5. Awards: A Love Note

1. I know I have thanked you to death already in all the acceptances. This week there were 2! Very Special Awards to Me: The Inspiring Blogger Award and Wonderful Team Readership Award in that order.  Thank you so much! Few things are sweeter than being recognized by your peers. For as long as I get them and I can reasonably respond regardless of the

Very Inspiring Blogger AwardWonderful Team Member Readership Award

timeline, I will. I read all the time, and I genuinely have no problem saying ‘thanks” or sharing! Art is so beautiful in that there doesn’t have to be competition 🙂

2. If I give you an award, please know that the most important thing is that you know how I feel about it. You’ve already given, and you don’t owe anything. Someone will circulate them lol. That’s all!!

3. I am aware that some do not answer them because they are busy and their blogs have become so popular they can no longer accept them. We used to jokingly call those a “high-class” problem to have!  I think that’s marvelous and will not hold it against you, so don’t mention it! In fact, I must admit that I do not check to see afterwards. I have no idea

4. Otherwise, I do include the instructions in the original post, so please feel free to refer back to them as you go about making someone else’s day!

There’s plenty to enjoy in every step of the journey. I will try not to forget to enjoy it. I will do all for as long as I can because I like interacting with you. I read a lot. I like reading, and I believe that every interaction counts.

About the New Decorum Here

Take a click around. I know that this was a sudden change, but I got tired of not being able to find posts. Hopefully this will help because there are a looot more than I thought. Seems like just yesterday, I posted a celebration of 50 of them! But now there are upwards of 70. Some of them are by others. So far so fine, but it requires a lot more pics. I’m not a big pic person, and I don’t have any professional ones, so be kind.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • “Featured”: This thing calls all the posts across the top, “Featured”. On this blog, I’ve been calling Reblogs and Guest Posts “Featured” because I didn’t know what else to call them, but until I can change them all, unless otherwise specified, I wrote them.

3 Things my 3 *PICKS* Reminded me about Getting Picked

3 Things My 3 *PICKS* Reminded Me About Getting Picked

As promised, these are my picks from last week. I did not have any picks this week because of the upcoming New Music Artist Poetry Challenge – Schooled. I will be reviewing works of art, music, and photos, so don’t forget to submit something. Here are my picks from last week and the reasons why if you didn’t find them in Interact last Sunday. As if sharing the love of their work weren’t enough, there was so much more to learn about “winning” or getting picked.

Speaking of twitter. I wrote a poem just for twitter and just before lunch. Maybe I should share it. Having shared the first poem here, the first Haiku here, and, I felt the need to share my first twitter poem too. Enjoy!

Interact with Me Tonight 8 PM CST

I’m here Honey c’mon in, and grab a sweet tea. What do you think about the question?

*don’t forget to hit refresh to see the updates as you’re following along

Tonight’s Question …is for artists of all disciplines

Q. Does your art imitate life, or is does life seem to be imitating art? For the 3rd time in a week, I’ve written a seemingly random work only to learn that a public and related thing had just occurred. Has that ever happened to you? Why do you think so?

I had such a difficult time last week that I decided to start early! And I am so glad I did that. This week was absolutely amazing because I found so much great work. I have been sharing it everywhere. I’ve been inundated with inspiration, so I’m tinkering with another little blog where I can put the stuff that doesn’t fit neatly here (called I Love Mekanism – More Love, for now).

Inside Wants Out

Happy Sunday! I’m personally inviting you to interact with me tonight as you wind down this evening. Here, I’ll be posting a chat thread to update you on my progress for last week’s challenge and posting Part 2 of that challenge. I will also talk about my adventures in preparing for Challenge to Act Out. You are encouraged to post your Level points, questions, or any support for either challenge.

 

Look out for the update on the newest I found interpreted from Mira’s winning song, Daughters by John Mayer from last week. If there’s time and inspiration, I have also challenged myself to actually write a short poem 5, so there’s a chance for that too.

 

See ya soon, and thank you so much for reading.
