Goodbye for now – NaNoWriMo

Can you believe that October is almost over? Can you believe that NaNoWriMo is almost here? I am in a little bit of shock over here. After watching all the horror movies and reading all the spooky tales, I feel like I enjoyed this month to it’s fullest. However, I am still a little sad to see it go. I just love October! But it is not all snots and tears. With the ending of October, this can only mean that November is almost here.  Oh yes, that is how the almighty calendar works! And for me, November…

13 Blogging Tips from 2 Years of Blogging

It has been a whole two years since I began sharing with you all on ScaleitSimple. Hooray! To sum up my current thoughts on my blogging skills I would say I kind of feel like a toddler. Sort of cute, eager to learn and moving forward in the mystery of life all while looking clueless and stumbling like a drunk person. You know what I mean? Regardless, of my mixed feelings, I have learned a lot over the past couple of years, and although I have a long way to go I wanted to share the lessons I have learned…

Dear Bloggers, It’s not just about the money

  Dear Bloggers, Is it just me or is the blogging world quickly becoming a bit of a get rich fast scheme? It seems to me that more often than necessary there are posts all about making money blogging, public income reports and how to earn money on posts. Bloggers boast about how they made $20,000 in their first month of blogging and other crazy declarations. It is reminding me of those insanely unrealistic diet ads that so many people fall for. I am sure for those who are actually cashing in it is helpful to have these references…

Lessons in Following my Dreams & NaNoWriMo Win

I’m back! Did you miss me? Did you even notice I was gone? Regardless, I missed you my blogging pals and I am happy to be back in action just in time for this wonderful Christmas season. Yay! As you may know,  from my previous post, I have been enveloped in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) during the month of November. A task that took me begrudgingly away from my blog and all of you. However, this was the kind of break that I really benefited from, I stretched my creative limitations and expanded the barriers of what…

Hello November & NaNoWriMo

Hello, November! November is such a strange month don’t you think? Sandwiched between the beautiful and spooky month of October and the festive and busy month of December. Not only is this month the middle child of two pretty awesome siblings it is also a little bit of a reject when it comes to the weather. Snow, rain, fog, sun, wind. Anything and everything here in St. John’s. Alright alright, enough shitting on November. There are some really great things to look forward to this month also. One of them being NaNoWriMo. You may be wondering…
