Gosh! I haven’t done this in donkey months and believe me when I say that it perturbs me. My blogging schedule has gone to rack and ruin 😉 Life happens and sometimes when it does, you are left grappling to get a grip on things.

La, di, da, anyway, let’s get it going. Please do send in your precious links to your inspiring, interesting posts that you want others to eyeball so that I can share with my supportive readers. Let’s revive this comatose feature. It will feature twice weekly and you can add your link ‘through this loop,’

This post is closed to comments to keep it tidy. Just click on the link above.

Remember, sharing is caring. When we come together we grow together.’

Thank you.

Over the hill on the yellow brick road

Cathi’s blog posts are simply unique, engaging, humour-filled, with doses of wisdom tucked in between. I doubt I will ever look at peas in a pod or Swiss cheese, old shoes and everything in-between the same way again. She has excellent conversations with the most mundane things in life. Take a peek.

Compassion, Grace, and Mercy

This simple post is such an outpouring of love and goodness. I love it. Are you the beloved? Why not find out.

Family parenting and beyond

Success is easier than you think

‘Success is a culmination of thousands of micro-achievements made.’ I totally love this short encouraging post. Packed with a dose of wisdom, practicality, and reality.

The way love goes

What’s your definition of love? Is it rock steady or does it make your heart flutter?

Love doesn’t happen at first sight. Love, like most good things, occurs when you least expect it.

Preparation for the union art show

DeBorah’s artwork ‘Broadway function en lacquer’ will be displayed at the Union art show this March. I feel proud sis. Nothing like birthing your dreams. Like you said, ‘keep upping your game.’

Can You Contribute A Badge For Featured Posts?

I’ve been thinking of revamping this badge below for something fresh.

 Sharing, Blogs, Networking, Growing Readership, Connection, Bloggers, Blog Posts

Initially, I thought that I would produce the badge by myself, but an afterthought to throw it open to others came to me – after all, ‘featured posts’ is primarily to share and promote posts from other bloggers. It’s for all of you.

So, what do you think? Can you muster up something snazzy in the next one week?

All badge entries will be displayed and votes cast for the favourite. The selected badge will be used for featured posts series for the year and the contributors will receive credit with their sites URL link constantly attached to the badge.

Let’s have fun! Share so others can participate. Thank you.

Today’s featured blogs are:

People forget kindness is free

This is guaranteed to make you smile/chuckle and there are lots of nuggets of wisdom tucked in there as well. I like wisdom.

I just want to go home but I’m already home

Deep, short and reflective post. Where’s home to you?

The Factors That Should Not Be Allowed To Hold Your Blog Back

There are many, many many different bloggers out there trying to stake their claim in the endless and ever-expanding frontier that is the digital landscape. As of last year, there were around 350 million blogs on Tumblr alone. In such an oversaturated marketplace it takes a real pioneering spirit to plant your flag in the dirt and let everyone hear your voice. Broadly speaking, bloggers fall into 3 distinct categories. The first category is made up of hobbyists who use their blog as a whetstone to hone their writing skills, document their day to day lives and/or use their blog as a vehicle to keep far away friends abreast at what’s going on with them. The second group are the semi-pros. They’re committed to growing their blog and while they hope to someday use it as their main source of income… they’re not quite there yet. The third are the professionals. They have a sizeable following, they’ve monetized their blog and use it as their primary source of income.

Blogging, Personal Space, Laptop

Transitioning from the first category to the second is relatively straightforward. All you need to do is commit to creating regular content and put the effort in to grow your audience. Making it into the realms of the professionals, however, is a tricky business and there are many impediments that will try to block your path. Don’t let these repeat offenders stop you from living your dream…

Lack of investment

Few bloggers realize just how much they need to invest to be able to turn pro, which might necessitate a change in net working capital. Your battered old laptop and your basic WordPress site are unlikely to launch you into the stratosphere. A good laptop will be important to ensure that you’re able to manage several processes at once without slowing you down. Creating your own high-resolution images will allow you to stand out from the crowd so a good quality camera is also a good idea. You’ll also need to invest in your own domain name and a web hosting package with enough space to store your content.  

Apathy

All bloggers start their journey with boundless enthusiasm, churning out content with gusto. If the content doesn’t find its audience, however, it’s easy for that enthusiasm to erode and turn into apathy and self-doubt. Before long they’re barely posting content anymore because… Why bother? If this sounds achingly familiar you may need to give yourself a shake to stay motivated.

Fear

There’s no greater enemy to creativity than fear. Fear that we’ll never be as good as our peers. Fear that nobody will care to read our content. Fear that we’ll receive nasty comments. Fear that we’ll be shunned by the community of bloggers and fear that we’ll be laughed out of the internet. While fear can be potent in stifling your creative spark it must not be allowed to extinguish it. Post regularly, share on social media regularly and maintain good relations with your fellow bloggers and the interest will come!

Lack of focus

With so much content out there, people like to go to particular blogs to read about very particular things. Therefore the more you know your niche the better. If you’re a parenting blog, choose a specialism in the realm of parenting like nutrition or education. If you love to write about movies, specialize in a genre like science fiction or horror. The more focused your niche, the better chance you have of reaching your target audience.

Abandoned:

Take a look. What comes to your mind? Poignant photo. Like is said, an image can relay a thousand words or thoughts and Deborah’s words simply tugs at some strings.

How tough can it get?

Every day, I see or read about another inspiring woman and these little stories keep me going.

Reasons why being single is becoming more desirable

What’s your opinion? Are people better off staying single and unmarried? Is marriage too much of a hassle?

Samhain blessings

You learn something new every day. I must admit I didn’t know what Samhain meant before now.

You’ve done the excuse thing all through the year and now you’ve got the perfect excuse called Winter. No more excuses.

How contented are you? Or are you fussing and cussing and getting mad over everything?

My journey to a healthier me

For all those of us battling with the scale and wishing we could whittle the fat away. This great post is for you.

I’ve decided to accept all of me…every beautiful curvaceous rounded edge and corner of my body. I am proudly me. I had to get to a point where I started to love myself. I just needed to stop the battle within myself against myself. Self-acceptance became my focus point instead of pushing away this beautiful person based on a number on the scale.

Awesome Awetism Adventures

What brilliant idea this is. I simply love it. Take a quick peek.

Raising Teens

Our children emulate us. Most of their attitude/behaviour is learned and this is largely from their homes. If we are not better adults, how exactly do we expect to have better children?

Bullying starts at home. It starts with adults who see no problem with posting brutal responses to tragic stories because they need to feel that they are better than others—just as a school-yard bully would do; they need to claim the position as better parents, better guardians of their teens, more efficient workers, etc. This competition is so destructive to society.

Finding a happy disposition in a sea of disparate negativity

Fabulous post!

Choose to be the type of person that everyone wants to work with, to talk to, to collaborate with…a positive and happy disposition is a cohesive force!
