Blue Sky Tag

Blue Sky Tag is a fun event for June, the height of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere, with plenty of blue sky days! Mind you, here in our milder Candelo Winter in the Southern Hemisphere, we are still being graced with beautiful blue skies, albeit a little cooler!

Why did you start blogging?

I started my blog to document the development of our new garden, as well as share some of the magical gardens we have visited over the years and the incredible beauty of our new area. Since then, it has extended to include my twin passions of  Old Roses and books!

What is your least favourite part about blogging?

Keeping up with the technical computer aspects, like when WordPress occasionally makes changes and I have to figure out a new way of doing the things I want to do!!!

How long do you spend blogging each day?

It varies, according to the day of the week and particular post! I like to keep well ahead with my drafts, so there is no last minute panic, which requires a fair degree of organisation and planning ahead! Usually, on a Tuesday, I will recheck the drafts for editing errors before I post, so probably about half an hour maximum. Also commenting on other blogger’s posts and replying to comments might take another half hour. While the writing may take an hour or two and choosing, reducing the size and inserting the photos may take another hour, it is the initial research that takes the longest and this can take a whole day! I love the researching aspect and easily lose track of time when discovering a new subject area! I try to reserve Thursday for producing new posts, but occasionally may use part of Wednesday as well.

Do you have another job? What is it?

I volunteer at a charity organization, which recycles clothing, bric-a-brac, books, media and furniture, then resells them, so lots of variety in the job. Tasks vary from sorting, pricing, displaying, retail selling, and general cleaning.

How many pets do you have?

Our beautiful old dog, Scamp, died 2 years ago and while we will probably get another one at some stage, we are thoroughly enjoying the freedom of being able to visit our beautiful National Parks and take holidays without having to worry about kennels! We also love all the birds and insects, which visit our garden!

Do you speak any other languages and what are they?

I learnt French back at school and while there are limited opportunities to practise it here, it has been very useful on our two visits to France, as well as for translating French texts! It is a beautiful, romantic and lyrical language!

Which book are you reading right now?

I am really enjoying a library book: The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman, a love story between two characters from very different backgrounds during the first decades of the 20th Century and set in New York. It is so good at conveying the magic and sense of wonder and curiosity of the time, as well as keeping you reading to the very end to discover the mystery of  the main character’s upbringings.

Which moment in history do you wish you could witness (and be safe!)?

I have always been fascinated by the time period from 1880 to 1910, when there was so much potential and so many things happening! I adore the Arts and Crafts Movement and Art Nouveau and also love the beautiful feminine wardrobe of the time, though I probably wouldn’t have liked the corsets!

Cake or Wine?

Definitely cake, which is not so good for my waistline nor weight, so I don’t have either cake or wine much these days! Unfortunately, wine gives me headaches now – I think it’s the preservatives! And I’m an incorrigible sweet tooth, so I always loved the tokays and sweet dessert wines the best, which isn’t good for my health either! So really, I should say neither!!!

If you could find out one secret or unknown from history or now, what would it be?

As an armchair amateur archaeologist, I would love to know the whole picture about the origin of modern humans. Archaeology is like a jigsaw with missing pieces and consequently, knowledge is always changing as each new piece is found!

Which is your favourite plant or flower and why?

Definitely Old Roses, because of their scents, generous blowsy forms, their subtle colours and their romance and history!

One Year On and Still Blogging!

It’s hard to believe that I first started blogging one year ago to the very day – Tuesday, the 1st September  2015! Sometimes, it feels like I have been blogging a lot longer, even though I find it equally astounding that I have actually written 89 posts, including this one! It’s been a great year and I have thoroughly enjoyed this new medium of expression, with no signs of slowing down yet, so I thought I would share with you my ten good reasons for blogging, as well as what I have learnt, not only about the blogging process, but also about myself!

