NaBloPoMo 2015

I didn’t want to announce that I was doing NaBloPoMo this year, because what better way to jinx it, right? But I also didn’t want to skip it. I’ve done it every year since I started this blog in 2008, making this my 8th year. So far I have yet to miss a day. When I told Brian I had to do it because I’d done it every year, he asked if I was going to do it every year until I die. And no, I’m guessing not, but I do intend to do it every year until I’m ready to say that I’m giving up blogging. Despite what this year’s archives might say (no posts between mid May and October!) that isn’t yet. I still want to write here, and I love having this record of day to day life. In fact, I feel like I’ve short-changed Lydia a little with my lack of posting. The three older kids all got so much of their baby-hood recorded and she didn’t. I’m hoping that this will jump-start my writing again, but I also feel like maybe I said that last year, so we’ll see. Whatever happens, I’m here for now.

  1. This is why I’ve started blogging again, honestly. I don’t actually feel so much like I’m short-changing Annika by not recording stuff as that I’m short-changing MYSELF by not having this, essentially, searchable record of all the stuff that’s been happening and what my kids are like at various points in time. I started a five-year diary for this purpose as well, and love it, but there’s something about the ease and tone of blogging that fills a niche for me as far as record-keeping, which is why I am trying to do it more.
