To Survivors of November Challenges, Personal or Otherwise:
For most people, this day has rolled around with nary a whimper– but for those who took on a November challenge, it’s a big day. The official day of survival.
I just wanted to quickly say:
I’m proud of you.
Taking on any challenge for 30 days straight can be mind-numbingly exhausting, and whether or not you met your goal or all 30 days of the challenge or reached 50,000 words– you did it. You took a great big bite of the fiery season and you lived to tell the tale.
If you checked off every goal item on your list, even better. You are a double super star.

To me, as a reminder:
Hey, me! Goal-wise, we didn’t really hit our mark, did we? I know we usually post once or more a day, but our goal was to try to comment more and to use motivating the Poblanos as a much-needed push to do so. We started strong, but tapered off toward the end– even though we were still reading. I hope we didn’t let my tiny peppers, rowmies, or column-mates down too much! Hopefully they won’t mind me playing catch up like a crazy woman.
A crazy woman who talks to herself.
On the bright side, we met many a new friend, didn’t we? I hope that this goal of learning to comment regularly will follow me into next year and be absolutely trampled with success.
I am filled with all sorts of motivation right now. There are posts I want to write, and goals I want to set, and comments that I need to get back to now that my brain is all the way on again.

To my readers:
Thank you for the loving support. I have been hearing all around the ‘sphere how Rarasaur readers brought the numbers, the support, and the love. I knew I could count on y’all.
I hope all this blogging has inspired you and led you to brilliantly spicy new friends.

Thank you– to the whole Yeah Write team. Without you, all of us would have lost our mind. 105 people linked up on the grid, and put in an amazing amount of community effort: http://yeahwrite.me/nablopomo-13-day-30/
And thank you for the badge. It’s gooorgeous!

To my dear and spicy Poblanos:
You are fantastic. I’ve been honored this month to be on a team of such delightful, varied, talented, honest authors. Every day, y’all have surprised me, awed me, moved me, and tugged my heart strings. Thank you for your efforts. Your successes, advice, humor, poetry, and friendship spiced up the ‘sphere!
I’m happy to make you a badge that you love, with whatever words on it you want. You have certainly earned a personalized one. For me, I thought the look that summed it up best was something a la Scout troop survival skills.
Now that my attention is brightly focused again, what did I miss? Did any big stuff happen for you in November? Or any important small stuff? How did November treat you?
Also, I’m on 8 followers away from a nicely rounded 500 followers on Twitter. If we haven’t connected there yet, come on by and tweet with me. https://twitter.com/Rarasaur
