#JusJoJan 2018 January 31st and #1LinerWeds Thank You

I hope that you are enjoying my posts from Linda’s Just Jot it January as much as I am enjoying writing them. Sadly it is the very last day today and it is combined with One-Liner Wednesday as well. 

Thank you Linda for another fun month of Just Jot it January, I have thoroughly enjoyed it, and it has gone far too quickly!

A short and sweet post today, to thank Linda for hosting #JusJoJan and to everyone else that joined in. It has been great fun using your prompts and reading your posts!

#FundayMonday There Are Many Ways to be Artistic

Today’s video poem is about the different ways of being artistic and creative.


If you enjoyed those poems, and have time for a cuppa then you might like to check out my book Rhymes of the Times. It has many more poems like this and is perfect for dipping in and out of when you fancy a little pick-me-up.

Episode 199: My Dream Theme! — March 6, 2015

Episode 199: My Dream Theme!

Today’s Blogging 101 task is to try out a couple of new themes, even one that you have no intention of keeping. I am not actually going to participate in this one because I played around with my theme recently and I kind of like how it looks at the moment!

I like things that are either really simple, or extremely loud and snazzy! Two completely opposite extremes.  I am not a very arty or creative person (except maybe with words), so have to make do with the bog standard version of the theme,

My blog is pretty uncomplicated anyway, It usually follows the same kind of format, of writing an essay style piece about something, and posting a (hopefully) relevant picture to illustrate my point.

I tend to stick to what I know how to do, which isn’t a lot! I have worked out how to add  videos which is great as I wanted to read some of my poems out and I have found this easier than I expected once I got the hang of it.

I love widgets, and have found the theme I use (Sela) is pretty generous with them so that enables me to put in my favourite blogs and blogging community. I can also put badges on there such as the one for Blogging 101!

I am on the lookout still for a lovely, loud and colourful theme, that is good for mostly text and the odd picture or video. If anyone knows of one that I have missed then I would love to hear about it!
