Once upon a time, in a kingdom far away, (I always wanted to write those words) there lived a beautiful princess and a handsome prince. But this story is not about them. We already know they lived happily ever after, as is the way with such things.
This cute and sweet, yet powerful and moving tale takes place in Bloggaria where the land proliferates with active and happy Bloggers. A most joyous place to be. There were constantly those from elsewhere always relocating to Bloggaria. Yahooians, even people from the mighty Googlanations would show up with all their talents requesting refuge, the Youtubians most frequently.
Of course the Bloggarians (henceforth known as bloggers) never said no, filled with love and tenderness they never turned anyone away. They were gentle and big hearted people who loved to share their land with others. Their motto “Ad blog est ad amorem, ad blog est esse” (Yes amazingly they spoke latin too).
The land of Bloggaria was rich with the sounds of music and laughter from it’s people. The land itself a sweeping landscape of glorious colors and textures. One never tired of visiting Bloggaria. Point in fact no one wanted to leave. The bloggarians communicated with several different languages, twittery and faceboo and a few others.

Thank you Lyn. This was fun for me too! 🙂
As princess Steffina was cursed by a strong bellowing jinx (caught a really bad cough) and is now in recovery at the Emerald Island where her beloved prince as well as many fairies and angels are treating her to be well, again, she is only sending you a short message – nonetheless filled with love:
Hello gracious and gentle as always Steffina, so good to see you. Steffi, I am so sorry for your illness and hope that beautiful Ireland and your prince will make the much needed positive difference dear friend, Jack and Emma also send their love to you. As of course do I along with flowing currents of healing energy, take care of you, Much love always, Penny xoxo
Thanks a lot, healing energies are currently highly appreciated! – Yep, it’s not fu to go on holiday and then spend most of the time in bed (today is the first day I am feeling a positive change)… But hey, at least it’s really nice, here!
Your fairytale lifted my spirits, though! 🙂
Much love to you – and also to Jack and Emma!
I’m so glad this fairytale helped a little bit Steffi and I’ll keep sending the healing vibes (always a good thing). Hope you just keep feeling better and better my friend. I’ll pass on your love to Jack and Emma. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you also, much love, Penny 🙂
Yes! Happy St. Patrick’s Day, of course! (although belated, now…)
Thank you, Penny, and have a grand start into the week!
I totally loved reading this! My sparkly pink wings spreading love and awareness, sending kisses to you my dear friend Penny and to all the beautiful kingdom! Blessings and much love! 🙂
Thank you Ruby, Yes I see you now flying above the fray spreading love, kindness and gentleness. Blessings returned to you in full, 🙂 xo

Penelope the Wise, Penelope the Gifted, Penelope the Nurturer…need I go on. This was fabulous! I cannot imagine how long this took to write, but knowing you, you whipped it out in a few minutes (lol)! This was absolutely delightful Penny! 😀
Well it did indeed take a piece of time. But LuAnn, so well worth it to be connected and interactive with the amazing and wonderful world of bloggers. We inspire each other greatly, and that all by itself a glorious thing. That we become friends as well – a huge positive bonus, my very very special dear friend, all my love to you and Terry, Penny xo
Much love to you as well Penny. 🙂
I agree Alastair is noble indeed.
What a beautiful way to honour so many wonderful bloggers – so many there that I know and love and so many for me to check out ASAP! That you for this delightful piece of whimsy! 🙂
Indeed a true pleasure for me, a bountiful one with so many amazing bloggers out there to meet and get to know as friends, just like you, 🙂 xx

Reblogged this on catnipoflife and commented:
What a novel idea and it came from the brilliant Penny Coho. If you do not know Penny, I suggest you let this post be a mere sample of her wild and wonderful imagination that soars with inspiration. Welcome to the land of Bloggaria!
This is absolutely AWESOME, BRILLIANT, SPLENDIFEROUS! What a wild and wonderful imagination, Penny! REBLOGGING on catnip. I can’t wait to visit all the links, some I know but there are certainly some new ones. Oh, dear, how can I ever keep up following so many blogs? 😆
Thank you Sharla, it was most joyous, the fun of it all with so many wonderful bloggers, and these but a drop in the proverbial bucket. Aren’t all bloggers just super, dearest friend of mine! 🙂 xo
What a wonderful idea, it was great fun to read and I am sure as you say fun to write. I love this magical land Bloggaria and will remain there for a long time! Thank you Penny! xx
Thanks, and yes fun to write and share, most definitely a pleasure Ute, thank you very much, dear friend! 🙂 xx
This was a brilliant idea! You are gifted with imagination.
Thank you Deana, this was a world of fun and I’m still enjoying myself with the comments from wonderful bloggers like yourself, thanks again my friend! 🙂
Greetings Pen Elope the Wise. 😀
Normally I run a mile from posts with multi-links BUT in this case I have enjoyed your story and really do appreciate the work that you have put into making this a great post. Well done. May the farce be with you. Love Ralph the Wise (a lot of wisdom floating around here 😉 ) xox
Thank you so kindly Ralph the Wise (you are you know). Yes we are a team of “wise ….” but fun loving also, a good thing. Yes I love it “May the ‘farce’ be with you as well dear friend! Penny 🙂 xo
Penelope the Wise indeed!!! I see there is a lot more for me to explore in bloggaria than I have previously seen, no matter as a knight I shall make it my quest to wander around to all corners of this mighty and vibrant kingdom and have a nosy. Your description of Boomiebolina made me laugh. Once again your exceptional talent comes to light and the smiles begin.
Ah fair and true knight of the vast realm that is bloggaria, Come what sorrow can, It cannot countervail the exchange of joy’ (yes these bits are from my guy “Bill”) … ‘Tis a shrewd doubt, though it be but a dream.’
Thanks SteJ, this is fun, glad you liked it my friend! 🙂
Glad to be involved, fair lady, I shall amble about with my trusty STEed, and create derring do and leave my legend behind, the legend of stabbing myself with my sword most probably. People will run when they hear my armour clank, run to get their camera films do YouTube may enjoy my latest mishap.
Fear not brave knight. If YouTube hears of your epic adventures through Bloggaria, you shall in truth be a brave knight of the realm having conquered multimedia as well! (infamous also!) 🙂
Annexing other empires for Bloggaria’s glory….we shall rule all worlds through subtle words, wit and all round awesomeness and I shall bring a smudge of comedy to distract everyone as we do it.
It was fun to read!have nice day-
Thanks Stefan, it was fun for me also – so special friend of mine! Much love, Penny

