Who remembers LaBloShoeMo? Anyone? Anyone?
Well, for those who don't, let's recap: In November of last year, Flickr jumped on the acronym bandwagon (a la NaNoWriMo and NaBloPoMo) with NaBloShoeMo - National Blogging Shoe Month. The premise was to post a picture a day of - what else? - shoes. You can imagine that a shoe-lover like myself would have been quite keen on this idea.
Unfortunately, you might remember that last November was a tough time for me. I wasn't ready just then to jump into something as frivolous as a month of shoes, so I held back. Those were sad times, when even the idea of shoes couldn't cheer me up.
But by December, I was ready to try something new, something a little brighter to cheer my days. So, since I was too late for National Blogging Shoe Month, I created Lara's Blogging Shoe Month - LaBloShoeMo. And the rest is history: I became known as "that girl who's always buying new shoes" and people started coming to me for advice whenever they needed to go shoe shopping. Woot!
Well, it's almost December, and that means it's almost time for LaBloShoeMo, version 2.0. Unfortunately, this year, it's coming on the heels of daily posting for NaBloPoMo, which means I'm not so eager to post shoes every day - I'm not so eager to post anything every day. But I will be adding shoe pics to my posts, so that you can all "Oooh!" and "Aaah!" over my fabulous fashion sense.
And, as a special bonus, you are all invited to join me! You don't have to post every day if you don't want to - you could just do one dedicated post to all your shoes at once if that's what strikes your fancy. I'm even going to make adorable badges for you to post if there is sufficient interest, so let me know.
In non-shoe-related news, I'm back home, safe and sound, and the kitten is already asleep in my lap. I had an interview tonight with a new family, so hopefully some good news will be forthcoming on the job front. And The Cold That Would Not Die continues to wreak havoc on my sinuses, but I am confident that ultimately I will be victorious.
