Bloggy's First Comment

I wonder if I should get a baby book for my blog. Thanks to RevJen for showing me what a blog comment looks like from my end, and for the words of encouragement. I had the foresight to activate email notification, not fearing for a moment that my inbox would be flooded, nor was it.

I'm in a somewhat taciturn state of mind today, having stayed up rather late watching old TV shows on DVD. I put Amadeus on for Julian last night, and he watched it fairly attentively for a non-kids movie. It was way past his bedtime, though, when we got to the Intermission (i.e., the point when one has to turn the disc over) so hopefully we'll watch the exciting conclusion tonight.

Today I want to focus on reading the blogs of my friends...I hope to add more to this entry throughout the day.

I'm an avid Flickr user, and host a fun group called Theme of the Week. The theme changes every Sunday at 2:00 pm (Pacific Time), i.e., right about now.

The new theme for this week is Toy, however you wish to interpret or express this.

Photos must be taken between April 22, 2007 and April 29, 2007. 2 entries per person per theme.

Ideally photos should be taken with the theme in mind.

1st and 2nd place winners get to judge the following week's contest.

I invite anyone interested to participate! It's quite fun to go out and take photos with a theme in mind.

We're awaiting the judges' decision on the theme Blue

Here are last week's winners, on the theme Bugs:

Good luck with the bloggin project! I'm awed at how prolific you've become and how quickly.

Thank you for the encouragement and furthering of the literary arts within the TT community.

Where did you take the picture of the cineraria? If you grew it, did you gather any seeds? Can I have some; it's such a pretty blue.

That wasn't my photograph. It was the photo of a contest winner on Flickr I was showcasing.

Here's a link to the original photo on Flickr: Cineraria- blue and white
