NaBloPoMo "Letters" Badges

NaBloPoMo's theme for April is "Letters."
Look! I made badges! Want one? Grab it!

I know what some of you are thinking... You're thinking "What's the difference between some of these? They look exactly the same!" The ones on the right side have a thin border. The ones the left do not. (And the very first one is a tiny bit lighter than the two next to it.) For some of these I couldn't decide which looked better, so I gave up trying to figure it out. YOU pick! :)















You're not required to link back to here if you use one of my badges, but if you do use one, please leave a comment and say hi! :)

* Need help adding a badge to your Blogger sidebar?


EDIT: If you're looking for a smaller badge like this:



I got mine at Growing Happiness.

i'm so impressed! i don't know how to "make" these "badge" dealies. but they're very pretty :-)

Photoshop! :)

One of the good things about NaBloPoMo is that when you make it clear to people that you're going to post every single day no matter what, you get into the habit of "posting no matter what."

In my case, it forced me to be less critical about what I posted and to lighten up on my self restrictions a bit. Though I'd never want to post something completely awful, that was helpful because I very often write drafts and then decide not to post them. And nobody was expecting sheer brilliance every single time because everybody knew that *something* was going to go up every day (not just when the spirit moved me!) and that what went up might be as simple as a line that said "Yeah... I got nothing." ;)

ooh, I am about to add one of these and start tinkering with what to post for a month of letters.

Thanks!

hi! cool badges! i am going to use the blue one on my site, if you don't mind :) thank you!

Kendra said...

I wanted to make a blog post about what I'm doing (from the Photographer's point of view) but can't find the things you quoted by Eden...could I use yours? Or maybe gimme a link so I can quote her directly? I've been going nuts looking for it, lol.

Melissa said...

Hi Sarah Louise and Lia! Thanks for stopping by!

Kendra: It was in an email that Eden sent out to previous NaBloPoMo members. I *think* to anyone who has an account at NaBloPoMo.ning.com but maybe it's some kind of newsletter option that needs to be selected? -Your welcome to grab the quotes from my post. They're from two different emails she sent (One announcing the year round thing, and the other re: April's theme.)

I've already suggested to her that she post this information somewhere on the NaBloPoMo site but I'm not sure if/when she will.

These badges are so nice! I like the ones over at the NaBloPoMo site, but wish they were more colorful. I'll use one of these. Thanks!
