Apologies to anyone who accidentally got left out, whose @ call sign didn’t work, those who got pinged twice (three times?), &c., &c.! I repeat: All are invited whether listed above or not! Hope to see you all on the 23rd!
(‘Authors Who Made History’ in progress, perhaps … please feel free to add a blog link to share a relevant current or past post of your own here if you wish.)
In the meantime, would anyone like to post for this feature during November (16th? 23rd? 30th?) or December? Your article can be any word-length and does not have to be a formal ‘essay’ style for this feature providing it is a ‘complete’ post. Please use the #authorstory tag. Images used in your post could be your own, or otherwise Commons or fair use compliant and clearly credited with the image source. There should be a clear policy here somewhere confirming your usual standard intellectual property rights as contributing/author members (see also final paragraph in this post). WordPress, BloggingU and commons type guidelines and founding principles apply. (Thanks 🙂
Latest #Shutterbug Showcase call for volunteers can be found here. NB: This ‘feature’ includes the potential for writing responses to the prompt and not only as a ‘photopost’.
@piyushavir – are you still available ‘on call’ as per sidebar info? hope all is well with you. ALSO Did you previously express an interest in posting a fave/rec. author for this and you wanting today/any other? Apologies if I’m mixing you up with someone else and no worries if you are too busy but please can you indicate your anticipated response time. (PS – thanks to whomever for sorting @admin issue earlier)

So, this is a shout out for all you beautiful members of Bloggers world. Please nominate yourself for the Tuesday Trivia feature. Since I try to nominate myself every month for this feature, I should confess it is really fun trying to find a few fun facts. Everybody should try it once.
Awaiting your response and nominations for 6th, 13th,20th, and 27th September.
Have a great week ahead.

in light of the big announcement of the upcoming launch of my website, I would be unable to continue handling the Friday Feature as I do have a lot of to care of.
In addition to writing for my own blog, I am writing my novel, organising writing events, and pursuing further courses and workshops on writing. So you see I have a lot of my plate now, as compared to when I had taken the feature. This leaves me with little time to do more that I can. Hence, I am forced to take some things off and unfortunately, the Friday Feature is one the things that I’d have to let go off.
I’d like to hand over the reins to someone else who can take the feature to greater heights.
Please do suggest your names if you would like to be assigned this fun responsibility of scheduling the feature, giving prompts etc.
Also, for Tuesday Trivia, please as nominate yourselves as the feature incharge as @feelings161 is unable to volunteer anymore due to personal reasons.
Nominations now open for the weekly features schedule of weekly features from August 1st – August 31st. Continue reading
Here is your dose of Trivia Tuesday!
- Bruno Mars’ birth name is Peter Gene Bayot Hernandez. His stage name, ‘Bruno Mars‘, was inspired by the wrestler Bruno Samartino. This was because as a child, Bruno was independent, confident and strong-willed, like the wrestler. ‘Mars‘ came along because he was often told he was “out of this world” by the girls, so he used the planet Mars as his last name.
- The least financially successful Harry Potter film made approximately $90 million more than the most successful Twilight movie. (He-He Evil laugh!)
- In 2007, a 1000-gallon inflatable swimming pool was stolen from someone’s back garden without a single drop of water being found! (C-R-A-Z-Y!)
- In a 2008 survey, 58% of British teens thought Sherlock Holmes was a real guy, while 20% thought Winston Churchill was not. Source
- Microsoft had offered to buy Yahoo for US$44.6 billion in 2008. Yahoo rejected the offer. In 2016, it sold for just US$4.8 billion. Source
That’s all I have for today.
Which of these did you find the most interesting?
