Only one more day of posting for NaBloPoMo. When this all started I wasn’t sure that I could keep up, but I managed and it really hasn’t been too bad. There have only been a couple of times when I have struggled to come up with something to say. It is almost easier to write every day because it keeps me from trying to do long catch-up posts after several days.
The best part of NaBloPoMo has been all of the new blogs I’ve discovered and all of the new commenters that have been by my site. It is nice to see some new names around here. Plus, I seem to have lost several people when I changed my feed address so it is nice to be getting a little more traffic.
The worst part of NaBloPoMo is typing out NaBloPoMo (kidding!). Honestly, the worst part is that I didn’t keep up with my 30 days of thanks posts. I was all excited about it but eventually started feeling like it was just a little too forced. I prefer to write about whatever happens to be on my mind at any given moment rather than writing out planned posts. I am truly thankful for many, many things, including all of the wonderful friends I have met online but writing about it just wasn’t me. I guess I’ll know better next time around.
The absolute hardest part of NaBloPoMo has been keeping up with all of the blogs I like to read. With most of my friends participating as well, it has been even more difficult than usual to keep up with my feed reader. I’m hoping December will bring a little bit of a lull so I can rest and maybe do something besides stare at my computer screen.
Tomorrow, for the very last day of NaBloPoMo, I have put together a different type of post. I have gathered up some of my favorite wishlist items and put together my very first holiday gift guide. I think there are some great gift ideas on there so make sure to come check it out!
