maxresdefault (1)

Saturday is here which means that once again I will be sharing my opinions, musings, and writings with you.  Today I have a haiku about how time seems to stretch out into forever but soon it is gone leaving only memories in its wake.  It is called Forever Gone.

We had forever

But forever is so short

And soon it was gone

If you could go back in time which place or whom would you love to visit?

This one is hard.  I think I would go back in time to London during the 1700s or 1800s but then again I have always wanted to meet Robert E. Lee and Abraham Lincoln.  Or I could visit the Dark ages or the Renaissance. I don’t know.  I want to visit and see it all.

Camping or slumber party?

Camping!

Share the funniest moments of your life.

The funniest moment I can think of is when my sister told me that I had a mosquito on my face.  Without thinking I slapped myself in the face in an attempt to kill the mosquito.  I found out mere seconds later that there was no mosquito and that my sister was just joking.  It was hilarious.

Sharing Saturday Thirty-Two

Sharing Saturday is once again upon our doorstep.  Today I was looking back upon my old posts and seeing how my posts have changed since the beginning.  I look at what I have added and what I have dropped in my posts.  Blogging is a continual experiment.  An experiment to find what works, what is fun, what doesn’t work, and what people want to read.

So, what am I sharing today?  My blogging story?  No, I am going to show you a comparison of my first book review and the one I just recently posted.

Measurement First Book Review (An Ember in the Ashes) Most Recent Book Review (The Robber Bride) Difference
Total Words 112 words 390 278 words

Words spent on personal opinion 45 words 287 words 242 words
Words spent on explaining what the book is about 67 words 103 words 36 words
Number of Paragraphs 2 paragraphs 4 paragraphs 2 paragraphs

I notice the changes that I have wrought since I started this blog slightly over a year ago.  I know that my blog will change as I change and I am excited to see how my blog grows and changes.

Please leave a comment below on what you have changed about your blog through the months or years.

Sharing Saturday Thirty-One

Thirty-one weeks of Sharing Saturdays has reached us.  Time has just flown by me.  So, today I will share with you a poem I wrote about time.  It is about how we have little time on this Earth and we must use it wisely.  The poem is meant to be encouraging to show that each and every person is important in the scheme time has laid.

We are but minutes in the vast expanse of time

A single tiny thread in a grand tapestry

As one ends another continues

Without one thread or minute

The pattern of the world itself is disrupted
