I was following a blog “Making Happiness a Habit” who had a great idea for the ABC’s of Genuine Happiness. Well, she stopped at C because this was a school project for her and as luck would have it she is on break for the summer. So, I am stealing her idea and I hope we have fun with it.
I won’t have a schedule as to when I post. My plan is to write about the ABC’s of genuine happiness as they are stated in this poster. I would love to see the different opinions of others so I hope you all will comment as I post about each letter and it’s phrase. I think with all of the negativity in the world right now this is a good way to keep a positive vibe. And it is late now, so we can start tomorrow or whenever I decide. Yes! I am in control!
The first letter is A.
Accept your reality.
Be thinking about it!
As a Zero to Hero participant my 30th and last task (Thank God!) is to extend my brand. And to think about a bigger strategic plan for promoting my online presence, and set a goal for the next 30 days.
I have never been so glad to complete a challenge. What the hell is my “brand”? I really don’t care about my online presence. Nor do I have a goal for the next 30 days. Except to rest. Yes, I will take a few days off and enjoy the Super Bowl.
Thank you to the “team of Top Blogging Experts”. As sarcastic as I am. I did actually learn a few things over the last 30 days.
As a Zero to Hero participant my 29th (and almost final!) task is to continue to set myself up for post-Zero to Hero success by thinking through my editorial calendar and adding a regular feature if it works for my blog.
I have a sister blog (Every Day in 2014) that is somewhat structured as I post only in response to the 365 e-book of Writing Prompts. I really enjoy that blog as it allows me to tell a little bit about myself each day based on the prompt. I may get a little creative with it later, but for now I like the direction it is going.
As for this blog, I do try and post only a picture on Wordless Wednesdays and I have recently started the “Speakeasy” challenge over at Yeahwrite. It has been fun and I would encourage other bloggers to sign up and join the fun. Other than these two “regular features” I would rather keep my blog spontaneous, like I am.
As a Zero to Hero participant, my 28th task is to start looking for patterns in my blog’s performance and build on my most popular content. Today, I am to find the post that received the most views, likes and comments and write a related post. The following post was in response to the weekly photo challenge: Juxtaposition A juxtaposition is “the act of placing things side by side, especially for the purpose of comparison or contrast”
I really don’t know how to elaborate much about a photo, other than that I knew immediately what picture I wanted to post in response to this challenge. The photo taken in 2006 at the Monster Truck Jam in Houston. My youngest son was 14 and we had a blast. It was really loud in Reliant Stadium. Next week I take his daughter, my granddaughter, back to the same location for Sesame Street Live! I can’t wait!
As a Zero to Hero participant my 27th task is to remember that we are constantly refining, evolving, and improving our sites as we go. Today I am to pick one of the favorite tasks we have done so far and revisit it.
Oh God, please help me complete this Zero to Hero challenge. Only three more days left. It is a task to simply keep doing the same thing over and over. My mind wants to grow. I am stagnant. I just got my hair done, please keep me from pulling it out. Amen
Last week we were freezing. Another “Ice Storm” we had. Over the weekend our temperatures reached in excess of 70 degrees. Now we will freeze again. This is ridiculous. This is what happens in Texas when it gets cold. We are not able to function. We go into a severe depression. Our electric companies can’t handle the grids from the heat we are pulling. Our skin dries out. The schools shut down. The government offices shut down. And there is no line at Starbucks. Why do Texans want their hot coffee when it is in the 90’s but not when it is in the 20’s? We are spoiled.
Sometimes, you just have to laugh.
Sometimes, that’s all you can do.
