Another Award

As you all know, blogging is a solitary thing. You write and read and hope others will appreciate your point of view and decided to follow you on your blogging journey.

It was a real treat to open my mailbox and see that I’ve received an award, not just any award, An Appreciated Follower Award from fellow blogger, Celia at Africa2Asia. Neat, huh? Well, I think so!

And now that I’ve gotten the award, I have a few things to do:

1. Thank the giver. (Thanks Celia!)

2. Pick 5 bloggers to pass the award on to. Let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

3.  Copy and paste the award

4.  Have faith that my followers will spread the love to other bloggers.

5.  Have bloggy fun!

Without further ado and in no particular order, here are the 5 people I’ll bestow the Appreciated Follower Award to. These are talented, eloquent, thoughtful, interesting people whose blogs are worth a read.

Thanks again, Celia!

More Technical Difficulties (originally published July 26th)

Mercury must be retrograde. I have no other explanation for the big and little things that have gone out of control in the last few weeks.

It started with my phone. A few days ago, it started shutting itself off. Then it began producing error messages that technical support has been unable to explain.

Yesterday morning, I woke to find an email from blogger friend, Rhonda, alerting me to a redirect error on my blog. With help from technical support, we fixed it but when I tried to reinstall my blog page, I inadvertently deleted all my posts, everything I’ve written since last year – nearly 300 posts.

My Blog is Here But My Content is Elsewhere

Thanks, Rhonda, for alerting me to the redirect error on blog. In fixing it, I inadvertently deleted my content so I have to have it restored. Not sure how long this will take.

Fixing my blogNot the kind of thing that I wanted to have happen this week.
Hope to be back up very soon,

My 7 Links Project

I’m very honored that Sherry has nominated me. It was difficult to select just six posts but I hope you’ll like the ones I chose.
