I started blogging with Livejournal way back in 2003. I had to get a code to access the site and found myself posting my thoughts and enjoying the process. Facebook didn't happen until 2007 when I started my Library and Information Technology program. Many classmates made up my earlier friend's list, and it taught me … Continue reading Picking My Online Spaces
My last blog post was post number seven hundred. Seven! Hundred! I found out while wanting to link back to it for this special message: Thank you. I used to jump on notifications and comments the way dogs responded to Pavlov. While I lean into extroversion, I do exercise judgement in disclosing personal stuff. This … Continue reading A Thank You Note
My last entry happened in mid-June with the staycation countdown. I had my time off, dealt with dad in the hospital, now out, and my parents are adjusting to life with homecare. The goal of my time off involved what direction to take the blog. In the end, I decided to go back to basics … Continue reading Back to Basics
I made a you-got-to-be-kidding-me discovery. I repeated myself with my New York post, right down to the two songs selected. I merely wrote the post and didn't check as I usually do. Anytime I think of a song, I go back and check if I featured the song before. Often, I catch it, and lately, … Continue reading Taking a Blog Break Until The New Year
Not to worry it's only for a week. I just need to refill my brain.
Every do something thinking it's a good idea but as you go on, it doesn't sit well? It's why I changed the blog site back to Stacks and Ranges. Carry on.

The grocery store opens at 9, allowing me time to stock up on lunch items as the library returns to normal hours. The bright-blue bag in the picture is my grocery bag, ready to … Continue reading How Much Advice Before Breakfast?
Call it a rebrand, a retirement, or an old-fashioned needed for a change. I changed the name of the blog from Stacks and Ranges to Scenes from a Life. I started my blog as a sandbox for writing with hopes to turn it into a library blog. I will write about libraries from time to time … Continue reading Rebranding or It’s Time For A Change
In blogging, much like my writing, I fly by the seat of my pants. Sometimes those pants are capris of many different colours, a good pair of blue denim, or in black. I have a germ and off I go. Rather than changing, I adjust much like an airplane makes its adjustments during take-off, landing, … Continue reading And I Will Write 500 Posts, And I Will Write 500 More
Sorry, folks, for the two posts in one day. One of the advantages of WordPress is the ability to post across devices. Right now, I madly type with my thumbs, on my phone, at my local Starbucks. Unfortunately it takes one device to muck up the works. After finishing the Charlie Dore post, I suddenly … Continue reading What’s The Cure for Premature Posting?
