Q Is For Quiet

My hubby calls the the noise police. I like my quiet time that much.
I hate when the tv is too loud, or sirens and car alarms are going crazy.
I prefer the calm quiet sounds of nothingness.

Even Bjork likes it quiet. Enough so, she sang a song:

So what do you prefer? Quiet calm or Noisy nature?

  1. I am SO SO SO with you. I love quiet. I find it odd that quiet unnerves some people. Great song choice too.

  2. Hi Freda,
    I like peace and quiet myself. But that's a little hard to find now a days. Since the twins were born. Have a great day!

  3. Hey Freda! It depends on what mood I am in or if I have a headache. LOl

    If I am writing, I don't mind background noise, as long as it is kept a reasonable volume that does not pull me out of what I am doing.

    I work in the City which is loud all the time. There are the rare moments, say on a Monday night where all is quiet.

    When I come home, my neighborhood is so quiet and peaceful that I immediately relax.

    So for me I think I have to factor in mood and atmosphere.

  4. I don't mind noise, except when it's too loud. I find myself turning down the TV or radio just a couple notches fairly often.

  5. I love Summers background noise in the country or a relaxing rest with the background noise of the ocean.
    I have a hard time with complete quiet.Great post for 'Q'.
    We do get some weird and quirky Spring weather in the Atlantic Provinces.

  6. I like it quiet--but not too quiet. :) Soft instrumental music playing in the background might help me when i'm writing a scene, but often i keep it quiet when i'm editing.

  7. It all depends on my mood and what the noise is. I don't like the TV playing but music in the background is fine. When I'm working outside I'm always wearing headphones listening to music.

  8. Cool video. It depends on my mood and the circumstance. Over all I prefer calm quiet, but there are good times for noisiness as well.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.

Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.

Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.

The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.

Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.
