Help a lady out, why don’t cha

So, I signed up for NaBloPoMo… Now I’m freaking, wondering what in the world I’m gonna post every! day! for a month!

Hey, I’ve done crazier things, like that time that I… oh. never mind. I’ll save it for a post in November. But that’s just one post! What about the other 29 days in November!?

Well, here is where you, my sweet dear friends and readers come in. Taking a cue from Megan at Sorta Crunchy, I’m asking you for ideas.

I’m throwing myself out there… setting myself up for embarrassment from the possibility that no one cares and no one has anything they wish for me to wax nostalgic about, pontificate, discuss, sermonize or lecture on.

The questions can be silly or serious, mundane or philosophical (that is a direct steal from Megan’s request). Questions about me, my family, my beliefs, the color of my carpet… I’m even willing to do research on a topic (like I did on chiggers). Obviously, I’ll pick and choose the ones I like the best and that make me look good! Oh, I jest – y’all know how transparent I am. Who else has written about pin worms on their blog!

Now 30 questions does put a lot of pressure on the 2 people that read my blog… but I know you two can do it! BRING IT ON! Otherwise, (and this is another blatantly plagiarized statement of Megan’s) I’ll be forced to answer my own questions (or to copy-and-paste from Megan’s blog everyday!)

Just leave them in my comments or email me.


  1. LOL! You’ll find something to say. OH, have I told you yet that I love your new header? I can’t remember.

    I’ll try to think of a question. :-)

  2. Megan (FriedOkra) says:

    I will think up a question for you if you promise to think one up for me. Thanks for the reminder! I haven’t signed up yet and I suppose I need to get that done today! eek! :)

  3. oh man… I can’t even think of my 30 blogging things so I am unable to help you BUT i look forward to reading what you come up with!

  4. Cindy Swanson says:

    Here’s one, Karla. Tell us the story of how you met and fell in love with your hubby. I always enjoy hearing people’s love stories!

  5. you could always tell “knock knock” jokes if writing material gets really thin. hehehe.

    here’s a question — what is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happanned to you?

    and another —
    how old were you when you became a christian?

    and one last one —
    how did you become a blogger.

    that;s all i can think of right now.

  6. Megan@SortaCrunchy says:

    You just copy-and-paste all you want to, mama!

    Shoot, I was going to ask how/why you started blogging. But since that one has been asked, how about

    tell the birth story of your baby that hubby delivered at the hospital


    what’s your favorite mexican food dish


    I know you don’t want to teach again, but what was your favorite part about teaching first grade


    what’s been your favorite place to visit in the US?

    That should help some. :)

  7. Chiggers and pin worms. You just can’t get much more interesting than that!

  8. i recently did a 150 things post and thought that would be a great resource for 30 days worth of topics if you needed it. you could start with that as a post and go from there. you just copy and paste the 150 things then bold what you have done.

    i was considering doing NaBloPoMo but it feels too overwhelming right now.

    I’m doing NaBloPoMo, too — I know the feeling! You could try spending an imaginary million dollars…. or (near the end of the month, when the frenzy hits) write your Christmas list… or do a profile of a blogging friend or a charity’s website you love…

    And if you really get stuck, you could do a whole bunch of memes!
