Final Day of National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo)!

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. It is the final day of National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo)! I made it! I did miss posting one day, but I am proud that I posted 29 days out of 30. The day I did not post, I realized it was because I was not organized that day and went to see my family but did not set up a post ahead of time and got busy. I know for the future to work on them ahead of time so I can get them posted.
I really enjoyed this blogging event and so glad I did it even when I had my doubts that I would not be able to do it at first. I thought I would run out of things to talk about and be posting bad content. I am glad it did not come to that. I realized I had a lot of post ideas I had thought of writing about already in my notebook and never did and then this event was a great push for me to think of topics and kinds of posts I had not posted on here before. I enjoyed writing the 25 questions TAG, the book review, and the "what blogging has given me" post to name a few that I have not done before.
I also enjoyed visiting other people's blogs who were part of the challenge and reading their posts. I discovered some new blogs to follow and met some great people. I really like the small community that develops over a short period of time when joining a challenge like this. Thank you Aimie from Blissfullemon for hosting the blog posting month! I hope your site is back up and running soon!

I would like to do this again next year, I think it is fun to have these challenges and it shakes us up a bit to think of different ways to meet the required one post each day.

My little lit up Christmas tree and knitted mitten ornament

Tomorrow is December 1st and the first day of advent and I have my Lindor Advent calendar ready to go. Of course, I will wait one day to have it because of the vegan challenge I am doing which ends on December 2nd.
I can't believe Christmas is now 25 days away! I am so excited. I also can't believe I haven't really decorated yet either. I have put up my small artificial tree beside my desk and put on a couple of ornaments, the mouse and the mitten ornament I knitted. I think with all the course work I have had, writing extra posts on my blog, and Christmas shopping it has been pretty busy this month.  I will be decorating fully this week and then putting up the tree sometime mid December.

My go-to Lindor chocolate advent calendar for the passed few years.

  1. Like you, I really enjoyed reading what everyone wrote during the month.

    Your little tree with the mitten and the mousie looks so festive! I'm glad someone else is as excited as I am. :-)

  2. I am more than a little excited about Christmas coming soon! Congrats on finishing the November blogging challenge.

  3. I think I tried the November blog challenge about 4 years ago and failed miserably. Well done you for doing so well! Love your little tree. I am terribly behind in decorating. I need to get on that next weekend.
