The last three days were either busy or I was too emotionally spent to blog. More of the latter than the former, if we’re being honest. Yesterday was Momcat’s birthday and the days leading up to it are very challenging for me. But I’m feeling better now, and ready to get back into the game.
So at close to the last minute I decided to do NaBloPoMo for November. I did it last year and it was a great motivator. Hard to keep up steam once the month’s over, at least for me, but maybe it will be different on this go-round. Who knows?
So stay tuned, be sure to follow me on Twitter (the link is just to the right of this post…down a little…a little more…there!), become a Facebook Fan, or just read the blog.
Whew, I made it. Thirty days of blog posts, all because of NaBloPoMo. True, there were days I didn’t post much in the way of original content. But I did post something and I believe that was the point.
There’s no guarantee I will be able to maintain daily posting. A few big things are in the works right now and my blogging time may be limited. This 30 day blogging challenge was good for me, though. It got me thinking about what to write and forced me to become more involved with my blog again, and that makes me happy.
To all of you who have been reading faithfully and commenting: thank you.
To all the lurkers who are reading but not commenting: thank you. But would it kill you to post a comment? Can’t you help boost a girl’s ego just a little?
To all the spammers: I know you think your flattery will get me to approve your comments, but you can’t spell and your comments make no sense. Thank the technology gods and WordPress app developers for a strong spam filter, otherwise I would be spending way too much time removing your ridiculousness.

Well, I’ve blogged every day this month, so I’d say I’m doing well with NaBloPoMo. But tonight I am tired and lazy. It’s raining out, my bed and comfy gray blanket are calling my name, and I don’t feel like making a huge effort to be particularly clever or creative.
Since I don’t want to feel guilty or wrong about writing such a lame post, instead I’ll post a few links to some good articles, videos and blog posts I read this week.
- Google and Gmail users, consider this your hot tip for the week: check your Google Dashboard every couple of months to see what’s on there.
- A few minutes ago I was standing in my closet, trying to figure out what I want to wear to Thanksgiving dinner this year. This article has some helpful suggestions for looking cute while noshing on cranberry sauce.
- According to this MSNBC news story, if you’re flying anywhere this holiday season, you may want to leave your prosthetics at home.
- And to wrap things up, something fun: a sweet little video clip from “Britain’s Got Talent” – an 80-year-old singer from Glasgow. Move over, Susan Boyle.
What news stories and blog posts caught your eye this week?
Wow, my Feedburner is showing only one reader. Of course it doesn’t help that I haven’t posted in a month.
Guess it’s a good thing I signed up for NaBloPoMo, which sounds obscene when you say it out loud. It’s short for National Blog Posting Month, and while you can sign up for any month in the year (NaNoWriMo is only in November), most folks sign up in November.
So let’s get this party started, shall we?
