A Random Wednesday Post

Good Afternoon, World!!! I am struggling at the moment with writing my resignation letter for work. I am not sure why I am struggling with writing it as I have written one before. I am think I am struggling with it because I have some pretty awesome colleagues, a supervisor that is extremely supportive and I do enjoy what I do. The main reason I am resigning is because its an on-call position that is a twelve hour over night shift. I think if I had a regular schedule that the twelve hour night shift wouldn’t be so bad. The job schedule is affecting my mental health and that is not a good thing for me.

As much as I am dreading writing my resignation letter for work, I am looking forward to the free blogging courses I will be taking through WordPress. I signed up for three courses and have taken all three of them before. The courses I signed up for are Finding Everyday Inspiration, which is a twenty day course, Developing Your Eye 1 which is a ten day course and Intro to Poetry which is a ten day course. I am not sure if I am going do them consecutively or at the same time. I’m thinking I will do Finding Everyday Inspiration as I do one of the other courses at the same time and when finished with one I’ll do the other since two of them are ten days each. But at this point in time I am not exactly sure how I am going to work the courses.

I do not have much more to say. I do want to thank you for reading my blog as it is greatly appreciated from my end of things. I hope everyone has a great day. Peace Out, World!!!

Improving My Blogging Skills

Good Morning, World!!! It is five o’clock in the morning in my corner of the world and I still have not been to sleep yet which is extremely frustrating. As frustrating as it is to not be able to sleep due to insomnia, it does have its pros. Granted there are not very many pros to having insomnia or not being able to sleep but there are some. One of those pros to having insomnia is being able to think of ways to be creative and/or do things when you are not able to sleep or even to do during “normal” waking hours. One of those things that I could do and will do is to improve my blogging skills. You may ask how I will do this and the answer is that WordPress offers free courses on blogging. The three that I have chosen, I have done before and really enjoyed participating in them. I am not sure I will being doing the courses concurrently or back to back. Two of the courses are ten days long and on is twenty days long so I could technically do both concurrently and back to back if I do the twenty day course while I do one ten day course and when that one is finished I can do the next ten day course. I guess, I will figure out how I am going in regards to the courses I am going to take.

I guess you are wondering what courses I am going to be taking to improve my blogging skills. I will tell you what courses I will be taking and why I am taking them and what I hope to learn from each course. The twenty day course I am signed up for is Finding Everyday Inspiration” and for this course I hope to not only be inspired to write daily but to be inspired to write about the things I experience in this world or even things that can inspire others.  The other course I am taking is a photography course called “Developing Your Eye.” In this course I hope to learn a different form of art through photography and being show you how I see the world around me with the picture I take and share with you. The third course I signed up for is “Intro to Poetry”  and I hope to learn different way to write a poem and hope that I can create poetry to share with you my reader and the rest of the world.

It is my hope that signing up for these three course that it will help me build some structure in my life. Structure that will become more of a routine for me. Building structure and routine with blogging will ultimately help me with my blog as well as having set times on when I will blog and not have it feel like a chore. There have been times where blogging felt more like a chore than anything and am wanting to have fun with my blog with creating some form of structure with it and think this is a good way to start building the structure I need for my life personally as well as  for my blog. I hope this paragraph makes some sense. If no, I hope you my reader will let me know.

I really don’t have much more to say about this. I just hope you my reader will continue to read what I have to say. I want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things. So thank you for reading my blog. Have a good Tuesday everyone. Peace Out, World!!!

Waking Up To A Furry Friend

Good Morning, World!!! I woke up this morning with Lil Gertie licking me smack dab on my nose. It shocked the hell out of me but it was the cutest thing ever. She is now taking a nap. She was sure active this morning. I am going to be posting some more pictures I took.

Boring Ramblings About Blogging

Good Afternoon, World. As many of you know by now if you read my blog regularly, I attempt to improve my blogging skill a little more as well as attempt to follow through on having a schedule. A schedule on what to write when. I hope that makes sense.

