I have a question: who uses Reddit regularly? I noticed you can sign in with your google account, so I did. I have only dabbled in reddit occasionally in the past half year or so and find it a little…cluttered? Opinionated without much fact-checking? Trendy? Something like that… I can’t quite describe it accurately. I don’t know if I’m interested enough in using this app as a go-to source. Should I? Or not? Definition Reddit describes itself as the front page of the internet. Wikipedia has a longer, wordier definition and describes reddit as a social news aggregation, web content … Continue reading Questions about apps: Reddit
Today I opened a chat box with a WordPress Happiness Engineer and asked a question about polls.
Some of you have used polls, or surveys, in your blog posts at times. So have I.Continue reading “Polls do not appear in WordPress reader”
It appears that most of you are fascinated by my draft folder I mentioned in yesterday’s post. The one that contains 557 unfinished thoughts, as someone put it.
I don’t know if I’m the weirdo, or you guys are! 😂Continue reading “About those drafts (you asked, I answered) (sorry not sorry)”
Missed the first questions? Click here: Need to know 1 – happiness Need to know 2 – chores Need to know 3 – relationships You were given a month away in a cabin to work on writing undisturbed.

Missed the first question? Click here: Need to know 1 – happiness If you could give up one necessary household chore forever but had to replace it with another chore, which would they be? Me: clean the bathroom I want the bathroom to be sparkly clean as well as highly organized. I don’t want to think about where stuff is, I just want to reach for it and do my business. This is tricky in a home where multiple people use the same bathroom. Why is it so hard to put the toothpaste in the same location every time, hang … Continue reading Need to know 2 – chores
Name one tangible thing that makes you blissfully happy. Explain why. Me: Fresh sheets on the bed.

Would it surprise you to read I have never listened to a Beyoncé song? I mean, on purpose. Her music is played here and there and everywhere, so she’s kind of hard to miss. 😉
Typically I’m a classic rock kinda gal, with some 80s and 90s soft rock or even a bit of pop thrown in.
