A Conversation with You, the Esteemed Blog Reader

You: Hey, Brent. What's with all the blogging?
Me: It's just NaBloPoMo.
You: Is that your attempt to sound gangsta?
Me: Ha, ha. No, it's a portmanteau for National Blog Posting Month. I'm "celebrating" it in the traditional fashion by posting to my blog every day during November.
You: Are you sure that's this month? I thought November was National Diabetes Awareness Month.
Me: Well, yes. It's that, well as National Stamp Collecting Month and National Peanut Butter Lover's Month.
You: Will you be celebrating those, also?
Me: I don't think either of those are worth celebrating.
You: Well, your blog is nothing to celebrate, either.
Me: Touche.
You: What gave you the idea to participate in NaBloPoMo?
Me: I heard about it from my sister Andrea. She is participating, too. Be sure to check her blog regularly because she has some great posts.
You: What are you trying to accomplish with all this blogging?
Me: Originally, my goal with the blog was to report on all the things we've been doing lately. But as I look back at my posts so far, it seems a bit dry. So, I'm going to try to also add some posts that are more creative or insightful.
You: Well, this post is pretty good. After all, it's got me in it.
Me: I thought you'd like that.

I LOVE that you are blogging every day this month. I have enjoyed reading your posts and getting updated on some of the fun things you've been doing lately. But one of the best parts of National Blog Posting Month is that it does require some creativity in posting. This post was a good example of that!

Love that I didn't know you were blogging every day maybe I will try and get one up this month since I haven't written since September.

After nearly 19 years of marriage, you still surprise me with your random projects. 30 blog posts in 30 days is definitely on my favorites list of your endeavors. xoxox

I've learned a lot about you through your blogs, namely that you are one great husband and dad. I'm proud of you and love you very much.
