Since then I’ve become more and more interested in others blogs (how selfish to initially be just thinking of promoting myself). Now I enjoy the interaction and gleaning gems of beauty, inspiration and insight from others just as much as indulging my bent for writing. The world is a wonderful, multifaceted place, alive with different colours and hues, the blog sites reflect this. Happy blogging!
