Endings & Beginnings

Happy August 1st! Yeah, so the month of July totally got away from me… so much for the UBC! I really WILL complete a blog challenge one of these days – meanwhile, though, a few other folks and I have all decided we’re doing our own informal blog challenge for August instead of July! So […]

New Month – New Attempt at the UBC

Happy July 1st! It’s hard to fathom that we are at that halfway point of 2012 already. Yet here we are, first day of a new month, which I always think of as a clean slate and new opportunity to be successful. My goal for this new month is not only to make a new […]

Newly Published Author Here!

First of all, welcome back to my blog. I do apologize for the lapse of nearly two months in posting. As always, other things higher on the priority list “interfered” with this more enjoyable activity of blogging. I do plan to attempt the next blog challenge in July and see if I can actually complete […]

My Top 5 Reading List

You may see some repeats here from previous posts, in this UBC post #14, discussing my personal Top 5 Reading List recommendations. Here, in no particular order other than alphabetical by title, are books I have read once, or multiple times, and highly recommend. (I could easily say ANY book by Joyce Meyer, but I […]

Inspiration from Joyce Meyer

At “lucky” UBC post #13 is the topic of who inspires me most.  When my Dad was alive, he certainly did, with his faith in God and his example of how to live one’s life fully committed to God and family. For many years now, though, I have drawn inspiration and motivation from Joyce Meyer, […]

My own personal “Blogathon” continues! I ran out of steam last night at 11 posts, so I’m picking back up today at UBC post #12 about the Top 3 Most Popular Posts here on this blog since the beginning of 2012, based on views and comments. They all occurred during the first two weeks of […]

Dear K’Lee…

So the suggestion for UBC post#11 was to write a post like it was an advice column… so here you go, folks, this is your chance!!! [Source: morgueFile Free Photo] This is a “Dear K’Lee” post – I welcome your questions and as long as they are reasonable, I’ll do my best to answer them. […]

One of Many Favorite Quotes

The suggestion for UBC post #10 was to discuss a favorite quote. I have so many, it is next to impossible to choose only ONE.  I can say that the person I most often quote is Joyce Meyer, a Bible teacher and motivational speaker with an international ministry, and published author (NY Times Bestseller) with […]

Why I Started Freelance Writing

Freelance writing was merely a delayed career choice. My UBC post#9 is about why I started freelance writing, which I already briefly mentioned in a previous post. I have enjoyed writing since my early teens, around junior high school (MANY years ago), but never did anything serious or significant with it until a little over […]

Need Motivation? Read This Book!

I have mentioned Mary Ylisela before, but since UBC post #8 is to review a book, I am choosing her wonderfully inspirational book: Jumpstart Your Day: 101 Daily Motivations for Freelancers. As a published author and motivational coach, Mary has the unique ability to combine inspiration and motivation with practical advice, all designed to increase […]
