Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.


NaBloPoMo 2011

NaBloPoMo 2011

What the heck is “NaBloPoMo” you might be asking.

It’s a new one on me though not a big leap from “NaNoWriMo” which I *did* know about after spending way too many late night hours on writers boards since I started working on Kindle cookbooks.  NaNoWriMo is the acronym for “National Novel Writing Month”.  It’s a challenge to write 50,000 words of a new novel during the month of November.  It began, as a project among friends, in 1999 and last year more than 200,000 people signed up. 

I thought about joining NaNoWriMo as a “rebel” (something I’ve been called more than once) and work on non-fiction but I didn’t get around to it.

Turns out I’m in my own challenge right here on Centers and Squares.  I’m an unoffical member of NaBloPoMo and I didn’t even know it.  The Real Estate Tomato, designers and hosters of this blog, are running a Post Every Day challenge in November again this year and I’ve signed up. 

Little did I know that lots of bloggers are hitting the keyboard in November.  National Blog Posting Month (aka NaBloPoMo) was inspired by NaNoWriMo and debuted in 2006.  Bloggers are encouraged to post every day in November.  Starting this year it’s hosted by BlogHer, the online community / platform for women bloggers.

Inquiring minds want to know – is NaBloPoMo now for women only?  I’m not sure. 

More than 2000 bloggers signed up before registration closed on November 5th.  The NaBloPoMo blogroll is an invitation to lose yourself online with links to blogs with enticing names like It’s a Party Not a Picnic, Sweary Poppins, The Bipolar Badger, Reticent Bitch, Habitually Uncool, Single Woman Double Life, The Floating Lush, Procrastination Princess and 2208 more (admittedly the blogs I plucked from the list probably say a bit too much about what piques my interest!). Check them out!

    Well, I’m way too late to this party Liz. Who knew it was National Blog Posting Month? Your title certainly peaked my interest. As did your “recommendations.” The Bipolar Badger is definitely one I’m going to look for when I have a little more time to lose myself online. (Some pretty cool titles you plucked out there.:)

    Hi Denise! Yeah – this was new to me too – but accountability – or a contest! – certainly helps keep me on track.

    Don’t you love the sounds of those blogs?!

    Very interesting! I’m a Real Tomato blogger too, working hard to do my daily blog, and I also signed up for the November challenge. I’m new to blogging as of about August, so need this constant work to drive up SEO. Thanks for a very interesting and informative topic!

    Hi D’Ann,

    Thanks for stopping by! I love the RET – and your blog looks smashing! Good luck with it – I’ve found it to be enormous fun. You never know where it will take you. They require a lot of feeding, TLC, etc but it’s been worth it for me.

    At Historic Buildings of Connecticut I’ve done a post a day since 2007.

    Wow! I love your blog. The photos are wonderful and your posts are really informative and well researched – it’s an amazing resource and great fun to browse too. I can certainly understand the time entailed. What’s your secret Dan?

    It takes some time, but not a huge amount, thankfully!
