RIP Computer

I apologize for not having any new posts or reviews up recently. My computer took its last breath about three weeks ago. Blogging isn’t very easy on a cell phone. I will start posting again as soon as I can. Seriously hoping to chat soon. Kisses!

How I Chose My Blogger Name

How DId I Choose My Blogger Name?

For those of you who know me, you are probably wondering where the name Kat came from. Well, this is a long story made short…. I hope.

The Story

My name is Kelly Kathleen so I often go by KellyKat on social media and game sites. I decided on my gaming sites I didn’t want to use my real name. It just messes with the effect of playing as a make-believe character and I am all about acting the role. I chose KittyKat. All of my gaming friends started referring to me as Kat and the name stuck.

For the last couple of years I have gotten so used to being called Kat, Kitten or Kitty that I prefer it to my given name. LOL! Not to mention that my beautiful niece calls me Auntie Kiki (which I personally feel is a child’s version of kitty). How could I not go with a name I have become so fond of?

Chat with Kat

I guess that story was very short. I hope this has given you insight into my blogger name choice.  Do you have a unique blog or social media name? Leave me a comment below. How did your domain make the final cut? Thank you all for helping me get this ball rolling. We’ll chat soon. Kisses!

Fibromyalgia Strikes

Maybe I did too much on my “better days”, the 105 degree weather that sprung up this week, both, or maybe I struck the Fibro jackpot but no matter the cause I have been hit hard by the Fibro freight train. Ugh!! For the last two days I have literally been bed ridden. I have to admit that it really sucks.

How does someone deal with being stuck in bed and unable to stay awake or move when there is so many tasks screaming at you? Honestly, I don’t know. I have a house that is getting messier by the minute, a family to feed, and a blog that I am desperate to get rolling. Two days in a row my 14-year-old kitten had to call and wake me because I was not at the school to pick him up. The poor guy was waiting in this miserable heat for mom to arrive. My family tries to be patient with me keeping in mind that this is something that is out of my hands but must be quite hard. It is for me.

Great Resourse for WordPress

I found this wonderful YouTube video by James Stafford on setting up a WordPress blog and some essential features to maximize it’s effectiveness. You don’t want to miss this. If you are thinking about starting a blog, a blogger newbie, or even a seasoned blogger/business owner, I am sure you will find some useful nuggets of wisdom in this video. I even suggest that you watch it twice.

I am in the blogger newbie category and this video has helped me understand so much about WordPress and some important tools that are available to help me get the most from my blog. It’s so nice to have someone hold your hand through the process instead of fumbling in the dark. I plan on watching more of James Staffords videos.

I highly recommend that you check it out and let me know what you think in the comments below. Did you find it useful? Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog for more updates like this. Hope to chat soon kittens. KIsses!
