I spent the last few days trying to decide if I should participate in Na(tional) Blo(g) Po(st) Mo(nth) this year. I found no information about NaBloPoMo 2017–not even from Blogher, which normally hosts and offers prompts and support for participants–so I decided NaBloPoMo would be a no-go for me this year.

Not only did I get caught up on some blogging but I reminded myself that I can find time to get things done “no matter what.” Most … Continue reading 30 Days Straight–We Made It!
The party is never really over with Liberate Your Art. It is pure pleasure to find a “random” postcard from another LYA participant in my mailbox. I had the good fortune of sharing with many other photographers and artists long after the swap and the blog hop. Wanna see? Christine of Flagstaff, Arizona has been a faithful postcard … Continue reading “Art Takes Courage”–Liberate Your Art 2016 Side Swaps
After spending the better part of an afternoon “organizing” the incoming mail that cluttered my desk, I decided November will be “Pics and Post Catch-up Month.” To make sure I follow through with the plan, I made a commitment to participate in BlogHer’s NaBloPoMo (National Blog Post Month), which means I will post every day in November.
