The a handful of stones widget has been going down well, and more than twenty blogs are now proudly sporting it – have a look at them all (in their fetching rainbow colours) here.
If you haven’t seen the widget yet scroll down and have a look – there it is. Fancy one yourself? Here’s the code and instructions to add it to your blog.
I’m enjoying my week of no-other-work-except-writing (and an occasional soupcon of blogging). The weather has been rather glorious, and I’ve had to keep on top of the tomato-plant watering. Don’t you just love the sweet musty smell of tomato plants?
Now – who’s going to bake me a slice of that rainbow cake and have it sent over for my elevenses?
Wouldn’t it be lovely if a widget were a kind of bird? ‘I saw a Great Spotted Widged this morning, her blue and green wings were stunning’.
I did see a widget this morning of the ‘a handful of stones’ variety, and it was perched on the side-bar of Planting Words. Scroll down… scroll down… see it?
Every day it will automatically update itself with a small stone written by a different author, direct from my blogzine a handful of stones. Clever, eh?
It was written by Gary Wilson, who has contributed some lovely stones to the blogzine in the past, and who blogs at Writing Dramatica. And you can get your very own widget, blue and green wings and all, by following the instructions here. It’s free! Here’s the link again (because I’m very excited about it) tadaaaa!
Many thanks to Gary, and hip hip hurray for widgets.
My blogzine a handful of stones has been publishing a small stone every day since the beginning of September now.
I’d love to you join our group on Facebook if you haven’t already, and think about submitting. Here are a few of my favourites from the last few months. Enjoy with your morning coffee.
a gust of wind scattering rooks over the hospital
abandoned in the snow
voices from around the fields
and the ticking sound of olives hitting ladders
black olives in yellow boxes
the little red robin is angry
the olive tree looking larger in the moonlight
- little blue owl
Rumbling ghost train tunnel of blue feathers
Have happy Fridays.
