Blogging Insights — Looking Ahead

For her weekly Blogging Insights prompts, Dr. Tanya provides us with a quote about blogging or writing and asks us to express our opinion about said quote. However, this week she is interested in finding out if we are planning any changes to our blog. Specifically, she’s asking us to…

…share our HOPES for our blog in 2022 as well as our REGRETS (if any).

Actually, I’m pretty happy with my blog the way it is, and my philosophy is, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” So I have no specific hopes for my blog other than to continue blogging.

That said, let me ask you all a question. You may answer from the perspectives of appearance, content, frequency, or whatever occurs to you. So here’s my question.

What changes, if any, would you encourage me to make to my blog in 2022 in order for you to have a better experience reading my posts?

Thanks for your feedback.

SoCS — Regrets

If only
If only I had
If only I had said yes instead of no
I only I had look ahead instead of back
If only I had done this instead of that
If only I had listened to you instead of to them
If only I had gone away instead of staying here
If only I had moved on instead of waiting around
If only I had believed in myself instead of doubting
If only I had lived my dreams instead of denying them
If only I had
If only

Share Your World — 7/12/21

Here we go with another episode of Melanie’s Share Your World. This week Melanie is giving us three rather silly questions and one philosophical one.

What would be much better if you could just change the color of it?

The color of an object is what it is and I don’t think changing the color of said object would, in and of itself, make it better or worse. That said, there’s a house in my neighborhood that is painted Day-Glo yellow…

Do you think cats have any regrets?

Do cats have regrets? Nope, not a chance. Well, at least not my cat.

Do you ever count your steps when you walk?

When I used to walk our dog I would occasionally count my steps. But our dog is now gone and the only steps I count these days are what steps I’m at in my 12-step program.

Is there a supreme power?

Yes. Me. I am the supreme power because without me, nothing would exist. I explained it all in this post, should you be interested in understanding what I mean.

Now I have a question for Melanie. Which are the silly questions and which is the philosophical one?

Fandango’s Provocative Question #122


Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.

By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.

What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.

Lucille Ball, the American actress and comedian, was quoted as saying…

“I’d rather regret the things I’ve done than regret the things I haven’t done.”

For this week’s provocative question I’m going to ask you to think back upon the life you’ve lived so far. And as you do so, consider this week’s question:

What is your biggest regret in life?

If you choose to participate, write a post with your response to the question. Once you are done, tag your post with #FPQ and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments. But remember to check to confirm that your pingback or your link shows up in the comments.
