We meet again on the blogosphere at Rosary and Redsox… blogging my memoir. I am so grateful people recognize my work. They nominated me as the title of the post says Blogging Award The Black Cat, Blue Sea Title. I love the name and accept it in the spirit of my blogging humility. Also, I live near the ocean (sea) if you want to call it that, and I love cats. he he he …
I just want to say the visits, follow, comments are the best also to show that a person blog is special. Grateful to you all.
Thank you for the blogging award I am thankful and humbled. Blessings to https://paintdigi.wordpress.com/a-propos/ I would like to reach out to you all my friends to visit his site. He has wonderful photography ( well actually digital painting) of Morocco and other subjects and prose.
Expressing gratitude to the nominator mentioned above. Anyone that is nominated here or that you nominate need to know they deserve it. I feel also as my nominator mentioned above in his thank you letter… words related to his … this award is given in the spirit that they do not have to meet requirements …that they must have hundreds of followers and likes. I feel just good ode respectable blogging buddies. 🙂 he he he
Okay with all that said:
Anybody nominated can nominate up to seven other bloggers.
Anybody nominated answers three questions.
The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions.
Questions to me are:
What changes your blog, in your life? If I understand the question correctly. I have been writing my memoir on note paper, napkins, digital recording. Needed to publish it… a friend said to me get a blog… so I did and here I am. It has changed my life in good ways. I will admit it is not easy to write a memoir, but it is worth it. People have commented on my posts that it does help them. That is why I am here. Spread the faith and share each others stories. Speaking of sharing the faith and stories my blog is about that. Center of my blog is its theme Faith. Love to share that and understand the connection of spirituality with all.
Topics do you look for in other people’s blogs? Well, I have lots of interests and I like to check the people who not only check me out and beyond with moving around here and there to so many good blogs I love to visit. They all have great topics of interests. It will be hard for me to pick only 7 nominees.
Three cities you want to visit someday? Would like to visit Rome (well actually Naples and Parma, Italy.) My father’s side from the outskirts of Naples and my mother’s side from Parma. Hopefully visit Paris, France as well. And more but you asked for 3 :).
MY NOMINEES ARE:
My questions to the nominees are:
How does your blog change your life? Or vise versa?
Topics you look for in other people’s blogs?
What do like about your blog?
I would love to hear from you all. Follow, like, comment… I love it. Thank you. Hope to see you all soon in the blogosphere. Enjoy peace be with you all.
We need to band together and pray for the election coming up in November 2016. I will do my absent tee ballot. Due to my home bound situation. At least I am going to be doing my civic duty. Lets all go for it…
today I pray for peace in hope that tomorrow I won’t have to
A wall hanging I have.
Here are some prayers I am saying at this point and others. Lots of prayers… I do my rosary everyday and offer the prayers up to our God. Spiritually we need to connect and be as peaceful as we can be.
If you are not a Christian you may say e i… “May God bring relief …”May the light of God, which comes to enlighten every human being, shine forth … ” No other Christian can tell that I minimized Jesus at all. Unity is what to have with one another. My belief is that He would too… That will help with the election, too. Let us have peace. I feel acceptance is the key to life. No harm done on my blog ever to Jesus. Right blogging buddies? Smiles and peace… no phony stuff here … True caring and sharing… In humility saying this…
I want to say that we need to have compassion for one another we all have a struggle what ever it may be. Let us accept one another and join together for an end to violence, strife, injustice … the way civil minded people can do. In a peaceful just way. Yes! Anyone says Amen to that… any thing to add please do in the comments always love comments, likes etc…
Found this article from a facebook group I joined.
Look it President Bush and I have something in common we both contacted Lyme Disease. Lyme disease does not discriminate those ticks will bite whomever and whenever they want. The article does not talk much of symptoms or treatment, but good to follow up on to see how President Bush is.
Table contents (TOC), memoir is my life stories from my other blog http://rosaryandredsox.com/ . Would love for you to join me there too. I have great stories to share. I like to make my post interactive. Would you all join me.
I first wrote this on my beyond cranium blog. The reason why this theme is broken. This is what I wrote over there….My rosaryandresox.com blog theme is broken and needs fixing. I am in the mist of getting a new theme and it will be wonderful over there. That alone is a lot of work, but looking to having fun with it. It will be a learning experience. My likes and comment section are all messed up. The subscribers are not getting my emails for the new posts I have published. Oh pooh I could not reblog it here gave an error message. So I am trying to post I hope it works out and you all follow, like, comments as you would like to.
Oh pooh need to work in back of the blog… back of the scene stuff is not my strongest suit. It must be done. ugh long sigh. Sure you all can teach me something. Maybe in the long run I can teach you something.