Ten Good Reasons For Blogging

  1. It is a verbal and visual record of the development of our garden, my career as a textile artist and our new life here in this beautiful area. Already, looking back through old posts has reminded me how much we have achieved, as well as how much was in bloom at the same time last year- consoling reassurance for the impatient gardener that I am in late Winter/ very early Spring!
  2. It’s FUN! I have always kept a daily diary – a very useful tool when trying to remember the last dental or hairdresser visit! I love writing and really enjoy putting words together. Writing a blog is a way of organizing my thoughts and making me contemplate on how much we have achieved and how best to describe my thoughts. I have always been a keen reader and library user. I learnt to speed-read during my university studies, which is great for editing and quick perusals, but completely destroys my enjoyment of good literature. Words, and the way they are strung together, need to be savoured slowly, so if the book is particularly well-written or poetic in its language, I often read it out aloud to my husband, so it slows me down! We also get the shared enjoyment of a good book and can discuss the plot and characters together. The only drawback is that Ross often snoozes off while I am reading, so I often have to recap the plot at the second sitting and I swear that I am not a monotonous reader, but it works every time! And finally, I am a very keen photographer and take far too many photos, most of which are good (even if I do say so myself!), thus making it extremely hard to be selective!  Keeping a blog allows me to display the very best and be able to access them easily!
  3. It’s creative. I really enjoy the presentation aspect as well. In the old days of photo albums, I used to really enjoy organizing the photos- something I miss in these digital days, so blogging is a way of enabling me to continue this pleasure. I love producing a beautiful post and find it endlessly challenging. I also love flower arranging for the house, so the blog is a great visual record of my endeavours. I have also featured my daughter’s artwork in each monthly Feature Plant post, and even though she much prefers to paint animals, it has been good practice for her, as well as increasing her exposure and giving us some beautiful individual artwork in the process!

  4. Sharing : It is a very accessible and easy way to share current news and photographs with family and friends, without having to write huge emails, though I prefer to think of it as more like the chapters of a book, rather than a group Christmas letter! Through my blog, I can share thoughts, books, films, recipes and links to other interesting blogs.
  5. You become part of the growing blogging community, making new friends and connecting with like-minded people, even if it’s only on a digital level! The blogging community is a very generous and supportive group, encouraging others with blogging awards like the Liebster Award for new bloggers or the Sunshine Award for positive, creative, inspiring blogs, both of which I was honoured to receive! Answering the questions, and formulating your own, makes you really think about what is important to you, heightens your awareness of other blogs and increases your own blog base (as in the blogs you follow!), as well as your own exposure! I have found the communication very stimulating and enjoyable! Blogging can be seriously addictive, so much so that you have to be careful to still maintain your life off the computer!
  6. It’s inspirational, both for your readers and yourself! I love reading other people’s blogs and responding to comments. It opens your eyes to any myriad number of future topics- a bit like Pinterest, both in the way it inspires you with all the wonderful things in the world, but also in its ability to lure you into addictive behaviour! I have also really enjoyed revisiting other peoples’ gardens, which we visited through the Open Gardens Scheme and community events in my Favourite Gardens post. Researching the gardens and selecting old photos makes you really appreciate the gardens and gives you renewed enjoyment.
  7. It’s therapeutic and diversionary! Both for those times when life knocks you for a six or when things seem a bit slow in the depths of Winter, when everything hibernates and it seems to take FOREVER for seeds or bulbs to emerge and plants to grow- particularly hard for ‘right- now- kind- of- mice’  like myself! It certainly keeps me off the streets! It is also a way of promoting beauty and positivity in a world, so often dominated in the news by the latest disaster, thus maintaining equilibrium and happiness. It is so important to appreciate the small things of every day life and focus on all the good things. The world is an amazing place with some wonderful people and incredible beauty and uniqueness!BlogBugsBBB20%Reszd2015-12-08 17.01.52
  8. It’s good writing practice for future writing. While I will probably never write a novel- I really admire people who can!- I could possibly write a craft book if I get enough experience. And through blogging, I have already produced a digital recipe book and a guide to the local area and national parks nearby!
  9. It can promote your business interests and gives you a public digital presence.
  10. By showcasing our local area, our beautiful little village and community events, it’s a way of reciprocating and thanking this wonderful community, which has welcomed us.

