My blog is 7 years old and I am sort of archiving my old posts
onto another wordpress site as I don’t really want to lose any.
(not sure though if that is really necessary)
I just cut and paste so I don’t need space for pictures on that.
Looking through old posts and bloggers who followed is nice but also makes me sad.
Some have gone to heaven, may they rest in peace, they are not forgotten.
Some have just stopped blogging for an unknown reason,
some closed their blog, it does not even exist at all,
some made their blog private.
I enjoy blogging very much,
it makes me happy,
and if I can reach even one person who likes a bit of my posts,
I am happy.
I don’t always have time to read all blog posts I like .
I have made amazing friends all over the world, met some of you
and I will try to meet more of you personally.
To all my blogging friends
a super BIG THANK YOU
You don’t know how much you mean to me.
You have enriched my world in those last 7 years,
you have made me laugh, cry, think.
I learnt from you, you inspired me, you supported me
and showed me what a wonderful world it is
with you in it.
There is so much love and kindness out there
and we need to spread it as much as possible.
People need love, hugs, appreciation, kindness, peace, praise,
understanding and self esteem.
Let’s keep it going.
I feel truly blessed with all of you around me.
Love you all!

Here are my replies to the 10 questions from Debra:
Can you remember what it was that inspired you to set up a blog?
The initial thought was to have my own website and get to know IT and the internet better. I found blogspot and then wordpress and loved it straight away. The idea that people all over the world can read what I publish is just awesome.
When was it that you published your first ever blog post?
That was on 9th June 2012, wow long ago. 🙂
How would you describe your blog?
It is an inspirational blog, with thoughts of daily life, trying to bring smiles and happiness to the world.
Do you blog as a profession or for fun?
I love it and do it for fun and happiness.
What is your preferred setting when you sit down to blog and publish your writing/photography?
I love to sit in front of my computer, I have 2 monitors where the blog post is being written on the right and I look for pictures and quotes on the left screen, put them into paint to get ready to import into the post. Having a cup of tea nearby is almost a must!
Are there any hard and fast rules you set for yourself when it comes to blogging?
No rules just fun and enjoyment!
What aspect of the ‘bloggersphere’ do you most enjoy?
I love meeting new people via the internet with similar ideas like me. I have already made wonderful friends and met 2 blogger friends in person. I love reading posts of my blogger friends and get inspiration from them and that makes me happy also I learn about other countries and people through other blogs. It is a wonderful way to communicate with bloggers all over!
What aspect of the ‘bloggersphere’ do you find the most daunting?
I don’t really find it daunting… I don’t put any pressure on myself, as it is like a hobby otherwise I wouldn’t enjoy it so much!. Sometimes I don’t have enough time to read all blogs I like to but bloggers are understanding, it is life.
In your view, who is the main reader audience for your blog?
I don’t think I can categorize them, they are from all walks of life from all over the world and I love them all!
What do you do in your spare time that is not reflected/associated with your blogging pursuits?
I love making earrings, do jigsaw puzzles to relax and dance a lot!
