  1. The weather the past week has been amazing. Cool in the mornings and late afternoon and evening. More neighbors are outside so everyone must be feeling more energized. Even Nola can tell a difference when we take walks. I hope this isn’t a tease.
  2. Tennis is over, which is a good thing. Sweet Shark and I started watching The Serpent Queen, Monarch (not sure about this one; why are TV shows based in Texas so fake? We do not talk liiike thaaat!), and Becoming Elizabeth. I’ll take history shows anytime.
  3. I registered for a new blog conference taking place in Waco in October called The Achieve Conference. Since it’s just an 1 1/2 drive from Dallas, has many new speakers, and I get to see many of my blogging friends, it was hard to resist.
  4. I finally did something I’ve been wanting to do for months: I signed up for RankIQ. RankIQ is a “AI-powered SEO toolset built for just for bloggers. It also has a hand-picked library of the lowest competition high-traffic keywords for every blog niche (over 200 niches and counting). The keyword research is done by one of the top keyword research experts in the world, Brandon Gaille.” So many blogging friends have recommended it. I listened to the tutorial and started playing around with it. I can’t wait to really deep-dive into it this weekend. If you use RankIQ, I’d love to know what you think about it.
  5. This week on the blog was about fun fall DIY projects for tables and decor: How to Make Decorative Fall Plates and How to Decorate Glass Vases with Twine.
