Hive馃悵Talk - Adios, Au Revoir, Ciao, Totsiens, Namaste, Adeus, La revedere


Hive馃悵Talk - Adios, Au Revoir, Ciao, Totsiens, Namaste, Adeus, La revedereHi Everyone!

It is with a heavy heart that my Hive聽馃悵 Talk series must come to an end. While I enjoy the process of putting together posts that feature fellow bees and highlight their worthy contributions to beBee, my time no longer permits this pleasurable experience.

I find the beBee.com platform a warm and friendly place to be and appreciate the opportunity given to those of us that enjoy expressing our views.聽

With that said, WordPress is my go-to for writing for various reasons. I am dedicated to writing poetry and run two blogs to fulfill my passion. Also, I contribute to other WordPress blogs, as well as share my work on other poetry dedicated sites. I feel I have a fulltime job and I enjoy every minute.


This does not mean I am leaving beBee! I will still buzz around read, comment and share the posts by beBee's very talented writers.

Cheers!

Thank you Joyce \ud83d\udc1d Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee, and my apologies for the late response.

You made the beBee world go 'round, Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador. You encouraged people and made them feel at home. That is a very hard thing to do. I'm sure you'll find a different niche that will be just as successful in doing so.

Thank you for your kind words Milos Djukic. I wish you much success and good health.

Dear Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador, I was impressed by your kindness and the way you promote and help others. It is a unique example of how people should behave in social media and elsewhere. Your posts were always brilliant and more than that deeply human with a strong sense of compassion, care, and the utmost kindness. Your influence on this platform was tremendous, and it will stay like that. Thank you for everything. I wish you all the best, and yes, you are a great poet.

Aw...huge loss for beBee. However, I see quite a lot of new writers here I was not familiar with before...so I'm certain beBee will survive! I see your work on Twitter, so Ill be lookin' for the next 'Brew and Spew'....Be well Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador;-)

Thank you for your lovely comment . Recently, I read where beBee is going to be revamped and perhaps I will bring the series back to life. I run a weekly challenge on WordPress and I'm thrilled with the results but it is keeping me very busy. Take care and stay safe. 鉂わ笍

Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador Thank you for taking the time for doing the series for such a long time. I think this was ever since we joined beBee. You are an amazing person and yes I follow your posts on Wordpress. Sending love and best wishes your way 鉂わ笍

Thank you for gracing my feed with your beautiful posts.

Thank you Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador for all you did for other bees. You surely are deeply loved and treasured.

Thank you for letting me know, Lada. I have fixed many buzzes by replacing the missing images. Concerning this post, I don't see any missing images. However, I get the 404 error on my smartphone, as well. I'll contact the beBee support team.

Franci, I can't open any of your beBee blog posts on my smartphone due to 404 error. It says: "404 Oops! The page you requested does not exist, check the address or access the homepage." Everything works on the desktop except missing images. One image is missing in this post too (the last one). I think you should contact beBee support team to solve the error.

Fay, when I put together my Hive Talk posts, I select several articles written by the bee I am featuring. I also include the image they included specific to their articles. In addition, I create a profile pic for each bee I feature (which is the top of my post). I notice that some of these images are missing, for example, if the collage image with your pic goes missing, the intent of my post loses its value. I don't know why some images just disappear and I have gone back and fixed some of them such as my post for Ken Boddie. I included you in my Hive Talk collage because of your genuine posts and comments.

Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador I am a very mindful, detail-oriented person ... I will go looking for a lost word or thought till I find it (sometimes I can't ... but its not because I didn't try ;~) When you mention "images missing" what do you meant ?? PS~ I just noticed my pic in the "Hive Talk Finale" collage ... I'm honored to be included ;~)

Hi, Fay! Thank you for your comment on my blog! I feel with any social media platform, people come and people go. I enjoy beBee and will still buzz around. Regarding Hive Talk, even though time-consuming, I enjoyed it. With that said, as I was browsing through my older Hive Talk posts, I noticed images missing on a few of them and was disappointed. I feel they don't have the same value when things are missing.

Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador Oh Franci~ I am saddened to read this Being fairly new to beBee I have come upon many a special bee ... that have flown off ... and for various reasons we no longer see Blessed are those bees that you put in the spotlight ;~) I do understand the constraints of time & focus I shall be visiting you where you are "blossoming"

Most welcome! I'll still be around!

So few of the old beBee bloggers left, Franci. Hope that you will still hang around and not flit off to fresher pastures.

Franci, please don't be a stranger here. I enjoy your cogent comments. And so it goes.

Thank you for your kind comment, Lada. I enjoyed the process of creating my Hive Talk posts and it's fascinating to go back and read the older posts. However, it is time-consuming and as I mentioned, poetry is my passion and WordPress is the best site to showcase it. Plus, I write for other bloggers and contribute poetry to sites other than WordPress, as well. And, I am working on my 3rd book of poems and attempting to do my own illustrations! I will still be buzzing around beBee. 馃悵馃悵馃悵

I accidentally removed my comment. Here it's again. Good to know you'll still buzz around. :) I can only repeat what I said in a comment on one of your posts from the Hive 馃悵 Talk series - Franci, YOU ROCK! Thank you for all the effort and time you put in the series. You've been promoting new hives, trending articles "hot off the press", but also people behind those hives and articles for over three and a half years. As I recall, the first Hive Talk is from June 2016. People like you make beBee unique and worth spending time on. :)

"Poetry, a seasonal state of mind"- this is your eloquent writing dear Franci\ud83d\udc1dEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador. I am sure your active presence on beBee shall be greatly missed. *You have been a driving power of understanding and caring for others as evidenced by your superb contributions such as Hive Talk. I wish you success wherever you go.
