Getting Back to Blogging on the Regular Basis

Good Morning, World!!! I have been doing some thinking and am wanting to get back to blogging on the more regular basis. I tend to go weeks and sometimes months without blogging and it really bothers me I am not keeping you my reader more engaged. So, I am going to start back up my “Weekly Check-Ins” this Saturday evening. I also plan on starting my “Weekly Plans” this Sunday morning before my volunteer shift.

Another thing I plan on doing is WordPress’s courses through their Blogging U. I will be doing four courses. Those four course are Finding Your Everyday Inspiration, Intro to Poetry, Developing Your Eye I and Developing Your Eye II. I will start with Finding Your Everyday Inspiration this Sunday and is a twenty day course. Then after I am done with doing Find Your Everyday Inspiration, I will do Intro to Poetry which is a ten day course. After Intro to Poetry I will then do Developing Your Eye I which is a ten day course. After I do, Developing Your Eye I, I will do Developing Your II which is another ten day course. All this will be a total of forty days in a row so I hope it becomes a habit to continue in the New Year as doing all four of these course will going into the New Year.

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 perspective that you the reader, read my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

A Post for My Site Impaired & Blind Readers

Happy Friday. World!!! Today was the last post for Everyday Inspiration. Tomorrow I start one of the photography courses from WordPress’s Blogging University. I just want to let my site impaired and blind readers that I will be posting photos. I will adding captions to the photos and am hopeful that you have computer that can enlarge the photo’s for you. I just wanted to give you heads up because I love taking photo’s and sharing them but I also don’t want you to feel left out if you are unable to view the photos. I hope I don’t hurt any feelings by doing this course.

Everyday Inspiration; Day 16: Mine Your Own Material

I never really understood this particular assignment and never did it and replaced it with another blog but just wanted that right now I wanted WordPress could be more descriptive in how they want certain things written about. I appears that my Everyday Inspiration blog post have been short and to the point or long winded.. Usually they are are more long winded. Only four more post after this particular post is down for Everyday Inspiration. I’m still planning on doing my other course even if work gets in the way.

Everyday Inspiration; Day 13: Play with Word Count

In all honesty, I really didn’t want to do this particular assignment and was planning to bash on the English teachers I had going to high school here in Washington. Despite the lack of English Education I received from the Bellevue School District in high school, I know they, the teachers tried or at least I hope they tied to the best of their abilities.

But that gave me another idea. An idea I actually remembered having to do with my two junior high (special education) teachers in seventh and eighth grades. It was required in California that ALL junior high and middle schoolers had to have some form of paper on word count. It was up to the teacher they would do it. I heard horror stories about kids needing to do 1,000 word essay’s. That freaked me out and it wasn’t even any of my teachers assigning that to me. Any way Special Ed English teachers had us do our word count papers on writing a certain type of poem known as a Haiku. I remember my first haiku I wrote in seventh grade. It was:

Fine I’ll Write It

by Gertie

Being forced to do

a number thing with English

paper does suck shit

I may have not been exactly what my teacher was looking for or principle for that matter, I still got an A+ on it as I did what I was asked to do and did it correctly. Plus it gave the teachers something to laugh about or at least that is what I was told. I did get best poem award for a seventh grader.

Billie Making an Amazing Announcement

Attention all, Billie has an awesome Announcement

This is very short post but WordPress informed Billie and I that today marks blogging twenty two days in a row. I think I’m getting my grove back in a way but Billie wanted to share the announcement with you all.

18 Days in a Row of Blogging

Good Afternoon, World!!! As of today, I have been blogging for eighteen days in a row as of today. Part of it because I started doing Weekly Plans on Sundays once again. My next hope is to do Weekly Check-Ins on Saturdays but I can use the excuse of doing courses WordPress puts on through Blogging University. I started by doing Everyday Inspiration which is a twenty day course. I also signed up for both of the Photography; Developing your eye one and two. Both courses are ten days each which equals twenty days. So that equals to forty days in a row. I also signed up of Intro to Poetry which is also a ten day course. If you add all the courses I’ve signed up for it equals to fifty days in a row. I also signed up for a five day course about commenting and intend to do the course in the middle the courses I am currently taking and/or signed up for.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciative from my end of things that you the reader, read my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Everyday Inspiration; Day 7: Let Social Media Inspirer You

Being inspired by social media is a catch twenty-two. For example I’m on WordPress to blog and it is inspiring as I get to read peoples stories of inspiration and I don’t think I have seen and dram on WordPress. To me that is a good thing

Another good thing about another Social Media site I am on is LinkedIn as it is a professional social media site. I’m on it to make sure my name is out there just in case I need a new job like I did recently dud to being laid off. LinkedIn helped me get noticed for my last two jobs as well as my new job that I will be start this Monday. I’m getting excited and anxious about it which is normal.

