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!

    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!

    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
