Themes Du Jour

Whizzing round blogs like I do, I've discovered that in blogworld certain bloggers have created themes for each day.

On Mondays, there are Mosaic Mondays (thanks to Pat) - I quite like this. This Monday's theme was a celebration of Spring to come. So I think the idea is to celebrate joy and happiness pictorially (is that a proper word? Pictorially)?

On Tuesdays, there are Teaser Tuesdays as followed by Alex and Welshcake - The idea is to post random quotes from your novel or from a novel you are reading. I'm really enjoying this one too.

On Wednesdays, there are Wordless Wednesdays of the feline and non-feline variety. For the feline Wednesday, It's putting up lovely cat pics and for the other one... not quite sure really. I think it's adding your blog links of the virtual kind... to a Mr Linky perhaps? [Thanks Simon!]

On Thursdays, there are Alphabe-Thursdays - thanks to Pat again and Thursday Themes. Alphabe-Thursday is self explanatory. You choose a letter and post a pic of an image starting with the letter or of that letter. Dressing up is optional. The other is producing an artwork with a theme du jour. Either one, the results are quite imaginative!

On Fridays, it's another feline theme: Friday Night Fights. Cats. Play fighting in the cutest possible sense. What more could I want??!

And on the sixth and seventh days, blogworld bloggers rest. Unless you lot know of any that I've not come across yet? Or know of different themes for each day? Or would like to start one and if so what day would it be and what would you call it?

Snoozing Sweet Saturday (Pics of cats snoozing? Poems about snoozing people? What sweets did you or your cat or any other creature eat today?)

Shoe Sunday (Pics of one shoe. LOL! Pics of cats next to one shoe? A sonnet to a shoe?).

I'd love to know as I really find them fascinating.

And besides, I think they're brilliant and such fun to see what bloggers come up with for each day.

Oh, I LOVE this Red House blog and will be following that!

A lot of the cat blogs do Toesies Tuesday or Tattle Tail Tuesday, or Tummy Tuesday, something alliterative. I think most of the cat blogs I follow are members of the Cat Blogosphere and have certain "rules" to follow about posting. Which is why I haven't joined. That and the fact that I don't care to write from the point of view of the cat(s). Though, to be fair, not every blog does.

Most also post on Saturdays and Sundays, but I can't think of the themes, except the Easy On Sunday one (not quite the wording).

I'm just not creative enough to do themes. LOL.

Hi Kim

Oh the Little Red House is lovely, really really lovely!!

So glad you like it too.

Yes, I sort of dip in and out of the Cat Blogosphere every so often but I find it so overwhelming.. but I was very lucky to have found your blog through them though - so that's all good!

And you are too so creative! Look at your pics! :-)

Take care

Themes on certain days make it easier to blog for sure. I love following along with the themes, or just going out on my own for a day. Happy Blogging!

I'm a cat. And I follow some of the themes--not all--and I do blog on the weekends! :) I like the picture of the Old Kitty. And my human says 40 starts life, and 50 kicks it in gear. :)

Wow, I've only just got to grips with Tuesdays!

Old Kitty said...

Hi SuziQ

Aw! It's nice to go out and just enjoy the day!

Themes days do make blogging easier don't they? Now all I need is a digi camera and a willing Cat..!

:-)

Take care

Old Kitty said...

Hi Noir the Texas Tabby!

I have to wait ten more years for things to be kicked into gear?!?!

:-)

But you sound like a wise and knowing cat - and you're from Texas so I trust you!

Take care and thanks for popping in! *me and the cat are waving hello*

Take care

Hi hampshireflyer

Oh I think it's a fab thing to do for Tuesdays!

I'm reading an anthology of sci-fi short stories at the moment and there are some wacky random quotes that are just perfect for Tuesday teaser days..

take care

Old Kitty there are quite a lot of blog theme days every day of the week ..I do the ones I do as they blogger who run them were blog friends and I wanted to support their " theme event" It does keep me on my toes thinking of blog posts to write for them.

I also do "Outdoor Wednesday" and sometimes "Pink Saturday"...I am not much of a pink person but that one is very popular.

Mosaic Monday doesn't pick a theme ..we can do whatever we want as long as we make our photos into a mosaic. www.bighugelabs.com has a program that helps to do that!