Hello again Ivonnella, my warrior and a fairy princess (I couldn’t decide so made you both) Cool huh! You get to travel around all of Bloggaria and do neat stuff! 🙂 xx
I love that you made me a warrior and a princess so totally cool.

Reblogged this on sharing me myself and i and commented:
I love this enchanting world of Bloggaria! It’s filled with lots of great spirit, positive vibes & a natural magic. Penelope the Wise is the great leader of that land & reigns it with grace & class. My top mission is sprinkling pixie dust & spreading smiles everywhere I go. The best job I’ve ever had! 😉
It is the fair and daring Rosita. thank you kindly RoSy. Isn’t this fun though. Yeah I like your job too. The air’s a little thin up here in the mountains I think I’ll come hang out with you, sprinking pixie dust! 🙂 xo
Now that was a fun post.. and I did enjoy…
Thank you very much bulldog, it was fun for me too!

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL !!!
Ah mystical mage/sage of the mountain Penelope the Wise, what a beautiful land you inhabit . I am so happy and bright that I am such a sprite, I may flitter and flutter hroughout the night in this wonderful land of Bloggeria!! thank you so much for including me I am so humbled.
I follow probably 2/3rds of those mentioned …what a wonderful world we share and you my friend are majestically talented. therefore I am calling for a vote we should give you cape. crown and wand and call you “Her Majestey the Queen Penelope”!!
Thank you Lenaria. And thank you Len, my dear friend, for your lovely praise, and compliments, a queen would have too many responsibilities. I like sitting up there on the mountain top away from the hustle, and bustle. much affection, Penny xx
ah but you milady have a point there 🙂 I shall just have to hop skip and fliter my way to the top to visit someday…although as a sprite it may take a while (we are so easily distracted you know ) love and hugs my friend (((xx)))
Really creative. I enjoyed visiting blogger land.
Thank you very much. It was a lot of fun for me also.
keren banget = very awesome
mengalir indah = flow nicely
tulisan yang mengagumkan = amazing writing
what more can i say.. T_T
this could be the begining of a new epic novel or movies !!
sorry with my english hope you understand 😛
Thank you so much, I understood perfectly my friend, 🙂
I, Squire Jules, do forthwithly request admittance to Bloggaria, hailing from the glen of Oz, county of Baum within Googlanations. Recognizing Sage Mage Penelope the Wise and the many other mythical, mystical, and magical folks that there dwell within.
Respectfully submitted from the refracted reflections and infinite ‘muse’ voices of opal gems,
Paige of Jewels…JulesPaige
Though the green icon of silver maple seeds leads to poetic pauses;
100 finite words can thusly be found here:
And now that the hour is nigh, and sleeps breathes out of by beloved by draconian snores, beside me, I bid you all.
It is indeed my distinct honor Squire Jules to admit you to the land of Bloggaria with all the freedoms, rights and privileges that go along with being a creative blogger, which you certainly are. You are most worthy Sir! And a lot of fun too! 🙂 Penny
Ah, again, a gender confusion T’is but nought the first nor to be the last…alas I am but a lass…
Perhaps after first bless with a son, Father expected a second child to share the family ‘Jewels’…
Names can be both a blessing and well a pain where one sits…especially non-de-plumages.
Humor doth go a very, very long way 🙂
JulesPaige = Words are like Jewels on a Page.
Not to worry, being a mage of considerable magic power I’ll have this confusion fixed up forthwith Jules. The word squire confused me. I had originally thought you were a lass – re: friday fictioneer readings/comments). So go forth Jules now to be known as Jewel. (Sorry for the mix-up) the air is thin up here on the mountain top. I must breath deeper so my brain keeps working correctly! Thanks for correcting me. Sleep well Princess Jewel! Penny xx
There are advantages to being second born…Princess Jewel…I squire the great Muse Pending, Queen of Wordsworth.
Only up at this uncommon hour because my beloved ‘is ever on call’ and was poke and prodded to rescue a vendor in some far off land. Without Draconian lullabies my own dreams escaped. Thus I had time to pay the mystical mountain top a visit. But even so…my eyes, and breath grow weak…dreamland’s arms call to me out of the mists….
If it pleases my Lady Mage I have to offer a name for our Yin/Yang magical circle writing table that expands with need to all manner of creative being providing instantly at the thought meade, tea or coffee…with my own heritage lingering and with the help of ‘Translator Google’ please consider the romantic: “La Scrivania Rotonda di Bloggaria”
