My 634 post – All my Yesterdays? well, a few of them


Beautiful rafaela just one of my many past posts

I thought that I’d do an update as I haven’t done one since my 550th in June.  I am glad that the experiment in cutting down my blog post by posting every few days doesn’t seem to affected my views.  Posting every day (which I managed for a full year) was getting very time-consuming: life  and Bookstains were suffering!

Hogarth another past post (birthday I think)

What I thought I would do for this post is look at some posts going right back: posts that never really got a proper airing in the early days. 

My Bronte bites (must update these with another trip to Haworth)

My blog has changed completely over the a few years – so much added; so many categories.  The book reviews and poetry have had to be accommodated in Bookstains where I’m  hosting poetical challenges based on paintings.  But just for fun and because I’m feeling nostalgic –  here area tiny minute fractionof my early ‘Yesterdays’  Please feel free to comment:-)

Foundation Stones McGuire

A very early post about Irish artist Brian McGuire and why I love his ‘Foundation Stones paintings

Just a tick – just getting the lay of the land(one of my very first blog posts…….

  1. Love staring at “euphoria-borealis.” Hats off to you for posting every day for a year. Here’s to many more wonderful posts! Cheers 🙂

  2. From beautiful nude to terrifying Adolf looking totally miffed! LOL. GREAT stuff, Lynda. Thank you for your thoughtful, evocative and stimulating posts. Much appreciate all your efforts and insights.

  3. I have learned quite a bit about various artists and media I didn’t know existed by visiting your posts this past year. Thank-you for that and for always taking the time to show an interest in what I am doing. More than once, your posts have inspired and created ideas for my own endeavors. I am looking forward to what this year brings on Echostains, Lynda.

  4. No, thank YOU for visiting and adding interesting comments Leslie! I will be interviewing you before Christmas (if you are agreeable to it?) I will email you some questions and you can pick some or all to answer:-)

    When I look back at this blog, I think it has undergone so much change! It started off with my altered book (which I have lost yet again…) and bits of all sorts really. I am glad I put TV, films and poetry on Bookstains though and next year will see a major overhaul of that site. Lots of plans:-)

  5. Lynda, your dedication to your blog has been an inspiration to me and I always enjoy what you come up with. I hear you about how writing and researching content for a blog can be time consuming to say the least! It’s important to not let it interfere with life, but rather let it inform it instead. I admire that where you started is not where you are now and that you have been willing to grow and change over time. Do you think that your blog has now “become” your art? Or put another way, do you think blogs are now an art form? As a fan, thanks for all your posts.

  6. Yes, I suppose my blog has now become my art Al 🙂 I never get a chance to make any art now, there never seems enough time. I miss being in an art environment and I suppose this is the nearest to one. Thanks for unstinting report – and do keep reading and commenting – its always appreciated!

  7. dear lynda,

    i am equally happy for you to have such an energetic spirit for the arts. thank you for sharing them through your blogpage. i wish you all the best for the future and may you never tire showcasing your art finds here. goodluck.

    1. Thanks Marvin! I’m glad you’re enjoying Echostains and the art:-) Don’t forget to pop over to my other blog – Bookstains, which is full of book reviews poetry and fun poetry challenges:-)
