It’s my Blogi-four-sary! #Blogiversary #SundayBlogShare #BlogParty #Blogifoursary

Well, who’da thunk it?

Me, in the blogisphere for FOUR years?!

And what a wonderful four years it has been!

They’ve seen me laugh and cry with you all, publish my own poetry book, finish my age-old WIP, win awards, including (in different years) first, second and third place for Best Overall Blogger at the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards, AND getting to meet so many of my favourite bloggers, and blogily at the Bash too!

Bash group 2018

Psst! Saturday 15th June 2019, in London… are you coming? Click here for more details!

This year, I have still been posting away, but getting more creative and more philosophical.  I was chosen as one of the Fab Five in Charli Mill’s TUFFest Ride rodeo writing competition, and received an Honourable mention too!

I was even asked to be a speaker at the Bloggers Bash, about how to Blog alongside a busy life!

Blogging is such a huge part of my life now, I don’t know what I did with my spare time before, but one thing I know, I am so glad I started, otherwise I wouldn’t have met, in reality or virtually, any of you wonderful Peeps!

And… I’m only a couple of hundred short of 7000 WP followers… The mind boggles!!!

And so to the celebrations…

It’s a party, so let me know what you’re drinking, and leave a link to a favourite post of yours.

Don’t forget to visit others, clink your virtual glasses together in the form of a comment, like and/or share, and help me celebrate my #Blogifoursary!

All round to Ritu’s then…

Have you been to visit the party? Check out Misty’s recount of what’ happening then get your butts on over!!!!!

The Best Things In Life Are Three! – #BlogParty #Blogiversary

Well hey there Peeps!!!

I hope you are all fine and dandy on this wonderful Saturday!

And today, I also celebrate my third Blogiversary!

Just got the WP congrats in too!

And what a crazy ride these last three years have been!

Starting as a total novice, not even knowing what blogging was, to learning technicalities, such as what HTML was (still a little clueless!), then slowly teaching myself (and being helped by others)  the ins and outs of blogging, and introducing Social Media.

Initally, a lone Blog Rider, with no clue as to what to write about, to making connections, creating a Blogily, developing friendships that are truly precious.

At first, rambling on about nothing (okay, so I still do that!) to finding some sort of pattern, (Jill of all trades, master of none!) where my madcap thoughts, and creativity found a home!

And from zero to nearly 5000 WordPress followers, and a whole extra heap who chose to follow me on various Social Media!

From dreams of writing a book, to being a published poet, with a WIP that was stagnant for over 16 years, to something that is finally nearing completion!

A newbie who, in three years has accomplished so much, including the Best Blogger Award, in 2017 at the Annual Bloggers Bash.

And it’s all down to you, Peeps.

Seriously, I wouldn’t still be here, beavering away, with belief in myself, if it wasn’t for the support of everyone who reads, likes, comments on and shares the posts I write.

I wanted to express my gratitude in the form of a Blog Party where I invite you to bring your favourite drink, and party nibbles, suggest a song, and the link to a post you’d love to share!

So, please, come along and enjoy!

Remember to tell us/bring along all:

  1. your favourite drink
  2. your party nibble of choice
  3. a song suggestion
  4. a link to a post that you would love to share

Then, mingle with the other guests! Visit their posts, meet some new folk and generally enjoy!

And if you are able, please share the love, share the post, let’s get this party started!!!!!

So here’s my starting contribution!

1} I’ll have a Barnamint Baileys! 20170216_192633

2} We need pretzels! Image result for pretzels

3} My song for today is Lionel Ritchie’s All Night Long!


4} I invite you to have a browse, since you’re here anyway!!!

A Wandaful Thing

Welcome to my ” Love Day” Blog Party.


If you didn’t get a chance to partake in my Winter Blog Party on November 27, 2016, I hope you can stop by on February 12th – 2017 to share something about Love Day a.k.a.Valentine’s Day.  Please feel free to post anything that conjures up a feeling of love for you. Be that a good book, a cup of coffee, your dog, your kids, a craft, an idea – well you get the point.

I am looking forward to curling up in front of my computer with a nice big box of my favorite chocolates (dark chocolate sea salted caramels – hey I know you were wondering) and a hot cup of tea (or three) and checking out your posts and blogs. So read the rules and I look forward to partying with you on February 12th.

For those of you who…
