What’s on your….?

In the last few months, I’ve immersed myself in the blogosphere as a means to learn how to be a better writer and blogger, to be inspired and to “meet” fellow bloggers.  There are so many wonderful blogs out there.  I often find myself lost in other people’s worlds and literally have to walk away from my desktop, in order to get any writing done!  (Writing tip – don’t bookmark favorite sites on your laptop, so that it’s extra work to find your favorite sites.)

Recently one of the blogs I follow, A Design So Vast, featured a meme about capturing right now (and referenced another blog, Ali Edwards, as the source of inspiration).  Check out both blogs, they’re wonderful.  I loved reading each writer’s answers, as well as the comments from their followers.  I wanted to feature the same meme on my blog.  This exercise reminded me of the spiral notebooks that were passed around in middle school.  On the first page, you’d pick a number and write your name, and then on each of pages that followed, there’d be a question for you to answer, by your designated number (favorite subject, favorite color, favorite song).  Do you remember those?

I loved Sunday’s premier double episode – The Doorway.  It was a darker episode and gave the viewers a lot to contemplate, many pivotal mad momments.  That’s one thing I love about Mad Men, I’m convinced that I know the characters and their motivations better than anyone!  On Monday mornings I scour the net looking for recaps and breakdowns and  I’m always amazed by the multitude of ways in which the various TV critics and bloggers interpret the episodes.  I usually find my favorite recap at Entertainment WeeklyContinue reading Everyone is mad for Mad Men!

Spring Break!
