How It All Began...

A few years ago, our founder, Lola, had an idea! She thought that it would be interesting to search out women living all around the world and ask them to collaborate on a blog where they could share our lives. She had always wanted to travel and see the world. She said "I would throw on a backpack and travel to every country on this planet if my life and means would permit it, but alas, they do not. So this is the next best thing."

Right here on this blog, if you trawl through the archives, you can pretty much travel the world! You can see pictures from Germany, Norway, the Bahamas, Japan, The USA (Philadelphia, Las Vegas, & Utah) Italy, Hong Kong, Dubai, South Africa, Georgia, Canada, England, Finland, and Indonesia through the eyes of the beautiful, smart, talented, funny women who live there. 

Some women have journeyed with us for a little while, others the whole distance so far, but all have left their mark here.

Our current contributors bring us images from The USA (Philadelphia), Canada, Hong Kong, England, France, Italy, Finland, The Netherlands, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand.

Back in the beginning we posted almost every day. Some days, we are all posted to a theme (such as: "This morning's breakfast" or "today's shoes") other days were simply labeled "Today" and each woman shared a little slice of their day - whatever that was!

These days we post thrice weekly, on Monday, Wednesday & Friday, with our Linky-day being a Wednesday, when all our wonderful readers get to join in!

We have always believed that each culture, and each country, and each and every woman on the planet has positive, lovely, and wonderful things to share with those who will listen, and this blog serves as a home for these formidably good things!

We are celebrating the everyday beauty of life and womanhood, and so far it has been a wonder to discover that life is beautiful everywhere, and joy can be found in even the smallest things, such as a morning walk, a great cup of cocoa, the laugh (or mischief) of a child, a letter from someone we love, and of course, the joy of making a new, lifelong friend.

We sincerely hope that you will take this journey with us! It's not aimed at ANYTHING other than connecting, enjoying, and escaping to new and different places. Feel free to comment, ASK QUESTIONS, and start conversations! And please share a link to Communal Global on your blog (if you feel so inclined) and tell other women about it so that they can join in and share with us!

  1. I would love to be a contributor to this site. I love the whole idea of it and have been contributing to the linky on a Wednesday for a long time now. I am in the UK, just outside London. I know you have a UK contributor already but I believe she is up north and so we are in very different areas of the country.

  3. Absolutely love this blog, the whole idea is marvelous! I do believe that we all feel the same in every little corner of the world! I noticed that you don´t have a contributor from Latin America, I am from Venezuela and would love to contribute to your blog! It would be great if you stopped by blog!

  4. One of my FAVORITE places to visit, and a regular contributor. If your "American" photographer ever decides to move on from this sight...please keep me in mind as a replacement! I just adore this whole concept! My blog is "You'll Shoot Your Eye Out" at www.youllshootyoureyeout-kathy.blogspot.com if you want to check out my photography. Thanks! And keep up the fantastic work.
