One small step for Penny... one large step for blogging...

I spent two days trying to figure out how to get my selection to show up on my blog page. I did everything I thought I was supposed to, but eventually had to resort to the "Quick Site Links" and found my answers. If anyone else out there in blogspot or blogger wants to set up a list of songs through, then you should go to support forum and then choose Community Support. Then select Playlist User Help Log. The first selection is underlined "click here to find our temporary help log". When that screen shows up, under the heading of "Playlist Help Sources" you need to select "Posting to specific sites". On the left under the heading of "Good Site list", select blogger/blogspot. After selecting this, you MUST move on to the comments.... the original information is irrelevant because of changes to blogspot. Scroll down through the "comments" looking for Kathleen White, August 19 and 20. Very helpful for me to get my thing to work. Hope that's a little bit clearer than mud to any of you looking to post a little free music to your blog page.

I had such a good time finding songs... and I'll probably update my list from time to time. Even though it was a little tough for my non-geeky side to try to figure out... I highly recommend to those of you who like music... and think it might be nice for the "someones" out there to identify with. I love so many different types and styles of music. I think I spent about 3 hours or more just listening to music from my past and enjoyed every moment. So, if you want to see into "who I think I am..." then please, scroll down and start my playlist. I believe you can start it, and listen to it while you visit other pages, at least while my "blog" is open. Have a good visit. I love my music... :)

Tomorrow I think I shall attempt to upload some pictures I have taken... over the past few hours... into the last few months. I'll have to spend a couple of days looking that over and trying to figure it out. I'm hoping it's a little easier than the music lesson, but I tend to be a perseverant person... so, I'm hoping 2 days or less.

I can't wait to do the picture thing though. I'm enjoying taking pictures of so many things. My inspiration first comes from my husband, who is a wonderful "amature" photographer. He also has a digital camera, which I have confiscated (ssshhhhh), and I've taken pictures for over a year, downloaded to my laptop computer (which crashed - not once but twice), yes, I'm going for a 3rd time... hopefully more prepared. Anyhow, when I downloaded the pics, I did not have the camera delete the pictures. They're still there!!! I'm so very happy. My second inspiration comes from Cindy, from Her photography is amazing. Also, I'm proud to announce that I knew a little bit about her before she bacame "famous" on HGTV's "Rate My Space". She'll be on October 2nd, I believe. That's her first airing, but I believe it will be aired 2 or 3 times more after that. Just check out "Rate my Space"'s tv schedule. Anyhow, I'm going to work on pictures this coming week and tell everyone about my business, which is called "Penny For Your Thoughts"... my name is Penny... (hello?)... and I live a dream-life of my own business... which I sincerely need a kick in the butt for motivation. But, once you hear my story... you may actually sympathize with me... just's hopin'.

God Bless,

P.S. - How do you like my selection of music? Be honest, k? I can take it... I'm Irish... mostly! :) And if I don't... I just come out swingin'... :)

The main focus of this blog is to share with you all about my life and my shop. They are so closely intertwined, it is impossible to separate them from each other. There is such a wonderful story behind so much of the past two or well... maybe more like 5 years. I look forward to unraveling it as is seen fit for this blog. I hope to gain some friends here, but don't know how they will find me. God will lead.

It is very late, and I need to get some sleep. I had my son and daughter-in-law here this weekend, and I've been very busy. I don't have as much energy as I used to about 4 or 5 years ago... but, I'm trying. Nighty-Night!

God bless... again...
