"...with Holly Jahangiri"? That feels weird to share, despite referring to myself in third person on my own bio. :) Come on over and show Joan Y. Edwards some blog love - and grab a few useful (I hope they're useful!!) tips while you're at it. I finally got to meet Joan face-to-face at the OWFI Conference in Oklahoma, and definitely think you should consider going to that, next year, wherever you are.
“Interview and Top Ten Social Media Tips with Holly Jahangiri” by Joan Y. Edwards Today I am very excited to share Holly Jahangiri’s Top Ten Social Media Tips. I met her at the Ok…

Blisters formed and burst where grimy hands clenched sun-kissed steel bars, swinging to and fro, climbing hand-over-hand to claim the top tier of the monkey bars. I looked down at the palms of my hands. I rubbed them together briskly, till sweaty dirt and…

Walking to raise money for charity is nothing, these days. By that, I don’t mean it’s not a fun and worthwhile, healthy activity that does good – just that there’s really no challenge in it if you get the same donation whether you walk or oversleep and…
No, I really did walk to in two feet of snow, uphill - both ways! Then I tried to fry myself in suntan oil. For a good cause. Plus, walking's good for you.

If we're not connected on Instagram, you may not have met my little friends, yet. What author doesn't have a Plot Bunny or three foraging in their brain?

Sometimes, only poetry or art will do.

I don't think I really ran out of things to say; turns out, I had too much to say, and a logjam of emotions got in the way.
You win. I choose the cool breeze that wanders, whistling, wending through the drooping leaves and brittle branches, ruffling feathers causing the wisest of wise old owls to cock its head and glance askew scarcely believing I’ve run out of things to say. “Who…you?”

I don't remember the last time I actually craved a piece of tech based on aesthetics ... lol.  I was surprised when I dug into the specs just how practical it is too.  Think this might have to be my next purchase!

It’s one thing to belong to, and get feedback from, a local writing group where everybody knows your name. It’s quite another to get constructive criticism from someone who has nothing but your words by which to judge your writing and who isn’t…
You learn much from feedback when someone has nothing but your words by which to judge your writing and isn't constrained by friendship in giving it.

The four-legged cast-iron Dutch oven sat just outside the kitchen window, masquerading as a planter for wild things. Tetanus, maybe. Was it worth saving?

Yoast SEO and the Readability Checker Blogging can lead to lazy writing habits. I don’t know of any automated grammar checker that can accurately flag 100% of all errors without also throwing a good number of “false positives.” However, Yoast SEO‘s…

Ever struggle with a loose or wobbly USB connector on your phone charger? Did you throw out the charger and buy a new one? Here's something to try, first (for free - using only a pin or needle for a tool!) and if that doesn't work, or you just need a new or better charger, I have a recommendation - I love this one!
My review of the Ingenium [NEXT-GEN Quick Charge 2.0] Adapive Fast Wall Charger, plus a great, free, quick fix for loose, wobbly micro USB connectors.

Time for this reminder, again. There's been an uptick in spurious Friend requests, and most could've been prevented if people would just do this one thing...
Protect yourself and your Facebook friends with this one weird trick. Okay, it's not weird at all - and it only takes one minute.

It's unfortunate we have to do it, but it helps.

You ever just make up a word? Does it bother you when others do? Do you think that writing should be simpler, more straightforward - or richer, nuanced with synonyms?
