March 2020 – A Note of Special Thanks – Open Letter by Goff James

Dear friends, how quickly time flies by. Another month has passed and we are already entering the third month of 2020. March is here and Spring is tapping loudly on the door.

March the first is St. David’s Day. St. David is Wales’ patron saint. The Welsh flag with its red dragon flies proudly across the land.

Wales possesses another two, contrasting, national emblems; the daffodil and the leek. Each is proudly worn on this very important day in the Welsh calendar.

On this memorable day I would like to express a special note of appreciation to all of you who visit, follow and read my blog.

I also extend a warm welcome to all new visitors, readers and followers.

I take this opportunity to say to you all;

“Many thanks for following Art, Photography, Poetry. I truly appreciate the visits, the follows, the reads, all your positive comments and am extremely grateful for your valued and continued generous support. Thank you.”

Happy St. David’s Day.

Have a great day.

A 2020 New Year Special Thanks – Open Letter by Goff James

Happy New Year Everyone. 2019 has come and gone. Welcome 2020.

I would like to express a special note of appreciation to all of you who visit, follow and read my blog.

I also extend a warm welcome to all new visitors, readers and followers.

I take this opportunity to say to you all;

“Many thanks for following Art, Photography, Poetry. I truly appreciate the visits, the follows, the reads, all your positive comments and am extremely grateful for your valued and continued generous support. Thank you.”

Many of you will know that over the past year I have been attempting to to redesign the scheduling of posts. After much mind searching and tweaking; I now feel, that I have a fairly satisfactory format for my blog.

As 2020 begins I feel it is necessary to reassess, review and revise my daily posting schedule.

For the time being, at least, due to circumstances related to; the need to find more quality time for reading, my writing, painting, my photography and gardening; I have decided to cut down on the number of daily posts to three or four.

The same scheduling format will be followed. This I will review again around April 2020.

Revised Schedule 2020

Art, Photography and Poetry is an Award-Free Blog; and, is attempting to become an Emoji-Free blog. The latter goal, I confess, appears to be a losing cause. Emoji’s, nowadays, seem to have a growing acceptance as a means of general communication.

For me, the excessive use of emojis in the comments box, not only, deter the use of the written word; they considerably lower the ranking of posts and should be left to social media forums the genesis of their creation.

Have a wonderful and blessed day.

A Happy and Prosperous New Year to you all.
