Chores, smores

“Do your chores.”
It’s a phrase drilled into us parents/guardians growing up, and by ourselves when something needs doing. Chores can be so tedious, hence the word origin. Chores force us to be “Responsible”, another word which can cause a twinge to the little child inside that just wants play time.
The SITS ladies recently had a question concerning blog chores. I could relate to several of the answers given. For instance, marketing one’s posts — I thank certain plugins for helping me with this tasks, like auto-posting links for me to social media devices. Another answer, coming up with a post for a picture. Sure, I can caption the picture, but creating a relevant post could be tedious. Perhaps, this is the real story behind the wordless picture meme.
And, don’t get me started with SEO – talk about making my inner child scream! I think I’d rather have s’mores. Yes, definitely a good reason to have chocolate, and¬† marshmallow on a graham cracker (as if one needs an excuse – hush up, responsible dieter inside my head).

One year and still going

Guess what? The Pear Lady’s blog has officially been around for a year! Scary on all counts, but it’s true. If you look in the archives, you’ll see I started this journal in November, 2006. So, Happy Anniversary to my blog! ūüėÄ

Yeah, I know…I’m being a cheapskate, but the good news is there’s no calories in that¬†cake, so no one gains weight here. *LOL*

I’ve received another “present”, too, although I’m not exactly jumping up and down over this one. Why? I periodically look at the spam comments I get, just to make sure a real comment doesn’t slip in there. In my search, I¬†found a track back¬†link to a site stealing some of my recent content! I know from reading Lorelle on WordPress (highly recommended site – lots of useful content there!) that this stealing of one’s blog feed is called web site hijacking, so in a sense, I had foreseen this hijacker coming. You could bet I reported the incident straight away, too, as I’m not the only “victim”. Hopefully, it’ll be taken care of soon. Anyway, on to happier news.

In honor of my blog anniversary, I’ve taken up another task. I’ve joined NaBloMo, to keep up my journal writing, and am going to try to blog every day this November! *shudders* How will I make it? Does anyone have any stimulants? I may need them soon. *LOL* Seriously, if you’d like¬†to blog along aside me, the link is on the left side of this blog, in the “mmm, good” section. Ready, set, start your keyboards and go!

In the meantime, stay tuned, for even I don’t know what I’ll do next. If you’ve any ideas/comments, the peanut gallery is now open (free virtual allergy shots to those with peanut allergies, of course *wink*).
