Day 271-Free Days-Thanks, Promised Recap & A Plea

*This post may contain affiliate links, please see my disclosure. 

Good morning from a windy, chilly patio! Thank you for all of your prayers, they worked! Although we were chilly outside and even wrapped up in blankets in front of fires and heaters outside, it did not rain or storm as predicted! I’m happy to report that the fish fry went off without a hitch and a good time was had by all.

The cool outdoor setup

Us girls huddled in the corner enjoying some time around the heater together!

My boy and me-notice he has no jacket or sweater…again!

Troy and Tisa enjoying the warmth of the kitchen

Told you it was cold! Hermania and Mel cuddling!

Now to some sad news. I’m seeing less reader comments and likes than I have previously enjoyed, and no one at all commented on the product review I did- does this mean you don’t like what I’m writing about, or did everyone just slow down in their own blogosphere? I’m not sure, but a girl sure could use some help over here! Throw me a bone will ya? I realize that so far my product/service reviews have been about things writing related, however, I assure you that I will get to products I use in my daily life like the types of essential oils or food choices we make here on the patio.

I would welcome any suggestions/comments at all! As I continue to work on the direction of my blog/business, I only know this for sure: I just want to help you in whatever way I can. So, I need feedback to know what that is. For now, I will plan May’s calendar pretty much the same way it has been unless you have other ideas for new features or clue me in to the kind of content you want/need me to provide.

I realize also that everyone is busy in their own lives/businesses and there is a lot going on in the writing world. I have been so busy myself finishing the course Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing and working on my website that I haven’t been doing much in the way of creative writing (like on Medium or Prose) except for here on the blog on Fridays.

Before I go, I will tell you, I have one more writing related review over on Products From The Patio, and I really love it, you may use it yourself with your own websites/blogs. It’s for Grammarly the grammar checking service I use. I would again appreciate any feedback you would offer, and I would love for you to check out the review and just let me know what you think about the website in general.

Now I really have to go, Dave is trying to work on the game room/man cave and he’s banging things around which really means, he’s ready for me to come and help out! See you all here tomorrow on a hopefully much warmer patio!

    so I have grammerly..and it is annoying the crap out of me. It tell’s me when I misspell something (always nice to know0 but doesn’t change it to the correct word..it just taunts me! Now if I wanted taunting I would ask george to correct my spelling, and we all know I don’t ask george to correct anything. At this very moment there are five red unerlined thing in this response from grammerly and it is sitting there laughing at me. yea..now it’s eight. I am sorry I have failed to comment..as you can see it is more that i am annoyed with the grammerly than anything you wrote. actually i have never been annoyed at anything you wrote. WTG girl! You should get an award for that! what was the question?

  4. I am glad that your party went well and that the weather subsided except for the wind! My reasoning behind not commenting on the products on the patio is due to the fact that I am not personally interested in the writing links that you have shared. While I am interested in what you have to say I do not know what to say when it comes to a review of the actual product. If by giving you some credits by clicking on the links I will definitely do that! Do I need to make sure to do that? I have not done my best to make sure that click on every link, so let me know if that is one way that I can help to throw you a bone! Like you said, I think that people are just crazy busy these days! I do not know what I would do without technology as it has enhanced my life greatly, but in the same regard it has made my life busier than it once was due to social media outlets. Rolling on, Stephanie

      No, by throw me a bone, I mean I want you guys to tell me what you want me to write about most. Don’t worry about clicking the links unless they are something you are really interested in, want to learn more about or want to buy. 💋
