  1. Thank you for following me; I’m now following you. Well, you seem to be doing all the right things to make yourself known. There’s just one question. Why are you not keen on your work being reblogged? This is one sure way of reaching a wider audience and I’ve found it extremely useful.


  2. I just like people to ask first that’s all. I always ask before doing so with other people’s work. I just like to know the space it is being reblogged into.


  3. That’s okay, it’s also because if I have a guest I interview or reblog on my blog I don’t want to just pass that permission on to all in sundry either. I love most of the blogs of people who follow my blog, but there are sometimes some which are mainly marketing who come and go pretty quickly.


  4. I found your blog on WP reader – started following it – then you commented on my blog and here I am. I promise I will have a more careful read later! Have a great day!


  5. You defiantly seem fun. I am new, just figuring out this blog thing. I saw your smiley face and thought I would like to fallow you. Read your literary work which confirmed it. I to love to write. Especially short stories and poems. This made me feel connected. So, that was the end of that. …I followed. 😊

  6. Hmm yes, I hope I am a fun and humourous person – love life and nature and writing, well you know what’s on the blog and more. Thanks for dropping by.


Would love to know what you think
