Today is the first day of NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) and Nanopoblano (the World’s Least Official Blog-Everyday-November Challenge.) Basically, it’s an initiative to blog something (anything) at least once a day for every day of the month of November.
I’ve been blogging in a kinda half-hearted way for the past five years or so, and I’ve done the NaBloPoMo/Nano challenge at least the past four, but I flat out quit writing completely this past year. As a matter of fact, I just logged into WordPress to discover that the last blog I posted was on November 10, 2017, a mere third of the way through last year’s November challenge.
That makes me sad and mad and frustrated to give up on something I love to do (write) but that sometimes feels too much like a chore (deadlines/inspiration), so despite my crazy work schedule, I’m back for this month to at least try.
We’ll see how far I can get this time.
Oh, and for the highlights reel of real estate life today (which, btw, is what I do)…
I attended an incredibly interesting continuing education class on the History of South BeltLine neighborhoods in the city of Atlanta…
and sent a card and a chew toy to a favorite client’s awesomely sweet Goldendoodle puppy, Noor, who, bless his little heart, just had ::cough:: the operation, and (according to our client) is miserable in his cone.
Hopefully here (and with blogging) at least the thought will count for something.
I’m happy you are writing again,Kim.I have missed your NaBloPoMo several times a week. We never know what will come !!
You got this! 🙂
It’s good to see you here again! You can do it!
And, I love your handwriting. 🙂

Bahahaha! Hilarious and creative! Feeling guilty about my own noblog but not enough to get the fingers galloping. Hope to see y’all during the holidays. 😍

You’re doing very well Kim, I’ve been linking to your posts and am now trying to catch up with reading all of them! I too enjoy the challenge of writing for the month, I tend to default to Author Interviews when I am not writing poetry for Nanopoblano and National Poetry Writing Month in April. I figure that if I can do thirty days in total (even if I get behind) then all I have to do is write for another thirty consecutive days afterwards and I will have enough material for another poetry book, which is good enough incentive to keep me plugging away, even when I’m up until the wee hours and feeling tired. Hope you keep feeling motivated all throughout this month and we can support you in your journey, look forward to checking out the rest of your posts 🙂
