In Turbulent Times Turn To Peace

In Turbulent Times Turn To Peace | Memee's Musings

I don’t really have any more to say than what is conveyed by my title and chosen quote. Between the two, everything that needs to be said, is being said.

Peace out!

If you’d like to play Words Crush Wednesday along with me here are the details:

Cut/paste and follow these 3 simple rules:

(1) Always pingback to the site you discovered #wcw on with every Words Crush Wednesday post. In this case, that’s me: memeesmusings.com!

(2) In your post, use the badge they’ve created just for you – In this case, you’d use the Panda badge (size doesn’t matter), just grab it below.

(3) Tag your post #wcw so the Words Crush Wednesday community players can find you.

(4) Optional: When you are ready, create your own badge for those you inspire to play Words Crush Wednesday. If you do not create your own badge then your inspirees MUST use the badge from the blogger who inspired you — it’s on your post — so be sure to make it easy for them to find. (P.S. I create all of my graphics on Canva.)

If you wanna play #wcw with me, here's your badge!
If you wanna play #wcw with me, grab that panda badge on the left!

American Ninja Squirrel

Mission Impossible? Not for this squirrel!

I saw this years ago, but when it was sent to me via Facebook Messenger. Today I decided I had to share it with you, my new friends and minions, and I figured I’d add a few more as well.

I want to emphasize that this is what comes from perseverance, determination and hard work… it’s called success!

You might think that squirrel must be smarter than all the other dumb squirrels. And he was at least among his family grouping over there at the Hageman’s. But what of this squirrel:

or these squirrels:

or even this squirrel:

This is not the first time that squirrels have found their way onto Memee’s Musings. Please do enjoy the calling card left by Beatriz last year in which she tried to negotiate with the squirrels stealing fruit from her trees: Take Me To Your Leader

I’m not sure you can negotiate with a squirrel, but individually we can certainly strive to be as tenacious as they are, especially when it comes to things we truly desire!

How to Play #WCW

If you’d like to play along in Words Crush Wednesday (#wcw) just cut/paste and follow these simple rules:

(1) Always pingback to the site you discovered #wcw on with every Words Crush Wednesday post. In this case, that’s me: memeesmusings.com!

(2) In your post, use the badge they’ve created just for you – In this case, you’d use the Panda badge (size doesn’t matter)

(3) Tag your post #wcw so other players can find you

(4) Optional: When you are ready, create your own badge for those you inspire to play Words Crush Wednesday. If you do not create your own badge then your inspirees MUST use the badge from the blogger who inspired you, so be sure to make it easy for them to find.

That’s pretty easy.

So, for example, my first two #wcw posts I had not yet created a badge to pass along to my teammates so those posts have the #wcw badge that was created by Lisa who I discovered the game through. When I had decided I liked the Words Crush Wednesday posts I committed to making a badge to pass along to all of you. I used Canva.com to do it. If you haven’t discovered Canva yet, it’s a great tool, you’ll use it a lot.

Choose a quote. Write your post. Cut & Paste the rules listed above into your post (but be sure to change the line “In this case that’s me, Memee’s Musings” to represent you and your website. Insert the #WCW badge and create a pingback to the referrer as a footnote to your post. I keep the rules and footnote together so it’s one simple cut and paste each week. The badge changes sizes and moves around my post depending on how things look.

Want to see some examples? Here’s some quotes:

Dr. Seuss
John Wayne
C.S. Lewis

Did you see how my pingback is tiny and doesn’t distract yet adheres to the rules? The cool thing is when you use the pingback I can read your post and maybe even feature it on a Sunday Calling Card. And the badge, well, let’s be honest: it’s a cute, fun way to advertise your blog on someone else’s post. So I really encourage you to create a #wcw badge with your blog name on it to use after your first #wcw so that your readers will spread you around like butter! 🙂
