Am I Afraid?

For the past six months, I have had an illness—blessedly not contagious—called writer’s block. But just now, as I so begrudgingly drug my butt into the prophetic Writer’s Seat, I realized something.

I don’t have writer’s block.

I am afraid.

Me And My Words

Me and my words Rebekah Koontz Rebecca Coonts blogger

There was this boy I knew once.

Well, knew was an understatement. For lack of better words, I may even say I had fallen for him.

On the morning of Halloween, he disclosed that he didn’t reciprocate my googoo-eyes. His reason being? That my being a writer was a turn-off.

Irony amuses me, which is why I chose to write about him now. *

But this post isn’t about crushes past. **

I’m a Jokeaholic

I'm a Jokeaholic humor post Rebekah Koontz

“Hi, my name’s Rebekah Koontz, and I’m a Jokaholic.”

“Hi Rebekah…”

“I don’t know how this came about—my…habit. I just can’t help it. But I guess that’s what they all say.” I look around the room. “We all say.”

The group stares at their shoes and nods.

Thoughts Bloggers Have

Thoughts Bloggers Have. Humor

Bloggers are a special kind of people. We speak through our fingers. We create pictures with words. We’re like YouTubers, with a keyboard.

We don’t know when to quit with the metaphors and similes…

The idea for this post hit me—as most posts tend to do—as I was staring at a roll of toilet paper. I wondered how bad, on a scale of 1-10, my latest post really was and realized these are thoughts all bloggers must have after, during, and before writing a blog post for all the internet to see.

Out poured this list.

Liebster Award Part 2

Liebster

I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely bloggers: Beckie from Spotlight and Dani from Crystal Sparkly Dreams.

Turns out, I’ve already accepted this award, almost exactly one year ago.

But I’m not one to let a tiny hiccup like that stop me.

5 Tips For Newbie Bloggers

5 Tips for newbie bloggers

When I look back at my years as a blogger, I’m filled with a sad cliché.

If I knew then what I know now. . .

It’s horrible. I hate participating in clichés. I try very hard to be a unique, interesting individual.

If you are just starting as a blogger, I want to share some invaluable tips and explanations that would’ve helped me when I was a baby blogger. Let’s dive right in, starting with twitter.

Need A Blog Critique?

Need a blog critique? Critique for critique

I went to Twitter and proposed a blog critique in exchange for a blog critique. I asked if anyone was interested. A few responded.

Honestly, I had such a good time getting to know people and checking out new blogs that I want to do it again. But this time it’s more official than a Tweet. It’s a blog post. Way more serious.

Oooh Rebekah’s getting serious. . .

Technical Issues And Withrawals

Friends, I have solemn news.

My. Macbook. *turns face away and sobs*

Wednesday, the trackpad decided to play peek-a-boo. The kind of I’m working now. PSYCHE! Nope. Still not working. Maybe… ha, tricked you again kind of peek-a-boo. And yesterday, my keyboard adopted the same disobedient behavior.

Ugh, teenagers. .  .

After doing the typical WebMD Googling for Macbooks, trying to ignorantly fix the problem myself as we all try to do (don’t lie), I ended on the phone with a garbled man from Apple who had me poking keys and sitting in awkward silence. We ended the call with an appointment that day at the Apple Store.

I packed up my baby, and we headed out.
