So today is the last day of NaBloPoMo November 2012. I missed a few days, but I can say that the last two months were pretty sucessful for me, given that blogging is a new adventure for me.

It was clear from Day one of this month that I enjoy non-November NaBloPoMo better. Last month, there was a managable number of blogs, and I found a handful that I now read regularly (Giggling Truckers Wife, The Modfather, Nested, Wrinkled Mommy, etc). I feel connected with these women, and love coming online every day to see what story they will tell, or advice they will give, or frustrations they will air.

With this month, there were so many participants, that I was overwhelmed. I maybe read four new blogs out of hundreds. I never commented on those new blogs, and didn’t keep up with linking to my new posts.

So with that, I’ve decided to take a break from NaBloPoMo. I want to focus on having quality posts, instead of feeling the need to upload a random picture. I have a lot of things I want to air and to talk about, but it is hard for me to write a well thought out post with the few minutes a day I have free.

Thanks for all the encouragement and for tuning in!

  1. My eyes went wide when I read my blog name up there! :)

    I’ll keep bobbing back regularly to see if there is a new post up on here….I’ve opted for another month of NaBloPoMo madness…Part of me is dreading it! Last month was absolutely mad with the amount of new bloggers taking part, I looked at the list and was like “wow, where do I even start with reading these?”

    • I may consider doing it again in January. I think the volume of posters overwhelmed me too much, and I didn’t get that sense of community that I got in October! But I keep you on my google reader and check in every day!
