It is had to believe that I am doing what I can do tp leep my blog up today. It is my goal for 2022 to blog an average of three days a week. So far this is my 19th blog post in a matter of 17 days. I do have other goals that I want to accomplish this year and once of these days I will share them with you.
I feel like that if I blog an average of three times a week, I able to keep you my reader interested in continuing to read my blog. I realize there might be times I won’t be able to write a blog a single week which is why I say and average of tree times a week because some weeks I will writer more than three times a week while other weeks I won’t write that week which is okay just as long as it comes to an average of three times a week.
Another reason why I want to make it goal to blog an average of three times a week is to help those who don’t have a mental health diagnosis that people who do have one can live productive lives and able to work as well as pay taxes like “normal” people to. Anther reason why is to help those who struggle with a mental health diagnosis that recovery is possible and that hop is possible.
I do not have much more to discuss in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my post. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you do read my blog. If it was not for you the reader of my blog reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog;. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Afternoon, World!!! It is Christmas Eve in my corner of the world and am spending with my dad’s side of the family at the moment. I am doing some WordPress courses to help keep you the readers interested in continuing to follow and/or read my blog.
I started writing my blog for a couple of things. The first reason is to educate people who don’t struggle with a mental health challenge that those of us who do struggle with one that we can be productive members of society. It may not look the same to those who don’t struggle. So, I hope I am able to educate those without a mental health challenge that people like me can prove you that we are productive members of society and hope to lessen the stigma that goes with having a mental health challenge. I also write to give hope to those who struggle with mental health challenges that there is hope and recovery is possible.
Thank you for reading my blog and hope you all continue to ready my blog. I will blog again tomorrow so I will see you tomorrow. Peace out, world!!!
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!!!
I am not a big fan of social media even though I do have a Facebook account, a Twitter account and a LinkedIn account for my blog Gerties Journey. I also have a Facebook account for myself under my given name. Anyway, it is challenging to find some form of inspiration from any type of social media unless I feel up to having arguments with other people and having a butt load of unwanted emotions.
It has been my experience that people on Facebook and Twitter like to argue with each other. When it comes to LinkedIn at least people are civil with each other. Other social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram, I have know clue. As far as blogging here on WordPress the arguing is pretty minimal if there is any at all.
I guess what I am saying is social media isn’t very inspiring to talk about or at least to get inspired by to be able to write about. It saddens me as I wish I could get some form of inspiration that didn’t bring up negative or undesired emotions.
Good Afternoon, World!!! Today is one of my days I work from home as well as a late start work day. Late start work day means I start work at twelve noon and get off work at eight in the evening. It’s cool that I am able to do this for two of my five shifts at work. In fact that other day I have this shift is on Mondays. So, I get to sleep in on Mondays and Tuesdays which is awesome.
I don’t have much to do work wise as the staff meeting was cancelled and I only have once client scheduled today. That client is scheduled for later this afternoon. I am all caught up on my paperwork and am just waiting for various places such as Social Security and housing programs to call me back regarding clients. So I am playing the waiting game as well as the phone tag game. Not the most fun part of the job but hey at least I have a job that I enjoy and love most of the time.
Since I have a whole lot of nothing going on regarding work, I have been thinking about blogging and how I can make sure I am more consistent with blogging. I want to blog on the more regular basis. That means making sure I start doing my weekly check-ins on Saturday evenings and my weekly plans on Sunday mornings. That way I am not leaving you my reader hanging and I am at least keeping you somewhat interested in continuing you read my blog.
Another way I am thinking about keeping you my reader my engaged is doing one of the free courses that WordPress puts on to help people improve their blogging skills. Not only do I think it helps with improving blogging skills, I think it help me as a blogger to keep you my reader engaged and interested in my blog.
I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post as my cat, Billie Dean, is wanting some attention. I would love to give Billie some attention so I am going to end 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 read my blog as if it weren’t for you reading, I wouldn’t be writing on my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Afternoon, World!!! I have been thinking a great deal about blogging on the more regular basis. If you been reading my blog regularly, you are aware that I attempt to post Weekly Plans every Sunday morning as well as post Weekly Check-Ins every Saturday evening. I do this in attempt to keep you my reader interested in reading my blog. On that note, I want not only improve my blogging skills but switch things up by enrolling in four of WordPress’s free courses. The courses I signed up for are; Intro to Poetry, Finding Everyday Inspiration, Developing Your Eye I and Developing Your Eye II.
I signed up for these course just over a week ago. In fact I already started the courses and have been participating however I have scheduled the post from the courses. I am scheduling them just in case a get a some form of writers block or a creative block or in the case of the photography course can’t find the right shot or picture. I know it seems weird to schedule post but when it comes to something like this then I think it is okay. I don’t normally schedule my post which is why it seems weird o me. It will fifty days in a row of post from the four courses I am taking. In fact the scheduled posting starts tomorrow March 1st. Don’t worry I will still be doing normal post without scheduling and post immediately.
Another reason why I am choosing to do the four course through WordPress is because, I have found with blogging that it helps with my mental health. I wasn’t expecting that it would help with my mental health or my recovery but it has. In fact I am beyond grateful that blogging has helped with my recovery.
I do not have much more to discuss 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 do read my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope everyone enjoys the rest of your Sunday. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Evening, World!!! Today has been an okay day. My emotions have been up and down today. I owe the up and down emotions due to the lack of sleep and the recent trauma I experienced. Overall, I think I am doing okay with dealing with the many emotions I am feeling, despite not wanting to feel some of them.
