It's been a good day. I got alot done; deposited some money in my bank account for my first tuition payment, attempted to get a birthday card for my dad (failure. Hallmark seems to be making their business by selling rude and crass things now), and swung by the library to pick up some reading material and take care of renewing my card.

When I got home, I did a bit of home maintenance by the way of replacing some of the light switches. The kitchen switch gave me a bit of a headache til I realized a three-way switch is different from a normal one, so... I'll probably hit Menard's later to pick up the correct one. I have some other projects to work on in the coming week; we'll see how much of it I actually get done.

Our dishwasher had some issues earilier this week, resulting in not-very-clean dishes piling up, and some ickiness getting baked on, so while dinner cooked this evening, I re-washed everything by hand. While washing dishes is not normally something I seek out voluntarily, it was surprisingly pleasant to stand there immersed to my elbows in hot soapy water, watching a pile of squeaky clean dishes emerge. I felt very satisfied looking at the sparkling kitchen when I finished... which amazingly enough, coincided with dinner being ready. Great timing!

The down side to trying to post on a daily basis is... you run out of things to write about pretty quickly. :) So I guess I'll write more tomorrow!

(normally I dislike animated icons, but this one just makes me giggle. Yay for Zoidberg! )

I saw that you added me to your Friends list, so I added you to mine and dropped by here to browse.

I have several tricks for posting:

1) Periodically ask your audience what topics they enjoy most, and keep a list of those. Look at it when you need inspiration.

2) Figure out your main themes. For each theme, come up with one or more questions that can be repeated periodically. Also think of repeatable maintenance tasks. Jot those on a desk calendar, starting with the day your LJ gets the most traffic. Mine are mostly on Mondays, and I do things like checking my LJ statistics and pimping friends' journals for networking.

3) Subscribe to some feeds on topics you like. Copy a link and then give your personal take on that article.

4) Link clouds are great fun. Summarize a topic and collect links on various aspects of it.
