Check out the new addition to my LinkedIn profile! Yes, I managed to earn enough writing points (by essentially selling enough posts) to get up to Level 5. Wahoo! I originally hoped to make it there in June, but I've continually surpassed my writing goals these first 3 months. This will come to a... Continue Reading →
May 28th – Pattern broken but writing done!
I toyed with pushing myself up this morning to run again. Keep that even day in may pattern going. But..since I did do that track workout yesterday and my toe is not 100% I decided it was OK to skip today and switch things around. I'll still run every other day. The goal is to... Continue Reading →
May 27th – Cranky Toes and Testing
Starting off with the beauty since the rest of the day was pretty lacking in it. Ok, not entirely true, the beach I whizzed by in the car on the way to and from work was pretty darn gorgeous but there was no chance to stop and take a photo. The jacaranda tree is the... Continue Reading →
May 26th – My writing writing writing motivation
But first.... The *plan* today was to lounge as usual during Uppers, then run on the 56 trail avoiding the extreme hills for a change, then shower, then start writing, then eventually head over E & R's place for afternoon working and dinner. That latter bit didn't quite happen, but I did have a really... Continue Reading →
May 25th – Losing Steam
Uh oh - I guess I should be impressed that I maintained my motivation to write in here every day for this long! I was literally in bed before I remembered tonight. Can you blame me? It's Friday. It's been an intense week. I left work after FINALLY training with my co-worker on her tasks... Continue Reading →
May 22 – Beauty in many forms
SongSparrow0 SongSparrow1 This morning I was greeted on my run with the songs you can hear above. Over and over the Song Sparrows in the neighborhood were singin' about the day getting started (and, I am sure, yapping about this crazy human huffin' & puffin' as she jogged past them!) Here's what they look like... Continue Reading →
May 15th – Nada Mucho
In my quest to learn as much as I can about web marketing and copy writing and those new adventurous things I'm trying to do to help me earn more money for things like, oh, cats and their clogged up bladders (ahem) - I watched part 1 of a video series specifically on copy writing....

May 5th – lounge, work, drink, work, eat, work, oooh that moon!
After sufficiently lounging while watching Up with Chris Hayes aka #uppers! and part of Melissa Harris Perry aka #nerdland! I ventured out to drop 15 off for a day of paint ball mayhem with some of his football buddies. With him otherwise occupied I was free to work with Eve on our websites. As usual,...

The merry month of May
So here's a rarity. I'm going to try to write in here every night this month. Sort of like a (gulp) actual diary. I'm sure it will largely be boring and frequently short, but I know I will need to do some non technical writing to keep my brain clear. Having sold more books we... Continue Reading →
What’s that saying about old dogs and new tricks?
Or, more appropriately for me - old cats? In my ongoing pursuit of supplemental income I've mentioned that I've been doing some content writing for a website that I run with my friend Eve. I know you've all checked it out at least once and clicked on an ad or two for me right? What?... Continue Reading →
