Joys and Concerns, Life & Love, Etc.

As I mentioned before — and as I have been outlining all week — I am tweaking the blog slightly to make it more interactive. The reason for the new emphasis is because I don’t want this venue to be one-sided. My vision is to use the platform to become a clearinghouse for sharing, caring and, most important, prayer.

That’s where you come in. I can’t share your praise nor can other followers if we don’t know your joys and I can’t pray for you nor can other followers if we don’t know your concerns. All it takes is a couple of keystrokes under the “Contact Me” button on the top bar {and I believe to the right if you’re not a follower yet}. I hope it becomes your best friend as you navigate around the site. You can also comment or reach me at

I am also inviting readers to share a blog post or thought with us as part of our outreach. I’ll choose one to “share” during our Prayer, Care, Share time each week and link others along with the joys and concerns on Saturdays.

This is a work-in-progress. While I’ve chosen seven categories to correspond to the days in the week, I’ve also added two others — Life & Love and Etc.

Life & Love has been and will continue to be personal, usual first person posts reflecting life and the things and people I love. That will not change, although the posts will be collected under that category.

Etc. is for those random posts that pop up occasionally. They tend to be more of rants on the general state of politics, events or sports that don’t quite fit into other categories.

One question I have been asked is how I will incorporate the two “other” categories — Life & Love and Etc. — into the writing scheme. The truth is, I’m not sure. I will probably post to multiple categories. I would appreciate your thoughts on that!

Finally, I have really been having a problem getting the graphics to link with the categories. I’ve asked the “friendly” experts at WordPress and haven’t received a reply. So I’m asking you. I’m trying to link images to my categories so people can click on either to enter the category file. My brain says the categories should have a link which can be included with the image … but I just can’t seem to find it. Any help would be appreciated!

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
