OK, so here we are at the end of October and there is a certain inevitability about the fact that I am about to announce that I will attempt NaBloPoMo or National Blog Posting Month again. Yup that’s 30 posts in 30 days. Don’t all laugh at once, I’ve done it before. Not last year, admittedly. I only managed two weeks of lacklustre one liners that time. But previously I have been mostly successful.
However, just to up the ante impossibly, as well as NaBloPoMo, which is supposed to be an Internet-wide thing despite the fact that it seems to have gone to ground at BlogHer these days, I am also going to do NaJoPoMo, which is the h2g2 Nation’s Journal Posting Month. The difference? Well, it’s a community thing, and I really like finding out more about people in that community, especially the ones I don’t usually run with. Also, since most hootooers aren’t bloggers, they tend to have an entirely different take on the idea. This year, people seem to be deciding to give themselves themes to work around this year too, as if posting 30 days straight isn’t enough. Plus it is a writing site, and there were some astonishingly good journal entries last year.
Not that the same isn’t true of the NaBloPoMoers I’ve met before. Really, if the whole Internet would just join h2g2.com, my life would be a lot less complicated.
Anyway, I could get away with posting the same think on there and here except… I’m not going to. Or at least, I’m going to try not to.
There I am going to be doing a series of posts around the idea of a toddler’s guide to London. Here I am just going to catch you all up on the amusing things my kids have said and done in the last year or so. I also have many, many holiday pictures saved up. You lucky, lucky people.
Anyway. I’m back and I’m blogging. For a few days at least.
