May-o MOFO

You know how November is the month for writing?  NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) both happen in November.

I blogged daily in November over the past few years, as it’s a great way to  purge the metaphorical lactic acid from the “writing muscles” that were straining to make the late October deadlines at the NSF.

But, what about the rest of the year?

May is midway between two Novembers, plus it’s the month in which those of us who are academics on a semester schedule finish teaching and breathe a great sigh of relief for a few days (or a few seconds) before the catch-up-on-work-and-conference-travel season.  So May seems like a great time to do another month of daily posting, to treat myself  after the end of semester! Sort of like having cake for a half-birthday!

Thus, I introduce you to:


As I thought what would alliterate with May, MOFO popped into my head and, once you have a MOFO in your head, it’s never coming out.
A jump from there to May-o MOFO was inevitable. Now the task was to came up with a slogan for the abbreviation, and that’s how we have May — the Month Of Futzing Online.

I invite you to blog daily in May. Feel free to use the badge.

Merry MOFO!
