4-leaf-clover-many-1244492-639x479First of all …..Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

Now, How Blogging for 30 Days Has Changed Me:

1. I know more about how to improve SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and get posts noticed.  I’m not going to claim to understand it, but I know more.

2. I’m more open about sharing things from my own life.

3. My writing has improved from the more frequent practice.

4. I’m more confident that people will find what I write interesting and like my blog

5. I understand that the difficult times in life are more inspirational than the easy things

6. I’m glad to know my friends, family, classmates, co-workers are amazingly wonderful people

7. I’ve realized that my parents are behind most of what I think about things in the world. (I guess that makes sense.)

8. I know that daily blog posts are too often! It’s a ton of work, so twice a week is enough.

From now on I will only blog twice a week and may include more original fiction from time to time. I’m glad I got this started because I actually learned to enjoy it. I hope you did too.

Irish_DinnerToday just happens to be one of my most favorite days of the year. It is a day of comfort for me which reminds me of happy memories, wonderful, savory dinners with family and friends, corned beef and cabbage and soda bread. It reminds me of Uncle Ray and my grandfather whistling Danny Boy and singing about my smiling Irish eyes. On this lovely St. Patrick’s Day, I want to thank you for reading my blog and sticking with me for thirty days. I hope you enjoy the day with your family and build memories that will last.

 

I leave you with one bit of St. Patrick’s Day trivia:  The 3-leafed shamrock is significant and connected with St. Patrick because the Welsh priest used the ever-present plant as a tool when teaching “the pagans” of Ireland about the Holy Trinity. (That’s right, St. Patrick wasn’t even Irish!)
