The Explorer Voyages – The Cube

Reblogged on

I re-blogged this here about 10 days ago, but just for continuity, here it is again.

The next post is my first entry regarding the Explorer Voyages and in theory will link to Simon’s site

By Way of An Explanation

OK, this is the 1st of a few posts in rapid succession Shocked-face

Y’see I’ve signed up for Simon Farnell’s Explorer blog as one of his crew, and the subsequent posts will explain all.

This explanation would probably not be necessary on other blogs, but here on ‘Heroically’ as things might, can and will go wrong, it is.

Simon’s idea is a real cracker and I’m fascinated to see where it will go.

OK, I’m done on this one.

Some Recomendations for Chuckles


I have meaning to post for the last four days with many profound, incisive and dare I say witty observations on subjects which have caught my attention, but the exigencies of other pressing matters had made this a difficulty.

(Pause to re-read)imagesKUX2E4NSYep! That definitely has the necessary gravitas.


Firstly, there was the pause in the novel writing when it became apparent that continuity was falling apart all over the place and characters were displaying very alarming changes in personality. So re-write was in order.thE11YBTYO  This has been fun, and sometimes slow going to make sure the serious tone sort of stays in and deleting the ‘what-the-spifffle-was-I-thinking-when-I-wrote-that’ passages. But it’s tightening up, so it’s cool.

Secondly, there was work on another project, but that’s for another post (yes an air of mystery)

Thirdly, man do I feel tired these days. That might be a good sign, in that maybe some of the medications are no longer required and could be cut back on- to be approached with caution, but….we’ll see.vector-of-a-tough-cartoon-biker-man-riding-a-pink-scooter-by-ron-leishman-35154

Anddddd Fourthly; spending so much time reading up other folks’ blogs. There is a wealth of the interesting, informative, lyrical, optimistic, incisive, affirmative and humorous out there. Sometimes about 2-3 hours passes marvelling at the quality of work being produced. So if I’m following you…thanks for your time, effort, quality and enrichment. If I’m not following you yet, I’ll get there!


A while back I posted up some thoughts on humour, so with such in mind here are a few blogs I’ve encountered that are worth a mention (and for those not shown, no slights intended, oversight error lies with me)

Lucy MitchellIn addition to other witty postings Lucy has created a wonderfully comic world of Tina, a hapless would-be novelist who somehow never quite manages to achieve her best of intentions. We can laugh at and with Tina (‘cause we’ve all been there)

Simon Farnell – Simon’s blog contains a variety of subjects and he is a steady supplier of the latest NASA information. His blog also contains Minion posters, Dilbert strips and his own worthy cartoon work. Drop in and be cheered

Jerry Mabbott – Jerry is a stand-up comic and a writer with a line in wry observation humour. In addition to seeing the funny side of a situation he brings sound advice from a life time of experience. Enter his name on YouTube or Amazon, he’ll be there.

Lucy Brazier- Lucy is the creator of the Portergirl world; basically the singular goings- on of the college faculty and staff as seen through the first woman deputy porter. You never know what or who will happen next

Lennon Carlyle- Lennon is a lady with attitude to spare. This is her no-holds barred, outrageous view of the world. Be prepared for language, sex, music home-truths and a large number of laughs along the way

Just a few

So there we go; that’s it. No more to read here.stop footling 1 Stop hanging about. Get some chuckles in…I’m done.

Re-Spinning Posts: How You Can Self-Evaluate Your Blog

Now you see folks this is HOW you do it.

The PBS Blog

OK so you know that post you wrote last year that only got 3 likes and 2 views? Come on, we’ve ALL been there.

If you are new to this blog (Welcome! Waves) you may notice that I re-spin a lot of my posts. I expect anywhere from 50-100 new followers each year, which means a lot of new faces have not seen older posts, especially those that have really proven to be valuable. I try to re-spin my poetry at least once every year for this reason. I also re-spin posts I’d like to get more exposure. New faces also mean new perspectives.

Re-spinning posts is basically when you re-post a previously posted post (feel like I’m over writing the word post here). When this happens, the post shows up at the top of the reader and it also reaches the inboxes of new  e-mail…
