It's NaBloPoMo -National Blog Posting Month, which follows the tradition of NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. The latter is an event in which people commit to write a novel, 50,000 words in 30 days time. That is a LOT of work, but an effective way to establish a good daily writing practice if one does not already have one. I am not a novelist, but have thought in the past couple years of doing some sort of writing practice in November. I happened to come across info about Blog Posting Month, and well, here I am.
Just came across NaPhoPoMo, National Photo Posting Month! Some people are posting photographs every day during November. I have been doing that, putting a photo with most of these blog posts, not even aware that it was a thing. Most of these photos are one I have taken in the past, but a few are current, taken the day of the posting or one day before.
So without realizing it, I have been “killing two birds with one stone”, so to speak, posting a short written blog and photos every day. Thank you for reading my posts, and I hope you enjoy the photos too. My nature photos are depictions of beauty, sometimes a glimpse of something lovely in the ordinary. I believe that one aspect of God is beauty, seen in the midst of the ordinary. As when we see a colorful sunset or sunrise. The light of the full moon in a clear night sky. Or when the colors of a Maple or Oak tree in autumn are brilliant in the midst of evergreens. Or the flashing red feathers of Cardinal against the backdrop of snow. The glimmer or raindrops on a new leaf in spring. I pray that when I post a photo or two on my blog or on Facebook, or show them to friends, that people are seeing a glimpse of the glory of God's creation.
Happy writing, blog, or photo posting month, or just happy November to you. And again, thank you for following my blog.
