  1. I love the idea of spending time cultivating the beautiful, and even more intriguing, what you perceive as beautiful as opposed to others, be it the rose or the dandelion. Lovely ideas! Thanks for choosing to follow along with Wine and Cheese (Doodles).

  2. I am glad you liked my review of “The Village”. You will enjoy reading it. I am glad you are now following my blog. I will review in the not to distant future “In The Beginning”. I know it is not your faith, but it is a history of the King James Bible. The perspective on publishing, and English history is an interesting facet of the book.

  3. Thank you for visiting me and following my blog. I enjoy combining poetry and photography. It seems to work well as you probably find as well as you are creating in a similar fashion. I am now following you and look forward to more of your poetry and photography.

  4. I like it! Beauty is a very precious quality to me, and as I write this I want to share with you the words of a short song I first heard through Sandra Ingerman, but I think it originates in the Native American tradition.
    May you walk in beauty in a sacred way,
    may you walk in beauty each and every day,
    may the beauty of the fire lift your spirit higher,
    may the beauty of the earth fill your heart with mirth,
    may the beauty of the rain wash away your pain,
    may the beauty of the sky teach your mind to fly.

  5. Hello Beautiful! Nice to meet you. I’ve been poking around your beautiful blog – so simple and inspiring.
    Thank you for visiting and for following our blog. I hope you enjoy the stories of our adventures, both inner and outer.

  6. Thanks so much for enjoying my “story-in-the-making,” Rosebud. 🙂 I guess having three children inspires me to write children’s stories – They are my critics!!! All the best, and I look forward to reading and exploring your wonderful blog.

  7. Beauty is a lost art. The 1960s and 1970s hippies trashed the traditional definition of beauty, substituting instead, au natural, lowest common denominator, I’m OK you’re OK, lazy, ugly and boring. Audrey Hepburn vs. Ellen Degeneres; Albert Bierstadt vs. Andy Warhol; Empire State Building vs. Liberty Tower; Bach vs. 50 Cent, Worth vs. Betsy Johnson, etc. etc. etc. Beauty must be actively pursued and it takes effort, passion and talent. So glad you are helping to bring this loss back to life. Thank you for following my blog.

  8. Love your positivity…if everyone used the same philosophy and looked for the beautiful rather than the bad in everybody they encountered, the world really would be a better place!

  9. Hi- Thank you for following my photography blog, Jane’s Lens. I hope you are inspired. Love the theme of your blog…I try to look for beauty in all things every day. Words to live by!

  10. hi,

  11. Thank you so much for your follow. Just to let you know I have needed to rename my blog and can be found at ‘Spinning Plates and Staying Sane’ now if you are still interested. Still the same focus – just had to change my blog location and username.

    Just to let you know I read your most recent post about Inspirational and Beautiful Women. Funnily enough I have been researching this exact topic with my daughter today for her school project! Perfect timing 🙂 Thank you. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    • That’s awesome! Congratulations on your new blog. Keep writing! I look forward to your posts.

      🙂 Thanks for the fantastic comment, by the way! So sweet and sincere. You sound like a really wonderful person. Good job for researching with your daughter. It’s good to be aware of all the awesome people in the world. Hope the article posted helped in research. I support educational learning 100%… or any learning, as a matter of fact! 😀

  12. Thank you for discovering my photography blog http://www.throughharoldslens.com. You gave me the opportunity to discover, explore and follow your blog. Hope we both enjoy our journeys. On behalf of the Through Harold’s Lens Creative Team, my trusty sidekick Mr. SLR Nikon, his brother Mr. Pen Pal and myself, we wish you the best.


  13. Hi there!
    Thanks for following. I’m a happy camper now you are joining me as I trip around by RV, plane, car and time machine to the past.
    Comments, compliments, critiques and wisecracks are most welcome.
    You have a great blog. “See” you again soon.

  14. Thank you so much for the follow and Welcome Aboard to my wee blog. If you have any suggestions or requests just let me know. Like yourself I am enchanted by everyday beauty. MM 🍀

  15. Its an excellent point of view to focus on beautiful! Also thank you for the follow. Please be aware that my blog is a bilingual one. So you may get links to some poems in English as well as to some in Italian… Pictures, on the other hand, have no language barriers 😉
    Keep up the good work.

  16. How I appreciate your following my “Randa Lane…” haiku blog! I am honored. After exploring your site for only a few minutes, I now happily and with joy follow you wherever the path should go. *** 🙂 ***


  17. Love the idea of your blog, especially among all of the negative things to be found on the web. Good job! Thanks for checking out my blog and for the follow xLaura

  18. Interesting blog. Looking for the beauty in all things, including oneself is a “Beautiful” concept. Thanks for the follow. As I always sign off: Have a Beautiful day. 🙂

  19. Audrey Hepburn is a wise woman. True beauty lies within. When one feels good on the inside and has a lovely spirit; that type of “beauty” shines outward, making one look as good as she feels. I’m hoping to empower women in some way, big or small, through some of my blog posts.

  20. Hello BBBB! Apologies for not getting back to you before now. Popping by to thank you so very much for Following me. That’s really sweet of you and much appreciated.

  37. hey there BBB! thanks for the “follow”…i enjoyed reading your “about”…i like the way you think! looking forward to browsing yours as well 😉

  38. Est vrai ce qui est beau. (Nothomb heavily inspired by Plato: is true what is beautiful!)
    Nice blog. Will come back. Thanks for following.
    Have a week full of Beauty! 🙂

  39. I want to say a belated “thank you” for following “A Way With Words.” I find great joy in writing that is only surpassed when someone reads what I’ve written. As you’ll see, I write primarily about faith and mental illness, but I’m known to cover other topics on occasion as well as share a few stories (fiction and non-fiction), so if you have any suggestions, just let me know.

    I appreciate your positive spirit. I pray you are blessed in your life and blogging.

  40. Very interesting concept for a blog – I look forward to reading through yours! And thanks so much for the follow… always nice to have new people around mynuttydubai 🙂

  42. Thank you for following my blog! Interesting topics you’ve covered. I really like that helpful graph of food substitutions as I love to cook. Looking forward to more!

  43. My problem is that you are what you think, and you are what you eat, are in heavy competition! The latter seems to get the best of the former.

    But, inner beauty? There you are!

    Thank you for visiting my online writing studio, and for opting to follow my work.


  44. Great idea for a blog. You are beautiful if you think you are. You’ve already shown how beautiful you are from the inside by starting this blog. 🙂 Stay beautiful, beautiful!

  45. Love your outlook. The name of your blog is great -I sang that song in Kindergarted on “Romper Room” a tv show, so I’m very fond of it.

  46. Such a lovely idea for a blog! We all need to appreciate the beauty in the world around us much more, instead of only seeing the negatives…Thankyou for stopping by my blog ~ I look forward to reading your wonderful posts 🙂

  56. Hey there Newbie Spikey!
    (for your info, a Spikey is the term for folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    I wanted to catch up and say “thank you… I really appreciate your ‘follow’ as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.”

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…


  57. It is nice to be in contact with you. Somehow you found the blog where I write about photography. Now that I know about you I will spend some time reading your thoughts and looking at your pictures as I get to know you.

  59. Hello BBBB Blogger, I hope this finds you doing well.

    I see you have been a follower my blog “A Way With Words.” Great! Thank you.

    My blog has now transformed into, “Delight in Disorder: Faith & Mental Illness” (delightindisorder.org). As a man of faith who has wrestled with bipolar disorder, I’m looking to shatter stigma with stories.

    I hope you will join me there.

    Take care & God bless,
