If you somehow missed the fact that it’s November 1 or this past weekend was Halloween, November is here. So what? There are plenty of things going on in November in case you need more than all the new comics, games, TV, movies, etc.
Movember: You’ve spent all of October thinking about breast cancer awareness, which is great but now you need something else. Enter Movember, a month of moustache growing to bring aware to men’s health concers. No, this is not just a silly gimmic, this actually does raise money and awareness. Head over to www.movember.com to find out more, register, and check out various moustache styles to choose from.
NaBloPoMo: Yes, I’ve blogged about it before but it is time once more for National Blog Posting Month. I could have sworn this was an annual thing that took place in November but it appears to have branched out to now have themes for each month, November being “there is no theme” month. If posting regularly is something you are interested in go register and you might win prizes.
NaNoWriMo: National November Writing Month, the predecessor to NaBloPoMo. Yes I’m promoting another reason to have people write this month. NaNoWriMo gives people a goal of writing a 50,000 word book over the course of the month. But check out their site as it is also a fundraiser for young writers, but be patient as they don’t seem to be handling load well after having a Lifehacker post on them.
Edit: I did not see this until the second day of the month, but Linux Journal is running a daily giveaway each day of the month in celebration of the 200th issue. No purchase is necessary so head over to http://www.linuxjournal.com/giveaway for your chance to enter for a variety of things you can win.
