Taking a noncommittal, one-week-at-a-time approach to NaBloPoMo–I honestly can’t remember if I officially signed up to participate–got me through four weeks of daily blogging, so I’m not all that worried about seeing it through the last two days of November. I think what made it work was seeing it as an opportunity to mix up my content, try a few new things, and give some old things a new lease on life.
- Nonfiction November provided the prompt for one post each week (and a book review I haven’t finished writing yet).
- I didn’t write as much as I’d have liked, but I did more photoblogging, and was pleasantly surprised to find that making lists could be a fun and creative endeavor.
- I revived my long-dormant link roundup, and I think I may even keep it around past the end of November.
- I did not get much reading or reviewing done this month. This was partly the effect of Part 2 of The Great Book Blogger Paradox
but a busy month of projects at work and new shows on TV were also factors. And in a year of family health crises, we had another this month, and there will be long-term, ongoing changes in response to this one. A meeting today to sort out my dad’s home-health aftercare following last week’s hospital stay may not leave a lot of time for reading or writing on this last day of Thanksgiving weekend…but we’re thankful he’s home and that there’s a plan (and hopeful he won’t spend a third consecutive Sunday in an ER!).
And that’s almost a wrap on November 2015! I hope it’s given you much to be thankful for.
