One of the things I’m enjoying about NaBloPoMo is the requirement to read the blogs of other participants.
No, I don’t enjoy the subject matter in every post. I’m not into typical mommy stuff, and I don’t cook. And…I have to say it…and I’m getting very, VERY tired of websites with little fake snowflakes skittering down the pages. Between those 1995-style fake snowflakes and the black floaters in my eyes, it feels like I’m trying to read through a salt and pepper cascade.
(There. I’ve said it. The world didn’t end.)
No, what I’m enjoying is the sheer variety. Different personalities. Different priorities. Different writing styles. Different emotional reactions to events and situations that, on the surface, seem similar. What a wonderfully diverse buncha people! I’ve got a growing list of books I want to read, another list of things I want to learn more about, and I’ve come across one or two bloggers that I will be following for a long time.
(polishes crystal ball)
I foresee a cluster of new pages in this website’s future:
- Do! (things I want to do someday)
- Read! (specific books I want to read)
- Explore! (subjects I want to learn more about; skills I want to learn)
- Declutter Hall of Fame (stuff I haven’t been able to let go of, some of it photographed and eulogized before it’s donated or trashed)
This is going to be fun!
