NaBloPoMo and Traveling are Not Necessarily Compatible

Conclusion from Day 18 of NaBloPoMo 2007 and Ms. Jen’s blog : daily text posting whilst traveling is not necessarily compatible without spending too much on international data on one’s mobile and/or trying to find wifi and the time to blog whilst visiting and exploring. Right now, we here at Black Phoebe are in a bit of a fail mode.
The photos are relatively easy but the text blogging, not so much. This whole thing is causing me more stress than necessary. The worst part is that I have quite a few blog posts I would like to write, but by the time I get to my computer late at night the last thing I want to do is write on mobile, or development, or life, or the world, or even possibly the universe, or the political / philosophical implications thereof. Or the recent daily impassioned post I have building in my head about my hate / hate relationship with PHP, PEAR, and the Flickr API. Or even what I did that day in travel-land.
Bah. So, rather than continue my blogging self-flagellation party here, I am now going to turn off the computer to research what we are going to do in the next few days in Ireland, where we should go, and possibly where we should stay. Otherwise, Mom and I will be driving around the M-50 in circles.
