Blogging 101: Be Inspired By the Community

First off let us say this, I already feel blessed to be a part of a spectacular community that is quickly growing, as the orples and I keep stumbling on new blogs, and wonderful people. As we travel through cyberspace, we find ourselves exploring the world, tromping through the wilderness, visiting our neighbor’s domains.  Sometimes, I find it hard to squeeze in my own adventures. Believe me, Inspiration is not a problem for us—by any means. The world is at our ‘twigtips’.

One of Sonel's lovely friends meets the orples.

The above conversation came about as the result of a delightfully surprising ping-back my friend, Sophia (in Africa), created on a thread I began, involving a fly. Mr. Fly looked so cool sitting on that beautiful flower in ‘Sonel’s blog‘.

Meet Mr. Fly. This is where this story started.

and then, this happened ….. After Sophia invited us to come and stroll through her blog, the orples met Mr. Fly (above), only to be told to go away.  Sophia stepped right up to the plate in the orple’s defense. She and her friends told Mr. Fly a thing or two, as you can tell by the conversation in the first picture with Ms. Barbet. I’m suspect this story isn’t over yet. No matter, while we waiting for that tale to unfold, if you would like to visit the neighbors, to see what our friends are up to, you’ll find the orples have been globe trotting, enjoying a variety of adventures, worldwide.

Someone please tell Mr. Fly that he might actually have fun, if he'd relax long enough to stop and play. He seems to be so serious.

Anyway, back to our original story; Sophia told the story of Mr. Fly and his bad manners to the fine folks at Michelle’s Pet Challenge, and wha-lah! Sophia not only honored me with mega-links—I might add—she fulfilled her weekly critter challenge—two birds, one stone. Sophia really outdid herself, too.  I am still awestruck, and grateful for the effort she put into her beautiful post. I suspect she had fun doing it on her end. I know I’ve enjoyed the conversations on our end. If you would like to join the orples as they explore our world, prey tell through a comment on my of my blog posts. Leave me a link to your blog. Introduce yourselves. Check out what we’re doing, already. Read my other posts to follow the conversations, through post content, and comments to find out what we’re up to. Be nosy. All are welcome. Grab a badge and be an orple-keeper, too. As Olivia and Oscar always say, “The more, the merrier.”

  1. Marcy, I am in awe! Every time you just suprise me more and more hon. You are so creative and that imagination of yours! I wish I had only a little bit of it. 😆 You made my day hon! Thanks for the lovely post and I am glad the Orples enjoyed their visit. Mr Crested Barbet says they are totally adorable and next time I will tell the monkeys to leave some seeds for Oscar. A pity he wasn’t here this morning. I gave them Fruit Loops. LOL! I think Oscar would have enjoyed that as well. 😀

    Stunning art as usual sweetness and thanks for the lovely mention and compliments. You are so kind. 😀 ♥

    • Everybody loves Fruit Loops. I used to carry some in a fanny pack (among other treats) for Magi when we had our little adventures. Thank you for stopping in today, Sophia. I was delighted to open my e-mail to find some lovely messages waiting, and you know, it is always a pleasure to share stories. This has been a fun one. Oscar is looking forward to eating seeds with the monkeys. Oscar likes to eat, almost as much as he likes to get into trouble, LOL. Stay posted, and we will see you in Orpleland, in the meantime, tell your little friends ‘hello’. The orples and I send our love. 🙂

    • Thank you Madhu. I am flattered that you think so. It appears these little adventures are going to be a lot of fun for us all. Keep your eyes open. Even I never know who we’ll be visiting next in Orpleland. You are on our list! 😉

      I don’t think Mr. Fly is going to be a problem anymore. He’s outnumbered. LOL. Thanks so much for dropping in to join the fun. We will see you SOON. 🙂
