Party All Night Long

2021 has been an odd year for so many people. Add on the knocks you would have received anyhow and those that came courtesy of the new world we are having to live in, and, I expect most of us will want to cheer off 2021 in the hope 2022 will be better.

I will admit that this year I have felt differently about many things. The restrictions plus what happened within the blogging community in 2020 have had a knock on effect and I suppose basically left me in a position where I didn’t actually feel totally safe sharing what I wanted to, on my blog. I began to censor what I was posting. This is the reason I have simply loved my time on the Medium platform.

I know many people don’t understand the fascination with Medium. I was like that too. But it soon became a place where I felt safe writing what I wanted to write. Without censoring my feelings or the content within my fiction. It feels like a community, within walls. It has enabled me to regain my community confidence, which hopefully will see me back to sharing more on my blog in 2022. Although, I am a believer that nothing stays the same, and it’s important to evolve. But my blog can help me do that. My space…

Blogable is also evolving. Which I am excited about too.

It’s My Party

New Year’s Eve is seen as party time for so many. Imagine I was having a blogger/writer party, I would certainly want to invite many of those I’ve already met or work with online.

  • These five people – friends/colleagues – would be at the very top of the list. I’ve met two of them and I would LOVE to meet the remaining three.
  • Other bloggers I have already spent a little time with, Eye, Cousin Pons, Missy, HL and Eve, would be there as well. However, there would be a few I’ve met who wouldn’t get past the bouncer 🙂
  • If you are a guy who wears panties – consider your invite in the post.

But then, counting the cards, I see I’ve only 12 invitations left to go to writers I admire and would love to meet… Here’s who’d they’d be sent to.

Dirty Dozen

  1. Jor Adams – A wonderfully creative and special person.
  2. Modesty Ablaze – I have total admiration for this woman.
  3. Barefoot – I think she has a pure soul and is a terrific writer.
  4. Snake and Charmer – What a couple. They could dance at my party!
  5. Mrs Fever – A unique writer and generous person.
  6. Marsha Adams – A intricate person and top-notch writer.
  7. Nero Black – A party would not be a party without him!
  8. Kinky Katie – An instinctive writer who I think I would get on with.
  9. Francesca Demont – A fantastic, gorgeous and intelligent human.
  10. Mila – She will always have a special place in my heart.
  11. Brigit Delaney – Kind of fascinates me, and what an amazing fiction writer.
  12. David Mei – I think I’d really enjoy a conversation with David.

Thank you to all who have supported my blog or me over the last few years. It is always appreciated… Where ever you are in the world and what ever you are doing, I wish you a happy new year…

I also have a blog roll of sorts here…

NB: this post was really meant to be ready last week for Marie’s 500th prompt, but it works well enough for this one too…

  1. Thanks for the nice wishes. May the new year bring you only happiness and literary inspiration.
    I may have read this a bit late, but nice words are never superfluous.

  2. Oooh a party! Yes, I will be there, as I still want to share a bottle of wine with you! I can only imagine how special it will be with all these people you have mentioned here! Some of those on your list I have met, others I would absolutely love to meet. Reading your first paragraphs, I realized that ever since ‘that thing’ in 2020, I have been self-censoring too. Some things I just don’t feel comfortable sharing anymore, and I have even taken down blog posts because of this. I know I have said this before, but thank you for putting me onto Medium. I love the platform!

    PS: So glad there will be bouncers at the door 😉

    1. It is not til u think about it that u realise about self censoring – but i dont do that on Medium and I have got to stop doing that here too – TY for being such a wonderful friend Marie x

      1. I never thought about it too, until I read it here and remembered my feelings when writing my post for tomorrow… how I wondered if I should share or not… and the same goes to you, May. Thank you for being my friend! xox

  3. I can totally picture Snake and Charmer dancing at your party. 😉

    I admit I don’t “get” the Medium thing, but I am happy for you that you’ve found a place with a community that feels like your own.

    Happy New Year!

  4. Wow! You’re so generous and creative- fabulous fun post that says thanks & welcome all in same breath. I’d love attending your party- I too would enjoy meeting my fellow guests. I’ve met a handful of them IRL too!

    So glad u joined me on Medium- it does indeed feel a grown up tolerant space to write & share. Here’s to more of your writing reaching even more readers in 2022! Thanks again for my gilt edged invitation 😊

  5. It would be a very long sit and chat I am sure. Might require several meals to get through. And probably last till sunrise. If I didn’t fall asleep while talking.
    Happy New Year!

  6. This is a lovely and imaginative post May which suits you perfectly. I am so pleased that you are doing so well on medium and feeling that it is the safe place you need as an outlet for your writing. I am glad that you are having the success there that you were always due, and long may that continue. Thank you for your friendship over the past years. It means a lot and I am delighted to be on your guest list. Missy xx

    1. TY so much lovely Missy <3 - I think Medium has given me the confidence to be myself again - and there is no point me being anyone else, lol
      TY for being you - and I wish both u and HL a fabulous 2022 xx

  7. It would be an honour to accept your invitation May … perhaps one day literally too !!!
    Always love and admire your writing and creativity … and your seemingly boundless energy.
    You are inspiring, motivating … and always fun to visit.
    Have a lovely, healthy and fun New Years !!!
    Xxx – K

  8. It has been a special year for me, having the opportunity to read it and be enraptured by contemplating its sensual images.
    I want to continue reading it throughout 2022, and go deeper and get to know it a little more.
    Oh and I’ll be happy to wear my best panties to her party. Happy New Year.
