    1. Thanks, Debby. By that, I presume you mean Facebook and Pinterest? 😀 I appreciate it, especially as I’ve decided not to go back to either. 🙁 I feel like I’ve lifted a heavy burden off my shoulders by cutting down on my social media accounts. Of course, it could backfire, but we’ll see.

      1. FB, Pinterest, Linkedin, Google and Flipboard. Don’t forget about Flipboard! LOL And good on you for taking action on what’s weighing you down. I’m drowning, lol. P.S. I will be reblogging this next week and of course I fully intend on entering! 🙂 xoxo


  1. I, like an eejit commented on Ritu’s reblog, but I figured you might need to see it too 🙂

    I previously commented, and a good night’s sleep has made no difference lol

    “I’m too tired to count, can I just do the tie breaker 🙂


    1. Thanks, Juls. I’ve deleted the caption, cause it was right good and I don’t want anyone else getting ideas. Actually, cause I’m not judging the competition, then I guess I need not worry, but there’s loads of time to count those sweets and enter the competition. Bookmark the page and come back to it in September. I’ll be publishing plenty of reminders; that’s guaranteed.

    1. In the very first year of the Bloggers Bash, I did come runner up in the funniest blog category, Tina. Then, the committee all decided that our blogs would not be eligible to be nominated. I think that was only fair, but stand-up comedy? Noooooooo 😀
      Thanks so much for sharing news of the competition. I appreciate it.
