Exciting things are happening in the Blog World!

Oh has it been more than a month that I haven't posted anything? Geez. Time flies, doesn't it? Most especially if you are really busy. I have been busy indeed.  With all the running around being a full time Mum and wife, my hands are full.  But no complaints, I love looking after my lad and being with my husband. 

A lot of things are happening at the moment in the blogosphere!  How amazing it was when I found out that one of my friends has finally started blogging!  I am so excited for her.  Moving to a new country has made herself discover the creative part of her - she's into beads making and her beads jewelry are really yummy!  She's now a social worker-cum-jewelry maker!  Please do visit prettysaint's blog - Beads Unlimited...who knows, you might also rediscover your 'hidden' creative self after reading her first post! Or better yet, there might be an interpreneur in you waiting to be discovered!

Another blogger-friend, writer Talli Roland, has got some exciting news which I am excited about so I'm sharing it with you!  Her first novel, The Hating Game debuts in 2011.  On 01 December, Amazon is debuting the eBook version of this book and Talli is keen to take on Amazon and boost her eBook sales so please let's help her out!  Please visit her blog and see her post about Talli's Blogsplash!!!

I'd like to also thank those who take the time to read my posts and visit my blog, even if I have not been posting anything for a month! I now have 21 followers!!! Woo-hoo!!!! I know that like my blogger-friend Theresa who blogs on Substitute Teacher's Saga, I also have 'lurkers' out there who patiently wait for my new posts and really read them.  I am a lurker, too, sometimes, when I'm too busy to leave comments.  So, I'd like to say thank you to all of you.  It really means a lot to be read. 

Please don't think that I am permanently gone when I am not able to post anything. I am 100% around and lurking in cyber space.  I am reading your blog posts, too.  It's just that sometimes there aren't very exciting things to write about, hence, my silence.  In the last four weeks, I have been angry twice, cried twice, one of them about someone harassing me on Facebook...but I've learnt that when I'm angry or upset, I should not write about it or I'd regret the things that I write about.  So I've kept quiet and just let all the emotions go.  Other than that, I was laughing, running around keeping myself busy and just attending to normal family activities, really.  Now that my happy self is back...I am back on my blog as well, isn't that good?

I hope life is treating you all well.  Life is good, yes?

I'm glad we're friends on Facebook or I'd be sadder about such a long gap between posts. This way I get to know what you're up to even if you're not posting.

I'm so excited for Talli's BlogSplash. I hope she makes a splash.

Thanks for linking me! I love lurkers and commenters.

Len said...

Theresa - yes I'm glad we are friends on Facebook, too! Thanks for visiting!

Gina - Haha! Same here, I don't say anything if I don't have anything to say either. I've just been to your blog, too. I'll check those films out! :)

Ann said...

Hi Len, Thank you for visiting my blog and becoming a follower. I am delighted to have you. I am sorry to hear you have been harassed on facebook. I do hope that has been resolved. Looking forward to reading more of your posts.

Oh Len, I am so sorry to know someone was harassing you at Facebook, I am not so much a Facebook person even though I am there, I try to stay away from it if I could otherwise I will not be able to blog :) LOL, but I love both blogging and Facebook for different purposes. I always check here and re-read your old posts and I know one day you would be back again, and I am glad you are back again! Welcome back to blogging world Len. I will check your friend's site later. I am back now to bloggin in weekends only :( because of both work and school :(

Len said...

Hello Ann and Betchai - thanks for visiting my blog :) I think the problem with Facebook is that when one makes a comment, you can easily be misunderstood or misconstrued. That was what happened I guess. The only solution I thought was the best was to delete the person. I guess, in the process, I also said something that was hurtful to retaliate - so I don't blame the person completely.

Yes, I'm glad I'm blogging again, yay! :)

Hi Len, I would say that it's cathartic to write about things that upset you, but I find that it's better to use a private journal to help you wrestle with the whys and the wherefores. Any potential hurtful retaliations can then be mulled over without sending them out to whoever they were intended for. ;O)
Thanks for sharing and following my blog, too.

Len said...

Madeleine - thanks for visiting too. Yes I've started using a private journal again, I agree that's a lot better than writing feelings out on my blog. Thanks for the visit and for following too. It's great to have you here :)

I've just popped over to say a big howdy hello and hi! Your blog is very pretty - I do like the wallpaper (I think that's the term! The flowery background!). Lovely!

Anyway - I'm sorry to read about your facebook experience and I hope that that's now in the past! It's good to cry and vent too of course - you must always embrace all your emotions no matter how painful and raw because that's what makes you you!

I'm happy to read that you have great ups to balance out the tears!! These beautiful moments make living life worthwhile!

Stay strong and healthy Len! It's fab meeting you here blogworld!

p.s Yay for Talli!! She's fab too!!!

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday! Take care
