Hey, Hello, Hi & Howdy,
Do you think the colour blue is confusing to an ant? Did six really cry when seven eight nine? How much does that polar bear really weigh and is it enough to break the ice?
My sincere thanks to Family Furore [Kat] for her nomination of The Tee Shirt Blogger for the Blogger Recognition Award. If anyone is humbled, then l would have to say it is l – l am l should imagine like many other bloggers always a little surprised when someone suggests that your writing style is relatable or rewarding of something to their lives, that you have made them smile, or stop and think and above everything – that they can see that THEY are never truly alone.
Which leads me into talking about Kats’ Family Furore blog – starting with the name itself as a description which is so apt and more so to any of you, who like myself also suffer with bipolar – an outbreak of emotion. I have been following the journey of both Jessie and Kat, as daughter and Mother for quite a few months now, but have come to appreciate the posts and the writing on the wall concerning mental health. I am indeed an advocate of this, as a society we need to talk openly about both our journeys and our stories which walk so very much hand in hand.
At times the reads themselves can be harrowing, but what l love about the blog is the rawness of the deliverance of the content. many people sadly fail to recognise the work, patience and love of the carers to those who suffer at the minds of poor mental health. If you ‘don’t’ already Follow, then please do, it is totally worth taking the journey together.
So once again Kat, my sincere thanks.
The Tee Shirt Blogger focuses on diversity in the main, and rather the celebration of diversity, in many ways it is no different to my other blogs, l love the intrinsic rawness and freshness that eclecticism offers us in life for all the good, bad and of course downright ugly.
The posts mostly are focused on the designs l have to offer, but equally l have a certain amount of freestyling writing. I have passions in my autism, Aspergers’ Syndrome, service dogs, animals and their welfare, animal cruelty, the environment in which we live and seem hell bent on destroying and of course mental health, taboo and stigmas.
