Stolen Words: Bah-Bah-Bah


Well, we might not have Neil with us in the Blogging 101 classroom like the fans above had him at the game with them, but that’s okay, I think we can pull this off.  And you never know … maybe in this world-wide blogosphere we’re in, maybe he is with us?  Anyway, with or without Neil, let’s make the follow buttons shake, the like keys rattle, and the comment boxes roll with a very loud collective singing of BAH-BAH-BAH to celebrate our time together in The Commons.

Thank you all for being a part of my journey and for sharing your travels with me.  I learned lots, had fun, and made new friends.  I hope to see you again along the side of the road one day, either virtually here on my blog or who knows, maybe even in the “real world” – whatever that is anymore!  Happy trails everyone … Marianne

Stolen Words are my compilations of lyrics used to make a new piece of prose of sorts.  The lyrics are “stolen” from the songs I hear while surfing my favourite channels on SiriusXM and  I hope you enjoy them – I have a blast writing them!

Bah-Bah-Bah was written for my classmates over in The Commons, the gathering place of questions, ideas, and pats on the back for those taking WordPress’ Blogging 101 Course: Zero To Hero, July 2015.

  1. I’d like to meet the bloggers in real life too.It would be so much fun. I will sing in my language you will in yours. Can you imagine how many different songs in different languages we’ll hear in the Blogosphere? It would be awesome. 🙂

  2. Very beautiful! I agree it would be wonderful to all be singing in unison; and I do hope we all stay in touch, either in the blogosphere or else ‘along the side of the road’. BAH-BAH-BAH!! 😀
