I Am Not Satisfied with the Lack of Suggestions (repost)

R.O.E. Need To Know

Time is running out!!!


Yo, Yo, Yo…

Quick Question. I know that I will donate a set percentage of my sales to a charity every month. Then I got to thinking that it would be better for me to reach out to ya’ll and ya’ll could give me your preference and help spread the word. There may be smaller, more personal to you charities that you would love to see a monthly donation go to and I would love to do so!!!

Here’s what needs to go down

The charity must benefit the mental health community.

The organizer of the charity cannot make any money off of the charity for personal gain or for employment (they cannot receive a check from the charity funds).

The charity can provide funding, assistance, therapy, education, or entertainment for those with mental illness, ie group gatherings/movie meetups, no matter the foundation reason, if the mental health community is involved in a positive manner, I will consider the charity.


Pretty simple qualifications if you ask me.

So here’s whatcha do next….

Share!! Share this post on the platforms you interact on so hopefully someone you know can mention a charity close to their heart.

Next, drop your favorite charity in the comments and tell why you choose them with a brief description of their mission.

If you share on platforms outside of WordPress, make sure to have a link to this post or my website so I can receive their suggestions. This is not a ploy to gain more followers. I am 100% please with the amount of followers I have and I wouldn’t be upset if I never gained another. What this is, however, is a way to share the love among the community I was welcomed into just for being myself.

I am also thinking about speaking with whomever, within the charity, about displaying a link on my site where donations can be accepted anytime.

I haven’t yet determined the percentage but I will share that in theGarden, a bi-monthly newsletter, once I have made the decision. I will also be sharing some exciting news very soon so if you do not want to miss out, subscribe 🙂 (now that…that’s a shameless ploy to get you to subscribe – teehee)

How will I decide?

After narrowing it down by process of elimination, if a charity does not meet the qualifications, (I will do my research) then the remainder will be tossed into a hat and I will let my daughter draw the winner!!

I can’t wait to read everyone’s suggestion. In fact, the first donation will be made in your name! How about that? I will set a date to draw. Let’s say March 20th, the first day of spring. Sound good? I will donate to the winning charity for one year, each month, 12 donations. But I have to research the ones suggested, which will take some time depending on the number of suggestions… so I will not accept comments after 12:00 midnight on March 17th, St.Patrick’s day (central U.S. time).

I will contact the commenter who entered winning charity when the first donation is made.

Has Yours Arrived?

Exciting Stuff!!

While it is plenty to support others verbally, it is also validating to support the advancement efforts of our favorite bloggers… Especially if it only cost $7.00 to do so!!

Taking Care of Me!

I have decided to take care of me. It is something new to me and I will start by taking a well-needed break from blogging.


Revenge of Eve

I need to rejuvenate my mind, body, and soul. By default, I am a workaholic and my needs are often put on the back burner. I have come to learn the importance of self-care also being taught crisis doesn’t have to be the reason for me to do so….

Revenge of Eve

I always say that it is from our pain we learn lessons and for the first time in my life, I am going to stop before it reaches the point of pain. It has nothing directly to do with blogging. It is all me and the way I push and push until I break. I am tired of breaking. So…

It is. I will be available for contact but as far as producing content worthy of reading, I will be out of commission.

Operations:

As you may be aware, blogging can cost money. Dedicating myself to operating a blog has increased my life’s value. At least I believe so. I now spend my free time researching and creating instead of floating around. If you like what I bring to you, you can support my efforts in a variety of ways.

Revenge of Eve

Donate

You can donate $5.00 by using the donation button. This button has been set for a donation in a five dollar increment. Easy peasy. It is secured through PayPal.

Supplies

Another way of donating would be through purchasing craft supplies or gift cards with a balance of your choice. You can contact me and I will give you my address. I accept any vintage papers, lace, glitter, cardboard material, cardstock, patterned paper, glue, double-sided tape, watercolor paint, acrylic paint, vintage books… The list is pretty limitless.

