Brian Lageose blog

Brian Lageose blog 

Brian was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma on a cold January day in 1965.

Clearly, the odds were already against him.

But he persevered, slugging through this and that, and he quickly learned at a very young age that some people can achieve greatness with dedication and hard work, some people are destined to awe the world with their ineptness and lack of admirable qualities, and most people are quite happy to simply plod along in the middle, leading pleasant but mundane lives where they occasionally find a stash of misplaced quarters under a sofa cushion and everybody gets to go out for ice cream.

Brian was not impressed with any of these options. He looked up from his paperwork at the Life Goals Development Center, and studied the applicants around him. Everyone else was quickly selecting one of the three avenues, shoving their completed forms at one of the bored administrative people, and then rushing out the door, because “Charlie’s Angels” was on TV in a few minutes and you couldn’t really miss THAT.

In frustration, Brian turned over his application, intent on writing a scathing missive to Whoever Was In Charge that he really didn’t appreciate the skimpy menu of opportunities, and he noticed a fourth career path, hastily scribbled in by someone with vision: “Some people feel compelled to study the world and people around them, and then stay up all night writing down their thoughts on the matter.”

Brian smiled, checked the box, and added his signature with a flourish. And so it began.

My blog title is I refuse to give up. They say “what’s in the name?”……I say everything.

This blog started on my toughest days , I had no clue what it will be like , while writing I realized my love for poetry and I am writing almost everyday since. 
The purpose is to inspire and motivate the readers and also stay motivated.
I refuse to give up on hope …. I refuse to give up on myself ….come what may.

Blind Injustice Blog

Have you ever been called out for acting in unjust ways? If so, join the club—I’ve been called out on multiple occasions for acting in unjust ways too. 

My inspiration for Blind Injustice is that I want those unjust ways, in myself and in others, to be confronted before we commit those injustices. I do this by writing about some of the ways that we may be blind to and/or blindly commit injustices that range from sexism to ageism. 

I might not be able to deliver world peace, but I hope that my blog can at least make each of my readers a little more just.

Off to the World blog

Off to the World

My blog is about a full-time student still making traveling possible. This blog is mostly me venturing, taking pictures, and then writing about my days abroad, travel tips, and-of course-local cuisines. I’ve seen a small part of the World, and am currently on an ongoing process to see the rest of it.

I started my blog to trace my footsteps, see where I’ve been and which destinations I’ve crossed my bucket list. However, along the journey, I have also discovered my love for writing and other amazing bloggers, which motivated me to keep posting!

Grief to life blog

Grief to life blog 

Grief is a journey, an ever changing and painful process. It can isolate you and make you feel more lonely than one could ever imagine. That’s where this blog comes in. It’s my way of giving grief a voice and writing about what it’s like to be a young widow with two teenagers.
More importantly, it’s about hope and coming back to life!

Disletti Blog 

My blog is about keeping a balanced life in the midst of a chaotic world. We all experience some form of anxiety, depression, stress and panic attacks. They can be maintained and managed.
I wanted to share my stories, both positive and negative in hopes that people know they are not alone as I was. I want to be a sounding board, venting post etc to help others regain their strength.
I’m in the midst of opening an antique store to showcase my hobbies that I have done to help manage stress and anxiety.

From Private to Public Blog

From Private to Public Blog 

  From Private to Public

 My blog isn’t about one thing in particular. And to be honest, I’m not sure what it’s about, exactly.  What I can say—and this is rather selfish—is that my blog is to help me improve as a writer. My goal, whether it takes months or years, is to create a novel that lasts. I will not attempt to publish something that I feel is not my best work, at the time. I want to publish work I am proud of; work I feel is important; and work that brings enjoyment to anyone who reads. I do, at times, write on education, as I am a teacher. And some of my stories are geared towards children.

    Clients and readers of my work, have called my style, humorous, controversial, unique, clever, imaginative, fresh, classic in ways yet contemporary in others.

So, my blog is about connecting with writers, learning from them, receiving feedback, and using that feedback to grow every day.

It was the end of June, 2017, and I stumbled into my small apartment, exhausted yet relieved that school had ended and summer break would begin. Ah, summer break. One of the reasons I became an elementary educator—not the only reason, but a main one (I was in my early 20s, after all). But this summer was different: it was the first summer I would spend as a married individual. Normally, I would spend my summers reading, playing video games, going out—you know, being lazy. This particular summer, though, I had a much more important priority: to provide for my wife. I had no summer job, and no way of bringing in money to pay the necessary bills. Yes, exactly—not good!

Just a month before that summer began, my wife noticed a passion in me, that I did not see in myself. She saw in me, a love for reading, writing, and storytelling. What she did next, would change my life. She gave me a journal (one very special to her), and told me to pursue my dream. So, I did. And that same summer, I ended up ghostwriting for ten different clients, who all gave me incredible feedback, appreciated my writing style, and paid me very well. Thank—goodness!

I continued this trend, until my current pursuit of a Master’s degree took top priority. It was then, that both of my professors questioned why I don’t have a blog; and why I was not sharing my writing. They, along with my wife, encouraged me to begin this blog. It’s now been close to three weeks, and already, I am hooked (too hooked at times. Whoops!).

Written in Geek Blog 

Written In Geek Blog

The key to my site, is to give people a chance to take a break in their day. I try to keep my posts at a reasonable length, and the content can vary between a poem that I wrote, to NASA articles.

My blog is about things that interest me, focusing on writing, geek culture, astronomy and once in a while, something on parenting. I’ve made a lot of changes since I began in April 2016, deciding on what I wanted to cover, how often I wanted to post, and whether to have a logo or not. I scrapped my logo a little while ago, and only post on Wednesdays and Fridays now.

I’m what you would call an introverted extrovert. While I love to meet new people, I’m generally shy. I began my site to help build my confidence, and to also get back to writing, something that I had stopped doing a long time ago. In this “journey of self-discovery”, I’ve made new friends, have become more confident in myself, and returned to writing. While the writing began with NaNoWriMo, and the goal was to write a novel, I’ve found that poetry is more my thing. Blogging has given me the chance to share my work, as well as getting the “job” of writing dark poetry for a horror site (http://www.theboldmom.com/). I’m a “mature” Library Tech student and now work at a rural library, so, between that, this site, and a fantastic family, I guess that I can say that I’m living my dream life!

My Life, Written by Me
kayleyshelton.com

I have always found comfort in releasing my thoughts and experiences into the world. I started this blogging journey to share my struggles as a young mom, coping with anxiety, and finding healing in exercise and spirituality. I wanted to use my voice to share with the world that motherhood, life even, is imperfect and difficult, but there are healthy ways to find peace. It brings me joy and healing to share my story and it can also bring others to healing as well, the type that is found when you find someone who is in the thick of a struggle that sounds a lot like mine. 
I hope that in facing my fears, in raising my precious babies, and finding my ever-changing path to health that I will inspire others to do the same.
