About Me


Hi there –  Thanks for stopping here. You just made my day.

I am very glad that you stopped by and I hope you find something interesting to ponder about! Blogging is all about sharing one’s thoughts, embracing a global community and making connections, right? Without readers, what good is a blog?

I’m  an egalitarian, environmental traditionalist who lives in Australia, however I am an Aussie who is anything but a sunlover. In fact, I am a bit obsessed with cool, wintry climates and Scandinavia, in general, as you will soon find out.

But don’t go thinking it is all about darkness and gloom here, at Something to Ponder About, because if you do, you would be wrong. I write about many different things that interest, puzzle and frustrate me, and things that important to share with others.

Like sharing and discussing pearls of wisdom in Sunday Sayings (formerly called Proverbial Friday), inviting contributions to Photo challenges on Friendly Friday; writing Travel and Book/Product reviews, tutorials on Traditional Arts and Crafts, as well as good old fashioned home Cooking.

As I think everyone’s opinion is important, please feel welcome to leave a comment on any of my posts and we can have a conversation!

Come and join me.  Everyone is welcome here; there’s always Something to Ponder About.

  1. Hi, Amanda… I was just visiting on a ?RandomRaid!, and I landed on your 2015 post ‘One Word Photo Challenge: Ultramarine‘. Comments are closed for that post, so I hope you don’t mind me reporting here what I found on my ‘raid’:
    1. The second image, ‘Tangalooma wrecks – Moretone Bay Australia’, has gone walkies 😦
    2. The link on the word ‘here’, to http://jennifernicholewells.com/2014/12/30/one-word-photo-challenge-ultramarine/ is dead (‘404 not found’).


    1. Hey! Thanks for the raid! I will remove that post as it is no longer relevant. Some of my older images no longer show for some reason. Appreciate the raid and will return the favour asap.

      1. Awww… butbutbut… I thought it was a good post. I really want to see the second image. To be honest it was only Scrapydo’s comment ‘The second one has different color tones!’ that made me look again; I hadn’t even noticed that it was missing,
        I’m intrigued as to the reason why some of your older images might no longer show. Perhaps it’s something that a WordPress.com Happiness Engineer can help you with… might it be worth a trip to https://wordpress.com/support/ ?


Everyone is important. What do you have to say?
