Blog Changes Continue as Focus is Applied!

Thanks to each of you who gave me a suggestion or two about improving the blog. I've implemented several and have several more to go. But it's getting better, I think! I really hated that LONG, LONG list of tags/labels but couldn't figure out how to make a tag cloud when I'd tried before. Today I was struggling with it again and went to my old "gadget" for the labels section and found that Blogger had added a "Cloud" choice to the previous single choice of "List". Thank you, Blogger! More changes and more news to come! Be patient with me, please. :)

Tell me what you think. . . . please. . . . .

And it won't hurt my feelings! Too much! This is change #99 since I started blogging, most likely. Some things I like better and better and some things I like how they used to be. But the good news is that I learn so much everytime I change things. The main changes were to the header which isn't what I want, really, but it's getting closer. I like the black titles and borders and the "grunge" corners--can you believe I set that up without using Photoshop, my nemesis? LOL

I got rid of the quote which was too overpowering--I'll find somewhere else to incorporate it, another day. For now, it's off to bed for me. . . . (yawn)

Another Monday, almost past. . . . .

I feel like I'll be doing good to blog once a week and I used to try to blog every day. What has changed?

I'm trying hard to get myself organized--EVERYthing organized, that is. My art studio, my computer, my files, my emails, my wardrobe, the home filing cabinet, Roy's music and the list goes on. I know that the outcome will be positive when the project is finished, but, meanwhile I am in a state of confusion and frustration. The intensity and immensity of the project is what is daunting and I have to keep reminding myself--how do you eat an elephant????

Short Post. . . .

"Miss Kitty"--the boss/supervisor of the organizational effort
. . . . to say that I'll be back very soon to write a longer one and to try to get back on a schedule of writing more regularly. I'm taking Alyson Stanfield's "Get Organized" class right now and one of the things we are setting up is an electronic filing system. I've put down a schedule for my blog posts so now I'll just have to start following it, right? My office looks like a tornado came through but I can see great progress in the filing system (I now HAVE one!), the electronic task program, my calendar, my social media interactions--and a real newsletter looms on the horizon! I'll keep you posted--hang in there and send encouraging thoughts my way. :)
