I usually do writing prompts on Wednesday, but I’ve decided to expand to include anything writing related. This means I’ll be discussing Tips, Tricks, and Shortcuts in writing as well as sharing articles and editorials about writing. I’ll propose writing exercises as well – what’s the point of learning something if you can’t practice it. Practice is a way of making something permanent, and writing is no different.
I’ll be back next week with something writing related I think you’ll like, and I hope you will discuss it with me.

I found another blog to share!! This one is a travel blog with some incredible pictures and lovely stories!! I have added a couple of places to my personal bucket list of places to visit just because of some of the amazing photography!
The blog is called Endless Roaming, and it’s blogger is David King from Australia! Check it out and let me know what you think! Better yet, tell the author what you think of his blog!!

I don’t know how some people do it – make snappy titles for their blog posts. Me, I’m like, what the hell do I call this post? Book review posts are no brainers, as are review posts for movies and television shows. I can just do Personal Update and the date for updating you on my life since I last wrote an update – another no brainer really.
But how about for a post like this one? Or like the one I wrote about the almost surreal walk home I had last week? Titles that catch a reader’s attention. I have issues trying to title my own books, much less my blog posts!
How do you do it – those of you who write blogs? How do you come up with titles?
I guess I’ll just do the best I can while I do more research into the subject – there’s plenty out there I’m sure. Everyone wants to teach everyone how to write a blog and monetize it. Everyone but me. I just like writing, and I don’t care( not really) if I don’t make money from the posts I write.
See you all on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!
I read blogs as often as I can. I have email notifications set up so I can read them in my email feed rather than jumping around to all the blog sites they come from – I just don’t have the kind of time any more. Anyway, I am a long time reader and admirer of J. Money the blogger of Budgets Are Sexy. Just the name of the blog is enough to make you want to take a peek – yeah?
Well not too long ago (like February of this year), he posted an entry with the title: Why I Am Obsessed With Cemeteries. If that title doesn’t just reach out and grab your attention, I don’t know what would.
Reading the title had me wondering what cemeteries had to do with building wealth and learning about finances. So, I clicked on the link and read the whole thing through in one sitting – something I don’t do normally. As usual, the entry was well written, amusing and witty as well as full of interesting things.
After reading the entry, I did something I do very very rarely: I contacted J. Money via email and asked him for permission to share his blog entry. I don’t usually share other people’s blog entries because most of them I just hit “Like” and other people can go to the entry on their own. This time, it was different. I was so taken by the entry I had to share the link via my own blog in the hopes all my readers and anyone who wanders past, would go read the entry for themselves.
The title of the entry again is: Why I Am Obsessed With Cemeteries. If you like this entry please, let me and J. Money know!
