I don’t even know where to begin with this blog post, because there is so much running through my mind that I could say.
The day after Memorial Day and for the rest of that week, I became scarce online. Do you know why? It was my wedding anniversary and we went to check out a cascade.
How did we Meet?
Have you ever met anyone online that became a good friend? If you’re a blogger, I’m guessing you probably have.
Blogging is so much better than facebook and twitter, at least for me. I’m not a fan of expressing myself in 140 characters, nor do I care for tons of propaganda on a wall. I like to interact both in person and through some internet venues like this one. I enjoy having people comment and making friends. I especially like having this safe place where we can go without feeling torn apart, but can find things to relate to one another. Continue reading “Making Friends”
Fun With Q’s
Sorry, this isn’t Sheldon Cooper’s “Fun with Flags,” but the following game is better.
I’ve been dealing with a lot of heavy life issues these days, and it’s difficult to come up with light material for the blog. My theme here is to dig deep into the human psyche, but also add a little humor. I’m struggling with the latter right now, as I grieve loved ones.
So, I saw this list of fun questions on facebook and thought I’d play around with them on my blog. It’s the lighter side and a nice break from my heavier last few posts about loss.
I’d love for people to join in. If you’d like, copy them and answer on your blog, or pick your favorite question on this list and answer in the comment section. I’d love to learn more about my blogging friends.
I’m pleased to say that I’ve been writing and editing again. So, this isn’t going to be one of my longer, philosophical posts. Well, maybe . . . because I seem to get easily distracted. I don’t have A.D.D. in regular life, so what the heck happens when I’m writing?
Am I the only author that does this?
I don’t make a lot of trips to the mall (not a shopper), but I had to get something there recently. As I sauntered from Panera Bread to JC Penney, I found myself in the land of zombies!
Happy First Birthday Lori’s Lane
I never thought I’d make it a week, let alone an entire year … and counting!
Confession from a Novice Blogger
Hey, pssst, you regular bloggers out there … why didn’t you tell me this stuff was addicting?
Do blog posts always have to be happy?
I recently heard a story on the news that facebook is causing people to feel depressed. Supposedly, all the fun parties and happy occasions makes people feel like their lives are inadequate.
I have to admit, I’ve noticed this myself, and wondered how everyone could be so happy all the time.
Since fb is an enormously public venue, why would anyone want to air their dirty laundry?
I even recall specific incidents when I left facebook feeling down. Some relatives were getting together without us. Sometimes they’d invite us as an after thought, at the last minute, when we already had plans. In each instance, I’d read all about the fun they had without us.
This leads me to another reason why some people might feel down or depressed. Continue reading “Do blog posts always have to be happy?”
