Tinkering under the blog hood

Chatting with fab trainer J this morning, I verbalized a new epiphany about blogging: it keeps me focused and on track with my objectives. While we were primarily discussing my blog on the better health quest (makingprogressgettingfitter.blog), it also applies to this personal blog as well. Small cakes in the epiphany universe, but through the…

Revisiting days gone by

For another blogging project, I have been revisiting old posts from 2015 and 2016. It's something I rarely do, and now after having done so, I wonder why I don't more often. Well, there's the typos and wrong word choices and maybe I could have stated something better, but with my stream-of-consciousness blogging style I…

Blogging – from there to here

Last year I wrote and posted here frequently, nearly every day, sometimes more than once per day. These days, it seems like a Very Big Deal if I get something written and published once a month. One difference - I was blogging A LOT about my better health and exercise journey. Since that part of…

3 years, 3 days, 1132 posts later

Avoiding a B word

It feels as if my blog is languishing. I know it's not, but the perception in my head and life is one of abandonment. I have been here. I have been reading. I have wanted to write something of substance but simply have not. Damn real life interfering with my blogging! The "busy" word is…

Friends, worry, restorative yoga

One of my friends is a chronic worrier, so much so that it has started to have an impact upon what I write and post on the blog. It has not censored me so much as I stop and think about what I'm writing, wondering if my dear friend will pick up upon it and…

Being meaningful

Something I read this morning¬†mentioned struggling to find meaningful posts to write. That gave me pause - are posts supposed to be meaningful? Oh man! I am so doing this whole blogging thing wrong if that is a rule. And if that is a generally accepted truism, I have a different interpretation of blogging and…

On the first day of air races

So this is our fourth year of 5 days at the Reno national championship air races. M seems to live for these aviation adventures and I, being a reasonable partner, go along for the ride. Mostly. I sit in the stands and read. Talk to the people who sit nearby that we see year after…
