Blog Love: My Manic Moments

November 2018

I have just checked her blog and have seen that the last post was in November 2012. I have no idea what happened. However, I think blogs like this are very important and they are a history of how far we have come and where mental health blogging has started. That is why I re-post this one again.

August 2012

My Manic Moments is following me for 3 months and I feel honoured to have a follower who blogs so honestly about being bipolar and all the challenges that come with it.

Her family is going through tough times and they are just starting over. Please give them support with a visit to her blog My Manic Moments and maybe a little message. Thanks!

I am blogging under a pseudonym about some of my life challenges and so often when someone just left a message or just liked a post it has proven to be empowering and healing to me. Often you do not know what that little gesture means for oneself.

Thanks My Manic Moment for following me!!!!!

November 2018

Ich habe gerade nachgesehen und festgestellt, dass der letzte Eintrag auf diesem Blog vom November 2012 datiert. Ich habe keine Ahnung, was passiert ist. Allerdings denke ich, dass Blogs wie dieser, sehr wichtig sind und zeigen wie weit wir seither gekommen sind aber auch die Geschichte von Bloggern mit psychischen Problemen zeigen. Deshalb veroeffentlich ich diesen Beitrag nochmals.

August 2012

My Manic Moments folgt mir seit 3 Monaten und ich fuehle mich geehrt, dass mir jemand folgt, der so ehrlich ueber ihre Bipolare Stoerung und den Herausforderungen, die damit verbunden sind, bloggt.

Sie und ihre Familie haben gerade harte Zeiten zu ueberstehen und beginnen neu. Bitte gebt Ihnen ein bisschen Unterstuetzung, in dem Ihr ihren Blog  My Manic Moments besucht und vielleicht eine Nachricht hinterlasst. Danke!

Ich blogge unter Pseudonym ueber einige meiner Lebensherausforderungen und  so oft war es fuer mich heilend und foerdend, wenn jemand eine Nachricht hinterlassen hat oder einfach nur einen Eintrag mochte. Ihr wisst oft nicht, was diese kleine Geste fuer einen bedeuten kann.

Danke My Manic Moment fuer’s Folgen!!!!!

I am very happy that Tobbelmoppel follows me since 2 months and 3 weeks. Studying ceramics in Stuttgart Germany as far as I can see this delicious sheep ( that’s referring to the Twitter Avatar ;-)) loves cats and cooking.

The sheep’s blog has many facets from cooking courses with the Stuttgart Volkshochschule to cats and the Universe. A must read really.

Blog Love: TY and her Robin Hood’s Musings

November 2018

I am happy to find that her blog is still running and I am following her now with this blog. This post was first published in July 2012.

July 2012

Her blog makes me smile. I survived a few hours of religious Christian education and that not because my family urged me to but because I wanted to. Chaotic family situation urges a child to find some normality and guidance. Christianity certainly gave me that. But there are certain believes in conservative Christian believe that goes totally against my soul and so I started to go another path.

TY though has a loving but humorous look on all things Christian and many articles from the “Holy Post”. She gives brilliant comments and her blog “A Robin Hood’s Musing” is definitely worth a look.

Thanks for following me for so long!

Ich bin froh, dass es ihren Blog noch gibt und folge ihm nun mit diesem Blog. Dieser Beitrag wurde zum ersten Mal im Juli 2012 veroeffentlicht.

Ihr Blog bringt mich zum Laecheln. Ich habe einige Stunden an christlicher Erziehung ueberlebt nicht, weil ich meine Familie mich dazu gebracht haette sondern, weil ich es wollte. Chaotische Familiensituationen zwingen ein Kind dazu irgendwo Normalitaet und Fuehrung zu suchen. Das Christentum hat mir das definitiv gegeben. Allerdings gibt es Dinge in konservativem Christentum, das total gegen meine Seele geht und so habe ich spaeter einen anderen Weg gewaehlt.

TY hat allerdings einen sehr liebevollen und humorvollen Blick auf alles christliche und viele Artikel von der “Holy Post”. Sie ist eine grossartige Kommentatorin und ihren Blog  “A Robin Hood’s Musing” muss man besuchebn.

Another great blog to discover and to follow but this time for travel and photography lovers. Please, check Nelieta out 🙂

She is with me for two months and I am so glad I met her in that little photography group on Facebook that we both have joined.

Such a caring and cheerful person. Her blog entries in Nelmitravel make me laugh, smile, think and want to travel. And they inspire me!

She travels and takes photos and shows parts of the world from a very personal point of view.

Thanks Nelieta for following!!!!!!

Blog Love: Ash Silverlock’s Fabulous Realms

November 2018

It is really interesting which blogs still exist that followed my old one years ago. And also which ones have gone private or just moved on. This one is great for any reader interested in fantasy and music. Please check him out

June 2012

He follows me for 3 months and I suspect he is as imaginative as his blog which teaches you about Fantasy, Folklore, Myth and Legend. That is a well of knowledge and inspiration for every Fantasy writer.

Definitely worth having a look and to follow :-): Fabulous Realms

Thanks Ash Silverlock for the follow!

Es ist wirklich interessant zu sehen, welche Blogs, die mir auf meinem alten Blog folgten, immer noch existieren. Es ist auch interessant welche jetzt privat sind und welche nicht mehr existieren. Dieser Blog ist grossartig fuer jeden Leser, der an Fantasy und Musik interessiert ist. Bitte besucht seinen Blog.

Juni 2012

(Links in diesem Beitrag sind in englischer Sprache)

Er folgt mir seit 3 Monaten und ich vermute, dass er so phantsievoll ist, wie sein Blog, der ueber Fantasy, Folklore, Mythos und Legende informiert. Damit ist er eine grosse Informationsquelle und Inspiration fuer jeden Fantasy Autoren.

