    >Time to Begin, Again

    >It looks as though my old blog may be gone for good. *sad faces* After all the fuss over the last week with the renewal it’s now looking like the renewal problems actually were resolved. And the problem that did away with my blog? A random WordPress blip it seems now I’ve managed to find the damn error log. I have got a support question into PowWeb (I put it in before I found the error log – that thing was well hidden!) but if it is WordPress they can’t/won’t help me. A couple of people on Facebook are computer type people so I’ve got my status at the moment…

    >101 in 1001 v2 (start date December 08)

    >My original list can be found here. Day Zero is arguably the home of the 101 in 1001 project online The Mission:Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days. The Criteria:Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on my part). Why 1001 Days? Many people have created lists in the past – frequently simple goals such as New Year’s resolutions. The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period…

    >101 in 1001 v1

    > 51 goals completed in 1001 days! This is the list that started it all (for me anyway). It ran from March 2006 to December 2008. It was brilliant fun and I completed approximately half of the goals. Several others I tried and failed.

    >Emma…

    > I’m working on a pretty major blog redesign and as a part of that figured this “About me” page needed an update. Now 28, Emma is a slightly longer haired girl on a diet. 20lb lighter (and down from a UK 26 to a 22) than when she started, she’s given up Coca Cola and Chocolate completely and as of this writing is one day short of 11 weeks without either.  She’s really cut down on the buying of yarn and hasn’t really been doing much knitting lately. The first is good, the second not so much.  Recently she discovered book reviewing for various websites online and is really…

    >Site problems

    >There is a chance this website is going to disappear in the next few days. My web host are being a bit shit about renewing it. I’ve paid the renewal (which they agree I have) but keep getting reminders to pay. Have already had one support ticket in about this (supposedly resolved) but just got another reminder to pay. Along with the “your site could go offline” warning in it. ARGH All content copyright Emma Crees, 2006 – 2012 unless otherwise stated http://writerinawheelchair.blogspot.com

    >Random Bullet Points of Life

    >Item: On Monday it appeared that one of the things I’ve been wanting to do since I heard about it was in fact going to have to be off of the cards for me because of CP. Item: Yesterday there were two things that were CP crap and using lots of my disability fighting ness and all a bit much.  Particularly because of the guilt trips involved.  And the sighing. Item: people involved in assisting people with disabilities should not be allowed to sigh whilst doing so.  The “Okay I’ll do that” …. *Sigh* thing is discouraging. Item: Yesterday and Monday’s Items added together make me fed up and down.…
