‘U’ is for ‘Under’ and Over

A to Z Challenge blog under and over

Truth be told, I’m not one to get hung up on stats.  But truth be told, when I got to the 100 followers mark during the #AtoZChallenge, I was pleased as punch.

Truth be told, it would have taken a lot longer to reach that satisfying milestone had I not participated.  In my world, the virtual world, it is an immense achievement.

I started April under 100 followers and I am ending April (unless I annoy a few people!) over 100 followers.

Thank you!

‘T’ is for ‘The’

A to Z Challenge blog the

Have you ever tried to write something or say something without using ‘the’?

It’s a word very commonly used.  As I write this post, I’m finding it incredibly challenging yet satisfying to write without using that word. (Nearly!)

To be fair though, it’s perhaps my shortest post and piece of writing ever!

Just a bit of #AtoZ fun peeps!

‘S’ is for ‘Share’

a to z challenge blog share

How about today, instead of ‘just’ liking, reading and commenting, you could ‘share’ the blogs you read and enjoy too?

Go on, share the blog love…  starting with this one (winks!)

Why not come back to my blog on Saturday when I will be sharing my best reads of the week with my weekly round-up….

It’d be great to see you!

It’s Time for a Treat…

virtually all sorts theme game treat

It’s Time for a Treat…

Ever stopped to think

Of your day to day life,

As a daughter, sister, mum

And maybe a wife?

~

We wear all the hats

As we juggle the balls.

We come up trumps

When the ace card falls.

~

My house of cards has

The odd shuffle, it’s true.

The King and the Queen,

The Joker’s there too.

~

But look through the keyhole

Any day and you’ll see

We’re full with love and laughter,

The best things are free.

~

With the usual humdrum

Of day to day living,

Don’t forget about ‘you’

Cos you’re constantly ‘giving’…

~

Giving time and attention,

It’s not that you mind,

But it’s time for a treat,

Leave your ‘hats’ behind…

~

I’m linking up with #TheThemeGame of ‘treat’ at The Reading Residence and Redpeffer with this post.

Virtually All Sorts of blogs in the weekly round-up

virtually all sorts weekly blog round-up

It’s time to mention a few blogs that I’ve enjoyed reading in the past week or so…  I hope you like them as much as I do:

Rarasaur ~ Justification and commitment.  Definitely worth a mention… Just because of just ’cause’?

Title by Jaq ~ Inkling.  So much atmosphere in just a few words.  It left me wanting to read more…

Msmousecleanshouse ~ K is for The Kite Runner.  Now higher up on my reading list!

‘Q’ is for ‘quill’

a to z challenge blog quill

How do you write?

With a notepad and pen or pencil?

Straight onto the screen?

I write by making notes on a wad of paper.  It feels more raw, more creative.  Perhaps using a quill and inkwell felt more ‘raw’ for writers of yesteryear.

There’s no doubt that a quill has a certain romantic feel about it that, to me, adds to the creative process.  One day though, instead of owning a quill, I will own a beautiful fountain pen instead.

‘P’ is for ‘paper’

a to z challenge blog paper

As regular readers will know (and a glance through my more recent archives will show), I have been getting the ‘paper’ bug lately with #BringBackPaper.  Yes, I have sent a few notes and rhymes off to penpals in an attempt to brighten up their day and their letterbox.  And maybe even the postie with the decorated envelopes!

I’m not adverse to technology.  Far from it.  I mean, I’ve written 3 eBooks with more in the pipeline!  A day doesn’t feel complete without blogging, tweeting, liking and sharing.  However, I like to receive nice post and decided to send some too.

What I love about paper is that you don’t have to spend a fortune to make it pretty.  A few doodles, maybe a bit of washi tape, or even simply an artistically written address can really jazz up an envelope!  Let’s face it, we could all do with sunshine in with those bills and junk mail…

I Rhyme on Occasion

I rhyme on occasion when I write for my blog.

The words ebb and flow through creative fog.

The ideas, the rhythm make it all come together

Come rain or shine, through all blogging weather.

So welcome my friend, come in and join me.

You’re just in time, the kettle’s on for a nice cup of tea…

‘N’ is for ‘nifty’

 

a to z challenge n nifty gadget

A nifty little gadget in the blogging world that I use 2-3 times a week is the linky.

It’s a fantastic way of not only meeting new bloggers, it also gets your blog ‘out there’ and introduces some structure to your blogging week by committing you and your blog to posting to that linky.

The linkys that I regularly take part in on VirtuallyAllSorts are:

#TheThemeGame with Jocelyn at The Reading Residence and Iona at Redpeffer

#WordoftheWeek another one with The  Reading Residence

And once this challenge is complete, I plan to post to #FridayFictioneers with Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog ‘Addicted to Purple’.
