Curtain call

So how did I do?  Well yes, obviously I succeeded in the goal of posting every day.  And I am proud of that.  But did I actually contribute something worthwhile each day or was I "clogging up the internet for the sake of endurance" to quote the organizer of NaBloPoMo? 

Please keep in mind, I'm not saying videos of cute puppies and kittens aren't worthwhile, 'cause you know me better than that!  I mean, whose day doesn't get better when you add some of these:

(I think some people need 'em more than others and I'm not naming names but you know who you are...hmmm?)

Looking back at last year's NaBloPoMo I think it was easier for me because I was so new to blogging, pretty much anything was potential blog fodder.  Now I have to stop and ask myself, "Did I already talk about that?" or wonder "Does anybody really want to know about that?" You get the idea.

I am quite sure that I will never become one of those people who blog every day of the year.  To those who do - I salute you.  Because my life is just not that darn interesting (at least I don't think so) and any attempt I might make for daily blogging beyond one month would result in being one of those people who blogs about the tiniest minutiae of my days such as what I ate for each meal and when I last washed the dishes. Blehhh.

I think in the long run I'm better off aiming for quality over quantity.  And I think you'll be happier too.  To celebrate successfully completing NaBloPoMo, I might even take a few days off from blogging.  I've got some speed knitting to crank out and a few other tasks this week. So for now, I will take a bow...and exit, stage left.

Hey, I'm all for clogging up the intertubes with cute puppies & kitties. ;) Enjoy a few days off and your speed knitting.

I think you did a fine job and deserve to a rest. I've enjoyed the puppies and kittens very much. Never would have seen them if it hadn't been for you. I told you before, I find you to be a very interesting person. Why do you think I keep coming back? Silly girl. :) xxoo

Congrats on a successful blog-fest! I think that blogging has really forced me to look more closely at my day to try and find an interesting angle on it. Some days it works...others not so much.

Enjoy your well-deserved break!

Glad you made it. I know if I tried to do it 365 days my content wouldn't be readable plus I wouldn't get nearly enough of anything else done.