One of the ways that helped me deal with my emotions is going in and volunteering at PAWS Cat City. It is officially kitten season and am grateful to get some kitten time in. As much as I love kittens and would really want one, I realize as I volunteer at PAWS Cat City, why having a kitten is not conducive for me to have one at the moment. Mainly because they are a great deal of work and I do not have time to invest in a kitten right now. Plus, I have Billie Dean and not sure how he would interact with a kitten. Anyway, two kittens and a senior kitty got adopted during my volunteer shift. Adoptions are my favorite part of volunteering at PAWS Cat City. Watching the cats get a furrever home with smiling and happy humans is an awesome feeling.
Every time I come home from volunteering at PAW Cat City, Billie Dean, my cat is attached to me at the ankle if I am walking around my apartment or to my lap if I am sitting. I don’t think he is jealous of me being with other cats, I just think he has some anxiety he will be replaced or have to go back to an animal shelter. There is no way in hell he will be replaced and the only way he will go back to an animal shelter is if I am dead. I don’t plan on dying anytime soon. I love Billie so much and I am beyond grateful to have him in my life.
Something I forgot to tell you in a posted I posted yesterday is that I was taking a course through WordPress regarding commenting on people blogs. It is a five day course and tomorrow (Wednesday) is my last day. I really enjoy the course and being able to communicate with other bloggers. I really enjoy the blogging community. I love the blogging community because we have mad respect for each other and have very little drama which I greatly appreciate.
I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I just want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Morning, World!!! I have been attempting to blog more on the regular basis. One of the ways I had planned on doing this was taking a couple of WordPress’s free courses. I started out with doing their Intro to Poetry but kind of stopped doing it for various reasons and I plan on starting it back up again or at least where I left off. I was also going to take a course on photography to help me blog more often and still plan on doing it after I finish the Intro to Poetry course. My plan with the poetry and photography courses through WordPress is to help keep you, my reader, more interested in reading my blog.
Another way I plan to blog more often is something I have done in the past and it appeared to work. That is every Sunday to blog about my weekly plans. Just so you have an idea of what an average week is like for me. Somethings else I plan on doing is my weekly check-ins on Saturdays. Just to tell you how my week went. I guess if I do both of these things it might help me blog more regularly. I hope that I can follow through with this just like I hope to follow through with the WordPress courses.
I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope you all have a great Sunday. I also hope you all have an awesome week ahead of you. You guys are all awesome in my book. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Afternoon, World!!! I just want to update on life in the last twenty-four hours. First lets start off with my job interview yesterday. Overall, I think it went quite well. There were many awkward moments in the interview but went well. If I get the job, I will like the schedule for the most part. I will have to change some things with my volunteer job but it is workable. Even though the interview went well, I am not holding my breath that I will get the job. I just do not want to get my hopes up too high.
Now back to a couple of hours ago. I took my cat, Billie Dean, into the vet. Don’t worry Billie is just fine and dandy. He went to the vet to get his nails trimmed. It took longer than usual because the vet techs and vet wanted some cuddle time with Billie. The vet even took two dollars off the bill for letting her and her vet techs have cuddle time with my “love bug.” I cannot deny that Billie is a “love bug.”
Now on to a previous post in the last few days about me taking a couple of courses WordPress does for free. I signed up for the courses a couple of days ago and have assignments that I will start on tonight. I will be posting those assignments starting tomorrow. The courses I am taking our: Writing: Intro to Poetry and Photography: Developing Your Eye I. I have done both of these course before and loved them. So I am doing them again. Plus, I feel like if I do these courses again they will be of help to me to blog on the more regular basis. I want to blog on the regular basis to keep you my followers and regular readers engaged.
I do not have much more to discuss in this particular blog post. I want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope everyone has a great rest of your Thursday. Peace Out, World!!!
Hello, World!!! It is the middle of the night and I am unable to sleep once again. I wish I knew why I am unable to sleep but I realize that trying to figure it out will just frustrate the hell out of me.
As I sit here at my laptop, sleepless in Seattle once again, I am trying to figure out ways to blog on the regular basis. One thing that came to mind is to do free courses that WordPress does. I have decided to do their Writing: Intro to Poetry course as well as their Photography: Developing Your Eye 1 course. I figure if I do the courses it will help me get more in a groove of blogging on the regular basis. I know some people set up schedules and I have tried that which is something I will try again with the help of the WordPress courses I take.
I have officially signed up for the courses but I personally most likely won’t start them for a couple days. I am planning to do this so I can have time to work on the assignments. Of course when I work on the assignments, I hope to include my cat, Billie Dean in a couple of them. Most people love cats and hope including my cat, Billie will have new people reading my blog. I also want to incorporate Billie because, I love Billie and he is apart of my family.
I have also thought about other ways to blog on the regular basis. One of those ways is to discuss topics, you my reader are interested in. So, I guess I am asking you to do is comment on this post on what you would like me to discuss. I realize that my request appears to be a wee bit odd but I hope you will comment on this post on what you would like me to discuss.
I do not have much more to discuss. I want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things for reading my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog even though it is not interesting most of the time. I hope everyone has a great Tuesday ahead of them. Yes, I realize Alaska and Hawaii are still in Monday as I write this and hope they too have a great Tuesday ahead of them. Peace Out, World!!!
