Why I write.
I write to get some of the frustration I feel out. The pent up anger.
I also write to release some of the joy I have when I look outside and see the turkey and the deer in the yard. When I hear the birds singing.
Blogging Tips. I am just getting to where I even understand what an SEO Is. For those few of you out there stands for Service Engine Optimization.
I hate to say it but it just sounds like a silly term to me. This post is very easy to read and understand.
She has some very good tips for new and old bloggers.

Blogging 101: you don’t need to pay for SEO.
The following is a much needed post on awards and the snowballing effect they may have on people. How do you handle all of the ones you may receive?
I, for one ,love each and every award/nomination I have received.
I mean loved it. As in wanting to cry because it means the world to me….
Then I have to turn it down. I just can’t handle 7 and 8 coming in at a time.
I don’t want to have to do the same to anyone else.
That said, I feel as If I am missing something fun and exciting.
I love the questions being asked. I would love to respond to those.
What is the best way to handle them?
Thanks Anand for this wonderful post.
As most of you already know I just finished or am in the process of finishing Blogging 201. I am done except for a lot of tweaking and having a guest blogger. That was actually offered to me and I gladly accepted. Just waiting for a good time….
As you also know, I have needed to separate Our Neck Of The Woods From Sarah’s Attic Of Treasures. I was writing more on Our Life/ My Life than I was working on Sarah’s Attic…. I never combined the 2 on Facebook so I am surprised I tried to here. I can mix Our Neck of The Woods in on occasion and I will . You won’t be able to stop me. But Sarah’s Attic is my escape from life……
So Back to 101.
Yep, 3 weeks of daily or every other day reports.
We pretty much covered this in 201 and I did it again today in Our Neck Of The Woods.
I AM NOT TRYING TO GET YOUR TO VISIT THIS PAGE….NOT YET ANYWAY. LOL
I have tweaked most of what you see on Sarah’s Attic of Treasures……in the last week also.
When all is said and done.
The title will be : Sarah’s Attic Of Treasures
I will break down my tagline as well. This is what I just wrote in the Commons.
That is all I am doing here tonight. No added pictures.
Goodnight From Our Neck Of The Woods…..Sarah
Good Evening from Florida. I want to shout to the world that I am among the living once again. No, I haven’t magically improved. That will be an ongoing process. What it means is that the worst of the flare is over….At least for now. What it also means is that the fibro fog has lifted and I can once again think.
It took everything I had to post each day. Something that normally would have taken 10 minutes or so took 30 minutes or longer. I had to stop and think about every step I was making. I still need to go back and tag/ categorize and add a photo. I didn’t even try and do that. Thanks to all the Get Well Wishes. I answered all of them in my email accounts (I hope) but saw a few when I opened this up..I will answer those as soon as I get off here.
Another gloomy and wet day here.
Saturday we got another 2.3 inches of rain. Today, so far…..only a few showers. So far.
Danny is trying to unwind from his 7 day stretch.
It may take awhile. This was just one of those weeks everyone has. Nothing worked right.
He is off tomorrow and Tuesday. Works Wednesday, Thursday and Friday….then is off the weekend. Then of course he starts another 7 day stretch.
I am still working on the 3 assignments from Blogging 201 that I haven’t finished.
Blogging 101 is in the first comments stage. We have our Welcome letter….Blogging 101 :The Commons is working well. So the 3 weeks have begun for this class.
So you will be seeing a lot of Blogging 101 reports and some 201 leftovers. I always finish what I start.
I do have a guest blogger coming soon. I didn’t even have to ask. I am looking forward to Ryan’s posts.
More information there when I get it.
If anyone ever wants to guest blog here, just let me know. This blog is ideal for almost anything.
I have really missed posting from the newspaper. I didn’t realize how much I would miss it. So have some of you. Thanks for the emails.
I changed the title a bit..Left out some words. I may or may not leave it like this. Not sure. I just needed to do something with the title.
As usual, I hit publish instead of Save Draft so it got published early. Some things never change.
Ok, on with the paper…..
I am starting it a little after 8PM. Danny is content right now but that may change. If it does then I might be awhile.
Daily Treats About Life , Recipes, Books., Blogging and Whatever I See That I like :
Do I have any NASCAR fans out there?
Danny and I are huge NASCAR fans but we seldom get to watch a race any more. He works every other weekend.
PLUS we don’t have cable so we can only watch a few of the races. Depending on reception.
That IRKS both of us. Enough said on that sore subject.
I don’t know about you but THAT looks wonderful.
Now what did I do? Still can’t figure out the text sizes and all.
This is from Super Healthy Kids Blog/ Magazine.
Is your mouth drooling , yet….?
I am going to end with just these 2 posts tonight.
Danny is waiting for me.
I want to say Good Morning and for many of you it still is. I got up around noon so it still feels like morning to me.
I got Danny off this morning and was back in bed before he reached the gate. Tired. Exhausted.
My body is still feeling the flare. It would like to be in bed, although getting comfortable there is getting harder and harder. I’ve spent days and nights there recently.
My mind is fairly clear so I feel better overall.
I am working on picture arrangements right now so they don’t always end up on the left. I usually don’t think about it ahead of time.
Our internet is slower than usual….SNAIL Slow. It also keeps going on and off. Flooding in the area isn’t helping matters.
So if you don’t hear from me it might be the internet. I always try to at least post once a day when I don’t feel good.
I can’t get the photos to go side by side. I posted the pretty one second and it won’t stay in place. I know there has to be an easy solution but I can’t figure it out.
This week…..baring all things lupus and fibro…I plan to
catch up on what I missed in Blogging 201. I start Blogging 101 as soon as it comes in today. Should be 6PM.
I am also reading Proverbs. It was a July project. I got behind this week.
Danny is on his 7th day. I expect him home around 4PM but with the rain he just might come home early.
He had a difficult week. The John Deere lawn mower took a lot more time to fix than he thought it would. He no sooner got it fixed and was mowing at the park (Before bringing it home for our use. It stays here.) when he ran over a fishing line and HOOKS. Not just one hook but 3.
So back to the shop to fix another tire. He’d already had to fix the one that kept going flat for me.
He brought it home Thursday, in the rain. When he went to unload it off the trailer, he couldn’t find the key. So we looked and looked for it. In the rain. In the house. In the TRASH. In strange places.
I heard …..by way of the radio…today….that he has a key for it. Which means it was found or they found an extra one…..
All I know is: Our Lawn needs mowing.
The bunkhouse needs mowing.
The Entrance needs mowing.
The drive there and back …..not quite as much since our cattle lease mowed it for me one day when he was mowing his fields.
I need to do an update as to what I accomplished on my house/yard goals. Nothing outside that I can think of…I did pretty good on inside ones. I think….Like I said…I need to post about it.
I also need to update my Blogging goals. I need to get the calendars filled in for this month. Home/yard goals. Blogging goals.
Upfront where I am held accountable.
That’s it for now. As you can tell, I have a plateful of things to do. A wheelbarrow full is more like it.
So have a good rest of the weekend.
