by Wag ‘n Bietjie.
Thank you Maria for inviting me to participate in the Eternamenta blog awards.
The following excerpt from my sticky on reblogs best explains why I started the Wag ‘n Bietjie blog…
“Broadly speaking I have great admiration for true bloggers with a talent for writing posts that engage the interest of internet users. I do not consider myself to be in this category as I derive much more satisfaction from reading well written posts across a fairly broad spectrum covering technology, poetry, travel, cuisine, photography and many other topics.
I opted to start blogging because of personal circumstance and a desire to focus on something constructive rather than fixating on events in my life that made me feel sad. Self pity is a negative state of mind and I rather choose to look at the positive side of life and experience the creative talents of the many wonderful people in the world.
I have been encouraged by other bloggers to post my own articles and on occasion I will share my thoughts on a topic or event. Primarily however I will be posting reblogs.”
Insights from the writings of others have proved to be beneficial to my own well-being and richly rewarding and satisfying in terms off acknowledgement and feedback.
I have great respect for the blogging community especially:
