I’ve been tossing a few ideas around in my head. It’s fucking crowded in there, so these may be terrible ideas. It’s hard to tell. I don’t know that any of said ideas will amount to anything. But… since I still feel like I’m not able to write like I used to, I’m trying to find ways to push things along. You know, ways to keep from disappearing before your eyes…

Since I killed Moody Monday, I wanted something new. Not necessarily weekly… I think these would be more like Song of the Day, which I post whenever I feel like it.

not a photographer.
I’m an amateur. I don’t think I take the best pictures. Once in a while I have a winner, but mostly, I wish every shot was better. I thought I might post a picture or two under this title. Maybe over time, I will improve. Oh… and please note that most, if not all, of my pictures are taken with my phone. I have a nice little digital camera, but it’s getting old and I’m not sure it takes better pictures than my current phone…

new designs.
This is kind of obnoxious, but I thought maybe I’d post new designs I create for my shops here. Of course I’d love to get more sales (who wouldn’t?) but I don’t know that this would help. Not really the point. I’d just like to share new designs that I’m proud of… just as I’d share photos or other artwork. Not sure about this idea, though… because it does feel a little too self-promote-y. I haven’t had any inspiration lately anyway so this idea might be useless…

I’ve got a secret.
I think this is my favorite new idea. In fact, if I do this, I will start with #3 because I’ve already shared two secrets… one over two years ago and one a couple of weeks ago. (Well, let’s face it… I’ve shared dozens of secrets… I just didn’t label them as such.) Anyway… I’m sure all the posts wouldn’t be huge earth-shattering secrets. In fact, they may be minor silly ones. But I’m pretty sure I’ll have plenty of material.

That’s all I’ve got at the moment. I wish I had something forΒ Fiction Friday. I’d like to think it’s only a hiatus, but right now, it’s just not happening. I hate it because I know some of you probably only come here for that… and now it’s missing. I’ve got a couple of ideas but that’s all they are right now. So I guess it’s not totally hopeless.


So… maybe I have a few new things coming soon… or maybe I don’t. Or maybe I do.

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  6. I like all three ideas. I still would like to see more photos from you, if for no other reason than getting you out and focusing on something positive. The third one is intriguing though. πŸ˜ƒπŸ€”

  7. Love, love, love.
    I had a friend who wrote a blog for 1 year only. He called it 2015in2015, and wrote about what he was doing at 2015 each evening. Very interesting.
    You could take a photo of where you are, or what you can see, at the same time each day. No need to post them every day, but you would generate a good collection of interesting places and things.

    I loved the links of the various posts.

    From what I read. I think you should go out more :). You say your home all the time maybe that’s whats blocking you. There is only so much you can do in your bubble. Expand it :). Great ideas by the way,I believe your second one would be best. Going that route would probably change your thoughtful blog site into your shops site to expand business and share/receive more from your designs :).

    • I do need to go out more… πŸ™‚ I don’t want to make this blog into something that is mainly for ‘advertising’ my designs, though. If I were to blog for that reason, I’d keep this one personal and have a separate one for ‘business’. It’s just hard because I have followers here… starting a new blog would be starting over, of course!
