Getting Organized Continues



1. Gather up my story.
I have started my stories of my life and the pages are scattered to the four corners of the web. Well, maybe not that far but the pages are here and there. I have already started putting the pages I have found in one folder. The goal is for my grandchildren to have a record of my life.

Update: I have found all my pages except the start of my story about my life as a 'Carnie'. But when I figure out this Windows 10 talking instead of typing program I will be golden.

I put all my pages on Grammarly which is free and you can upgrade.
I also found SlickWrite
Many thanks to Becky at Organizing Made Fun for giving me lots of ideas. She has a great blog which I have followed since I started blogging last July 2015.

2. Sort Out Pinterest
I have I think thirty boards and somewhere along the line my pins need to be transferred to the correct board. I worked on that yesterday completing one board. Twenty-nine to go.

3. Photos
I once tried putting a search from the start menu for photos and my desktop screen disappeared with thousands of photos covering it in an effort to get them all in one place. These photos are of course a story in themselves which I could use for my blog. I have had Photobucket for years now, leaving it to be covered in cyber dust. In coming back it looks like my brain, scattered.

Update: I can't cross this off yet but my photos are basically all in one area on my desktop ready to sort.

4. Memories for Posts
Being fifty-seven I have had the most amazing memories that I want to post about. The helping part of me. Again, where do I start? Maybe a name change which I have no idea how to do that.

Update: I have made Thinking Back Tuesday solid. I just wish I could put all my thinking on hold when I go lay down for the night!

5. Teaching Myself Blogging
I have bookmarked a list of reading material to elevate my understanding of blogging. I stopped bookmarking, for now, I have to go back and read them.

6. The Fun Stuff
I want to learn about the fun side of blogging. The pictures you can do yourself, etc.

Update: I made Dora here at https://makeameme.org/

Update: When I'm not so bone tired I will make a list of the Blogs I have bookmarked and the links.

So there you have it. I love seeing something that means a lot to me moving forward, making a list helps.

I love learning new words or being reintroduced to one. I ran across a list of them and will add a word a day.

Word#45 Inveterate: habitual, persistent

In a sentence: My ToDo List has become inveterate.
