March 18, 2015

Blog Followers

Occasionally I find it useful to take stock of where I am in the ‘wild’ world of blogging : )

I noticed, as I was constructing something for today, that this is my 900th post …. (which means I’ve only another 100 to go to reach a real milestone). I’m delighted that the Fishink ‘appreciative family’ is growing daily, here’s a few numbers that you might find interesting to know.

Fishink Likes Twitter Followers

A cool 569 of you are following Fishink and therefore receive a personal post to your inbox every time I publish an article on my blog.

Also we now have 800 followers on Facebook, and a staggering 1,450 on Twitter !! Impressive eh ?

Of course this wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for you fine folk who regularly tune in, comment, and help spread the word, please keep doing just that, it’s great to hear from you and to read your thoughts and comments, and helps make the lonely task of post writing much more fun : )

Don’t forget you can also help out by spreading the news about Fishink Blog to your friends or by buying a little something from the Fishink shop too, believe me every little helps : )

Ok, onwards and upwards for this weeks Mid Week Mix.

Since about 2008, I’ve been collecting images from the internet that have caught my eye. Way back then, I wasn’t so diligent in keeping records as to where images came from, or who had painted, photographed, illustrated or indeed created the artwork in the image. So I apologise in advance for their lack of referencing, but to be honest, it was purely about seeing groups of imagery together, that for whatever reason, I enjoyed.

As I have managed to amass quite a few of these ‘collaged sheets’, I thought I would share them with you, in the hope that they may also provide some inspiration to you the readers, from their shape, colour, texture or out and out randomness : )

    Oh, I love the tiny quilt idea. Wouldn’t that be fun? Otherwise, I like all the images for one reason or another.