What I have learnt about blogging

At the start of my journey, it was a very steep learning curve, but through trial and error, I have gradually developed my blogging skills, though there is still much to learn! Here are some of the things I have discovered:

  1. Word count is best kept to less than 5000 words- preferably 3000 words, though I struggle with this constantly, as I like cover a topic thoroughly!
  2. Reduce the size of your photos. This is really really important- right from the very beginning- otherwise you will chomp through the storage megabytes in no time at all! For Word Press, photos only need to be 800 mm x 600 mm and most cameras produce far larger photos- 4000 mm x 3000 mm or 5184 mm x 3888 mm. I use a program called Irfan and reduce my photos to 20 percent, though this varies- some of my older photos are 1600 mm x 1200 mm, so they are reduced to 50 percent of their original size. You can also specify particular dimensions, if you want all your photos to be exactly the same size. It is well worth it, as Word Press has a huge amount of photo storage, if used wisely.
  3. Regularity is important. I always post late Tuesday afternoon, with the odd Thursday post thrown in occasionally for special occasions like this one ! It develops good writing habits, as well as being easier for your audience, who know when to expect a post from you. I have not had writer’s block yet, but if words are slightly slower to come, I start from the photos and before I know it, the post has written itself!
  4. Planning ahead is also important to avoid last-minute stress! I plan my post topics throughout the year and like to stay ahead by 5-6 drafts. When I started in September last year, we already had 6 months of gardening to catch up on, then from September to January, I posted a garden post on a Tuesday and another topic, varying from recipes to local area posts, on a Thursday. To avoid repetition in 2016, I reduced my blogging to just Tuesdays and changed my format to : one post on a Feature Plant, which dominates the garden that month; a post on Favourite Gardens, which we have visited in the past; a monthly garden post describing our own garden developments and blooms and a random post on recipes, our local area and national parks or thoughts. In 2017, I plan to focus on my beloved Old Roses with a monthly post on Old Rose types; a Favourite Rose Garden post- if I run out, I will also include a few posts on special individual gardens! ; a Favourite Book post- starting with Garden Books of course! ; and a continuing monthly garden post with updates on our garden and building projects.
  5. Help is at hand and the Word Press staff are very helpful if you have any problems and can usually suggest alternative solutions. For example, I had an issue with linking to other websites on the new WordPress, but was able to still do it on the old Word Press Admin page. Fortunately, the problem has finally rectified itself- I think!
  6. Edit several times, including that final moment before you post, as there are always things you miss! Having said that, you can still correct mistakes after you have posted and update the post. Also, always check your sharing button is still current, if you post on Facebook as well.

And finally:

What I Have Learnt About Myself!

  1. I LOVE research and writing, though I already knew that!
  2. I find it really hard to be selective, especially when it comes to word count and photographs!
  3. I am still safety conscious and not very adventurous when it comes to the digital world! I like stability and once I have a format and layout, with which I am happy, I tend to stick with it, rather than experiment. I am sure there are lots of nifty techniques to increase my readership, but since I write predominantly for myself and my family, it is not my primary concern, though I do enjoy attracting new followers and connecting with the blogging community.
  4. I can be obsessive and need to curb any addictive tendencies and restrict my blogging to certain days, otherwise I could probably blog forever and never get anything else done!
  5. I have greatly improved my computer skills and even though I still get the occasional stressful moment, I have discovered that everything is usually retrievable and fixable, even if you have to use a roundabout way to achieve the desired results.

I would highly recommend blogging to anyone who likes writing and photography! My life has certainly been enriched in the process!

My Answers

  1. What inspired you to start writing a blog?

Initially, I decided to write my blog as I wanted to document the development of our garden from its beginnings, as well as write about our new life here in Candelo. Jenny also inspired me, as she was just about to start her travel blog as well, so we launched both on the same day at the same time! It has been wonderful having another fellow blogger in the family for all those queries and moral support and encouragement!

