Blogging Betty has been found safe and well, in amongst the tangled life of Betty’s bunch.
She seems to be suffering from amnesia, and has no idea of her wherabouts for the entire month that she has been missing.
‘It’s all a blur,’ says blogging Betty, who looks well enough sitting in the joint at the top of the garden.
“One minute I was blogging away, making friends and building up my blog following, when bam I woke up, and weeks have passed.
Nothing has been done, karensjointatthetopofthegarden.com remains dormant. I love that the house seems much tidier and festive now,than before I left.
And there’s lots of home made food lying around.
Everybody looks happy..
I only wish that someone had remembered to press publish on my blogs. It’s not much to ask for” she added.
A spokesperson for Betty’s Bunch said ‘we’re just pleased that Blogging Betty is home. She’s a bit grumpy about the fact we forgot about her blogs, but other than that she seems fine”.
“It looks like the clean house won’t last now that Blogging Betty is back, she hates cleaning with a passion. She feels that she has much more important things to do in life than clean” said one member of the Bunch, who didn’t wish to be named for fear of repercussion.
“Blogging Betty’s idea of cleaning is to leave the vacuum plugged in indefinitely, so that if anybody visits she can say ‘oh you’ve just caught me about to vacuum’ (It’s the thought that counts.) Or she’ll hope that the fairies will do it at some point or another.
Blogging Betty is so passionate about writing, that nothing else gets done around the house, explain Betty’s Bunch.
We help out as much as we can, but she doesn’t accept help very easily, we’re working on it.
Blogging Betty is said to be resuming duties with immediate effect, and is now again the leader of the pack.
Blogging Betty would like to thank everybody for their patience whilst she has been missing in action. She thanks the Bunch for holding the fort whilst she was gone, and for baking enough food to feed an army.
She remains optimistic that her memory will return, and her blogging journey will continue on as before. “There’s a lot of work to catch up on, but i’m sure things will only get better”. ‘Don’t ever give up on finding yourself again, it’s always worth it.”
She and the Bunch would like some time to come to terms with the fact that their Triberr is broken. Time to rebuild the foundations that went into creating Triberr from scratch. Betty is sure that the knowledge is in her somewhere, it just may take some time to find it.
I snapped this picture last night from the Joint at the top of the garden.
I see a man on the moon. How about you ?
I see faces in everything, I have something called Pareidolia.
It’s quite common apparently, so if anybody else has it, speak up, and tell me what you see.
Today I decided to write my blog about the sixth sense.
A blog that I read earlier had said to use your own images in your blogs, or you could well be sued. Just because you find an image on the internet, this does not mean that it is yours to do whatever you want with, and as my money is already spoken for, from today onwards I will only use images that I possess in my camera roll.
I’m very new to the whole internet ‘Thing’.
At the tender age of 50, I have thrown myself in at the deep end, and luckily I’m a kick ass swimmer.
My sixth sense lead me on this blogging path, because I have important messages to share.
Today whilst meditating I received a message from somebody called Barbara who was murdered. She shared the name Rita, but that was really all I could work out from this message. Short and sweet.
I began wondering who this message could be for.
Then I realised that it could be one of my followers, or Facebook friends, but how would i find out?
Well, by asking them I was told.
So I decided to put it to the test and see if any of my virtual friends would understand this message.
Living with a sixth sense can be so rewarding, it can also be quite overwhelming.
I have found that if I don’t pass a message on, it hangs around me for days until I do.
Passing on messages can be very difficult. Some people aren’t ready to hear the message, or are sceptic that there was even a message there in the first place.
Learning something new every day has become a part of my spiritual and physical journey. I love learning, and there’s a whole other world out there that we know so little about.
Only when every eye is opened, will the truth be revealed.
If my message resonates with anybody, please feel free to contact me. Maybe there is more to this message than meets the eye.
A few months ago, quite by chance I connected with a lady called Joan Hughes. As soon as I connected with Joan, I felt as though I knew her.
I live in the UK, and Joan is from New York. Joan told how she had recently published her first ever novel, and it was then that I had a vision that her book would become a best seller.
I told Joan this before purchasing her book, and then requested a signed copy if she wouldn’t mind.
I have never asked for a signed copy of any book, and being a book lover I have read many.
After explaining that I was psychic, and that our energies had connected to bring her a message or a sign that she was on the right path. she took it all in her stride.
Joan had to purchase her own book from Amazon, then she had to pay extortionate postage fees to ship the book to the UK.
All of this at a virtual strangers request.
