On The End of NaBloPoMo 2008

Flowers Made of Lights

Well, that’s all folks! Thank you for riding the NaBloPoMo train(wreck?) with me for a whole month. I guess I’m supposed to say something introspective about blogging in the end, but unfortunately, I don’t really have anything to say other than blogging because you have to is not as much fun as blogging because you want to. There were days during the NaBloPoMo when I would rather just go to bed instead of having to think up a post before going to bed. You see, my life is not really all that interesting. The state of the world, on the other hand, is interesting, but if I blogged about it, I would only end up feeling depressed and angry. Thinking up a post when you’re sleepy is just So! Frickin’! Hard! I know I could’ve written the post long before the day almost ended but I was always kind of expecting that something interesting would happen so I could blog about it. But most of the time, nothing happened. So I just blogged about nothing!

I’d like to thanks tia, Sarah and Lance for commenting, even on posts that don’t really have any substance (read: posts about nothing). You rock! I still have yet to count up the number of comments to determine the contest winner. That’ll be my blog fodder for tomorrow. Ha!

On a non-bloggy note, don’t you just love the picture above? I really want to have it printed and hang on one of our walls. (Is it vain to love a picture you took yourself?) I also love that little lamp with colourful, beaded shade I got from a thrift store ages ago. It’s so great for experimenting with shaped bokeh. I just knew that lamp would come in handy someday!

Let’s end this post with three cheers for everyone who made it to the end of NaBloPoMo this year without missing a post. I’ll do the hip hip part and you do the hooray, okay? Ready? Hip hip [hooray]! Hip hip [hooray]! Hip hip [hooray]!

Excellent! Now give yourself a pat on the back for me. Good job, everyone!

  1. you’re welcome… and by the way, I suck in photography but I ALWAYS love the pictures I took!
    … aaand, sucks this is over. I kinda like you blogging so often.

  2. November was a busy month, wasn’t it? But I had fun, reading and commenting. I was learning a lot of things, and really appreciating the wonderful photos posted here. Let’s do this again next year? Hopefully life will have gotten more exciting!
    Hip hip hooray indeed!

  3. Oooh, shaped bokeh link! Thanks!
    Also, maybe your new challenge should be to blog once or twice a week – it keeps you in the habit but isn’t as restrictive or terrifying as once a day? Just a selfish suggestion really, because I like your link popping up on Google Reader! x
