Hi All,

First I want to let you all know that AngelBaby who has been with us here in the community for years took a little turn for the worse and is in the hospital. Please keep her in your prayers and if you would stop by her blog, Your Caring Angels, that would be nice, she asked me to take care of it while she was unable to post and I found a draft you will like that she had not published yet. You will find the post here

The next is I would like to welcome the latest featured blogger to the BlogDumps community.
Check out their blog… We have all been there for sure. With their services they make life a bit easier!

Now for the BlogDumps News…

This Saturday starting at 5pm Eastern Standard Time USA we will be performing Necessary Data base server maintenance. This will start with a database dump (in real word we are going to back up and save your stuff) this will lock the database server for about 15 to 30 minutes so don’t panic you may go to your blog and see nothing there. It’s ok it will come back online shortly.

After this backup we will start the optimization to the database to clean it up and get rid of the unnecessary tables (all the junk not needed to run the site.) This will take some time but we are going to do it one site at a time so it doesn’t affect everyone site wide at one time, also we will only be doing the data tables that need this maintenance. During this time across the BlogDumps site you may experience a little lag in loading but rest-assured it will only be for a little while and then we will be able to serve you better and faster.

BlogDumps has seemed to be growing at a very fast rate so this is a very important and necessary maintenance.

I would also like to thank all of the BlogDumps Bloggers who have built a blog here on BlogDumps that have hit the subscribe button to help with all the costs that it takes to run the site. We will continue to grow and registrations will stay open if more continue to subscribe. You will find the Subscribe button on your BlogDumps dashboard.

And to all of you that have generously donated to the BlogDumps cause to help us continue it is much appreciated 🙂

That’s it for the news this week as always I am around to help! You can find the help and contact button in the footer of the front page of BlogDumps.

The best thing about today….. Tomorrow is Friday 🙂


A Word On Wednesday

Share On FaceBook

I normally don’t post on Wednesday but I wanted to announce a couple of the newest blogs and members of the BlogDumps community.

The first one, Windshield Replacement Phoenix – provides auto glass repair in Arizona. They offer cash back with any insurance approved auto glass claim.

I don’t know about you but I have had many a stone come flying through the air and break the windshield.
The time it takes to have to take the car into the shop and have it repaired and then either drop it off or have to wait is unbearable. But this company has mobile windshield technicians that come to you to replace or repair your windshield! How cool is that!!! I think this is an awesome idea.
Thanks for joining the BlogDumps community guys and for doing a good service to the people in Arizona 🙂

The second is Pubs: Then & Now A very nice blog with a lot of cool photos, some new and some old of pubs in the England. The author writes:

The Pub is one of the few great cultural icons of Britain. We are currently in a phase where the future of the pub is in doubt. This blog is to show how pubs have changed (or not) over the past 10+ years. I first started taking pictures of pubs in 1987 and have amassed quite a collection. Most of these pubs are within easy walking distance of the English Canals and most are based in the Midlands. Apart from a (very) few I have drunk in every pub pictured (and sometimes been drunk in them!)

I can appreciate that 🙂 The blog is great I love the layout and the cool descriptions of the pubs in each post. He even has a blog he follows that I am sure Bud would like The Pub Curmudgeon …LOL

Friday At The Dump!

TGIF! I am so glad it is Friday and it is beautiful out side… I love this time of year! It’s nice to just be outside and enjoy the weather, the leaves will be changing soon. I hope all of you had a great week, mine was a busy one – but that’s a good thing!

I had mentioned earlier in the week since I didn’t dump a bunch of you new members Saturday that I would make it up to you all during the week 🙂 So I am dumping you all on Friday… In fact I may start doing some things differently around here so stay tuned… LOL

life stories of a blogwalker

I received this in my mail, as some of you did, from the discussion forum announcements.

I would like to say that Vikki North has some of the coolest art work I have seen! If you have a moment please stop by and check her out! Some of her work has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning! Don’t miss out on great art at amazing bargain prices!

I would love to have one of the Sunday Morning prints to give to Trina, it’s her favorite show and she loves the different suns!!!

I love the way Vikki wrote to us all she is so up front:

Well this is really shameless promotion. I’m having an End of the Summer Sale on all my own artwork 10% off everything in The Red Chair Gallery- and The Original Art Gift Site – .

BTW- I’ve placed some Originals on SALE FOR $100 and some prints as LOW AS $49. Shocked

Come check it out. Maybe you’ll get some of your Holiday shopping done early. If you want to say hello- or need info- this is my blog address. I’d love to hear from you.

(And yes- I’m also the owner of The Artist Challenge and Inferno. I’m a starving artist too! Wink 😉

Vikki, your art work is wonderful and inspiring 😀 I hope you sell out!

Have a great Friday!

The Artist Challenge – Saturday’s Feature

I don’t know if you all have been to The Artist Challenge, but you MUST stop by while you are blog surfing! Talk about tons of cool art!

I found myself gazing at pictures and just having a good time enjoying fine artwork. The only way it could be better is if I was standing in a live gallery surrounded by all the pieces!

Most of you know that I am a BIG FAN of CBS Sunday Morning. I am amazed and awestruck that CBS has aired 3 of their 2010 Sun Art Submissions in just two months. If you aren’t familiar with the sun art concept, Sunday Morning ends every story segment with a picture of a sun. Every sun is unique to every story – it’s really pretty neat! And to have 3 suns aired in 2 months, that is simply amazing! Curious to see one? Check out The Artist Challenge #26 – 2010 CBS SUNDAY MORNING SUN ART You’re sure to be amazed by all the suns!

