Thanks for stopping by to read. I hope you’ll come back after reading a post or two and add your own wisdom, comments, tips, inspirations and whatever else you’d like (with the exception of mean comments) — no room for that here. Seriously, please don’t. There’s so many other platforms for one to spew negative vibes. This isn’t one of them.
This is a place for exchanging ideas in a lively and respectful way.
Share your good news. Comment on what you see/read here. Spread the word and I’ll do the same for you. What are you reading? What are ways in which you summon up your muse when you just don’t think you can do it any more?
This began as a writing blog but has evolved as….a place for like-minded people, including writers, to get together, relax and feel comfortable.
This isn’t a place for fighting about politics, religion, spreading celebrity gossip or any of that other kind of stuff. And, no it’s not going to be all unicorns and rainbows either. Please — speak your mind — just do it with respect, insight and intelligence.
We’re adults. We write and we’re nice people. I think you get the gist.

You’ve been awarded the Beautiful Blogger Award once again. Please check out the rules on my blog Life if Full of Surprises 🙂
Wow. Thank you!!!
I like the concept of this blog! I’ll be sure to keep stopping by!
Great, thank you for the nice comment.:).
Just one question, how on earth your blog have so many responses and comments? Me, on the other side, is almost zero.
Please share your wisdom. Thank you.
It was the freshly pressed thing! Plus I follow and comments blogs myself. Thank you!!!
So I don’t really know where oon your blog to write this comment… so I’ll write it here…
All I really wanted to say is, your blog is BRILLIANT! Really, it is. Well, good luck with your writing! I’ll be following! ;P
I will take BRILLIANT!! :). What a nice comment and many, many thanks for stopping by and following.
I am very much so a beginner in the realm of blogging (or having anyone read my writing for that matter). I really love your positive vibe and your efforts in motivating others and staying motivated yourself! And I agree with you, there is absolutely no room for negativity here (or anywhere). Keep up the lovely attitude!
Hi there, so glad you felt such a positive vibe from reading. Love the name of blog, BTW — very nice. Great luck as you begin your blogging adventure and thanks so much for the lovely comment! :).
Congrats on the Freshly Pressed, much deserved. Beautiful blog and important insight. And the quote about sharing light- I am definitely going to use that!
Thank you it was nice and totally unexpected. I appreciate your stopping by to comment! :).
I like your philosophy – it echoes my own. I’ve ‘met’ some lovely people in this blogging world – I’ve been blogging for 6 months and I’m loving the conversations and the finding out about other people’s lives – and the support that’s out there. All the best to you 🙂
Thank you and love the name of your blog. Pics are lovely too! So kind of you to stop by and comment and all the best to you and your beautiful blog as well. :).
Thank you for your kind comments 🙂
A very unique description of a blog! Very well written!
Why thank you very much!!:).
The more I read of your blog the more I like it so I hit the follow button. I am so glad you were freshly pressed otherwise I might never have found you. We seem to like a lot of the same things.
Hi Kerry, thank you — love your “ramblings by foot or speech,” that’s great!! Thanks so much for the reblog. I plan to explore so many great blogs once the dust settles and yours looks wonderful. Thank you!!:).
You are welcome 🙂
I like how you have tried to set some boundaries for people commenting. I think one of the reasons I stay private with my blogging is I’m afraid of the negative, hurtful comments others may decide to write. I am going to change my “about” entry to include some boundaries of my own. Going to start following you, Brigette, I think I can learn a few things about this thing called “blogging”.
Hi Sydney, thank you. Took me a very long time to even consider blogging but it’s nice when people comment and say they’ve learned something or laughed about something I’ve said or maybe even given them an idea. Also, you don’t have to allow anything on your blog that you don’t want to. If there’s a hurtful comment, just don’t display it and ignore it. I think you’ll find the WordPress community/bloggers are great people from all kinds of places doing all sorts of great things. Good luck to you! :).
Hey there, I have nominated you for two awards 🙂
You got a lovely blog and I absolutely adore your writing style. Check out the link below to accept it-

Thank you Teresa! That is so fabulous of you!! :).
HI Brigitte – well, congratulations again! I’ve nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award – looks like you know the drill: visit my post http://lauralamere.com/2012/08/22/very-inspiring-blogger-award/ – follow instructions; and call me in the morning. Oops, I don’t think that’s part of it. Oh well, congrats anyway, I love your blog!
Laura, that’s so nice! Thank you. I have that one but I will most definitely take it again. I love your blog too. Thank you sooooo much!
I saw your comment on my Ode to Le Clown, and i just had to come by and show some love.
Hi Boomie, Welcome! Right back at you. :).
Banter is a Glasgow word. “He’s got good banter.” Glasgow is in Scotland, by the way incase you didn’t know that. It’s called Glasgow Banter, we definitely covet this word and we have great banter in these parts because it is so cold, we have to have our humour.
Love your blog and your banter is pretty good.
I didn’t know that it was a Glasgow word but I did know where Glasgow was. ;). From the looks of your blog, I’ll have to agree that you do have great banter and I’ll take pretty good, that’s just fine 🙂 — thank you! And I hope you’ll visit again soon.
I’ve been reading through your blog, and I highly enjoy it. I’ll most likely be back to lurk some more, so watch out! 😉
Hi Llwelleyn! Thank you and you can lurk around here anytime you want to. 😀
Just discovered your blog and love it already. It’s fab and am now following
Hi J, thank you!!! Welcome and I’ll be visiting you soon. Look forward to your posts and more about your quest. ;).
I like your rules here B. Very much. Hope to participate in the support!!
Why thank you and welcome! And I hope you will and will visit you soon as well. Have a great weekend.
thank you and you too!!!
Are you still out of power? And if you are you can’t read this so it’s stupid of me to be contacting you. Hope you are safe and hopefully warm. xo
Just posted something. Thank you for stopping by, Mags and checking in. xxoo
ok good, I’ll go visit now!
A BIG thank you for the motivation. I’m a recent college grad and just quit a great internship opportunity to get the hell off of a computer (oops, wait, here again…) and give myself time to seek and genuinely discover my passions. Writing has always been one of them, and now, I find myself here. I’ve been hesitant of starting for ages now, but I’m glad I finally came on board =). Looking forward to read more of your stuff, Brigitte. All the best x
Hi Kelly and thank you for the follow! I’m so glad something I wrote struck a chord with you. A recent college grad, huh? Well, you’ve got the world wide open to you don’t you? I so hope you find your passion (and please remember to have fun while doing it) and kudos for you for quitting something that you knew wasn’t right for you. Most people don’t do that; the fact that you did means you’re already ahead of the game. Thank you so much and I look forward to reading more about you as well, K.
You have got a really nice blog here… I will come back and read more for sure 🙂 It was nice to meet you!
I’m a big fan of witter banter. I can’t wait to see what banter and shenanigans go on here!
Welcome Ben. Why thank you. There’s serious and funny here so peruse at your leisure. Your blog is funny.
Just wanted to stop by and thank you for your wonderful review of ‘The Seneca Scourge’ on Amazon today. What a wonderful surprise to find! I’m so glad you enjoyed the book. I appreciate you taking the time to review it. Thanks again and have a great weekend!!
You’re most welcome and it’s well-deserved, Carrie. You have a great weekend too.
