So often I love the blank page of a blog. I could write anything here. I could write: some plankton can make little clouds above their own heads when the sun is too bright. This is true. I could write: some people bring their rainclouds with them wherever they go. I am afraid of becoming this kind of person. This is metaphorically true, then just … Continue reading blank

I’ve been using WordPress for a very long time. There’s 52 blogs connected to this account– some that I manage, some that I am just the appointed extra contact for. Many of these are premium accounts. So, when stuff started falling apart over this last year, I got a little worried. I honestly didn’t know how to migrate so much over to another system. I … Continue reading The Blog Tab

I left it open so that I could post a recipe, or a poem about a recipe, or a story that uses the word recipe, or a metaphorical recipe– depending on how much I want to … Continue reading august shenanigans
I have a soft voice. I wouldn’t say it’s soothing, smooth, or even gentle, but it isn’t jagged in the corners like an old cinder block. It’s easy to listen to. Easy to carry.

It hits a pitch– a grit, an emptiness– that I can’t stand. “Listen,” I … Continue reading soft voiced
Every year, a group of bloggers and myself tackle National Blog Posting Month in November. We post one blog post a day for the entire month, and we support each other through it all. We call it NanoPoblano! If you’d like to be included in this year’s shenanigans, let me know. You can learn more about it here: https://cheerpeppers.wordpress.com Continue reading are you in?
Relax. This is just a blog post. You’ve posted before. Over a thousand times, actually. You’re a little rusty, sure. It’s been over 400 days since you so much as glimpsed the internet… but you don’t need a license to be a blogger so it’s not like you expired. And it’s not as if they can revoke your blog if you post something foolish. I … Continue reading this is not a test.
