Blogging Topic Contest

I’ve got writer’s block, so a week or so ago, I asked my Linden’s Pensieve Facebook fans to make some suggestions for things I can write about, with the winner getting a prize.

I got three responses with multiple ideas each… Now it’s time to take this competition to the next level!

Head on over to my Facebook Page photo album called Blogging Topic Contest, read the suggestions, then like the one that contains your favorite idea. Then, if you are so inclined, leave  a comment on that picture sharing your favorite topic from that image. I’ll do my very best to write about the idea that you all like!

Mike, Venita, Lorraine: share the contest! Winner gets a $5 iTunes gift card. It’s not much, but who wants to pass up $5?

The voting ends Friday, September 21, at 6:00 PM

It’s a year and one debilitating* knee injury later, and while I’ve gained most of that weight back, I feel like I’ve made some significant changes in my life, changes that will eventually lead to a healthy Linden, which was my main goal in the Great Fitness Blogging Experiment and still is now.

Independence Day Snuggles [Wordless Wednesday]

The pictures in this collage were taken over 4 hours on the afternoon of 4th of July while I was reading Murakami’s 1Q84. Rowdy snuggled with me no matter what position I was reading in. More proof that Vizslas deserve the nickname “Velcro Dog“! Continue reading
