But, that's not what I was going to write about... how did I get on Herb's? Oh yes, TedBook. Like everyone else, I have a list of things I would like to try. Who hasn't thought of writing a book or creating a great work of art? Or maybe climbing Everest or going deep sea fishing. Or maybe being a great cook or trying out in a play. Those are all things someone can do if they try... maybe not reach the top or be great, but at least have the experience of doing. That is so easy to say... says the master of procrastination. But, I have a little more time on my hands these days, and finally got tired of thinking about trying to write something. I started to check into people's blogs I would see. I was getting ready. Somewhere I saw a site called Plinky, they do an 'idea a day' to get bloggers motivated ... that got me going on my first piece... My Favorite Summer Memory. That was June 28, 2010... at 10:22a.m. I was a Published Author. I thought that was pretty cool.. my name in print... the name of my blog in print... my thoughts in print! Well, I don't want to get to full here, but I was pretty proud of myself. Especially when the 2 or 3 people who read it thought it was great. Okay, they were my daughters! But, I think I am getting better... at any rate, it is fun and very satisfying. A few days later, I went out to a farm and took photos of bales of hay and a guy on a tractor, and added graphics to my blog. Now I was Big Time.
I wrote 8 Blogs in 6 months in 2010... in 2011 I wrote 1 Blog. This is it...
I THOUGHT THIS WAS AN INTERESTING SUMMARY TO RECEIVE, AS I NEVER KNEW IF ANYONE EVER REALLY SAW MY EFFORTS… other than my family and friends I coerce into viewing. My New Years Resolution is to make the time to do this more often. For those of you who do read TedBook.. Thank You. Thanks to WordPress for a great blogging experience. ~ In Uncategorized on January 2, 2011 at 7:54 am
WordPress had sent a review of my blogging experience, and that was my lead in at the top. I was full of hope for 2011. They didn't send me a review for 2011.
So, on New Year's Eve I got a prompt, not from Plinky, but from Amy Winehouse.
