It’s time for the September Edition of Currently!

.Currently

So, this month, I’m currently:
 
Watching:

SCANDAL!!!!!!!! Hallelujer!!!!! The old Liv is back, Jake is GETTING IT IN and Mellie is walking around like it’s 1976. Chile…. And How To Get Away With Murder was good too. Needless to say, my bottle of wine is gone, but my Daddy would be proud of my lack of hangover. Just sayin…

 

Listening to:

Podcasts. There are so many. Do you listen to any? Share!!!

Planning:

My Everyday Eyecandy Newsletter! Have you signed up?? No? CLICK HERE!! I’ve got plans folks that I would love for you to be a part of. And of course I’d love feedback from you guys: If you were to take a class on photography what would you like the topic to be? 1) Photography for Bloggers or 2)Mobile photography or 3) BOTH? Let a sister know in the comments, by email and by signing up.:-)

Thinking about:

Blog Conferences. I went to Type A last weekend as you know and it got me thinking about Blogging Conferences. The last few blog conferences I’ve gone to have been…interesting. I always network so much at these events and meet great new bloggers and catch up with old ones. BUT I’m not learning anything like I used to . I used to come away from blog conferences with LOADS of action plans and ideas and inspiration. That’s what got me hooked. Blog conferences can give you ideas for months and light a fire in you to do more.  But with the last two I attended, I didn’t get that. I don’t know if that’s because I’m not a beginner blogger anymore or if the content just isn’t there.   I think it’s a bit of both.  In order for these conferences to be worth it for me anymore, I need more meat in the presentations and less fluff. I need speakers to SPEAK on what they are supposed to talk about, not have a love fest of “I did this, I did that”. I need more HOW you did it, not just that you did.

Like my friend Dani says: I just need to get up there and speak.

But that’s a post for another day….

Looking forward to:

FALL! The pumpkin patch, the apple orchard, boots, chunky sweaters, Caramel Brulee Latte’s…..But Umm, it’s hard to get excited when you can wear flip flops while the leaves are changing….

Currently
Reading:

The entire Outlander series. I read most of this series when it first came out when I was in the 10th grade. ( yes, a loooooong time ago). But it’s been adapted to cable ( see Starz) and it got me curious about the more recent books. I remember the basic outline of the books( there are now 8 of them) but I don’t  remember most of the details. Soooo…I’m on book 4. They are obsessive. These will take me into the rest of the year.

Making me Happy:

This ussie. It’s not perfect, but it’s Us. I love my little family.

So that’s all with me, what’s currently going on in your life??

    you already know I am signed up for the newsletter and I would LOVE both courses! I agree with Blogging conferences not being the way they used to be…I think that is why I have decided to only do 2 next year…but that could change. of course. 🙂 I am officially team #olake I mean, who the heck turned up the sexy on Jake. I mean DAMN. I might need to watch it one more time tonight…

    I love Fall too, but sadly the leaves aren’t really falling here in Flrida and it’s still quite warm

    I know what you mean about blog conferences. I find that I have to pick sessions that are outside my normal interests, and those often end up being more interesting and inspiring than going to yet another session about the same topics I normally think I’ll be interested in.

    I am dying to see Scandal tonight, I had to DVR. I love when fall tv comes back. I have been looking forward to going to blogger conferences but I am very new so would probably get a lot out of them. We shall see I guess!

    I’m so happy you felt the same way I did in regards to the conference we attended. At first, I felt like a snobby b**** complaining about the conference but hey, that’s the way I felt and plus I was upset because I had other plans I had to cancel.

    I think you should do both with your photography class. As you can see, I’m new to the game of photography and I need all the help I could get!

    Nothing really going on with my life besides doing a media event tomorrow. I’ll take that time to learn to take professional looking photos.

    I watched Scandal last night too and I just wasn’t into it. To be honest, I’ve never really liked it, but I love the aspect of Olivia solving crimes which is probably why I LOVED “How to Get Away with Murder!” Did you watch that afterwards? It was so good!

    Also, in terms of podcasts, do you listen to Myleik Teele’s podcast? I love it! Lastly, I know what you mean about blog conferences. I attending Blogalicious last year and LOVED it. They have a new theme each year though so I think that makes a huge difference.

    I have vowed not to pay for another conference or class teaching me how to blog. There is nothing there that I don’t already know. Now it’s time for action, and really I hold that card so I shall not be swiping my card for any more events except Mom 2.0.

    Look at your chunky little cute fat toes!!

    I’ve got to up my photography game. I do a lot with my iPhone and will probably get a lens for it too.
    But I’m also looking for a digital camera w/ wifi.
    Can’t wait to read about your next class!
