#WeekendCoffeeShare: Don’t Mind Me, I’m Busy Blogging

If we were having coffee, I’d on at least my second cup after being awake all of last night. House of Cards is back, and Sam and I binge-watched the show since it was released yesterday. (Tune in to Sourcerer this week for my reviews of season 3!)

It’s been a busy week, full of lots to do for the business, and I’ve still got things to do. This afternoon, I’ll be building a print-ordering website for the business, and I’m working on putting together promotional packages. It’s all a bit scary, as it’s a new thing for me, but it’s fun and creative, and enjoyable, so I don’t mind working on the weekend.

I’ve fallen off the daily yoga a bit again, but I’m going to start again on Monday. It’s easy to forget and get distracted, especially when there’s so much to do.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I’ve got lots of blog things going on, too. I joined the A to Z Challenge again when the registration opened in January. After the fun I had last year and all of the new people I met, I knew that I’d want to do the challenge again, even though it was difficult at times.

This time, in addition to signing up for the challenge, I’m a minion, volunteering to help the challenge organizers, and I’m super-excited. I’ve been participating in Twitter events and visiting blogs from the list, and I’m interested in returning to them on March 23 to see what themes people will choose.

I’ve also signed up for The Great Villain Blogathon, something else that will occur in April. Last year, I participated and wrote a post about Hannibal Lecter. This year, I’ll be writing about Frankenstein and his Monster, and I’ll be covering several adaptations.

In the meantime, feminist Friday discussions are still going on, and I’ll be hosting the next one, on March 6. My first anniversary is coming up, and I’ll be writing about my decision not to change my name after getting married and some of the surprising conversations I’ve had in the last year.

We’ll finish this round of discussions on March 13 at Drifting Through My Open Mind with a post from Gretchen. Difficult to believe that another 6 weeks of posting is almost at an end, and feminist Fridays have been fascinating this time. Looking forward to another round already.

  1. I’m going to need that second cup too and for the same reason, House of Cards! I haven’t finished this season quite yet but man is it good so far!

    I hadn’t heard of the “Great Villain Blogathon” before but it looks interesting, might be adding it to my blogging to-do list. Thanks for the link 🙂

    1. We’re not quite finished with the season yet, either, but I’ve really loved it. There are some really good new characters—Dunbar is one of my favorites in a while.

      Hope you join in the great villain blogathon–it’s a lot of fun!

  2. I see why you need to be onto that second cup of coffee haha…I’m ready to go back to bed exhausted from jus reading it 🙂 As to name changes I changed my name when I married and a friend blasted me ( that might be a ‘unique To Australia ‘ saying meaning yelled at lol) . She ranted about how she would never do that. It was belittling ( etc etc the tirade went on). Clock forward 28 years and she marries for the first time. Wedding reception ends 10 pm. Returning home around 10:30 pm I flick through Facebook. There she was – name changed already!!! Hahaha. I do know if I were to divorce I’d change my name back for sure but doubt I’d change it again if I remarried again. Enjoy your coffee 🙂

    1. Too funny!

      I don’t have any strong feelings about what other people should do, honestly, because I think it’s such a personal choice, but I do have my reasons for not changing my name again. And I think I’m on my third cuppa as we speak! 🙂

  3. It’s so exciting setting up a new business. I can remember my own enthusiasm and the sleepless nights, missed meals, full weeks and busier weekends (kind of like a new-born!) I’m looking forward to the upcoming blogging challenges too, and I’m glad you’re on board to help newbies like me! Have a great weekend 🙂

        1. Yay! I’m looking forward to what everyone comes up with. And the thing about themes is that even the more common ones can be fascinating, because then you get all sorts of perspectives on one thing. 🙂

  4. Congratulations on your anniversary. This was a busy week for you. I love hearing about everything you have going on, I’m inspired to do more myself. : ) I can’t wait for the Great Villain Blog hop, it’s going to be fun to see what you have to say about Frankenstein.
    Thanks for coffee!

    1. Thanks! We’re not quite there yet, but so close–March 10!

      I like staying busy, and I can’t wait to be able to reveal the A to Z theme and to start writing those posts. 🙂

  5. You sure are going to be busy lady. I thought about signing up for the Great Villain Blogathon, but I decided to sit it out this year since I already have a lot to do, and I don’t know what to expect. I can’t wait to read what you guys post though.

    1. I feel as thought I don’t know how not to be busy. 🙂

      The villain blogathon was a lot of fun last year. There’s a form to fill out with what villain you’d like to write on and which day, and the hosts update the list regularly, then everyone posts their villain post on their day (somewhere between April 13 and 17), and you bounce around to all the posts. So much fun, and so much villainy!

  6. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate. And a blogathon about villans sounds like something I need to make room for in my schedule. That could be fun! Thanks for the coffee.

    1. I do, but it’s all fun stuff!

      And if you can make time for the great villain blogathon, you should! It was a lot of fun last year, and it looks like it’s going to be even bigger and more fun this year!

    1. I changed my name when I was married the first time, but I decided not to when I remarried. It’s caused all sorts of funny thing, most notably a stand-off with my dad about what my name is. He insists on addressing everything he posts to me under my “married” name.
