Life As I See It

I’m sitting at the doctors office waiting for my mother to get a exam for her heart. As I sat and watched people go in and out with canes and slow steps, I realized again how fragile life really is.

Since losing my sister and being 50 years old time seems to be slipping away. But I also think about how I have lived a good life this far and I need to step up my game and have even more fun!

Life is full of highs and lows but you push through. Can you imagine all the life that has been lived by each one of the people I see today? It’s crazy.

I’m gonna live and have some fun

Spread the Love Challenge

Lisa W. Tetting


I was tagged in Send Sunshine’s post to participate in the Spread the Love Challenge. Here are the rules:

• Write 10-four word sentences about love
• Share your favorite poem filled with love
• Nominate 10 more bloggers to spread more love

I love inspiration and I am all about spreading love so this challenge is right up my alley. Here we go:

“Love is not dead” “Love can melt hearts” “Love is my religion” “Love does not blame”
“Love can be hard” “Love can be contagious” “Love sees no color” “Love is a journey”
“Love transcends all time” “Falling in Love rules”

One of my favorite Love Poems is A Conceit by Maya Angelou. It was featured in the movie Poetic Justice, which stared Janet Jackson and Tupac Shakur


Ten blog I am tagging to Spread the Love:

1. Seasoned Sistah 2
2. Beyond the Flow
3. Izzy-Grabs-Life

Be A #BeWoW Blogger TOMORROW!!!


#BeWoW blogshare begins TOMORROW!

Write a post and tweet it with the hashtag of #BeWoW and I’ll RT it. Okay, I’ll RT it when I wake up. 🙂 And other bloggers will be RTing as well. Is RTing a word, well I mean like a social media word?

Make sure it’s a post that is positive, encouraging, uplifting. I think you get the message here. This is not for just a post you want to share. It MUST have the BeWoW message of positivity.

So what do you do?

  1. Create a post or choose one you have that meets the encouraging/positive/wonderful definition.
  2. Share that link from your blog here in the Wednesday BeWoW post I put out after midnight Wednesday EST. That way others that drop by here can go check you out if they like.

[New Post] Where Is My Writing Mojo?

Today I realized I can’t seem to write anything that is thought provoking or meaningful. This happens to me often. I can go days where I write, share, and engage with others. Then all of a sudden it stops. This is happening today. I’m anxious because I have not posted anything in a couple of days. Being a part of Blogging 201 kept me going. Now I feel like because I’m on my own, I can’t get the writing done.

What do you do when you can’t write? I have ideas but when I sit to formulate them to make sense, my mind gets jumbled with all kinds of other things.

Let me know how you get your writing mojo back and continue to write something?

Thanks All

[New Post] A Dog’s Love: There Is Nothing Like It

Tanner and Me photo(112)If you follow me on social media you know I love dogs. Growing up I could not have a pet due to my allergies. But as an adult, I decided to put up with the sniffles and runny nose and get myself a dog. One dog lead to three.

Right now I have a beautiful black Chow named Solomon, two Maltese Poodles named Tanner and Mia. Tanner is in the photo. If you are a pet parent, you understand the love of a dog(s). They love unconditionally. They make your heart feel good and they don’t talk back.

This month we celebrate love and I could not let the month go by without acknowledging how important my dogs are in my life. My three dogs make me happy and when I feel bad they do something and I start smiling. The photo of Tanner and I is from the other day when I was missing my sister. Tanner just laid next to me and when I cuddled with him he just relaxed as to say “go ahead mama, you can lay on me.”

There is nothing like it…

For all the pet parents, happy love day!

How to Get 100,000 Views of Your BLOG (21 Blogging Tips)


Blogging Tips T


I first began blogging actively on WordPress in December, 2012.

Only a little over 2 years, and my blog has reached 100,000 views and nearly 4,000 followers. My blog averages over 400 views per day presently, and the viewing frequency steadily accelerates.

If I can do it, you can, too. I believe it.

It’s not rocket science. (Just ignore the fact that I have a Ph.D. in physics. I didn’t use any physics to make my blog.)

In fact, I’m sharing my blogging ‘secrets’ today to help you do the same.

It’s not just me. I meet many other WordPress bloggers with many more views and followers than I have.

If you’re not there yet, don’t worry. You can get there, too.

I’ve created multiple blogs and webpages with WordPress, BlogSpot, GoDaddy, etc. By far my most successful blog or webpage is this WordPress blog. We’re fortunate that…
