Blog Along, Take Two

Take Two

I am wild confident sexy female winning in my life now!”

A phrase I coined years ago as a seminar participant. Although now: I am mildly carefree sexy woman living my life to the fullest. Or even a late bloomin’ baby boomer…. Interesting how that sing-song phrase stayed branded on my brain from twenty years ago, with added verse hah.

I want to catch what I missed; fine tune what I caught; and improve written communication. I will select my words wisely, grow my vocabulary, and interact with fellow bloggers. I am no wordsmith: I don’t hammer, drill, needle, or siphon.

I fail miserably at word wars: my cap gun loses to machine guns. I don’t war with them anymore.

The spoken word brings life or death. It is not as binary as text. Dimension and meaning are brought with facial expressions, response time, silence, eyes, and of course: t-o-n-e.

My desire is to move, touch and inspire my follower by sharing a thought, experience or story, with a sincere promise not to constipate your inbox.  My average posts (sans blog101 assignments) are once or twice a month.  Life is like that for me now.

Fortunately, as the binary observer, you won’t have to wait for that one word or deal with response lag time. What you skim in 20 seconds, I will have spent a total of two days, a week, or more. spitting it on paper. I admire the writing of mikesteeden and Claremary P. Sweeney, and many others: Global glossaries!

Knowing what I know now, I’d choose to play with numbers as a kid instead of color.

Meet my new crayon: Blog.

If you have not yet voted, please do so here or simply arrow to the post before this one. (Comments are also welcome)

HOMEWORK: I’m going to cheat a little because I have created an about page recently, just not mine. Since my layoff at work awhile ago, I have succumbed to the fact that I will forever be student of social media while getting up to speed assisting my husband promoting our home-based business. That said, I recently put together his page. He also has a blog here on WordPress. Simple and sweet reminders for the masses.

See you soon, til then, I’ll keep you posted on my perfusion of poll properties!
