30th November

Well here we are — November 30 — the finish line of National Blog Posting Month. It seemed pretty simple: post once every day. But it’s really not that easy. I can’t exactly explain why; for me it was even harder because I’m already a very sporadic blogger, but I wanted to take on this challenge to see if I could commit to writing something (however inane it might be) each day. The truth is, I’d like for this blog to be a better record of my thoughts and to be something that others would like to read. Unfortunately I’ve not always had a lot of time or focus to devote to it. I’m not sure if that will change now that I’ve completed this challenge, but it might. I think that I need to consider what I really want out of this outlet and then build from there. In any case, although right now I feel like I kind of hate blogging, it was sort of fun — if for no other reason it gave me a chance to say to Jamelah on more than one occasion: “I have nothing to write about.” or “I haven’t blogged yet.” or “I really hate November.” I wrote a missive about November last year and I think while much of it still holds true, I have to think about how much has changed in a year and what that means. I can only imagine what will happen by the time November rolls around again.

You know it’s a slow news day when one of the “top stories” is this


And yes, that also means I’ve pretty much run out of things to blog. Only one more day left for NaBloPoMo and I’ll have succeeded. At what, I’m not sure, but all I know is that as of tomorrow I’ll have blogged for 30 days straight and that has to count for something, right?

Sure, sometimes online overload can drive me crazy, but I also pick up a few good/funny/interesting/amazing things along the way.

— This is nothing new, but just more confirmation that Google is the devil.
