In case you are new here or maybe you need a refresher on how things work here at Keep On Winking;
What is this blog about?
Have you seen my About Me page yet?
Or the what the logo represents?
But what does it all mean?
To figure out what this blog is really about or to start reading posts from that category, click the links in highlighted orange. 😉
These posts are about handling real life. We learn through the world and who we are by interacting with it. These are essentially the lessons I am learning.
Sometimes I talk about handling depression, adhd, dyslexia, parenting wins and flops, you know… basic life skills. I use these style of posts to talk about what drives me up the wall and how I learn to handle them.
Old S.H.I.T. posts can be found here.
I can’t be the only person that’s learning to handle life! Or am I? This is your invitation to share your life lessons!
This is where I focus on capturing the things that makes me happy!
Sometimes it’s about my life and sometimes it’s my efforts to capture a moment while wandering.
From time to time I like to share the world from a different perspective… through the lens of another wanderer!
See Where We Wander with these posts! Lots of pictures to inspire you to take adventures of your own. Everything ranging from day trips on a whim to a planned adventure.
I include travel tips if I discover that an area has surprised me with more than I imagined. I also like to link travel guides and other bloggers who have a different perspective of the same trip!
Hmmm… What is the deal with the Happy Winkie or a Wandering Winkie hashtags floating around?
You know those winking emojis? 😉 That’s a happy wink. Winkie is a nickname I earned and later used as my life’s motto. Now I use it to describe people making the world a better place, one wink at a time. Unfortunately using it as a hashtag attracted the wrong kind of people to my social media accounts! Um… yeah… Go ahead and laugh at my expense.
I’m still looking for something that I can use instead. Until then I stick with #KeepOnWinking Read more at Happy Winkie.
I know my friends are busy and so am I. When I’m not blogging, I’m either spending time with my family, writing, drawing, traveling… and in the pursuit of managing life a great deal that I planned to blog about, doesn’t post within a reasonable time. Weekly *Winks* is my way of taking a mental health breather. I use these wrap-up style posts to catch us all up on our life between posts and to share the winks that inspire me or simply help me find a moment of joy.
Do I have Giveaways?
Yes! Yes! Yes!
I like to give stuff away! 99% of all the things I have given through this have been donated or purchased by me. That’s right, if I really liked the product or I wanted to support a friend, I would pay for it. Give it away for free. Then pay to ship it. How many people do you know are willing to put their money where their mouth is?
The truth is I have a collection of travel trinkets put aside for giveaways! I’m not sure how I want to do it or when I want to do it! Which means they come up quick with very little warning. The best thing to do is Subscribe & Follow for updates.
