Changes Afoot

Hello all… I’m going to jump right in… I’ve been restless with the blog.  Not sure how I’ve felt about it for a while now.  Do I get rid of it?  Keep going?  Change platforms?  Change the look?  Change?  Stop?  Change?  It’s a sort of weird mantra.  This annoying question. I created a page atContinue reading “Changes Afoot”

The Times They are a Changin’

I have, for months and months, and maybe even longer, been thinking about changing the title of this blog.  Which, if you read the description of how I originally came up with the title for the blog, you may think is ironic.  Thinking thinking thinking, mulling mulling mulling.  It goes something like that.  But, lifeContinue reading “The Times They are a Changin’”

The Images Are Coming

For several years now I’ve authored more than one blog.  There’s Tam’s Think Tank, where I post everything from movie reviews to essays about life to music I find interesting, the work blog, TJ Parker Photography, and a blog called image-ination, where I’ve done several 365 photography projects over the years.  Keeping the Think TankContinue reading “The Images Are Coming”

Boxes to Fill and It’s Raining Outside

I’m sitting here at the computer not doing what I’m supposed to be doing, but then… exactly what am I supposed to be doing? Packing. Yes, I should be packing. Books into tubs to take, kitchen glasses, plates, etc. Those are my tasks. I need to get to them. Yet, I blog, I surf, IContinue reading “Boxes to Fill and It’s Raining Outside”

A Little Construction Is Needed

I was looking over my blog yesterday, and today a bit I must say, and noticed that some things have not been updated in over a year.  Music preferences, books I’ve read or am reading, and such and so forth.  Admittedly I’ve been a tad busy over the last several months, but now… well nowContinue reading “A Little Construction Is Needed”

This is sort of a non-post post.  Which suddenly just made me think of post toasties.  Wasn’t that a cereal once?  Or possibly still?  But, I digress.  Here’s the deal.  Most of you who know me know I’m a bonafide geek.  Very nerdy, in a cool flip flops and t-shirts tokenhippygirl kinda way.  I loveContinue reading “Testing The Twitter Link”

Playing Around With The Blog

Lately I’ve been trying on new looks for the blog.  WordPress has several templates to choose from and me, being me, had to check out a few.  If you’ve visited a couple of times you’ve probably seen some of them.  The most recent is my favorite I think.  I know some people don’t like theContinue reading “Playing Around With The Blog”
