Falling off the blog wagon

Falling off the blog wagon

I haven’t blogged since October 23, which is just nuts. Yeah, you’ve seen me here since then. I’m talking about over at my own site. I had a real roll going on with a series of blog posts about editing (whoo-hoo!). But seriously, when I attended the Florida Writers Association last month, I was surprised […]

Alphabet Blogging

Alphabet Blogging

Yeah, I know, I missed blogging…again…for several weeks… *sigh* It’s just so easy to do, you know? Monday rolls around, and I think, “Oh, I’ve got a couple of days…I don’t have an idea yet, so I’ll wait and see what happens…” And then somewhere on Tuesday, I completely forget that I have a blog […]

Getting Organized, Part 4

Getting Organized, Part 4

Last week, I introduced my new system for getting organized. Now, I didn’t invent it, it’s just new to me. In an effort to get the different areas of my life organized, I’ve adopted the binder system for keeping track of home management, homeschool, and work. My home management binder has been a great asset. […]

Platform Building

Platform Building

This week I’ve been reading Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World by Michael Hyatt, along with several blogs, in an effort to better understand why I haven’t been able to grow my blog readership since I moved my website almost 2 years ago. I’ve even been running what I think is a fun spin […]

2012: NAF Year in review

2012: NAF Year in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. So we thought we’d share it with you, our loyal readers, because without you, this wouldn’t have been possible: Here’s an excerpt: 19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 110,000 times in […]

Three Months to Go…

Three Months to Go…

Man, it’s October already? Where has the year gone? Three more months, and we’ll be headed into 2013. The post-conference high has worn off a bit, so I thought it was time to take a minute and reflect on my goals, make some modifications, and plan out (the best I can) my writing for the […]

Unoriginal but important: Don’t steal photos

Unoriginal but important: Don’t steal photos

One of the hardest things about blogging is the feeling that you’re just saying things that have already been said better by someone else. That idea often leads me to second-guess myself. I have a note on my bulletin board that I wrote during one of Cecil Murphey’s talks at the Florida Christian Writers Conference […]

Creationism vs. Evolution

Creationism vs. Evolution

*Everyone takes out their perspective flags and prepares for war. Whoa. Whoa. Let’s take a moment. That’s not the creation vs. evolution that I’m writing about here. It’s a much less dramatic and personal issue in this post. What I’m talking about is the creation of a story versus it’s evolution. Sorry for the obfuscation. No […]
