Today is the last day of National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo). I am glad I participated, even though it was definitely a much greater challenge to blog every day for one month than I anticipated.
Along the way I discovered it was often tough for me to come up with things to write about every day – or at least to write about things I wanted to share on my blog. I also found that I was doing less reading of other blogs and commenting as I was used to. Worse, I didn’t respond to the comments left on my blog posts – like every other blogger, I love receiving and reading the comments left on my blog. These comments truly gave me the energy to continue blogging each day. So thanks to everyone who read and commented on my posts. I figure I will get back to responding properly to comments now that I will be back to my usual blogging schedule.
I am also planning to do more reading that I have put aside. I am planning to dive into a book that I put on reserve at the library several months ago and received today. I read a fascinating review of the book – The Omnivore’s Dilemma, by Michael Pollan.
Both Second Nature and The Botany of Desire, two earlier books by Mr. Pollan, were great reads. The subtitle of this new book is ‘A Natural History of Four Meals’. In his introduction, Mr. Pollan opens by posing this question: What should we have for dinner? I will definitely let you know if I get some answers to that question. I suspect they will be fascinating.
I hope the sun continues to shine for everyone all weekend long just as it did here today. What a treat that was!
