Many of our readers may have noticed – and hopefully read – Southport resident Lisa Dingle’s blog, “Just Ponderin” on the Boothbay Register and Wiscasset Newspaper websites. Lisa has been writing the blog since August 2012 – the woman has over 6,000 followers! She began sharing it on the newspaper sites in October 2017.

On her blog site, there’s all kinds of info, for example, in 2015 the blog was nominated for the award “Most Inspiring Blog,” at the Annual Bloggers Bash. Votes were counted in London (yes, the U.K. capital) and “Just Ponderin got second place in the category. Lisa shared the news, adding the description of the category: "The Most Inspiring Blog Award again does what it says on the tin. A blogger who consistently inspires you. A blogger that’s thought provoking and inquisitive. Or perhaps they have become a muse to you with constant provision of inspiration. A blogger who touched your heart and inspired you."

Pretty awesome! Now, if you aren’t reading Just Ponderin yet, you might want to check it out. One of my favorite pages is “Dingleisms.” Here are a few of my faves: “The Vampire Room – The room in Maine that was once a three season porch that was sinking into the ground, but is now (we hope) somewhat sturdy. It is our wake up room (with comfy chairs), and also doubles as a dining room. It is painted this red color and has windows all along three of the walls, so at night when it is super dark outside and all the windows are black, it reminded us of a paneled room from a Dracula movie. And who wouldn’t want to live with that?!”

And, one more! “The Chipmunk Channel - The shepHerds’ (and all dogs who have gone before) favorite channel to watch in Maine (basically we just throw the windows open in the Vampire Room and they climb into their comfy chairs, lean their chins on the window sill, and boob in front of the “tv.” The chipmunks on the front lawn can entertain for hours.” You’ll have to check her site out for more:

Lisa Dingle’s blog posts are entertaining, engaging and humorous. Read them and see for yourself!
