Coffee near me – Weekend Coffee Share

Howdy and Happenings

Ok, it has been an amazing week. Let’s chat over coffee. It’s going to be cool and rainy in the mornings, so I will want coffee near me. Pull up a chair and your favorite coffee beverage. How was your week? Was it great or did you have any crises? Mine was good. I got some good research done on book marketing. Got the new front page activated on the blog along with some cool sharing tools. I would love to hear what you have say about the redesign. Both the good and the bad are welcome.

Upcoming blog activity and mentions

Author Scott Pratt

Scott Pratt

I have an author interview with Scott Pratt, author of the Joe Dillard legal thriller series, coming out next week. I am guest blogging on Writeonsisters.com on May 31st. I got a nice mention from Janice at My Current News and in the comments of Joe Writes This Blog comments by Infinitely Remote. I’m sure there are other, but it’s been a crazy week and I’m heading out the door any minute. I hope your blogs continue to grow do well. I would love to hear how you are doing.

Weekend Blog and Coffee Break

How’s your coffee? Need a re-fill? I’m going to take a bit of break this weekend and visit my dad. I do love being able to write and schedule posts in advance. Have you had a chance to take my short survey on what’s important to you? I will be collecting data up until June 15th. Please take the survey and share it with all your friends, family, neighbors, acquaintances, church groups, book clubs, inmates, etc. The more data I can get, the better. I still need to write this weekend. I have a goal of 1000 words per day. Some days I make, some days not, but I need the goal. It helps keep me focused and the coffee keeps me awake.  Have a great weekend.

Don’t forget to write your own #WeekendCoffeeShare and sign up on the Linky over at Parttime Monster.

    I’m glad you got your new front page up. I will take a look at it and explore when I have a few minutes. At first glance I found it confusing as to where the post for today is/was because of the bold “subtitles” and it took me a bit to figure out where to comment. But that’s me and I’m probably slower than normal these days. Have a good visit with your dad. That’s important time. I just lost my dad last Saturday so I won’t have anymore visits with him. Don’t waste yours.

      Sorry to hear about your dad Corina. We lost mom 4 years ago and it hit dad pretty hard. He is doing great for being 92, but he has aged a lot in the last 4 years. Thanks for the feedback. I’ll be reviewing all my click stats next week 🙂

    Thanks for the coffee, going to check out your new blog in a few. I remember you saying you were converting over, now I see what you mean. So far it looks nice and streamlined, but I do miss that “follow” button from wp 🙂 Enjoy your visit with your dad, and have a great weekend. Paula

    I liked your other blog Shawn and I like this one two! Not sure if I prefer one over the other. I do not like the slide in sign up thingies. It’s just something that gets in my way and I have to X it. I do all my reading from my blogger reader. Otherwise, whatever make YOU happier.
    I’ve made my post at Life & Faith in Caneyhead.

    Hello! I’m happy I found your blog. I really like your daily word count goal. When I participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this past November, I hit about a thousand words a day–mostly freewriting, but it’s something right? Looking forward to reading more of your posts. Have a great rest of your weekend.

      Welcome and thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. I find it is good to have a target just don’t beat yourself up much when you don’t make it. It happens 🙂

    Thanks for the coffee. Sounds like things are going well for you recently. I like the redesign, but I have two suggestions:
    1. add an about link on the front page (people like the about page)
    2. change the green color to a different shade or color.
    Green is a color many people have a hard time seeing, and this shade is not easy on the eyes. Of course, this is my opinion and you can feel free to ignore it.

      Thanks for your input! I thought a bit on adding the about link but did not. I will reconsider. Would you prefer a more broccoli green 🙂 ?
