Outside of this blog, I feel like I’ve been a poor participant in the Blogiverse. Maybe what I need is a checklist. I started looking for blogging tips on Pinterest this week because if I can barely keep up with my comments now, just imagine how crazy I’ll be if I more than double my viewership!
My goal isn’t to go crazy, though. I just want to be more engaged in this world. The summer has been busy and this past week has been the busiest of them all. I want to get back to all the great things about blogging. Yes, I love writing and I adore your comments. I’ve been able to visit my favorite blogs recently, but I want more. I’m hoping this checklist I found of Pinterest will help me out.
Did you just get chills listening to that? I have chills. This was the opening performance of the Distant Worlds concert I went to last weekend. While the concert was a celebration of the 20th anniversary of Final Fantasy VI, this performance left me in awe. I desperately hope this will be on a future Distant World’s CD. I desperately need The Hymn of the Fayth to be a constant in my life. Good thing I have both the original and HD soundtracks to Final Fantasy X.
(and yes, that’s the opening to One Winged Angel the video cut off. Sorry)
This week was characterized by four days of meetings. It wasn’t unenjoyable. I learned a lot and I think people found value in what I had to say. Really, I felt like part of the team. Nearly every day, I’m reminded this is the job I need to be in. In an odd way, it’s a good thing I got laid off.
In other news, I may be buy a new car as you read this. What a big adult step! Owning a car that’s less than five years old.
FYI, social media plays a big part in that blogging checklist. That’s reason two I like it. I know I’m on social media every day, but it’s time I get back to social media for my blog as well.
I did go work out with a friend once this week. I would have gone twice except work dinners that I had previously been told were not required suddenly seemed very required. Not wanting to look like I didn’t like these guys, I went on all the days towards the end of the week. I enjoyed the dinners, so it wasn’t a huge sacrifice.
While the one workout was great, I feel like i might have annoyed the trainer. I talk to much. Really, I need to learn to stop that.
…except this week. My days of meetings were followed by work dinners. No writing got done this week. That mean’s my chapter summaries will be finished next week, which is okay. It will get done by the end of the year (and I’m still shooting for the end of October).
