2011 Resolution and my son's joke...


Cataclysm (n): 1. any violent upheaval, especially one of a social or political nature. 2. Physical Geography . a sudden and violent physical action producing changes in the earth's surface. 3. an extensive flood; deluge.

The featured blog/site for today is The Indie Book Collective.  Whether you're published traditionally or you've gone the self-publishing route, this is a great site to explore with plenty of material (including marketing).

Next Friday I will be driving to Florida with my family so my last post before Christmas will be on Monday. The next one after that (unless I feel creative) will be in the New Year.

Now, for my 2011 resolution, yes 2011 I've been thinking a lot about this blog and about my posts the past week. I want to give my followers something useful, something that will be meaningful and they will enjoy. I don't want to post stuff for the sake of 'posting' or filling in the week. I have a few ideas that will start in the New Year.
Bottom line, my resolution is that I will try posting on Monday's and Friday' only. I will reserve Wednesday's for the occasional guest posts. That's right! If you would like to do a guest post, an interview or have another idea, let me know. I will put a new page together this weekend with some guidelines. This will begin first week of 2012.

Now, for my son's joke:
"Mommy, why did the boy climb up the maple tree?"
"To play with the Maple Leafs."

For those who don't know, Maple Leafs are Toronto's Hockey Team. I thought it was a cute joke for an eight year old.

Damn Maple Leaves! Worst leaves on the planet!
Sorry, that's from an old hockey commercial. It was funny and just stuck with me.
Now you know why I only post three days a week. I don't want filler. Although lately, I've had so much it almost doesn't fit...
