Okay, this is one I can get into up to my well-endowed and rapidly aging hips since it follows my new discovery–creating pins for Pinterest. The current assignment from Blogging 101 is to craft a recurring feature post.
Perfect–and I know JUST what I’ll call it:
Freaky Friday Features
While the title is not terribly original, the first one posted is a pin I created today using of one of the latest discoveries from my Grandfather’s treasure trove, a painting of Cocos Island. (Only freaky, I guess, if you consider the original painting is close to 90 years old.) Yes, another subject I’ve covered fairly well on this blog. The island is a fascinating study actually borne of all the stories relating to pirate treasure, including the Loot of Lima. There were a number of pirates who buried their treasure on this island, however, one of which was Edward Davis, the subject of my grandfather’s sail to the island.
There are a number of reasons I like the idea of a recurring feature:
1) Foremost–means I don’t HAVE to create something new every week–I can just go and fine something outrageous to share. I figure it’s a win-win. I don’t have to spin my wheels, and the recipient of the repin gets an addition to her/his stats. You gotta love that!
2) It’s another promise to keep a regular schedule, a “healthy blogging habit,” according to the professors at ole Blogging U. For some reason, that phrase resonates with me–keeping it clean….and,
3) Last but not least (and I’m sure you could come up with another one or two), it keeps the old wheels spinning. Seems I’m finding a wealth of writing prompts lately. And now apparently I get to combine those with work on Photoshop–I figure that’s another win-win!
This blogging thing just keeps getting more fun (coincidentally the more I learn to use it), and apparently it seems as if there is a LOT more to learn. So bring it on!
Here’s hoping you’ll enjoy the fun and whimsical pins posted here amusing. If you do, I’d greatly appreciate your “like,” or even a comment. Go for it! 2016 ©Virginia Williams
