108 Degrees in the sun on Thursday!
The Weekly Re-cap: I told you about my library – my Quiet Home Away From Home and the 4th of July. I posted up my 1st poll – about your library use. I helped a friend interpret her dreams about tornadoes and told you the history behind soap operas. Last but certainly not least, I continued my interview series with an interview of my Mom
The Weekly Read: The Everything Blogging Book and Shift Your Habit.
The Weekly Music: EdXeno sang/rapped Vanilla Ice’s - Ice Ice Baby during karaoke at Elda’s on Lark and it was awesome!
The Weekly Movie: We went to a pre-screened of the movie Cyrus. It had it’s funny moments for sure, but I think they could have done more with the story to make it more interesting or humorous. Not awesome but not bad either.
We also watched The Spy Next Door. I always like Jackie Chan movies
The Weekly Downer: A baby bunny falling into the pool and ending up in the skimmer
The Weekly Good Karma: Michael rescuing the bunny out of the skimmer and us getting to spend and hour or two with ‘Lucky’ before we released him back into the wild. Click the link – you know you want to! The bunny was so cute!
The Weekly Interesting Facts: Since we met Lucky why not learn about rabbits Rabbit facts found here.

- A rabbit can see behind himself, without turning his head, but has a blind spot in front of his face.
- A rabbit sweats through the pads on its feet.

I don’t present myself as a professional blogger. I don’t pretend to be someone I’m not. How do the pro’s decide what to write about? I figured when I started this blog I’d write about random things that go on in my life or things that interest me. Lately though I don’t feel super interesting.
Over the weekend I finally started that recipe page I spoke of on Friday. Right now I have 117 members in less than 72 hours so that must mean that people are interested in it correct? I just wish more people were posting recipes. Other than Michael and I only 5 others have posted recipes. I’ll give it some time though. Weekends are busy for some people. Other’s need to decide what to post. I want people to post recipes that they’ve tried and think are good. I posted the recipe for the lasagna I made this weekend.
I’ve been watching movies over the weekend so I’ll mention them on my “Weeklies” blog which will be posted on Friday.
I have neglected my love of reading lately. I haven’t read anything since I read The Lost Symbol around Thanksgiving. If you haven’t already, check out my list on Goodreads.com. I’m thinking about reading The Lovely Bones so I can have it read before the movie comes out in the theater.
I hope you notice that I usually have links sprinkled throughout my blog. I might need to search for a different font because I think sometimes it’s tough to tell there are links on the main reading page….
In other news my good friend Kim is starting fundraising for the National MS Walk. Please give what you can. Last year her team La Dorkas got donations from all 50 states and multiple countries. They’ve set their goal at $25,000 and I don’t doubt they’ll reach it. Donate whatever you can. Every dollar gets them closer to finding a cure. And be warned, you’re going to hear about the La Dorkas team quite a bit throughout the year, so be prepared. These women are incredible. Hopefully I can find an awesome job so I’ll have the cash-flow to donate as much as I want to and hopefully go there to be with them on the walk I don’t know how Kim does it. She’s got MS and she walked the entire 50 miles last year. I’m perfectly healthy and I doubt I’d be able to walk 50 miles in 3 days….
So back to the original question: How do you decide what to blog about?
What do you think I should blog about?
What would you like to read about?
