      Well when I got on the internet today and logged onto OLA.COM I went to the chats and I got a wake up call.

      Kornkountrytreasures , who blogs every day and who I issued challenge to in December of 2011 when the "blog a day" for the month of November was over. I challenged her to a blog a day anyway after the November challenge. She took me up on it and has been doing her part, I however let her down.

      I did good during December but it seemed that 2012 brought issues which I used to not blog. I did not mean to not blog I just had hard times finding things to blog about and also finding time while I was listing and listing every day getting ready for my sale.

      I got all wrapped up in m life and did not forget the blog but did not do it every day. Well today I could not think of anything to blog about right off my head but I can think of a lot of things I need to get done and items ready to get mailed out today. No excuses any more.

     So I said I will blog about what a great person Amy is. She has a busy life also BUT she blogs every day, she goes to the chats and looks for people to help with whatever problem they may be having and she does help. People like Amy amaze me. They seem to be so organized and things seem to come easy to them and then I wonder if they ever have a problem and need help themselves. I saw in a chat that Amy could not get her computer to do something with a photo that others had no problem with. I am sure she will figure it out.

      Amy pointed out that there are a number of people who are signed up for the ola team blog and if we all did one a week it would help. As I said before I plan on trying my best to blog each day or at least every other day. Amy you are so right. I saw what it did for our ratings in November 2011 with Fleapirates blog a day challenge.  I think so many of us forgot what that month did for our ratings. We went from the bottom to the top because so many helped and blogged about so many different subjects.

     Krautrock is a newer member but he is doing his part and it makes me feel like I  am letting more down than just Amy. Dirk, thank you for blogging and letting us know about your home country. It is beautiful as are your listings you offer for sale. I fee like I am letting down OLA also and my fellow members.

      So I got my kick in the pants this morning and my wake up call that OLA.COM will only grow and move on up as far as it's members want it to. I want it to grow and move up and am making another commitment to help that happen and asking all who are members of the team blog to please try to find time to help get us back where we were in November.

      Thank you all so much for reading my blog, thanks Amy for kick in the pants, thanks Dirk for blogging and also thanks to Curiocache and Supergranny  for your blogs and comments. I think it helps a lot for bloggers to see the comments that are left also as it means their blog was not done only for them but others like their blogs and shared them and +1 googled them.

     You will see me here again tomorrow and each day to follow as best I can, even if I have to share a clever email or copy and paste an interesting article.

Please leave a comment as they count to me. Be safe, be healthy and be happy

I have to say as I read this post (not a blog but a post) I was trying to guess who authored it and decided it could be a whole bunch of us so was surprised to see it was Chatey who has posted alot more than I have. So if she thinks SHE was kicked in the comeuppance was far worse than a kick!!

I can come up with lots of excuses including my brain has dried up....I'm so concerned about our country and political situation and I won't post about that here but on my personal blog..Supergrannys Musings. I will make an effort...thank you......

We all seem to go through cycles where we have more time and motivation than at other times... that's why the "team" aspect is so successful.

As for me, I finally feel like I have a weekend that I can hibernate indoors and get some things accomplished online, like some fresh new auctions and maybe even a post! :)

Ah, don't feel bad!! I've been reminded MANY times when I first started!! (oh, so many times)

We do get wrapped up in our worlds. Just right now, I'm not doing too much so I can. But life does happen and it isn't always conveniently happening with what we want.

So, you guys, don't take it personal!! I did not mean to make anyone feel bad, just a reminder.

I'm thankful for when you guys do post!! I get a kick outta them!! I'm bored outta my mind!! Need some fun things to read!! LOL!!
