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
