Actually, I managed 40 posts in 30 days. I looked on the NaBloPoMo website this morning and learned that I am eligible to win a prize! Who knew? If I'd been aware that there was a possibility of my winning more than the satisfaction of having posted to my blog every day in November, I wouldn't have moaned so much about having to come up with something every freakin' day.
Yesterday, while checking in with the various new blogs I have discovered through NaBlo*, I learned via Shea at Cake and Icing that December is Holidailies month, which is pretty much the December version of NaBloPoMo. I seriously thought about signing up for it -- hey, maybe there are more prizes involved! -- but its organizers seem to have too many rules. For instance, they strongly discourage posting more than once a day, to which I respond, "Huh?" It's like telling a hardworking student not to bother with the extra credit assignment, even if she's only doing it for fun. I much prefer NaBlo's loose, hey-just-get-something-out-there approach. So I'll give Holidailies a pass and return to my irregularly scheduled random topic posting. Thank you, vast readership, for continuing to read during this difficult time.
