Join the #Blessed Project!

It’s been a Wild month and the holidays are upon us. How did that happen? It can be hard to switch gears from stressed-out to happy guest or entertainer right before Thanksgiving. Compounded by worry and lack of sleep, our usual energy may be zapped. We may feel far from blessed.

I have a solution for you! Sometime between now and December 18th take a break and make a blessed project list. This will remind you of what makes you happy. We can only think about one thing at a time, so this project should hip-check negative thoughts out of your cranium for a while. Endorphins will fill the space. Can you feel it?

Your post can be as long or short as you like. It’s your Blessed Project.

Time is a commodity and I don’t want to add to your stress level. If you get into it, take as much time as you want. Include photos, videos, artwork. Or keep it simple and only write a list. You can easily jot down the first few things that come to mind. Done.

There is no right or wrong.

Ask your family why they feel blessed. It could be a sparkly distraction if things get tense over Thanksgiving break. Remember, we can only focus one thing at a time.

  1. Write a #Blessed Project article and post it on your blog.
  2. Include a link to this post. Spread the positivity!
  3. Paste your link in the comment section below by Saturday, December 17th.
  4. Stop back anytime to read other posts. You know the drill. Tell them “Susie sent me from the Blessed Project,” and they should click back to your place.

BONUS! On December 19th, I’ll blog the list of #Blessed Projects pasted in the comments, to reach out to more readers.

Here’s the start of my list. I’m sure it will grow with updates throughout the season.

I felt blessed to ski in Breckenridge with family and friends on opening weekend.

I’m blessed to live in Colorado and

to have found a physical therapist, so I can do this:

There’s nothing like Thanksgiving! #Blessed

I am blessed to be surrounded by friends and family and dogs!

I am blessed for having a partner in adventure

And I am blessed for all of you!

Think about your own blessings. Make a list, post it and then leave your url in the comments. I’d love to link you up in another post in December.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Halloween, Wild Riders. Let the Wild Rumpus Begin…

Happy Halloween, Wild Riders! Let the Wild Rumpus begin. This is one of my favorite holidays. As I write this, I’m watching The Prophecy with Christopher Walken. So creepy! I love it.

I had to came up with a costume for a Halloween Party. I’ll dress tonight as Morticia Addams, but I wanted to be someone or something different. I laughed when I thought of this. I had to be one of the Wild Things from Maurice Sendak’s popular book Where the Wild Things AreDoing the makeup was the best part.

This has been a fun month of Halloween posts starting with 31 Days. To get in Halloween mood click for all kinds of spookiness including a Wild Blog Party. It’s never too late to drop a link and meet my friends!

What are you doing for Halloween? Are you dressing up?

Welcome to the Wild Halloween Bloggers Bash

halloween-blog-party

It’s time.

Welcome to the Breathless Halloween Blog Bash. I’ve been expecting you. The brew bubbling at the bar is filled with an extra punch to get your creative juices flowing… on the stone floor. Finger sandwiches were flown in fresh from the morgue and the delightful music playing is Victor Van Byteurnek’s Rhapsody in Blood. 

Let’s play a little game, shall we?

1. Drop a link to your blog in the comments and leave an enticing hook that penetrates the victim’s soul, if they have one. Watch for unsuspecting prey back at your lair and then feast on their comments on your site.

2. Then come back to play again, only this time you get hooked and click to other baleful blogs.

Here’s Cheat Code just for you: Tell them, “Susie sent me,” and they should click back to your graveyard digs.

Hopefully, you will become tangled in a web of new blogging fiends, I mean followers.

Only leave ONE link per comment or you will plunge into the depths of spam. Its gruesomeness knows no bounds and your comment will be banned forever more…. ever more….ever more….

Use Twitter and Facebook to invite your friends. The more the SCARIER… The party will rage until the bell tolls on All Saints Day, then I’ll retire to my crypt.

Stay hydrated fiends and don’t forget to DANCE!

Need more Halloween fun? How about a true tale of ghostly terror or story about a real Halloween circus to get your heart pumping….

Your Soul has been Summoned…

It’s Halloween weekend. Celebrants will attend festivities for the dead until All Hallows’ Eve. Not to be outdone, the Wild Ride will host a party to haunt you for days to come.

At the break of dawn on Saturday morning, it will begin.

Come, if you dare, and leave a link to your blog. Lure others to your den. Plied with concoctions of witches brew, you will mesmerize the victims with your tales. They won’t notice the sticky web keeping them glued until they subscribe to your blog. Muahahahahaha!

See you Saturday, fiends.

BEWARE of Cyberspace Snake Oil!

Have you been bought?

Seduced by the glitz, the glam, attracting paparazzi like steel filings to a magnet, and for some, the bouffant hairdo their personal stylist creates, many are in a full-out sprint to the top. They don’t care what they have to do to get there. Nothing is comparable to feeling adored and having screaming fans shout out, “We want more! We want more!” They sneeze and fans applaud.

Beware of snake oil salesmen

 

Most of us, like 99.99%, will never experience this. But what if you could buy this feeling?

Would you consider buying people to like you?
