I can’t believe I did it! It was a sheer marathon, I’ve been busy today (besides last week & the week before…) for 11 hrs precisely restoring & improving the whole category.

My beginnings were…well, as a beginner and I made some changes in the titles so that the translations would follow the French original text (the first few poems were in separate posts) the photos settings are fewer & all mine practically compared to copyright free drawings previously taken from Google.

My next self-imposed assignment will be my painting category. A blogger brought it to my attention when she browsed through it & couldn’t find any. As a result it appears to me as a priority. But I’ll start next week in order to recuperate & put my neck at rest from these long hours 🙂

Feel free to browse & let me know if you enjoy the improvements… Any of you with ideas on how to improve this blog will be welcome. My goal is to make it easy and pleasant to visit!

Enjoy the rest of the week!

Blog restoration update


Taking on yourself too much

This morning I woke up with a feeling of dread knowing I finally had to face the daunting task of restoring 400 posts with each one containing one to eleven photos!
I kept talking myself into taking it by category or even by post so as not to get discouraged & procrastinate as a result…
I finally grabbed the sliver of courage I had by some miracle, held fast on to it and started tackling the last few posts of the poetry category & decided to go on working (for how long it takes) until it’s completed.
Then I decided that if 99% of the photos have vanished I might as well start from scratch & bring down the pixels to all of them & just maybe I will have saved myself the trouble to have to create a new oawritingspoemspaintings2!There is a silver lining after all 🙂

So, I cleaned up my media once again (!) to start afresh. All in all I was busy six hours on the blog & decided (when my head felt squeezed in a vise) to stop after giving you an update.

I’ll try my best to go on liking but if I don’t manage due to the long hours of work on this blog, my sincere apologies to all my supportive & faithful followers 🙂
I consider this as the Resurrection of my blog and its rebirth will be thanks to your patience. Once again a big thank you to you all!
