“If you can dream it, you can do it.” Walt Disney
I’ve been following the Blogging 201 course on WordPress and Monday’s assignment struck a chord with me: Today’s assignment: create a recurring blogging event on your site, and/or make plans to attend a blogging conference. I’ve been thinking of ways to strengthen the Motivational theme of this blog and the assignment gave me courage to take a leap of faith and add a weekly event to my blog. Since this blog is called Mirth and Motivation, I thought it would be a good idea to start the week with a motivational quote or two. So welcome to Motivation Mondays! I invite you to jump in and add your Motivation Mondays post and I’d do a round-up of them for us and others to enjoy.
