So Long...

Here it is...

Dec 31st 2018

Almost 9 years of CommunalGlobal blogging...

At the breaking of a new year, it's a new season for us CG girls too. 

In the words of a famous song...

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

There´s a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall,
And the bells in the steeple too.

And up in the nursery an absurd little bird
Is popping out to say "cuckoo!"
Regretfully they tell us; (cuckoo, cuckoo)
But firmly they compel us; (cuckoo, cuckoo)
To say goodbye...

To You...

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

From Bettyl in New Zealand

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, good night.
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight...

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

From Jill in Australia

I've loved sharing my Western Australia with you. 
Thank you Communal Global for welcoming me to your world-wide family.

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu;
Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu...

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

From Susanna in Finland

Thank you for all these years together.

So long, farewell, au revoir, auf wiedersehen.
I´d like to stay and taste my first champagne...

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

From Tamar in The USA

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye.
I leave, and heave a sigh and say goodbye.

From Caroline in England

I've been here almost since the very beginning of this CG collaborative project.
It's been a beautiful place to hang out; with wonderful ladies and stunning images of our families and places.
We've shared births and birthdays, holidays and seasons, shoes & hobbies;
We've shared our lives - and I've loved every one of our 1510 posts! 

The sun has gone to bed and so must I.
So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye.

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye.

From Singwa in Hong Kong

It's been really special being a part of Communal Global, sharing my part of the world with you
and getting a glimpse into life in your neck of the woods, too. Much love xx

Goodbye! 🙋

Hello weekend!
The winter is creeping in over the Northern Hemisphere, and summer is making itself known in the Southern Hemisphere.

Come on in and see what we are up to.

Hello to all you lovely people - our faithful followers.

Did you know that this blog first posted on Jan 2nd 2010 ? - We made it to 9 years old - ALMOST.

Life in Blog-land is very different these days than when we began. Almost nobody blogs daily any more, some folks just about manage a weekly post, but most of us are sporadic bloggers at best.

These day life seems faster and fuller - and maybe the way we flit about the internet is representative of our rapid, sound-bite lives. 

These days we rapidly zip through Facebook or Instagram feeds while we down our morning coffee, or grab our lunch. We peruse while we travel on our daily commute, or wait for the kids to come out of school. We share snapshots of our lives and move on. Yet somehow in all this, we still like to tell our stories..

And, as times change, so we have to adapt and change with them...

To this end, us girls at Communal Global have reached the sad decision to 'close up shop' and cease blogging here at the end of December; our Dec 31st post will be our very last post 😢 and our final farewell... except...

Except we are not disappearing... 

... We are MOVING!! 😊

You can NOW find us on Facebook and Instagram. You can follow us already, but we won't be fully up and running CG over there until the New Year.

We're still figuring out how it will all works atm, but hopefully by January we will have got to grips with our new way of doing things. 

So, why not go and find us... follow us... like us... join us... however you play! 



We also have a public FB group, for all those of you who have been our regular Linky friends - and anyone else who want to join. You'll be able to directly share your own pictures in this group, so it could be a lot of fun... 

We are also planning to still post an InLinkz on our FB page, so if you don't want to join the public group, you can still link up that way too.

We look forward to seeing you here - and there - until the end of 2018 and we will make sure the last post is a positive feast. 

After that this blog will gather dust in the archives - as do so many other wonderful Blogs that have gone before 😢. It'll stay visible (but I will turn off comments) and if you ever fancy a trip down memory lane it'll be here - to look back on  - for posterity & the future!

From all the CG Girls xx


Hello and happy Wednesday all!! Please come in - it's Linky day!!
