Today I thought you might enjoy another fun quiz. This one helps you find out if you would survive an extraterrestrial alien invasion. Of course, it is very important to know this. One must be ready at all times! (snicker)
I have much to do on my week home, starting later this morning, which means my blogging could remain scanty for awhile. There are things I am trying to complete, change, and redirect in my life, and it all takes time when setting a new course. (nautical term) I will be checking here every day, though, hoping for new comments from you. :) Or you can always send me an email if you prefer. Go to contact page for that if you don’t know my email address.
I already wished a Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends and readers; what are your plans? That day I should have another installment of Writing the Third Dimension to share with you. I expect you’re all very busy getting ready to cook, travel to connect with others, eat a lot, and then shop a lot the next day. Be careful out there!
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? I only had a few things, then this week I managed to get out to a Christmas shopping party at which I found some nice items for all my daughters. It’s alarming how little time remains until December 25!
Enough chatter, did I hear you say? Okay, now for …
the QUIZ (click here)
Would you survive an extraterrestrial alien invasion? Do tell!
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂
I received a congratulatory reminder this evening from WordPress that …
Today, January 9, is my five-year anniversary!
On this date in 2010 I joined the WordPress blogging world and it’s one of the best things I’ve done for my writing.
Unfortunately, I am not off to a great start with anything in this new year, but I hope to improve soon. I have to, don’t I?🙂
How are you doing with your goals, aspirations, dreams so far this year?
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! :)
Recently, I read some interesting facts about blogging but I don’t recall where I saw that. I had made note of a few things which stood out to me, and which I will share here in case you might like to know.
Were you aware that 64% of bloggers blog as a hobby? Only 27% of bloggers write full-time at this. I think I would consider myself, at present, full-time – or the closest thing to it. I don’t blog every day but I try to keep up a manageable routine and schedule – however haphazard that can be at times.🙂
I learned that 21% of bloggers have been blogging for more than 6 years. I started blogging in September 2008 on another site, which makes it five and a half years ago for me.
Do you know what are the major traffic sources for blogs? I’ll tell you: Search Engines make up 48% and Social Media make up 28% – which would consist of Twitter, FaceBook, LinkedIn, and other such places. My posts are noted by me on Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and anywhere else I or my readers choose to mention my posts.
In January 2010 I moved to WordPress. I am pleased to be one of the 40% of bloggers who are using WordPress as their blogging platform.
Another interesting fact is that 30% of bloggers are 25-34 years of age, while 27% are 35-44 years old, and I don’t fit in either of those age groups! Oh well, I still feel at home here.
How do you rate with regard to the above facts? Do you have any other interesting things to add to this information?
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!🙂

NaBloPoMo? what is that?
National Blog Posting Month. It was started in November 2006 as a counterpart to NaNoWriMo. Each day in the month of November bloggers post something new on their blog. (They actually keep going for the whole year if wanted, but it seems November is a busier month because of NaNoWriMo.) It can be as simple as a photo or a quote, or as lengthy as they want to take the time to write.
Do I have enough to do this month? One would think so, but here I am adding another challenge to my already quite full list. I decided since I will likely be posting here every day, anyway, keeping updates of my NaNoWriMo progress, I could attempt to add a little to each post for this challenge, too. So, crazy or over-extended — or both! — here I am. By the time my blog appeared on the long list this morning, it is number 1258 with over two hundred after it!
To console those who don’t like tons of posts from me, I seriously doubt I will continue every day after this challenge ends. And I will try to make it interesting for the next 28 days.
If you love to blog and would enjoy this challenge, go here for information, then sign in and sign up! Or simply cheer me on. :) That would be great, too.
Are you doing this challenge, have you ever, or would you like to another month? How often do you usually blog?
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂
