March 1 is National Peanut Butter Day

Don’t you think it is funny how there is a national day for everything? I do. But I do think it is cool to have a national peanut butter day. I am a true aficionado. I loooooooooooove peanut butter. I love every variety even the kind with jelly already in it. So in honor of National Peanut Butter Day, let me write a poem which is befitting such an event. Dear creamy concoction that I love so well your peanutty taste and your rich odorous smell lives long in my heart as a matter of taste that no one should

Day 11- Work to do

Day 12 of my 25 Day Challenge (find out why I am doing this here) So, on Sunday, Day 11 of this challenge, I spent a lot of time doing things.

This is because if we don’t, we will never be seen or heard thanks to the MAGNITUDE of content being driven into the face of every consumer. niko.chan / Foter / CC BY-NC-ND It occurred to me that I tweet out on Friday a Follow Friday thing, (#FF) and send it out to

3 Ways We Fail Readers in Our Work

Likewise,the writer will, on their end, agree to give the reader something for their time–a story, an idea, a way to look at the world. DUH! But sometimes we don’t quite hit our mark, and we end up failing the agreement with our reader and well, this is a bad thing.
