My New Schedule for Blogging

I am going to attempt to modify the overly ambitious blogging calendar I made back in February.

Monday: Stays the same: the day to Re Blog at least one other blog post from another blogger

Thursday: Pictures and Words: Post at least one image and/or sentence.

I eliminate the days of reading other blogs and commenting because Monday I can do that while searching for interesting posts to “repost”.

Let’s see how this new experiment works out! I have noticed that I love “reblogging”, which I’m frustrated to see still isn’t considered a real word, at least not by spell check on WordPress. Strange, as WordPress may have invented the word! I just searched on the internet and I’m still not sure if reblog is just a word in the Urban Dictionary or not. Anyway, reblogging has definitely saved my blog from big gaps of nothingness; I also love to showcase great writers who blog about important topics and express things so articulately. Reblogging is one of the best ways to show other bloggers that you are paying attention to them and to other bloggers besides them. It may even help other bloggers to gain more followers…

Anyway here’s to Monday today. I’ve reblogged two posts and written two posts!

“One of these days, I’m gonna get organiz-ized…”

Here is the post I found from 2014 that relates semi relevantly to my previous post about getting organizized…

So said Robert DeNiro in Taxi Driver, during an excruciating attempt to sustain an onscreen conversation. But discomfort surrounding the word ‘organized’ isn’t limited to an awkward date with social activist Travis Bickle. In fact, it’s an example of a long-running misconception about British versus American English.

A common complaint of wannabe pedants is that the use of the suffix -ize is WRONG because IT IS AMERICAN. But that’s not strictly accurate. In fact, using ‘organize’ in British English is perfectly acceptable. The Oxford English Dictionary, for starters, lists the -ize form as the primary version, as do all major UK dictionaries.

robert_deniro_waiter Robert DeNiro’s waiter? Just out of shot.

While British and American English have been subject to vastly differing developmental factors, they’re still regional versions of the same language. So let’s clear things up – British English does indeed use -ise. But it also uses…

20 Creative Quotes on Giving and Gratitude | creativity in motion

The Thanksgiving holiday will soon be here, which encourages me to reflect on & share this collection of new quotes I’ve gathered that embody the act of giving, creating, and gratitude.  These musings of thankfulness, graciousness & the power of art are wonderful to remember no matter the time of year!  I believe this lens can also help offer some creative counteraction to fear, judgement, and shame during times of distress, suffering, and sorrow.

What creative quotes or practices help ground you in gratefulness & generosity?

  • The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude.  ~Friedrich Nietzsche
  • All art arises out of gratitude, a deep pervasive feeling that you are glad something exists outside yourself, that something can complete you.  ~Dorothy Koppelman

  • Artists are among the most generous…

Mental disorder identity comic

This is so important! Many people find their diagnosis to have really helped them to understand their illness and respect themselves and also not feel alone in their struggles with mental illnesses. It can be very empowering. Of course there are others who want to identify in a different way which is also fine. The first choice of saying “I am” gets criticized more by others and really needs to be as respected as any other choice including the choice to just identify as a person, not a person with a mental illness. There is room for all! Great comic
