School days reminiscences of Miriam Hurdle

Norah Colvin

Welcome to the School Days, Reminiscences series in which my champion bloggers and authors share reminiscences of their school days. It’s my small way of thanking them for their support and of letting you know about their services and publications.

Miriam Hurdle, poet

This week, I am pleased to introduce Miriam Hurdle, poet, blogger, flash fiction writer, photographer, ex-teacher and educator. She blogs at the Showers of Blessings and recently published a book of poems entitled Songs of Heartstrings: Poems of Gratitude and Beatitude.

I first met Miriam at the Carrot Ranch when she rode up and joined in the flash fiction challenges. Since then, we’ve met up in many different places around the blogosphere. Considering she’s been blogging even longer than I; I’m surprised we hadn’t met earlier. We share our thoughts on education and grandchildren, and in fact on anything to do with making our journeys through life the…

Exposing your work, on #LisaBurtonRadio

You don’t want to miss this post. A wonderful conversation among the super bloggers who devote their time and energy to help and support the authors.

Entertaining Stories

Lisa Burton

Hi, all, and welcome to another edition of Lisa Burton Radio. This week is a special edition, because it’s geared to all you authors out there. It might give some good ideas to bloggers who want to host guests too.

Today, I’ve collected a group of power bloggers who host authors on their sites. This gives an author a way to reach a larger audience than they might if they were simply posting about date-night or something. This means when you have a new book to promote, or maybe to give an older title a secondary push.

We’re going to start by addressing the three-hundred-pound gorilla in the room, and I mean that literally. Chris The Storyreading Ape, hosts one of the largest author blogs around. “Did you get my fruit basket, Chris?”

“Yes I did thanks, Lisa – very thoughtful of you to use edible leaves to weave the…

Let’s talk…

Sue invite you to be her guest on her 17,000 follower blog. Hop over to read about it. 🙂

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

“The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things…”

At 17.00 every day, I like to publish a guest post, inviting other writers, bloggers, photographers and artists to share their work and their stories. The Daily Echo Blog has just topped the 17,000 followers mark… not a huge readership by global standards, but not a number to be sneezed at either, especially if you have something to share.

Why not be my guest? Read on to find out how…

Have you have had a strange experience or encounter that you would like to share? I am not looking for sensationalism or fictional tales… but in light of the response to recent posts, I think it would be both useful and reassuring to others to realise that none of us are alone in these strange encounters and experiences and perhaps we can open discussion on what they may…

3010 Followers, Thank You!

Before midnight last night, my followers count turned 3000. I was too tired to let you know and give you my big HUGS and THANK YOU. Miriam

Even though I registered my WordPress account in July 2011, I didn’t get into blogging until July 29, 2016. Better later than never!

WordPress sent me the 6-year congrats. But I consider my blogging as ONE YEAR and eight days old.

Within this one year+, the number of posts I have made: 589

Wow! 500 Posts

Wow! I can’t believe it. I have made 500 posts! I started blogging in July 2011. But from July 2011 to September 2014, I did 12 posts and stopped blogging. I came back on July 29, 2016 and have been blogging almost everyday.

500 posts

Basically, I did 500 posts in less than one years. I have many interests – taking photos, writing, gardening, traveling, learning new things such as watercolor and poetry. Blogging is a good place for me to share my experiences with you. I’m grateful that I have made so many friends in this blogging community. Thank you for reading, like, and comment on my posts! You encouragement keep me going!

Thank you
