How long have you been blogging?
I started using LiveJournal in 2002. I still use it currently, but not as frequently as I used to. LJ was my primary “blog” until I started using a Myspace blog. That didn’t last for too long. I’ve had my WordPress blog for almost a year I think. WordPress is now the one I pay more attention to.
What inspired you to start a blog and who are your mentors?
I’m not sure what really got the ball rolling on this blogging thing. I’ve always been writing whether it was online or in a real journal. I like having an outlet, a place where I can express myself about the many things that fly around in my mind. I think I like blogging because of the opportunities it provides. I get a lot of feedback on my thoughts and ramblings from people all over the world. Read more…
Chicago has been getting its ass kicked by snow since 8 a.m. yesterday. It stopped for a couple hours last night and I thought it might be a good idea to do some shoveling since more was on the way. I wanted a head start so I’d only shovel 6 not 10 inches. My efforts […]
I went sledding with my younger cousin today against my will. Obviously from the previous post you can tell I’m not a huge fan of the cold. I’d be better suited living in Arizona or California. California scares me though. Too many natural disasters and Britney Spears drama episodes. Anyway, I trudged through the snow […]
Yesterday I mentioned that I went downtown for a massage. I’ve been complaining about a knot that I believe is growing in my shoulder. I had a voucher for a free student therapist massage at my school. Why not? I got there early to fill out my intake form and I specifically wrote that I […]
Jamie asked a good question in her post this morning: “Can people in a relationship have friends of the opposite sex?” I told her that my response to this would be much too long for a comment and decided to make it into a post of my own. I gave her a short answer of: […]
Everybody else is doing it. Why not share my stories as well? (If everybody else jumped off a bridge, would you? It depends how warm the water is and what I’m wearing.) The bad. The worst was in 1999. I had just gotten into an official relationship with an “older” man. Okay, he was 17, […]
It started when I was six. On a weekend trip to J.C. Penney, I begged and pleaded with my parents to buy me a $5.00 stuffed bunny. They, of course, said no — it’s too expensive. If I really wanted it, they said, I could save up my allowance and come back and get it […]
I’ve been thinking about selling some of my old gold jewelry I never wear anymore for cash while gold prices are still high (today they’re $1,036.60 per oz for 24ct gold). After doing some research online and reading this Wall Street Journal article, I decided to call USGoldBuyers. At first I was a little nervous […]
I feel like I’ve been punched in the jaw. I noticed the pain yesterday. It’s not quite my throat but not quite my jaw. At first I thought it might be wisdom tooth pain, but it doesn’t hurt when I chew on that side or poke my gums. The area right underneath my jaw bone, […]
Since the new year has begun, I have a renewed — and even obsessive — focus on my financial goals. Much has happened in the latter part of 2019 to get my financial wheels turning. In December my husband landed a new full-time job, which ended up being a 62% pay increase. Needless to say, […]
