Q #AtoZChallenge blog writing a to z april challenge quotes footnotes anecdotes linky

Q is for Quotes for #AtoZChallenge

In my desk diary every couple of days there is a quote at the bottom of the page.  You might call it a ‘quote’, ‘footnote’ or even  an ‘anecdote’ from a famous person, past or present.  I love to read these little snippets and I love to share them with you!  Here is the most recent one…

…but now to revamp!  So, on the last Monday of each month, I will share my favourite quote of the coming month from my diary.  Depending on the words, I may share my thoughts on them.  Or they may simply ‘speak for themselves’.

I would also love to hear your thoughts on the quote that I choose to share by way of you commenting on my blog post.  And I would like to invite you to share any of yours in a blog post by linking up each month.  It can be any quote, footnote or anecdote from the top, middle or bottom of your diary or calendar, or even a website that has inspired you with words.

Full details will be posted up in the next ‘Footnotes’ blogpost on 25th May…  Come back and join in the fun!

This is where I share my pick of the best blogs that I’ve read in the last week or so and I invite you to do the same.  This week’s (and every week’s in April) has a distinctly alphabet-feel about it, due to me partaking in the #AtoZChallenge!  Please link up your favourite blog post (or posts) of the week (funny, serious, somewhere in-between, part of another linky or stand-alone… anything goes!).  Then sit back, read a few other posts in the link up and enjoy…

The link up is open from  6 am Saturdays to midnight the following Friday.

And my favourites were…

~

Such a thought-provoking post from PartTimeMonster exploring women in the social order…

~

Ask, Believe, Receive as the Law of Attraction advises… Joy reaffirms this ‘concept’.

Such an incredibly clever piece of fiction from Renee at Mummy Tries that keeps you hanging on right to the end…

~

…I hope you enjoyed reading these as much as I did!

‘P’ is for Pinterest #AtoZChallenge

Hello and welcome to my take on the #AtoZChallenge.  You can find out why I’m taking part in ‘From Alpha to Zulu and everything in between…’

Onward!

#AtoZChallenge blog writing a to z april challenge pinterest pin bookmark social media

P is for Pinterest for #AtoZChallenge

Are you the sort of person who doesn’t ‘get’ new social media platforms?

I didn’t get Facebook… then I got sucked in.

I didn’t get Twitter… then I got sucked in.

I didn’t get Google+… then I got sucked in.

There are tons more social media platforms out there and even with all the best intention in the world, I wouldn’t even have time to get sucked into them as well.

Which is just as well because my time is already getting sucked away by pinterest.  From funnies, to inspirational life quotes.  From blog posts I’ve written to blog posts I’ve read.  From ‘Just Wow’ moments, to ‘My Zen’. I’ve created boards which I think cover most aspects of my likes :)  Oh yes, I love a good pinning session!!

I also pin my posts to my blog board and have it in mind to get to grips with infographics in the not too distant future…

Want to pin with me?  Then follow along :)

‘O’ is for Ordinary #AtoZChallenge

Onward!

O #AtoZChallenge blog writing a to z april challenge ordinary extraordainary extra-ordinary happy grateful complicated pregnancy

‘O’ is for Ordinary sharing for #AtoZChallenge

 

We’re all just ordinary people, spinning around on this ordinary ball of energy called planet earth!

Going about our ordinary lives, with our ordinary jobs, in our ordinary day to day lives, with our ordinary friends and our ordinary families, our ordinary children…

But wait. No, I’m not!

I’m not ordinary, I’m extra-ordinary.

I came through a traumatic, near fatal pregnancy and labour.

I’ve got a extra-ordinary husband,

an extra-ordinary child…

There’s nothing extra-ordinary about my life.

And for that I’m happy and grateful.

Every. Single. Day.

:)

‘N’ is for Nine Lives #AtoZChallenge

Onward!

#AtoZChallenge blog writing a to z april challenge nine lives cat nap bounce sleep rest

‘N’ is for Nine sharing for #AtoZChallenge

 

So, apparently a cat has nine lives…

…just lucky or is it because they have a bounce, agility, nose for adventure and exploration?

They always land on their feet

They can get to places that humans would never even consider.

Just for one day, imagine your life as a cat ~ jumping from one spot to another, no matter how tight or tricky; overcoming obstacles…

I’ll bet you would achieve far more than you ever thought possible!

#AtoZChallenge blog writing a to z april challenge meditation calm reiki positivity chakra healing

‘M’ is for Meditation ~ sharing for #AtoZChallenge

 

As you wander around my blog you will see many clues as to my

outlook on life.

From the bio in my ‘PR Friendly Blogger’ badge (in my sidebar on the right), to the #365daysofhappy linky that I take part in (see blog categories down the bottom right),

…and then to the affiliate links to chakra healing crystals and the therapeutic head massager (again, all in my right sidebar)

…and also to my #TheZenZing blog series which focusses on putting the zing back into your life – specifically the post on meditation (see blog categories down the bottom right).

All of these give a little insight into my approach to life:

positivity, calm, reiki, meditation, affirmation

Not necessarily in that order every time!

I hope that readers will feel the positivity come out of each post and I do try to give all my posts a positive slant…

I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I enjoy writing it :)

Please come again!

‘K’ is for Kudos #AtoZChallenge

Hello and welcome to my take on the #AtoZChallenge.  You can find out why I’m taking part in ‘From Alpha to Zulu and everything in between…’

Onward!

#AtoZChallenge blog writing a to z april challenge kudos acclaim praise best blogs parenting writing blog

‘K’ is for Kudos for #AtoZChallenge

According to wikipedia, kudos is from Ancient Greek and
means acclaim or praise.
With that in mind, I would like to give kudos to the following blogs.  These are just a handful of the ones that I regularly read and I feel they deserve a bit of a ‘spotlight’ moment :)  Read, digest, comment, share the blog love…
  • And Then The Fun Began ~ Sam writes honestly and candidly about everything to do with parenting.  I also love that she runs a linky that focuses on the less rose-tinted aspects of life called ‘The Truth About’…
  • DadBlogUK ~ John Adams writes about all things Stay At Home Dad (though strictly speaking, he’s a Work At Home Dad too).  His background in journalism makes for an informative, non-patronising and also entertaining read.
  • Lets Talk Mommy ~ Jenny continues to inspire me and hold me in total awe with her endless energy for all things blogging.  And I literally mean all things blogging.
  • Mummy Tries ~ Renee regularly posts about changing the cycle of negativity and dysfunctionality.  For me, she rocks because she also has boundless energy and the love for healthy living and her family always shines through in her posts.
  • Teacuptoria ~ The most recent blog that I stumbled upon and now follow regularly, Tor creates fantastic doodles for her blogposts, writes humourous and heartfelt poetry and is very open and honest to boot.
  • Verily Victoria Vocalises ~ Vicky Welton has an amazing following and it’s not difficult to see why.  She runs 2 successful linkys and they must be successful for a reason.  She definitely has my respect on the blogging front.
  • Writing Bubble ~ Maddy’s blog has a lovely feel to it, which is pleasing to the eye and is a joy to read, thanks to her style of writing.
There are many, many more blogs that I regularly dip into but
these ones stuck in my mind…
Kudos indeed :)
