“Cool” is Less Cool the 15th Time Around.


So…

I’ve recently been posting all this crazy hooey about “Design Crushes” and DIY Storage…blah blah blah. But, here’s the thing: It’s just grown up show-and-tell. What’s the point? How am I learning to be a better writer that way? If I continue, I’m going to lose what small amount of cleverness I have left. And here are the things that are going through my head when I post…Oh, that’s pretty and handmade and indie and hipster and DIY and modern and rustic and vintage. That will make me look cool. POST! You (and I) deserve better than that. I find most of the stuff from other blogs that found in on other blogs that found it on other blogs that found it on other blogs. Ew. No more. Or at least much less. Every now and then I do find something cool that I want to share. And I will do that, but only at the end of a post with real substance.

So get ready for lots of random thoughts and thank you in advance for pretending to care! Love you guys!

A cool thing…

 

 Hey, I could do that!  The End.

Post-a-Day 2011!


I’m posting every day in 2011 (with your help)!

One of my New Years resolutions is to blog more. No excuses (“Latest” or otherwise). Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now.  I will be posting on this blog once a day for all of 2011. *mental breakdown followed by calm and poise*

I know it won’t be easy, but I have to make posting a habit if I’m going to make a career out of this whole writing thing! With the right will and motivation this should be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Because the hugeness of this challenge, I plan to be part of The DailyPost community made up 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.

This would be overwhelming if it weren’t for all of my faithful and loving readers who I know will encourage me with comments, likes, good-will & prayers along the way. Please comment below and let me know what kinds of blog conversations you’d like to have! Be sure to stop by Our Waldo Bungie and (authored by my bestie, Emily) and encourage her as she faces another semester of grad school, work, and frequent & fabulous blogging!

Signed,

My Latest Excuse

Let’s Try This Again


I’m going to pick this blog-thing back up again, but no guarantees! I’ve been planning to start-up an Etsy account for the various nic-nacs on which I’ve been wasting time as-of-late. Be watching for the emergence of a My Latest Excuse store in the coming weeks. In the meantime my graphic designer hubby will be helping me make it look spiffy prior to launch! I’ll give you a little hint about the upcoming store…
