My husband is breathing a sigh of relief right now. This is the last day of National Blog Posting Month, and I’ve written a post once a day for the whole month. Whew! I’m a little sad it’s over. November has been a wonderful month! I’ve had over 2,500 views this month, which for my small blog is unbelievable! I’ve written a total of 8,360 words. Not much compared to the 50,000 words that National Novel Writer’s Month participants had to write, but still–a lot of words!
I enjoyed typing away late at night, even though I was tired the next morning. I enjoyed wondering what I would come up with next, and surprised myself with some fairly decent posts at the last minute. I loved being part of a NaBloPoMo grid at Yeah Write, and I made connections with some wonderful bloggers. I know that I’ll continue to visit their blogs even though NaBloPoMo is over!
I tried to think outside of the box for my posts. The best part of “The Twenty Third of the Month” is not my words, but the words I asked my readers to write in the comments. My eight-year-old daughter wrote this post about What to do With Leftover Pumpkin. (Was that cheating? Just a little? I don’t feel too bad because I doubled-posted on Nov. 19. That’s right, I published 31 posts for NaBloPoMo.)
Yeah, I nailed it!
Congratulations to all of you who nailed NaBloPoMo, too!
