Happy Valentines’ Day

I really don’t have anything new today, other than I updated my post from yesterday since I forgot to add a link to my actual page and I’m still working out a few things to make this site look a little better.

I spent the day showering my youngest daughter with Valentines’ treats and fun. I got her all sorts of gifts, we made pancakes with hearts all over them, and watched a movie she’s been wanting to see for a while. My oldest is out of the house, but we exchanged our love via text. My fiance doesn’t buy into all the holiday consumer crap, he says. Although, he still ordered gifts for us that will arrive late. That’s his work around to say it’s not for the holiday lol.

Today really got away from me, but it was fun and I still plan to list some more ebay items. I have a lot of coins and some random books to add. I will add them here as well.

If anyone is reading this, let me know. I appreciate the feedback and also the knowledge that I’m not talking to myself (more than I already do).

Thank you!

Who Would Read My Blog?

According to my next task, I’m supposed to determine the kind of person who would read my blog and what I would like to say to them. This is intended to help focus my thoughts and goals towards that specific person.

I know the assignments are cheesy, but my mind is all over the place. This helps me get used to blogging more and gives me something to chat about.

Honestly, I don’t know who would actually read my blog. I have no preference, as long as they bring no issues and enjoy their visit. My site has lived through about 10 years of changes. I could see all sorts of people reading it at one point or another, while I could also see none at all. That’s part of why I have gone back and forth with posting. While I’ve been pretty eclectic, I just don’t know that what I have to say is interesting enough to continue reading. Originally, this site was all about promoting others. Now, it’s more about what I would like share on my time. Content has shifted, but the idea of helping others is still there.

To those that are reading my blog, I’d definitely like to say Thank You and I appreciate it immensely. Please feel free contribute by liking posts and commenting.

Who Is LadySkullshine?

Since I have an About Me section, I didn’t intend to write this post. However, I signed up to learn more about blogging and my first task was to do this. So, who am I and why am I here?

For those who have no idea who I am, I’m LadySkullshine.

I suppose a good way to start is to tell you to google my alt name and you’ll find a whole lot of my work from over the years. I feel like that’s actually pretty cool for me to be able to say. The name originated around 2010 and came out of brainstorming with a few others. At the time, it was perfect for what I was doing. I had been recently unemployed, which created an opportunity to learn a few things and volunteer my time helping out local businesses, the local metal community, and a few things outside of that. I did a ton of promoting and photography. That was my original primary focus. From there, I began to take on a bit much but still persisted. I had managed a couple bands, did some modelling, a ton more photography, ticket and merchandise sales, announcing at music awards, made shirts and hoodies in my home once, and a few more things that had gone on for quite a few years.

It started to die down slightly when I got back to working but I insisted on continuing to help out wherever I could. When my time with family was compromised, I had to end most of it. My babygirls are my life and they always come 1st. The last thing I really did was star in a my friend’s horror movie with my oldest daughter a few years ago. You can actually find us on IMDb, which is also pretty cool.

Over these long years, my site has been restructured several times as far as content. In an effort to hang on to the history of my site and of course to showcase my past work, I have saved some of the old LadySkullshine in a separate archival section. The rest of my site has shifted focus on awareness of several disabilities that affect my life in one way or another, saving money any way possible, Numismatics, along with anything else I decide to add along the way.

Now that I have gone through the process of writing this, I’m remembering things and realize there is a lot more to my history that is actually very interesting. I may continue this post with more details at a later time.

Stay Tuned For More LadySkullshine!

Thank you!

Music Mix 🎶

This mix is very much eclectic, so don’t be shocked when it goes from a current country song, into an old hair metal band from back in my day lol.

Update: I’m not really on Spotify these days due to subscription pricing & massive ads. Pandora is always my go-to favorite.

10/6/14 Mercury Retrograde

Ever since I was made aware of this planetary illusion that causes major universal havoc several times a year, I follow it as much as possible.  There is a copy of the Mercury Retrograde calendar on my kitchen wall underneath my kids’ school calendar however you will rarely, if ever, hear me discussing it outside of my home.  It seems taboo, yet it affects everyone whether they like to admit it or not.  When I get brave & mention it to someone, I’m either ignored, looked at like a crazy person or sometimes they do actually ask me what MR is. Since I’m not very good at explaining things & I prefer not to relay this information incorrectly,  I have listed below just a few articles for reference.

Some changes are on the horizon …

I’m completely reworking my site. Not sure how everyone will feel about it, but I’m thinking a few things.  With respect to all those who follow me, (I’m not sure how many of those I actually have) I don’t feel that I’m benefiting as many as I’d like to.  So then I wonder what’s the point.  So a new format is needed.  Since I don’t have very much spare time to work with, I will make it simple but with more interaction.   Currently, anything I post on my LadySkullshine Entertainment page on facebook will automatically upload to my site.   I’m looking for ways to expand & network further in a seamless manner.

I also think that this is my own site that I do by myself & can do whatever I want.  That being said, you will see more of what I want to be on my site.  Not, what I think will please everyone else.  So you may see more happy sparkley things & less adult rated items.  I hope this doesn’t annoy too many, but hey it is what it is right?  Everyone just needs to realize that I do this for fun & to help others voluntarily in my very limited spare time since I’m quite busy with my career & family, etc.  There are a few exceptions when I do some paid projects or trade offs, etc.

I hope to start changing some things today & to get working on some family pics on my day off.

 

Have a super great day!  🙂
