Adlandpro Friday  Roundup|October 4,2013

The  Friday Roundup!

How does one say good bye to a friend and to many people more than a friend?

Friday roundup Branka Babic

I have difficulties coming to terms with the loss of Branka Babic and for those of you who are here for the first time, I’m sure you are wondering what is going on.

Branka Babic was and in our hearts still is a member of Adlandpro. She was a lady who many have described as a
A teacher
A mentor
A Pillar
A Comedian
A Philosopher
An Artist

… and the list goes on

On October 2nd, we woke up not to a birthday celebration but to the shocking news that Branka had passed away in her sleep and we have all been grieving and remembering her each in our own way.

We think of the internet as a cold environment where we live in an insulated virtual world where we do not have feelings, but as we all know when someone who has had such an impact on our lives leaves us, our feelings are very loud and clear and the pain we feel is all too real – That is the power and the risk to being social.

The one thing that Branka shared with me  was  her belief in Adlandpro and her desire for Adlandpro to be the very best social networking/classified/blogging site, the fact is –  it was very important to her. She tirelessly shared and she kept on sharing and then she got her “ladies” together and taught them how to share also.

Her belief in Adlandpro and in me will always stay with me and to that end I am even more determined to work hard to make sure that Adlandpro will rise to the top and stay on top!

As you may have noticed, the site is changing and with changes there can be “glitches”. I am working night and day to make sure that Branka’s dream, your dream and my dream come to reality.  Over the next period of time you are going to see Adlandpro better optimized so that people around the net will find your topics, your advertisements  You will also notice new people coming in who bring with them their expertise and you will notice over time other changes also.

I hope that you will also help Branka with her dream and support and help to share what people are saying and doing on Adlandpro, I know she will be cheering you on!

Here is list of threads on community wall and first reactions to the news that Branka is no more with us.


And Sam has written beautiful poem dedicated to Branka.

Thank you Christina and Dave

Today I went outside and a beautiful tree caught my eye.. I Just started staring at it .and all of a sudden I was reminded of this:
It is the month of October,
A season of change,as the leaves change colors do our lives in a way..Even though things change ,God is making everything new..This too shall pass. Trust in Him , and He will renew your hope. Look to him in these hard times,And He will renew your strength…


Today, upon a bus, I saw a very beautiful woman
and wished I were as beautiful.
When suddenly she rose to leave,
I saw her hobble down the aisle.
She had one leg and used a crutch.
But as she passed, she passed a smile.
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I have two legs; 
the world is mine.

I stopped to buy some 
candy. The lad who sold it
had such charm. I talked with
him, he seemed so glad.
If I were late, it’d do no harm.
And as I left, he said to me, “I thank you, 
you’ve been so kind.
It’s nice to talk with folks like you.
You see,” he said, “I’m blind.”
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I have two eyes;
the world is mine.

Later while walking 
down the street, I saw a
child I knew. He stood and 
watched the others
play, but he did not know what to do.
I stopped a moment and then I said,
“Why don’t you join them dear?”
He looked ahead without a word.
I forgot, he couldn’t hear.
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I have two ears;
the world is mine.

With feet to take me where I’d go.
With eyes to see the sunset’s glow.
With ears to hear what I’d know.
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I’ve been blessed; indeed, the world is mine.

  • I am new to AdlandPro but so many have made me feel welcome so quickly. One of them was Branka. Even though we only “chatted” a bit the past couple weeks, she was the type of woman who made you feel like you were friends for a very long time. I cannot begin to imagine how deeply her long-time friends at AdlandPro must feel. My heart goes out to you all and I know you will grieve but you will grow from this experience and your lives will have been enriched from your relationship with your dear friend, Branka.

    Thank you Bogdan. Your comments, along with all the others, have made me proud to be a member of this incredible community. I, too, will promote AdlandPro as very best social networking/classified/blogging site there is – hands down!

    • Hi Carol, Branka was part of Adlandpro family for many years. She was loved by most and respected by many for her wisdom, and selfless assistance for anyone who needed it. She will be missed for a long time.

  • Thanks Bogdan, so well said about Branka. I thought it was bad losing Jill , but now another great friend. It is funny how you can love someone so much and have never even touched their hand, but they have touched your heart in a way that can never be explained. Maybe this should be called love network instead of social. I feel like I need to be close to everyone now, who knows what will happen tomorrow. But wait, we do have Nesara coming, that will take care of it. I do hope it is soon.

  • Hi Hafiz, Branka would like to see this community grow and stay at the same time as close as family. This family atmosphere is something which makes this community different in many ways.

    • I feel it Bogdan. Though I am not old in this site but in this short time I have loved this site, loved members of this site. Behind these, Branka’s influence is remarkable.

  • I am so deeply saddened about the loss of our friend Branka. She was a Great Inspiration to me and so many and will always be in our hearts. My thoughts and prayers going out to her family and to all.
