Paranoid. Who me?

What is your immediate response when the views on your blog take a steep up tick and continue for more than one or two posts?
Is it:
1. Woo Hoo. Maybe I should run a couple of ads and make a little extra money.
2. Oh no. The hackers are after me.
3. Crap. I posted something that caught Big Brother's Eye.  Or another country's Big Brother.

My reaction:
1. Are pragmatists and positive thinkers....Lucky ducks.
2 and 3. Those of us who are paranoid, conspiracy theorists, fiction writers whose thoughts immediately go in a seething cauldron of speculation that takes us one step past the brink of  expected response and sometimes normality.

What about you? What is your reaction to an upsurge of views?

We've been getting caught up on movies. We saw a couple at the theater and a couple on the kid's wall:)  Here's what we've seen:

Murder On The Orient Express is chock full of stars and panorama and a mysterious storyline. We enjoyed it...You've got to love the mustache:)

Thor came perilously close to being over the top for us. But it's Thor/Chris Hemsworth so how can you not like it? Right?

The LEGO Batman Movie.  Cute, but I just couldn't reconcile the sexy Batman voice with the short stubby legs.

I very much enjoyed War For The Planet of The Apes. It had a deep, emotional draw.

Wink and A Nod AND Cat Christmas Tree

This week's Wink and A Nod recipient is Nasreen and Shariya's Love Affair with Food blog.
The blog is a fun one that features authors sharing their favorite recipes, bios and books. If you like to see what's new in contemporary romance or just like to find new recipes, I recommend this blog.

Wink, wink, Nasreen and Shariya.

So many blogs. So little time.


A pre-Christmas present from the HH.

IWSG Wednesday

The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Members post about their doubts and fears, discuss struggles and triumphs, and offer words of encouragement to others who are struggling.

 December 6 question - As you look back on 2017, with all its successes/failures, if you could backtrack, what would you do differently? 
Overall, I'm good with 2017.  Some of my advertising worked, some didn't.  Now 2018....hmmm.


If you haven't read it and would like to, help yourself to a holiday copy.  Free Dec 5-9.
