Nano Poblano Survivor Badges

I made it!

Fish Of Gold

As promised, I made some badges for those of you on Team Pepper who persevered and posted every day in November (even if you missed a day or two–we won’t tell).

Get ’em while they’re hot and spicy. And if that wasn’t enough, don’t forget to check BlogHer. They usually hand out badges for NaBloPoMo, too, so you can brag twice as much.

Congratulations to all my fellow Pepper survivors! Now we can go back to completely neglecting our blogs! 😉

Shall you throw a fit? Produce a snit? Have a conniption that will never quit?

What to do…

As I sat type-type-typing away on my recliner this Sunday morning, my dear wife Karen looked over from the couch and said, “Is this the last day of Nano Poblano?”

No tone. Straightforward question.

Yes, dear, said I. She had me. Yes, I was indeed going up my email notifications, last night to right now, trying to catch up on the last batch of Team Pepper posts by bloggers I’ve become acquainted with this month of November. Like, do I? Comment, will I?

Quite the month it’s been, yes?

Our three blog hops were wildly successful, in my humble opinion.

There’s still the rest of today for you to participate in the contest portion of The Name Game by clicking the link above and sending me your guesses.

The Blog Hop Story has ended up in the able hands of originator Fishy. I’m figuring she’ll end it with a…
