HoNoToGroABeMo – or – How Not To Grow A Beard Month

Posted by on November 7, 2013

So for the last few years I was only able to watch on the sidelines as my beardless brothers took the fight to breast cancer by growing their beards for breast cancer research. This year is different. This year, I am back in the normal office, and my face is back in the race!

HoNoToGroABeMo has been a tradition for the last six years, growing like… facial hair on a grown man. Ok, so my simile and metaphor abilities are hampered at the moment. It was started by Kris Johnson in a tradition similar to NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and then added to by others, and built upon by Bob Voegerl to build the site that now houses the event.

The past two years were won by my protege, Peter Dilillo. He is taking a much deserved hiatus this year, and so it is up to me to continue his streak.

I’ve been doing my blog posts in video form over on the site, and they can also be viewed on You Tube. So if you want to fill your head with Follicle Facts, want to watch me being somewhat silly, or just want to support our cause and donate to breast cancer research (which you should do anyway), head over to the following links:
