11/22/11 - I'm Too Excited to Sleep!

My alarm will go off in just 2 hours, and I don't care! I literally feel like those kids on that Disney commercial that jump up and down on their bed exclaiming, "I'm too excited to sleep!"

I updated my blog tonight. It has a new look and 3 new features - my 3 contest entries! How amazing is that?

Today is the one month anniversary since creating this blog and finding Glenn's blog, To Simplify.  One month! And I've already completed 3 short stories and started my own business. I'm so thrilled.

And I'm telling more and more people about my dreams so who knows where that will lead. Plus I've signed up for a webinar series that begins in January that, among other things, will teach me how to use my blog for income AND complete an eBook. All of this since October 22! Unfrickin-believable!

Happy Anniversary "Living in Grace!"  Thank you for all you've done for me.


  1. I'll read your stories when I get a free moment but I wanted to let you know that if you need help getting the word out about your website or business I'm happy to share what I've learned over the years. I have 2 e-courses out and have helped someone else get her e-books online (actually I wrote them for her too but that's another story) and I understand some of the nuts and bolts. Plus I'm the queen of free and cheap!

    So feel free to ask and also check out my other website www.mariameiners.com which has some decent articles about online business (work in progress... needs a lot more).

    Off to play taxi now - have fun!

  2. Interesting.....being excited and fired up about your dreams and goals is always a good thing! I'm excited about going to Quartzite next month and boondocking for 2 or 3 months, getting by on as little as possible, doing absolutely nothing if I so choose.....but at the same time, it frightens me just a little, as the income stream will be closed off, albeit temporarily. But, I know it will be a GOOD thing for me in the end....its just the beginning that makes me hesitant, to leave a steady paycheck.

    But, new opportunities await in Q-zite! I'm already planning on putting in an app to work at Crazy Horse Monument in SD this season.....thats one thing about this workamping lifestyle---you just have to keep planning your next step.....

  3. @Gatorep-good for you! Q-zite and boondocking for 2-3 months... nice. Love SD. Good luck with your app.

    @Maria-good to hear from you again! Can't wait to check out your website. Thanks too for the offer. You never know. ;)

  4. Ok read all 3 stories. Good work and a great start to your career as a professional writer.

    Again, I'm not sure if I could write for contests so I applaud you!

    I think it will be interesting to follow these stories and see how your style develops over time. Thanks for letting us ride along with you.

  5. @Maria - I'm so glad you read my stories. Thank you for that I really appreciate you saying, "good work and a great start". That means a lot to me. I checked out your website, http://www.mariameiners.com/. We'll talk soon. Thanks again!
