November Novelties – 2019 – Aw, Nuts

It is November now so of course I needed a new title for my blog posts.  I try to come up with something catchy each month but I don’t want to duplicate so I was checking my archives to see what I had used in past Novembers:  Last year was “Noted in November.”  I only posted 10 times though so in a few years maybe I’ll bring that one back.  In 2017 it was “No, it Can’t be November” but there was only 1 post!  In 2016 it was “A November to Remember” and I actually did pretty well with that one, posting 26 days.  When I went back to 2015 I had used “Nostalgic November” but as I scrolled down I saw that one of the posts had photos missing! 

Aw, nuts!  Looks like I have some cleaning up to do on the blog.  Maybe I’ll rewrite some of them and delete the ones that have pictures missing.  Not exactly a fun undertaking since it could get very time consuming.  Still, I want to have a fully functional blog and if pictures are missing, maybe some links don’t work either.

In other news, I am so honored that my author friend, James J. Cudney, IV., did a small write up about me in his newsletter this month!  He so generously linked to my Etsy site as well.  What a guy.  I’ve written about his wonderful mysteries and the latest one, Haunted House Ghost, came out this month.  I entered a contest to win a signed copy of the book and I DID!

Doesn’t the cover of the book look like a card I made recently?

Well, maybe not exactly but close.  Anyway, decided to use November Novelties as my title this year.  What do you think?  Do you clean up your blog once in a while?  Like a good mystery?  Lemme know!

Playing along with Linda’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday too where the prompt is “nuts.”

  1. Janet,

    I try to keep an ongoing eye on old posts that have issues like broken links and have done a lot of cleaning up over the past three years. This is not a fun process especially if you let too much time lapse. It’s been too long to remember if Blogger offers a ‘Broken Link’ plugin but if they do you might want to check into installing it yours. It’s an invaluable tool to have, imo. Best of luck to you on this job in November. 🙂

    I agree with Jill, I like November Novelties! I do try to spruce up things, my blog will be the next thing, after the other DIY thing I’ve got going on. Your card is so creative, nice job, and way to go, that’s awesome your author friend mentioned you in his newsletter!! Happy November, Janet!!!

    It really does look like your card! Cute card! Traditional spooky houses on a hill are traditional for a reason.
    Titles can be difficult, says me.
    When I did not work full-time, I paid my blog better attention and cleaned it up, checked links, etc, but now, I’m lucky to be here at all, so no time will be spent in maintenance! 😉

  4. I like the title and the alliteration! So cute. And the card really does look like the book cover! Amazing!

    I don’t do blog clean up on my blog. If I wanted to make money or grow a following to be popular or whatever, maybe I would. But in the early years, I didn’t do the picture properly so I have a lot that are missing but I don’t care lol I have so many posts now (like over 2000 I think?) that I can’t be bothered to do all that work when I’m so busy with other things.

  5. Hi.

    What a great post! I’m glad you could include the newsletter. I was so glad to highlight you in it. I have more to say about that but I’ll email you separately soon. 🙂

    I love that the card on the house looks so similar!!! What a great job. I must have a few. Can I order them from the site or do you want me to handle it differently? I don’t know if you have to make them per order, or if it’s not an easy task!

    November Novelties is very catchy. I love a good mystery. And I “spruce up the place” aka my blog once or twice a year. It’s about that time again.
