Thirteen Things about Mrs. T's Blog

1…. I am going to give the ol' NaBloPoMo a try, as I mentioned. To keep myself from stressing every day over what I shall write about, I have come up with a month-long plan in which I have a theme or focus for each day of the week. During the month of November, anyway, I will be participating in the Thursday Thirteen.

2. Fridays will be host to a "Friday Forum" in which I open up something for discussion. Does that make me a comment whore? Maybe. Oh well.

3. Each Saturday, in honor of the extra over the top show on Univisión, Sábado Gigante, I will be posting in Spanish. I apologize in advance to any butchering of the language that I may do.

4. Sunday will be a snapshot of something I feel like sharing with y'all. Any requests?

5. Mondays will be a trip down memory lane. I will post something about my past. Don't get too excited, I'm really not that interesting.

6. Tuesday will be Teacher Talk- I'll post something teacherish, either what I'm doing in my classroom or some pertinent educational issue.

7. Wednesday will be my Book Chat- I'll post about what book I'm currently reading or maybe an old favorite.

8. NaBloPoMo reminds me of the Seinfeld episode "The Contest" for some reason. Only instead of pledging NOT to do some, uh, pleasuring of the self, we are all pledging to do it. Isn't this just the writer's version of that, anyway?

9. The title of my blog, Chuchería, means: Knick-knack, trinket, or tidbit in Spanish. My friend and I used it constantly when we were in Mexico- lots of chuchería in the shops.

10. I feel horribly unskilled in this whole blogging thing- most of what I know how to do I know by accident-just fiddling around. I don't know if that makes me quite clever or quite dopey.

11. I'm always a bit disappointed when one of my blogging friends drops out.

12. I am curious about Facebook, but don't want to be accused of being a pedophile, so I haven't ever looked at any of the sites.

13. This is the first time I've ever officially done Thursday Thirteen OR NaBloPoMo.

I'm super impressed with your plan for success. I was sitting at The Eternal Stoplight this afternoon thinking, "Crap. I have nothing to blog about today."

I signed up for Facebook a little while ago, but I'm such a big dork, I don't get it. My close friend at school signed up this week (so now I have a friend), and she says it's really cool--better than MySpace. Yea, uhm. Not too hard being cooler than MySpace, but at least I know people there! Knowing that I have a Myspace, you probably think I'm a pedophile now, aye?

Wow, you are organized. It really helps to have a plan. At our blog, my co-administrator gave us a schedule setting out our "blogging days." It's not a very strict schedule, but it does help (sort of)to have a commitment to someone else. I really admire bloggers who keep themselves going!

Anyway, welcome and I look forward to hearing reports of your progress!

HINT: You might want to reset blogger to accept comments from nonblogger platforms. I can't leave you a specific link, but I have some gorgeous autumn photos posted at:

How fun are you?! What a great way to participate in NaBloPoMo with a theme for every day! I think it will keep both you and your readers fully engaged. I wish I would have thought of that, instead of the SAME thing for THIRTY days...hopefully interspersed with some daily slices of life. :)

Good luck with blogging every day. It's more than I could do.
