Adding a Little More to My Blogging Plate – Some News

Photo by Eneida Nieves on Pexels.com *SQUERSH!* Don’t mind me – just trying to prop my eyelids open for a minute, so I can swoop in to say hello and share a little news.

Barbara Walters Made Me Write This Blog Post.

Here's the situation: Barbara Walters recently swooped upon me in the form of a dream. At least, I hope it was a dream, because otherwise I have some serious home security issues to look into. At first, I was temporarily blinded by the sudden spotlight, and I thought maybe a guardian angel had (finally) come to call. But, when I heard the tell-tale lisping I… Continue reading Barbara Walters Made Me Write This Blog Post.

Blogging Paranoia…(It’s All About Me!)

Since I'm rapidly approaching my one year blogging anniversary (and am in the midst of a busy week), I thought I would share one of my older posts. Happy Blogging!   Before I started Amanda's Wrinkled Pages, I had never intentionally read or sought out another blog.  Borrowing from that timeless classic of artistic expression, Pretty Woman, I'll say, "Close… Continue reading Blogging Paranoia…(It’s All About Me!)
