Post #21 post2011 Challenge Links/Tags

January 20, 2011 5 comments This is my friend Cheril and you will love her site.

Today is January 20th and I just got home from work.  I have copied, pasted, read, subscribed and “liked” the above posts for the post2011 challenge.  It amazes me that everyone posts on the “main page” to Scott (who created postaday2011 challenge); but the bloggers are not doing what I do.  Okay maybe I am desperate but I love to read and learn from others so checking out each blog interests me.  What I don’t get is that everyone seems to have the same exact problem of not getting subscribers or “likes” or stuff like that.  I write for the fun of it and the challenge to see if I can actually post “a day” and meet that challenge for 2011.  That is just me, a person who loves a challenge.  It would seem to me that everyone on this challenge obviously loves the challenge as well.  I would love to hear comments of how it is going with the other bloggers on this challenge if you so desire to do so.  Have a great blogging day and week and I will post tomorrow as promised.

Hey, this is Luciano from Litemind~A site you need to see!
Imagine you have some important work to do at the computer. I bet you know the drill: you sit down to get it done… but then resistance kicks in. You want to check that last email (“just this one, really!”). And then you go for that last news check (“quickly, I promise!”). And Facebook. And Twitter… You know how this story ends: suddenly, your day is gone.

It happens too often, doesn’t it?

To avoid that problem, one trick that works really well for me is to set the ‘start page’ (or ‘home page’) in my browser to a page that reminds me to focus on what I should really be doing.
Every time I open the browser, I have an extra checkpoint — yet another chance — to escape from automatic behaviors that could sidetrack me.

To understand exactly what I mean, check the start page I use:


Granted, sometimes the urge to procrastinate wins regardless, but this saves me from getting sidetracked almost every day. The advice on the byline is just too wise to ignore — the reason it works so well for me is because it reminds me it’s all about choices, not about forcing myself to work.

If you like the idea of having a “focus start page” and don’t want to create your own, feel free to use the one I created. You can even steal it and save it locally to a folder on your computer so that it loads even faster.


Here it is again:


Anyway, as this works really well for me, I figured it could help you as well. 🙂
If you try it, let me know how it goes!

All the best,

I think a weekly photo topic idea would be great!

Ana Félix Pires | January 19, 2011 at 1:22 pm | Reply
It sounds much trickier to come up with broad photo topics that’ll work for so many people, I’d be really curious to see what you’d come up with.

Ashley Pariseau | January 19, 2011 at 1:26 pm | Reply
That would be pretty awesome!

What a thoughtful idea, and yes, I could use the assistance during our darker winter months in Alaska. Thanks!

Charles Wolff | January 19, 2011 at 1:32 pm | Reply
I think that would be a pretty good idea. You could see and compare each persons perspective on the subject which may inspire you to think a different way or view things in a different light.

I’d love to give it a go, cool idea *thumbs up*

What a great idea!!

Hey, not a great poll… I didn’t care for the second option… I love photos and am posting some regularly but I would prefer a bonus writing topic… So while I voted “No” it isn’t because I hate photos….

Debra Ham | January 19, 2011 at 1:43 pm | Reply
Yes, I think that this will be very helpful! I am a photographer and I think it would be totally worth it.

This idea would be totally AWESOMEEEEE!

a photo topic would be great.

I think a photo topic a week is a great idea. I really need to pretty up my blog as it is mostly all text at the moment! Go for it!

It’d be great if people post their OWN photos here then to save people like me the headache of wondering which image was copyright infringed today. If there will be photographs posted, people need to make sure that they actually abide by federal copyright laws, fair use, creative commons etc. Just hoping that this topic doesn’t open a can of worms for photographers. Gotta look out for my peeps.

I blog photographs but not on WordPress, on Blogger. My blog here for the daily post has different subject matter so I don’t think I will be doing the photo topics as a part of the daily post challenge here.

Ana Félix Pires | January 19, 2011 at 2:25 pm | Reply
I didn’t think of that but I could definitely see it happening now that you mentioned it. Hopefully there’d be some encouragement to share your own pictures, not just something you find through Google.

