About Mavadelo


My name is Martin

I am born at 18-08-68 in Utrecht, the Netherlands as the last of 8 children in a house bearing number 8. Guess what my favorite number is πŸ˜‰

I have had a live that some of you would call difficult, I am an adoptive child, I have been homeless for many years, have done drugs and am currently taking care of a dissabled wive (whom I met while homeless btw)

many of these I will probably discuss in this blog but if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Although using the nick Mavadelo here (which stands simply for MArtin VAn DEr LOuw) I am better known under the nicknames Whizzy (my ΓΆfficial” nick for over 30 years), a1Whizzy (youtube), daWhizzy (severla gaming sites) or Wh1zzy (twitter) so feel free to drop me a line if you encounter those nicks somewhere

    • Hi Chatycat
      Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging, it’s my pleasure having reblogged your article. We all want our blogs to be seen and reblogging is a good tool for this. If you haven’t done so I would join one (or more) of the facebook share groups. You are welcome in the Blogatorium group of course and I know Shaun from Shaunynews has a share group as well and there are several more groups. Posting your blog links in such groups will certainly bring you some views.

      I did have an interesting life, actually, I still have an interesting life πŸ˜‰ I hope you will meet many new and interesting bloggers on your journey through the blogging world. Incidentally wordpress tells me you posted this at 9:44 am which would mean a 4 hour difference. Not sure that it is correct though since I assume you are Canadian (or at least living there) and Centre Canada to Centre the Netherlands should be a 7 hour difference.

    • Hi Barbara. Thank you for your kind comments. I guess a blog s like a new home. It takes a few months before it gets “gezellig” and I think it is starting to get there. Thanks for the follow and your comments. Baez says Hi with a “wet nose” to Max πŸ˜‰ he says, “nurture your inner wolf and it will help you grow ” πŸ˜€


  3. I would like to say I love your blog and the wonderful and beautiful things you share as well as the inspiration and smiles you bring in doing so! Thank you for being you and I hope even if you do not accept awards you will accept the sentiment expressed as I honor you with one. There is no prize that comes with the award other than my appreciation and being grateful you are part of our world and making a difference by sharing in such a positive way…
    I have posted the award and link to it here I hope you will accept it or at least the sentiment behind it! http://artisticlyxpressedthoughts.wordpress.com/2014/03/27/awards-and-shared-gifts/
