It’s been 18 days since my last post. I’ve heard people say that if you take an extended absence with posting on your blog, you can lose a ton of readers. I can see that being true. I gained a few followers in 18 days. How awesome is that? In no way do I think I have better things to say than the next writer, but I will say it’s kind of cool to come back to the site and…

Last night, my friend Erin shared something on Facebook that was pretty awesome. Not only for the fact that the story was awesome, but it also gave me a post idea for the weekly prompt at Studio30 Plus. So…double awesome. “I let Maxine stay up to watch The Empire Strikes Back in her room. I just heard her yell, “Holy Cwap! Darf Vadar is Luke’s Fadder!” It’s neat that she’s just learning that. Another Star Wars fan.” Now I totally…

Turns out one of my posts is being featured at a couple places. The post “Wishing” is taking up space at Indie Ink and also Schmutzie’s Five Star Friday. For me, it’s one thing to write something and think it’s good enough for your own space. To have others read it and want more people read it… kind of a cool thing. So thank you guys at Indie Ink and to you Schmutzie. I might get a handle on this…

It seems I’ve hit the Featured Writer circuit the past few days and today is no different. Today I’m over at Andy’s place Crazy With a Side Of Awesome Sauce. She needed a post for her Sexy Saturdays series and wanted a male perspective. I mean, I’ll give it a shot, right? Andy is a new friend that continues to amaze me with her writing and her willingness to help me create an HTML box if needed. That is a…

It’s amazing who you might get to know through blogging. People you would never know anything about are suddenly your friends who you like with lives you begin to care for. It would be impossible to meet everyone you connect to through blogging. But just think a minute…how cool that would be? Or how scary it might be? I have actually met a few people since starting the blogging thing that in normal life circumstances I would never have met.…

That header you see up there is a special one. A few weeks ago I asked Becky to make me something. I think she is amazing so I knew she would come up with something awesome. She asked me what I wanted on there. I suggested some things and something that is random and all her idea. She also had to put ‘mylittlebecky’ on it. So she created spaghetti and meatballs in the LION bowl. And a beard with sunglasses…perfect.…

It was late. We were just driving around…just to drive around. I had a small drive ahead of me but wasn’t sure I wanted to leave just yet. We drove to a park because she had something to show me. We stopped and began to take a walk. It was freezing. There was a big pond ahead that helped this cold bitter wind cut through my coat like it was nothing. We keep walking and I see this small dock…

Something new at Studio30 Plus. Every week we give out a writing prompt. One word to inspire a blog post, however you want to create it. This week, the word is concrete. Life is full of concrete. Those moments when you crash into it with full force. Smashing into it. Concrete doesn’t budge. It’s unforgiving at best. Concrete is final. You know exactly when you hit it. Concrete is impassable. It’s also a refuge. It’s a platform to rest upon.…

It was embarrassing to admit to her that I had never had a crab cake before.  The fact that I am from the middle of the country, you can understand how that could be possible.  She assured me that I would like it, that the crab was more than likely caught just a few hours ago.  Fresh.  The middle of the country feasts on frozen or…gasp…imitation crab.  She assured me that seafood in DC/Georgetown was amazing.  Knowing myself, I was skeptical. …
