How to Become Addicted to Blogging — November 13, 2017

How to Become Addicted to Blogging

To become addicted to blogging

Is extremely easy to do

Just follow the steps I will teach you

And you will find yourself hooked on it too.

First, you must write a blog post

As without one, you can’t go very far

It can be about almost anything

From sewing to buying a new car!

Then you sit and wait anxiously

Hoping you’ll get a response

You know that it is important

Although you feign nonchalance

Next, you have to be friendly

It’s vital to have interaction

The giving and receiving of comments

Is a cause for immense satisfaction.

Blogging takes a lot of commitment

So doing it every day

Is a great way to speed up the process

As addiction will soon come your way.

Other bloggers will become your new buddies

And you learn from each other as well

You spend  all your time now on blogging

You are falling under its spell.

Sometimes it becomes so annoying

When you have something interesting to say

But you haven’t the time to post it

As ‘real life’ gets in the way!

You constantly check notifications

And hope there’s a comment or two

This blogging obsession is deepening

And there’s not a lot you can do!

You have even started to notice

That sometimes when you go out

And something unusual happens

It will be great to blog about!

If you are paying attention

And are following my tips to the letter

Then you too will be addicted to blogging

I can’t think of anything better!

 

Welcome To Everyone From Edwina’s Episodes — October 8, 2017

Welcome To Everyone From Edwina’s Episodes

I would just like to give a huge, warm welcome to everyone that has come over here from Edwina’s Episodes. I am so very sad to have to let that go, especially as I had built up such a huge community there, but I am hoping to continue my blogging friendships her now.

I will still be writing about the kind of things that I did before, anecdotes and funny stories, as well as my quest for a healthier lifestyle. Of course there will be poems, well rhymes and maybe the odd limerick or two and perhaps I will continue with the haiku writing that I enjoy.

I still intend to collaborate with my lovely friend Sandra from Wild Daffodil blog with her fantastic shell and pebble families which I have been writing some poems for.

Although I am not going to bring the entire blog over here, (in case it self-destructs), I have decided that I will publish a few of my latest posts that were on Edwina’s Episodes. This blog hasn’t been active for a while and I would like to have something here that I have written recently, and something for people to read whilst I establish this blog.

Thanks to all of you that have put up with the glitches and Gremlins that happened during the last few weeks, and most of all, thank you for sticking with me! I really appreciate it.

 

Pastures New… — March 25, 2016

Pastures New…

For one reason or another, I taken a leaf out of some other bloggers’ books and have decided to move to a self-hosted website.

I am in the process of doing this now, and given my record with technology, I thought I had better let you know,  in case everything disappears in a puff of smoke and I am stranded in a twilight world of nothingness.

I should still be found at edwinasepisodes.com, and I hope to be able to migrate everything over from here, (hope being the operative word)!!!

Anyway, I do hope you will still come and visit me….there will be nibbles!

 

Free-For-All Friday —

Free-For-All Friday

Well here we are, Friday again, and this time, a very Good Friday  – in more ways than one!

Of course, I have got a few Easter treats lined up for your enjoyment which I am sure you will enjoy. Please go and visit their blogs for plenty more goodies.

Deborah Drezon Carroll, Author Now, I love to have a laugh, and sometimes will write a rather tongue-in-cheek post. I never want to cause offense to anybody, but as Debby has found out, some people need to lighten up a bit! I thought this post was brilliant, and so is Debby for sticking up for this blogger!

Barsetshire Diaries I love David’s blog. He has a very entertaining way of telling a story,not to mention a fantastic taste in music! Oh, and he gives the BEST hugs too!

Dublin Housewife This is just one of those blogs that really makes me laugh. Maybe it is the Irish accent that does it but I love her expressions and banter with ‘Jimmy.’ Absolutely brilliant!

The Writer Next Door I was totally blown away by this story, and I am not normally a lover of that genre at all! I loved the sensuality of it, and the surprise ending too!Well, there you have an Easter Eggstravaganza (sorry, couldn’t resist it),

Well, there you have an Easter Eggstravaganza (sorry, couldn’t resist it). Enjoy!

Happy Friday, and to those that celebrate it, Happy Easter!

Free-For-All Friday

It’s Friday already and I have a few fantastic posts for you to feast upon. Please go and visit them as you will find much more there to enjoy. You will be so pleased you went.

Cindy Knoke. This is a lovely post and makes me proud to be a part of this wonderful blogging community.

Stuff and What if… I loved this….both the images and the imagery!

Fourth Generation Farm Girl Tonya shares a brilliant way to beat stress with us here!

I know you are going to love all of these.  Enjoy!

Happy Friday!

Free-for-All Friday — March 11, 2016

Free-for-All Friday

My goodness, how the week has flown by. It is already Friday and time to feature some of the wonderful posts that I have enjoyed this week. There are actually an extra two,  that for some reason, did not make it into last week’s post so I have included those as well.

