Looking back…

I was going through my feedly looking at the various blogs I read and one of them was having their blogaversary… Or however the hell you spell it. And I got to thinking, how old is my blog?

Turns out I started this thingie in September of 2009. Crap, how time flies. 0.0

So, I guess I should celebrate or something when the blog officially turns 5 years old. What does one do for such things?

NaBloPoMo Prompt #6

Tell us what you’ve learned so far about daily blogging.

I’m not entirely sure. The first thing I noticed was my traffic increased. That’s what they tell you in blogging 101: regular posts mean regular readers. I have trouble coming up with meaningful (at least to me) things to post on a daily basis that won’t get me fired or sued for libel. πŸ˜‰ But a healthy mix of my life and my writing seem to do the trick.

NaBloPoMo November 2013

Brace yourselves… NaNo is coming…

Do you hear that? That is the sound of millions of writers revving their creative engines for the novel blitz of the year. As I am a writer with too many balls in the air as is, I will not be participating. But I will be doing NaNoPloMoΒ over at BlogHer instead because anyone who reads this blog knows I have issues with consistent posting. 9_9 Hopefully this will jog me to post about whatever fool thing crosses my mind rather than thinking “Eh, nobody’s interested in that.”

FYI, I will only be doing this on WordPress as you can only apply one blog to the list (I’m assuming).

So, is anyone else doing NaBloPoMo? Or will you be going for broke writing the next great American novel? πŸ˜‰

2013 goals

I had to think a lot about what I wanted from this year. Instead of resolutions, I have goals I would like to meet:

1: To recover from my divorce and be a happier and better person.

2: To write 4 pages every day.

3: Update the blog more often.

4: I’m trying the 100 Books in a Year challenge again.

 

There’s no way I’m gonna let the bad things that have happened to me get me down. I have to remember it’s not my fault, these things happen, and to move on with my head high.

Here’s to a good 2013. It better be good; I think I’m owed. T_T

 

 

Pagan Blog Project – β€œD” for “Dreams”

I don’t often remember my dreams but when I do, they are DOOSIES. Most of the time, they are working through the stress of the day. If I have a difficult time at work, my dreams sort out the stress. But every once in awhile, they are to prepare me.

Before my mother started to get very sick, I dreamed of my Granny. It may sound kooky but I really believe she came to me to prepare me for what was coming. She told me to be strong and enjoy the happy times because life ends so fast… And of course, Granny was right; a lesson I need to relearn now in dealing with both of their deaths. I need to learn to remember the good times with them and let some of my anger go.

I keep a written journal where I write my dreams down when they are like this (because dreams where I’m shopping and can’t decide what I want or need are pretty self explanatory). Every so often I get an idea for a story from my dreams, as well. I record whatever I can remember and build upon them at a later date.

I also dream in color; which is supposed to mean something fantastic.

Either way, I try to save them all and learn the lessons they are trying to teach me.
