I didn't make it through the entire month of May blogging every day, but I did get much further along than the last time I tried to play along with the NaBloPoMo gang. Yesterday, I received an e-mail telling me that the blogging theme for June is “Now”—though it's not required that you blog on the theme at all, it's just a suggestion or guide.
I've been doing a little bit of poking around the Internet looking at weekly themes and thinking about what it is that I blog here at Pasticcio. As described, it's definitely a “potpourri, miscellany, and mélange” of the things that interest me at any given point in time. It's got some recipes and meal plans. It's got some crafting. It's got travel. It's got family. It's definitely not just one thing. And, it's very much Now. I've been trying to go back and tag the older posts—and add some consistency to the tags as well—to make it easier to find posts on one topic or another.
About the only thing that's not found here with any regularity is a discussion on books or reading. Instead, all of those items are posted over at Reading in Texas. I don't like writing book reviews, so the reviews that are found there are just my reactions to a book and not a true review with an introduction to the plot like you'd find at other sites. In fact, Reading in Texas is more of a diary about the process of reading than it is a book review site. And that's fine with me. It's mine and it definitely reflects my personality.
I'm off to update the layout and sign up as a June participant over at NaBloPoMo. You know, cheerleaders for NaBloPoMo would be nice, just like the ones who visited Reading in Texas in April when I was partcipating in Dewey's 24-hour Read-a-Thon. For now, I guess I'll have to be my own cheerleader.
