If you are like me, you might not be able to write your post without a title. For me, at the very least, I need a working title, a placeholder. Only then am I able to begin writing. With that in mind, here’s the list of the titles that I dismissed before landing on “Untitled.” Checking In Ghosting It’s Not You, It’s Me Radio Silence I’ll be Seeing You (…well, […]

With all Due Consideration

Like many of you, I started blogging in early January – New Year’s Resolutions, you know. Therefore, also like many of you, I recently received a notice from WordPress that I could expect a charge for renewing my blog theme. Like some of you, I’ve been away from blogging. Life, you know.

If we were having coffee…Acronym-Rich Version

PSA in Two Parts

I follow Nina over on The Getting Old Blog. I may have written about her here before, but after reading FIRST HUSBAND (I OF II) I feel compelled to write a public service announcement in order to advise you: Go. Read. Prepare to be delighted. The second part of this PSA relates to the comment I left on that post last night. It was re-directed to spam. She was surprised. WordPress put your comment […]

If you are Reading This. And a Request.

If you are reading this in WordPress Reader, then I wish you a good day. If you are not reading this in Reader, and you should be because you have elected to read my blog in Reader… then… um… hmm. That’s a problem, isn’t it? I have come to the conclusion that every now and again I must take some time to work through the list of bloggers that I follow […]
