blogging burnout / Uncategorized

I am not sure how long I have been blogging but it goes back a few years. I am at a turning point with it and not sure which way to turn. I still enjoy being part of the blogging ‘family’ but feel like I would like to tear mine up and start afresh.

I have agreed to share the knowledge I have gained over six years blogging with some fellow community members through our local group of the University of the Third Age (U3A).

There are HEAPS of manuals, videos, websites etc […]

Journal Blog / Social media / Writing

You’ve been granted magical engineering skills, but you can only use them to build one gadget or machine. What do you build? I would build a widget for my blog so that no matter what I wrote about, the widget would give a sprinkle or two of magic dust and my blog will become viral. It will be on Facebook and even in the news.I would also be Freshly Pressed 🙂 on WordPress. Wow, wouldn’t […]
