A whole lot of craziness!


So for those who don't know I only post really long post about sending you to other places on this blog. Normally they are post that are just too long for Facebook and have to many links to other places to be put on one of those other places.

So here goes nothing! Warning: I did say this was a long post.

First let me give you a bit more info about me.

I am an introvert. I don't handle crowds very well. I don't handle gatherings for very long. I like the online business because I can hide behind my computer screen.

I also am a jump first think second type of person. I can plan things out all day every day but when it comes to jumping in or following the plan I always jump first. I'm great at helping others and developing organized well thought out step plans but I am Horrible at following them myself. That also goes for advice too. I can give you great advice all day long but I am really bad at following my own advice.

Because of the above I find myself in a sea of chaos, stress, late deadlines, and chasing my tail most the time. Again I can help others get structured, organized, etc but I am bad bad bad at following my own teachings. I don't do plans, schedules, or routines very well.

I have my hands in a lot of different things all at one time. I juggle too many hats most the time and have a problem of passing any on. Even tho I opened up to add employees to the Literary team I still can't seem to diligently give out task to be done. I also do the #1 thing you should NEVER do... I compare myself to others and always always find myself coming up short in the compare chart. I am never as good as anyone else. I'm sure I am doing something right I just can't see it.

I am also that person who goes off on vacation and buys everyone but myself something. I tend to put other people before myself often. I will even buy my husband a candy bar and a drink before I will buy myself deodorant. Its that bad. I have a huge heart and I care about helping others. Helping other people is my passion and is why I do what I do. I always want to give others something. Advice, knowledge, crafts, etc. There is always someone else getting help as the driving force behind things I do.

So that is just the tip of the iceberg about info about me... So onto this long blog post.

I have 17 different blogs/facebookgroups/facebook pages that I have. I also have 24 subscription based newsletters/magazines that I run. I also have a full time job as a pharmacy tech. I also am an author under 2 different pen names with over 50 WIP's on my computer (6 published books).


So here is a list of blogs/Groups/Pages/Subscriptions that I have that you can sign up for!

Politics. Really Politics are one of those things that can tear a family apart. Did you speak to your Uncle Bob since before the election? What about third cousin sally sue? We believe what we believe and we stand strong behind that belief and if you don’t believe that well sorry but you’re just wrong. This is my take on the current selections. I don’t take one side or the other. I read the information for myself from multiple sources (because lets face it every party owns a few news sources). The newsletter includes current issues, thoughts presented, and so on. Sometimes I probably will go off on a rant about how the next generation is being brought up in insanely stupid ways. But anyway it will mostly be USA National news. Because I only live in one state and if you don’t live here you don’t care whats going on here.

History has always been my favorite subject. So naturally I went into a science and English field of work lol. But seriously I love history and learning about history. I also have come across more than a dozen times where my history book just didn’t match the facts that historians were pulling out of the ground. Records of true events seem a smidge off from what my history class told me. So I am bringing the truth to the surface one story at a time. Some crazy myths, legends, an urban legends could actually be true. And what you thought you knew about history could be a lie. Newsletter would include historical findings, myths and legends that could be true, random historical stories that actually could be fiction, contest, and more.

Tornado Seal of Approval started as a blog to review dog toys because my dog would go through those ‘unbreakable’ toys like they were paper. It was going to be fun and humorous to see how many toys he could demolish. Well shortly after the idea sparked some personal things happen (Divorce) and me and my dog found ourselves moving. Fast forward to now… we currently now have 3 dogs, 4 cats, 1 parrot, 1 tarantula, and 1 bearded dragon. We are hoping to be able to get a few more birds, fish, red crabs, ball python, anole, chameleon, scorpion, and a few more pets along the way. The newsletter with this includes reviews of animal toys, treats, foods, and more. Plus fun treats to make your fur kid. And sometimes even contest.

2017... Bringing New Life to a new chapter


2017 THE NEW YEAR OF NEW ADVENTURES


As 2017 rounds the corner I am here to point you into the direction of why you originally even followed this blog. I have moved all my old content to WordPress. As blogger has been a lovely base for me and showed me much love I have had one or two issues with them. One of which is they deleted a blog and wiped away two years of blog post for no reason and would not answer me when I tried to find out why they did it. 

So WordPress is where I went... and as I went I decided that my blogs would branch out into their topics instead of one blog of mix match. This way people get what they want to follow instead of someone getting notice I wrote a blog post about something they don't really care about. I would absolutely love if you'd please go over and follow the blogs on WordPress. 

Each blog has its own set of facebook and twitter links if you're interested in following it on those sites as well.
