Set 3 goals for Blogging 201

We started our exciting excursion today into the WordPress class Blogging201.  Finished 101 earlier this year.  Have never taken any of their writing classes.  I might try writing 101 in the future.  Been successfully slaughtering the English language since I spoke my first words as an infant.

Our first assignment was to write down three goals we want to accomplish by finishing this course.  So here they are in the barest black and white.

My 3 goals are quite simple.
1: Help other people who are weakened, by either illness or old age.
2: Make a profit from blogging.
3: Protect children and animals from harm.

Numbers 1 & 3 come from my personal beliefs.  We should stand up for the underdogs in this world whenever and where ever  we can.  Number 2 just needs to be done to help support my family:  My husband, me, and a dorky cat we adopted from the humane society.

Need to start making money to justify the cost of hosting my own web presence on the internet.  Am starting to regret asking my husband to let me purchase an internet site for my own use.  Was told by the people I follow on blogs that having your own site was the way to profit from the internet.

My mother taught me not to believe everything I read in life.  Seems she was right once again!

Have to learn how to get my badge from the 101 class displayed on my site that I now own on the internet.  Have it proudly displayed on my WordPress site, but would like to be able to show it on my private site as well.  Wonder if any of my classmates have figured out how to move our badges onto other sites?  Will have to pursue this investigation further.

Curious as to what our assignment will be for tomorrow’s class.  What challenges will the present us with to try to confound our writing skills.  Mike skills need sharpening!









Just following the assignment for today for the Blogging101 course I am taking.

Chose to join Three Word Wednesday

Three Word Wednesday.

Still awaiting a response on the use of the words in our works. Can we use optimally in place of optimal?  Because I see how to use the three words in a simple sentence if I can use optimally!

I collect optimally polished metallic objects to amuse my cat with.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Half and Half.”

Positive and negative numbers were the only thing that stumped me when I started dealing with them in 8th grade Algebra.  Fortunately, my math teacher was able to put it into terms I understood.  He told me to consider it the same as my checking account.  You want to be on the positive side.  Negatives get you into real troubles in banking!

Like the rest of life, it just depends on your perception of the numbers.  I prefer positive, but don’t we all?

Try to be positive in my daily life, but my husband says I come across as negative.  So which one of us is actually being negative?

About – Elevator pitch

Basic information about this blog.  My desire is to help the people who are weak due to age and / or illness and my twin loves of writing and innocent animals.

My target audience is others who are sick or deppressed like me

Check out The Muppets doing a version of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody for a good laugh.  The characters from Jim Henson’s Muppet show were recorded doing a rendition of Queen’s Bohemian rhapsody, it always makes me feel better.

When you are feeling ill, a little humor helps!  No matter what has you feeling down, there is nothing like the characters from the Muppets to cheer you up.  They do a great rendition of Charles Dickens a “Christmas Carol”.  It is my favorite Christmas movie to watch.  If you enjoy classical music they do a version of Ode To Joy.  Mahna Mahna gets stuck in my husband’s head quite frequently.  Madagascar 2 – I like to move it gets us both rolling!  So we have the minds of children, so what?

Doesn’t matter what you are suffering from laughter is a good thing.  (Maybe not if you recently had surgery on your stomach.)  Pick up a good read from your bookshelves or the local library.  You might accidentally learn something!

Laughing at yourself is a good thing.  Everyone does stupid things now and again.  I do it on an hourly basis, it seems!  Between me and my dorky cat, named Dash we have a lot of fun.  My husband started calling the animal “dorky Dash” because it is politer than stupid.  It has to be the dumbest animal I have ever known.  It falls off the top of my husband’s recliner when the mailman puts mail in our mail slot that comes out in our coat closet.  If you want to make him run away, just ring the door bell.  Proof he is not anything close to a tiger.  Chicken is more like it.
