My Official Business Website is Ready!

First of all, let me assure you that nothing - absolutely nothing - is going to change at either of my blogs.

You have filled my life with such joy and creativity that nothing (well almost nothing) will stop what we're doing here. I love to share my creative ideas with you and I love to read your blogs and your comments to my posts.

Actually, I can't think of much of anything I'd rather do than communicate with you.

That being said, my new business website is up and ready to go. Would you do me two favors? Please go to my website and tell me what you think. Then please share my website with anyone you know who might even remotely need a writer, want a speaker, or need to spark some creativity in complacent employees. I want to do it all.

Creative people come up with creative ideas. I decided since freelance work is so scarce right now, I was going to market myself. With your help, I can get my website circulating.

Thank you so much.

I can't leave you without a creative writing exercise to do together. So let me think for a minute. How about if you (or your kids) personify your pencil.

Here's what I might say:
I am Jan's pencil. I can tell when she's stressed out because she chews my eraser down to the metal. I can tell when she's in a hurry because she moves me way faster than I'd like to go. Sometimes my lead breaks. Then Jan has the nerve to shove me into a grinder until I have a point again. When Jan is happy she uses me to write about her family and pets......

You get the idea! Give it a try. Have fun. Let your kids do this too. In fact, do it at the same time and then compare notes. Remember writing is fun. It's therapeutic. Keep wallowing in the love of language! Spill your joy right onto your papers!

Oh! I almost forgot! My new business website can be found at
Really...please let me know what you think. I welcome your advice, suggestions, and criticism.

Much much better. I've read each page, checked each link etc. All seems to be working well.

Brain tired, long day; will give some thought about a way to announce your page.

Your website looks great! I'll pass it along. And thanks for your comment on my blog about chiropractors. I haven't gotten to discussing pain management tools yet but chiropractic is certainly among them!

Hi Jan, first of all I'd like to thank you for clicking follow my blog and leaving comment. I also want to wish you the best on your new website.
You mentioned about poem and here it is:

The Rice Terraces looks like a giant staircase.
It smells like herbs in a vase.
It sounds like the cold mist dropping off from space.
It tastes like fresh fruits in a showcase.
It feels like green velvety moss that touches my face.
The Rice Terraces makes me want to go back to that heavenly place.

So there hope you liked it... uhhh nosebleed LOL.

I am Tweedles box of Crayon's,
One of my colors is blue.
But today, Tweedles does not like blue,
she likes purple,
But today, she does not like purple.
Tweedles thinks we are all worn down,
so she put us away,
and now Tweedles
has a paint brush!
