all about words / Anonymity / Balance / Blogging / family history / Gratitude / privacy / sharing

I started this blog about ten years ago with the idea it would be an avenue for me to write regularly. At times I DO write regularly however it often has quiet spells where I have nothing to much to say. Do you ever get asked “What is blogging anyway?” I try to answer it but I can’t find adequate words to describe the experience. Last year I was leading a philosophy discussion group so […]

Blogging / Meaning of life and that stuff / Photography / pressure to perform / Study / technology

This is my 1000th post! It has taken me a seven years to get here. It has become part of my day-to-day life. I don’t write all that often now but love to read other bloggers’ adventures and do the Photo Challenge most weeks.

Blogging / Writing

I don’t seem to write much these days. Not only that, but I don’t get ideas like I used to. I want to hang in and write some more. I fear if I leave it too long, writing could become one of the things I used to do. I’ve become a little shy in publishing so I am making the effort today. My tagline used to say, “If you want to write, just write!”. OK […]

Ways of learning …

Blogging / Wisdom too late / WordPress

My preferred learning style is to get my hands dirty and experiment. Ask me to do most things and I will dive straight in and have a try. Learning how to use my WordPress blog is a typical example. Recently I am helping a friend with her website and thought it would be useful to have some sort of manual to put some structure into the process. There are HEAPS of manuals, videos, websites etc […]
