Y is for Yes

Yes!  It’s true that the letter of the day for the Blogging A to Z Challenge is the letter Y. And the word for the day is YES!

Why Yes for the letter Y?  Yes is a nice positive word.  Yes, Please.  Yes, I would love to have pizza for dinner.  Yes, I would love to have ice cream for dessert.  Yes, I think and talk too much about food!

But seriously.  Yes, I am almost to the end of the Blogging A to Z Challenge!  I don’t actually believe it.  It’s seemed like a very long month.  I’m happy that I’ve participated.  I’ve learned a great deal about myself as a blogger and I’ve learned to stretch my wings when it comes to topics and how I approach them.  My friend Helen at Views from the Porch saw that I was doing the A to Z and was inspired to do the letters in her name.  What a great idea!  She has a Much longer name than I have so she has a lot more to work with!

I started this blog because I love to write.  For over a year now, I’ve been working my way through things, learning what I like, what I don’t like.  Going with good suggestions from others, coming up with some things on my own.  I have learned that I don’t need to hold myself to writing about the same things or in the same way all the time.  That’s what I love about writing.

I got some positive comments when I used a piece of my poetry last week.  I think I’ll do that more often from now on.  I write about books a lot and I will continue to do so.  Hopefully, I can find some I like…haven’t had a lot of success at that lately! 😉

I hope that Broken Cookies Don’t Count can continue to grow as I grow.  I plan on some changes, updating my “About” page for one thing and adding some of my “before” Weight Watchers photos which should amuse you all.  Maybe some updating on the layout, if I can figure out how to do it!

I won’t stray too far from what you’re used to.  I just hope to make it better.

So in the meantime…I say Yes to trying new things in the adventure that is blogging and is my life in general.  Hope you stay along for the ride.  As the snail said when he was riding on the back of the turtle…WHEEEE!!!! (That’s one of my all time favorite jokes!!)  YES…it really is!!

Happy Saturday!!  “Z” you on Monday with the final day of the Blogging A to Z Challenge.

  1. i will say wheee!! we’re almost at the end of the challenge! for me, the month went really fast – it seems like we were just on a,b,c!…
    thanks for sharing your thoughts about blogging and writing, fran. i am with you, there are changes i would like to make to my blog, but i don’t really know how – and i guess i am not that motivated to figure things out!
    i love how you talk about saying YES. for the last two years or so, i have made a conscious effort to say YES more often when i would be inclined to say NO. little things, bigger things…it has meant i need to think before i speak…and i do forget and revert to NO sometimes. YES is such a positive word and brings more positivity into our lives, i do believe!
    i am glad you said YES to the idea of blogging ~ i enjoy your writing and getting to know you more with each blog post.

  2. You are so adorable, Fran! I’ve known you and have loved you for a very long time but if I DIDN’T know you personally, I would be your blog friend. Everyone out there in “blogger space” ….you are getting the real deal. How Fran writes is, well….Fran. “Y” am I so blessed to know Fran personally?! Can I say she’s “yummy” without sounding cannibalistic? (Just jumping in with the alphabet challenge…not trying to insult the vegetarian.) Love you, my friend.

    • Judy, I’m the lucky one to have you as part of our family and as my friend. You always have been and will always be one of my favorite people!! I don’t think I’ve ever been referred to as “yummy”…I kind of like it!! Hugs, Aunt Judy!!!!

  3. Your excellent post makes me think of the Jim Carrey movie Yes Man, wherein he has to say yes every time someone asks him a question. I think it would do me good to say yes a lot more in my life!

    Best wishes on the evolution of your blog!

  4. What a great post! I’m looking forward to seeing what you do. I’ll definitely stay along for the ride. 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Haha, love the joke 😉
    I’ve really enjoyed your A to Z posts and like the way you’ve been writing abotu different things; I look forward to reading as the blog does grow more.

  6. Yes is a GREAT word! And YES this challenge is finally done. (Well, I cheated. I put up Z a day early just to be done with it.) I’m looking forward to your updated about page!

  7. I did Y is for Yes too! But I like yours better – just dropping by from A/Z Challenge – fun!