Soon, I discovered all the other benefits of blogging like being an ideal way to use all those digital photos and view them in context, as well as keeping family and friends in faraway places informed about all your news, your home and life in general. I discovered that I loved the writing process and it soon became an addictive habit, one which I would now not be without! For me, the best things about blogging are:

  • The researching process
  • Putting it all together to form the finished article- eminently satisfying, as well as a big relief, knowing that you have made the deadline on time!
  • Meeting new like-minded friends in the blogging community and sharing experiences, queries etc

Writing a blog has :

  • Improved my photography skills- I’m much faster at capturing birds and insects on film and I have learnt so much about my camera, though I still struggle with the zoom. I think more about framing my photos and taking specific photos to complement my text. Having said that, I now take so many more photos than I used to and I probably still have to be a little more ruthless about my selections!
  • Improved my writing and editing skills- I am much more aware about my phrasing and grammar and am getting quicker at spotting errors, though I still find that I have to reread a post several times to pick them all up! And I have produced a few books for a very low cost- I now have a recipe book, an index of my favourite gardens, a management reference for my feature plants and a guide to the local area!
  • It has vastly improved my digital skills, from word processing to reducing photo size with Irfan, managing the Word Press site and Facebook!
  • It has strengthened my self-discipline and my organization and time management skills. I like to plan ahead and try to keep ahead by 2 posts if I can so I don’t panic!
  • It has heightened my curiosity, knowledge and appreciation of this beautiful world we are lucky enough to live in from the in-depth examination of our own garden to our beautiful local beaches, farmland, mountains and National Parks to our wonderful home country Australia with its wide diversity of landscapes, environments and natural history and the wider world beyond. As a relatively new resident in this area, I have learnt so much about the local geology, plant life and birds and the special spots.
  • I have discovered more about myself- what really matters to me, what my strengths and weaknesses are, what I love and I have grown with the process.

And finally, in a world that can seem to be full of doom and gloom, it is a wonderful way to focus on the positive and uplifting things in life and the things that are truly important – beauty, creativity, love and happiness and to share your beliefs and make the world a better place.girl-829183_12802. Tell me three things people might not know about you?

After the previous long spiel, I’ll keep this answer brief :

  • I once did a course in decorating Ukrainian Easter Eggs!
  • I tried learning the bagpipes, but I didn’t have enough puff (or dedication obviously!) to keep the bag up!I am an obsessive pixel puzzler!

easter-eggs-637110_12803. Where do you find inspiration for your writing?

Everywhere! Our beautiful garden and all its inhabitants, other people’s amazing gardens, our stunningly beautiful local environment and our precious fragile Earth, nature and  her eco-warriors, inspiring people, current world events and issues, history, books and films, other blogs. Sometimes, if I’m momentarily stumped, I start from  the photos and the text soon flows.

4. How has your attitude to blogging changed over time?

Because we were so busy actually establishing the garden, I didn’t start the blog till September 2015, so initially I posted twice a week to describe all the developments from  the start of our new garden at the beginning of the year. I really enjoyed  writing my blog, until I started to notice that I was positively gobbling up the amount of storage space allocated for photos, even after I had exceeded my free limit and taken up the premium plan, and it all became a bit fraught! I was staring down the barrel of probably having to give up the blog, as I certainly couldn’t justify the cost of the business plan, but then a friend solved the problem. I had been uploading all my photos in their full size- a big mistake and totally unnecessary as Word Press only requires a size of 800mm x 600mm  max, so he introduced me to Irfan, a great way of reducing photo sizes in bulk at a fraction of the time and I had 2 very busy weeks, replacing my original photos with new photos one fifth of the size. A mammoth job, but well worth it, as I reduced my photo storage space to 3 percent of the free Word Press! So all you new bloggers out there, be warned! Even though I probably didn’t need the premium plan this year after all, it is great having my own domain, I do plan to keep this blog going for as long as I can and it now means I can use as many photos as I like without stress- though I promise that I will still try to be selective!!! I now post just once a week on a Tuesday afternoon and vary each week between a feature plant, a favourite (still on the gardens, but eventually will include books, films etc), a monthly garden update and a special place or recipe! And I still love the blogging- it has become part of my life.

