How to create a web blog.

Lots of good information.

Sylvia Liu I'm a long time fan of 12x12, and wrote two blog posts about it, one in early 2013 about all of its benefits ( and one in early 2014 about how it fosters creative community ( The second post is a bit wonky cuz I had just finished a book on creativity.

Unwelcome Visitor

I had a visitor yesterday, who will be staying about a week or two.
I am going to do my best to see this doesn't happen.
No big meals, soup is on the menu as long as I can hold out.

The bed will prove to be uncomfortable.
Walking the floor or setting up, will prove to be more restful.

One big problem, the visitor totally bugs me.
I can't help it, the visitor brought  me horrible gifts
such as; fever, cough and restlessness.

So... beware of the unwelcome visitor
who calls itself - The Bug, The flu or The Cold.
