It’s official. You are no longer Peppers you are now Padawans. I mean, first of all because Nano Poblano is over…“I know Quix — DUH!” (Yes, I’m a little behind…)
But also, in honor of the new Star Wars movie coming out…
How cool are these Star Wars themed Bitstrips?? When I saw them I shrieked with delight. Um, yes, I am that geeky…
In my last post I announced that I was quitting Nano Poblano. It did kind of feel like a fail. But, you know what? I actually did really well. I just looked at my two blogs combined (this one plus my other, private blog) and I wrote 40 posts in the month of November! Those are just the ones that I actually published.
Here are my five most popular Nano Poblano posts if you missed them:
I did have a lot of trouble actually enjoying Nano Poblano and I think it’s because I had a lot of personal issues that I really had to take care of. There didn’t seem to be enough energy to do that and write on this blog, which I hoped would be more fun. It was fun but also very stressful for me. The part I did like very much was making new friends and interacting with you all. That was great.
Here are are some new blogs I discovered through this event:
- kimicalreaction’s Drunk on Life. Her post I Carry Your Heart With Me, in which she memorializes her “sister from another mister” was so sweet and moving.
- I enjoyed Raven Pendrax’s blog, After the Incident, particularly Zombie Turkeys.
- I discovered that Stephellaneous Beginnings and I have a lot in common. (She) (likes) (parentheses) and, I, like, commas. We both enjoy late ’80s/’90s music and culture (word!) And she likes to use the word “fuck” which I appreciate, a whole fuckin lot.
- “A” from Sidereal Catalyst is the most beautiful writer and artist. I particularly loved her poem “Broken”,in which she so very accurately portrays what Major Depression feels like.
Those were my favs, but please do not be upset if I didn’t mention you. There was simply not enough time to write 40 blog posts, read all the wonderful Nano Poblano posts, and deal with my personal life!
However, now that there is no pressure for me to write posts I would like to go back to discovering and reading new blogs and focusing on commenting. If you have a blog or post that you think others would be interesting in reading leave a reply and I (and hopefully others) will check it out.
