NaBloPoMo – Halfway point

November 15, 2012

Well, November is officially halfway over, which means I only have to go, “Gah I still have to blog and it’s already 10:30pm!” 15 more times this month. This is my fourth straight year of doing NaBloPoMo and perhaps it is because I started it after a six-month blogging leave of absence, but it has been harder for me to feel like I am actually writing anything of substance. Unlike previous years I haven’t put together a schedule, lined up any guest posts or done any real prep work. So in many ways it should be no surprise that most of my posts have been a scramble to just write something and let myself get to bed.

But maybe in the end that is really the point, just to get myself accustomed to opening up a blank draft box and typing little words, one after the other. And maybe instead of causing a giant drop-off in my writing (like has happened in every previous year), this method will actually get me back to a more reasonable blogging schedule.

Either way, thanks for following along and if you haven’t commented yet, please do! It would be great to know who all makes up the 50 unique visitors this site has had this month.


  1. Okay, you finally guilted me into commenting! I was actually thinking in late October that you hadn’t posted in awhile. Then I remembered that you usually do the posting every day thing in November, and lo-and-behold, you did it! It’s good to hear how your life is going! 🙂

    • Ah gotta love the guilt trip 🙂 But I am glad it worked, cause comments really do make the whole blogging thing worth it. Anyways it sounds like I might get to see you over Christmas? If so that would be awesome!

  2. I’m glad I am able to catch up with you again. I enjoy being able to “hear” from all of the cousins who blog out there. Unfortunately I’m not one of you, just a very interested reader! Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks for commenting Beth and for reading! I too love keeping up with all the various blogging cousins. I hope all is well for you and your family on the east coast. Have a happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I’m reading the blog! You live so far away and we only see each other about once a year, so I love hearing about the life of You 🙂
