If you have trouble posting/seeing posts, etc., know that I just switched to the new version of blogger, which is supposedly more reliable, but seeing as how I just got bumped off 5 times and received error messages 3 times when I tried to sign in, my faith is less than rock solid.

Anyway, I know that this blog tends to be just sputters & spurts from my brain, and after reading so many others with such useful information (ie, Magical Musings, Spyscribbler, Romancing the Blog and more) I'm thinking about making some changes - to offer you more substance and involvement.

As I was trying to think of things that I could offer, it came to me that I've had a LOT of incidents in my life that could be considered (depending on your point of view) as magical, miraculous, "meant to be", or just simply amazing coincidents. Whenever I'm feeling less than hopeful, it always helps to think of those incidents -- they give me confidence and faith. So, I thought about making Mondays "Magical Mondays" where I post examples of those times and ask for your magical moments. What do you think?

I also have a lot of experience with Microsoft Office products and HTML, so if anyone would like a "Tool Tips" Tuesday, let me know. :) As a single mom (and formerly displaced homemaker as well as former accountant) I also have a lot of experience with budgets - would a "Thrifty Thursday" appeal to anyone? Since most of us aren't raking in J.K. Rowling's earnings (yet! *g*), we could share living well on a shoestring tips. If not, no biggie. I can come up with something else. :)

"Writerly Wednesdays" could be where we post our current news, excerpts, links to helpful information, publishers/editors/writer's websites and news, as well as book reviews - what do you think about that?

That leaves me with "Free for All Fridays" - anything goes. (You know, the usual brain spurts. :)

I'm going to try to make Saturdays & Sundays the time where I get some actual work done on my WIPs and painting, and try to stay off the Internet. Yeah, we'll see how that goes. :)

On the other hand, if these ideas don't appeal to anyone, I can just keep up the usual prattle. :)


  1. Awww! Well, I wanted to respond to your myspace feed, but now I can't find it! LOLOL ... anyway, I friended you, so maybe it won't be quite as embarrassing with 17 friends, as opposed to 16. LOLOL.

    I love teenagers, I really do.

  2. LOL - I believe that one is archived in October. And hey, I'm up to 50 something now! :) Still not quite up to my daughter's standards (she thinks you're nobody until you have over a thousand - sheesh), but a little better. LOL

    Thanks for thinking of me - we're now officially added to the ranks. :)

  3. Kate, I don't know how you find the time! They're all great ideas. Of course, you knew ahead of time that I like Magical Mondays best. *g*

  4. I had a little suspicion that one might go over well with certain people. :)

    I'm not sure if I will have the time, honestly, but I'm going to try it. I think if nothing else, I'll do the Magical Mondays - it will be uplifting for me, and I hope it will be for others, as well.

  5. I think that's a good idea. It's a nice way to organize your thoughts as well as spark discussions.

    If I weren't so lazy, I'd try something similar. But, I am. Besides, I'm a rambler by nature, forged at birth to not provide useful information to anyone about anything at any given time.

    You and Spyscribbler can take helm of the spreading of knowledge. I'll keep on strewing foolishness for the betterment of no one -- and come here for the good stuff.

  6. LOL, Avery. And hey, I like your blog, so don't talk about my friend that way. :)

    I'm also light years away from the quality of Spyscribbler's blog. I just hope I can put out something that will let people walk away with at least some useful tidbit. If not, well, like they say, "If you can't be a good example, at least serve as a warning." :)


Say what you will...
