      If ever there was a show to incite anger and frustration this particular season of the Bachelor is it.  There were people who absolutely adored Jason Mesnick when this season started just because of the way he was treated when he was on the Bachelorette a few seasons back when he was rejected by Deanna.  He came into the season with alot of goodwill on the part of the viewers I thought.  He has blown it big time with tonights episode.

      The season finale had him picking Melissa…ahhh…happy ending…but then wait…no…he changed his MIND people after hurting Molly from Michigan.  She told him when he let her go that he was making a mistake.  They all say that by the way…but Molly knew it deep within her soul after the night they spent together before the finale.  But, let her go –he did.  By the way…she left with dignity and grace…well, as much as is possible, in that situation.   (more…)

Well, this past week has been a lesson on nurturing my blog.  This past week was a week out of the ordinary and I was not able to nurture my blog in the way that I normally do.  I began to think on that thought.  A blog is a bit like a baby…it needs to be nurtured to grow and prosper.

How do you nurture a blog, you ask?  First things first, if you have a blog already you need to evaluate it’s well-being.  If you do not have a blog…begin one.  You need to think about what your blog is intended to accomplish.  Mine was initially set up to develop some discipline, commitment, and to help improve my writing.  As it evolved, I learned more…and therefore; I have discovered what I want and need.  Some of those things have changed with time; and now, I know that  my blog needs some adjustments.   That is ok, it is called growing pains; things that don’t grow become stagnant…they wither and die.  If your goals change for your blog, then you must make changes.  That knowledge requires some re-evaluation.  (more…)

     It was announced today that two of the professional dancers on Dancing With The Stars are now engaged.  This is a surprise to many as Karina Smirnoff was involved with former contestant entertainer Mario Lopez not so very long ago. 

      Karina is now engaged to be married to Maksim Chmerkovskiy.  They are both very talented.  They have been dating for most of the summer and are , at present, involved in the Dancing With The Stars tour.  They became engaged on New Year’s Eve. 

       The new season of Dancing With The Stars begins the second week of March.  This new aspect of their relationship should make for a very interesting season for viewers.  How will the competition between dancing teams affect their relationship….how will it affect their dancing?  In any case, we wish them well…may they live happily ever after.

       Extra, extra, read all about it…lookie here…you want traffic to your blog or website you say?  Do you update often?  Is your blog or website interesting to others?  Hey, then do i have a recommendation for you!  There is this new site that is so going to be the next online addiction; such as for those, who have found themselves addicted to twitter!  It is called Alpha Inventions.  It is a little complicated to explain therefore i am going to include a link to the blog that explains it…but trust me on this…it will increase your traffic like crazy.  It sounds like the inventor has bigger ideas for the site; but, it is a work in progress.  Today in just a short time…i had 166 readers sent to my blog because Alpa Inventions recommended my site here at www.writeasrain.wordpress.com. Hmmmm…does anyone else see possible potential here?  Crazy huh?  Try it out and see.

       Here is the blog about Alpha Inventions: http://alphainventions.com/  I am going to post to www.twitter.com and see if anyone there has discovered Alpha Inventions yet.  I think this is going to spread like wildfire to anyone who wants to create an immediate notification of anything/or subject/or idea that they want to spread the word about.  It has the potential to be a great PR tool.  This is a cool idea to read blog posts in real time as blog posts are posted to create an instant following.  Go Alpha!

      Dancing with the Stars finale is tonight.  I can’t wait to find out who is the winner of this season.  It is a highly contested win…because even though Brooke Burke is the expected winner because of her consistent performances…Lance Bass is the late bloomer; he really ramped up his skills in the last three weeks or so…then there is Warren Sapp…who is admitedly the least skilled dancer; however, Warren has the heart of the viewers.

        Brooke and her partner Dereck took perfect 10’s last night in one of their performances…but, as we all know…the viewers have the ultimate input when it comes to the outcome of the final scores.  It truly is anybody’s trophy tonight.  It could be a shocker as to who takes the top scores. 

         In any case, the show will be outstanding.  The entertainment value alone will be worth the watch.  Miley Cyrus will be performing tonight.  I totally expect the ratings for tonight’s show to go through the roof!

Update:  Brooke Burke and Dereck Hough are the champions.  Lance Bass & partner Lacey Schwimmer took third place and Warren Sapp and Kym Johnson stood under the hot lights sweating it out until the winners were announced.  Congratulations to all of the contestants for their dedication and persistence!

      Julianne Hough left dancing with the stars this week and she won’t be back…at least not next season.  She is going to be concentrating on her music.  So…what does that mean for the competition next season…Julianne is one of the favorite professional dancers to the viewers.  Julianne has two talents…singing and dancing; but singing is her passion.

       She’s talented as both a singer and as a dancer; and, no one wants to see her go…but, at the same time, no one wants to hold her back with her singing career.  Dancers careers are sometimes short-lived due to injury; as we have seen this season alone, there have been many injuries to the couples on the dance floor this season.

        Is Dereck Hough the next to leave for greener pastures?  He also is involved in music and has a band.  Dancing with the stars might be the very catalyst that launches the next generation of entertainers.  Best wishes to all those who strive to do their best in their areas of talent.  We will miss you Julianne!

       Sad news tonight, Anne Pressly, the Little Rock Arkansas news anchorwoman who was found, by her mother, severely beaten this past week in her own home, has died.  Just earlier this week, the reports that we heard on the news, was a little bit more encouraging because some of the swelling, in her brain, was shrinking…and, it was looking as if she would survive; albeit with a long recovery.  She was beaten in the head, face and neck.  I heard someone say that almost every bone in her face was broken. 

       It is hard to imagine that one human being could do such a thing to another.  It is terrible that she will not be able to survive and help find her attacker.  At this point, it is being considered a random attack; others disagree because of the savagery with which she was beaten.  Some say there was too much violence for it to have been a random attack; and because of that…someone who knew her; or felt they knew her, caused this terrible attack. 

       Anne was only 26 years old..but, she had already been making a name for herself on television and more recently in the movies.  She had achieved much success.  She had a small cameo in the new movie, “W”.  Anne was on the morning news show, Daybreak, at the Little Rock affiliate news station KATV.

        Last week on Good Morning America, Anne’s father gave an update on her condition.  He seemed guarded, yet hopeful…all the while, thanking viewers for their thoughts and prayers.  They are a family of faith.  Robin Roberts seemed visibly moved as she expressed the fact that she had only just met Anne recently.  I am sad for the Little Rock community of viewers; for Anne’s family and friends.  I pray that the person is caught who caused her death.

        After the attack, Anne’s purse was discovered missing and someone used one of her credit cards.  I can only hope and pray that there is video of the person who was using the credit card and that it can be traced to the person responsible for this beautiful young woman’s injuries and death.  Please keep her family in prayer at this time of loss.  They will need privacy and healing time and lots of support.
