We can call NaBloPoMo a success here at Life in the Country, with a blog post published for every day in November.
How did you go? Did you take part?
The Links Roundup –
Here are some brilliant links I saved – there were a few more but when I went back to the blogs I was going to link to, they had not approved my comment, so a big wet raspberry to you, instead of a link. :)
Crock Pot Pumpkin Butter with Vanilla Bean and Port – I can’t imagine how excellent the house would smell after slow cooking this. :)
Day 14: My Love Hate Relationship With Facebook – I am having my own love hate relationship with it – I’m within millimeters of hitting delete account.. I am so over FB resetting how I see my stories. I do not want top stories, I want most recent. STOP CHANGING IT BACK FFS FB.
knitting litterature – If you love knitting you will love this post. :)
Six Word Fortune Cookies – Pick a number between 1-20, then go to this post to get your fortune cookie. :)
Giving Thanks to the Goose – The turkey was once a goose.

The Mother of Mom-Themed Links Post – Some more excellent links.
Favorite Cookboks Written By Bloggers – I already read one of these blogs so I found four more awesome reads here. :)
Leopards of Bera, Rajasthan – Some gorgeous pics and a great story as well.
Saturday Suppers: Corn Chowder – I am so making this. :)
Orange Marinated Chicken with Potatoes and Asparagus – And this – I am always looking for new ways to prepare chicken and this one will be a hit with the other half who loves orange.

The NaBloPoMo Bundles –
You can browse the first bundle of blogs here –
You can browse the second bundle of blogs here –
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.
You can browse the keepers list here –
NaBloPoMo Keepers 2014 – Updated 23/11/14
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.
The Nano Poblano Bundle –
If you did take part but you have not yet linked up, you still have some time to add your link below.
Unlike a regular link up – Please link to your BLOG URL, not to a post. :)

I am so over FB resetting how I see my stories. I do not want top stories, I want most recent.
Yes!!! Yano, I’m glad I’m glad I’m not alone in that annoyance…and the “courtesy” message on the website (which I notice hasn’t reset itself yet in the last few days) saying “You’re viewing the Most recent”…as if they’re saying…”Are you sure you want to be viewing that? You know we can’t manipulate what’s seen if you select this”
(though I still miss a shedload of stuff, and get old things in my feed)
I also think WordPress is calling me a spammer now, and my comments are not appearing on other sites :(
A quick suggestion regarding FB, because I, too, wanted Most Recent and No Top Stories / Trending ….
I discovered and installed FBPurity, an add-on for FireFox that “fixes” what we don’t like about FB.
It must be installed from their website because the version on addons.mozilla.org is an older version (nine-something) that doesn’t work with the latest version of Facebook. It’s up to version 12-something.
I haven’t figured how to get rid of all the food pron. I don’t think it’s sophisticated enough to perform image recognition and block certain images. But if it could, I would.
I’ll have a look and see if there is something similar for Chrome. :) Thanks for letting me know about that! :)
Ooh! I like it already for this feature – “Fix External Links” – makes external links work without Facebook tracking it ;)
I’ve installed it on Safari (which I’ve found myself using as my primary browser now instead of Chrome since Chrome has become so slow on my Mac…); looks like it’s available for Chrome too ;)
I’m glad you mentioned that WP might be identifying you as spam. I did find a comment from you tucked in my spam folder and marked it “not spam.” Akismet is supposed to learn so I hope it figures that out.
You did an insane amount of work.
