After much thought, debate, talking to myself, answering myself and napping; I have come to a conclusion. I swore two and half years ago that I would not make this blog into a “woe is me, I have a chronic illness” diary of sort. I know for certain, that I don’t want to read about it, so why would I write about it?
The truth is, I have a chronic illness! There is never a moment in my life that I don’t deal with it, explain it, whine about it or work around it.
Dragonflykeep will be about the journey of me, how I manage my illness, my hobbies, my freakish delight in paper goods and a few health related posts plugged in as well. You may not really see much change, but in my head I have finally came to peace with the focus of my blog. With this, I will be recommitting my collaboration with Spoongeeks and will have monthly topics that will be discussed here on my blog and a video on you tube.
Yea, it’s the same but different.
Be sure to check the Spoongeeks site for my FrainBoggedMoments vlogs!
to YouTube! That’s right, I am taking a big bold step into the world of vlogs! Well, not such a huge step. I have been a very slow participant on a collaboration with my BFF and her hubby over on Spoongeeks (yes, I owe a vid, I know!)
But, guys, look…I’m making my own vids on my planner
obsession, err, setups. I’m calling them Vlogtini’s…why, I have no idea. It just popped into my head and no one else seemed to be using the term so I went with it!
Below are my first two episodes! Take a look, subscribe and comment!
Remember this guy…my piggy, Mr.Chan! He’s a bit sad it’s not the Year of The Pig but he’ll get over it.
If you remember from previous posts, I have been utilizing the techniques set forth by Dave Ramsey. A cash envelope system…’member? Well, anyway, when I use cash to purchase pet food, health/beauty supplies (like soap) or even my thrifting envelope…I save the change.
When I make a purchase from my cash envie, I keep the change. Even if the purchase is $3.01, those 99c go right into Mr.Chan’s belly.
This past December Mr. Chan went to the market and depleted his belly into the coin counter…which I turned into an amazon gift card. I figure I save about ten bux in coins per month in round-up coins. That translates into several news books, a midori insert or sticky memos!
So give it a chance, create a little slush fund and then do something fun with it!!
