I actually liked NaBloPoMo this year. Last year it was rough, but this year it was a welcome kick start. What I liked the most is how much better at coming up with post ideas it’s made me. I’m constantly looking for ideas and pretty much everything makes it into a post. Shopping for toy storage solutions? Put the contenders in a post. Forget your own last name? Post. Writing a novel-length comment? Make it a post of its own. Meg says something cute? Write it down, for goodness sake, I need something for the blog. I even went back through all my unpublished posts and tweaked/finished several of them for posting.
Then, bonus! I have funny stuff Meg said/did saved for posterity. Jen sent me a link to plans for building a toy cubby thing and my husband is building it! Plus, I’ve had way more email conversations with commenters than in a long time (or, actually, ever). I hope to keep posting several times a week, but you know how December is. It’s kind of a bummer NaBloPoMo is in November, because you get on a roll, then the holidays are likely to stop it in its tracks. Hopefully I’ll at least get around to Christmas photo posts!
