Welcome 2018! Pondering resolutions for the New Year…

 

ONE resolution: this year SOMETIMES (THE BLOG) will return to the my Top, #1, Main Pursuit…..every day.

Last year, 2017, was not my best year for writing and working on my blog.    Current events interfered with my goal, which was to put writing with a capital W at the top of my “things to do list.”      Oh sure, my postings were more or less regular, but heavy on the Re-blogs borrowed from other bloggers.

Also, over the year 2017  I posted a lot of my own posts from past years, and many photos gleaned from my hobby of photography, dear to my heart and fairly popular with followers.     The pursuit of bright flowers and trees, and the odd-ball occasional photo that inspired and illustrated the blog entries.       And Poetry…a newfound love thanks to WordPress courses which brought quite a number of acquaintances and blog-friends in trading our poetic masterpieces.    It was in these groups that I found the joys of writing Haiku, and other fancy poetic forms, and my favorite– “free-form” poetry.

So I pledge to follow my true love of writing into the Y2018.    Instead of whining and thinking up reasons why I can’t write, I will just DO it.     Just sit down and write.    Also, I spend a lot of time writing in notebooks….and on envelopes, scraps of newspaper, any handy source for writing on.

I’m already a day late with the “every day” pledge.   My post featuring Marilyn Monroe and Ella Fitzgerald…singing “Tropical Heatwave” should go a ways to redeem my lagging sagging New Year Resolutions.

So… see ya all on the blogosphere.   How’s that for “trite?”   🙂

  1. I need to do more on my family blog which I haven’t added to for months! Unfortunately Facebook and other things have gotten in the way. Happy New Year!

    1. Hi and Happy 2018 to you and your family. I still don’t do Facebook much, there is something about it that I am missing. Social media in general escapes me, seeing all the trouble it causes. 🙂

  2. You have laudable goals for this year. I’m going to put off thinking such thoughts until it’s too late. I was thinking, maybe instead of “trite” it could be “twrite”. Happy New Year!

    1. Happy 2018 to you too Anne! So far business as usual spinning my wheels. Today would have been my late husband’s 101 birthday! Imagine that…he’s been gone 18 years.

      1. remember the Maya wedding dress photo I sent you for a church brochure/project? That was taking a chance giving your address to a stranger on line. And here we are … how many years later? More than 20 I reckon.

      2. Bob actually died at age 82. He was 17 years older than me. His sister is pushing 98, and one of his aunts was 106. His female relatives seem to be long-livers moreso than the men. I probably got the remembering thing from my grandmother, who marked her mother’s anniversary up to 125…that was enough to impress me. 🙂

  3. Good for you! I can’t do it every day, but I do write something each day even if it’s only an email or a Facebook post! Best of luck.
