Happy Birthday to Me!

Happy birthday to me! I am 50+ years young. It’s not that I’m ashamed of my age, but I probably shouldn’t give away my DOB here. I’m actually proud how long I’ve lasted; a lot of chronically depressed people don’t make it this far. This is the first birthday I can recall not being depressed. … Continue reading

Seven Years Ago…

Seven years ago I started this blog. That’s the longest I’ve stuck with anything. I had hoped to monetize it to support my animal rescue habit. Things didn’t quite work out that way. Instead I found an avenue of expression that I enjoyed and was pretty good at, if I do say so myself. The best … Continue reading

I have 5000 Online Friends. How Can I Buy More?

This morning I checked Twitter and saw I had a new follower.

These days, it’s all about the numbers. Even at … Continue reading

NaNoWriMo With a Twist of Lemon

Have you noticed anything different about me? Uh, no, I did NOT change my hairstyle. I’ve been writing every day! YAY! In honor of National Novel Writing Month, I decided I would, in true American style, steal the event and reshape it to meet my deepest desires. And that desire is to get my blog back … Continue reading

Want Some Free Publicity From Me? This is What it Takes.

I’ve told you before that I get a lot of emails from people wanting me to promote their product for free. Some do more than just send a mass email; they send an email just to me, then in a day or two send a follow-up email just to be sure I got their first … Continue reading
