Writing is what I do best. It doesn’t always show through on my blog (although I want it to!), but I write every day. And when I give it my all, it shows.

But it still doesn’t pay the bills. Yet.

I love that word, yet.

And I know that someday, my writing will have yet another Big Before and After moment. I’m just not there…


It’s been over a year since I lost my job, and in my human nature, I tend to get down and negative about the way of the world. I try not to, but hit after hit and sometimes I don’t handle it well.

My friend Wendy sent me this great email a few days ago: “I’m so proud of you and all your hard work while you’re out of work!!” She knows how to look on the bright side of things, and boost my spirits!

So I keep writing. I keep holding on, hoping that things will get better. I know they will. They just haven’t…


And then I saw this on Pinterest.

And I applied.

And now I’m waiting.

Waiting to hear if I’m the lucky recipient of a $1,000 Blog Scholarship. I’ve so many ideas for building my blog, if only I had more funding. This could be the start.

And even if I don’t win, I’m glad that I entered. Their questions are thought provoking and helped me to verbalize what I want for my blog and how I intend to accomplish my goals.

If you won $1,000 to start up or maintain a blog, what would you do with it?

And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!
