What I Liked From NaBloPoMo #4

posted in: Blogging, NaBloPoMo 10 comments

In the spirit of NaBloPoMo, I will be sharing my favorite posts from fellow participants, every Friday this whole month. I hope you find the time to click through to some, and show them some love. This is the last in the series, but I may continue to do weekly love-other-blogs posts next year!

Familiar with the “witching hour’, moms? You’ll relate to Allison Barrett Carter’s post, Why I Stick My Head In My Pantry – hey, you do what you have to, right?

This is the 28th post for the month, and you probably know by now – I cheat here and there by doing wordless posts, and my weekly photography challenge post. Plus these round up posts! So I loved reading Vikki Reich’s The Creative Process, because well, I wish I was this creative. So funny.

My oldest son is only nearly-5 (omigosh), but I loved Jenny Kanevsky’s Mom, Can You Make Me A Sandwich, about the push and pull of age 12, teetering between child and young adult. I cannot wait for 12 (imagine sarcasm font!).

Cleaning. There is no middle ground – you either love it, or hate it. Alexandra Rosas hates it and has eleven reasons why (only 11, Alexandra? Heh.). Go read Only One Reason To Hate Cleaning? I Have Eleven.

Some love the day after Thanksgiving (not because of Black Friday), but because it’s well, not Thanksgiving anymore. Greta Funk’s I Hate Thanksgiving is not what you think – it’s not being ungrateful, it’s just wishing that Thanksgiving can just be what it’s about – family.
