I signed up again for NaBloPoMo this year. For the uninitiated, that's the National Blog Posting Month, started last year by Eden Kennedy of Fussy. This year, it's way bigger, and there is even a social networking thing on Ning. If you're a NaBloPoMo-er, you can sign up for different groups and post things and keep track of how your friends are doing.
Last year, I completed it and even won a prize. I completed it, despite the unexpected, untimely death of my father-in-law, and despite some random holidays thrown in there. I completed it, but failed to write our annual Christmas letter to friends. After Grandpa Jim passed, we weren't much in a holiday spirit, you know? I think this year, the Christmas letter will probably be posted on the blog, to save all those trees, reduce the carbon footprint, and all that.
Also, the wonderful JenX of One Plus Two awarded me a Perfect Post Award for October for my post called "Why Poverty Matters." I'm particularly honored to receive this from Jen, who is a great writer and a humanitarian as well. Thanks, Jen!
Our MOMocrats blog is flourishing, and so I suspect when I'll be cross-posting some here and there during the month of November. I missed the debates Tuesday night because I was too busy worrying why the house was shaking, but I have on good authority that our guy John Edwards kicked some butt and took names. It's about time.
Happy NaBloPoMo, people! Let the posting begin!