I have had a blogger donate using her Amazon credit and because she lives in Canada and I in the United States, doing it this way was genius.

Support-Revenge of Eve

Handmade Purchases

I offer handmade memory keeping journals, inserts for traveler’s notebooks (any size) with vintage paper, tiny bottles of glitter or with a scroll (to hang from a necklace or a charm bracelet), flip books, server books (coming soon), postcards with collaging, and collaged pieces. Each varies in price.

Support Revenge of Eve

Old Keys

Any keys that you may not know the lock that it goes too, ship ’em my way. I am wanting to use them as a kind of trademark to ship with order packages. Old, chipped, ugly, skeleton keys, any key you have and no longer use, I would appreciate them tremendously.

Contact me via chat and I will give you my shipping address. I will pay postage if need be.

Presenting-An Introduction-Revenge of Eve

An Introduction

R.O.E. Need To Know

Heyyy Youuu Guys!!

Welcome back to the second edition of An Introduction. As categories are added to Revenge of Eve, I like to take the time to detail them although most of them are self-explanatory.

If you are new to these parts, welcome.

You have stumbled upon An Unconventional Lifestyle blog where we discuss a variety of topics. The first edition of An Introduction listed six categories. My initial goal was to have only four total… I have since extended it to max, 10. Definitely no more than that, preferably 8 but ya know, 10 is a possibility.

Let’s catch up on the newest categories/subjects that will be discussed here on R.O.E.

Life & Relationships

These post will discuss my many curiosities about life and… ahem, relationships. I will also share my personal life in this category. Oh, wait. I do that in every post. Haha.

Perhaps these post will be more intimate. I’ve not ever been married, I have one child and a relatively small family.

My fam will be referred to as:

Ma– my mother

The Others– brother and sister

SIL-sister in law

Kid– my daughter

and The Littles– my niece and nephew.

We spend a lot of time together but as with all families, we have our fair share of disagreements.

Ma & Me

Ma & Me will be a category that describes life as an adult, living with mental illness and… You guessed it, with my Ma.

Life as an adult child isn’t for the faint of heart. It is truly a struggle because you are aware that you are an adult yet you are not only treated as a child, your emotions are not regulated. Its fun (meh) but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I have a feeling a lot of funny, entertaining, and real will come from this category. We need something to lighten things up around here (it’s ok to agree), I apologize.

What’s even better, my Ma doesn’t read my blog (I am bitter about it but, whatever) and so I can talk shit about her…!! Bahahahahaha. Keyword, I. There are a lot of things that make living with your parent, as an adult, challenging.

Stay tuned.

Letter143

I have always wanted to have a dialogue type series here on R.O.E. but never really knew how I wanted to present it. Well, here it is… Letter143. These are letters to myself, family and friends in real time. I will write what comes to mind, when it comes to mind and publish them immediately.

I created a page that can be found as a drop down from the home directory button, basically explaining what Letter143 is. I would like each post to be found there so if you know how to do that, HELP. 🙂 Would I set it as a parent page and then each post that is a Letter143 set as a what? These post will be simply be titled the date in which it were written. I will consider this aspect of my blog as my online diary, of sorts.


Oh yeah…

Posting hasn’t been at the forefront of my mind as of late. I’m not burned out or remotely considering quitting, I have shifted my energy toward creating. My projects are built upon and require things to be decorated before assembly and again as a whole piece.

I have quite a few things ready to sell, I just haven’t found made the time to take photos. Previously I created a page that displayed a few items but I realized I wasn’t impressed with how the photos turned out. So… I deleted the page and made the decision to wait until I could make them visually appealing (graphically) before posting them again.

I have props. I have the products. So all we are waiting on is me.

Imagine that.


If you are not subscribed to receive my newsletter, JUST DO IT already! 🙂

P.S. I have lots of ideas floating around in this head of mine. They are only ideas at the moment but as, if, or when something becomes of them, subscribers are the first to know. Don’t be left out and keep up with the happenings here on R.O.E. No spamming… No sales gimmicks. Just little insiders… You know you wanna!! Where do you do so? 5 seconds after you are on this site, a slider pops out from the right side of your screen. To receive the newsletter, you enter your email address in the box provided. Easy peasy.


