New Blogging Tips, Distractions and Elizabethian Collars


It was crazy around here this last week. So crazy that I could have used an Elizabethian Collar. You know, those upside down lamp shade things dogs wear around their necks to prevent them from licking their wounds after surgery?

I know, I had no idea they were called that, either. If you are curious, as I was, they are named after Queen Elizabeth I , who wore those big poofy collars. So there, you learned another piece of useless information.

Right here on the Judy Lee Dunn blog.

I figured that a collar like that would be just the thing to help me focus. Something to keep me from bouncing off the walls. A device that would help me focus on just one thing at a time.

Because I had multiple deadlines with content for the pre-launch of the new bobWP online course membership site and a book to read for a review deadline and guest posts to write,  not to mention things like a vet visit for the cat and several other blog posts to edit.

Why am I telling you this?

Because I have had no time to write for my own blog. But I leave you with some of the other things I’ve recently written online. Here’s hoping you find some useful gems to help you in your blogging and content development.
