I’ll remember this good tip.
Most of us start blogs both because we want to write and we want to connect to others — if you weren’t interested in the connection piece, you’d just keep a private diary. But unlike other online communities like Facebook, where we go to connect to friends and family, most of us hope our blogs will reach beyond those immediate circles to the wider world.
While I like to cultivate the secret fantasy that the sheer force of my genius will propel my blog to viral fame, a three-book deal, and a recurring correspondent role on The Daily Show, my realistic blogger self knows that it takes time and effort to build an engaged readership. (Some genius doesn’t hurt.) (Also: Jon Stewart, call me. I’m totally available.)

I should save this for myself.
The last few days this week I have done some of our filing, a little cleaning and played a few piano solos on my keyboard.
I have managed to pray the bad feelings and thoughts out sometimes. I have gotten samples of cosmetics in the mail which I ordered. I like makeup even though I have a lot but don’t put very much on. I am constantly organizing the stuff and find it fun.
I listened to Rihannas CD and sang alone with her, fantasizing that I can sing as great as
her. I went to Walmarts last weekend and even though I picked up quite a few things I decided not to get the CD’s I want, after seeing it was rather hard to find them. Of course I have Norah Jones lastest and can play hers and sing along with her. When I want something different I’ll play Santana.
I went out today to run some errands. I enjoyed the beautiful spring day and seeing people, some smiling, some not, probably thinking I may not be so friendly as I was thinking about them. I usually go to a drugstore as I did today about once a week and stock up on personal stuff and fun stuff for the weekend. Sometimes a movie, CD, a magazine, and I confess treats. Maybe I’ll buy a case of wine coolers or a nifty margarita in a envelope that is already mixed. I didn’t today since I decided a coke or pepsi would do.
Sure I bought things I really need like toothpaste and mouthwash but I had to look at the different displays of makeup and glanced at the organizers. I confess I did buy the Cover Girl/Oil of Olay cream powder. Well we all have our weaknesses.
Have to read these to keep myself together,
This is an example of more than opinionated.
May I save these thoughts,
I think I have alluded to the fact that I dislike cleaning in an earlier post. Today (despite this dislike) I decided to clean my closet (no fun…seriously, none whatsoever). Here’s what I learned. I have A LOT of stuff. A lot of needless, useless stuff, that I have been holding on to because, “I may need it later.” Guess what? Later came…I didn’t need them. So today as I was cleaning, I made a conscious effort to not think to myself, “I may need this later”. Oddly, trying to maintain this frame of thought was harder than you would think. As I struggled to let go of things that I will never use again, I had this thought…Why do we get so attached to STUFF? This need to accumulate possessions is not just a disease of the closet, it is a disease of life.
The latest gadgets and hippest clothes have become…
