Attempting to Improving my Blog & Making it More Consistent in Posting

Good Morning, World. It is still morning in my corner of the world known at Seattle. I know I have done this before and have sometimes not completed what I started as well as completed what I started in regards taking WordPress’s Blogging University free courses. It is my hope that I complete both courses, that I am taking. I signed up for them at the same time but will not be doing the courses at the same time. I am doing this I can make sure I am blogging for thirty days in a row as one course is twenty days while the other course is ten days. I figure if I am consistently blogging everyday, it will keep you the reader more interested in reading my blog. Honestly, I am not sure if it will keep you interested in continuing to reader my blog but it’s worth a shot and at least having an active blog usually tends to keep the readers interested.

In the course’s I will most likely bringing up the wonderful city, I live in; Seattle as well my wonderful cat, Billie Dean. I also may be writing about my wonderful job. I love the work I do and love my job. I feel like if I include everyday things in my assignments from the courses it won’t feel so much like courses. Even though I already have the first assignments, I most likely won’t start them for a few more days.

I also hope to be doing my weekly check in’s on Saturdays as well my weekly plans on Sundays as a way to be consistent with regularly blogging when I don’t have other things to blog about. Having consistency with things in my life including blogging is important to me.

I do not have much more to write about in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader, read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. So, again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Untitled Poem

by Gertie

Life is meant to be a journey;

a journey that is meant to be full of

love and support.

Love and support many people

sadly don’t have.

Some don’t have the

love and support

due to mental health and/or addiction.

That’s where peers come


to give hope

as well as love and support.

Peer Support is key to

ones journey to

Billie Dean the Kat

Billie Dean the Kat is a cat.

A cat that is not only a family member

but my best friend.

Some say cats are only pets or animals but

cats are both family and friends.

Blogging Idea’s & Other Ramblings

Happy Holidays, World!!! I have decided to start doing a couple of free courses WordPress puts on for free that I have done in the past. I have finished both of the courses a couple of times. On that note I have started the courses several times and never finished them. It is my hope that I will be able to not only start the courses but complete them once again. I hope to start them in the next couple of days.

Another idea I have for my blog is to restart my Weekly Plans on Sunday mornings. That’s where I tell you some of my plans for the week ahead. The other idea, I plan to do is do my Weekly Check-Ins on Saturday evenings.

I of course will be blogging about other stuff in the next few weeks as well as into the New Years. I will be talking about the holidays the next couple of weeks. Of course I will continue to talk about my cat Billie Dean and how adorable he is. I will also be blogging about work things as well as volunteer things. And let not forget about discussing about mental health and recovery related stuff.

The other ramblings I have to say is that my cat Billie Dean is be really cute and cuddly today. Billie is such a love but. On another note, Seattle was sunny out today. It was sunny but cold outside. As much as I am not a fan of cold at least it wasn’t freezing outside and it was sunny in Seattle this time of year.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. I really appreciate you the reader for reading my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog I would not be writing my blog. Again, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Happy Holidays and Peace Out, World!!!

Intro to Poetry; Day 9: Landscape

Untitled Poem

by Gertie

Looking out the window all you see

is an on ramp to a major interstate freeway

and tents.

Tents of those who are homeless.

It’s heartbreaking and brings tears to onesĀ 


yet a sense of gratitude arises.

A sense of gratitude for having a roof over ones head.

Living across the street from

a freeway on ramp

isn’t ideal

but the gratitude of having a home is well

worth it.

Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time,

there was a sense of


Once upon a time,

life was simpler.

Once upon a time,

people were much kinder to

each other.

Once a upon time

never was.

It never was because it never existed.
