Eclectic Corner #12, Perspective – Quotes

Eclectic Corner #12, Perspective – Quotes


Come & join in the new streamlined Eclectic Corner, one ‘theme/word’ per month, 3 challenges!

The ‘theme’ or word this month is ‘Perspective’

The 3 parts to each ‘theme/word’  each week over the month will be scheduled as follows:

  • 1st Tuesday of each month, Week 1 = Photography
  • 2nd Tuesday of each month, Week 2 = Poetry or written piece (specifics announced at time)
  • 3rd Tuesday of each month, Week 3 = Favourite related quote

All the above should be related somehow even be it loosely to the Theme of the Month.

Week 4  we will celebrate with my Tea Party blog hop, which will not be in theme to Eclectic Corner, just a Tea Party as usual but we will celebrate also some entries for the Eclectic Corner.

You can still read up on Eclectic Corner #11 Momentarily if you missed it here:  Eclectic Corner #11 Momentarily – Photography

You can also still view the Inlinkz page that relates to this theme/word, here:  InLinkz Momentarily

You get 3 votes to use during the month to pick your favourite posts.  Voting is enabled from the 18th June.

At the Tea Party on week 4  I will feature the top 3 with the highest scores irrelevant of which week it relates to.  If you enter the challenge there is an agreement that you will allow me to use the photo and or written work to be featured, of course you retain your copyright.

There will be as usual the InLinkz, please make sure to blog hop and vote for your favourite entries.  So you might need to pop back each week to see who has entered what.

The InLinkz will close on Friday 19th June, to give me time to write up the Tea Party and celebrate, so with the quotes on week 3, this is a shorter week.

Perspective – Quote

Though it is not photography week, I wanted to include pics I captured recently of some stunning roses, one of the many glorious types of flowers that Mother Nature provides.

This was a total no brainer for me as I have this quote attached to my personal e-mail.  It sums up to me our entire perspective on life and how we can make it a positive experience or a negative.  It is all about how we look at things.

Just a reminder that voting is enabled from the 18th, which means that posting is then disabled, as Inlinkz doesn’t appear to allow voting and posting in to Inlinkz at the same time.  So please get your posts posted by the 18th and make sure to use your 3 votes up.  Voting closes on the 19th, yup one day which gives me ‘just’ enough time to write up the Tea Time post with the 3 top entry features.

If you wish to enter, please press the button below and enter your URL.  Make sure to vote, or pop back when more entries are put in and say ‘hi’ to the others.  You might want to tag your post Eclectic Corner #12 Perspective.

PS Don’t forget to enter your posts in to the InLinkz please 😀

Thank you for your time, Justine xx

PPS I am still working on my online shop, very excited about it, it’s taking quite some time to sort out, but will be opening imminently, hence late on this post 😀
