Last but not Least: Tribute to Indian Bloggers and Other Bloggers


"Whoa, I'm not done yet!" (Photo by Roberto Kaplan)

This is going to sound crazy, silly perhaps even, but I did not realize that today is the last day of the month for the Ultra Blog Challenge! No way! Weird! How can that be? Why did I think I had Wednesday as well? Time just snuck up on me. That's what happens when you write late at night I suppose! ;)

I had at least one if not two more posts I wanted to write for this month. In fact, one is in draft form entitled, Indian summer. Gosh, maybe I should retract the coffee/tea blog post, a prompt from WriteTribe but I already posted! Oh dear, what a dilemma! :(

Ok, I have an idea. In that case, I am posting two as I understand we can...right? ;) Well, now that it's the end of the month, who cares (anyway)?! ;)

A quote I wanted to share with all you, before you leave, from the beloved late actor, Robin Williams is the following: "No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world."

I think us writers know that, that "the pen is mightier than the sword" in changing lives, the world even. Isn't that what we want? I know I certainly do!

So I say: Write. Keep writing. Keep on writing. As you do, your life will change, and those of others around you.

My plan for October? Take it easy or rather easier, like posting when Spirit strikes me as I have been dealing with health challenges and pain for almost three weeks. Getting organized by catching up I hope on housework (like dishes) and papers.

I hope to 'see' a lot of you again soon, especially the regulars I follow and who follow me...love you all! And yeah, that includes all you Indie bloggers! ;) <3 ... I already feel sad to say goodbye, even temporarily to ALL of you, all around the world, as I feel a part of this blogging, this blogospheric community and tribe...it is a small world after all! ;) (heart shape as blogspot doesn't like my heart symbol unfortunately)

  6. I had been thinking of taking a break myself - sometimes you just have to take a break to recharge and to concentrate on your personal needs. You'll be a better blogger when you return. Hugz and hope your health improves. Alana

    1. Thanks Alana, and yes, that's exactly happened! ;) I started off with Ultimate Blog Challenge - Kathy Hadley was a part of that - and returned this month with Ultra Blog Challenge. I have more readers/commenters/blog improvement updates/awards, but most of all a wider network of blogging/blogosphere friends! <3 I'm sure I'll see you around in your lovely garden Alan! ;) <3

  7. I enjoy your blogs Elly. I understand writing daily can be challenging and I look forward your occasional blogs. Happy you are taking a break. I am moving to doing weekly blogs! The good news is - we can read your past blogs too!

    1. Yes, well it's kind of a shock to me too, in more ways than one! And yes, my body seems to strongly indicate that I need to slow down as I have been rather overzealous with this recent blog challenge. I will attempt as best I can to read some of my favourite bloggers and that includes you! ;) Thanks 'grandmum' for your words and support. :) <3
