Blog block

I sat here for a couple hours this morning trying to decide what to write about. I have so many topics swirling around in my head, I couldn’t decide which one to go with. Should I blog about the 5-week-old Yorkie puppy we have been dog-sitting for the past week and how sad I am […]

This is my FOURTH year participating in the Blogathon, and seeing as I haven’t blogged since the end of January (ACK! How did that happen?!?!?), I figured I needed a good, swift kick in the pants to get going again. Being accountable, to an extent, gives me motivation to meet my goal. The chance to […]

The Dark Side

It has been a shamefully long time since I have written much of anything, and particularly since I have written here. Shameful mostly to myself, because writing is such an integral part of my being. Yet whenever I need to do it the most, I stop. You see, this particular holiday season has found me […]

My little gentleman

The other day, Logan brought home a journal he made at school. I had to laugh at the cover, where Logan had spelled his middle name, as he does with every word he doesn’t know how to spell, phonetically. No comment on the misspelled last name.(He and I have been over it many times.) As […]

Back to blogging

I haven’t blogged for a reeeaaalllllyyyy long time. Which, I guess, duh, you’ve probably noticed, if you’re a regular reader. My dear friend, Amy, a freelance writer who is currently fighting her second battle with breast cancer and has a gorgeously-written blog on the subject, It’s in the Genes, once told me that she gets […]

Blogathon lessons

Today is the last day of the Blogathon. I don’t want to have a boring recap, but I do want to reflect on the biggest lesson I learned this time around. Being forced to blog every day, even though it was self-induced, definitely stifles my creativity. A few times, I’ve written about unimportant and/or uninteresting […]

Rats!

I just logged in to start writing today’s post when I saw that the post I wrote and thought I published yesterday was still in draft mode, meaning I didn’t publish it at all. So, I went ahead and back-dated it to yesterday, since that’s when it was supposed to go live, and am hoping […]

Blog burn-out

Well, not so much burn-out as just plain not having enough time. I’ve thought of subjects galore on which to blog, but have had neither time nor energy to get it done. I have giveaways to hold, stories to relate, input to receive, pearls of wisdom to impart, and I will. Eventually. Some time. Because […]

For fun: Help me design my shirt

OK, so thanks to Matt, the extremely nice owner of Fibers.com, I get to create my very own shirt and do a review and giveaway on my blog after I receive it. The problem is, I’ve collected so many cool/wise/humorous/insightful sayings over time (all to do with writing) that I can’t decide what to put […]
