Book Squirt

Driving and #DadChat

I’m learning to drive right now, and I recently witnessed a fatal accident. Seeing something like that will drastically change the way you look at things, and now I’m even more cautious behind the wheel.

Since I’ve had that experience, I’ve thought a lot about driving and accidents. When Bruce Sallan from #DadChat talked to me about co-hosting a twitter chat with him, I jumped at the chance to share my story and what we learned from this accident.

I hope you can join us at #DadChat on Thursday, November 21st, at 9:00 EST! If you’ve never joined a Twitter Chat before, I found this post explaining how to do it. 🙂

Hopefully I’ll see you there!


New Blog Schedule

I have blogged every single day since September 3rd. When I was going to be able to get on my computer I scheduled posts, working my butt off to get those posts ready in time.

But now I’m getting stressed about having a post up every day, and I don’t want that to happen. I want blogging to be something that’s fun for me. So, even though I wanted to go a full year of blogging every day, I’m not going to make it.

I’m going to try this new schedule: Posting Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with occasional posts in between if I can’t wait to post something. 🙂 We’ll see if that will work. This way my weekends are free and so are Tuesday and Thursday (which are two of my busier days.)

Hopefully this will make make my blog related stress go away so I can just have fun with it again. ‘Cause I really love doing this, and I don’t want stress about getting a post up on time to ruin that. 🙂

Starting Out

Well, it happened. I got a blog. I am not really sure how it happened, but it did! I am going to be podcasting as well, and this is where I will link to the podcasts.

I am still trying to figure this out, and I am not really sure what I am doing. Hopefully I figure it out soon!
