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

Stuck in the Overwhelm

I don't know if the impending snowstorm and Polar Vortex that is expected this week, the lack of sunlight or what, but I've been stuck in the overwhelm for a while now.  I know I am not the only one who feels this way. I know most people are experiencing some level of this, I can see it on social media and on the faces

Videos for Cats to Watch!!

Finally!! After months and months of thinking about doing this, I finally made a video for my cat to watch! It seems like a small enough thing - making a video of birds eating bird seed, but it was actually a really big thing to do.  We got Navi, the Bombay cat last December a few months after Dini died. Navi is a 3 to

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

Trying Something New – Blogging

I blog professionally. I manage and write for 20 + blogs and websites and I follow pretty strict rules about SEO. I ALWAYS create posts that are at least 300 words. I always use the proper keyword density along with title tags, alt tag, headings, etc. The problem is, it makes for crappy writing sometimes, or at least less interesting writing.  One of the biggest

Hit the Wall

Last month I wrote more posts than I ever have in one month, this month I've hit the wall. It's not really writer's block, I just don't know what to write about. I guess that is writer's block. Last month was great because of the inauguration and so many blunders going forward. This month, I'm sort of over the whole thing already.  Tempers have sort

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

Flash Fiction

This may or may not go anywhere, but this weekend on Facebook I read about a lot of my blogging buddies from days gone by who miss blogging but never take the time to write anymore (maybe because we spend all our time on Facebook?). I learned that a few blogging friends had given up their blogs and that just made me sad. I don't

No, I’m Not Killing My Blog!

It might seem like it but I've not killed this blog -- yet. I haven't even thought about killing it because, honestly, I forgot all about it. Sure, the idea that I should update passes through my head when I get notification of spam in the comments, but other than that I haven't thought much about it. I planned on writing, a lot, back in
