Today, not only will I take you through a step by step guide on how to reblog a post, but I’ll also cover some of the pitfalls of reblogging. For the purpose of this post, and because I use WordPress, some of this information will only be relevant to WordPress users.
Of course, the first thing we need to do is find a blog post that we want to reblog. Usually, this will be a post that you have thoroughly enjoyed reading and/or will have left a comment on. However, some bloggers use reblogging to promote other bloggers, authors, writers, books, etc.
At the bottom of a post are the sharing buttons a blogger has added to their…
I’ve watched the show The Handmaid’s Tale. I read the book. It was one of those I couldn’t, couldn’t put down. It was incredibly addictive…and terrifying. I had nightmares for two days after I started reading the book…and this week, the absolutely horrible attacks on Manchester haven’t helped.
The book is terrifying because it seems like our world is only steps away from making it come reality and not fiction. It’s also terrifying because all of the things in it have already happened at some point in history, so none can be denied with a ‘that’ll never happen’ sort of comment.
But, as always, words fail me when I think of the great parts of the book and movie. And, then I saw this post that puts into words some of the things my little brain couldn’t. I absolutely loved it. Big thanks to Part Time Monster for that wonderful read.
Last week, as I was watching “A Woman’s Place,” the sixth episode of Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, I was struck with a realization: I had not watched a single episode of the show without flipping through the social media feeds on my phone or my laptop simultaneously. So I started to think […]

This has been one of those crazy busy weeks with happenings, some lots of fun, and good, and some very not. So It was amazing to, about twenty minutes ago, pull into the driveway at The Inn*.
The crunch of the gravel drive, the wind off the water causing the ancient tree branches to arch and sway… John said he’d get the dogs out of the back (Marshal insisting he needed out right now!) and I could just head in, turn up the heat and make fires in the fireplaces. All of this sounded so good… until.
Until it was twelve degrees.
But not your average twelve degrees in, like, a normal place.
Twelve salt-water enhanced degrees on the coast of Maine where, I might add, we had nearly spring-like temperatures less than a week ago!
If we were having coffee I’d ask you what you did for New Years and if you have already seen the Mariah Carey fiasco where she storms off the stage.
I’d ask you if you made any New Year’s resolutions and what they are. Personally, I never make them because I tend to break them faster than I can say them. But I do have the intention of writing…just what is up in the air. And to exercise more. That’s always important.
Then again, you might still be recuperating from the festivities of the past few days, and the last thing you want to do is chat.
What about that cup of coffee? It does wonders for my headaches 🙂
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that my hubby is away for the weekend at a therapists’ conference. They’re doing something like psychodrama…I think. Whatever it is, he’s delighted to go and I’m alone with our two fluffy pooches this weekend.
I’d share that post-election around here, in Canada, we’re still pretty stunned at the results and continue to watch our TV’s in disbelief. I’m hoping that the new President, no matter how surprising his election, will help the US prosper and the world get to a better place. He’s certainly making changes already.
I’d tell you that I’m suddenly cooking. It’s something very new to me and it has surprised everyone who knows me…including myself. I’m trying vegan dishes and so far, have done a couple that taste awesome. I’d probably share a recipe that works really well for mashed potatoes and cauliflower…but you’d probably get up to get a coffee refill just to avoid that subject.
Finally, I’d drink my coffee. With a cup in hand, I can handle just about anything.
We’re back to our regularly scheduled program here at this humble little blog…or what passes for a program. So, expect a regular post on Tuesday, just like always.
However, this does give me the opportunity to ask…is there something you’d like to see more of? Or less of? Something you’re sick of? A topic that, if you see one more time, you’ll stick your head into a toilet and flush? Something you miss or would like to see? Maybe less questions in posts?
Let me know! I’d love to hear it and make you a little happier.
