So I was thinking about the 2015 goals for Cathy the Writer, and honestly, they’re the same goals every year: write, read, market, stay on top of business. And I pretty much follow those goals every day. (Well, maybe not Sunday–a writer girl’s got to have one day off, right?)
So then I remembered that I’d written a post over at The Muffin on this very topic. I called the post, “Just for Today, For the Writer.” And I figured I’d just print that out and slap it on the wall of my office with all the other stuff I like to keep foremost in my wee little brain. But it’s a lot of words, y’all.
So I abbreviated the post to one page. But since I sit at my laptop with my reading glasses on when I’m writing, the print of anything up on my wall has to be somewhat large so that I can read it. Which even the abbreviated post was not.
What to do? What to do? I know, says I, I’ll put it on my blog so I can click on it and read it whenever I need to get going on goals! (Plus, I can share it with the writer world.) All I need, says I, is to slap the title on an image.
Which is the kinda long story that gets you–at last!– to the site I used to put text on an image (for free!) and save the image to use on my blog. I used Quozio; I got the quick scoop from this post from Raven. I tried a few of the sites mentioned, and managed to waste all kinds of time, until I eventually ended up with the cool image, now a widget, over there to your right.
Gosh, I love Fun Fridays.
An oldie but a goodie, Cath — the Muffin article. That is definitely one to print out and post on my bulletin board. The Quozio is cool, too. I bookmarked that along with the one I already use, Quotescover.com, also free. I like the idea of having two to go to, for variety.
I’ll check out your go-to site, too, Lisa. I’m not sure I’m actually “quote” worthy, but it’s fun to play around with text on images (and I can always quote actual famous people). 🙂
I liked your post–Just for today–I can!
Thanks, Tina! It’s not really original but it DOES work! 🙂
Do you think it’s easy enough for a techno-dummy like me to use? It DOES sound like a fun site to use…
Well, Sioux, if I say, “Yes,” then it sounds as if I’m agreeing, that you ARE a techno dummy (which I know you aren’t). 🙂 So I will just say that the site is very user-friendly. (And I expect to see a Sioux-ism on your blog, any day now.)
