Thankful Day 30: DONE

Today I am thankful that NaBloPoMo is DONE and I DID IT and I will NEVER DO IT AGAIN. I am both proud of myself for posting every single day (MORE THAN ONCE if I had sponsored content, because I felt like that was cheating) and annoyed at myself for posting every single day (because I am not that interesting). I think I ended up annoying people more than anything – my comments dropped significantly, which for me defeats the whole purpose of blogging. Not because I need constant reassurance that I’m awesome (although that sure is nice TOO) but because hearing YOUR stories and thoughts and advice is a huge part of why I bother to write my thoughts here on the interwebs instead of in my journal. So, dear friends, if I promise to write less crap, will you come back now? Pretty please?

Things I WILL be blogging about in December: cookies, Caroline’s first birthday party, how much I hate cleaning my house, knitting, my fight with myself over possibly weaning the baby, Little Evan’s inability to control his own strength, house plants, tattoos, traveling with kids and Christmas decorations. I will also be taking more naps, eating too much and dedicating a LOT of time and energy to finding the perfect bubble bath.

Today I am thankful my blog can go back to being whatever I want without feeling like a quitter.

    I think your comments went down because a lot of blogs were posting more often, so people were probably reading a lot of stuff and just didn’t comment as much. Plus, everyone is getting busier with the holidays coming up. You’re still awesome, and my favorite blogger…definitely one of the funniest mommy bloggers out there!

    Hooray for you! Seriously, that is quite the achievement. I wouldn’t worry too much about the comments dropping, just put up another post with pine cones and you should be good to go.

  3. Stacy says:

    Ooooh, can’t wait to see what you do for Caroline’s First Birthday!!!!!

  4. I found many blogs annoying during NaBloPoMo this year. Yours was not one of them. Good job finishing!

  5. congrats on writing every day for a month! i simply could not do it, and never fear, i wasn’t annoyed with it all. um, but for serious, i can’t believe caroline is about to celebrate a whole year. do you find the time is going even faster with two sweet babes? cause i do.

    Congrats. You ARE awesome.
    I looked forward to reading every day, and I can’t wait for Dec. :)

    I still read everyday, and enjoyed it. I do get what you are saying though. I did sort of the same thing, and found myself being annoyed with myself. I was (am) having trouble thinking of things to write – I still have yesterday and today to do. I felt like I was grasping at straws and it was coming off as cliche and disingenuous. While it was a neat exercise and did allow me to really think about things that I’m thankful for, doing it everyday was definitely overkill for me. I look forward to going back to posting 2x a week if I’m ambitious and only posting about relevant things, like Knox eating shampoo.

    I can’t get enough of your posts! I’m your biggest fan! Makes me feel close to you even being 400 miles away…

  9. I don’t know how you do it. I write *maybe* 2-3 posts a week and even that’s hard. Even if I find something to write about, actually getting on the computer and typing it up is a whole ‘nother story. I look forward to reading all your upcoming posts especially about the birthday party!!

    I read your blog everyday too and rarely comment! but I am really interested in the possibly-weaning post. and Caroline’s b-day post. That baby girl has the cutest clothes ever!

  11. Jacquelyn says:

    For the record… I never comment, but I read every post :)

    and you are wonderful. I LOVE your blog. LOVE LOVE

  12. Alana says:

    um, i haven’t blogged since july! JULY!
    high five on the blogging everyday!

    Good job! I quit NaBloPoMo on..umm…the 29th. How lame is that. I realized I had skipped a day and thought, “oh well then, let’s quit.”
