Unfortunately NaNo hasn't brought back the wordcount API, which is what makes the NaNoWriMon go. I'm exploring a couple of options for this year.

First, there's an unofficial, undocumented API that could theoretically work tead. Theoretically! It might end up not working at all, and even if it does, NaNo wouldn't necessarily be pleased with me for using it for this sort of thing. This could mean NaNo proper could end up shutting down the NaNoWriMon midseason.

Second, I could do something entirely self-hosted. This would have the advantage of being available at any time of the year, and you'd easily be able to customize your wordcount goal if you didn't want to go for 50k. The downside is it would be much less conenient: you couldn't update your wordcount on the NaNo site and have it reflected in the widget automatically, the way it's worked in the past; you'd have to update twice, once on each site. You'd also have to create an account on this site in order to create a NaNoWrimon instead of being able to do everything without logging in.

There'll be an announcement on this site closer to NaNo time once I've figured out what's going to be feasible. Won't be for another couple weeks, though!