What a fantastic and romantic title Jules. I love it! Thank you for the offer, and I agree an ever expanding Yin/Yang magical circle writing table! Love it! (I know said that already, felt the need to repeat it!) 🙂
I absolutely adore this!!! You increasingly outdo yourself…Brilliant indeed!!! I love fairy tale concept and of course….how could I not love my character?!?!? 😀 Love you!!!! ❤
Ah yes, the Goddess Christinatia, thank you so much for taking the time to comment from your busy other-worldly activities. I am most pleased to see you here! And I love you too! 🙂 xo
I do have my priorities….but shall always endeavor to shower you with my praise and encouragement as you have done for me…oh so very often!! 😉 ❤
How enchanting and clever!
Thank you it was great fun. I didn’t include all the ones I wanted to, it was just getting too lengthy, so I’ve decided on a part two for this! 🙂
Penny, I am speechless! This was absolutely delightful, beautiful and creative! You are truly gifted, my friend, and I am honored and touched to be a part of this fairy tale; truly I am! In thanking you, I curtsy, as well, to the one and only, Penelope the Wise! Simply awesome! Sending hugs! Lauren
Hi Laurenella, you make a wonderful princess and an even better friend. Thank you very much, xx
I am in absolute awe Penny. What beauty, creativity and talent you have. This “Blogospheric Fairy Tale” is an extraordinary and delightfully fun, entertaining and artistic piece, and also shows another side of your amazing gift as not only a talented writer but an exceptional media artist as well. And, I am Oh So Deeply humbled and honored to be part of this beautiful fairy tale. It is such a constant joy to know you and to see and feel your ever present support not only of me and my work but of so many others. As I have told you before and can’t help but to say it again, you make me aspire to be a better blogger. And for that as well, I am deeply grateful.
With absolute delight at your new work and with the warmest of wishes,
Your gentle wilderness guide, Rick
Thank you most sincerely Rick, I treasure my friendship with you as well. I return the warm wishes my gentle wilderness guide, with much affection. Penny, (and this was a lot of fun for me also!)
Penny, what a lot of work you put into this and how brilliant it is too! So touched that you mentioned me and I am so delighted to be a ‘gentle fairy princess who cares and nourishes’ – what a lovely way to end the week. I will be checking out the bloggers I don’t already know. Thank you so very, very much, Dear Penelope the Wise. Much love to you from across the sea, Ruth xxxx
Thank you Ruthnina, I felt the description suited you quite nicely. Do check out the others, each is special and unique (all bloggers are of course) Much love, Penny xo
So kind!! I am just looking at a few other bloggers right now Penny xx
Great, electrifying, enchanting… I’ve exhausted my adjectives! Thanks for sharing!!
Thank you Seyi, so many more I still want to include! 🙂
AnElephantCant claim he’s a wizard
Though this blog just makes him so happy
He is no great troubadour
But he does so adore
The wise lady who calls herself Penelope
An elephantcan’tbe serious
A wizard he must be
His words are sublime
He always does rhyme
So a minstrel also is he.
As a mage can always “see”!
Well that was fun! 🙂
Penny, hands down, my favourite post of yours. I absoloutely love, love, love this. You are truly amazing my dear friend.
Thank you Amber. Much appreciate your loving compliments my friend, xo

This is ……. awesome 😀 If you don’t already follow any of the blogs here (well you must read at least one … you’re reading mine) then I suggest you click the link and select follow. Penny has outdone herself with her post this time.
Thanks again! xx
You’re welcome Penny. It is fantastic!!
Thank you very much, it was great fun to write! Warm seasons greetings to you. And the very best New Year you can have! 🙂
Thank you and same to you beautiful one 🙂
If I could swear,, I would tell you just how awesome that is. As I was reading through, I thought “This should be told by Penny the Wise” It’s great Penny .. better than great
Thank you Alastair. It was a little bit more work than usual but a lot of fun! 🙂
It was fun to read 😀
I must say though, it gives it away as fiction when you called me noble. I suppose it was close. 😉
In my eyes Lord Alastair, You are definitely viewed as noble. t’was the word that first came to mind when I thought of you and your gentle loving personality along with the multi-talent of words,photos and music that you share with others on your blog dear friend of mine! 🙂 xo
You are kind for saying so
No I am sincere, a huge difference there! 🙂
