Show-and-Tell Sunday: NaBloPoMo, 2 Days to Go

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.

What’s What: The Sunday Salon, November 23

What’s What: The Sunday Salon, November 23

What I’m reading and writing I am working my way through my podcast backlog during my daily commute after finishing my audiobook read of The Magicians trilogy. I probably won’t post my thoughts on that one (those three?) until after December 1 even if I finish writing them up before that–this is still Nonfiction November, after all. After posting “revisited reviews” for that event all this past week, I have a new review scheduled for […]

Sunday Salon: Sort Of Short On Substance

Sunday Salon: Sort Of Short On Substance

I suspected that the past week wouldn’t be good for either reading or writing, and sadly, I was not wrong. I’m holding down the blogging fort by revisiting some book reviews from the archives for Nonfiction November; two have gone up already, and three more are lined up for this week. I’m not sure I’ll get an original post done for this week’s #NonFicNov “Diversity” prompt, but I did put together a short reading list of books […]

Sunday Salon: “Fall Back, Fall Off’ Edition

I’m not sure that posting these “Sunday Salon” updates so late in the day on Sunday catches as many dedicated Sunday Salon readers as morning posts do, but since I usually have more time to write them on Sunday, I think may keep to this schedule for now. Bonus: I almost get to count these for Monday, too, since I know most of y’all won’t see them until then anyway. What I’m reading in print […]