I received my book Growing Only Dandelions, with a beautiful inscription from Joan, and I was not disappointed, my opinion remained the same, it would become a bestseller.
I have watched over the months as Joan promotes her book, she has been very proactive in getting her voice heard above the noise in many places and especially on Facebook.
A few weeks ago I noticed a post from Joan saying that she had been banned from sharing, or even participating in an Facebook book club group, because of her controversial novel.
I couldn’t understand why it was deemed to be controversial, and Joan told me that the explanation from the admin of the group, was that because the word ‘God’ was used too many times in her story, and religion can be controversial.
Correct me if I’m wrong but when was the word God deemed controversial ? I felt very strongly that Joan’s book was being hidden from view by certain influential online groups.
Joan’s book has a wonderful story, it touched my heart, and is touching the heart and spirit of most who read it.
Today Joan and I received another sign or Message that things are still on track.
I posted a cheque off to Joan a few weeks ago, to reimburse her any costs involved for my the purchase of my signed copy.
Today I had a message from Joan saying that she had received her cheque, she was gobsmacked at the amount, and did I know the significance of the number 3, or how symbolic it was to her book?
I may be psychic, but I’m not that good, I replied that no, I had no idea of the significance of the number 3 for her or her book.
I had forgotten the amount that the cheque was for, I just converted the $42 that she had paid in the US, with the UK exchange rate, and it came in at £33.
However for Joan it didn’t end there, as she was relaying the incident to her sons girlfriend, who also aware of the significance of 3, she had her own sign, when her battery was showing at 33 %.
They say signs always come in three’s, Joan’s third sign was pointed out to her by her husband, it was right behind her written on the wall.
The story in Joan’s own words.
Joan informs me that she had written this number all the way through her book, 3, three, third, as her way of blessing the book.
I hadn’t noticed when I read it, but I will be sure to notice it the next time I do.
Signs are all around us, it is whether we choose to notice them or not that makes the difference. I believe that Growing only Dandelions is meant to be read by all.
One other sign for me came when I found out that Joan is also the founder of JT’s Law.
It was set up to honour the memory of her Godson JT who died after a choking tragedy.
What Joan doesn’t know is that I have a severe phobia of children choking. I can’t even be around children eating without panicking. I developed this phobia after watching my then 6 year old baby brother, almost choking to death on a boiled sweet. I myself was only 8 years old at the time, and the memory still haunts me to this day.
Finding out that Joan is a crusader in child choking prevention, is also a sign to me that we are connected on a very spiritual level.
Bon voyage Joan… until we meet again 💕 love Betty x
Not only that, I had no computer skills whatsoever.
I decided to do some research and my goal was to have my own website and my very own blog.
I have a passion for writing, I found it late in life at the age of 50, but better late than never is my motto.
I had written over 80,000 words, and they just kept coming.
I needed an outlet for these words and this is how I found the blogging world.
In general, I have found the blogging community to be great.
Full of helpful friendly people who readily give you advice, from things that they themselves have learned along the way.
Because of the help and advice given by other bloggers, and my own research, I now have my blog up and running, and I am the proud owner of my very own piece of cyberspace.
My first step was to purchase a computer.
Doing research I came across WordPress.com
It looked professional, and it had great reviews from other bloggers.
This is where my blogging journey began.
WordPress has been a life saver for me, as somebody with very few computer skills, and a completely different way of learning.
I have Autism and needed a lot of support from the tech guys at WordPress, their customer service was second to none.
WordPress will guide you every step of the way. I didn’t even know what a cache was until a helpful agent from WordPress told me. They are extremely patient, and take time to listen to your technical issues.
If like me you would love to blog but feel you don’t have the technical skills, this is the perfect site to do it.
Blogging can earn you money from the comfort of your own home, doing something that you love. That was incentive enough for me to want to learn about this blogging thing. I haven’t started on the monetary side of things yet, as I am still basking in the glory of my achievements on the blogging scene for now, the rest will come later.
If I can do it, then anybody can… I learn something new every day, and love to share my stories. Stories are meant to be shared love Betty x
Sitting pondering as I am want to do. My mind goes, as it usually does, and my thoughts turn to how much I appreciate my life.
Things were so different a few months ago, and I just like most people took my life for granted. We assume we are going to wake in the morning, hope that the bus will turn up, and that we might just get to work on time. But we tend not to think about how lucky we are to just be alive.
Recently after a near death experience I saw the light at the end of the tunnel and decided to follow it.
It took me, and is still taking me to places I have never been before.
One of these new places is a land called Appreciation.
