True-North Thursday: "All BLOGGED OUT?... Then GO Back to Blog basics!"

Welcome to my
True-North Thursdays!

This is a SPECIAL Day where you have
a glimpse of my 'serious' side.

This is a day I dedicated to be my 'True-North'
a day I turn to my COMPASS and look within
and remember why I BLOG in the first place!

I know this may be the wackiest statement
I'm ever going to make but heck,
here it is anyways.

'To Blog or Not to Blog...that is the question',
to me has a huge parallel to the ever famous
Shakespeare question
"To be or not to be..."


Why Blog Dare Diva?
With all your projects and goals,
where do you find time to blog?
Why, Why, Why?

 WHAT Inspires you to BLOG?

Well, the wacky thing is that after being mocked for blogging from my kids or asking myself the same 'Whys',
the deep nagging 'Because' just happened
to be accompanied by the famous
Julie and Julia
Julie & Julia

just happens to 'coincidentally' be on tv as I blog away this very moment. Honest to goodness... Alex (the other son)
just happen to say as I prepare blogging...
'You aren't blogging about this are you mom?'
(Haha... he gave me the idea!)

But seriously, Yep...this movie was one of my inspiration to continue blogging. I was blogging months before the movie came out and then I quit because of my ADD.
But little reminders like this movie move me
into action.

And yet here it is again, the movie as a 'loving reminder' after the little 'lows' that I experienced today.

So the answer to why I BLOG is a very
'DEEP DESIRE' to Fulfill a Mission
which you will soon discover.

I believe that I have a special message to share
Of course it's only special to me, but it
can also be special to some 
and could make a huge difference if tried and tested.

SO If you are having a 'Blogger's block'
finding it difficult  to be inspired
I invite you to read my interesting little story
about why I BLOG
and I hope you find yourself
'inspired' and 'empowered'
in some little way.

I will be leaving this page on for a good while 
and write up my ABOUT page on this site
So come visit often and read my ABOUT page.
I promise I will make it worthwhile!

But please continue to spread the

And keep STRIPPING me
and Grab my Button Gently! (Lol)

 (my button is at the right side bar,
highlight it, press CTRL + C to copy and paste it on your side bar. You can do that by adding a javascript widget to your page and paste it)

Let me know where I can find your button, comment here
or email me.

 I will continue to give you  more Blogging Tips
and lots of 'LUV' in return or just email me for
any questions and I will try my best to get back to you!
