Originally an ad agency writer and creative director, I gave up full time for freelance in 2009. Now in addition to client work, I write for various magazines, I’ve blogged on Huff Post and I’ve just finished a first draft of a book. And of course I’ve been blogging here on WordPress for 13 years.
I’ve had several blogs on various topics, from ranting on marketing to being a film festival junkie, but this one — 365 — has lasted the longest — since 2012 and it’s still going. I think being curious is my salvation. When you want to know something about everything, you never run out of things to talk about. And write about.
It working is all I know. I’m still here, sharing my thoughts with you. And hopefully you will also share yours, with me.
So glad I found your blog! You’ve been such a wonderful supporter of mine. Your gravatar profile doesn’t list your blog. You may want to think about adding this wonderful blog to your gravatar profile! All the best…Pat aka Bookpeeps
Thank you so much! I am glad that you enjoy my blog. You already know I am a huge fan of yours. And thanks for the tip about my gravatar profile. I am going to see if I can figure that out right now.
Thanks again for the tip. I managed to update my gravatar profile without losing my mind. See you on WordPress. I look forward to reading more of your posts.
Terrific and so glad you didn’t lose your mind! 🙂 So many more bloggers will now discover your wonderful blogs. Thanks always for your compliments and support! Keep writing!
Will do. You too.
I wish more wordpress bloggers would take the time to go look at their profile when someone clicks on their gravatar. I think that would be a good post for another one of your days! 😉
It is so nice to click on someone after you have read a comment of theirs that interests you and be able to swing right on over to their blog without having to figure out the address! I think that would generate a lot more traffic for them too. I know that this was posted last year but was wandering through your archives and found this topic and thought it was a good one!
Actually I think that is how I found you…
You commented and I liked what you had to say and clicked on ya! And your address was there! So many times a lot of people will just move on if we are too hard to find.
I always check out the blogs of people who write comments on my blog. And when I see interesting comments left on other blogs. I’m just curious about them and what they have to say.
I hope you’re enjoying what you’re doing! 🙂
Oh, I do. I love it! Thanks.
I like your thoughts and your words
Thank you so much! And thanks for taking the time to comment.
Hi there! 🙂
Thank you for being such an inspiration to me…I have nominated you for the Blog of the Year 2012 award. You can check out your link here http://viewsofmyworld.wordpress.com/2012/12/27/blog-of-the-year-awards/ and I would be honored if you would accept the award 🙂
I am the one who is honoured. I have to say, I have received so much recognition recently it is overwhelming. In a good way, obviously. What thrills me the most, though, is hearing that the things I write about resonates. It’s all any writer wants. Thank you very much. Fransi
I have nominated you for the Sunshine blogging award.
I hope you take my nomination in the spirit it is give, though don’t feel obliged to accept. More details are here: http://petedenton.wordpress.com/2013/02/24/blogging-awards-ive-been-bad/
:). Thank you. I do have sort of a moratorium on awards. I have been blessed with sort of an embarrassment of riches here on WordPress. Wrote a post on it a while back. BUT, i love the spirit in which this one was intended, so I am happy (see I didn’t use very) to accept it. I must warn you, though, that I will be breaking some of the rules. Thanks again.
You’re welcome. And, rules are meant to be broken 🙂
Ahhh, a man after my own heart. Thanks sgain 🙂
Love your blog so have nominated you for another award – I know you don’t do them but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve them!
Well, thank you. I’m thrilled you like my blog. Actually I DO do them, as evidenced by all the icons running down the side bar of my blog. I just called a halt when I figured I’d received more than my fair share. Like I said, I appreciate YOUR appreciation. So when I tell you I won’t be doing anything about these two, please don’t think I’m not grateful. I am.
No problem at all!

Thanks! And happy Birthday back at you!
Its great to know you’ve been writing for such a long time now. I’m new to this blogging thing, only two weeks old actually, I’m glad i found this post 🙂
Thank you! Hope you enjoy blogging. I am sure you will.:)
Thank you 🙂
I have just nominated you for a Shine On Award….well deserved!
Congratulations, Kate; and thank you very much for the nod. So sorry to hear about your uncle. You know, I have had a moratorium on awards, But under the circumstances I am thrilled to accept. Although I didn’t know Your Uncle Jim, I will accept in his honour as well.
Thanks for liking my poem.
You are welcome 🙂
I am so glad that WordPress recommended your blog to me today. I look forward to reading more. Thanks for being here!
Thank you so much! I’m a bit behind in my posting but promise to catch up. Hope you continue to enjoy …
I don’t know what I would do if I HAD to write something every day. Pressure!
The words in my head would probably vanish like smoke in a strong wind, and leave me wandering in mental darkness searching for one morsel of thought! 😉
Oh I just wanted to see if I had it in me. I like challenges and I loved it. I miss it, actually, but it is very time consuming and between the blog and client work I had no time left for my book. I will do it again, one day, though:)
Happy New Year 2017 to you, Fransi.
Thanks Joe. And the very same to you.
I am always looking for blogs that inspire and am so glad I found yours.
Thank you so much! I’m glad you found it too 🙂
