New Post Ideas

I haven't had any ideas for a few days now, so I thought I'd write a post about that. More specifically, I thought I'd google "new post ideas" and share anything I found interesting:

1) Expand on previous posts.
Here's an awesome post at Problogger about a technique called mind mapping to create new posts from your previous ones. I particularly like the idea of expanding on previous posts because you can link back to them, creating more links within your site. I was so intrigued with this idea that I almost did that instead of continuing with this post ;)

2) Expanding on comments I've left on other people's blogs.
So many times I've started what was meant to be a short comment that turned into a mini-blog post in some one's comment section. From now on I'm going to try posting more and commenting a little less.

3) Browsing through forums and newsgroups can inspire a host of new topic ideas.

4) Here's a fabulous list at Patdoyle.com of other ways to generate some ideas, from writing book reviews to running polls.

OK, I think that should help me ;) Off I go...

I'm Not Lazy, I'm Just Motivationally Challenged

"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
- Albert Einstein

See? I'm not insane! (phew) I may not be Martha Stewart, but I'm not insane.

I'm referring to my, uh, inept housekeeping efforts. I like a clean house as much as the next person, but every time I clean it just gets messy again.

What is with that, anyway??!!

Mellow Yellow Monday!


I've never played along with a blog meme before, but thought I would this time. Here's my pic (I hope you like it - I know my kids would, lol :-)

Enough Fog!!

I have an issue with my visibility being impaired, but at least with blowing snow it's for a good cause. It ends up on the ground and you get to shovel (which I enjoy! strange I know), your kids can make snow men and snow forts, they can ride their toboggans, they can play outside, their boots are clean when they come in the house, your snow dog (husky cross) is happy happy happy, the evenings are brighter because everything is white, etc etc etc. I can go on and on ('cause I love the white stuff), but I won't.

We had a good run this winter on the south coast of BC. (I am hoping it's not over - shhh, don't tell my neighbours 'cause I think everyone else in the lower mainland is happy to see the snow gone). While they've all been complaining as we were blinded by endless falling snow, now it's my turn.

What's with the fog??? Seriously!! I can't see a flippin' thing. Grrr. It's all damp and clammy and icky... and it's so COLD!!! Honestly, the snow was warmer. I don't care what those weather people with their thermometers say. (Pffft. What do they know anyway ;-)

GET LOST FOG!! You are visibility obstruction with no purpose. Please please go away (and tell snow to come back, wouldya?)

Cheese Fights Cavities

Did you know that cheese can help fight cavities? I had no idea until a friend, who knows a Dental Assistant, recommended eating cheese after sugary treats.

Supposedly the nutrients in cheese help to neutralize plaque, and the texture of cheese stimulates an increased flow of saliva, which also attacks plaque.

Here are some links to check out:

Photographic Evidence That I Am The Anti-Martha

I think the picture pretty much says everything (let's just say that I'm, um, alternatively enabled...)!
