NaBloPoMo

Is this sudden deluge of posts after a long silence surprising? I’ve fallen out of the habit of blogging at all, so this is a last ditch effort to test if I want to stay with it or stop for a while.

Deeleea inspired me to join in with NaBloPoMo – National Blog Posting Month – and post every day of November. Following somewhat the dictates of William Morris, I’ll see whether what I manage to write by the end of November is either known to be useful or believed to be beautiful. If not, or if I don’t get a reasonable distance into the month, probably best to stop. Good thing you can schedule posts to publish ahead of time or I would have already missed a couple.

I’ve been away this weekend on a training course, learning more about preaching. They introduced us to some ideas from NLP (neuro-linguistic processing). I found it fascinating, but since it was the second session, I then spent a lot of energy during the rest of the weekend analysing the communication preferences and styles of the speakers rather than paying too much attention to the content. There were handouts, however, so I can go back and read them if I need to.

Blinking into the sunlight

As usual, I went to look at the most recently updated wiblogs this morning. Imagine my surprise when I found that I had written my first entry in my sleep last night.

So, er, hello. I am a long-time lurker who has finally plucked up the courage to join in with your lovely wibsite. Thanks for your welcoming comments on the mysterious automatic-wiblog-checker post. I had some teething problems logging in, which is probably why it is there.

I am at work at the moment, so should probably not spend too long crafting the perfect first (well, second really) post. Suffice it to say that I am extremely pleased to be blogging at last (and only a little bit nervous about making a complete fool of myself) and I look forward to a long and happy association with you all.
