WordCount Blogathon Theme Day: Haiku

Today is another theme day for the WordCount Blogathon: Haiku. I have never written a haiku in my life and I don’t write poetry of any type, be it rhyming or non-rhyming, so this may be a challenge.

When my kids giggle
It wiggles into my heart
Laughs and love abound

Okay. Not horrible. I wrote that on the fly, just now. All that planning down the drain. 🙂

WordCount Blogathon Week 3 Recap


*sigh* I had such high hopes for this blogathon. I still have a week to redeem myself, though. I have to say that if not for the blogathon, I would not have posted for at least half the days in June. Which, I suppose, is pretty much the point of the blogathon. I could just drop out, but I’m stubborn that way. I had to drop two challenges last year; I’d prefer not to do that this year.

WordCount Blogathon Week 2 Recap

I’ve been in a fog this week, and not only was it hard to make myself blog, but I’ve hardly been online. I’m taking medication that I just started Monday, and it’s making me groggy. Normally, I could sleep a little later in the morning to feel rested, but the boys had VBS this week, so we had to be up early every day. I might have come back home for a nap one or two of those days…

But I did blog, even if a few of my posts were less than my best writing. In case you missed them, here are my posts for the week.

WordCount Blogathon Week 1 Recap

Not sure I’ll manage to do a recap every week, but here we go. LOL When I signed up for this blogathon, I knew that coming up with ideas for posts wasn’t going to be a problem. I have a long list of ideas (and I still have one post that’s half written, but needs some work, that I started in May) and a long list of review books. My problem is taking the time to sit down and write them. This is forcing me to do that. It’s a bit scary in a way, because some of these ideas have been sitting around for a while, and if I use them all up this month, what will I use later? Continue reading

Top 5 Apps I Use for Blogging

Today is Theme Day #1 for the WordCount Blogathon: 5 Favorite Apps. Specifically, your five favorite apps for writing. Or, in my case, blogging.

1. Evernote: I wouldn’t be surprised if this one is on every list today. I use it to jot down ideas for blog posts, those cute things my kids say that I post here, and to flesh out post ideas. It helps with home organization, too, because I can take pictures of bills and receipts, file them, and find them easily later. Less time dealing with stuff means more time to write. Continue reading
