Have you ever looked at your blog posts and wondered what influenced your writing style? My high school English teacher and dad would be horrified that I’m writing a blog. I liked English, but not the grammar part. I really couldn’t care less about verbs, nouns, semicolons, etc. Now I love to read and read a ton.
I do notice my sentences are quite choppy and short. I think that’s how I think. I’m always thinking and inventing new things in my head and I sometimes can’t keep up writing what I’m thinking. I try to make my sentences longer, but most times I’m like oh well that’s the way I write.
I have a Bachelor degree so that means 4 years of university. I had to write a lot of papers/essays and always had to find research articles. The motto was “for every fact you state you need 5 articles that back up your fact”. That’s why I include a lot of links, I’m backing up my facts and I love to read. Maybe there’s others out there who also love reading and learning new things.
Yup, that’s what influences my writing. In short: I don’t like grammar, I love to read, and I feel the need to back up my facts.
Huh? What? VID, what is that? I’ve hear of VIP: very important people/person, but VID. VID is very important dates. The human has issues remember things and writing things down on a paper is easy, but the paper can get lost. So the VID’s are going on the blog.

Now I do have a confession to make I don’t know when my cats were born or adopted. Told you I had a very bad memory, lol. I do know what month and year they were born and adopted so I just picked a date that seemed rational. Eddie I got at around 3 weeks and Java joined 3 weeks later. Dac I got in Oct., but I can’t remember if I got her before my parent’s Agritourism business closed for the season or the weekend before. Oh, well I have dates now and I’ll just go with that, lol.
If someone who had been in a coma in 1980 woke up today they would be thoroughly lost in our world. People are tweeting, liking, snapping, blogging, yada yada…….. It’s so confusing and can be overwhelming. I would recommend that a person blog (if they have one), use facebook, and instagram. If you’re low on time I would suggest just blogging and using instagram.
Personally I’m all over the board. I do the social media for my parents seasonal business, my hobby, and paws4moment. That equates to:
4 Facebook pages
2 Tumblr pages
4 blogs (2 active and 2 inactive)
2 instagram accounts
2 Google Plus accounts
I don’t tweet, nor will I ever tweet. I don’t understand Twitter and I don’t care to understand Twitter, lol. I find Google Plus to be pointless so I have abandoned my two accounts. I use Tumblr passively, in that my blog posts and instagram posts get automatically get posted on the site. Other than that I don’t do anything on Tumblr. There are a ton of social media sites out there and here is a link if your interested in seeing how many there are: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_social_networking_websites
Personally I love instagram and am always checking instagram. I also like my blog. I have thought of starting a facebook page for paws4moment, but that would be too much.
I’ve been blogging for a year now. While, to be totally honest, I guess its been more like six-months. With all my laptop issues and my summers being crazy (a 4 acre garden/pumpkin patch and canning 1000 jars) posting posts has been hard. But my new year’s resolution is to post every Mon-Wed-Fri so……………
I’m not sure how many pictures I have of my cats, but it is in the thousands, if not tens of thousands. I usually take 10 pictures of the same pose and than never delete the bad ones. Going through my pictures I have double the pictures of Dac, compared to Eddie and Java. I have very few pictures of Java as she is my shy diva.
At a family gathering someone asked “So did you get some nice pictures of everyone?”. I smiled and said “No. I only take pictures of animals and scenary”. The person said “Aren’t some humans animals?”. Hmmm, got to ponder that one.
Every once in a while I go through my pictures and try to sort them. It’s not an easy task and takes a while, but I love looking at pictures of my cats. I hope you enjoy the pictures I post of my cats.
Simple math: an average of 10 pics a day times 365 days of the year equals 3650 times 3 (how old my kitties are) equals 10, 950 pictures. Yeah, I’m a tad crazy, lol.
This week is mirror and I counted I have 3 mirrors in my place and another bizarre fact I have no pictures up of humans in my place. I’m a nature and animal type of person. Also I think the last time someone took a picture of me was a year or two ago.
Note: I am looking at other people’s blogs on this blog hop. A lot of blogs don’t have a like button so I can’t show my “like” for your post. Also I have found that some sites I can’t comment. I have tried and after 2 tries I gave up. So I will be a ghost and float around and read blogs. Sorry I can’t show my appreciation and “like” of your posts.
Wow!! Everything is a mess on here, lol. Time to fix everything and start regularly blogging. Not having a computer for 7 months, canning over 1000 jars in 3 months, tending a 1 acre market garden, and 3 acre pumpkin patch makes life a little furry. But I’m back……
