I was busy today with some long-pending house-cleaning and I must confess I am having a good time discovering things I’d forgotten I had, going through old stuff – which is how I came across my Mom’s diary and posted Desiderata yesterday. Best kind of mini break, wouldn’t you say?
So we’re right in the midst of two Blogging Challenges – the Ultimate Blogging Challenge July 2014 and BlogHer’s NaBloPoMo July 2014 and I must admit that blogging can be a challenge sometimes.
Somehow, Life and Fate get together, conspire and ensure that there’s an avalanche of things to do when we take on more than we can chew. This week, when I looked at my diary, I was laughing at myself, wondering how I imagined I’d do it all. But as one of my ex-bosses was fond of pointing out, I thrive best under pressure, which may or may not be a good thing. For others, I mean.
Whatever, I am happily sailing through it all.
Today, though, I booted up my computer to check email and then after a quick glance at it and a chat with Vanita Cyril to beg her to make the pinnable for my Blogging Betties post today, I logged off, confident she’d make a kick-ass visual for my post. And she did.
And so, as their bi-weekly contributor, my next post is up at the Blogging Betties. This time, I am talking about WordPress tips I learned the hard way through lost posts, linking gone wrong, images misbehaving, post title woes and other stuff you will find useful. Do head over and read.
WordPress Tips. Ignore at your own risk
I’d love it if you’d add your own WordPress tips in the comments!
(Update: The Blogging Betties have shut shop, so here is the post – read the post here)
Here are some wonderful posts I read today:
Cattitude and Gratitude Take One Step Forward – she has the gift of verse and this one is very inspiring.
ObsessiveMom – An experiment in Freedom – she charms with her writing and in this post, talks about how she tried a “freedom” day with her kids
The Giggling Trucker’s Wife Writes: Let it go: A writer’s enema – lots of laughter about tackling that thing called writer’s/blogger’s block!
And I, here is what I have on my to-do list!
What about you?
And did you smile today?
Day 15 of the Ultimate Blogging Challenge July 2014 and BlogHer’s NaBloPoMo July 2014
