THANK YOU….๐Ÿ™ And LOVE YOU !

YES YOU !

Truly from the bottom of my Enormous โฃ heart, even if I say it myself. I could not do this, nor would there be any point without you.

I suddenly realised that we may be close to 1000 people now joining us in the fun. Turns out I can count after all and in reality it is now 1100 Odd fellow Big Hearts following across the board on all platforms! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ™Œ

So just WOW really, I am SO grateful for YOU, every last one of you, love you all for being so kind.

I am genuinely touched ( in a good way ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜) and feeling the love, So thankyou, thankyou, thankyou all.

This is going to be SO fun ๐Ÿ˜

Also on a similar note a five days ago I promoted my first post on Facebook and on to Instagram. So I thought I would share the experience for any others thinking of doing the same to promote their thang. Also to explain why I am especially feeling the love and had to say something.

The add cost me a sum of ยฃ4 a day but itโ€™s really entirely up to you what you spend. It was enough to risk as I see it like any gamble. Only ever bet what you are prepared to lose. Particularly as I am a genuine Neewb to all of this. I thought I would give it a go.

So I tried to choose a post that I thought that was..

A. A relevant/ important post, as in if you post often, one of your best, not a filler or a to short post to say much.

B. It had attracted likes in the past. Enough to show it doesnโ€™t suck at least as a minimum I would say in my vast experience ๐Ÿ˜‚

C. It was an attractive photo ( visuals are key..ALWAYS.) But I would say that, as itโ€™s what I understand and know best. I LOVE THIS PHOTO. That why I used it as my introduction to the blog on my very first post.

D. It has something that shows who you are. I used one with all the playlists on so people could see exactly who we are and get a feel for us very quickly in a single post.

So Despite instagram being the last platform that I ventured to bravely, if I was/am still slightly fumbling around like a child. Now Iโ€™d have to say, that I am reborn in regards to Instagram. What is not to like. Well maybe the sharing features, ahem!

Not only must they be, most definitely, showing it to people who could possibly like and/or respond to my kind of blog, but your amazing response has just blown me a way and proved to be a great success.

That one post has been shown to 10k people In 4/5 days and had an wonderful reaction, Thank you ๐Ÿ™

We were at 1700 likes as I drafted this yesterday, now more than over 2000 likes on that one post and seems to be growing by the minute, and 200+ follows too.

WOW you lot, Big up you ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ

As apposed to Facebook getting only 8 likes… which is a vast difference, and NO followers other than personal requests. So to speak.

It is so hard to have a clue what you are doing in the beginning of all this. So to see this kind of response is wonderful to feel that I must be doing something right. Codependently or not. It genuinely makes me happy, Lol.

Big apologies too if I made any mistakes with the old follow not follow malarkey. New to this, and all that. So I donโ€™t always/often know what Iโ€™m doing. So if the follow was offensive, it was meant more as a gift to say thank you for all the likes for any who want them.

Nor do I have any intentions of going prying through your life or pics because I see this as an invasion of privacy. As you can see I highly value my privacy as you can see, so I feel EXACTLY the same about yours. So apologies if I do not accept the personal FB account requests, also for the same reason.

So just so you know FYI.

I WILL NOT be going through anyoneโ€™s personal pics. Sorry.

So no matter how hot as F##k you look in that selfie from the bathroom in your Pants/mankini, or on that beach…itโ€™s private so I wonโ€™t even be looking let alone liking any of that kinda thing.

Itโ€™s nothing personal…itโ€™s just personal.

I will Like the odd pet, flower or view. But even babies ( who are genuinely some of my most favourite people in the world) or even family pics, would already feel like an invasion of someoneโ€™s privacy to me and so a huge no no.

So please donโ€™t think I donโ€™t think your baby, selfie, or body is fab…Iโ€™m sure they are all Fanfu**ingfantastic. Itโ€™s just I am Genuinely not looking.

Pets though…fair game ๐Ÿ˜‚

Equally finding time to fit everything I need into the days is enough of a challenge to me, without looking through 200 odd lives, Iโ€™m sure you are the same.

That is why I followed, just as a way to say thanks to any who want them only.

So To all you Big Hearts

Thankyou all and

BIG BIG BIG LOVE YOU LOVELY PEOPLE….

With Impeccable Taste ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‰

For you

GIVE THX by the amazing NIGHTMARES ON WAX

Tuesday Tunes to Chill to with all my love x

Our new Chill 1 playlist straight from the Chillout area. Slow sexy little numbers from…

THE HERBALISER, WAX TAYLOR,RODNEY HUNTER and NIGHTMARES ON WAX.. they are all so good, I love them. Some gorgeous voices too.

It reminds me of a lay on the grass in the sun with friends sort of music. Or sitting by the pool on holiday. Or even just getting ready for a night out with friends.

What does this remind you of, or make you feel?

As always with my stuff even if it doesnโ€™t sound like your kind of thing, I would say give it a chance. Hopefully then you will understand why each and every song is there and you never know what you next best most favourite thing is going to be unless you try it.

For me there are only two types of music….

Good and Bad, apart from that anything goes really. No rules and I find it better that way. Why limit yourself?

My only rule if you can call it that-ish, is it has to make me feel. Something, surely ? In the same way that all Art has to move me…. to something.

Or conversely it makes me FEEL like getting up and changing the song. Either/Or ๐Ÿคฃ

For all of you, with all my love.

๐Ÿ’œ

Let’s get a little funky for the weekend shall we. X

A fabulous little mix of some of the loveliest upbeat soulful funk.

So much soul ๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŽถ it always lifts my vibrations.

With the brilliant Betty Write, Jean Knight, Rufus Thomas, the Isley Brother.

Funky Nassau and Since you’ve been gone, are stillr two of those songs that I can get lost in no matter how often I hear them, I never get tired of hearing them.

So we can add them to my pile of most loved songs.

Hope the week treated you kindly and that the weekend does too.

All my Love, Big Heart. xxx

All the Playlists to live here in one big happy easy to find family. X

 

 

Soft, sexy Latin mini playlist. For the soul, the blood and the week ๐Ÿ’œ with love.

So sorry about all the posting, not posting, sharing, not sharing malarkey. I have been trying to add Instagram and twitter which seems to have unfortunately made all the difference. So lets hope I have it now. Sometimes too i check the draft preview, which looks pukka only to find later that it has morphed into a series of unsightly links… oops.

Originally i was trying only 3 platforms and posting different things to all. Now i realise what with kids, holidays, dog, life, trying to write more and work it was turning into a pressure rather than a pleasure which wont do.

Then a blogging friend advised i would really need Instagram and twit twit Twitter too. So now i do, I am, and i will. Only now it is we five, I can’t now post differently to all and have a life too, which is the bad news.

The good news, on the other hand, is that you can now choose your favourite platform so no need to fumble about in places you are unfamiliar, like i have been doing. And i have more time to find you all that juicy music etc which is what really feeds my soul, and brings me joy.

Hope these ever changing plans are to you liking… lets see shall we. x

Here is a bit of everything from Afro Cubism, to Bebel Gilberto and Quantic to another glorious heart wrenching Lhasa De Sela song, plus a little Buena Vista Social Club thrown in for good measure. Enjoy โค

Love and light you gorgeous lot.xxx
