Nearly The End Of Nablopomo

29 Nov

Nearly the end of Nablopomo

This whole month has passed in slo-mo

There’s only one more day to go

Then no more daily posts to show


Back to me posting as and when

No more pressure for me to pen

A daily blog, again & again

from weekend it could be none – or ten


Next year? Nah, I don’t think so

Just want to let the postings flow

Naturally, when the mood is right

Not wracking my brain every night


But I don’t give up on whatever I start

It’s been a challenge to take part

Couldn’t make each post a work of art

But I tried my best – on my heart


But thank you WordPress for the chance to try

And focus my brain, though it’s been a tie

Will be glad when it’s over – tell you why

I’ll be free! Nablpomo, goodbye

Not Long Now

27 Nov

Not long to go now with Nablopomo. It finishes on Friday thank goodness. It’s been a bit of a bind and I probably won’t do it again! But I started so I’ll finish…

NaBloPoMo November 2012

On the plus side it has introduced me to some blogs I probably wouldn’t have seen by checking under the topic heading in the reader.


Speaking of the reader, some of the new posts haven’t been showing up at my end. So I’ve started checking each site from my blog roll every so often. I’d hate people to think I wasn’t interested in their posts.


Also, some comments and ping-backs have been going straight to spam, so I have now started checking those very carefully.

I have changed back to the Bueno theme as you can see. The last one was nice, but I wasn’t keen on the reply post background in the comments section. Plus I prefer the straight lines of this theme. I can have an Archive page too.


Ha ha…I have finally figured out to make a custom menu and put certain post categories at the top of the page. Brilliant.

This site here explained it well. I’ll keep it bookmarked for further reference in case the brain cells fail me again.


On a final note. It is Lancashire Day today.

Lancashire Rose

From Wikipedia:

Lancashire Day is held on 27 November. It commemorates the day in 1295 when Lancashire sent its first representatives to Parliament by King Edward I of England to attend what later became known as The Model Parliament.

Curated by the Friends of Real Lancashire, it was first observed in 1996 with the loyal toast to “The Queen, Duke of Lancaster”, and is open to celebration from everywhere within the county palatine.[1] The day since has been widely publicised, including mentions on the BBC website[2] and in the local press.[3] The day receives support from both district councils[4] [5] and Lancashire County Council;[6] Bolton Metropolitan Borough Council has resolved to support the day every year.[7] Many towns throughout the historic county host events on the day,[8] most notably readings of the Lancashire Day Proclamation.[9]


1 Nov

Blimey, Am I mad or what? Signing up for a post a day for the whole of November. I know sometimes I make more than one post a day, but other days, I might not post at all.

I suppose this is the easiest of the posts to write, just stating that I’m taking part in it. Will see how it goes anyway. Just hope I don’t get too boring. Will have to get my thinking cap on.
