NaBloPoMo is over

Another November, another NaBloPoMo done. I made it through all thirty days, but I came pretty close to not posting on two or three of them. I pre-posted (had Blogger automatically publish a post) on two days while we were camping in the Empty Quarter. I also almost consider the post I wrote about Bilingual Education to be cheating, since it was more to help me study than to contribute meaningful content to the blog.

So really, I think NaBloPoMo was easier than ever for me this year, even with my sometimes loaded schedule. Living in a foreign country provides endless fodder for blog posts, I guess. There's always something I can say about this crazy place called the UAE.

The truth is that I love NaBloPoMo more for what I get than what I give. I love reading blog updates from many friends who don't post regularly during the rest of the year. I also get to read my parents' blogs, which is nice because I get to hear stories I've never heard before. I don't think there was ever a day where I lacked for something good to read on my Google Reader queue. Thanks, everyone.

Here's to next year!

I agree about getting more than I give during NaBloPoMo. And I don't think you need to feel like you were cheating with the language-learning notes. They were very informative, even if they didn't make me chuckle like so many of your posts do.

I loved reading your posts! Thanks for inspiring me to jump on the bandwagon. :)

Your posts are always good and I love November because your mom writes and she has some good stories to tell as well. :)

I am so glad this NaBloPoMo is over. I struggled with it on more than one day as well. The funny thing is that now that it's December I seem to have a lot to say again. At least I won't feel pressured to write everyday. :)
