How I made friends with Pinterest

social media

Since retiring in January 2017, I have had lots more time to spend on blogging, social media and learning new skills.  I know that as you age you are supposed to keep your brain busy, so I treated my blogging/social media as if I was learning a new language. I was in fact learning a …

A family of bloggers

Melanie

I just want you to know that I enjoy blogging immensely. I might not be the most prolific of bloggers, the most read, tweeted or visited blogger in the world, but I am a happy blogger! As someone wise said to me earlier this week, 'The thing to remember about blogging is that there is …

Blog of the Day: Deb’s World

Great to read Suzie’s comments about my blog in her Blog of the Day post! She has managed to sum up my blog in just a few paragraphs and I appreciate her support and encouragement:
I love everything about Debbie’s blog – the layout, the photographs, the topics… there is so much that I can personally relate to and I love her honesty and openness about her life experiences and things that she enjoys. In particular, I’m very jealous of the images that she shares of the places that she has seen – I’ve certainly added a few places to my bucket list because of her post.
And yet, for someone so talented, she is incredibly modest and a lovely person – she’s been an integral part of my Facebook group since it began and her comments and support of others have been instrumental in it’s growth.
Thanks again Suzie 🙂

Meet Debbie, the creator of Deb’s World.

As a lifestyle blogger, she has one of the most interesting ‘About Me’ pages that I’ve ever seen. Here’s just a small selection…

I am Debbie – I am a wife; mother; daughter; sister; friend; blogger; reader; runner; walker; cyclist; Rail Trail enthusiast; traveller; Rotarian; Whovian; teacher.

And now I’m a retiree!!  Very early retirement!

I have three beautiful daughters who are all grown up and making their own way in the big wide world. I like to write about my family…

I am into keeping healthy and have learnt how to run again. I feel fantastic as a result of my efforts and I sometimes blog about my  running journey.

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 …

Books and a cuppa

This is a great post by Shelley Wilson and I’m not biased at all! If you enjoy reading I’m sure you can relate to this in some way. Check out Shelley’s great blog and you might like to be involved/featured just like I was in this segment.

I Write. I Read. I Review

Here on the Reader Spot, I share the bookish love of our avid book reviewers. From young adult to historical romance, chick-lit to a murder mystery, they know what they like, and they’re happy to share.  Whether you are a reader looking for a new book, or a writer wondering what your reader wants, I hope you find this series enjoyable.

Next up to the Reader Spot is the very lovely, Debbie Harris. Find her beautiful book review blog HERE.

debbie-harris-debs-world-blogWhat genre do you enjoy reading?

I enjoy reading just about anything – mainly fiction, YA, fantasy, apocalyptic drama, time travel, historical fiction, crime thrillers (especially Scandinavian Noir lately) – if it can grab me in the first few pages then I’ll stick with it. One book I just couldn’t get into was the Life of Pi, although I did enjoy the movie years later. I rarely give up on…

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 …

Education beats crime every day

Education beats crime

The importance of Education in jails 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 …

Not a good week! 

Wonder Woman

It seems I'm more political than I thought! I'm also very angry! I've rarely shared information about my work on my blog but this week I have well and truly broken that self imposed ban. And for a very good reason. This week we were informed that our jobs, as educators within correctional centres across …

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 …