Trudy | January 19, 2011 at 3:17 pm |
Correct. Because you cannot “find” an image in Google. Google indexes anything on the web. However, Google itself does not remove copyright from images.

I hope people share there own. Besides that is more interesting anyway as it will be relevant to their own lives.

Alexy Saltekoff | January 19, 2011 at 2:17 pm | Reply
I really hope I get the whole week to work on it so I can put it off to the last minute and rush to get it done. Photographer, know thyself. I was actually looking at doing a 365 of pictures as well as posts earlier today.

Angeline M | January 19, 2011 at 2:19 pm | Reply
I love this idea. I love posting with photos on other sites but never have on WordPress….I think I may need to learn how to upload photos onto WP, so all in all this would widen my horizens even more! Great idea.

The Onyx Plate | January 19, 2011 at 2:20 pm | Reply
I think that sounds great! I already photoblog with my recipes…so, a little extra something wouldn’t be bad at all!

That would be so awesome! Great way to add variety to the things.

keisen | January 19, 2011 at 2:56 pm | Reply
If The Daily Post would post a photo as a topic, and let people riff on it, that’d be a great additional way of incorporating those that don’t want to post a photo.

Trudy | January 19, 2011 at 3:18 pm | Reply
Now that could be great. Post one image and people create a topic from that image. A picture is worth 1000 words we should easily be able to blog 250-500 from one LOL!

I am happy with topics or a photo! Looks like Photo’s are a winner by the vote counts.

I would like to have a challenge of some sort. It might prove interesting.

I already post my, somewhat artistic, photos on my blog and have a specific page for it and enjoy doing it so much, but I would like more ideas of things so snap! That would be cool

Oh that’s a good idea

This would be a great idea – and fit the theme of my blog!

I think it is a great idea! I would welcome the direction otherwise I ramble rubbish & as I enjoy taking pics would give me a project…

Blockader | January 19, 2011 at 4:16 pm | Reply
Yes suggestions would be good, otherwise I’ll just have to post more pictures of me…. and nobody wants that.

I would like to see this. A couple of years ago, I did a short photography course. After every class we could be given a topic for a photo we would take to show at next week’s class (e.g. self portrait, light ect…). Although the topics were simple, they really inspired me to actually go outside and take photos. For me, this was the real value of the course… been given inspiration and knowing that at next weeks class I would be able to share my photos with everyone else. Without it (as was the case before and is the case now), I would not have bothered to take any photos.

So yes, a good idea.

Katharine Trauger | January 19, 2011 at 5:13 pm | Reply
Yes. I think the photo inspirations would bleed over into writing inpirations. And how fun to see all our creativity manifesting in totally diverse ways, as I imagine it will! Go for it. Great idea.

yes please!

Andrew | January 19, 2011 at 6:01 pm | Reply
Is it possible to potentially have a weekly topic that can either be written about, or photographed? Having both would be a great idea!

simplepleasuresbooks | January 19, 2011 at 6:25 pm | Reply
Sounds like a great idea to me. If a picture is worth a thousand words… well you see where I’m going here?

Sounds interesting to me. Although I’m having a hard time with the writing one blog a week challenge!

Topic # 11 What do you want to be remembered for?

January 10, 2011 2 comments

Topic #11

What do you want to be remembered for? I really try to live each day thankful that I can get up once again and “glorify God.”  Each day I have is a gift from Him and I start each day with a “clean Slate.”  It is not easy to think in terms of what others will remember me for as I am “living now.”  I live in the present moment and try not to live in the past or future.  Here are some qualities I have that I wanted to share with you:

You are the kind of person who is likely to enjoy being methodical, conscientious, and efficient.

You enjoy work where you have to set a high standard for yourself and for others.

You take pride in your accuracy and in your ability to pay attention to the details.

You also enjoy ideas, theories, and researching.

You will enjoy work environments that are structured, ordered and well-organized.

You will enjoy work that allows you to deal with numbers, data processing and record management.

You will enjoy the computer based aspects of most work situations.

You will also enjoy occupations that have an intellectual aspect to them.

You have a unique set of interests and deserve a career that expresses your uniqueness.



I am posting every day in 2011!

I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now.  I will be posting on this blog once a day / once a week for all of 2011.

I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.
