When I started drafting this post in my head, the first thing that popped in my brain was the title "Life, My Universe, and Everything" even though it has nothing to do with the amazing author of some of my favorite books. So I decided to just go for it. 😄 Once again, I've fallen... Continue Reading →
NaBloPoMo & HiveBloPoMo (aka Hive Blog Posting Month for April 2021!
As I've done a few other times over the past couple of years (and full disclosure, this announcement post is pretty much a rehash of the last one 😂 ), I'm hosting another month of daily posts on the blockchain, known as HiveBloPoMo (Hive Blog Posting Month) for April 2021. I know some other awesome... Continue Reading →
International Blog Delurking Week 2021, hosted by @parul2411
It's International Blog Delurking Week 2021 over at Parul's WordPress blog (yes, the same awesome woman who hosts #ThursdayTreeLove). Technically, since the dates are January 4th to the 10th, I'm sliding in just barely under the wire for this one. I'd planned to join in earlier in the week, but got sidetracked by a bunch...

Blog envy and #ThreeTimesThree
Yep, no matter how many times I try to convince myself that the only person I should compare myself to is the person I was yesterday (or however that inspirational quote goes), I'm still getting caught up in blog envy. When I scroll through my WordPress Reader, I see people who started their WordPress blogs... Continue Reading →

As I've done a few other times over the past year and a half, I'm hosting another month of daily posts on the blockchain, known as HiveBloPoMo (Hive Blog Posting Month). I know some other awesome people on Hive have done similar 30 day posting challenges (like @macchiata, who was pointed out to me by... Continue Reading →
My Blog – How It Started versus How It’s Going
I saw the "How It Started vs. How It's Going" thing going around Twitter a couple of days ago, and thought it would be fun to jump in, but couldn't figure out exactly what I wanted to compare. Then today, between the update post from the team (@howo & @fredrikaa) behind the WordPress plugin called... Continue Reading →
Three years and a day on the Hive Blockchain
Yesterday, after yet another crazy-awesome #HiveChat on Twitter, and whilst chatting with some friends about Tarot Tuesday and the equinox, I got a notification on Discord that I'd received a new comment on my Hive blog, announcing that I'd been on the Hive blockchain for three years... Sure enough, I checked my profile... Continue Reading →
Numbers Don’t Lie: How Blogging 3 Times a Week Changed My Blog Traffic
Here's a Throwback Thursday of a different sort. Today I'm sharing my very first PAID blog post that I did back in 2015, called "Numbers Don’t Lie: How Blogging 3 Times a Week Changed My Blog Traffic." At some point in the past few years BlogHer, the website I wrote it for, deleted all their... Continue Reading →
Introducing Hive Blog Posting Month (aka #HiveBloPoMo)!
Last year, I got the idea to up my blogging game yet again (as I did back in November 2014) by putting together a daily blog post tag with a crypto twist - hence, the #SteemBloPoMo tag (and now renamed Twitter account) were born! This year, I started planning way in advance for a second... Continue Reading →
My 2019: The last 2019 Showcase Weekend: My Three Best Posts of the Year
It's that special time of year when people look back and take stock of things that have happened over the past twelve months, before tearing the last page off the calendar and starting anew. I've seen a bunch of my blogging friends (like SickChristine) doing recaps of their posts, and planned to jump in myself,... Continue Reading →
Introducing the WordPress & SteemPress Bloggers Facebook Community
It was this time of year back in 2014 that I'd just finished doing NaBloPoMo, an offshoot (started by the now re-imagined website BlogHer) of NaNoWriMo. In the year that followed, I definitely noticed a big uptick in my blog traffic - so much so that I wrote about it, which then became my first... Continue Reading →
Why WordPress.com bloggers should give the SteemPress plugin a try
Yes, I know, I know - not a day goes by that I'm not babbling on about the Steem blockchain in some shape, manner, or form. In fact, for anyone that follows me on social media (mostly looking at you, Twitter), you're probably tired of seeing that name in your feed. I've even written a... Continue Reading →
