Technical Difficulties

Today has been a day of frustration and hair pulling. For some reason I can’t attach images to my posts from the android app for WordPress. I’ve been trying to figure out the problem for hours with no success. Unfortunately, as many of you know, I don’t have a pc. I post exclusively from my Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant. After pretty near two years of writing and editing my blog from this app, this is the first time it’s failed me.

I’m planning to try to work it out over weekend. In the meantime, please forgive the absence of a post today. I have one written… But what’s a blog like mine without pictures?

I hope you all have lovely weekend! Hopefully (fingers crossed), I’ll catch you all on Monday with a complete post.

An Unexpected Post

I’ve been sick since last Monday with the kind of cold that I would not wish on an enemy. Seriously, that bad… I’m starting to turn the corner into recovery, however, and I’m more glad to be able to say that than I can express!

My motivation to write on ye olde blog, as a result of all that, has been lower than low. So, and I’m sure you’ve noticed, my posting has been even more sporadic than usual.

I have ideas that I spend hours gathering links and images for, checking over my text for typos (only moderately successful with that part), and generally agonizing over posts, though sometimes it may not seem like it. I write this blog, edit pictures, gather links, and post all from my smartphone. I don’t have a computer. I know, amazing in this day and age… but true! Blogging from my phone full time isn’t an easy prospect even when I’m 100% on my game. But I keep going because I’m trying to find my voice for a subject I love. Because I’d rather do it than not. Because I know that I have something inside me that has to come out even if I occasionally (or, rather frequently) trip over my own feet.

I’m growing and learning through this process. Even when I fall (and believe me I have) I make myself get up and keep going on… even with the limits on my tools and my time. And usually, not always but usually, something good happens that feels like a little reward for my perseverance.

Thank you, for reading along, whether you’re stopping by for a particular post or a regular reader. I appreciate you, your support and your patience while I go through my growing pains.
