this is... my favourite thing from nature


I just can't decide on a favourite when it comes to this one!! I love too many things that nature has to offer, from the smallest birds, to the bluest skies, to autumn leaves, white beaches and rainforests too!

It may come as no surprise that I have been finding it difficult to keep up with hosting 'This Is' and after much thought I have made the decision that it is time to wrap it up. I'm open to anyone wanting to take it over too. I want to say a BIG thank you to all the 'This Is' players for playing along and sharing a part of you. It has been fun! : )

Michelle said...

Thank you for hosting This is! I've had a ball, even though I haven't been able to keep up with the posts myself. Maybe it's time has come to say goodbye?

Maureen said...

Yes, nature is a hard category to pick from...my first thoughts are the edible natural world. ;-)

Thanks for hosting, and I think things happily run their course. When one door (meme) shuts, another one is probably waiting in the wings.

Jenny said...

I agree with the nature one-too many wonders to just pick one. The this is.... meme has been so wonderful. I want to thank you so much for hosting it and I have met many new blogging friends through it. It certainly ran along time and has been very popular. Thanks again:)

Lisa said...

Just wanted to post a big thank you for hosting.

My thanks also - it was my first meme too!

Lilli boo said...

Yes, "Thank you" too Angela for hosting this meme..so many great "This is" moments..there were some real gems (maybe a last "Highlights of 'This is.."?). Regardless everyone's efforts each week were Inspirational...I have enjoyed being part of my very first meme..take care. Lil x

mellimoomoo said...

Thank you so much for hosting this is and very sad to hear "this is" will be no more :( It was my first meme too, and my favourite... really helped get me started with blogging and provided much inspiration and introductions to some beaut people.

THE ESSESS said...

Thanks for hosting, it has been graet to have a theme to write about when you don't know what to post!!

cindy said...

I am with everyone else, it too was my first meme and it lead me to lots of other great sites. I am more than happy to carry it on if people still want to play it. Thanks for all your time and effort to host it. It was great exposure for my blog, great idea to share the blog love around.

Bird Bath said...

Thankyou Angela, for hosting 'this is'. I have enjoyed being a part of it and catching up with bloggy pals. Many wondeful suggestions and common threads to peruse each week.

Samantha said...

Thanks so much for 'this is', I love finding out what the theme for the week is and finding out a little about lots of different people! It's been a great way to meet lots of lovely people too :)

Melanie Gray Augustin said...

It's sad to see you end your fabulous hosting of this is, you've done such a great job and we'll all miss you! It's been a lot of fun and I've met so many, great new bloggers through it.

Sasparilla Sue said...

It's funny how for a lot of us this was our first meme. It has been inspirational, uplifting, funny, and many times touching. I'm so thankful to you for creating and hosting it and for letting anybody and everybody join. I think LilliBoo has the right idea. A "best of" or "highlights" of This is... would make a great last post for everybody.

Susanne said...

Thank you for being the hostess with the mostest! I too recently joined This Is... and have enjoyed discovering so many interesting and talented people through it.

Lauren said...

I only joined recently but have thourally enjoyed playing 'this is' - Thank You!

I'm more than a little behind in reading my favourite blogs. Thanks for being the hostess with the mostess. It's been a wild ride!

Pang said...

Thanks a heap for being a wonderful host. Like most, this was also my very meme. I'm sad to see it go.

Naomi said...

I am sorry to see it go and would like to offer to take it over if you would let me and others would be happy.

Let me know what you think :)

Sarah said...

Thanks for this is....! I started very late, but it's been great fun.

And having been such a late starter, I'd love to keep going if Naomi wants to play host to this is version 2.0!!!

Sweet Somethings by Lois said...

Oh Angela you have made me sad :(
I will miss you hosting "This is".
I can understand how time consuming it is for you.
I will still be dropping by to read your blog if you don't mind me doing so. I enjoy reading what you blog and looking at your pictures. Because of your blog I have started reading so many other ones. If Naomi does start hosting the weekly theme I would be happy to continue on.
So I won't say goodby. I just say I'll read you later!
Have a great week.
Lois

Carina said...

Oh no! Can't someone take over hosting? I see a couple intrested just here, commenting. I hope someone can step up to the plate and take over, I would offer but I feel maybe some of the more experienced players should? If anyone does, take over. Please stop by my blog, and drop me a line so I can plat :)

This is a wonderfull blog, and I for one will not stop dropping by.

OH NO! I've been out of the blogosphere for a few weeks and just noticed that 'this is..' is 'no more.' Boo hoo :( Thank you so much for hosting my very first meme - it was a blast!

Propecia works by blocking the enzyme 5 alpha reductase. This reduces the level of hormone, DHT, in the scalp and allows hairs to revert to a normal growth cycle. This results in no further hair loss and significantly new hair growth in men with Male Pattern Hair Loss.
