If we were having coffee – 26 March 2016

If we were having coffee, then you would find me listening to Regina Spekor, so many of her songs have me in awe, but seen recent developments in my life, I really enjoy the song How (I am linking you to the youtube video) just listen to this beautiful lyrics…

Solveig's MugIf we were having coffee, then I would as always have no coffee to propose to you. Would you like a hot chocolate or a tea instead? And help yourself to the fruit you might like, grapes, strawberries, giant pomegranates, oranges, bananas, apples, kiwi, mango, passion fruits or pears? Yes, I guess we are fruit fanatics. I also have some good baguette left over from this morning with Schokonuss (a hazelnut spread from Germany, which is almost 50% hazelnut), a heavenly treat, or with raw butter, both are lovely treats. I also have a lot of cookies and little cakes as my mother in law send us a care parcel from the south of France, her bakery does a lot of tasty things.

Great Blogging Events – Part 1: Weekly Events

When I started blogging last year I quickly realised that there are various events that can tickle ones creativity, gain readers, find new blogs, build a blogging habit… Many of my readers found me through such events, and I found many of the blogs I read through events.

I often find myself recommending events to other bloggers. Below I have compiled a small  huge list of events that I can recommend you join. I initially wanted to do a post including weekly, monthly and yearly events, but by the look of it I am going to split this post into at least two parts.

If you are a blogger this list might be interesting if you are looking for linkups, prompts, new readers, new blogs to read, developing a blogging habit, motivation …

If you are only a reader, you might find some great posts to read, and some new blogs to follow. Why only read my blog? Continue reading “Great Blogging Events – Part 1: Weekly Events”
