30-Day Blogging Challenge Day 9: A picture of my best friend

Meh. I moved school so much, so I don’t really have one that sticks to me. I do have a select group of close friends over the years, but I don’t have one that I would pinpoint as being special. All of them are especially great. So no. No picture. …

30-Day Blogging Challenge Day 2: Meaning behind my blog name

WordPress PostADay Challenge: are you game?

I know that the original challenge is intended for WordPress.com users, but, hey, it doesn’t hurt to join in the fun. I’ve done a 30-day blog challenge before, so I know how difficult it can be for some of us to keep up. It’s not so much because we’re out …
