Around the World…

I’ve decided to start doing a ‘shout out’ to my readers, viewers, friends and followers across the world, from the first ‘top 3’ countries as per my Word Press blog stats.

So today’s hello, welcome and thank you goes to our friends in (drum roll please):

The United States of America, The United Kingdom, and The United Arab Emirates!

Wow, amazing to glimpse where you’re from, thank you for following 🙂

P.S. It’s not stats alphabetically, that’s just coincidental that they are all ‘United’…it’s the top 3 countries from which people have given me the most views.

If you feel like commenting and telling me a little about life in your country, that would be amazing…otherwise, a big heartfelt welcome (including to all of my other readers of course too, I just thought this would be a bit of a fun thing to do) :).

Also, no matter where in the world you are reading from, feel free to share in the comments which country you are in and anything about your country that you’d like the blogging world community to know! 🙂

 

The wonderful world of widgets

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re all looking upon your day positively.

Welcome to all of my new followers, and thank you to those who have been with me for a while for continuing to drop by.

I just thought I’d mention that I’ve added a few new ‘widgets’ that you can find on the Right Hand Side of my blog to make it easier to navigate (it took me long enough to figure out where to find these add on features, I know!) – calendar, monthly blog archives, and a drop down menu of categories which supplements my main menu at the top of the page.

So, I hope you are able to find something you enjoy reading from the many topics that I write about.

Thanks again, and happy blogging to you all 🙂 x

I’m so pleased and grateful to welcome Sparkyjen https://sparkyjen.com/ as my 100th follower – as a big ‘thank you’, I’d like to write a blog post on a topic of your choosing if you wish me to. 

Thanks to each and every one of you for being a special part of my blogging journey. You brighten up my days, and I hope I can do the same for you too. 

Much love. xx

 

An Invitation to Comment….What one piece of advice would you give to a newbie blogger (me!) ? :)

I am new to blogging, and would welcome your advice.

If you could share one thing you have learned with me, or even think about what advice you would give to your ‘younger self’ when starting out in the blogging world, what would it be?

I would love to read your insights, so please do feel welcome to comment below.

Thanks in advance,

A newbie blogger 🙂

My first day on Word Press – the journey takes flight…

I believe that for many of us, writing is an expression of our soul. It is also a gift  that is not only a means of communication, but of deep and significant connection. When you or I write, and share, we also receive.

This is my first ever day blogging on WordPress. I have blogged occasionally before, some years ago, but for some serendipitous reason unknown to me, I was not able to make the connections of giving and receiving that I seem to have encountered on my first day blogging here.

Perhaps when something is fresh and novel it is easier to be captivated by what we have discovered than when it becomes familiar and commonplace. My first impression of blogging on WordPress is how quickly it facilitates connection, or at least it seems to me that it does.

As human beings making our individual and shared journeys and discoveries through life, we are so much more enriched by what we learn and discover with each other.

I feel as if I have opened a window to a new world, and I can see glimpses of the world that I have never seen before.

‘What a difference a day makes’, say the words of a song…’and the difference is you’.

You, each of you that I have connected with already, in some small way – whether we have read, liked or followed each others posts, enjoyed an as yet unseen part of the world through a photograph, or expressed appreciation in a comment – you have opened up a window to me of a world I had not seen before, and I am grateful.  And so I take to flight on this new journey, excited as to what I will find, and what we may share.

As I said, I am new to this world of blogging, and I may make mistakes along the way, so I welcome any advice and input, and look forward to connecting with you all.

Thanks for stopping by, and taking the time to read this 🙂
