  • NaBloPoMo Winding Down

    It’s NaBloPoMo, National Blog Posting Month. For the month of November, I’m going to post every day. This is day 24. I can see the end of NaBloPoMo! This was much harder than I anticipated. It’s not that I don’t have what to say, as I usually do. It’s that I don’t have the time to properly […]
