As we draw a close to the working week (well for me at least) I ponder over the last week, normally on a Thursday I’m swimming as it gives me time to think. From this week though my Thursdays change to a Tuesday (due to the gym timetable) so tonight before I do anything else I thought I’d have a bit of procrastination come detox blog.
Whilst I’ve joinined the University of blogging101 I have shared with you who I am and what I’m about, explaining why I’m here! I’ve said ‘helloooo’ to my lovely neighbours (and what a crazy bunch you are, but hey that’s good!) I’ve not only changed my theme but the name of my blog (normally as a rule I don’t like change, but I’ve inhaled it in like a chocolate cake).
Then there was the Weekend Warriors, following topics of blogs that I’ve never heard of was a challenge but I grasped it (like I would Donnie Wahlbergs bum!)and I went for it. I discovered a whole new world out there of travellers, procrastinators, bakers and candlestick makers! With the tool of the recommended blogs link I also found some others like me out there! (yes, go on say it, crazy like me, I know you’re thinking it!)
Titles of the other blogs became a bit of a obsession, trying to find the most fun, the crazy and damn right off their trolley! HarsH ReaLiTy aka http://aopinionatedman.com had me curious, he was one of the first blogs I started to follow when I joined WordPress. Here an opinionated guy who talks about his day to day experience and facing up to reality of life as it really is, but not in a negative way but none the less he kept me (and still does) entertained.
Then there was http://aprettypennyblog.com, a girl who lives in Florida who owns a flower shop. Her website is always a joy to read, all happiness and flowers….a complete contrast to HarsH ReaLiTy but if life was the same we would be so bored wouldn’t we?
I absolutely adore photography, and I discovered a few websites where I would spend endless amounts of time just looking through the pictures. Admittedly not so much the written parts of the blogs but because the photography was so beautiful so I have a good excuse! One of these was http://theeffstop.com sometimes the tips were more handy for my husband as a photographer which I would share with him, but all the nature pictures I loved.
I was looking through one day and came across this video which was posted http://vimeo.com/63653873 by http://ofitchyfeetandbeyond.wordpress.com. Amazing that google can create such a magnificent adventure and also it helped me discover this blog. I enjoyed reading about the travelling escapades of a guy who not only wants to visit at least 98 countries (way to go!) but also take part in the Peruvian Ayahuasca ceremony which I didn’t even knew existed till now! http://dawnontheamazon.com/blog/2010/12/12/what-happens-during-an-ayahuasca-ceremony/
There is a high population of the world that spends a lot of time drinking coffee (me included) and finding this post http://venturingeast.wordpress.com/2014/09/11/a-letter-to-coffee/ giving appreciation for a cup of coffee to what it deserves along with some wit was a much enjoyable read!
Having had health problems along with a few miscarriages I discovered other women just like me which for me was quite a step forward, being able to read about their issues and how their stories almost mirrored mine. Two of my favourites were http://oureggcellentadventure.wordpress.com/2014/09/23/everything-happens-for-a-reason/ and http://myinfertilitystory.wordpress.com/2014/09/23/planting-a-tree/ I thought that both these blogs, from the heart were beautiful which made me go back to read my own post a few days ago https://writinginpurpleink.wordpress.com/2014/09/18/my-dream-reader-would-be-my-baby-b-blogging101/ and although i drop a few tears on my desk as I typed it, I will always have fond memories of being given the opportunity to do this as I would have never thought of doing it before now so thank you http://blogging101september2014.wordpress.com
I’ve enjoyed every moment of this blogging101 and hope that my fellow bloggers are having fun too, nice to see you stop by and have a fab weekend x
