Where it's Friday forever!

A Bee in my Bonnet


So … welcome back! Wow, I’m rocking the blogging thing after being away for so long, aren’t I? Whoo, go me …
But seriously, we’ve all gotta talk.
So, the world of #FP and #200WT has always been small but mighty, right? And we have the most amazing community of people who have been around from Day 1, who stuck it out with us through some pretty heavy times and we could not be more thankful for that.
But now, with the change in #Friday Phrases and #200WT and #MusaeMosaic and all the things that happens … we are really stretching ourselves thin here. And by we, I actually mean lil’ old me, @LoonyMoonyLara.
As you know, @AdeleSGray is battling a lot of health situations, and still being the warrior she is to get our family going in the world. And that is a huge mission, in itself, so the beautiful world we have online, it’s on me for now.
And I love that. I love being trusted with the confidence, with the friendship of so many people.
But concentrating so many efforts on so many places, it takes a toll. I end up sleeping very little at night, just worrying about the tweets I have to send, and things I’ll have to do … quality of life is very much lessened by worrying about being in so many places at once. And that’s exactly my problem.
Musae Mosaic is going to help with this problem a lot, in that #FridayPhrases and #200WT are going to be in the same place, and I don’t need to bounce between blogs so much.
A problem, however, still resides with the Twitters.
We cannot afford an automater, or one with a premium plan that best suits our purpose, so we cannot keep things going on four different Twitter accounts at the same time, if you follow me.
And we do all of our interacting there! All of it, we just go and we talk to people and were have an amazing time, right? It’s the magic behind #FP, it’s so wonderfully personal! 
I just don’t have enough hands, enough space in my head for so many things.
So that why we’re considering deleting the #200WT twitter account, as the blog is already defunct and making way for Musae Mosaic.
More than that, it seems strange to us to have a Twitter for #FP and not one for #200WT, when they will both still carry on as they’ve always done, but not on an independent website.
At the same time, %90 of our community is on @FridayPhrases and we can’t just start a new twitter to place our efforts … the time that takes …
So you see the dilemma, right?
Now there is a solution that I’m pretty sure I’m going to do and this long winded post is, in a way, just a little preparation for that.
I propose that we keep the #FridayPhrases twitter account for its exact purpose. Hosting #FP every week and interacting with the community. But amalgamating it with #200WT, #S4S, Musae Mosaic and everything else…
In fact, renaming the entire #FridayPhrases account, Musae Mosaic. To concentrate all efforts in one place rather than four, and getting absolutely nowhere at all …
Now I know that after all this time, it’ll be another weird adjustment … but let’s just keep inviting folks to everything they could possibly want in one place, yeah? Make a huge community and welcome all in with open arms. If I can make that happen, you have my vow that everything there will always, always be personally written by me. Every tweet, every favorite, every reply. Not another faceless bot behind a façade …
So what do you say?

The Name Has Come


And now, the time has come …
As today is the day that @LoonyMoonyLara, me, turns twenty one and yesterday was @AdeleSGray’s birthday too, we decided to make an event out of it, cos no, there was no space for cake today and that’s not great, but life goes on!
In the event of which, it was also time to release the news about our new magazine project!
The Friday Phrases and 200 Word Tuesday’s blogs go hand in hand. They belong together, how could we ever tear them apart, right?
At the same time, what could we do to give them the breath of life they so desperately needed?
The answer lay within a magazine that would forthwith spearhead all that was to come, all the good things in the future and now, all you awesome people, I have the great privilege of spilling the beans and telling you what we are calling it.
So, gather around!
For the amalgamated #FP and #200WT blogs now come together, to create new programs, new community events, and new opportunities … the phoenix rises from the ashes and the muse is reborn to the spirit of all we do.
For the name of the new project is
*lets that sink in for a sec*
And yes, the name of the magazine is Musae Mosaic! The ode to the Muses whom we all worship, and a great mosaic made of the arts to create the magic it is!
This is our offering to you.
This is the second chance for everything we have, that we will fight for and never let go.
This is a place of welcome, where words, passion and imagination exist in a realm that is limitless, in a place that exists only to please you.
And word of honor, we uphold that for hopefully time without end!
Let’s make art together!
Let’s make what we love a madness worth celebrating.
Happy April, and happy days!
Peace! x

The Very Best of A FORCE OF NATURE!


Hello, all you lovely peeps!
So. Tomorrow is kind of a huge day and it’s going to be hectic but that is the day that this five day hiatus begins. #FP is going to run normally, please don’t worry about that (I’m way too much of an addict to let it go) so send ‘em #FP’s thick and fast on Friday, cos’ I’ll be there for them!
I will not however, be replying to any emails regarding #ForTheLoveofLove until the 7th, when I come back.
Don’t worry, nothing bad is happening, we’re just going to go and change our lives a little.
Change can be good!
True to my word, the fundraiser has been deleted, and I want to thank you all a thousand times and a thousand times again for all you have done for us. Sometimes I have words, and sometimes I don’t that fully describe how grateful I am for the help you have given, for all the kindness we’ve been shown.
I will never forget it.
I promise you that.
The deadline for #ForTheLoveofLove has been extended until the 7th, when this hiatus is over and everything will resume again after that. This time away serves a bigger purpose in our lives, so it’s a necessary break.
There’s still time to send your words, guys. Still time to change my family’s lives, such as we have come to know it …
Anyway, this foreword cannot be too extensive as I am running out of time that I need to spend at home, with my family and get things ready for a new world ahead, so, as I like saying so much, onto the #FP’s!
The theme last week was A Force of Nature, which I admit, was inspired by you guys, a force of nature with your beautiful words and everything you do that blows me away … I mean, you’d think there’d be a pattern of familiarity by now, but every week, it’s like sitting down and down #FP again for the very first time.
The gift that keeps on giving!
And now, enough of my ramblings!
Please enjoy The Very Best of A Force Of Nature!