Please visit these wonderful blogs and see what else you are missing, you will not be disappointed!

Erika Kind This post was very enlightening, and something I am still working on doing. Erika always has a quote or some words of wisdom to inspire and encourage, and I hope you will check out her new book whilst you are there too.

Jen’s Pen Den I always love to learn new things, as well as brush up on things I thought I already knew but actually hadn’t perhaps got quite right! Jen is wonderful at explaining things as well as illustrating her point with examples.

Myths of the Mirror. This was a great post that raised a very valid point, but  of course, me being such an idiot roared my head off at the pics Diana created. Brilliant! #

Joeyfully Stated This was a typical Joey post. Telling it as it is in her own unique style, but what she says always makes sense, and usually makes me smile too!

Little steps to Somewhere This post brought back memories of when I was a teenager trying to make myself look gorgeous (and failing)!

Sacha Black This post was just adorable! It made me laugh and took me back a few years! The end result was just perfect, though.

Behind Distant doors I have met a few of these characters and Azul has got it spot-on with her brilliant poem!

Well, I am spoiling you all this week with a veritable feast! Enjoy!

Happy Friday!

 

 

Free-For-All Friday — March 4, 2016

Free-For-All Friday

Free for all Friday

It’s Friday, it’s Springtime (ahem, for some of us), and I have got a plethora of posts for your delight. Please go and visit these wonderful blogs as you are sure to find many more delights lurking there!

Wendy of the Rock This post made me laugh, I could totally relate to it as well, sadly!

Like Mercury Colliding I just loved this. Kat wrote the perfect haiku for it.

Annette’s Place This is a lady after my own heart, and I enjoyed this.

Wild Daffodil Daffy is so clever and creative and this is just one of the many brilliant things she has made.

 

So there you have a real mixed bag of goodies to keep you going! Enjoy!

Happy Friday!

Free-For-All Friday! — February 26, 2016

Free-For-All Friday!

Free for all Friday

This week has passed by in the blink of an eye and here we are, it’s  Friday again! I have of course got an assortment of goodies for you to get stuck into over the weekend. Please take some time to visit these wonderful blogs to see what other treasure they have hidden there!

Daily Echo I thought that I was pretty good at spelling and grammar. After reading this post I realise that I have failed miserably, and am not up to the standards set by our government for SEVEN year olds!

Homemade Naturally Donna has some really great ideas and I loved this one!

For Friends Without Borders, This is Rob’s brand new blog and a wonderful concept. He had given about 30 of us admin rights so that we can all share this blog and publish whatever we choose; wonderful freedom for some of us that have to be a little more discreet on our own blogs!

How The Cookie Crumbles Tess is one of those people that I really envy! Her ability to tell a gripping and entertaining short story is brilliant.

A Certain Point of View One of my favourite poets has done it again! This is just so bloody funny you will LOVE it!

 

Free-for-all Friday — February 12, 2016

Free-for-all Friday

Free for all Friday

Welcome to another Friday Free-for-all where I have found a selection of brilliant posts that I have enjoyed reading this week. As usual, I have tried to choose a wide selection for your delight! Please do go and visit these blogs as they all have other tasty treats for you to sample!

A Certain Point of View I love Al’s blog. The fact that he likes poems of all kinds as I do just adds to my enjoyment. This one is so understated, but tickled me nonetheless!

Dream Big Dream Often This is an inspirational article written by Danny that really touched me. Here is a man that has some serious medical issues yet he is such a support and help to others, never too busy to interact with the many bloggers that follow him.

Behind the White Coat What I love about our favourite doctor is that fact that she is so down to earth and has a great sense of humour! This post made me laugh my head off, probably because I have been there!

My Spanglish Familia  La Sabrosona is a very creative, innovative, and imaginative person; just look at this post to see why!

Single Family Asylum Oh this post takes me back. I really felt for him – once I had finished laughing my head off that is!

So there is your little selction box this week. Enjoy!

Happy Friday!

Free-For-All Friday — February 5, 2016

I have a veritable feast for you this week too which I am sure you are going to enjoy. Please do go and visit these blogs as you don’t want to miss out on their other goodies they have for you.

Elusive Trop A lovely, simple haiku, but written with a lot of thought,  that really appealed to me.

La Vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin TJ always has such a stunning collection of beautiful photographs to showcase his stories and haikus. I, of course, chose this one!

Hugh’s Views and News I love this post, and laughed my head off when I saw the video!

Dandelion Fuzz A lovely, heart-warming post

Dublin Housewife A lovely tribute to Sir Terry Wogan by our favourite Dublin housewife, in her own unique style.

Steve Says I don’t really have to say anything about this post, the pictures say it all!

So there you have it, some wonderful posts to keep you entertained. Enjoy!
