My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

A whole Lotta Bloggin Going On

It's my ONE YEAR BLOGVERSARY tomorrow! So naturally I've been  reminiscing.
 
  

I started blogging because I saw the film Julia & Julia and I read writing magazines that inspired me to be a blogger. I read all the tips webpages on the do's and don't of writing blogs, which I tried to implement and  learned a few pointers that were not mentioned here, which I call Blog Etiquette.


My very first blog post In the Beginning was commented upon by one blogger: Amanda from Writing Allsorts (Hers was the very first blog I visited) Thank you Amanda.

My very first follower was Eliza from Just Twaddle who remains a follower to-date. Thank you Eliza.

While some of my early posts never got any comments, as I'm sure many of you have experienced when you started blogging, I gradually developed a faithful following, which has been an absolute delight. I am utterly staggered that I already have almost 500 followers, so I'm sure I'll be passing on the love with some giveaways in the not too distant future. This happens to be my 295th post!


I would like to say Thank YOU to you all because
without you my blog posts would drift about in cyberspace like some lonely, lost soul.

  • I love to receive comments with heart to carry around with me in my smile.
  • I love to join in the blogfests and challenges that my fellow bloggers design and to design and host my own.
  • I love receiving all those fabulous blog awards and other accolades that you so kindly present to me.
  • I love to share ideas and comments with you my fellow readers and writers.
  • I love designing and presenting my blog post pages for your delight and delectation.

    THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME SO WELCOME IN BLOGLAND

Do pass round the drinks and nibbles. The food and drink are self-replenishing. 

Do leave a COMMENT, since it’s bad manners to ignore the hostess especially as she is One tomorrow!

New Follower gatecrashers are most welcome!