As far as Facebook book goes, it’s full of drama. I’m mainly on it to see some old friends. Oh I can’t forget about seeing the animals and pets people share on their Facebook. I think the pets, animals and friends is the why I stay on Facebook because there is way too much drama on it.

Update About Last Night & Other Random Thoughts

Good Morning, World!!! My last post was quite concerning if you read it you know there were some gunshots and sadly two people were shot. Thankfully, they are going to survive. I know it scared the shit out of many people including myself and my cat.

Now on to my random thoughts. Well maybe not so random. I’m not sure if I mentioned that my mom has stage three lung cancer. My mom doesn’t appear to worried about it but the rest of the family including myself is worried. Well, all except my brother because nobody has heard or seen him since my mom got diagnosed with lung cancer. I’m worried about both my mom and my brother. It’s unheard of that he hasn’t contacted anyone especially my mom since he is a mama’s boy.

Now on to the real random thoughts that I am having. If you read my blog on the regular basis or even if this is your first time reading my blog you may have noticed I have advertisements. I have advertisements to make money. The only way I get paid is if people click on them. Granted it might be a cent or two or maybe three per click but it adds up. Sadly, WordPress doesn’t pay you till you hit at least one hundred dollars. So if you could kindly click on one advertisement, whenever you read my blog it would be greatly appreciated.

On to more random thoughts, my neighbors a screaming at each other again. Well, one is screaming and the other is just trying to get to their apartment. The one neighbor screaming just needs different type of housing. Personally, the neighbor that is screaming needs to be in supportive housing where there are staff there 24/7 if someone is in need of talking to someone or in crisis. This neighbor appears to be in crisis quite often.

I should get going as my cat Billie Dean is wanting some attention. Oh how I love my cat, Billie. Billie is such a lap cat and loves all the attention he can get. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Frustration with WordPress & My Television

Hello, World!!! Right now I am frustrated with WordPress and my television. I am frustrated with WordPress because it appears they changed things around. I am frustrated with my television because a good portion of my channels aren’t working or choosing to not be on. I don’t have cable so i use anta which usually works fine. Now I have to pay for Hulu to watch live television. Wish I didn’t have to do that but if I want to keep up on the latest news its the best bet. I do subscribe to Netflix and wish they had live television.

On the plus side I’ve been cuddling with my cat while reading. I am really enjoying the book that I am reading. In fact it’s the first book of a trio of books. I love books that are a serious of books.

I do not have much more to say in this particular 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. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World

Too Many Thoughts Running Through My Mind

Good Afternoon, World from Seattle, Washington. Right now I have way too many thoughts running through my mind. I have been having many ups and downs this past week.

First I have my last day at my previous job due to being laid off. Then I have a job interview and two days later find out I got the job. I am taking the job and start at the end of the month. On that note I don’t think it’s the best job for me but it is something in my career of choice.

The day after I found out I got the job, I found out my mom has lung and they are still doing test regarding it including test on her memory loss. I’m hoping it’s not a brain tumor but will find out when an MRI and other test are done. But I’ve already told you this.

It just appears that when things get a bit overwhelming I tend to sign up for free courses WordPress does. I usually sign up for two or three of them and start one and sadly don’t finish them. Well, I signed up for four of them and it is my hope with what’s going with my mom’s health and me starting a new job that I actually start and finish them. I guess it’s a goal to help me get through both the good and bad stress I’ve been dealing with.

Speaking of stress, my cat, Billie Dean, has been helping me a great deal with the stress I have been dealing with. I love my cat, Billie so much. The thing I don’t understand is how Billie can love me so unconditionally. Hell, any pet has unconditional love.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated on my end that you the reader, read my blog. In fact if it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. So, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart once again for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!