Need some help, probably need to pay for it. Any suggestions? I know sometimes we need to spend money to go forward in life. Yes, I am praying about it. Need my head on straight not give into the stress of this. I love blogging , but need to go through believing it will all work out. Need to do some work too of course.
So, I thought I would reach out here and go forward with sharing and spreading my story. I need to do that my readers are important to me always.
Turning points at chapters
This is a work in progress (WIP)
As I mentioned this is a work in progress (WIP). It will be updated several times for all to benefit. The table contents has some links to posts I have written (maybe linked other places also) and more to come for your enjoyment in time.
I will publish chapbooks as I have said before and look forward to that being done. Moving along slowly but surely and thank you all for your patience, encouragement… I love blogging. I know for me it is tough with all that is going on with me… but it is a true blessing. What I am saying to have you all here coaching me on.
I feel that publishing my poetry maybe a great idea alone in a chapbook. What do you all think? Please let me know. I really appreciate the help. Oh, yes I am in the market for an editor and or coach… and such. Know of any? I do know a few but need to keep options open. Maybe someone here can help me. Just asking.
Just to mention Turning Points are the times in your life you change something or something happens, meet someone that impacts you, have anepiphany, graduation, illness, faith restored or reversed, change jobs, marry, divorced, have children… moved… and so forth I am sure you understand.
Also, I am using memory lists. This is a great way to write your memoir. I like the simplicity of it and how he Denis Ledoux explains how to them. Some may mesh together for you. They do for me. But, working it out will organize and structure the sequence out. When you write a book one of the best things to do is not stress out about the sequence until almost done. Meaning you may write the last chapter first, first chapter last then the middle somewhere. Then sort out all later. That is why my blog posts are not in any order. The table or contents will help with that. You will see as I go on.
Need to ask when reading the table would you make a note to me if you want to hear more about that subject. Then I will see if that can me done, but it will help me focus I feel. See what comes up for people and what I can do. Sound fair. Yes! Then will go from there. Make my site more interactive. I know it is my life story but we can all share. It will cheer me on too 🙂 . And, you all on 🙂 blessings
Thank you for the visit. That may sound strange I need your help to help you. I will explain.
See I moved from the free WordPress site over to hosting. I felt I needed to this for a few reasons.
– To name just a couple.
Plugins needed to expand my site to customize it. To have writings feel as they have a home that is not the correct word my aphasia is cutting my word off. Have a question please ask below and if comments section is not there you can go to contact page and get in touch with and let me know I would appreciate that. That would help me. 🙂
Here is where I need your help. Let me know if you see anything odd with my site. Ugh long sigh! I did lose my likes … so, when and if you can please like me again. I have a big smile on my face just thinking how wonderful you all are. But, I know you all are busy. Only do what you can.
Also, not sure if I lost any of you in the process, so please sign up to subscribe to my blog to get post updates etc.… located in right side bar and it may be located at bottom of this post.
In the mist of getting a new theme also… this may make my site better. I believe it will.
That will be happening at the end of the week. Your help is greatly appreciated. When you can.
Oh, do any of you know of a good theme? I did pick one out, but you all may know of something better.
I hope this post finds you well.
Had my table of contents ready to post, but it crashed and I lost it. Oh pooh now on to composing a new one. Cheers and jeers about that. But the Table will be great for you to see and yes for me to do. Which will always be in progress…before the book is published a work in progress (WIP).
Sure you understand. Sometimes progress is needed even though it may not always make sense. In the long run it will work out. I hope so. God willing. A friend of mine use to always say that. I would think at the time she say it…I would think I hope so… but I have to do a lot of work in the meantime too… He God is not going to go poof here it is. So, I thought I would share it with all of you.
I am back. Thank you all for your patience. Slowly but surely coming through; you all are always in my prayers.
As you all know my faith is sustaining me. I need to have it. It it is a wonderful gift. Growing (I hope) and sharing it I must.
God’s peace be with you always. Taking it slowly, but I am coming around. I will be visiting your wonderful people sites more often.
A little update:
What I am trying to put together for your enjoyment is a table of contents. I know you will love.
What it will be are my turning points in my life since my strokes started happening. I know you all have heard and read a lot of them. But what I hope to do is organize them so I can publish in book form. Putting together a chapbook for you as a giveaway, so that I know you will enjoy.
Encourage you to sign up when the sign up is available. It will be poems and prose none of my blogging posts, but some information from maybe one or two of them. The finality will be a lot of editing and embellishments. You will love.
Have been living for the moment to finally have my final book published, but it is good to do smaller books until that time. I know you will enjoy them.
Looking forward to hearing for you all on what you think for this post and any other post I have on this site.
Oh, I have changed my blog around and lost the like buttons. So when you can like me again and sign up for following me. I appreciate i
I begin and end each day saying “Thank you Lord for life.”
