Grati’s Something About Love blog celebrates 10 year blogiversary! August 25, 2021 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1409)

Today is my 10 year blogiversary for my Something About Love blog here.  Wow!  Time flies when you’re having fun, as the saying goes!

Thank you to all of you, my friends across the miles and around the world, for making my experience of sharing with you my stories, essays, and graphics–and my admiRAtion for a certain tall, dark, handsome & brilliant British actor and storyteller named Richard Armitage [below]–such a joyous one!

I continue to strive to have my SAL blog be a positive place where you can come to relax and enjoy–perhaps, letting go of your cares as a respite, to recharge your batteries and to renew your energies.

There are some serious moments as well, especially as now, when world events at home and abroad make us all wish for resolution to illness, strife and tragedy.  Those in need are never far from our thoughts.

And we all do our bit to help when we can.  Small actions of aid for others are sometimes the most vital, helpful, and welcome expressions of care.  Never doubt that we all have the power to lift up each other.

So as my SAL blog continues to roll along here for another 10 years and more, I thank you most sincerely for your participation in reading/enjoying my stories, essays, and graphics– voting/starring them, and sharing your thoughts with me.  And I have to admit, it gives me a little thrill when you also return to stories and essays that I have shared in the the past, as well as, my current work.

I wish for you you every happiness that you wish for yourselves–including safety, health, and peace.

Hugs, Love, & Cheers!  Grati  ;->

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

    Congratulations on the 10th anniversary of your blog. It truly was a memorable weekend for the RArmy, especially because of Richard’s generous participation and contribution. I love that he made that video and showed us the next day he was reading all of our messages. I feel happy. Here’s to 10 more years of your writing here and your stories!

    • Hi Violet, Thanks so much for your very kind note about my SAL blog’s 10th blogiversary! And Richard Armitage’s 50th bday video message was delightful! Loved his zeal in cutting his cupcake with his sword Orcrist from his The Hobbit trilogy of films! Hugs & Cheers! Grati ;->

    Congratulations! 😎👍

    You need a 10-year anniversary gift, tin or aluminium, perhaps?

    Here’s to another 10 exciting years – with lots of interesting Armitage projects we can all discuss? 😘

    • Hi zedeffeye1, Thanks for your very kind well wishes for my 10th blogiversary! And a decorative tin with RA’s aquiline profile in silhouette would be just the thing! Ha! And Richard Armitage is sure to continue featuring in many of my essays and stories! Hugs & Cheers! Grati ;->
