass the story to when you’re done writing your masterpiece.

Also, Mark has a poll for things you can do for Team Pepper. I’m recycling this diagram from last year to help you decide if you want to participate:

Go Team Tiny Pepper!
