About me

About the photo: Life imitates blog. Photo: a ©signature mmm production

https://manjameximovie.wordpress.com/. This one will remain as is.

  • About me is what this blog is all about. Go read that.
  • It’s like editing a newspaper, without Maja Licul to master the technical side and without Vida P. to give me tasks and without a minister or two to take care of visibility. There is just the content. Sorry ’bout that. (Do you know what Slovenians say when introducing themselves? “Excuse me, I’m a Slovenian.”)
  • As it is:

Manja Maksimovič:

not so subtle in a subtle way –

I tell it like it is but keep my voice down.

So much of us is out there and so few of anybody cares.

Thank you to you who do.

  • I might be one of the few bloggers who don’t seem to be about community. Don’t get me wrong: I LOVE to be read and viewed, and enjoy your comments and likes, and I reply too, but I don’t wish to conform in order to get noticed more or liked more.
  • In a way my blog is my scrapbook: here I collect things that I wish to see when I browse back: quotes, songs, poems, images stored to remember the moments when they were taken. And when I write, I write about what really happened.
  • If anybody else likes what I like, so much for the better.
  • I have had this blog for two years now (true for April 2016) and to me it’s a priceless document of two of the three best years of my life, spent in a new country with my new amore and our bestia.
  • Wherever it says MM, own words or own translation, it means me. The meaning of other acronyms, all family and friends, available on request. ADD-IT (February 2016): I’m starting to use the watermark signature mmm on my images.
  • If you use my stuff without telling me about it, the worst possible thing will happen to you when you least expect it.
  • Manja Mexi Movie now on facebook too (what?)

If you wish to learn more about my preferences, here are three lists:

  • The book list is compiled by your recommendations and is always hungry for new ones. Please, click to see if your favourite is already on it! And if not, amend in the comments. Thank you!
  • The movie list belongs to my youth (lately I watch very few movies, if at all).
  • The song list was put together for my first visit in Italy so that we’ll always have the soundtrack of our first meeting. There is a Slovenian, ex-Yugoslav, Italian and worldwide section.

And here is the round-up post inviting you to read my writings. For the orderly. 

Welcome, all. We make mean lasagna.

  1. Hi Manja, I have been nominated in a challenge to post my three favorite quotes, one each for three consecutive days.

    With each post I have to nominate three bloggers for the challenge. I’m sorry, but it is not required to accept. 🙂

    If you accept, you have to recognize the blogger who nominated you. 🙂

    I have nominated you as I love your blog. I hope you don’t mind and hope (if accepted) you have fun with it.

    1. Cosme. Thank you so much, but especially thank you for your words about my work, they made me a bit dizzy. I accept because I love quotes but I don’t know if my nominees will accept (3 bloggers with each post! Nahh! I think I’ll make 3 overall). I’m very happy that you’re enjoying your visits and that you’ve thought of me. Thanks again!


    1. Thank you, I have not been nominated for an award yet, only for a challenge. I don’t think I will start ‘doing’ awards, though, because it’s a vicious circle and everybody who I follow is an inspiration to me. Still, glad to be thought of, thank you.

  4. Well said! Like you, I don’t have any desire to conform to a way of blogging in order to get more likes; I write because I want to share a piece of my perspective, and if it touches others and they respond, then all the better.
