The Shamelessly Promotional Post

The Shamelessly Promotional Post

Firstly, apologies. It’s incredibly rude to have been away a while and then come back to promote a little business venture but I’ve been semi- productive during lockdown and now have a new page!

After thinking about it for a while and bolstered by the feedback of at least three people, I’ve decided to offer some of my photo art for sale.

Taking some tentative steps into this marketing malarkey, I’ve set up a new page on Facebook: Aloada Bobbins’ Creative Design where you can purchase greeting cards and (eventually) larger Giclée prints.

Here’s a preview of what to expect – some images you may even recognise!

So, if you’re on Facebook or know someone who might be in need of something to brighten up a wall space, then please pop along, take a look and spread the word!

You can follow along by clicking HERE.

(If you’re outside the UK but are still interested in purchasing something, just drop me a message and I can let you know about postage options.)

MY 2017 FILM FEAST: Sept-Dec (Starring: My Top 10 of the Year!)

MY 2017 FILM FEAST: Sept-Dec (Starring: My Top 10 of the Year!)

In 2016, I made a note of every film we’d watched throughout the year and shared them in a post at the end of December. It seemed to be fairly well received and it also helped us review a year through a different medium.

So I decided to do it again. Except this time, due to the entire year being quite a gargantuan task, I intended to compile a post quarterly. And then we got to April…then the end of April…and I realised I’d missed my fraction window!

So instead, here’s the FINAL installment of a trilogy – because every good film comes in threes, right?! (Please don’t start giving me examples of when this hasn’t worked – there are far too many!)

However, it’s later than last year’s counterpart (but then I was MIA for a while) and we’re already into the third week of 2018. But it’s the beginning of award season and a good time to finish the line-up and tell you what MY TOP 10 FILMS of 2017 were!

When the Curvy Lady Belts Out a Tune…

It’s over.

Perhaps.

Perhaps not.

You see, I’m in a quandary, in regards to Aloada Bobbins. I think it may be time to throw in the metaphorical towel but I know that I’ll regret it if I do. However, it’s quite clear to anyway who pays half an ounce of attention to my little site that the posts have dwindled dramatically over recent months.

Bother it and blast. What to do?

MY 2017 FILM FEAST: May-Aug

MY 2017 FILM FEAST: May-Aug

Last year, I made a note of every film we’d watched throughout the year and shared them in a post at the end of December. It seemed to be fairly well received and it also helped us review a year through a different medium.

So I decided to do it again. Except this time, due to the entire year being quite a gargantuan task, I intended to compile a post quarterly. And then we got to April…then the end of April…and I realised I’d missed my fraction window!

So instead, here’s the second installment of a trilogy – because every good film comes in threes, right?! (Please don’t start giving me examples of when this hasn’t worked – there are far too many!)

I thought, as it was almost October, that I should get on with the summer reviews, when we enjoyed / endured another 16 films – fairly low by our standards, but I’m blaming the late release of Game of Thrones for it!

If you’d like to see what we were watching in the first third of the year, you can check it out HERE.

Tuesday TWOsday!

Tuesday TWOsday!

It’s true, I’ve turned TWO…
BLOGGING,
An endeavour that saw me…
SLOGGING.
Over keyboard to empty thoughts in my…
HEAD,
Igniting fears of ‘Will this be…
READ?’
Yet my Field of Posts I wrote and you…
CAME,
A small, cheery gathering, my own piece of…
FAME.

Friendships formed over thousands of…
MILES,
Shared stories, images, teardrops and…
SMILES.
Discovering new authors, musicians…
ARTS,
Talented people, creative…
HEARTS.
Some stopped by for a…
MOMENT,
Others still here…
TODAY.
Many I miss, ending sites along the…
WAY.

To begin my own theme took me a…
WHILE,
It’s random at best, I have my own…
STYLE.
A natural faddist, this you already…
KNOW,
My attention span embarrassingly…
LOW.

So, the fact I have have made it this far…
THROUGH,
Over 200 posts is all down to…
DEREK (I’m kidding, YOU!!)
I can’t thank you enough for entering my…
WORLD,
A love for writing, once again…
UNFURLED.

I hope you’ll continue to enjoy each…
WORD,
As Aloada adventures on to the…
THIRD.
Yes, it’s true, I’ve turned TWO,
IN BLOGGING.
IN BLOGGING, happy ‘blog’day to me!
