Inspiration on a Rainy Day

I may be a few hours late, but I wanted to take a few minutes and write. I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed the rain. There is something magical about the rain. Though it can be a pain, there can be something wonderful about it as well.

Also, if you haven't gotten a chance to check out Artprize, it is quite inspiring. Some of the artwork you see is breath-taking. And some of the artwork is interesting. :) But overall, it is very worthwhile to check out the designs, support our local artists, and enjoy Grand Rapids.

Lastly, inspiration is a wonderful thing. You never know what will inspire you, when you will be inspired, or how you will be inspired. Always keep your eyes open and your mind available to all sorts of possibilities. I'm learning, anything is possible.

Happy Day! Til next time.

(P.S. how do you post pictures on this site? I've wanted to post pictures several times and I can NEVER figure out how do to do. Also, I haven't been able to figure out how to write, save the writing, and have it post automatically on a certain day and time. Any tips?)

For pictures, look at the little toolbar and find an icon that looks a bit like a landscape photo (the top looks blue), click on that (it's label is "Insert Image") and you'll be prompted to upload your picture(s).

If you're using the newer blogger interface, look to the right of your post and you'll see "Schedule", click on that and you can set a date and time for you post.

If that's only as clear as mud, let me know and I'll make up a little cheat sheet with pictures of the screens.

Nice post! I can't wait to visit ArtPrize.

J.C. covered the picture uploading. To pre-post your blog, do everything like you normally would, but instead of hitting "Publish Post" click on "Post Options" (in small blue letters just above the orange button). That will open up another box that will ask you what day and what time you want your post to appear. THEN click "Publish post" and you'll get a message confirming when your post is scheduled.

If that's as clear as mud, J.C. will make up a cheat sheet with pictures.
