Art Every Day AND NaBloPo month all together

Oh my – why did I sign up? Aaaaah – I have so much to do and don’t know how to fit it all in with all the projects and, of course, 8 – 5 (well, if it ever is actually those hours) work. I must like pressure or…

For those not in the know – usually me – or those who don’t like or have some kind of an issue with all the abbreviations today – definitely me – NaBloPoMo stands for: National Blog Posting Month. Meaning, of course, that those participating commit to posting

This is the morning of November 1st. I have no idea how I will be doing this. But I am set to give it my best shot.

My regular readers know what to find on my blog, so this bit here is for those stumbling over here for the first time.

First of all, you may notice it here and there my blog is currently undergoing renovations. It seems like there never is a good time for those, don’t you agree? Having new friends visiting while your home is not (almost) perfect? Here’s the thing though. I am pretty much a perfectionist when it comes to my work i.e. my art and my day job. However, with my home and friends visiting I am a lot less picky. Actually to the point that hubby says ‘shouldn’t we tidy this or that before xyz gets here?’ Which is when I usually reply ‘yeah, yeah, just give me a minute until I have finished this or that image’.

What can you expect from visiting my home in space?

  • Random rambling about my work and life with hubby in New Jersey
  • Tons of photos, I am a photographer after all
  • The occasional tutorial about something photo or photo editing related
  • Lots of drawings, many of them manga style, and WIP (hah – here we go again – Work In Progress)
  • Bits and pieces of geekery, maybe tech and gaming, with a side of windsurfing and biking

Did I mention that I looooove the ocean? We just returned from a vacation at the Outer Banks, NC, so I still have tons of photos to share from those weeks. But first a glimpse at fall.

I think this is enough of an intro to the month of November on my blog.

And remember if getting a daily email from me is too much, simply switch to the weekly compilation of my posts? Please let me know if I may lend a hand in doing so.




If I have time I will be linking with one or more of the fine people in this collection – check them out!

  1. Pretty leaves. Our fall was not so colorful this year. I guess it was the hot cold hot cold weather. I guess you do love pressure. I have more time than you and would not do well with blog post a day. It was all I could do to post a Halloween shot per day during October! You are a brave girl!

  2. Oh gorgeous!!! Love it. Ours up here have mostly now fallen to the ground, and because we had so much wind and rain – I never managed to get out and take some shots. And now I just realized that I was thinking the wrong thing about this month – I thought it was WRITING month. Meaning you commit to your personal writing, a certain number of words per day, for each day. NOT Blog posting. Oh bother. LOL
    Well, I guess we will see what happens. I’d rather focus on the writing to be honest, but maybe I’ll share some tidbits as I go.

    • Hey Les, there are different memes out there. You are totally right, it is NaNoWriMo, which might be what you are referring to. However, NaBloPoMo might be for you, totally. They – Blogher – are providing prompts if you like those and I am sure you would be a great asset. You may still sign up until 11/5(?), not that you really have to, but… Obviously I will not be writing as much as most of the others, but I will try and post regularly as I have not done that in way too long. If you like check out their prompts for week #1 here:

      p.s. I’d love to have you as an accountability partner in crime!

  3. Wow Claudia, I’ve never heard of the NaBloPoMo before. I should have gone for that, too because I post every day anyway. And I try to post every day, not just in Nov.

    Your photo is superb. I’m in awe of phones that take better photos of anything I can capture with my camera. I don’t have a cell phone, so these camera phones really blow me away. I adore what you accomplished with a little photo manipulation and a great beginning photo.

    See you tomorrow.

  4. I hope the leaves still look like that! I’m doing three shoots in NY/NJ this weekend and it’s well past peak time here!
    I think it’s awesome that you are doing this! I nearly always post once a day for work (at least weekdays), so I couldn’t possibly sign up for this but I really admire when people do. They get to explore such cool things.

    • It has been quite windy, raining leaves recently, so I’d say it depends where you go and the angle you are going to shoot, you might get lucky. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

  5. Someone asked me about the NaPloMoe and I had to honestly decline… I just don;t have it in me. I can’t keep up. I love that my inbox has lit up from your emails though, so thank you. The photo is as always, stunning!

    • Thanks for your words, Tiffany! You know how I am always afraid to send out emails too often… I joined on whim and so far, so good, but it is only the beginning…
