A Dog in a Hat and Check-In

Yes, I did just resort to silly naming tricks for clicks.

ROW80 Rundown:

1. Write 500 words per day on any project.
Didn't get much done because I took some time out to celebrate my twin sister and brother's birthday. Just the girls went out to dinner and my bother took a nap. It's ok, he would have not been amused at the banter between myself, the server and his twin. The only picture I remembered to take was of my sister's best friend holding our other sister's dog. I probably should have planned that better.

2. Blog at least every Wednesday and Sunday.
I'm looking for new and creative ways to say, "Yay, I met this goal!" Any suggestions? Though, this is like blog light and it's slogan shall be: All the time invested and half the content.

3. Check out at least 10 posts from each new ROW80 linky before the next one comes out.
I was able to make it to 10 posts from ROW80 and a few from IWSG, but I wasn't able to make many comments. For some reason almost every page seems to stop responding shortly after loading when viewed on my phone. The common factor seems to be that my phone will become extremely hot very quickly since I dropped it again. It is probably time for a new phone or at least a new battery.

4. Use Twitter at least once per day.
Now that my initial obsession with Twitter is waning I find that Saturday's are the hardest for me to remember to tweet.

5. Post on my author Facebook page at least 2 times per week.
After lowering the goal to 2 times a week I am feeling a lot less stress. Well, at least as far as the author page is concerned.

6. Read 1 book per week.
This is still not happening. I downloaded a ton of "new" books from Project Gutenberg's Top 100 List. Of course it occurs to me now that I could have used that time to be reading.


  1. Sounds like you're doing really well overall and a little time away to spend with family and friends never hurt anyone :)

    Of course, now that you've shared that Project Gutenberg link I think that I too shall be spending most of the day downloading "new" books. Thanks so much :P :)

    Best for the coming week!

  2. Yep, “dogs wearing hats” gets me clicking links every time (as does “kittens playing with string”, for future reference). It looks like that “wizard hat” has imbued magical powers into her eyes.

    1. I was thinking the same thing. I almost edited the picture, but thought the shining eyes went with the magic theme of my book better.

  3. If you can't take any time to party for a birthday you may be a workaholic...all is in perspective

    1. We had a great time and it was very relaxing. Yay for perspective.

  4. You're making progress, and that matters. You spent time with family, and that matters, too.

    As for goals met, I like to color code my goals - red for those I haven't met, green for those in progress, and blue with overstrike for those I've met (because blue is my favorite color).

    It's fun and cheery, and, better yet, I can see at a glance where I am with everything.

    I go through spells of reading nothing and others of reading a lot. I don't seem to be good at reading and writing lots at the same time.

    1. I never thought about that. I am not sure I do the reading and writhing thing at the same time either. Now that you mention it I will have to watch that and see how it goes. Thanks for stopping by.
