My State of the Blog post, 2013

I looked at my Posts list this morning, and noted that I have no categories, and very few tags.  Most of this is my own fault — I have been distracted by the computer situation lately.  But I checked my category list, and I did in fact create a category Songs I Am Listening to Right Now.  I think I must have forgotten to save something.  I will reserve some of my attention to getting back to these additions.

The computer madness is partially resolved — I started the laptop, and while it took around a minute holding the start button, it did eventually get going again.  I am not going to shut it off from now on — just let it sleep when I’m not actively using it.  Concerning ny tablet, and editing text, I have figured it out — regardless of where I place my cursor, I must first highlight the entire text with a little orange box.  Annoying, but doable, and I know that in a couple of weeks I won’t even notice.

I am going to start a new process for posting — I will write my posts on the tablet, which I can use anywhere, but I will edit them on the Apple.  I love the portability of the tablet, and with the keyboard added on, this becomes a very nice writing tool.

I am feeling the itch to write poetry again.  I attribute this to the warming, (ever so slightly,) weather.  The sun continues to sit higher in the sky each day; my overall demeanor improves right along with it.  I wore earrings three days in a row this week — a step in my daily prep I’ve ignored for years.  I recall the bright, chunky jewelry I wore in the ’80s, back when plastic was cool.  I will maintain this practice now — my ears had almost grown shut, and I don’t want to have to deal with that again.

I know I have other news from my bloggy world, but I can’t think of anything now, except that my enthusiasm for writing is beginning to grow again.  Hopefully, by November, I’ll be up to another 50,000 for NaNoWriMo.

  1. State of the Blog Post – brilliant! Don’t be surprised if you start a trend.

    I always thought the State of the Union had to be presented on January 20th but I guess the President was busy that day 🙂

    I had a look at Wikipedia and the history of the SotU is fascinating.

I love to read your thoughts...
