May 1st, 2011 was an Eventful and Eventfilled day in my life.
Because I’d begun a journey I’ve not yet finished (and most likely never will). That journey was to take me from “What’s a blog?” to approximately 84 blog posts, scheduled to be published on the first Friday of each month. In addition to these regularly scheduled blog posts, I’ve also done “Guest Posts” both here at Romancing The Genres and other blogs. So the 84 is most likely closer to 100!
However, my other accomplishment of which I’m quite proud is Intention & Synchronicity my Judith Ashley blog. I’ve written and published a blog post every Monday since January 2016. And if you click here and look in the right side-bar you can see that in 2015, I logged in 42 posts!
For someone who wasn’t sure about any of the what, when, why, how details of writing and publishing blog posts seven years ago, I’ve come a long way.
I can learn techie things although I’ve still not caught up to my co-Blog Queen Sarah Raplee.
I can click on the Help button without breaking out in hives.
I can come up with new things to say or new ways to say the same thing each month/week. It does help that Sarah and I put together a suggested list of blog topics and I decide on a monthly theme/topic for my Judith Ashley blog.
I can invite other authors to guest at RTG and give them clear information on expectations, etc. Like jpegs because Blogger doesn't like anything else. And Please Do Not embed graphics in your doc. Blogger doesn't like that either.
I can copy, paste Word files and jpeg images into the “New Post” space.
I can change out the RTG Headline and add new Guest Themes and guests.
I can … well, I know there are even more things I’ve learned I can do, that I am able to learn and gain a level of competency that was sorely lacking seven years ago.
And I am fairly certain that none of the above would be accomplished at all if I’d ventured out on my own nor would I have gained the skill level and at times expertise I’ve reached.
What is also true is that the Inner Propaganda I started this journey saying to myself “you can’t learn that, it’s too hard” has changed also. “I can learn that if I want to take the time to do so.” Those words aren’t exactly the same as “I easily and effortlessly learn any and all technical software needed to be a successful blogger and author” but they are a long, long ways from where I started this journey.
In celebration of my own techie learning journey and Romancing The Genre’s 7th Blog-O-Versary, I’m giving away a Sacred Bundle kit. Your bundle will contain an agate from the Oregon Coast that I found and polished, a piece of amethyst, a piece of rose quartz and a crystal with it's own bag along with a circle of cloth and ribbon. Instructions for infusing your sacred bundle with what you want to manifest in your life will be included.
To win, you will need to answer the following question in “Comments.” Be sure your email address is included so I can contact you if you won!
