Since I am new to blogging, I started by looking at the ‘Blog Challenge Survival Guide’ in the beginner section. My gosh there are so many resources to check out. If you are new to blogging, like me, this is the place that can help! I then decided to read and share ‘Creating the (Physical and Mental) Space to Write’ by Cheri Lucas Rowlands https://dailypost.wordpress.com/2016/02/24/creating-the-physical-and-mental-space-to-write/
She discusses the importance of having a meaningful area to blog in as well as getting into a blogging state of mind. Cheri, at the end of the blog asks, ‘How about you? Where do you blog? What do you need?’
My answer to these questions are as follows: I blog in my living room, on my overstuffed, comfy maroon couch with one or more of my kitties trying to get my attention. I don’t need anything special, just a ‘nudge’, some forethought, my tablet, and my typing finger. This could change down the line, but for now that is all I need. Now it is your turn…☺☺☺
My challenge to you is, what would you do with it and why? I know this is kind of lame, but, it does make you think and prioritize what is important to you.
Me? I would take half and bank part and invest for the future. I am disabled and do not have a 401k or retirement. So, saving/investing is vital to my future survival. I then would bring my 1930s home up to date to pass required inspections(~50K). We would upgrade our 2010 Dodge Ram (~30Kw/trade-in). Complete our death plannings (~16K). Then take 100K to share with family members. Then 80K would go for my son’s college tuition. This would leave 224K. This money would be split in half, one half going to St. Judes Children’s Hospital and the other half going to Shriner’s Hospital…no explaination needed for these two.
So, this is what I would do….how about you?
I have been having big time problems with no internet for past 10 days as well as blog problems. I tried to set up a FB blog and ended up paying to boost my first post, then it wouldn’t post anymore unlesss I kept paying. Lesson learned! I am now trying the free blog from Searchpress. I have never had a blog before so I am clueless! So, I hope this works so I can become part of this fantastic blog. My internet was fixed yesterday so I am back, and sooo happy. I missed reading everyone’s posts. Once again, I am sorry that there has only been 1 post from me, but FB was holding my posts hostage, lol. I will be trying today’s post if this message comes out ok.
