How NOT to make money or get a gazillion views in your first month of blogging – or even your first six years!! Why? Why are so many bloggers’ lives so skewed towards making money quickly or getting a gazillion views/followers in a short amount of time? I am getting quite tired of seeing all these types of posts.  Pinterest is…

What’s in a name? – Weekly Photo Challenge

Let me introduce myself –  my name is Debbie or more formally Deborah.  Hello, I’m pleased to meet you 🙂 My daughters and other friends have called me Debs for quite some time now, so when I started blogging it seemed like a good idea to call my blog Deb’s World. I received this personalised jar of Vegemite (an Australian delicacy)…

Meeting a blogging friend for real!

I have followed Desleyjanes’s blog , Musings of a frequently flying scientist, for ages – I’ve  admired her beautiful photos, her creativity, I’ve loved her stories, enjoyed her posts about Gidget her dog,  felt her initial pain when she moved from her family in Brisbane to Melbourne, smiled to myself when she started feeling settled in her new city, joined in…

Education beats crime

Education beats crime every day

I know I’ve mentioned it before on my blog (Not a good week, Wednesday 11/5/16, and this BuzzFeed interview) but I thought I’d share my latest foray into speaking out about this very important issue.  I was interviewed by a local TV station during the week and I don’t know about you but I really don’t like watching or hearing myself. Despite my insecurities I’m quite…

Blogging thoughts

Apparently I registered my Deb’s World blog 4 years ago – who would have thought I’d still be here?!  I have no reason to doubt the scrupulous record keeping of WordPress but gee whiz that time has really flown by! I do remember writing some early posts and deleting them a short time later so my first recorded post is…

Tumba-bloody-Rumba

Warning: this post is about the closest I’ll ever get to writing something political. Paint the town orange someone said – so we did. Orange streamers, ribbons and signs adorn every signpost and fence – orange being the colour of harmony. Get a celebrity on board to help get the message out there someone suggested – so we did. Watch this comedian put…
