It's beBee Blogging Time


What's this beBee all about, should I stay and work it out?

Why do strangers follow me, should I follow them and see?

Share a photo, post a link, tell them what I really think?

Write a buzz, long or scant, will they find it relevant?

................................................................................... 

Can this social network be, true affinity for me?

Will it give me what I'm missing, or just leave me reminiscing?

Will my creativity, lead to hive activity?

Will my posts be liked and read, shared around, so they spread?

....................................................................................

Wait a moment, what's this bell, on the top line, pray do tell?

Numbers pop up, now I see, I have feedback, just for me.

Comments come, smooth as honey, some of them are really funny.

Happy bees all start to buzz, when I tell them how it was.

........................................................................................

Now things start to come alive, when I dive into a hive.

Shares commence, quite a lot, when I stir the honey pot.

Comments flow, smooth as honey, some of them are really funny.

Every bee's a honey eater, like it, love it, nothing sweeter.

..........................................................................................

Bye Bye Facebook, see ya Twitter, leaving LinkedIn's sweet not bitter.

Come on over, one and all, join me on my beBee wall.

Happy chat's the way to go, no 'trolls' here, they spoil the show.

..........................................................................................

Now it's time to stop this rhyme, cause it's beBee blogging time!

Ken Boddie is an enthusiastic photographer, rarely leisure-travelling without his Canon.  He loves to interact with other like-minded photographers and people with an artistic background.

Ken's three day work week (part time commitment) as a consulting engineer allows him to follow his photography interests, and to plan trips to an ever increasing list of countries and places of scenic beauty and cultural diversity.

When not analysing consulting issues or writing posts,  Ken chases his creative side, the results of which can be seen as selected photographs of his travels on his website at:

Will my posts be liked and read, shared around, so they spread? OFCOURSE they will. We love reading your buzz with the fuzz lol. And Oh I've missed reading this one too. I guess we need to step up and revive the bebee spirit. Take a oath or something! I have become so dull not being around with my bees :) Love the poem and great suit - look dashing Ken Boddie

So true, Pak Paul. A really good read is so hard to find. If I see one more listicle, I swear I’ll go blind.

Ken Boddie . Ah yes, I remember this one especially you in the suit and tie!! Agree on the content now all seems to be '10 ways to get ahead", 10 ways to massacre your competition, "How to make your CV stand out" etc etc etc ...still I shall persist as I do wade through the corporate slush until I find articles like yours. We are simple folk are we not?

Thanks for reviving this oldie, Preston. A lot has happened on BeBee since I wrote this some two and a half years ago. I still like to casually ‘write’ but these days there are so many serious work related posts and its harder to find relaxed writing.

"What's in a name? A Kevin Pashuk or Ken by any other name would smell as sweet." #48

Nothing is wrong with being a Kevin, if it is you. Now Ken, on the other hand, may have an issue with it. :)

#33
Oh no, Ken, where have I been? It won't happen again. I am so sorry. I will try to be a better bee.

Another benefit of using a MacBook, Dean Owen, is the 'Emoji & Symbols' function available on the Edit tab. #22 💻

I consulted the Windows Jedi 🗿, and he led me to bring up the onscreen keyboard in Windows 8, which then let me do emoticons... 🎇🎆☀
