Hello again. I have missed you all. What have you been up to?
Personally, I have been getting used to this whole “Grandma” gig. He has hit that fun toddler stage and is FREAKIN adorable!!! I taught him that song “If all the Raindrops were candy bars and milkshakes” and now every time I see him he sticks his tongue out and does the “ah ah” part of the song!! Makes me laugh.
I have written, illustrated and published one of my Barney books. There is a kindle version out, but the print version has not worked out well. There has been one issue after another so currently I am revising it to resubmit it, along with the next book sometime soon. I hope.
This may give me enough of a push to keep working on it and get it done. No more playing around!
This past week was going to be my time to do all that. And several other things. Along with restarting this and another blog.
I am a Grandma now. I only have 4 kids in the house and 3 of them are schooling online. I should have plenty of time right??
Well, maybe not really. Especially since I love to do this thing. It goes like this; How long can I wait to do a project or something before it gets to be forgotten?
Sounds like Procrastination doesn’t it??
It is. And it’s not my friend.
Since I have quit blogging, I have really not written much of anything. I haven’t had that little niggling about writing a blog post for my readers so I haven’t.
Not going to get better that way am I?
So here I am, with a paid site so that maybe I could make a little money as I go along. Hoping to have some good content for you all to read. Maybe gain a few hundred more followers/friends??
It could happen.
According to Pinterest, it does if I “Follow 25 Simple Steps”, or “Do These 15 Things and You Will Make $10,000 Your First Month Blogging”!!
Maybe. I am not good at following directions, how about you?? I need to discipline myself to do some of that.
I suppose they are worth trying, so I have them pinned to my “Blog Ideas” board. If you want, you can go and check out my Pinterest boards, Horses Dirt and Motherhood, and go to my “Blog Ideas” board. I have lots of ideas pinned and someday I will go back and use them!!
(True confessions; I have a new ipad, which I absolutely LOVE… But there are some things I haven’t been able to figure out. Like how to copy and paste my Pinterest address to form a link to the previous paragraph. Its now an app. One of these days I will take the classes that Apple has offered and learn more.)
If you have any ideas you have tried, comment. I would love to hear them!
Would any of you want to join me in improving our writing and blogging and encouraging each other to get our goals met? I would love to hear from you especially!! I am not sure what that would look like, but maybe set some goals and keep each other accountable to them? Thoughts???
And a Happy New Year!
PS. Still dealing in Oils. If you would like to learn more, comment and we can talk. In the meantime, here is a picture of this months Essential Rewards Freebies:
