Glutton For Punishment? - 7 Posts in 7 Days Link-up

Yeah, I haven't done a lot of posting in the last few months.  Very little in the way of thoughtful, entertaining, insightful-sharingness going on around here.  I've just been lethargic, and lazy, and I haven't been up to much more than joining in on 7 Quick Takes (and even that is too much sometimes).

So maybe joining Jen Fulwiler's next round of 7 Posts in 7 Days will help to motivate me to get writing again.  Maybe it will stimulate the creative juices.  

Or maybe it will kill me.

7 Quick Takes - Vol. 13

Even though I feel SO MUCH better than I did in October, I still have a long way to go in trying to figure out how to manage this Graves' disease on a day to day basis. Some days are good, some days, my thyroid hands me my ass on a platter.
I don't know if my recent lack of motivation to blog has more to do with the Graves' or with the lack of anything even remotely interesting occuring in my life to inspire me. This pervasive feeling of being stuck in a rut is the pits! I need something meaningful to do.

7 in 7 - Day 7: I Made It

7 posts in 7 days really wore me out!
Well, I did it!  I successfully wrote 7 posts in 7 days, in response to the Jen Fulwiler's blogging challenge over on Conversion Diary.  And boy, am I pooped!  It was harder than I thought it would be.  Not so much because I couldn't think of things to say, because trust me, I've got plenty of opinions on plenty of subjects that I don't mind sharing with anybody dumb interested enough to listen.  No, the tough thing was just finding the time every day.  I work full time, and I have a nastily long commute to and from work.  So by the time I get home, I'm pretty tired and just want to relax, not spend even more time in front of the computer trying to compose a new blog post.  At least, not every single day.

7 in 7 - Day 1: Finding My Voice

I love to read.  Oh man, do I ever love to read!  Books, articles, blogs: whatever I can get my hands on.  And after a lifetime of being a reading nut, I can definitely say that one of the most important components of a good read (for me, at least) is the voice of author.
Behold my personal stash

7 Posts in 7 Days: I Must Be A Little Insane

Jen Fulwiler over at Conversion Diary has issued an epic blogging challenge to any interested bloggers, and I'm just nutty enough to take her up on it.

The challenge:  to write 7 blog posts in 7 days, starting Monday, July 22 (tomorrow!!!) and ending Sunday, July 28.
This is me by the end of this week.