Es ist definitiv gut, ihn mal zu besuchen und zu folgen :-): Fabulous Realms

Danke Ash Silverlock fuers Folgen!

WANA? What is that?

November 2018

I rejoined WANA at the beginning of the year even though I haven’t used it much yet. But Kirsten Lamb is certainly a coach whose worth to check out:

June 2012

Last week I joined another network. My original thought was to leave Facebook as I am not too happy with their constant changes as well as the questions about data protection.

It felt like a tip from heaven when I read Kirsten Lamb’s blog and her introduction of her WANA-Tribe. It is a network located on Ning and WANA means “WE ARE NOT ALONE”. It was created to connect artists with each other as it is often difficult for them to find a “family” who understand them. So many still think it is just “Hobby” and you should not earn money with it. And what shall I say? I love it. As I am a busy bee doing loads of things I have not spend as much time there as I wanted to but I feel like I will stay.

There are more writers for now but it is supposed to be for all artists. So if you are a painter, dancer, choreographer, photographer … please feel free to join as well and bring more balance to WANA. 🙂

I have started a little photography group and I quite like it. It is so nice to share pictures but also experiences. If you want to have a look just follow this link: My Camera and me ~ a photography group. (I have left Ning since so that group does not exist anymore)

1 & 1 = 1

October 2018

These lovely people followed one of my old blogs. That deserves a shout-out!!!!/ Diesen netten Menschen folgten einem meiner alten Blogs und das verdient einen Post!!!!!

October 2012

No, I have not become cryptic even though I try really really hard ;-).

Today I wanted to introduce you to itsmeiiKaii’s blog but unfortunately, Bt cannot find it. Well then I am sorry but I have to go on and introduce you to the inspiring poetry of That Dude Eddie which always makes me smile. And that is what makes 1&1 = 1 🙂

But it is not only funny or happy poetry. It stirs a lot more than that. “That Dude Eddie Blog” definitely worth visiting.

Thanks for the follow.

Nein meine Worte werden noch nicht kryptisch auch wenn ich mich wirklich sehr darum bemuehe ;-).

Heute wollte ich eigentlich itsmeiiKaii’s Blog vorstellen aber ungluecklicherweise kann  Bt ihn nicht finden. Tja dann tut es mir leid aber ich muss Euch die inspirierende Lyrik von That Dude Eddie vorstellen, die mich immer zum Laecheln bringt.

Aber sie ist nicht nur lustig oder schoen. Sie regt sehr viel mehr an:  “That Dude Eddie Blog” ist einen Besuch wert.

Und so wurde 1 & 1 = 1 😉

Music Monday Blog Party: Celebrate YOUR Life

Last week I tried out a “Music Monday Blog Party” on my old self-hosted blog. Even though I did not get a lot of feedback on my question if other bloggers wanted it to be a regular feature I have decided to make it one.

The main reason for this is what Emilia over at My Inner MishMash said:

“…and I agree with Bee that we do need to celebrate our lives, and that we – as people, but particularly in my opinion, we as people struggling with all kinds of mental illnesses, should think about celebrating more often – we think so often about how we hate our lives so that I feel like we often just forget to think about how much is there to celebrate…”

It’s probably not only bloggers living with a mental health condition who do not celebrate their achievements and the blessings in their life enough. And it feels like such a good way to start the week.

However, I won’t only do it for a day. That seems much too short as we all live in different time zones.

So I decided to have the party open until Wednesday afternoon. What do you think?

I invite you to celebrate your life and your work with anything you feel you like to celebrate it with: put some extra make-up on, chose your favourite jumper, have an extra cup of tea, coffee, glass of wine, sing a song… You’ll find something I am sure 🙂 .

MusicMondayBlogParty

Then write a post about it and add a song that makes you feel like celebrating. Leave the link here and all can come and visit and I add a shout-out post to the mix. The suggestions on how to take part are as follows:

  • I invite you to celebrate your life and your work
  • Do it in any way you like: cup of extra nice coffee, bake a cake, dance, sing or even have a party
  • Write a post about it
  • Add a song either with a video or a link to the song from one of your favourite musicians that gets you in the mood to celebrate (add the lyrics if you want to)
  • Leave your link here in the comments and I visit and post a shout-out-post on “The Bee Writes…”
  • Party-End is Wednesday 2nd of May 2018, 2.56 pm GMT (Time Converter)
  • Come on bloggers let’s party!

I can’t wait to discover some more interesting blogs, bloggers and music!

The Bee Writes… is moving here!

My dear readers,

as you know I have given up my job because I just could not bear it any longer. That was a bit of an impulsive move which was good for my mental health however rather bad for our financial situation.

I am doing a course to be able to teach English online as I would love to work from home but it needs a little to get myself up to speed with the grammar. I can use it but I am not so good yet with explaining it. And I am running out of money.

In May the renewal of my subscription with GoDaddy comes up and in June the renewal of my domain both of which I have just cancelled. Feeding my family comes first I am afraid.

Therefore my self-hosted blog moves back to WordPress.com and to this blog.

The self-hosted blog is up until May 7th, 2018 but I will start blogging here on May 1st, 2018. Who knows what it is good for :-).

If you like to support me & my family then please put some shout-outs out both for my husbands eBay shop here and my t-shirt and mug line here. With buying a t-shirt or mug from my shop you also support the World Literacy Foundation whose work is so important to get literacy to everybody.

Your support is much appreciated!

Welcome

Looking forward to seeing you here with new content on May 1st!
