I shared a post last week, from the blog A.M. Bradley. The post has fantastic tips to help grow your blog. If you haven’t read it – check it out here.
The first tip really whipped me into a panic. It says to post 1-2 times a day.
A day? What?
Whether or not you agree with that statement – here is my dilemma.
I have always steered clear from leaping into the 21st century. I am always behind the times with the latest gadgets. Pen and paper are my preferred method of writing. I loved stationary when I was younger – still do. I had quite the addiction as a child. I love getting cards or handwritten letters – in fancy penmanship. Most of them I have saved and I can’t accidentally delete them into the unknown.
Exhibit #1 – 4th grade birthday card from the class.
A television show in the 70’s – Big Blue Marble – was a favorite of mine. The show would assign random pen pals, if you sent in a request. So many friends from around the globe. So many stamps purchased. (Shout out to Joy – from the Philippines and Naomi – from California)
I miss those simple days. I avoided social media for so long.
It made absolutely no sense to me, when my husband wanted a 60″ flat-screen, smart TV. Don’t be silly. Our 25″ box TV works just fine.
I have needed a newer vehicle for quite some time. When my husband brings up the topic – My question is always the same, “Where will I listen to my Joan Jett cassette tapes?”
My sister, who lives over a 1,000 miles away, suggested I get an iPhone. “It will be so much fun!” – she squealed. The first thing out of my mouth was “Who are we now – The Jetsons??
I enjoy reading many blogs, but I know I can’t post 1-2 posts a day. Not with my methods. I admire the creative content, so many bloggers post daily. I am thrilled to post 1-2 posts a month. I shared two posts by fellow bloggers this month – this is the first post I actually sat down to write. I like to do my first draft on paper. Sometimes I choose chalk.
Although, I usually get distracted by drawing a flower, a rainbow or hopscotch court.
My intention for today was to get a jump start on my second post for the month. Mother Nature has other plans. The clouds are rolling in and the sky has turned dark. Production has been hindered – yet again.
Back to the computer I go.
Maybe, I should send out my posts via smoke signals. It seems to be the logical choice.
Note: If you are wondering – my husband and I no longer smoke cigarettes.
If anyone is looking for me, I will be watching my collection of I Love Lucy – on my VCR. Thanks for reading!

Do you miss the simple days of yesteryear?
Should I send my next post – via carrier pigeon – to the line you are standing in, while waiting for the latest and greatest device? Let me know in the comments!