Sneaky and Thoughtful-Revenge of Eve

Sneaky…and Thoughtful

R.O.E. Need To Know

Ok…. which one of you nominated me for a bloggers bash award??

Revenge of Eve

I woke this morning to an email that held this gem (above)!! I have been nominated for Best Personal Development Blog and it has to be one of you who did it.

First off I would like to say that I am in shock. After that wears off I think I will find my magnifier and begin looking for clues to find out who exactly nominated me. That is unless they confess.

I am really without words at the moment and awestruck that someone would consider Revenge of Eve. What an honor! I mean … we are a hot mess around here.!! Life has thrown me some curveballs and while I do my best to catch them before smashing me in my face, I hardly thought I was doing good at it. But someone seems to think I am doing ok and can I tell you what a confidence booster that is?!

This community of bloggers amazes me each day. The level of support and encouragement has been what keeps me going on the days I want to shut it down. I am given advice from those who truly care about mine and my daughters well-being. I have a circle of friends now that I can rely on if I am in need and even if I just want something.. they are there. I am not sure what I have done to be so gifted with love from my fellow bloggers but it is an amazing feeling I tell ya!!

Of course now all I can think of are ways to improve the actions I am taking in my personal development in order to be of better service for y’all. But I think I will sit and let this feeling marinate. To whomever did this, gosh, you are so kind and thoughful and sneaky!! You made my day and quite possibly my week. I feel like I have already won!! Thank you for thinking of me and for taking the time out of your day to nominate R.O.E. This act makes me feel seen and heard and isn’t that all we really want?

Now I know what it feels like to be nominated for a Grammy!!! lmao… Just kidd’n 😉

Lots of Love,

2019 Challenge: The Remix

R.O.E. Need To Know

Hey, Rockstars!

S.Y.K.- Revenge of Eve

Last week I announced my dislike for the 52-week lists challenge. I have thought about it and have decided to continue,

But. 

I will be adding my unique style

These questions are not to achieve happiness rather bring a realness to our blogs.


For those of you who have followed R.O.E. for a while, this may seem a bit familiar. That’s because it is. Do you remember G2K?? (Get 2 Know)? Well, I decided to somewhat combine the two.

Introducing…


So You Know (S.Y.K.)

So You Know
So You Know

The Deets

  • A number of questions will be asked. At least 1, no more than 5.
  • Questions will range in subject from cherries to prostitution.
  • Participation will consist of you creating a post on your website, listing the questions and responding.
  • Pingback to any SYK post

My intentions are to ask questions that provoke thought, create a scenario, ask opinions on controversial topics (not necessarily headlines), make you laugh, teach you about yourself, and/or entertain you and your readers, as well as, give a little insight into who is behind the blog.

Any participation is greatly appreciated.

If you come up with a question, let’s chat! Send it on over and I’ll fit it in (and credit you).


S.Y.K.-Revenge of Eve
Reeeemixxx!

S.Y.K

We are going to start off with a pow!! The first edition of S.Y.K. is going to make you think and give your followers insight. Ready??? Oh, yea. We are starting today 🙂

  • What is the soul?
  • What is religion?
  • What is spirituality?
  • What purpose do humans serve in the scheme of things?

A Few things to Keep in Mind

  • There are no right or wrong answers… Your answers = Your opinion = Your life
  • Answer a few or one, whatever you are comfortable with
  • Pingback to any S.Y.K. post
  • Use the hashtag #SYK to tag your post
  • Be real.  If you feel a certain type of way, say it.  You were asked your opinion 😉 (double dog dare)

That’s all folks!! Just a friendly game of questions. I can’t wait to read your answers.

Have any questions for me?? Ask away… Let’s chat!! In the comments or privately, your choice. Have a wonderful Monday, y’all!

Peace out homies 😉