I am planning on starting one of WordPress’s courses that I really enjoy to do. It is in hopes to keep you my reader and/or follower interested in reading my blog. Keeping you interested it something that I hope I can do by taking one of WordPress’s courses.

Another idea is go back to having a regular schedule. Here is hoping that I can follow through on this. The schedule as follows:

Sunday: Weekly Plans – this is where I tell you the plans I have for the week

Monday: Writing Prompts – do something that I won’t have to think of the topic

Tuesday: Not sure yet

Wednesday: Special Guest Junior (1st and 3rd Wed.) and Mama Bear (2nd and 3rd Wed.)

Thursday: Educational – Stuff about Mental Health, it’s treatments and so on

Friday: Fun Fact – Just a much of random facts that are weird or cool

Saturday: Weekly Check-in – This is were I inform you of what I did for the week.

Than you for reading my blog. It is very much appreciated. Peace Out, World!!!

Depression Biting Me in the Ass

Represent a dog biting a man butt.

Good Morning, World!!! My depression is biting me in the fucking ass at the moment. Biting me in the ass severe enough that I am isolating myself from people. People that want to help but right now I am needing my space. Space from the world.

Spending time away from other people has me thinking about blogging. I am thinking about re-doing courses I have done and enjoyed doing that WordPress puts on for free. I am not sure which course I am going to re-do at the moment or if I am going to do multiple at the same time. I just know that when I do a course I feel a sense of accomplishment when I finish an assignment and the course.

Something else that gives me a sense of accomplishment is reading. There is something rewarding when get to the next chapter or find something new out about a character or the plot. Right now I am reading the Liveships Traders Trilogy by Robin Hobb. I am really getting into it as well as the characters.

When it comes to reading I prefer book series as it keeps me more interested in reading especially when I was a child and teenager. I don’t mind stand alone books, I just prefer book series. The characters tend to grow on me and I don’t really like saying goodbye which is why I prefer book series over stand alone books.

Thank you very much for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Everyday Inspiration; Day 15: Take A Cue From Your Reader

Good Afternoon, World!!! Today’s assignment is to take a cue from you my reader. I did this assignment a little differently this time around and found it quite helpful. This time around I used my statistics to take a cue from you my reader. I used them by looking at the stats for the day, week, month and year. I have found that blogging on the regular basis has helped increase my followers interest as well as blogging about different things. I also noticed that having Junior and Mama Bear posting brings people in to read. Another thing I noticed is when I post with pictures I get a lot more traffic. I quickly found out about the photos when I did the Developing Your Eye; One course and plan on taking the second course. Something else I have noticed is the tags I use. That is why I try to switch up my tags yet they appear to be the same ones or similar tags. So, it is my goal to switch up my tags to continue to interest my reader.

I guess what I am trying to say is that taking a cue from you my reader by looking at my stats and what I posted that day or week and so on. If I continue to look at my stats and see what keeps my reader, reading then I know what to write about.

Thank you for reading. It is appreciated. Peace Out, World!!!

Yet, Another Post About Blogging

Good Evening, World!!! As you are well aware of, I’ve been blogging a great deal as of lately. I just hope as I continue that you don’t get bored with what I have to share especially if I post multiple times of day like I have been.

Today, I finished Developing Your Eye 1 course and enjoyed it immensely. I plan on doing the second one at a later time. I learned that I love photography.

Something I will be starting tomorrow is Everyday Inspiration. I’ve done it and complete twice before. I’ve also started it and never finished multiple times. This time I hope to finish it for the third time.

I’m going to tell you my blogging schedule once again or at least the for sure things I will be blogging about, on what days and why!!! Schedule is as follows:

Sunday: Weekly Plans. Mainly to tell you what I have planned for the week. My plans for the week are subject to change as you never know what life might bring.

Monday: Weekly Writing Prompt. This is where I can be creative with my writing.

Tuesday: TBD

Wednesday: Junior will be writing the first and third Wednesdays while Mama Bear will be writing the second and third Wednesdays.

Thursday: Hopefully, something educational.
