“Every day may not be good… but there’s one good thing in every day!” ~ Alice Morse Earle


Not so long ago one of my longest online and blogging friends contacted me asking if I were interested in co-hosting a link up party with her. Of course I said ‘yes’! Because what is better than partying with a friend?!

I tell you what is better – partying with two friends. Plus getting to know their friends along the way. Because that is what happens when you party, ahem, take a link up party seriously. And you know that Germans can be very serious indeed.

Germans? Plural? Correct, because the initiator of the link up is Susi of Bocafrau. Susi is a German made American – her own words. But there is no need for me to tell you, just hop on over to Susi’s blog and check out what she has to say about #OneGoodThing. You can be sure there will be some neat photos, too, since this is her project 365.

Joining these two Germans is our friend from up north in Canada, Leslie aka RoryBore of Ink Interrupted. Most of the time you will find some pretty nifty writing on Leslie’s blog, however, she is also a photo ninja in training – you guessed it – her own words, so photos galore.

Unlike Susi, neither Leslie, nor I intend to do a photo project 365 this year, one photo each day is just not in my immediate future. But we do love to hang out with our friends on Instagram, which will be my main venue for this new link up. But it doesn’t have to be for you. Good things come in many forms – a photo, a collage, a poem, an anecdote, anything you want to share that was good that day, week, month is welcome for our link up, because we would love for you to party with us, too. Either every day (more or less…) on Instagram, just tag your photo #OneGoodThing or weekly on our websites.

[Tweet “Check out the new #linkup party #OneGoodThing every Monday with @RoryBore @Bocafrau”]

Are there rules? There are always rules, I told you we are 2/3 German, but really there aren’t any – yet, except for: Tag your Instagram photos with #OneGoodThing & Have fun! And if you are so inclined, do share and display our button to spread the word. Because, you know, there is always #onegoodthing every day.


And now, here is my selection of #OneGoodThing photos that I uploaded on Instagram over the course of the last couple of weeks. Going forward I will always be sharing photos from the previous week only. And just so you know, all of my photos on Instagram were shot (and edited) with my iPhone. Though that does not mean that yours have to be.

Have a look and then scroll down and you will find the link up. It will be open from Sunday night (EST) till Monday night (EST). So, what are you waiting for?! Link up! Now!

 *** Here is where I link up today. ***

Please help me spread the word about my Saturday Art Linkup and grab my badge below:


I hope that over time we will be building a community dedicated to art and creating. I rather like these words said by Andy Warhol:


Don’t think about making art, just get it done.

Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. 

While they are deciding, make even more art.”

Why don’t you join me along my journey and follow me on fbgo and tw if you prefer and see what I come up with next. You may, of course, also 

Drop me a comment and you’ll make me smile!