Are you an artist? “The challenge can be done in any style or medium the artist chooses. (Painters, Sculptures and craftsmen are all welcome.) Each member is given 30 days to render their concept and post their masterpiece on The Artist Challenge site by the specified drop dead date.”

The current challenge is Under the Sea. Stop by and take a look at all the submissions and interpretations of the challenge. You will be amazed – If you’re like me, you’ll be there a while 😉

BlogDumps News on Wednesday?

Yes, I am a day early but I am sure you all won’t mind… Me? Early? I know.. LOL
BlogDumps is ringing in the new year with a lot of new members dumping their blogs so I would like to say welcome to the community 🙂

Make sure to check out the newest member and Featured blog Chasing A Noodle I will do a review on it this coming Saturday on the Saturday Night Dump. Thanks for the support we appreciate it, all the support helps keep new features coming to the BlogDumps community.

Not much to report as far as BlogDumps goes all is running smoothly. I just updated BlogDumps Bloggers blogs to the latest version of WordPress and updated the plugins site wide. It went very smooth, no issues that I have seen, if you find something that looks or is acting strange let me know.

I added a few more backgrounds to the Twitter background maker if you have any suggestions for backgrounds let me know and I will add them. I hope you find this free service working well for you, let me know if you have trouble I will lend a hand.

We are still a bit behind in adding blogs to the directory but we will get to all of you as soon as we can, we check each and every blog manually to make sure it’s not a spam blog or porn blog. Yes we are a human edited directory but that keeps the site clean. If you would like to be added and put in the front of the line try our guaranteed inclusion on the blog submission page it’s a small one time fee.

Believe it or not ,I am still working on the BlogDumps Video area of the site I am trying to add some new up to date features but for now all is working well. I just want a couple of new features on it that I have been working on.

That’s it for this week remember you can always get me on the BlogDumps Instant messenger– user name Wolfbernz – you can download it here. Text, send files and video chat with friends and family around the world.

Have a great week

Featured Blog – The Artist Challenge

On first look one can not grasp the depth of beauty and passion stirred by The Artist Challenge. This site is an inspiration to those who participate in the monthly challenges and those who view the results from challenges past.

On their “What the Heck is this Site?” page I found the following:

What is The Artist Challenge?
The Artist Challenge is ‘dare’ between artists. Example: “How would a foolish soul like you portray ‘Hope’ in a singular image or artwork?”

How does it work and what are the requirements?
The theme for the challenge will be clearly defined at the first of every month with links to research the subject. It’s origins may come from the artists, patrons or some other unlikely spirit.

The challenge can be done in any style or medium the artist chooses. (Painters, Sculptures and craftsmen are all welcome.) Each member is given 30 days to render their concept and post their masterpiece on The Artist Challenge site by the specified drop dead date.

Of course, there is more to the page, but you have to go to The Artist Challenge to read it – I’m not giving away all the details!

The artwork submitted on each challenge is amazing! Their last challenge, Art Challenge#20- Shifting Shadows was actually posted last night and the artwork- all we can say is Wow! 11 artists participated and each work of art was so different – every interpretation was unique! I really love how every piece of artwork submitted has artist details and details about that particular piece of art when you click on it.

If you are an art lover, or collector – heck, if you like to look at awesome things, you gotta check out The Artist Challenge! If you are an Artist of any kind, I encourage you to participate as one artist wrote

“These challenges are changing my work. Have commented; some where, about this. No longer to I approach a piece with a concept only. Tend to ponder it for a while, what is it saying not only to my eyes, but my heart and mind and if it turns out well it represents a part of my soul. Look at the rendition we each come up with and the world becomes more a touching compassionate loving “complete” world. Truly am very fortunate to be a part of this gallery of Artists.”

The Artist Challenge
is a great asset to our community and I hope you all enjoy the site as much as I do.

Saturday Morning on the East Coast

It’s so beautiful outside that I can’t wait to do a little gardening! I think that I might even go for a nice quiet boat ride this afternoon – I use a small trolling motor on the John boat, it’s so quiet that you can sneak up on turtles and heron and not even bother them.

I want to tell you about a new member of the BlogDumps Community, Margaret’s BookShelf. Margaret just started this blog and being the book lover that I am I can’t wait to read her reviews on the books shes reading! In her post, About my Blog, she describes the design and layout of her blog and future plans for her blog.

My Reviews

I plan to list the following for each of my book reviews:

* Title/Author/Series Info
* Star Rating
* Main Characters and Point of View
* Age Appropriateness and Genre
* Summary of Book
* A Quote
* My Thoughts/Opinions
* The Bottom-line

I love the “The Bottom Line” part.

Saturday’s Featured Blog!


I stopped by this blog before it became a featured blog – just poking around as we all do.

I found myself falling right into the page, it has a great appeal and, well, being an animal lover there were baby cheetahs in a post titled The Whoosh of Rain Forests, the Rustle of Savannas – well you know the rest…lol – I had a good time and found the Arkist Blog informative and a good read… I will be back! It’s great!

I found this on the ARKist about page and it just sums up what the Arkist Blog is about in a nut shell for you – but really you should take a look for yourself.

ARKist publishes eco-news and opinion about practical approaches and solutions to what’s ailing the global environment. Yes, we said global. We have lived in or traveled through many countries, some on the brink of environmental disaster. The people who live in such trouble spots understand more than most how crucial it is we clean up our thoughtless leavings and develop the technology, practices, laws and behavior that will return us to a healthy world. So we’ve been there, and now we have a deep appreciation for workable ideas and impressive advances, plus all the ups and downs that go with those. Our beat is international ecology—the interconnectedness of living things on this small blue sphere.

Join us navigating these waters in search of a world that can survive.
