Knowing Yourself Is The Begining Of All Wisdom ~ Aristotle
This is a wonderful quote and in life I find it so true. There are times when others will say to me…”You should do this or that!” I in turn will say, “Really?”
So listen to others…they could be speaking from above.
These beautiful flowers are from my journey to Texas a few weeks back.
Right now, I think we all could use a little spring fling to our step.
Tip of the Day For Photographers and Bloggers:
Please, pretty please with icing on top…put your blog link on your Gravatar page!
A lot of bloggers just put their name or nickname on the Gravatar page with no internal links.
You can look at my page for an example of the internal link under verified services.
This is how your community will find you.
Can I tell you how many times, someone comments on this blog and I go to respond back with no return link to their blog?
They will leave the nicest comment and I can’t return the favor. Sigh…
Do you know how much this is hurting you with no love on the flip side and no return follower?☺
This would be crucial especially in the case where you are commenting on a different platform…for instance, you have a Blogger Blog and commenting on a WordPress Blog or vice versa.
I hope this encourages you to take a minute to add your blog link…just think who you could be missing…it could be your new BFF♥
If this is your first or second time, be sure to join our email list, so you don’t miss any FREE tips of the day!

Beautiful pictures! Thank you for linking up with Inspired Tuesday this week!
Amazing photography! I just had to back out and re-read your Meet Laurie page. Ha! I thought hot damn these photo’s are beautiful, is she a photographer. Silly me. So glad I’m following along. We all need a dose of great inspiration!
Thanks for the inspiration and little bit of spring 🙂
Good post with excellent tips… Thank you for joining in ‘Rurality Blog Hop #5’ Hope to see you next Wednesday for #6…
Love your photos of our spring. I allow nickle weed to grow also because it is pretty and a nice green.
Great photos Laurie. I love all the photography and life tips you offer. 🙂
I send greetings from Poland and invite you to see the photos on my blog.
Lauie, I’m jealous that you have such lovely spots of color and emerging Spring! We haven’t gotten there yet here in Colorado. Thanks for sharing in Walk and Click Wednesday!!
These photos are just gorgeous! I love the quote, too!
lovely images ♥
Laurie, thanks for the public service announcement. I was ready to blog about it myself, because I find the same thing — a Gravatar and no web page linked to it.
Absolutely amazing shots! And great advice – I double checked mine to make sure my links were there (since I never thought about it before!) 🙂

Lovely pictures! I love the colours.
The quote is perfect!
Love the colorful photos! I updated my Gravatar info – so thanks for the tip, too!
Wonderful flower/nature pics and quotes too. They make me happy!
thanx for your lovely colors of spring 🙂
Beautiful flowers, thank you for sharing your pictures and quotes!
Great tip Laurie, love your captures and quote!
Lovely photographs. Yes what you aid is true. Sometimes its difficult to return the comment as there is no back link. (I hope mine is working) 🙂
No, Haddock yours does not have a link on your gravatar where to find you? Your gravatar shows up with no blog links on the page.
Such pretty pictures.. Thanks for all your tips..
so beautiful image !! here spring comes with great steps !!
Just added Gravitar per your request. I had no idea about this service. Love the first and second images. 🙂
These photos are so pretty, love the colors. The quote is so true!
Your photos are stunning! And thank you for the blogging advice. Since I just bumble along on my own I always look to other more experienced women for direction!
Such wonderful photos, and gret advice! Thank you!
Great advice, Laurie! I have been unable to follow up on someone because their gravatar had no link.
Blessings ~ Wendy
Guess I’ll have to go check that out. Loving your photographs. New here, much to see. I’m also your latest follower. Nice to meet you.
What lovely photos. You asked me a question in your comment on my blog but you are a no reply commenter. We live in North Central Florida and love it here! Do you live anywhere near? Sweet hugs!
Lavender, no unfortunately I am way down in the SW part of Florida on the gulf side. Lets keep in touch.
You made quite a few good points.
I had never heard of Gravatar before!
Neither have I, Patrice. Someone fill us in, please
You need to go to Gravatar.com set up an account. It is very simple. Have a image ready to use as your avatar, so when you are commenting on others blogs, you don’t get the generic one to pop up that nobody can relate to. Also, it will ask you if you have any websites or links you want to attach to it? You always put your blog link attached here. Others will link Facebook etc. I hope this helps everyone.
terrific. I will do that right now. Thanks so much.
love your pictures and recommendations!
I’m enjoying my glimpses of spring through others as we have lots of snow falling in the mid-west today.
Thanks for sharing 🙂
Lovely photos, Laurie!
I agree with you on the Gravatar thingy, I’ve had similar issues. I do my best to visit everyone who comments and visits my blog and I feel disconnected when I have no way of visiting someone who left me a comment.
Thank you Gracie…I don’t think others sometimes realize what they are missing out on☺
Beautiful photos and blog!
Great photos as always. These make me want spring!
I shall have to go and double check my Gravatar but I am sure it is on there and if it is not then is damn well should be
Beautiful!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
I agree beautiful photos
Have a bloomingtastic week 😉
Great images Laurie! And I completely agree on your tip concerning Gravatar pages!
Thank you so much for the gravatar-tip ~ I wasn’t aware of that I could make a profile …. I updated it right away!
I’m so happy for your daily tips … It’s so kind of you to share the tips ~ I loved also the one about the titles of blog posts!
Have a great week, Nina
thanks for the tip. I haven’t been to my settings in a long time at Gravatar.
Nice reminder spring is on the way.
Totally agree with you this quote so true “Knowing Yourself Is The Begining Of All Wisdom” (Aristotle) – in my eyes that’s where everything starts… 🙂
Beautiful photos, excellent captured… 🙂
I LOVE that quote!! And the picture is perfect for it!
You are right of course about your advice. I just double checked my Gravatar and it’s as it should be. I don’t tend to follow people though because that amount of e-mail make me nervous. I guess I should see if it can just be delivered to my reader on WordPress. Your photos are lovely of course, and I love the quote.
Yes, you can follow people thru your wordpress reader..yipee!
I also figured out a way to filter the e-mails better so I am going to follow you here in a minute 🙂
Laurie, Love the flowers! I am ready for spring but we are supposed to have freezing rain later and maybe some snow tomorrow. Tell me it ain’t so!
Thanks for the tips on Gravatar. I know I had an image but when I checked my profile there was no link to my blog.
Have a great day and I hope it’s warm!
Good girl…Anne! Thanks!
Lovely quote and beautiful images. Thanks for the tips on the Gravatar. Have a happy day!
I forgot. That is true about “Knowing Yourself Is The Begining Of All Wisdom”…
Yes, we do need spring on my door step. It is not here yet but I think it is getting there. These pictures are just that.
I could not agree more about putting the link to your blog on Gravatar page. That is a very good reminder.
GREAT ADVISE! Always love your beautiful photos and stories.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
