      I couldn’t either. Still can’t believe I decided to do NaBloPoMo. (almost at the end, thank goodness!)

  • November 24, 2014 Janine Huldie

    Yup, never writing that I cupcakes are bad for you either, but the migrating from Wordpress to Blogger or vice versa, I could and have written πŸ˜‰

      I know! I’m leaving these bloggy tech posts for the experts like you. πŸ™‚

  • November 24, 2014 Kari

    These are AWESOME.
    Once I read a quote on Pinterest about how glitter is the herpes of the crafting world.
    I think that pretty much says it.

      Bahahahaha! I’d say that’s accurate.

    These are great. I love e the HTML 101 one. It is most certainly Not easy.

    • November 26, 2014 Alison

      It isn’t, is it? I can’t figure it out. Too many letters and numbers and whatnot.

  • November 24, 2014 sarah reinhart

    ruh-roh. what’s wrong with leggings? I live in them. LIVE in them. I think I have maybe 20 something pairs. Leggings, tunic tops, boots. It’s my uniform. Do you think less of me??? πŸ™‚

    • November 26, 2014 Alison

      I do not because I LURVE you. But I can’t wear leggings, they are just very unflattering on me.

      Heh. Thanks! It was fun to write.

    Ha I tried to give up sugar and it’s failed – I LOVE desserts and I can’t live without it. I HAVE cut back on added sugar like adding it to my coffee and cutting back on sodas and drinking water or natural juice. I think that’s helped me feel a bit better so I count that as a success. I wouldn’t write how to go from Blogger to Wordpress or vice versa either; I’m not an authority on that. Lol I almost pulled my hair out doing it! Funny topic love and have a great one Alison! -Iva

      I don’t take sugar in tea or coffee either. But like you, I love my desserts and sweet treats too much!

      Right? I’ve cut down, but I can’t give up my beloved cupcakes and such.

  • November 25, 2014 Greta

    Ha! I would be worried if I saw any of these from you. But I’d blame it on sleep deprivation. πŸ˜‰ (I am learning to love the fleece-lined legging this winter, though!)

    Ha, I love this list, hilarious and I really think you absolutely should write about 10 reasons I love leggings!!! I would never write very personal posts, no spilling on my blog.
    Clare recently wrote…My Childhood BooksMy Profile

    • November 26, 2014 Alison

      I don’t wear leggings because they make me look short and stumpy. So a post like that would be full of lies, lol.

  • November 25, 2014 Amber

    Haha, same here on a lot of those. Especially the glitter one. I feel like we always have glitter around the house.

    • November 26, 2014 Alison

      I have a little girl now, and though it’d be years before she does any crafting, I’m pretty sure there will be glitter. Oh god.

  • November 25, 2014 Allie

    OMG these are hilarious and I would agree to most of them! One post I will never write: Running Is Bad For Your Knees!

    • November 26, 2014 Alison

      But some of these are health posts that you would write, maybe? No?
      I take it back, you wouldn’t, no. You’re one of the most well-balanced fitness/ running bloggers I know. You work out hard, and you enjoy your food. πŸ™‚

    what a cool idea! I just might use it one day!
    Mine would probably be, “Why I have a whole drawer full of white socks.”

    Or “How I gave up chocolate for a year.”

  • December 20, 2014 Ellie

    If I ever wrote about Fifty Shades of Grey, it would be about how inaccurate it is with the BDSM community, promotes women being subsmissive in everyway of life, and how rape is okay because it’s during “roleplay”. Also how being an asshole is what women want and if you’re hot, everything is okay. And that women will forever be sixteen even in their twenties. This is the type of book I’d burn and books are my life.
