Six for Work Six for Play

I am ... Sharing Six Word Saturday ... Hey! That was six words, too! Six Word Saturday (also known as the abbreviated 6WS) is a Saturday blog hop where we are asked to "Describe your life in six words."

Off the JOB for the weekend.
What shall I DO this weekend?
BALANCE work and play this weekend!

Yes! I have the weekend off from my job at Roman's Pizza and Sub Shoppe. I am free to do as I please for two days, hooRAYo! Still, I plan to balance work and play for the weekend. For me, balancing the two is fairly easy as most of my work at home I consider play, too. I so enjoy my online work, so much so that it really is my "me" time, my "play" time, yet I am learning and earning while I work and play. I guess that is one of the differences between a j-o-b and working at home.

Here is my list of ToDos

(Six for work; six for play.)

  1. Publish my Six Word Saturday Post
  2. Create and publish a Squidoo lens
  3. Finish up reading Divide by Zero
  4. Invite YOU to SHARE the LOVE
  5. Make a black bean cabbage stew
  6. Mail a Sunshine Postcard to ... Who?

Now, I am sure I will add a few other things to my ToDo list for the weekend, such as the mundane task of some cleaning of the house or the delightful time set aside to play with my dog. Nonetheless, I will be content to...

Work and play the weekend away!

So tell me...

What will you do this weekend?

Happy New Year with the Flu

Yes, I rang out the old year with a flu bug; thus, ringing in the year of 2013 with a Hot Toddy tuned up Cheers!

The weather here this New Year's Day is frightfully cold at just under 30 degrees, with piles of winter white the view through my storm window. Naturally, my plans for this new year's eve and day had to be cancelled but I will enjoy the rest of 2013 once the flu bug has hobbled away.

My blogging aspirations for the new year are to concentrate on quality, not quantity, and in keeping with that goal I plan to do my best to: 1) bring you unique and original content with my blog posts and 2) leave you quality comments on blog posts you share.

These goals have been set by the many things I have learned about writing on the net this past year and most importantly I have learned that the key to knowledge cannot unlock the door unless what is learned is applied (the turning of the key).

I have learned that original content is essential to good blogging. How we share information is much more important than how much information we share. The same applies to our writing of comments on the work of others. Nice post! and Thanks for sharing! mean little; whereas, Great tips regarding quality of content for blogging in the coming year. shows the author you have not just zipped through the article without reading.

Originality and Optimization mean ever so much more to the writer and the reader, assuring that both are on target with the topic.

What did you learn in the past year that you will be applying to your blogging in the new year?