5. What’s one of the best places you’ve ever been and why?

A difficult one, as there are so many amazing places and I have loved every one of them. If I have to choose, and excluding our own wonderful country, I would have to say France for its beautiful countryside, its romance, its stylish elegance, its language and  its love of fine food, family and children, beautiful gardens and above all, its roses!!!

6. Name three things you always put in your backpack/suitcase.

My initial response was : camera, diary and a tossup between a guide book and  my latest pixel puzzle book! The camera was a no-brainer as it always goes everywhere with me and my blog relies heavily on my photographs. I have kept a daily diary forever- very useful for later consultation about events, appointments etc for all those blog followers who thought I must have a photographic memory! As you no doubt realize by now, I am an avid researcher, so guidebooks are my bible when travel planning and pixel puzzles are great to do in short periods of time like waiting at the airport, as well as being very addictive, satisfying, brain-stimulating and a good way to get to sleep! But then I started thinking, what about my mobile phone and laptop? Despite my previous Luddite tendencies, I am now totally hooked and could not live without either! So, given that I can research travel destinations, write my blog, read and send emails, make phone calls, Skype, download photos and even play pixel puzzles online and write my diary on my computer (though I still prefer to write my diary by hand), I would have to say : camera, laptop computer and mobile phone, even though I would love to say something more original and exotic! And there you have it- I’m a modern girl in the digital world and am nothing if not practical!

7. Name a few favourite books (preferably travel-related) – I’m always looking for new recommendations!

Sorry Jen, you may already have read these. Can’t get away with much  in a family! Here are my 3 selections:

  • ‘Wayward Women : A Guide to Women Travellers’ by Jane Robinson: I have always loved this book. Lots of short extracts and  interesting history about intrepid women travellers, very inspiring and can be dipped into at random.
  • ‘Full Tilt: Ireland to India with  Bicycle’ by Dervla Murphy: my first travel book I ever read and  so inspiring! A true traveller in every sense of the word, she has written a number of fascinating books, of which this one is the first! Tim Severin and William Dalrymple are also brilliant travel writers.
  • ‘The Lonely Planet Guide to Experimental Travel’ by Rachael Anthony and Joël Henry. Delightfully quirky and zany, this book is unique and offers a number of alternative suggestions to exploring and getting to know a place from different angles, especially if you are on a tight budget! In fact, I think this is the copy I gave you, Jen!!! Keeping it safe while you are travelling!!!2016-06-28 13.05.328. What’s the first thing you do when you arrive in a new place?

Read all the local literature over a cuppa, then collect vast numbers of brochures from the local information centre!2016-06-28 13.01.26

  1. How will your blog look in 5 years time?

Now that’s a tricky one. I know I like to plan ahead, but that far?!! I may have experimented with a different layout, although I really like this one (Penscratch) and I tend to be a bit of a creature of habit when it comes to less familiar territory, especially when I have found one I like! I may have managed to curb my photographic tendencies, but am not promising anything!

  1. How would you describe your travel style?

Organized but flexible, well-researched, intensive. Even though I plan well ahead, I still like to allow extra days for spontaneity, unexpected opportunities, sickness or just the need to relax and take a breather! I like to read everything I can lay my hands on before the trip, so I don’t miss anything I might later regret, but having said that, it all makes much more sense once you have actually visited a place! No matter how long a trip is, I still like to make the most of every day and fit in as much as I can, because we may never return!

11. Any travel goals for 2016?

How I wish! We probably need an income first! Probably local camping trips, garden visits further north when the weather warms up, family visits to Qld!

10 Random Facts about Me

  1. I was an amateur oncologist as a child, swopping shells with collectors in Qld and New Zealand

  4. I’m a dodgy poet when the mood strikes! I love puns and word play!

  6. Beauty, creativity and simplicity are important to me
  7. I am fascinated by the time period 1900-1910 just before the First World War, when so many new things were happening and the world held so much promise. I also love the fashions from that era. Maybe there’s another blog post?!
  8. I love the Art Nouveau period and the Arts and Crafts movement and
  9. If I had my time again, I would be a wildlife photographer!
  10. I am a keen environmentalist and believe we need a major shift in our thinking and the way we do things to conserve our beautiful planet and make it a fairer place to live.
