Have You Played A Google a Day Yet?

A Google a Day game

For the third part in this series, I’m going to evaluate my 50 blog post topics list. I wrote this list so I wouldn’t get stuck with writer’s block and stop blogging. I didn’t like the blog post ideas that I was coming up with just so I could get a post up, so I …

All The Things I’ve Stopped (Part 1 of 9)

the streak has ended

Ever since my blogging streak ended, I’ve thought about all the things that I said I was going to do on this blog. With the exception of one or two, I stopped doing all of them within a few months. Besides the blogging streak, there was only one other endeavor that ended in a matter …
