The future of Coffee Shop Journal

I am in a post-Maxwellian overload. If you've been to any major thought-provoking conference, you know what I mean. Ideas are pouring past my poor brain faster than I have time or energy to write them down. Now some of that  may be due to caffeine overload (probably is!), but not all. This Maxwell conference has impacted me more than others I've been to, perhaps because the emphasis was less on leadership and more on personal goals and -- quite…

Coffee Shop Journal gets a new style!

Coffee Shop Journal is trying out a new style! What do you think? David and I are not finished tweaking the re-design, but I couldn't wait to "live in the new space" for awhile. I'd love to hear your comments as we work through this process, so please comment and register your opinion. At the moment, these are some things that I'm pondering: I don't have enough coffee here! My java-loving heart wants to see some more coffee cups or…

Coffee Shop News

Hello everyone! I've missed you! I deliberately took most of Easter week off from the blog in order to practice the concept of Sabbath, resting, allowing God to speak into a space of time and energy. But I'm back and brimming with tidbits that don't fit into whole posts. So enjoy the chatter around the coffee shop today. Last year I went to a conference called Q. At the time, I knew Q was having an impact on my life,…

Blog Art: Wordle again

I love to do this every once in awhile to see if I'm writing about the the things that matter. Today I was encouraged! I wonder what a Wordle Art of the words that actually come out of our mouths would look like? Wow...now that's a wee bit convicting. Wordle Artwork can be found here.

Search terms for Coffee Shop Journal

I thought that these search engine terms were interesting. They really aren't a bad list of things to be known for. Some days -- as most of you blog writers know -- the search terms are downright bizarre. And if you go back to hunt for how in the world someone found Coffee Shop Journal by searching on "Places to get drunk in San Diego" or other such bizarre phrases, you can never replicate the steps. No, that wasn't  a…

Wordle and Coffee Shop Journal

I know everyone has had the link to Wordle on their sites, but I did a wordle of all the words in Coffee Shop Journal and it made me so happy I had to share it! You know what makes me so happy? That the words Wordle picked to highlight are exactly the words that I would want to represent Coffee Shop Journal. So amazing.

Why this is a Coffee Shop Journal

I recently explained on my other blog, Dancing Thru Her Daddy's World, how the death of my father three years ago rocked the foundations of my world. The process of re-grounding myself resulted in a comforting awareness of who my true Father is, and that this is the world he has given me to dance through to my heart's content. Well in a way, Coffee Shop Journal is named for my father as well, even though I have owned the…

What Am I Doing Here?

A first post on a new blog is way too much pressure for anyone to handle! I've been stressing over what to say, how to say it. What is important enough for my first topic? I can't do it. I refuse to do it. So I'm just going to tell you what I am thinking about Coffee Shop Journal right now, and we'll jump in. I never drank my first cup of coffee until I was 35, and I certainly…
