“First Post” …. or “Favourite Post”

Yikes! I am suddenly realising that I am very quickly having to learn to just post straight off the cuff with no pre writing, pre thinking, pre procrastinating or umming and arrring whatsoever….oh so very unlike me! But I guess if I want to try and keep up then so be it.  Beth had commented  that Jessica on her Imagination to Publication blog had a 2nd Game already in full swing for our Platform-Building Campaign, so I raced over to check it out. 

We have to post our first post or our favourite post….. umm yeah okay, I only started in Dec/Jan and it took over two weeks to get me going thanks to an internet friend who had to literally open a new blog herself so she could guide me through the steps and help me set up… boy did I make some BIG blooper mistakes back then. I am forever in her debt. So my hello page is not alot to write home about, but I will give you my second post, re posted here and a link to my favourite post or rather one I was so nervously proud of, an interview I did with a Childrens Author, Illustrator and self publisher living in Hawaii.

Here is my second post;-

As a young girl I loved reading, mostly novels.  The Enid Blyton  Series of the “Famous Five” was one of my favourites and I would read them over and over again. I had such a passion for horses to.  At the Easter show I loved winning the smaller prizes at the  two dollar stands. Throwing softballs at wooden blocks or popping small ping-pong balls in the mouths of the head-turning clowns on the side shows, because I would come away with a china horse to add to my growing collection at home (I still have them).   Therefore it was no surprise that I also loved “Black Beauty”  author  Anna Sewell.  One thing I do remember very well was a poem  that I happened upon (I don’t remember how), while I was in my early teens.  I loved its simplicity and I always carried it in the inside cover of my english text book at school.   It was called the Desiderata.

The beautiful piece was written by ,Max Ehrmann in the 1920′s, it became a popular prose for the make peace not war movement in the 1960′s. 

My proud moment post:-    is at this link here an interview with James Rumford :-   https://thepatientdreamer.wordpress.com/2011/05/20/author-interview-james-rumford/ 

As you can see I am still new at this, and only yesterday learnt how to do the linky thing, (instead of just pressing the auto button) thanks to a couple of online writing mates.   Enjoy!

  1. The great thing about blogging is that we can make mistakes and it’s not a huge deal. I think we’ve all made them as we’ve blundered our way into this world. 🙂

    So nice to meet you through the Campaign, and thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. For such a ‘new’ blogger you are doing great. There is a lot to learn and html can be intimidating too if you want to do those little tweaks 😉
