JoJoisms

September JoJoisms

I’ve been busy creating more Visual JoJoisms this past month. Here are the ones you may have missed if you’re not on Facebook or they didn’t see fit to show all my posts to you!

I Can’t Prove I’m Me!

Over the last month, Facebook has demanded that I prove I’m me in order to allow me to continue to post on my For the Love of Purple Facebook fan page I’ve had for almost 10 years. I have almost 9300 fans over there who miss my purple posts. In fact, the number went up […]

Creativity, Age, and Silver Linings…Oh, My!

I’ve been busy creating memes for my clients and my social media platforms, but I did create a few new JoJoisms this past month.  Here they are in no particular order. I created these three slightly differently. Which one is your favorite? A Facebook friend of mine asked everyone to post how old they were.  […]

Writing JoJo-isms

My life has come full circle.  I began writing my JoJoisms about communication way back when.  Then, as my life changed, these sayings came to be about every topic under the sun…or at least under my life experience.  (Which is rather prolific!) I wrote JoJoisms about marriage, parenting, finances, health issues, empty nesting, getting older, […]

It’s official! The Big Book of JoJoisms has a registered copyright!

I’ve been writing since I was about 9 years old.  I’m now a post menopausal writer who has to color her gray more often so that’s a LOT OF YEARS! I had never thought about getting a copyright until I began putting my JoJoisms on the mugs we are now selling under the MugXpressions by Grape […]

Why You Should Tell Your Story Before It’s Over

I wrote this article some time ago after reading a meme on Facebook.  It struck me so important to share how strongly I believe this saying is a detriment to inspiring others with our story already in progress that I spoke out about it.  That, in turn, inspired others to believe that they might have […]

Deliver Me

Two weeks ago, I shared the dark place I was in after my year of faith that never (always) was and my husband’s job loss. This week I want to share how God has begun to deliver me from that dark place into His light.  As is usually the case with God, it’s a series of small […]

I knew I was in trouble when I lost my sense of humor

I’ve always been a clown. I love making people laugh, especially myself. The more struggles life threw at me the more humorously I saw things. Until one day when I just couldn’t find anything funny to say. So I just didn’t post that day on Facebook…or the next day, or the next day, or the […]

I have a confession to make…

I’m going to admit something I’ve been trying to hide.  I’ve been struggling lately.  Actually, I’ve struggled with this for quite some time on and off.  I’m a bit frustrated and overwhelmed, but mostly I’ve been feeling like nobody cares. It’s silly, really.  An innocent joke made by a family member here.  A small perceived […]

Like if You’re for Good Stuff

I’ve seen several graphics on Facebook that seem rather silly to me.  They say things like, “Like if you’re against violence.”  Would anyone be FOR violence?  And how would you know if your friends, who didn’t click like, actually were pro violence or if they just felt contrary? Just seems an odd kind of post […]
