Blogging About Blogging

September 17, 2012

Everyone does it once in awhile, right? So here are my thoughts on the state of the blog currently: I don’t intend to be a professional blogger because I already have a career that I’m passionate about. At the same time, blogging is one of my most rewarding and favorite hobbies. It provides an excellent record of my life, has helped me meet friends, keeps my family updated, gives me a sounding board, and is a creative outlet. Although I don’t have the time to spend on it to produce content like professional bloggers do, I still want to do it well – and I think I can do better than I am right now. You guys, I have so…

Due to extenuating circumstances, we don’t have an Internet connection at our house right now other than 3G on our phones. Turns out it’s not all that fast around these parts, either. We haven’t had it in a couple of weeks, and although we’ll be getting it hooked up again, I’m not sure when that will be. Hopefully before the month is out, but maybe not. I hadn’t planned to take a break from my blog, but it’s becoming more difficult to keep up with. I don’t want my family to think my visits are only for the wifi, after all, so it might be quiet around here until we’re connected again. Not that I think anyone would even particularly…

New Computer!

March 18, 2012

Today I said goodbye to my faithful old computer, seen above. It’s lasted me six years and is still chugging along. It got me through nursing school and made it through at least one crashed hard drive. But as you can see, it’s seen better days. That huge black gash in the screen is actually a bend that has gotten bigger over time, and I have been dealing with it for a year. I have been saving up for over a year for a new computer, and now I’m writing you from my brand new MacBook Pro. It’s wonderful to be able to see everything on the screen. Who knew? I’m really proud because this is delayed gratification at its…

Notes For A Lazy Monday

May 30, 2011

Hi friends! I am loving this long weekend, how about you? If you have to work today, I am sincerely sorry. I understand though; I used to have to work every other weekend and most holidays. I love my new schedule! Anyway, here are a few things buzzing around in my head today. *** The Bachelorette Recap & Review My brother is one of the main contributors to the blog ApeDonkey (I have no idea why it’s called that), which features mostly TV reviews. Since it’s only guys writing the blog they tend to feature masculine shows. I asked him jokingly if he was going to recap The Bachelorette this season, and he in all seriousness suggested that I do…

Friday Things: Belated

March 27, 2011

First things first: Congratulations to my brother David and his girlfriend Maggie on their engagement! They made it official on Friday, and I couldn’t be happier. Maggie and I have a lot in common and I’m so happy to have another girl in the family. Add to that the fact that David always said he’d never get married, and it’s just good news all around! Way to tame him, Maggie. ;) *** I’ve installed Google Friend Connect on my blog, and I’d love it if you click through and become a follower. I only have five right now including myself, and that’s just sad. :) Also, coming up in the near future I’ll be launching an ancillary blog dedicated to…
