    In this new social world we live in, where we are expected to interact with our online following every day or two, it can be a bit overwhelming.  Coming up with fresh ideas at the drop of a hat ain’t easy my friends…not easy at all.<!--more-->This, of course, brings up the question, how do people do it?  How do they write and tweet every couple of days with new and interesting topics that interest their quote/unquote target market?  Well, I will tell you how…Remember way back when you had to tackle book reports in grammar school and how you absolutely dreaded the outline part?  I do.  I never understood why I could just sit down and write.  After all, I read the book and knew what was in it.  What I did not know at the time was that the outline was done so that you could organize your thoughts and hit the high points of the book.Okay, I can already hear you moaning…Noooooo, not an outline…!!!Yeah, that is exactly what I’m saying but you will be amazed at how much time it will save you and how much better your posts will be.  The saving grace of it all is that you do not have to follow your outline exactly. On some days you are going to be inspired to write about something else and there is no teacher leaning over your shoulder criticizing whether you follow your outline or not.This being said, I thought I would share some of my basic six month list with you. Although a generalist in many ways, these areas represent where I enjoy spending most of my time.  I love all antiques except maybe there are a few things where I just think “ewww”.  There will be other articles that have nothing to do with my outline but this outline provides me with instant ideas when I run dry with other things.  And that is the point…your outline provides you with specific things to write about when that blank page in front of you is SO empty.   Jewelry Identification  Identification Marks Construction Materials History Care Of Glassware History EAPG Opalescent Carnival Glass Art Glass Marks Wedgwood Jasperware History Marks

    Hello, I specialize in the restoration and repair., primarily older ones such as family heirlooms. This is a category where many people claim proficiency yet few really are. I use many techniques, some learned, and some attained through experience. While I use Photoshop as my main platform, I also use several other programs to achieve a unique result for every photograph. I'd love for you to see my work at Photofixations.com
