This is something I've never really thought about before. I know why I like writing and I know what I like about other author's writing, but I've never really considered what I like most about my own writing. Photo by Florian Klauer on Unsplash I suppose I like that my writing tends to be very… Continue reading Bloganuary #7: What do you like most about your writing?
WordPress is doing a "Bloganuary" challenge/promotion where they are sending out prompts or questions to write about each day. I am going to commit myself to writing a post for each one (or in this case the first 3)....even if I'm a little behind to start it off. It's just like me to be late… Continue reading Bloganuary Posts #1-3
In my last blog post I talked about looking back on my goals for this year and reflecting on what I have accomplished. This process helps me to understand what I'd like to focus on in the coming year. We all know the past two years have been crazy, full of ups and downs, and… Continue reading How I Set My Yearly Goals
I've made it to week 5! Eventually I'll actually start posting on Sundays again, like I'm supposed to! Although I'm still dealing with health issues and haven't been able to journal/plan every day, I have still managed to keep up with tasks scheduled weekly and have been checking my calendar each day. Some days I… Continue reading Getting My Sh*t Together – Week 5: Sh*t’s Getting Real
**This update is five days late....so it's going to be covering Week THREE and FOUR.** There's been a slight hold-up, if you will, on the "Getting My Sh*t Together" Challenge. For the past five months, I've been dealing with some health issues off and on -- but mostly on. In about mid-December and through the… Continue reading Getting My Sh*t Together Challenge – Week 3/4 Update
Two weeks down! I haven’t had a mental breakdown – yet – and I’ve been getting lots done. This week was much…lazier than the previous week. The freezing cold weather and snow, plus Landon being home for Martin Luther King Jr. Day and two snow days sort of messed up the flow I had going… Continue reading Getting My Sh*t Together – Week Two Check-In: No Mental Breakdown Yet!
So, it’s only been a week. And good habits are not established in just a week. There is still a good possibility that after doing this for a few weeks -- or even a few months to be honest -- I will lose my excitement over planning and organizing and fall off the “get my sh*t together” wagon. I don’t want to create a false sense of accomplishment for completing a week of my challenge, but I’m still pretty optimistic I’ll be able to succeed. It also helps that my daily affirmation for the month is “I believe in myself and my ability to succeed.”
I’m a hot mess. I have been for most of my life. I try to have my sh*t together and I’m good at making it look like I do – most of the time – but in all reality, I am struggling every day to keep up with everything going on in my life and… Continue reading Finally Getting My Sh*t Together – A Year Long Blog Series
I've been busy lately. I started taking a few online classes that I am really excited about. I never realized how many amazing, free learning opportunities there were on the Internet until I resigned from my teaching position and had to start searching for a new career! First, I learned about EdX.org. It features legitimate… Continue reading How To Learn More Online
I am finally getting back into my blogging, my writing, my craft. And I couldn't be more happy about it. I've been gone much too long and am ready to share my experiences and ideas with the world once again. I've changed the format of my blog and will begin to write about my journey… Continue reading The Journey Forth
