thoughts from my mind to yours


Celebrating 3000+ Wonderful followers!

Hello Everyone,

I am so happy to share that I have gained over 3000 readers following forgottenmeadows this morning. I started blogging about 3 years ago and I appreciate each and everyone of you who have supported me, from my very first post until now. I could not have asked for a better community or a better group of friends that I have gained in this journey.

Thank you so very much!

Much Love,












P.S: Although it is a great day of celebration, I am facing some woes from wordpress…I just noticed that it had somehow unfollowed  many of my close blogger friends…so if you haven’t seen me on your blog (via likes or comments) for a while, please drop me a message so I can follow again! I have already re-followed a handful!


Over 100,000 Views – Milestone celebration and thank you!

Hello Everyone,

I just saw that forgottenmeadows has been viewed over 100,000 times! I am so grateful for all the visits from each and every one of you!

This was a rough week at work for me so this definitely made my day! This is a post to simply say Thank you! 🙂

Keep the hope alive, keep chasing after dreams, keep the smiles and keep being kind, to one another!

Much love,

Here are the rules:

* Mention the person who tagged you
* Answer the questions in full
* Don’t forget to tag up to ten other bloggers at the end

Here are the questions:

How did you get into blogging?

I got into blogging on a whim. I was not sure about what my blog would be, but I knew that I wanted to write. I had always enjoyed writing, and poetry is where I had found solace in words. This piece I wrote share what I hope my words will find: Let me find hope. So I wrote…Needless to say, I was overwhelmed by the love and support of this community…I got to interact with so many other wonderful, talented bloggers, some of whom I now call my friends, who gave me a sense of belonging in this blogging atmosphere. I may have gotten into blogging on a whim but I stayed in the blogging community because of the amazing experience I had (am having) with all of you, where I can share and read the words and photographs that come from the heart. I could not have asked for anything better.

What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?

Blog about what matters to you, connect with the community, there is a whole new world waiting to connect with you and your work. 🙂

What would be your dream campaign?

My dream campaign would be to promote the power of imagination, for everyone to imagine and follow their own dreams to do what makes them happy. And to spread hope and kindness in all hearts.

Do you have a plan for your blog?

My plan is to continue writing and connecting with fellow bloggers, to learn their stories and share mine. 🙂


What do you think about rankings?

I am not too fond of rankings, I like to appreciate all work that is done with passion and from the heart.


Here are my nominees, please check out their blogs to view some amazing talent.
