THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! All you lovely, possibly deranged, people out there who have followed my blog! I am sincerely very, very grateful to each and every one of you for the support that you’ve given me over the last year and for your warmth and kindness. The blogging community is something very special and I am honoured to be part of it
Have you ever just sat down next to a complete stranger and started telling them your life story, without so much as a by your leave; just rambled on incessantly with no pause to gauge their reaction? If you did you’d probably find that they’d shuffle along and, eventually, off their seat and then walk away as fast as their feet will carry them while turning around every few seconds just to make sure you’re not following them. So, my question to you is, if you wouldn’t behave like that in real life, why would you do it in the blogging world?
Do you have a local, a bar or a coffee shop where you can walk in and be sure of finding someone that you know? You can sit down for 10 minutes or a couple of hours and just chat with people about anything and nothing. If you’re feeling down they’ll buy you a drink and listen to your woes and you do the same for them if they’re having a rough day. Do you know a place like that?
Where do you get your best ideas for your blog? You know, those posts where you feel like you’ve created something really special and you want everyone to read it right away. Do you have a special place that just seems to feed you inspiring thoughts? I like to call it the Genius Spot, hence the title…..ooohhh you thought I meant……noooo sorry, I was talking about something else entirely!
Since I started this blog a few months ago I’ve written over 125,000 words and, for the most part, they’ve all been pretty well behaved. They pop into my head in their droves, without any real prompting and then just seem to organise themselves into something that I can hand over to you guys. We have fun together, they flow and I ebb and we mosey along at our own pace, holding hands and skipping occasionally. So why is it that, when I try to organise them all into book format they decide that they hate me and they’re going on holiday without me?????
I would love to be able to give each and every one of you a personal thank you and a big hug but as I can’t this is for all of you with my sincere thanks:
And the award goes to…….those who are creative, positive, and inspiring, while spreading sunshine to the blogging community and, apparently, that includes me! I am chuffed to little mintballs!! A big shout out and a huge thank you to Word Hunter who kindly nominated me for the award and set a bunch of questions that I found surprisingly difficult to answer. Of course that could be because I’m still suffering from the plague a cold but enough playing for sympathy (if you could just pass the tissues and a hot toddy would be lovely, thanks) let’s get on with the rules:
I’ve just realised that my blog has 1,000 comments and I am absolutely chuffed to little mintballs!! Thank you so much to everyone who has ever stopped by and commented on one of my posts, it really does mean so much to me and I love chatting with you guys (which is weird because in real life I’m pretty unsociable)
Good morning everyone, I hope you’ve had a good start to your day ;O) Yesterday, the lovely Richa, creator of fun and inspiring iScriblr, nominated me for the Freedom of Expression challenge; how could I say no to that! This is a first for me so I’m very excited and a little nervous (really hoping I’ve understood the rules!). At the end of the post I’ll be nominating 3 other bloggers who I really respect and admire and I hope that they’ll pick up the challenge. Here we go guys:
