NaBloPoMo: Reflections

I had planned to write a post on how I got involved in Al-Anon, but I'm too tired to tackle that tonight. Maybe tomorrow.

For now, I offer you, on this last day of NaBloPoMo, my reflections on the experience (even if I did miss a day. OK, two days.).

• NaBloPoMo should not fall in the month of Thanksgiving, when many people travel and might face unique challenges in posting. I propose March. What happens in March? Nothing. It's still winter (even though ever year I think it should be spring), there are no holidays, and I generally find it to be a dreary month.

• I feel (and readers my disagree!) that posting every day led to more interesting posts in general. I got out of the rut, at least sometimes, of giving cancer and twins updates and got into some more meaty stuff about myself. And what could be more fascinating than posts about myself! Ha ha! Yes, I am the center of the universe!

• Posting never felt like a chore to me, although certainly some days I would not have posted if it hadn't been for the fact that I said I would.

• I don't think I'll keep up the post-a-day pace, but I do think that I'll be more regular about posting since it was a near-daily habit for a while.

To all the official participants, good luck! I think some of you will get prizes. To my readers who slogged through my posts every day, thank you. You keep me going.

I always enjoy reading your posts...and given all that you have to do, I'm impressed you have time to write every day!

It was fun to read, and I agree that your posts were great, glad you'll continue, even if not daily, and I like your updates on family too!
