Pingback links are fun, especially when they belong to wonderful people who have great ideas, stories to tell, thoughts, activities, hobbies, knowledge, feelings to share in a blog. I appreciate their constant writing, their likes, interesting comments, and the blogging interaction we are building day by day.

So, from now on I am going to make one or two posts a month with some awesome pingback links of my followers in WordPress.

Blogging Goals Learning Inspiring Why Do You Blog?


I am a blogger because I love writing, photographing, communicating with other people who are like-minded, exchanging ideas, teaching others what I know, and learning from others’ mental and soul wonders so we can all share, connect, inspire and grow.

Educating myself and advancing in my blogging is what I have decided today, that is why I want to set some goals and share them with my followers, contacts, family, and friends:

  1. Blogging at least 3 times a week
  2. Interacting more often with my followers
  3. Increasing my followers count
  4. Motivating comments in my blog
  5. Commenting more often in my followers blog

Happy blogging everyone!

5 Food Rarities to Like or Dislike – Weird Ingredients Would You Eat? 😨

FOOD RARITIES with odd ingredients:

Food rarities: to eat or not to eat, that is the question! 🤣😁😆😅

I found these rare combinations of foods in the inter-webs.

People just posted these pics without describing the ingredients and what to do with them. And for the life of me, I couldn’t find the name of them anywhere. I was wondering if any of you know what kind of food this is and if you would eat it!

I was wondering who eats this kind of ingredients and the combination of them. 

I usually eat everything, normal, common and some rare food, but these are way over my league.


I like to try food from all over the world and experiment different flavors. But these foods look too weird, even for me who has tried it almost all!

New Blogger Day in WordPress: Contemplation Adorable Chickens and More!



I find this post by Michele Pruitt so cute, I couldn’t resist to show you her pictures and what she is all about in her new blog: Contemplation

But before I share with you one of the brand new posts, I want to welcome her to this wonderful world of blogging in WordPress.



                            CHICKENS IN THE YARD



I love having chickens in the backyard. Besides being interesting, noisy, and colorful, they provide my family with delicious eggs. It is also amazing to watch a hen sit on her eggs and hatch baby chicks!



Chickens do have personalities that are unique, some let you carry them around while others like to sit on your shoulder. They even get along with cats!



Overall, I like all kinds of birds, but i do love having and caring for chickens.

Breaking Record again in My WordPress Blog Posts 149 Likes in One Day!

Let’s see, I have been writing blog posts since 2005. But it was in 2008 when I discovered WordPress and since then this platform has been my digital home. Of course, the domain has changed through out the years, but it is until recently that I found the perfect domain name for me. I like the way it is and I am planning to keep it the same.

Who writes a blog and doesn’t pay attention to the “likes” one receives? The more your blog is read the better is for you, unless you are writing a private blog for another purpose.

So, I am proud to announce that yesterday WordPress notified me that I broke my old record of 148 per day. I got 149, which makes me want to write more often, be consistent with my blog, promote it, interact with all of you, be grateful with all my followers for their loyalty through out the years. Thank you!

Posts I Like

Everytime I LIKE a post in my WP Reader, it shows it automatically in the widget. Also, it links to the blog post of the blogger I am following. Great for marketing, right
