Hello readers. I will be taking a break from the blogging world to re-energize. See you soon!
Well, it’s finally here.
I’ve gotten a lot of questions about our trip to ‘paradise’. I’ve managed to put together information on Palawan for those who’d like to visit this beautiful area of the Philippines. It’s a condensed list of all the resources that I found to be the most useful in planning our trip. Go to > Palawan Travel Guide.
While I appreciate the recognition I appreciate what it takes for every single blogger to post their ideas and thoughts ‘online’ for the world to see. It takes courage to expose yourself to possible criticism and scrutiny. But with that aspect is also the possibility to make someone think, laugh, wonder or feel with your words or pictures. This makes blogging truly fulfilling.
So I thank Ioanna Aggelidaki of ’life portoFolio‘ for taking the time to nominate me for this award and make me think why I do what I do. If you’d like to know a little about me just scroll down to the bottom to the ‘Versatile Blogger Award.’
Here’s a few inspiring sites to check out:
Now I am officially overwhelmed!
This is the third month this blog’s been nominated and twice at that! I’ve been bitten by the CanadianTravelBugs again. They’ve passed on the “Beautiful Blogger Award” for my blog ‘The Great Escape.’ My second nomination is for “The Versatile Blogger Award” and comes from pinay e-motion. Again, I am extremely grateful.
I know everyone works hard and puts time into their blog. If there’s anything I learned from my very early days as an artist it’s that in order to grow we need to keep our mind open to different perspectives. Sometimes I get stuck on what to write about and I get too focused on a point of view. Sometimes I don’t know what to write and the words just don’t come. That’s when writing just isn’t fun.
Sometimes we need a little change of pace from the regular stuff we’ve been writing so I’ve been expanding my mind at these ‘alternative thinking’ blogs.
Here we go again! I’ve been blessed with another nomination. This time by the CanadianTravelBugs. They’ve passed on the Kreativ Blogger Award to my blog ‘The Great Escape.’ Again I am so grateful and thank them and everyone else for exploring this blog.
Here’s a few more blogs that I have recently discovered.
I’ve blogged for two months now and I have to say the experience has turned out to be much more fulfilling than I thought it would ever be. When I got my first ‘like’ I felt elated. When I got my first comment I was ecstatic. The greatest satisfaction came when Jennifer Avventura of “My Sardinian Life” nominated my blog for a “Versitile Blogger” award. I thought to myself, “Wow, people are reading my blog and getting something out of it.”
There’s a movie (directed by Sean Penn) and a book called “Into the Wild.” It’s inspired by a true story about a top student, Christopher McCandles, who abandons his possessions and hitchhikes to Alaska to live in the wilderness.
During his path of self-discovery Christopher encounters different characters who influence and shape his life. Eventually his lone journey ends with the tragic realization that “Happiness is only real when shared.” It’s one of my favourite quotes from the movie.
I think the blogging community is about sharing and being inspired through photos, stories and ideas. It provides a way for us to experience life through other people’s eyes and can sometimes give us a different perspective on things. I’m new to the blogging world so I haven’t had a chance to discover that many blogs but here’s some that I’m enjoying:
Here’s a few things about me I’d like to share.
I am really grateful I’m part of the blogging community. I look forward to sharing my experiences and finding out more about my fellow bloggers.
