Day 135 of 366: Blog Challenge 2012
I’m no sooner back in Australia and I discover – now that I am more focused – that Facebook never disappoints.
When you are travelling, even if you are looking at your Facebook, you don’t take too much notice of the News Feed. So, this morning as I am having my morning cup of tea, I found some things that made me smile. I do receive updates from a number of sites I find interesting so here are some of the headlines that took my fancy:
Heidi Cohen (Social Media Marketing)
“Have a blog only a mother could love?” said the headline. Well, of course I was going to sit up and take notice of this one. It said: “Bloggers are a lot like mothers. We put our hearts and souls into our blogs and want them to succeed. But the problem is that often we’re too close to them to see obvious errors that hold them back from reaching their full potential.”
Oh no, I said to myself. I don’t think I want that one today when I am still trying to fit back into ordinary life at present. Perhaps another time. But, I do like your heading Heidi …
Paddington Clinic (Naturopathic Clinic)
“Beyond apples: A serving a day of dark chocolate might keep the doctor away”
“Someone once called Paris the City of Love. Clearly this person was either drunk, lying or referring to that long-term relationship stage of love where you start to hate and resent everything the other person does …”
So now on this latest blog she is apologising for being so negative about Paris and says: “Dear Paris. Can I call you Paris? Perhaps I was a little hard on you earlier. I’m sorry.” She continues by saying what she does love about Paris. Now this made me feel better as Geoff and I both loved Paris, even though we do know that sometimes things are not perfect there!
“Dear Fiji. Can I call you Fiji? Perhaps I was a bit hard on you earlier. Now, I think there are some decidedly wonderful things about you that I like and I need to tell you that. Okay? You are such a unique country with your beauty, your people are so friendly that it blows my mind. We will miss you!”
Okay, happy now? I just had to get that off my chest!
Well, it is time to finish my blog for the day. Oh, by the way, before I close, I heard why Kelly Higgins-Divine whose photo blog I had been following every day had suddenly stopped posting on April 12th. She has now posted on May 5th a photo with the title “Day OMG It has been a while.” Finally, she explains how life got too hectic. You are forgiven Kelly! (http://project366khd.blogspot.com.au/).
Enough for the day. Off I go until tomorrow when we shall all meet once again …
