Managing Depression

One in five Americans suffers from some form of mental illness, according to the National Alliance for Mental Illness, NAMI.
My blogging friend Secret Angel, herself an abuse survivor, included this video in here blog post, This cloak of darkness; a message to the depressed, this week, It’s about a 20–year-0ld’s battle with crippling depression and her courage to perform her song of overcoming before an audience of millions of people on America’s Got Talent. Her courage brought me to tears.

Let’s laugh a little today!

I love dumb jokes. The dumber they are, the better I like them.
Today, my post on FHG has absolutely no socially or spiritually redeeming qualities. I hope you have fun reading today.

Today, I don’t care about likes or feedback; but I would absolutely love for you to send me the dumbest [clean] joke you know. It has to be really really dumb and clean. One of my readers already sent me one that will be hard to beat, but you’re welcome to submit a dumb joke anyway.

Have a Happy, Funny, Laughing Monday everyone

My blogging friend Keith Haney…

My blogging friend Keith Haney came up with a great idea for meeting and getting to know other bloggers better. He calls it Meet and Greet Weekend. You share interesting stuff about yourself that other bloggers might not know. Then you share a link to a post from your blog, and someone else’s. The share the Meet-and-greet link on your own blog, or social media (like I’m doing here).
Thanks, Keith, for a great idea. I’m looking forward to hearing from other bloggers now!

When was your last big…

When was your last big showstopping sin?

When’s the last time you blew it big-time with God?
Did you reconcile with The Almighty right away, or did it take awhile?
God had something to do with it.
Read about it today on my blog, For His Glory.

Did you know . ….

Did you know . . .

Now you can display your Instagram photos directly into your WordPress blog? How cool is that?
Another feature that makes WordPress the best blogging site in the blogosphere!
I’m going to do this as soon as I get a spare moment.
Here’s a link to the video that teaches us how to do it.

Why do you blog?

Do you blog . . .

  • A. to help others?
  • B. to inform, inspire, motivate or encourage others?
  • C. to have fun?
  • D. to sell a product or service or solicit clients?
  • If you picked an answer other than C, don’t you hope your message is easy to read? Don’t you want readers to understand and benefit from your post?

    If you answered “Yes” to either question, my Write On Target Tuesday tip topics will help you do both.
