Last Call for NaNoWriMo

Social Media and Blogging Pet Peeves


Blogging, Social Media

Social Media and Blogging Pet Peeves ARUGH! Warning, this is a petty post. But I feel like I need to rant. I need to rant and commiserate with others who must feel the same way. It can’t just be me, can it? Blogs If you make me click through multiple pages (usually with a photo) […]

The Difference of a Decade


Blogging, Personal

The Difference of a Decade. In my early 30s I entertained the thought of living in NYC and was even accepted into a teaching fellowship program. In my early 40s I can’t even imagine wanting to live in the concrete jungle of steamy heat and so, so, so many people. What a difference a decade […]

I miss blogging.


Blogging

I miss blogging. I miss the spewing of the randomness of the words on the screen. I’ve fallen out of the habit of journaling. I’ve fallen out of the habit of blogging. And I do not like it one bit. The last week or so I’ve been going through the All Things Jennifer archives cleaning […]

Unintentional Censoring


Blogging, Personal

I’ve been censoring myself on the one place I always had to fall back on to be ME above all things…here on my blog. And I’m not happy about it. Instead of diving back in, I haven’t done any substantial ME blogging. I find myself posting on Facebook instead. I lost the ALL THINGS JENNIFER […]
