Nomination for the Versatile blogger’s award!


versatile-blogger-wordpress

I was kindly nominated for the versatile blogger’s award as a big new year’s surprise by http://earth-rider.com/2013/12/27/the-season-of-giving-awards/ and even though I had taken the resolution to restore all my vanished photos back into my blog instead of forever procrastinating I decided that such generosity shouldn’t go unnoticed & took upon myself to immediately get to it before getting on with the restoration…
So, my excuses go to all my bloggers for not following, liking your posts. I hope you forgive me & understand the sacrifices needed for me to update my blog.

A blog is not one of quality when the photography or the natural recipes categories are void of photos…

Here are the rules I got from http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/vba-rules/

Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

So, here goes, the fifteen bloggers I nominated are …

I know that not all of these bloggers will have the time to accept this award as it is quite time consuming nevertheless they are each and everyone in its own right a blogger of tremendous high quality which merits to be recognized by publishing its link in this blog.
This will be my tribute to their achievement in the domain of their endeavor 🙂

Finally I’ll include as it’s required seven things about myself.

1. I’m mad about the sea & anything connected to nature
2. One of my dreams is to go off-grid & live off the fruits of my labor
3. I dream (once again 😉 ) of a kind gentle honest world
4. I’d like to secure a safe future for my grandchildren
5. Surrounded in an atmosphere of artists is where I’d love to thrive in
6. It would be nice if my weaknesses would get weaker 😉
7. I’d love one day to have the privilege to meet a personality (again, in the domain of art)

All my thanks again for this award!

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!
