:: random chatter

Hello friends, you may want to grab yourself a cup of coffee or tea and settle in, because today I feel like sharing. Please bear with me, I try not to go type heavy too often, and I've even edited this down.

First of all, I'm a little disappointed with myself, as I've really been trying to get here to blog on a more regular basis and I've already missed a day this week. I suppose I need to figure out a way to be more methodical about my posting and use the scheduler tool in blogger a little more efficiently. Can you believe I just used that tool for the first time last week. I never even noticed it there before, I can be a little slow sometimes {lol} I should probably be ashamed to admit this after two years of blogging. 

Anyhoo, I knew I wasn't going to be at my computer for a few days last week so I stayed up late and wrote 3 posts the night before I went out of town. Then I scheduled them for the next two days, and let me just say that scheduler rocks. I loved being able to sit back and enjoy a few days off knowing that my blog was still rolling along. What a great tool, I'm so glad I finally figured that out, even if it did take me two years. { rolls her eyes & shakes her head }

Secondly, I have a little writing project going on right now & I'm really starting to stress about it. I in no way consider myself a writer, and the thought of submitting an article for publication is more than a little overwhelming to me. I really want to be charming & insightful, and sounding really intelligent would just be icing on the cake. Ultimately I'll just be me, and hopefully that will get me going in the right direction. I am however open to any suggestions or encouragement in this area.

Thirdly, I've been asked by a good friend to help her decorate her lovely home. Of course this immediately has my wheels going in all kinds of directions. I just love the feelings of inspiration & vision that comes after walking into a space. I've already started working on it in my mind, even though I haven't committed to the job or been officially hired as of yet. Still, it's exciting, and I'm honored that she would ask me. 

So, there you have it, this is what happens when the sun shines and I finally get out of the house for the day. It really was quite lovely here today, and what a nice change from dreary, gloomy & cold. Hope you've had a great day as well.

{peace, love & hugs}

  1. Don't feel bad...I've been blogging for five years now and I have no clue what the blogger date planner thingie is you are talking about. I have never ever even written a post in advance and saved it to post on a certain date either. I post what I sit down and type in for that day. period. But I don't blog for a job and receive no income for the many many hours put into it, if I did I would probably take the time to learn the fancy way of doing it. I've thought about taking sponsors because I do get alot of traffic, but haven't yet. I will never do ads, just don't like the look of them. Good luck with your writing project, I know it will be lovely!

  2. Hi Carrie,
    Well. first I would like to say. I don't even know what you are talking about( shaking my head) Scheduler?? Sounds good to me LOL! I'll have to ck. it out. Second, you'll do fine. I've written some myself. Infact, I have started one this week which is a Q&A. Hint here is just to brainstorm ideas. Take it slow.. don't rush.
    Decorating? That sound right up your ally. Have fun. Take some pics so we can see the finished project. I hope this helps my Friend! Time for tea and to relax :):)
    You will need that scheduler busy Lady. Ha, Ha.

  3. First off, don't kick yourself for not blogging each and every day! As I've heard before, "How can you blog about your life when you have no time to live it"? While it's also my goal to post consistently M-F, there's no rules to break and I relish the one or two days here and there that I can not worry about it. In fact, sometimes I find that when some of my favorite bloggers take some time off, I get even MORE eager to read their next post. Don't worry, you're not letting anyone down :) As far as the writing project goes, do your best, sit back and let a day go by or so, then look at it again. You may come up with your best material randomly in the middle of the night, so it's a good idea to let some time brew before you rush off to submit it. Always smart to have someone proof it too and make sure the flow is professional and just right! You'll do great!!
