Relieved and happy to be done with the daily posting. Sad because I’ve enjoyed meeting lots of new bloggers. Happy because most days– I’ve made a couple of weekly commitments– if I post it will be only because I have something I really want to say and I’m in the humor to get it posted. Sad I won’t be able to search the “Nano Poblano” tag and run down a list of great posts by lots of people I haven’t met before.
When I posted the other day about being too tired to write I garnered a few messages both privately and on the blog giving me advice about how to plan better next time. My plan next time: state clearly from the beginning that I’ll post as much as I’m comfortable posting but am not committed to posting daily.
In the end I only missed one day, with a couple of not-quite-a-post days when at least something went up. But I also had many days when I posted on two of my blogs and a few more when I posted on all three. So total posts for November is over 30 and I feel very accomplished.
My creative juices bubbled up and I learned it’s probably a good idea for me to work on posting more often than I have. I also really saw the benefits of engaging more with other bloggers than has been my habit.
I’m following a new bunch of blogs and I’m being followed by a bunch of new people. I’m pleased that happened and sad it’s about to slow down unless I keep up with spending more hours a day on this than I have… I participated more with the Nano Poblano folks but I always dipped often in the waters of the NaNoBloMo headquarters. So many amazing blogs, so little time…
All in all, I couldn’t be more pleased that when I first saw the Nano Poblano info on November 2 (having fortuitously happened to have posted already on the first) I spontaneously decided to jump in. Thanks everybody for making this a great, fun month!
