I came across the weekly writing challenge for the first time last night so I thought I’d take a look.
The challenge was to comment on five random blogs, any topic you liked. Proper comments as well, not just putting ‘great post’.
So I gave it a go.
The first thing I typed in was British traditions and I came across a great post about running with flaming barrels in Ottery St Mary. I think that one is added to the list of things to see. But then this caught my eye (click here). He’s doing his own challenge like mine :) Well I had to comment on that one.
Then I searched for Middle Aged and found a very interesting blog from a lady just going through divorce. It struck a chord so I commented on that one too.
Next I tried something closer to home (well Man”s home anyway) and searched for Nottingham. I found this site (click here) with some amazing photos of Wollaton Hall in Nottingham, which is a place I love.
I searched for Albania and enjoyed reading about a journey through that country (click here). I then hooked out some of my own photographs of Albania, taken about six years ago and that brought back some happy memories.
Finally I typed in Dracula and found a review of the Bram Stoker book I have just finished reading myself.
It was a fun challenge, I’ve followed a few new blogs, a couple of people have followed mine and I learned some interesting stuff.
Now here are a few of those pictures of Albania I found, such a great place to explore … way to many octopi on the menus though :)
