Little Things

Posted by: | Comments (1)

It’s the little things I fear I’ll forget. The moments that aren’t great milestones or significant pieces of a larger picture. The moments I can’t add as part of a longer story. The ones that don’t need more words to explain and so I don’t give them any. Like watching her dance in front of […]

When the Words Get Away

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Is it really possible that I have not posted for the entire month of February and almost half of March? (My one February post was really written in January.) I knew I had gotten away from blogging regularly AGAIN, but really? More than a month?  So. Not. Cool. Well, a list of excuses is not […]

Productivity

Posted by: | Comments (4)

In my last post, I mentioned how I wanted 2011 to be a year of productivity for me. Well, it turns out it’s difficult to be productive when one spends all day with a toddler who incessantly pleads, “Play with me, Mommy!” No, no, not making excuses here. You see, this is where 2011 is […]

Help A Blogger Out

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Hi there, Readers! We interrupt this blog for a few random, um, let’s call them requests. Now I know I have a handful of readers out there. Google Analytics tells me so. Granted, most of you are my family and friends and people my mother tells to read. No matter who you are, how you […]

Day 30

Posted by: | Comments (6)

So here it is: Day 30. I made it. I managed to write thirty posts in thirty days. And I’m not quite sure how I am feeling about that. Writing every day is hard. I knew it would be. I knew there would be days I would not feel like writing, and boy were there […]

Jumping in the Deep End

Posted by: | Comments (1)

When I go swimming, I love to just jump right in. It took me some time to get to that conclusion, but over the years, I’ve learned that wading slowly is not for me. Letting the cold water creep up your body and take your breath away with each step? No thanks. Sure, it takes […]

Procrastination

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Dear Kelly, When are you going to learn? Seriously. Procrastination is NEVER. A. GOOD. THING. You didn’t learn after the middle school science project. You didn’t learn after the high school term paper. You didn’t learn after all those college essays. Ah, hell, you didn’t even learn when you were the teacher assigning those things– […]

A Little Poem About Blogging

Posted by: | Comments (0)

MY PLAYGROUND My blog is my playground for simple joy Where ideas wrestle on the jungle gym And thoughts seesaw and phrases spin. Words swing to and fro, ever higher, Waiting to jump with cautious care, To be set free in the open air. So off they go, these words of mine, Soar and land, […]

Quality vs. Quantity

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Ah, the age old dilemma (well, at least one that’s been around as long as blogging)– is it better to write good blog posts or write regular blog posts? Yes, of course the ideal is to write good blog posts regularly but there are some of us (ahem) who are still working on that. So […]

Yes, I know I need to tweet. My friends keep telling me. Everybody’s doing it, you know. I do have a Twitter account but don’t really use it.  I have more to learn about it, but, then again, I can say that about almost everything in life. But if I came away from BlogHer with […]
