Daily Prompt: Singin’ in the Rain

bullseye

This is a previous photo I had named Bullseye.

A perfect rainy afternoon. Well, those four words are perfect in and of themselves.

When it rains I prefer to have a window open so the raw smells fill my house. This allows the sounds of birds and raindrops, hopefully the odd thunder-clap, as well. The best rain is warm. It would be the shower that puts the world in a darkness apart from occasional light breaks.

Now that scene has been set…
Candles, pillows and sweet drinks; whether it be tea, chocolate milk or smoothies. Crunchy snacks.
Perfection would be cuddling with my daughter and husband reading or talking. After a few good books it would be wonderful to browse through photos.
I always seem to need a bit of organizing or project finishing being done when it rains. It feels much more rewarding while it rains. An unexplainable release of creative juices that I can’t allow going to waste.

After cooking together nearby the open window then eating a light satisfying meal, grilled chicken breast on a huge salad comes to mind, we would go out onto the covered front porch and just watch the rain with a glass of wine. Most likely my camera would be present.

After my daughter has gone to bed I would finish a perfect rainy day with my husband as we watch a movie on the couch; with candles, munchies and the windows open as the dog lies at our feet.

Tomorrow is meant to thunderstorm all day and I am going to do some baking and listen to music that I have been missing. Since it is Fathers Day, our meal will be steak and lobster tail. I wish I had bought some ice wine..

Daily Prompt: Goals

When you started your blog, did you set any goals?
In starting my blog I was new to the Social Media world. I did not have Facebook, twitter or Google accounts.
So, my first goal was to research and learn as much as I could about how to use it and how they all connect.
Another goal I set was to commit to writing a little bit towards posts 2 days per week to result in at least one post per week.
My final goal was to reach 50 followers. This was a number I would use to gauge when to sign up for my own domain and hosting so I could branch out into having ads and promoting people and products.

I want to take a moment to thank my followers for faithfully liking and commenting on my blog. It is so encouraging, humbling and heart warming to know that people want to know every time I post so they can see what I have to say. I am officially addicted to you and making my blog fabulously interesting.

Have you achieved them?
I have achieved all of these goals with the exception of owning my domain…

Have they changed at all?
I have ‘upped the anti’, so to speak. My new goals are as follows:

1} Start hosting with Bluehost and import all my content to new site. Hopefully I don’t mess it up, wish me luck… Anyone know if I have to backup my site and to where, or how to find them again!?

2} Apply some techniques to get more traffic with better tags, frequent conversation on my new twitter account and finding even more great blogs to chat with.

3} Treat my blog like a job in the sense that I will sit down for a predetermined timeframe every day to write, read, search and research. I would like to do 30 minutes, to start. This decision was made, in part, as an attempt to post more frequent, quality content.

4} By October I would like to enable ads and start promoting products/businesses/people.

Well, now it’s official. I have published my goals. It becomes much more crucial or perhaps concrete when you tell someone a plan.

Good luck with your goals!
