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.

Hopefully he gets better soon!
Thank you–he’s coming along a bit day by day!
What a month you’ve had with your dad; it’s so hard to watch them get older and start to need our care. Hope you’re able to get everything lined up to keep him safe and get him healthy.
So true, and it really does help that we’re all in the same town. My mother-in-law is 8 years younger than my dad and 3 hours away, so we’re already trying to anticipate and plan for the additional challenges of geography with her.
