Confident that someone wouldn’t have to be unusually perceptive, it’s not a stretch to assume you’ve gotten just a bit of a hint that I am somewhat OVER-THE-MOON, JUMPING-OUT-OF-MY-SKIN EXCITED about the Reynolds brothers visiting my blogs for a “chat” in celebration of International Dot Day 😁😍👍👏😎❣💥!!!!!!!
No “Dynamic Duo” is complete when you have one of a pair. Last week I had the pleasure of one cape-donning superhero dropping by: the amazing Paul Reynolds. This week none other than the pencil-and-brush-wielding Peter Reynolds is here. Needless to say, very much in “Lois Lane” fashion, I’ve been swept off my feet to circle the stars by their gracious presence and certainly their incredibly thoughtful, moving and inspirational responses to my questions. I’m betting you enjoyed Paul’s and are about to enjoy Peter’s too 😀 😎 (also posted on “Writer Side UP!“) Continue reading →
For those of you who’ve been following my blog since its launch, you may recall that at that time it had been planned to do Q&As with the Reynolds brothers, but due to life’s demands the posts had to be postponed. These are two busy guys. After all, what else would you expect from superheroes?! Well, I can tell you—they were worth the wait. When you read their sensitive, wise, affecting responses to my questions, their superpowers are crystal clear: words and actions that stem from passionate, sincere hearts. I’m SO honored to be hosting them as part of International Dot Day 2018 (just 2 weeks away, having been inspired by Peter’s book, The Dot!). This year, rather than creating my own little Dot, I think this is a MUCH better way to celebrate 🙂 ❤ Continue reading →
Well, faithful followers, since I’ve been bouncing ’round the blogosphere, I’ve noticed most blog owners commemorate their blogs’ anniversaries in one way or another. I don’t want to make a big “to do” about it, but do want to acknowledge, in some way, the milestones as they come 🙂
Hello, everyone! Welcome to my VERY FIRST “Lighter Side Up” Q&A! I am VERY excited about today’s perfect guest to christen my new blog and celebrate International Dot Day 2014! (See “Important Update” and for further celebration, my first Dot on Writer Side UP!) I’m sure, especially after hearing more about Terry, you’ll have questions and comments he’d love to address!
Not ’til recently, while researching as much as I could about Peter H. and Paul A. Reynolds, did I finally come to find out who Terry Shay is. I’d seen his name and handle on Twitter many times, but never got to investigating. Well—now I know!
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING AND IT’S FINALLY HERE!
Welcome to my humble internet abode! In your honor, I’ve been pushing hard to fix up the place (you know how it is when company’s coming 😉 ), so please, make yourself at home and feel free to look around!
The Navigation Bar is one big “treasure hunt” of pages jam-packed with descriptions of all the “goodies” you’ll come to find each time you visit. Some are already there just waiting to be discovered*, and you’ll find plenty of treats filling the Home Page sidebar and the footers on every page, too! So be sure to turn up the music—you’ll find the Play button on the sidebar! This IS a party, after all 😀
In fact, to do this in style, everyone (in the continental U.S. & Canada) has a chance to win Continue reading →
