I have been blogging for few years and web traffic is an elusive thing. So I figured I would experiment. You see, I have a professional blog on which I post once a month. The posts are substantial: informative and thoughtful and all are related to aspects of my trade. I try a broad yet… Continue reading Wrapping up an Experiment
I have a love/hate relationship with decision making. I don't make decisions lightly. I think about it, think some more, ponder... go back and forth... and it seems like I don't know what I want. Oh, I can make decisions in a split second, but the important ones, the ones that impact on my loved… Continue reading Decision Making
This has been a long, busy week. The next two days will be free of exhausting mental work. I need to recharge and will most like do it with a few books and some long night sleep. May will be a month of travels, and say what you will, long drives tire people. As the… Continue reading When Exhaustion Hits
In about a month, I will be driving to my friend's house. Solo driving for 8 hours, in all kinds of traffic, is nothing to reassure me. I have done it before, but this time, I am nervous about it. Must an age thing! I used to go places without a moment of anxiety. I… Continue reading Solo Trip to Disconnect
I am doing a 30-day blogging experiment, which will be over in one week. I have posted every day since the first of April. I wanted to know how much traffic short , fluffy stuff would generate. I haven't shared my posts on social media, only posted on the website to see if they would… Continue reading One Week Away
Only ten days ago, I posted about a fall-like snowfall, today, I have a summer day: 18 C, sunny, and very enjoyable. Thursday would qualify as a heat wave. We are expecting 22 C with a Humidex factor (feels-like) bringing the temperature to a whooping 25 C. Remember... it is still April!
Knowing everything must be a nice place to be in. If you listen, you will figure out a lot of people think there are there. My patience and tolerance are tested. I struggle to keep calm, but below the external veneer, I seethe with a slow burning anger and retorts that are better left unsaid.… Continue reading Wisdom is Quiet and Ignorance is Loud
I think, in our days and age, blogging serves more as a writing exercise than it does as a way to disseminate knowledge, strategies, information, or lifestyles. The only way to improve one's writing skills is to write, and blogging is as good a way to do it as any. The only great issue with… Continue reading Blogging as a Writing Exercise
Although I woke up with a migraine, I was able to prepare a birthday lunch. Homemade pizza, made from scratch - a family secret and recipe actually - was a hit! Then we went out to watch Fate of the Furious. The young man whose birthday we celebrated was pleased!
This week has been a busy one. There is a birthday bash tomorrow and I am looking forward to some down time. No interruption, only myself to take care of... It sounds like a marvellous idea. It seems I am often seeking the peaceful haven of solitude. I am only trying to enjoy my peace.… Continue reading Looking Forward to the Weekend
