Here I Go, Again!

I haven’t written anything to this blog for a while and frankly it’s because I have no inspiration. The blog was originally meant to be my posts about living my life with Sarcoidosis, but really, I don’t have very much to say anymore on my condition that hasn’t already been said. Then I got an…

Happy Anniversary To Me!

  It’s hard to believe that I started this blog six years ago today. How time and life flies by within a blink. Thanks to everyone that has followed me, commented on and liked my post over the years. Even those that challenged me. I learned a lot and hope to learn even more. 

Unchallenging Myself

I received an email letting me know that the April A to Z blogging challenge registration was coming up on January 25th. I participated that last couple of years and getting this email I not only decided not to participate on this blog ( I probably will on my photography blog), but I realized that…

My New Photography Blog

I started a new blog today. It’s called Life As An Anomaly In Photos. Photography is my other passion, and I decided to start a separate blog with my photos. No theme. Just photos. Be sure to check it out.   Written by Basil Rene © 2016 All Rights Reserved

Who Came Up With Only Twenty Four Hours In A Day?

It has been an exhausting past few months, and admittedly, my blog has suffered the consequences. There is so much I wanted to write about, all sitting at the tips of my typing fingers, but never to make it onto the virtual keypad of my tablet. I am physically and emotionally exhausted. My body is…

Slapping Myself In The Face

Yesterday I was trolling WordPress in one of my few moments of down time and was reading a blog post over at a blog I do not subscribe to, when I found the post vaguely familiar. The more I read the post, I realized that I read this some where else before. The more I…

What Are You Afraid Of Mr. & Ms. Blogger?

When I read a blog post, I want the opportunity to comment or say if I like it. More and more I come across blogs that have the option to comment or to like missing. In WordPress, it is by default on the blog, and you have the option to remove the comment and the…

Yep, I Changed The Look Of My Blog Again

If you have been following my blog for some time, then you would realize that I change the visual theme of my blog about twice a year. I like to look at it as re-painting my home. Feel free to let me know if you like it. I am not too keen on the grey…

There Is A Blogger’s Etiquette

I follow a few blogs, most of them on WordPress, and I go through my reader feed every morning and read the highlights of each new post, and if the teaser catches my fancy, I will read more, and even the entire thing if I like it. I would then click on the little “like”…

Is Blogging Really So 2006?

The other night I was looking on the MAC App Store for a blogging app. I read an article recommending a certain app and I could not find it in the App Store. I googled it and the developer wrote that they were no longer offering the app as “Blogging is so 2006”. I wondered…

Using SIRI To Remember Ideas For Blog Posts

Ever drive down the road, see something really interesting that sparks and idea for a blog post and then you get to your destination only to forget what you saw and what you were going to post about? Well that happens to me more often than not. Then I realized that I use Siri on…

Some More Good News

I know that I said I was going to post some photos of my San Francisco trip, but alas, life caught up with me. The past three wells were crazy. My in laws were visiting for my wife's birthday, and work has been so crazy busy that I had time for nothing. My home office…

Where My Blog Goes From Here

I wrote in my last post about my wavering on whether to keep my blog going as the original theme basically no longer is there, and I didn't know if I had it in me to continue on. After some really very beautiful comments of encouragement and support, I was made to realize that I…

Has My Blog Reached Its End?

I recently posted that the results of my right heart catheterization showed that I no longer have heart failure or pulmonary hypertension, and I received some encouraging comments and a couple of emails, but of course, I did get the nay sayer, someone that thinks that I am not for real and that I am…

What The Blogging From A To Z Challenge Was Like For Me

For the month of April, or rather, most of the month, I took part in the Blogging a From A To Z Challenge, posting every day for the month of April (except Sundays), with each day being a post of each letter of the alphabet. This year, like last year, I did not have a…

Happy Anniversary

It's five years I have been at it here on WordPress sharing my ramblings! Thanks for sharing the time with me and looking forward to many more ramblings to come.     Written by Basil Rene © 2015 All Rights Reserved

A Is For Accusations! Who Are We To Judge?

THIS IS A BLOGGING A TO Z CHALLENGE POST April 1, 2015 – “A” A few years ago I was taking the train back home from New York City when a clean, well dressed young man came to my car and announced that he had his wallet stolen and that he did not have enough…

Tomorrow Is The Start Of The Blogging A To Z Challenge

It starts tomorrow and I have no “theme” idea for my Blogging A To Z April Challenge. I am not sure that I need one really. It will be a challenge in itself to come up with a post for each day of the month. If you are not familiar with the challenge, it is…

A Dedicated Visitor or A WordPress Glitch?

My blog averages about 50 visitors a day, with about twice as many views. Yesterday however, I had 31 visitors and 867 views. Either WordPress had a system glitch or someone pretty much looked at almost every post I had in one day. That's dedication. Hats off to you mystery visitor. Hats off to you….

Facebook Page Is Back By Popular Demand

They came by the thousands, banging on my virtual door, demanding that I reopen my FaceBook page! Okay, well it wasn't that many, but some of you requested I open back my FaceBook page so you can have the blog posts delivered to your news feeds, and I have succumbed. Welcome back Facebook users!  …

Pulling My Hair Out

Am I alone, or does anyone else find the WordPress app for iOS really annoying? For some reason when ever I use it to write a post (which is seldom now), and I schedule it for a future date, it posts it immediately. Does this happen to anyone else?   Written by Basil Rene ©…

The Blogging From A To Z April Challenge Is Coming

Hard to believe that the Blogging A To Z Challenge will be rolling around again soon. I just signed up here. I did it last year and it was a really fantastic challenge, which I am proud to say I completed. It works like this. Every day in April you write a new post, except…

I Changed My Theme

I think that I must have some form of ADHD. I get bored with my blog’s themes very quickly and so I changed my theme once again. Let me know what you think.
