February Bloggers

Last year, Tuscan Artist challenged the Slow Travel bloggers to blog every day for the month of February, inspired by National Blog Posting Month, or NaBloPoMo. This year, my good friend Annie challenged us again! I'll try to do it this year, but last year it was easier: I had a less demanding job and I was living in Baltimore where I didn't know a lot of people, so my evenings were usually spent working out, watching TV, or playing on the computer.

Lots of people have signed up so far - you can see them in the sidebar under the "February Bloggers" logo. I want to thank our fearless leader Kim for making the logo and programming the widget - and for helping us run our blogs!! Kim is a Slow Trav administrator and does a fantastic job!

I can't decide whether or not to do this. It sounds like fun but I am afraid I would fail.

Jane, I am sure you'd do fine - you could schedule posts in advance, split up posts, post photos or articles - I think you'd do fine!!

I'm amazed at how many people are up for this!

You know, if something comes up and I miss a day, I'm not going to fret. And we can always back-date a post to fill in a missed day. :)

Chiocciola, I know what you mean! I'm already stockpiling ideas...but the challenge is good for me. (Still, I suspect I'll be combing through old travel photos for a nugget of something new to post!)

I am also amazed at how many people signed up this year. I will always treasure out Feb. blogging month from last year. It was so much fun getting to know everyone. Not sure if I will be able to keep up with comments and blogging every day. It will be a fun challenge. I have been so busy with a class I have been taking (which thankfully is now over) that I haven't even started to stockpile. I might have to do a few one photo posts.

I haven't started stockpiling either, I better get on the ball!!

Hey girl, I wanted to share this link with you. I stumbled across the Library of Congress' collection of old (late 19th c) images and there are a bunch of them from Norway, and they are gorgeous! I'm pretty sure these are public domain which means you could use them on your blog if you wanted, but I mainly just wanted you to see them.

Annie, that is so cool! Thanks so much! They are really interesting. Maybe I can write something about them in February - I am worried I won't have enough to write about!

Cool, I'm glad you like them. Would make a great blog post or two. I got sucked into the Library of Congress website and wow, there's so much great stuff. I found some very nice old vintage images of Venice that I'll probably put on my blog soon too.
