Why Has My Blog Traffic Dropped So Significantly

I can't be the only one whose blog traffic has dropped so significantly in the last few months, right? Has Google done some new changes to its algorithm? Surely it couldn't be because I only write a new post about once a month. Hell, I've been doing that for years. Is blogging dead? I can't believe that to be true. While I know the original

I Wonder What Would Happen If I…..?

2018 is going to be the year when I ask myself - often - I Wonder What Would Happen If I.....? Like most everyone I make New Year's Resolutions. Also, like most everyone, I usually forget about them by the second week of the year.  Usually my resolutions are about losing weight, finding love and improving my finances. And, to my credit, I made considerable strides

Can’t Muster Anymore Outrage

Between all the many terrorist attacks, stupid things President Trump tweets or what stupid thing a washed up celebrity has said, I just can't muster anymore outrage.  I want to be upset, I do. I mean the fact that Kathy Griffin hired an attorney because she believes the Trumps are going after her and dooming her career - because she hired a photographer to take

Stuff I Haven’t Posted to Facebook

As some of you may know, I'm taking a break from social media. Specifically Facebook because that's where I waste most of my time. It's only been 3 days, but it feels like forever. I miss everyone and yet I'm really happy staying away. I have had to pop back in for work and have regretted it as soon as I even begin to scroll.

Taking a Social Media Break

I'm going to be taking a social media break. Mostly from Facebook since that is where I waste most of my time. I'm doing it for many reasons, the above mentioned wasting time is a big one, but I'm also doing it because it's not fun anymore. Social media has turned into the Mean Girls table in 7th grade and I hated it then and

Already Behind on NaBloPoMo

No one should be surprised that I am already three posts behind on NaBloPoMo. I'll get caught up today, and yeah, this one counts. I love the idea of writing everyday but I also love the idea of writing posts that are actually interesting, entertaining or even outrage producing. I don't like the idea of boring people to death. If you like those kind of

NaBloPoMo 2016

It's November so that means it's time to stop shaving and start blogging. NaBloPoMo 2016 started yesterday and I am all in (so far). This is the first time I've done one of these 30 day deals. I've had many friends over the years take part in NaNoWriMo, and honestly, I think they're nuts. I could probably pull off 50,000 words in a month, but

What’s Happening to Our Nation?

If you're like me, you're probably wondering what's happening to our nation? Yesterday, following the killing of Philando Castile, I was moved to go to the protest at the Governor's mansion in St. Paul. I've wanted to write about this issue for a long time, but have never known what to say. Witnessing the peaceful protest at the Governor's mansion didn't help me much. For