It’s a distant world that the opposition have been trying to keep hidden from us for generations.
The land that time forgot …
Every now and again a soul catches a glimpse of this land, and realises the importance of this place that time forgot. They will try to shout above the noise, and try to tell the world about this land that time forgot.
Be thankful for your life… you will never get another one quite like it ….tomorrow is not promised.
Betty, that’s me, it isn’t really Boop obviously, but for the sake of my mental wellbeing, I wish to remain incognito for now.
3 months ago I suffered a severe mental health crisis, and had a near death experience, and my life changed forever.
Instead of taking my own life, cannabis allowed me to see past my failures and helped me to start looking for success. I needed to succeed in life.
At the ripe old age of 50, I decided that I was going to write a best selling book, I wrote the book, and still had more to say, so I then decided to start blogging, this was where I could get all of my thoughts and feelings out on a social platform, and one day my story could maybe become somebody else’s survival guide.
3 months ago i owned a mobile phone, a cheap iPhone 5SE and that was only used to play games on. This was the extent of my tech knowledge. I knew nothing at all about the internet. Only that you could find anything you wanted on there.
To cut a long story short, as I do like to go on a bit, I obtained a computer and I taught myself how to create a website, how to open a Triberr account, and how to use it… a Twitter account, Instagram, Pinterest, Quora & Tumblr.
I still cant quite get my head around linkedIn yet, but given time I will.
I am very active on most of these accounts, and I share religiously .
I actually get more enjoyment from sharing other people’s work than I do from sharing my own.
My blogging mission is to raise awareness for mental health disorders, Autism, the benefits of Cannabis, and a variety of world wide subjects that aren’t highlighted enough in society today.
The world as we know it will soon be gone, a new world will take its place and we need to start preparing for it now. The world is full of anger and hate. It is full of poverty, greed, despair, homelessness, and most of it man made.
Our new generation need to learn how to love again and to be kind to each other.
Being kind seems to be a forgotten skill in many people today.
So I decided to be as kind as humanly possible, and to start sharing everybody’s work. It doesn’t matter whether this work is applicable to me or not, but it may be helpful to others. The things I share may be of no value to myself, but somebody has taken the time to write these blogs or books or pictures, or whatever else I share, and I want to give them a helping hand to share their message that they have worked hard on.
It isn’t hard, all it is is one click.
One click that could change someone else’s life.
I have 18 followers on my blog, which is pretty cool, 18 people who want to read my blog, which to me is pretty amazing.
I have been putting in a lot of work into finding out how to get more people interested in my blog. I have been commenting on other peoples work, sharing it, and being kind.
I have been ignored mainly. I understand that people are busy, but so am I, and I still manage to reply to messages, comments and I always thank people for sharing my work.
I’m not selling anything only sharing stories which may one day save a persons life, or even just make them smile for a moment.
Healing the world one soul at a time. I tend to become quite impatient, and want to spread the word faster and quicker, so my thoughts go to how to attract more people to my blog.
There is so much wonderful and helpful information out there for new bloggers. I have been listening to advice, buying ebooks, and learning the ropes from the pro’s. I have so much more to learn. In the meantime in my hurry to attract new followers I decided to try jumping on the blog train and the follow train.
So I follow all instructions, all I had to do was like and follow everybody else on the train, and they would follow me back, then all I had to do was retweet the post to gain even more. It sounded so simple, and that is because it is. This persons twitter account promised to triple your following overnight.
Great I thought, a way for me to help even more people.
I liked every one of the hundreds of fellow tweeters, bloggers, and writers, who also liked it.
I came across some very interesting characters whom I now class as my new twitter friends, so I am happy with that.
So I sit waiting patiently for my new twitter friends to follow me back like they said they would, and 4 people followed me back, thank you to those 4 people who stuck to the bargain as I did.
Beginning to feel like the invisible man, I jumped on the blog train, shared my blog, followed other bloggers … etc etc… nothing … zilch..nada….
One lady, who’s name I shall not mention, recently shared a post on how you should always thank others for sharing your posts, it is only common decency to do so, and I totally agree with her. Only this woman is a hypocrite. I have shared numerous things of hers, commented on her posts and she has never once acknowledged me.
Practice what you preach…
Actions speak louder than words..
The only way to actually get your Blog noticed is to do it yourself, don’t rely on these phoney people or accounts to do the work for you.
Perseverance is key…
Don’t give up….
Keep on sharing the love, and love will start to follow you back.
Thank you to all my fellow conspirators who do take the time to share my work, I love you all.
