All is progressing perfectly with the event. I’m happy I kept it cozy, there’s always a lot of work that goes in behind the scenes, a select number of participants means it’s a joy for me 😀
I’ve been in contact with everyone except fidonfluffy.com – please can you get in touch so we can either get started or elect a replacement. I’ll also drop you an email.
New Guest Blogger
I am electing a replacement at this stage because one of the my winners is busy with a prior commitment and won’t be able to take part within the current timescales. So I’m inviting saylingaway.wordpress.com for a guest blog spot here on DonCharisma.org. She has been on my radar as a regular commenter, but it was just the luck of the draw that she’s dropped off the list momentarily when I was setting the current winners. She’s actually back in my top 5 now anyway 😀 … She’s a lovely lady and I’m really looking forward to seeing what she comes up with.
We’ve received an anonymous donation in response to my request for funds to help with expenses of the blog. Specifically my saving up for new camera and computer hardware renewals. I’m very thrifty so donations do go a lot further than one might think. We are very thankful to the donor, it came out of the blue and it’s lovely to see generosity – random acts of kindness are inspiring 😀
I’ve come to realise that donors often wish to remain anonymous, and discretion is important on both sides. So if you’d like to donate to us (remaining 100% anonymous and discrete) please use a page I’ve created specially (you won’t find link anywhere else) – DonCharisma.org gift page
Team Charisma World People – Being The Dream
Here’s what we’ve been up to –
idiotwriting.wordpress.com – we’re working on a joint post of the masculine and feminine perspectives on that slightly illusive topic of “presence”. Format is “creative writing”
zyoshiko.wordpress.com – she likes her poetry, so we’ve been working on a poem, inspired by one of my as yet unreleased photos. Format is “visually inspired poetry”
swo8.wordpress.com – she loves her music, so we’ve been working on a Christmas tune, with it’s inspiration in a folksy/bluesy tune from the 60s. We’re hoping to publish before Christmas. Format is “music – Christmas’ey rag”.
It’s all progressing beautifully. I’m very happy with my winners. I’m also very happy with the relaxed pace we’ve set, it’s good I feel for the work/life balance of all involved.
Looking forward to publishing the finished submissions shortly here on DonCharisma.org – watch this space !
