Theme Reveal: A-Z Blogging Challenge

Am I crazy? The answer is always yes.

a-z blogging challengeI have a new grandbaby due in April, a 7-month old grandbaby who owns me, a grown son making his way toward the pitching mound for the Oakland Athletics, two upcoming haunted house conventions AND a burgeoning business that requires my full-time attention BUT have also decided to join the A-Z Blogging Challenge again this year. Today is the day we reveal our theme.

Business. (Oh, geez that sounds boring, but I won’t post it if it is. Promise.) My topics won’t teach you (much), but hopefully they will make you think, dream, and say to yourself, “Whew! That girl’s had some bad luck.” If nothing else, you’ll be able to use some of the posts as a “What not to do” survival guide.

I’m not sure what that will look like: part humor, part reality, part musing. I’ve been through some stuff, had the time of my life, and am currently in the entrepreneurial trenches again creating another company, so I’m sure I have some information you’ll find at least mildly useful, interesting or amusing.

That’s it. See you April 1st! (Here’s where I’ll post links to all 26 posts for you in one convenient location):
