A NaBloPoMo retrospective

It’s the end of November! And I managed to post every day, as promised. There were a few slacker posts — “It’s whining time,” for example, and also “I drew you a hedgehog” — but I was pretty pleased to avoid doing many of those. The most widely read post in November was “An interview with a lady I don’t see often enough,” thus proving my hypothesis that everyone loves Amy. The least popular post of the month was “My brother is wise in matters of baseball,” which maybe only proves that Butterscotch Sundae is not the internet’s No. 1 source for sports information. The most frequent search terms this month were “tangled tower,” “how to quiet a cough” and “ikea kura.” There was also one person who searched for the phrase “nichole is a dinosaur,” and I don’t really know what to think about that.

Probably my favorite part of this year’s National Blog Posting Month extravaganza was the series of interviews I posted. Most of them went up on the weekend days, which typically don’t see a lot of traffic. So just in case you missed them, here they are!




The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear

We are having snow flurries. My toes are cold.

There’s eggnog in the fridge, and I’ll be loading the holiday music onto the iPod momentarily.

I put out a few Christmas decorations this afternoon. I’m still trying to figure out how to work with our quirky mantel. The kids and I are going to set the artificial Christmas tree up in the basement in a few minutes. I’m putting all of the extra stockings down there, too.

I love this time of year.
