I have had so much fun co-administering our Crafty Threads 'n' Yarns board that I decided to start another one. This one is Bloggers' Paradise and is for personal bloggers (as opposed to business bloggers) to help each other out with all aspects of blogging. Blogging is in itself a great way of passing on information but this board will provide a central place for bloggers and future bloggers to come to to find out how to set one up, find out what the buzzwords mean, share scripts and maybe even dream up new ways of using blogs.
It is very much in its infancy at the moment, but if you join now you will have a chance to influence the direction it takes. I am very excited about it :-) and hope some of you dear readers will be too.
Don't worry - it is not my intention to take over the world - I don't have time for that, but I have often seen questions about blogging on other boards and thought a board devoted to blogging would be a good thing!
Charlie is such a smart little dog - I know I may have mentioned this before but today she was very clever indeed. I was sitting typing away at the table and Charlie was demanding attention by standing up with her paws on my leg. Usually this means she wants to play and if I try to stroke her she backs away to get me to chase her. Today though she wanted me to lift her up on my lap. At first I thought how sweet and affectionate she was being but after a while I realised what was going on. Charlie likes to sit in the sun and in the morning it shines through our bay window and makes a little diamond shaped warm area that gradually moves across the room. Guess where the sunny spot was at the time Charlie wanted to sit on my lap - that's right, right where my lap was!
This picture was taken in August and is next to the chair I was sitting on (that is not me in this picture however). The sun is lower in the sky now so it shines a bit further over.
Cheryl was having fun with an online translator and invited her readers to try it for ourselves. I translated the paragraph about Charlie above into French, then German, then back to English and it came up with this
How funny - please give it a try with one of your posts for much merriment!
