One of Those Days

Let me start by saying this isn’t one of my pre-scheduled, neat and tidy, organized and helpful blog posts.  So forgive me just this once and I promise tomorrow we’ll get back to the awesome stuff.

We all have those days right? The kind where we burn the toast, stub our toes, get bad news then accidentally delete our websites, get a migraine and lunch doesn’t stay down? Yeah… TMI, but it’s been one of those around here. If you tried to visit earlier and got a blank page or error message I apologize and thank you for coming back. :) I was attempting to fix an issue unrelated to my blog and ended up taking my entire site offline. Good thing I’m crazy about backing things up!

But I’m not letting it keep me from making a post today. Can’t let the Ultimate Blog Challenge participants think I’m slacking off.

I spent much of my weekend finishing up the Ezine Articles challenge to write 100 hundreds articles in 100 days. I did it. But I didn’t keep up and ended up writing almost 40 of them within the last 48 hours before the deadline. Oops. I suppose it goes to show even when it looks like a lost cause, with determination you can beat the odds.  So, don’t give up!  You, too, can earn that third Ezine Articles coffee mug you’ve been obsessed with adding to your collection… accomplish whatever you’re striving to reach.

And tell the bad day to buzz off.  End of rant/pep talk.  Whew.

Coming up this week on my blog I’m going to share a series of post about Twitter and how you can use it to more effectively to connect with people and build your reach.  If you aren’t signed up yet, you might want to subscribe to the RSS feed so you don’t miss any of the posts.

I’ve also got some cool giveaways coming very soon that you’ll want to watch for.  So, stick around!

  1. Good to see you made it through your bad day.

    We all bump up against problems, it is called life. It is the ability to figure out how to get through that makes us great.

    Looking forward to your twitter posts.

    1. Thanks Sheila. You’re 100% right.

  2. You know how everyone’s always telling you, “Write a book. Ya gotta write a book!”? Supposed to be some kind of ticket to fame, I hear. Anyway, I’ve had so many days like the one you just described that I bet I’ve got enough (bad day stories) to fill a book!

    One thing is for sure … this, too, shall pass. :)

    So relieved to hear the great “back up” news,

  4. I don’t care even if i miss my targets some time. All I care about is that I am still in the game and I can improve myself in future.

    1. Good perspective, Uzi. Still in the game and just keep improving!
