Daily Prompt: Your Time to Shine

Early bird, or night owl?

If a year ago you had asked me, “Are you a morning person?” I would have answered with a resounding, “Yes!”  I used to be a ready-for-action gal (after coffee and food of course).  Get it done!  Move!  Accomplish something!  And yes, SHINE!

But, if you ask me the same question today, my answer would be “Well, maybe.”

You see, I think nighttime is really  my time.

 On the other hand, maybe not.  

On the other hand, maybe so.

Ah, Nightfall –  when the expectations of daylight evaporate;  when I can surreptitiously satisfy a gnawing craving to blog, with no demands , no appointments , no meals to prepare, beds to make, dogs to feed, clothing to wash, or people to interact with.

Then again, I am a habitual early riser and begin blogging when morning necessities are accomplished (now done in a rush).

This is all the fault of WordPress of course –  this identity crisis.

WordPress is the culprit.


 Blogging is now my compulsive, ridiculously addictive hobby.  In fact, the urge to write, or comment, or find one more fascinating post, is so compelling, I am tempted to stay blogging all night!   However, there are other people involved in my real life, so I force myself to quit the computer by midnight.  I HAVE to get some sleep!

The result of all this time shifting is a confusion of identity.

Am I an early bird?  Sometimes.  Maybe.  Maybe not.

Am I a night owl?   Not entirely.  Maybe.  Maybe not.

And can I  place all the blame on WordPress?

You bet!

wordpress-family-award (1)Congratulations to two of my very favorite bloggers who have both received The WordPress Family Award.  Their blogs are A Daily Thought and  Hope the Happy Hugger.   These two faves are where I find informative, inspirational,  fun, and funny posts that are irresistible.  Each is different in dramatic ways that never fail to keep me riveted and always eager for more.

They are also two bloggers who rarely fail to comment, and who share my joy in participating in the grand blogging effort.   They have made a huge difference in my approach to the Blog-Us-Fear.

So, this is to say, “Thank You Judy and Michelle (*hugs*) for passing the award forward to me.”  When  nominated twice like this for the same award, there are two compelling reasons to follow the rules and  respond and you two  have sent  a delightful compliment that leaves me grinning.

The WordPress Family Award is reserved for folks in Cyberspace who are  unceasingly kind, sympathetic, encouraging, and open to laughter – and who keep each other going by sharing, commenting, and making personal connections even though they may actually be virtual strangers.

  • Rules:
  • Display the award logo on your blog.
  • Link back to the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate 10 others you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience and family.
  • Let your 10 Family members know you have awarded them.

Since I have received this award from two different people, I am taking the liberty of listing 20 nominees!   I know some of you have “award-free” blogs, or maybe you have already been given this award,  and if so, just take this all as a compliment and a thank you  for your kindness and support over time.

And if you don’t see yourself here, it’s not because I don’t love you.   And since you are “family”, I know you will understand.

And the nominees are:
