Today I’m posting a different kind of post to my usual one as I am joining up with the Grow your Blog Party hosted by Vicki over at the 2 Bags Full blog. The idea is to link up and visit Vicki’s blog where she is listing all the party goers so you can visit as many new blogs as you can. I’d like to thank her for being such a fabulous host. For my part I am supposed to tell you a bit about myself and my blog.
Hello and welcome! My name is Alison and I’m based in the UK. You can also read more on my About page. This is one of two blogs I have, both of which are taking part in Vicki’s party. This particular blog, Scene by Minerva, is just for photos whilst my other blog, Minerva’s Meanderings is mainly about my crafting efforts and more mundane things. This blog has very few words (which is why this is an unusual post for me), whilst my other one is where I publish what I have to say! Minerva’s Meanderings was my first foray into the world of blogging a little over a year ago and whilst taking photos for my posts there, my love of photography was rekindled and hence Scene by Minerva was born. This blog is only a mere 6 months old.
I photograph anything that takes my fancy from scenery to close-ups of flowers and I take part in a few photography challenges set by other bloggers. I’m currently undertaking a 365 project which means taking at least one photo every day to post. For this I’m also joining up with the 365project.org to keep me on track. I have a couple of cameras – a Canon DSLR and a small Panasonic point and shoot – it’s mainly the latter that takes all the photos as it’s the camera that’s small enough to fit in my handbag and go everywhere with me!
So why don’t you grab yourself a drink from the side, take a hand full of nibbles and just mingle with the other guests and take a look around – you might find something here that takes your fancy. If not, then why not visit one of the other blogs taking part and see if there’s something there that interests you instead – I’m sure they’d be delighted to see you!
Thanks for taking the time to pop in and I hope you enjoyed your visit, why not leave me a comment to say you dropped in and hopefully you’ll come back to visit again soon.
