Back from the Dead.....

Yes, folks, I'm alive. I have no excuse but to stumble back to work tomorrow. Ironically, my kids (being in a different school system in a different state) are off tomorrow and Friday. I was going to try to take tomorrow off to hang out with them, but since I've taken 3 sick days....well, they will be here and I will be there. My dad will keep them supplied with daily McDonald's and the house will look like a bomb went off when I get home, but..oh well!

I was flipping around the blog channels and stumbled across THIS over at Comments from the Peanut Gallery. I'm going to try it, too!
What is it?
It's National Blog Posting Month!
Why the hell would I want to do that?
You started a blog to make yourself write more often?

NaBloPoMo is an alternative to November's NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, the program wherein you crank out a novel in thirty days.

Some of us lack the imagination, stamina, and self-destructive impulses required to write a novel that quickly, but, by Grabthar's Hammer, we can update our blogs every day for a month!



And I challenge the following people to do it with me: Tense Teacher, Mia, Heels, Yorksdevil, Kristi (Interupted Wanderlust), KentuckyGurl, KaraMia (Life..or something just like it), Tricia, Redneck Nerdboy, and Sunshine! Come on people, we can do it!

That's all for now. A more coherent post to follow tomorrow, if I'm not completely exhausted by a whole day of real work!

PS Does anyone know how to fix my blog template? Somehow the sidebar got stuck WAY down below and I don't know how to get it back where it belongs! Help!

It's at the bottom because one of the images you have uploaded in a post is too large for the content area.

Two ways to solve it. Go through and figure out which picture, or, go through and make the content area of your blog (usually designated width, under the content heading) larger and decrease the left padding.

I usually don't have 'net access on Sundays but I do post pretty much every other day anyway.

Glad that you are feeling better. I wasout sick yesterday too. I enjoyed my day snuggled up on the sofa at home all alone.

I try to post everyday during the week. I don't have internet access on the weekends. You know I am one of those work bloggers!

I agree with Kitty Kat above. Try lowering the width of the images you might have in your sidebar to 200. That works for me, usually.

Re: NoBloPoMo... do we need to join something? I'd love to do it though!

You CAN write in your blog everyday. You know you can. Thanks for the link!

Kristi said...

Oh God! The pressure! I am going to try my hardest to do this, and take up your challenge. But... new baby might make this easier said than done. I still may be able to pull it off, though, if all my posts don't have to be coherent. lol.

Thanks for nominating me for this!

Every day for a month? I dunno.....do you people want just a one word post or something? Cuz I can totally do that. LOL

Tense Teacher said...

I can probably do that... I usually post almost daily anyway, but I may have to do as KG said.
