NaBloPoMo Bundles – Final Edition


Yesterday I spent my day sorting through the first 700 blogs on the NaBloPoMo blogroll. The numbers do not add up.

I am totally mentally exhausted. I’ve divided the list in two to try and avoid confusion and to try and make it a little more manageable..

Here is the first list I was working from – NabList. I’ve tried to fix the URLs so they work, because is not a url that works at all, nor is and I’ve cleaned out all the double ups.

The bundles are a pretty awesome thing, and you do not need an inoreader account to be able to view them. Just click on the link and you’ll be taken to a screen that looks like this –


You’ll mostly see photos and titles but if there was no image in the post you might see just text. You can browse by scrolling down the page and if you see a photo or title that interests you, click on the title to visit the blog.

You can browse the first bundle of blogs here –

NaBloPoMo 2014

I now have a new bundle which I am starting to build from the second list. I’ll be going through and trying to add as many blogs as I can today but it may take me till the end of November to finish this project, especially if I want to keep commenting on blogs every day..

UPDATE – The second list is now completed.

If your blog is on the first list or the second list but is not in the first or second bundle, it means I could not access your blog, or that there was no feed associated with your blog. I have kept a record of each missing blog and why it is missing, so you can contact me and I can let you know why yours is missing.

There is also my “keepers” – blogs that I connected with right away and know I want to be reading long after November is a distant memory. If your blog is not on this list, do not worry – I just need a little more time to get to know you. :) All the blogs I have added thus far will be staying in my feed reader for now.

NaBloPoMo Keepers 2014Updated 23/11/14

It is possible that I may not finish this commenting challenge. I have 10 days left, 2 of which will be taken up on an overnight trip to Canberra – you’ll hear all about that in early December – so that leaves 8 days to comment on just over 700 blogs. I hate to not finish things but at the very least I will finish creating the second bundle.

There are now 65 73 blogs on the NaBloPoMo linkup which is a pretty decent number – you can add your blog to the linkup via this post.

Apologies to my regular readers –

The fact that I can create bundles of the blogs is such a great thing and I’m excited about it. I promise this will be the second to last NaBloPoMo post here – the final post will appear on December 1, which will be a final wrap up and links list.

The post originally scheduled for today will appear much later today. :)

  1. I’m excited to browse through your bundles! Very cool that you have taken the time & energy to put something like this together. And thanks for the comment on my blog! Hopefully I will actually get something new posted today…which means I will have to ‘fess up to the ridiculous amount of cake I ate today. Definitely not “No Sugar November”, lol.

  2. This bundle thing is insanely cool and so much more fun than the mind-bashing list of blogs in the NaBloPoMo Blogroll. I usually try to surf around the blogroll more and visit other blogs during November, but this year I’ve found it hard to even keep up posting, so I just connected with a couple of new ones early on and stuck to commenting on those. Appreciate your visit, and your reminder of where I got the expression ‘metric fuckton’ from – apparently it was just floating around my subconscious ever since that episode.

  3. The fact that you organized all the blogs from NaBloPoMo is so awesome it makes me want to go and clean my closet right now. Seriously though, I try to follow the blogroll on the NaBloPoMo site but it’s such a monster mashup that I end up feeling like I’m stuck in the middle of WalMart on Black Friday and I end up leaving all frenzied. And I want to thank you for adding my smart-assed little blog to your list of Keepers, even though I’m majorly failing NaBloPoMo this month. I blame global warming. I can do that, right?

  4. This is such a cool thing, Snoskred — just read a wonderful post (about a mother battling homophobic crap in her PTA) that I never would have come across in a million years — like having a pile of magazines in one place, without even needing to turn the page:)

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog, My Ambiance Life. You are absolutely right, I need to earn how to say no more to my nephew. Thanks for the encouragement.

    • @ Patricia – I had a friend when I was in high school, and I had an awesome car with a great sound system and I loved to drive it. So anytime she asked, I would jump in the car and take her, wherever she wanted to go, until one day her Mum asked me to stop driving her around or else she would never be inspired to get her own licence.

      So I did stop, and I told her why – because it was time for her to get her own licence, and within 2 weeks she had her learners permit. :)

      I love my nephew and if he asked, I’d drive and pick him up and take him somewhere. He lives eight hours drive away, and I would still do it. :) I think it is good for him that myself and my parents did not live very close to him when he got to 16, because we would have driven him around if he wanted.

  6. Thank you for stopping by my blog today and commenting. I am more than impressed with all the hard work you have done in preparing these bundles and dropping by to visit everyone. There are so many great blogs to read here. It’s a bit overwhelming – I don’t know where to start reading!

  7. @Thebluestbutterfly – I am so glad re Inoreader – I have found it to be awesome and they have some great support forums too.:)

    @ Square Peg Guy – You are welcome. :) When I discovered I could do this, well, I can’t tell you how awesome it is. I think I’ll set one up for my blogroll as well. :)

    @Brandi Hanson – It was a lot of time and mostly a lot of copying links and adding them. But the end result is so worth it. :)

    @allison – That NaBloPoMo blogroll was honestly one of the worst put together things I have seen in a long time, no offense meant to the person who created it. But if I were doing it, I would check the URLs as I added them to make sure they were right, I would check to make sure the blog was a blog and not just a site looking for links.. there were some dodgy marketing websites on there. And YAY I got it right about Dexter.. I was worried for a minute.. ;)

    @The Fearless Scribe – Yeah global warming is totally the reason! ;)

    @Carpool Goddess – I hope you found your blog in there as well, I double checked to make sure.. I am pretty certain I left a comment at yours reasonably early on in November.. ;)

    Tammy @ creativekkids – Loads of time but the end result is pretty awesome. :)

    @Sharon Greene – I think just browsing through the bundles and see if anything jumps out at you.. that is one way to do it. :)

    @Charis – You’re welcome! ;)

  8. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and for compiling lists of the NaBloPoMo blogs! I have just begun blogging again and unfortunately have already fallen short of the NaBloPoMo!!! But, I had a good reason. My family was visiting from out of town. :) Have a great week!

  9. This is really cool. I am glad I took the time to check you out instead of hitting the “SPAM -send out into space. Delete. Beep!”-button.
    And I am glad you took the time to put these bundles together. Many thanks for your efforts or as we say in German “Vielen Dank”. Pure awesomeness!
