I just got back from a writer's guild meeting about blogging.  Jessy Ferguson, an accomplished author, educator and friend, shared some helpful hints.  She stressed the importance of posting frequently- something which I have fallen short on lately.  I am going to try to post more often than I have been, so please keep checking and leave a comment. 

Today has been a much better day for me.  I was able to publish an article for my writing gig at the online Examiner.  I had a nice visit with my mom and treated myself to a pedicure (my favorite thing now, thanks to a friend).  As I sat in the chair relaxing I noticed that the ladies who work there all speak more than one language.  They talk to the customer in English and then they start holding conversations with each other in their own language.  Are they talking about me or someone else?  I wish I had my own secret language with friends that I could use for discreet observations.  Wouldn't that be fun?

Another interesting thing that happened is the turtle-in-the-house incident, but I will share about that, with photos, next time.

Oooh, now I am intrigued and looking forward to the turtle post.

I quite agree that blogging often is important. I have noticed, in the very short time I have been blogging, that the more frequently I post, the more often people "stop by" to visit. Better yet, they leave comments. Woo Hoo! I know that I should leave more comments on posts I enjoy, but that could turn out to be a full time job, LOL!

I am checking out the links you posted in this post and thanks for sharing!!
