49 Days In 1988: Week 43 – No Time For Love

I was thrilled to be a guest on Hugh’s blog today to reminisce about old songs and memories! In 1981, I lived in the UK and this song still resonates as it transports me back to a time I’ll never forget! ❤ Please stop by and say hello! ❤

London – November 5th, 1988

All hopes of me trying to kickstart my love life seemed to have failed. There has been so much else going on in my life over the last few months that I’ve disregarded it, and now Cupid seems to be paying me back.

The date I had with David last night was a disaster. I might as well have been on a date with a broomstick because David had as much energy as a piece of plasterboard. The broomstick would have come in handy for me to have made my escape. However, maybe I’m a little unfair in what I say because I really just do not feel in the mood for any romance at the moment. It’s the wrong time, and I should…

I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve been asked how to generate more readers, comments and followers.

Make no mistake about it, with limited amounts of time, millions of other blogs to read, readers have a vast choice of not only which blogs to follow, but which posts to read and/or comment on.

Here are seven tips I have implemented as a blogger which have got me more readers, followers, and comments left on my posts.

Eyecatching Post Titles

I don’t know about you, but I always look at the title of a blog post first before deciding whether to read it or not. The title of the post has to really grab my attention and make me want to click the link to open it. If the title has no appeal, then I move on. Take, for example, these…

Is Your Blog As Friendly As You Think It Is?

A great reminder from Hugh, to check out how friendly your blog is… besides these are just good habits to have in our community. ❤

Hugh's Views & News  

Just imagine it’s your first day here on Planet Blog and you and everyone else with you hears the words “Hands up all those that want 1,000 followers.” What percentage of people in your group do you think would put up their hand?

What inspired you to write it?

At the time, we lived north of Pensacola, Florida in a rural area where most mornings, I walked along a country road for exercise. One foggy November morning, I saw something in the bushes at the side of the road next to the swamp that I will never forget.

I thought I saw a ruby-throated hummingbird, but as I peered inside the bushes, I  I was bearing witness to a magical event. It was something else entirely. I saw a tiny green being which I now believe was a swamp…
