Every July I do some sort of blogging challenge, whether it requires posting every day, every other day, or some other amount. Either way, its always my busiest month. This year’s required a post everyday, with no prompt. I just had to post anything I wanted. That made it tough some days. I did a lot of daily prompts on days when I didn’t know what else to do.
As an east coast native, humidity is something that I’ve always just accepted as part of warm weather. It wasn’t until I travelled to the west coast that I experienced how pleasant warm weather actually can be. This photo represents typical spring and summer mornings on the east coast.
There’s been a lot of talk about respect recently. There are fights between cops and citizens, men and women, and so on between any two group who are somehow different.
We’ve all seen “#blacklivesmatter” over the last several months. And there have been people who changed it to “bluelivesmatter” or “#alllivesmatter” So who is right and who is wrong?
As a person who takes lots of nature-related photos, a lot of my collection is close ups. I had a lot to chose from for this week, but it didn’t make the selection much easier. I wanted to find one that showed a lot of small details, but wasn’t too in-your-face. This is what I’ve come up with:
I don’t have much to talk about today. I’m not out of ideas, but I’m just not in the mood to type those posts. Basically, I’m not feeling very creative today.
I didn’t sleep well, and I’ve had a long day of work. To say the least, I’m a little drained.
I think it’s good to take a day here and there to just type to your followers. That’s what this post is going to be. I won’t use tags, or share this on twitter, or any of that. This is just for you; for my followers.
You’ve just won $1 billion dollars in the local lottery. You do not have to pay tax on your winnings. How will you spend the money?
This seems to be asked as if it were some philosophical question. But it’s not. Not really.
What does it say about humans today that these are the questions that stump us, or make us spend time thinking of the best answer?
I want to talk to you about dreams. What are they?
Some people believe that they are messages from our own minds, or from a supernatural power. Some people believe they are just nonsense. Some people fall somewhere in between.
Lost of people claim to get inspiration from their dreams. Scientists have said that they dreamed of some crazy idea, and it turned out to be a huge deal.
Tell us about something you’ve done that you would advise a friend never to do.
Procrastinate. To be more specific, procrastinate big things. To put off doing the dishes is one thing, but when it come to things that take a lot of work, planning, or scheduling, don’t put it off.
When I first read through the list of challenges, I had no idea what I was going to do for this week’s. A tornado? I live in the mountains. We don’t get tornadoes. How would I ever complete this challenge?
Okay enough of the dramatics.
Have you ever wondered how some people get to be so smart? Or maybe they just seem to understand everything. Maybe they were born smart. Is there a genius gene? I don’t know. Maybe…
But I find the easiest way to learn, and be one of those “smart people” is to ask two questions. How? and Why?
