Back to the Basics

This morning I went to an awesome workshop led by Lela Davidson.  Lela is an online genius!  Her experience and direction was just the boost I needed to refocus my blog.  Blogging Basics is a three hour workshop packed with resources, action plans & idea generating systems all aimed at increasing readership or just creating a more interesting space for your readers to come hang out.  There's nothing like spending time with other writers to encourage a writer, even if said writer is mostly just a wanna-be.

Lately, my page has taken a more serious tone and I find myself journaling more about my spiritual musings than documenting my Plain Jane tendencies.  Blogging Basics helped me to declutter my mind, brainstorm a list of things I want to focus on, and hop onboard.  Hopefully, you'll start see the fruit of today's class here on "Plain & Simple As That" as I write more focused articles about living life without worrying about the Joneses.   I can't wait to get started on some of the ideas I wrote down today.  Maybe with all this inspiration, I'll start another blog.  If you ever get the chance to take one of Lela's courses, you'll walk away ready to get typing!  ~ Plain & Simple As That


  1. I can't wait to see what you share with all of us..

  2. This is the sweetest thing! Thank you. And you ARE a writer. AND a wanna-be. We all are.

  3. That means the the world to me Lela. In the realm of writers, you're on my list of "most admired." I covet your ability to say a lot, and to make it funny, with just a few words! Pure Talent!
