I have been nominated for the Encouraging Thunder award by my good friend, Alf over at
Thankyou my man, I am truly honoured and appreciative.
Why do I blog?
The primary reason is obvious and I make no bones about it, to share my poetry and promote my books.
But since staring to build up a network of friends and fellow bloggers, it has become more than that. I now actively enjoy exploring the content on other bloggers blogs. There are so many great poets, artists, photographers, writers and bloggers of so many varieties that I can easily spend hours each day just strolling though them all.
Also, perhaps a little self indulgent but nevertheless, the one thing and perhaps the most important thing I have discovered is how many people there are ‘out there’ who go through similar daily struggles with health issues etc., as I do and how supportive we can all be to each other. I am not alone… there are people I can relate to and vice versa. They say its goo to talk and it certainly is.
An unexpected response to a lot of my poems is that people comment on how they can relate to them in various ways or they are touched in some way by them and best of all… they make them smile!
Keep Smiling 😊
