‘Especially for you…’

Welcome back to my Blogging 101, day three challenge – Say Hello to the Neighbours

I did not have to think even a minute about how I will bring to life today’s assignment…it is my absolute pleasure to dedicate my post to all of you who once upon a time stepped into my world and found it worthy of your attention…or maybe just walked on its long corridor with red walls and got tempted to open a few doors…or perhaps this is the very first time you find yourself paging through my red diary and discover a bit of inspiration:)

This is especially for you…

Today I had the honour to meet a fellow blogger who left me a message that made me smile and feel inspired!

I can’t possibly move forward and not mention Swaroop Sadarjoshi and his blog…thank you so much for the lovely words and encouragement but especially for the creative quote:

“May your dreams be new,

Like the sky of beautiful blue“.

I’ve never in my wildest dreams, imagined that my blogging journey will be filled with so many inspirational people, extraordinary stories and talented artists…yes, I’ve called you artists…because no matter what is your intention or your message…if you express yourself through images or words…you are creating art…beautiful and eternal print of who you are!

I’ve been reading some of your comments and I feel so lucky to have so many people around me who love how I see the world, who join me and sometimes look through the same goggles as me…

You are to me, like a beautiful flower garden…colourful and unique…special and endless…inspirational and kind.

You are the reason I find myself constantly thinking, how can I inspire you…how can I draw you into my fantasy…how can I take you on a journey of discovery?

It’s been only three days into Blogging 101 and I’ve already had the pleasure to meet so many amazing bloggers, might that be beginners or well established…and you know what…I feel like my family it’s growing by the second becoming more diverse and full of creativity and personality:)

Thank you for your fantastic support…words of encouragement…likes and smiles…thank you for having great expectations…for finding that red bookmark and place it between the red pages of my blog:)

Your author and biggest fan,

Julia

I want to thank Huma and her blog https://humaaq.wordpress.com for these nominations:)

Make time to visit her blog as I can assure you it will feel like home, from her beautiful personality to each word she writes that is made to inspire her readers, HumaAq is definitely unique. She is getting very close to her 100th post so I think it’s a perfect time to celebrate her passion and commitment to sharing her world with all of us.

Screen Shot 2015-05-11 at 21.39.15

The month of May was like a wonderful warm summer shower of Awards…a few weeks ago, three of my fellow bloggers nominated me for the Liebster Award, so I’ve decided to dedicate a post to each of them as gratitude.

As I was writing theses posts, more nominations came through from other bloggers, so I found myself in the pool of Liebster…feeling all that love made me continue and return the appreciation of all these nominations!

The Liebster Saga starts from here and Episode One is dedicated to Shubhada at https://loveexpressing.wordpress.com. Thank you very much for the nomination:) 

Take a moment to visit her blog…you will feel the love from the first page and her poetry will open a new and wonderful world that will definitely inspire you!
