Instructional Designer or Miracle Worker?
Take this quiz to find out! The quiz is a tumblr poll, because I can’t find the “question block” that I love and use dearly at work.
How Do I Show Love?
It’s today’s prompt: https://bloganuary.wordpress.com/2023/01/24/how-do-you-show-love/ I show love in ways big and small, private and public, and I tailor my approach as I get to know the person (or being, or thing — I love a lot!) better. Much like how my instructional design gets tailored to the learners with each iteration. My default is food—…
I’m catching up on the latest bloganuary posts. I know these daily prompts are meant to inspire…good writing, or maybe taking the time to plan and craft your words. But I’m a rapidfire blogger. You might get that kind of deep post once in a while, but it’s rare. Ok, prompts! What color describes your…

When I feel overwhelmed, my tendency is to shut down or distract myself with frivolous things — anything to take me out of what I’m feeling. That never goes well. And lately, overwhelm is fading, in favor of annoyance — why do…
Playing with Blocks
For my second-ever post on this newfangled blog, I’m following a lesson in a FREE (yes, FREE!) new course, which you can read all about on the WordPress.com blog. And since the lesson asks me to create a post using three different block types, why not use one of those right here, to make that…
…Is that still a thing in 2021? It’s how I created my first website, and first message to the world (or at least the world of the internet). If you’re seeing this post, don’t get too excited. I’m just playing around. I have many abandoned blogs and websites. Let’s see it this one sticks! Still…
