30. Fitness

I’m a little bit into fitness. I run and hike, I try to eat right (mostly), and I track my steps with a fitbit knockoff. For those of you not into the fitbit movement, it’s a bracelet that tracks my steps while I go about my day. And my husband thinks it is the most […]

29. Mountain Wedding

My husband and I recently got back from a mountain wedding. We stayed at a ski resort and rode the gondola up to the ceremony and reception. It was a beautiful wedding, and an awesome trip. While we didn’t get to sightsee as much, the mountains were incredible, especially the peaks that were dusted in […]

28. Not always perfect

Did you know that when you look at something, what your eyes really capture is equivalent to the jerky, unstable images of a handheld camera? So why is it that we see so clearly? Because our brain compiles those jerky images from our eyes moving around and stitches them all together to make one cohesive […]

Quote Dissections

27. Quote Dissection 1

I’m going to add something new to my blog: quote dissections. As you are already aware of, I like to use quotes, and sometimes a few words can have powerful meanings. So I am going to dissect them. Today’s quote rings true with a lot of things. We live in a society where people are […]

26. Changes

Business is about strategy, and strategy requires trying new things to see what works best. If you notice on my website, I have made some changes to the style, and have added a store. I’m in the process of incorporating my Black Cat Scribbles store, my Teazzed store, and my own organizational tidbits that I […]

25. Feedback

Feedback is always appreciated. When I get criticism or evaluated, I always look at it as a chance to improve. I may not have the same opinions as the criticizer, but I will look into whatever the complaint is about. Now, if you totally snub your nose at my stuff without having even looked at […]

24. This too shall pass

Last month I sat down at my computer to do some marketing for http://www.BlackCatScribbles.com, and I had my breakfast shake with me. It was left over from the previous school year, but I had been having a shake occasionally from my leftover stash so I could concentrate on getting stuff done. On this particular day […]

Inventing

23. Project updates

2 updates on projects: That new invention idea I’ve been working on quietly in the background, the one with the headphones, has failed yet again. I’m pretty sure my theory is sound, I just need a good way to implement it. It’s a pretty cool idea that could be super beneficial, if it would just […]

Writing

22. A little touch up

When I was doing freelance writing more often, I came across some bad writers. People actually sent me stuff that looked like it went through a grammar shredding machine. Those projects took a lot longer to polish and get back on track. Some people had better grammar and sentence structure skills, and I could put […]

Writing

21. First Impressions

Many moons ago when I wrote my first novel and went to a writer’s conference to try to get picked up by an agent, I had to come up with a pitch to sell it. At the time, I thought that meant a summary of my work, and so I came up with this paragraph […]
