Will I Love Your Blog?

I'd like to accept this I Love Your Blog award from Kristine of WenchdGrafix Designs who has labeled me her Guilty Pleasure in the blog reading world. You can read what she had to say about me here (right down the bottom of her post).

Kristine also combined another award - with the same set of rules - so, technically I received two awards. I've just chosen the one with the best graphic to display here.

The rules for both these awards say that if you receive it you're supposed to link to the blog of the person who gave it to you (done that) and choose seven more recipients whose blogs you love... oh dear... not so much a guilty pleasure any more, just guilty.

I have to admit I don't read a lot of personal/individual blogs regularly. At least not regularly enough to say 'I love your blog'.

Of the blogs I do read, the majority are boring technology, business, art news and social networking news written by collaborations of people who like to think their opinion actually matters more than cracking a smile every once in a while (hey that rhymes). Pseudo journalists and straight faced niche experts who've all had humor lobotomies.

So remember, back at the start I said, "I'd like to accept this I Love Your Blog award..." well... I'd like to but I've yet to find one guilty pleasure blog... how am I supposed to find seven?

I know quite a few people visit my blog. If you're reading this then I guess you're one of them. Do you have a blog of your own? Do you think it's something I would enjoy? Will it keep me coming back day after day? Will I subscribe to your RSS Feed?

In short, will I love your blog?

Leave your blog link in the comments below and make a comment telling me why you think I'd like your blog. Here's a tip, I may be an artist but I'm not that fascinated by 'work in progress' art blogs. I'm a thinker and I like ideas. The more imaginative the better.

No doubt I'm going to be underwhelmed with the response but, if you'd like me to mention your blog in a special post explaining why I think others will love your blog, not much will happen if you don't leave a comment.

I want to love your blog... not in an icky way either... I promise I won't read in my underwear... stop thinking about me in my underwear... I'm not that kind of guilty pleasure!

  1. Hello. Well, I thought you might like my blog. Don't be put off by the name, I do more then crochet. I am an avid photography buff and comedy-seeker-outter. I put things on my blog that make me laugh or amaze me. So, take a gander.

  2. Hey Nicole, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I did take a look at your blog and enjoyed some of your photos etc.

    Not enough words for me though. I like to hear about the behind the scenes stuff on photos etc. I'm the same with art. If I really like something I want to know more about it than just what I see.

    Good blog though.

Guest Post: MY SOOPER DOOPER NEW CONSERVATORY/ART STUDIO!

Jo's new Art Studio/Conservatory. Today's guest post is by Artist, Writer, and Mental Health Advocate, Jo B Creative who writes for her blog,  Creating My Oddessey . Y ou should see our (almost) brand new conservatory, half of which is my art studio. 'Lucky me!' I think to myself. Not every creative bod can boast that. It's HUGE! Like a giant greenhouse. We first moved to our pleasant cul-de-sac house - great for raising kids - when our son, who's on the cusp of thirty-one, was four. One of the main reasons that we wanted it was that, apart from its location on the fringes of a historic market town in rural Hampshire, UK, it had a sizable conservatory looking onto the back garden. It was brown wood framed and had a corrugated transparent roof sloping down from downstairs ceiling height. On the face of it, it doesn't sound that glamourous, but we loved the idea of a conservatory. Luxury! I even liked the red brick walls which it was built against -

Batman v Superman: Dawn of the Onesie #Sadbatman

Although we haven't seen it clearly for sure, film director Kevin Smith (who has seen a well lit, color photo of the suit), says Ben Affleck's Bat costume is pretty much identical to the Frank Miller, Dark Knight Returns suit. If that's true then Ben's world weary Batman will be going 'old school' and be wearing his underpants on the outside (as he should).

Course Review: YouTube for Bosses - Sunny Lenarduzzi. How to grow your YouTube Channel into a Business

YouTube for Bosses Free Mug...  or the most expensive mug  you'll ever buy? I've been subscribed to  Sunny Lenarduzzi's YouTube channel for a few years, learning a lot on how to grow a following on sites like YouTube and Instagram. If you have any interest in growing your own YouTube channel I'd highly recommend watching some of Sunny's videos on the subject.  Definitely explore her 2019 back catalogue for the most useful information. This year she's been on a bit of a 'being authentic' pivot that, personally, doesn't resonate all that much with me (but probably speaks volumes to anyone with similar experience). I'm not saying she shouldn't or isn't being authentic, it's just I didn't subscribe to hear stories about her life journey. To get back on track, Sunny runs a successful online business with her flagship course, YouTube for Bosses , a stand alone paid course that does act as something of a gateway to further paid (but opt

One Week on Light n' Easy #lightneasy

My partner, Enigma, and I recently decided to try Light n' Easy to replace all our daily meals in an effort to eat healthier (and not have to think at all about cooking evening meals). Enigma is about to embark on her third week of their full menu but I caved after one and opted just to get the dinners.

Book Review: Time Rich by Steve Glaveski

I remember listening to a podcast interview with Steve Glaveski where he talked about 'being in flow' and how artists and other creative people struggled with time management because they needed to be in the 'flow state' to do their most creative work. The 'flow state' is basically being on such a roll with whatever you're doing you don't want to stop just because your diary says you've scheduled something else for the next 30 minutes. I don't remember too much from the podcast but it really resonated with me so much that I immediately ordered a copy of Steve's second book, Time Rich - Do Your Best Work, Live Your Best Life  that he was promoting at the time. To cut straight to the bottom line, probably one of the most disappointing books I've read in quite a while. Which is not to say the content is bad, it's just the title and blurb information, in my opinion, completely misrepresents what the book is about. There is a strong sugges

Movie Review: Long Story Short (2021) *Very minor spoilers*

Written and directed by Australian actor, Josh Lawson, Long Story Short is a fun rom-com about putting things off until the 'right' time and maybe how that isn't a good strategy for life. Rafe Spall plays Teddy, a guy who has a reputation for putting things off, and waiting too long to act on important decisions like setting a wedding date to his fiance, Leanne (Zahra Newman). It's not that he's lazy or unmotivated, it's just that he likes to wait for the perfect time to act. One day while visiting his father's grave he meets a strange woman (Noni Hazlehurst) who promises to give him a gift on his wedding day. Teddy doesn't think too much of it but then, on his wedding day, he jumps forward a year in time, where Leanne is celebrating their one year wedding anniversary. Teddy barely has time to comprehend his predicament before he flashes forward to their two year anniversary. Long Story Short inevitably will be compared to the Bill Murray movie, Ground

How to Transfer Any Line Art to Your Griptape - Easy Skateboard Griptape Art Tutorial

Dog Star Griptape Art by TET Griptape art is once again gaining popularity amongst modern skateboarders. For those of us who have tried to create our own griptape art, using paint pens, you'll know reproducing your design onto the grip, without making any mistakes is incredibly challenging. Mostly because you just have to go for it and draw the design freehand, with paint pens, directly onto the griptape. You can make the odd mistake here or there but if you get the proportions of the design completely wrong, it can be very difficult to fix. Often you just have to live with the mistake. To address the problem I've come up with an easy way anyone can transfer a line art design to their griptape, removing almost all the anxiety of getting the proportions wrong. In fact, you could do this with any line art design, even if you have no drawing skill at all. Watch the video below to see my technique in action and/or skip past the video where I highlight the basic steps to get your de
