Playing Catch-up

Good afternoon!

I just looked at my last post and realized it has been weeks since my last post. No shock there, eh? The good news is, I've been doing some off-line blog work and have a plan in mind for the A-Z Challenge in April. Yes, I've actually got a theme this year! I'll talk more about that as the weeks wind down to the start of the challenge. By the way, if you're up for a lot of writing, blog hopping and a lot of fun, sign up for the challenge. This will be my second year doing it and I can tell you it's the hardest work and the most fun you'll do for your blog. I guarantee it! Sign up at Blogging from A-Z Challenge 2013.

Not only do I have a theme for this year's A-Z Challenge I've finally (FINALLY) decided upon a theme for this blog. I won't do any design changes until after the A-Z Challenge as the theme for my posts tie directly into the new focus of this blog but I'll give you a hint: it has to do with writing ;)

So, here's a question for you: does YOUR blog have a specific theme or themes that it focuses on? I only ask because I want your opinion. There are so many of you out there who do such a wonderful, succinct way of making your voice heard on your blogs. There are very focused blogs and there are blogs that cover a menagerie of topics and do so very, very well. As for me, I haven't really been able to hang on to one or several topics in quite some time. I blame school for that but to be honest, there's no excuse but this: I've fallen behind in writing, editing, and the current circle of writers and writing news.These past few weeks, however, I've been digging and researching and outlining. Long story short, I've been writing again and I'm excited.

Thanks to everyone who has continued to read my sporadic and rather dull blog posts over the past two years. I appreciate the continued support and friendship. Things are going to get better around here. I've got a lot of house keeping to do but I'm looking forward to it!

Thanks for the input and don't forget to sign up for the A-Z Challenge!



  1. Glad you have a theme for the Challenge. It's much easier than winging it.
    My blog's theme focuses on entertainment - movies, music, science fiction, blogging news, etc. I never run out of ideas, that's for sure!

  2. Hi Jen! I can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve. I have my A-Z Challenge started and was going to work some more on it today.

    My blog is my "online diary", so whatever is going on around here goes on my blog. I also do book reviews, early Oregon history, photography, crafts, flash fiction, etc.

    I can't wait to see what your changes will be. You have a great blog, and I always enjoy coming here to visit.

Well, hello! I'm so glad you made it. Come inside and sit by the hearth. I'll take your coat and hat. The kettle is singing and there's cake and candles and good conversation. Settle in and make yourself at home. Don't mind the wolfhounds; they're friendly if you give them a bit of lemon curd.
