Words and Music blog 

When I started this blog I was just trying to share the contents of my lectures. I am teaching a course called “Words & Music” at the University of the Third Age of my small Italian town, with the aim of letting people enjoy a little English in a cheerful way. The blog was intended as a way to reach those who had been unable to attend the course: you know, we are still young, but only at heart!
Then I began to enjoy it … and here I am!

Blogging with Bojana blog

Blogging with Bojana blog

LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF:  My name is Bojana and I’m running a blog called Bojana’s Coffee and Confessions to go.

I am a teacher, a writer, a workaholic, a perfectionist, a skeptic, a realist with dreams, an art lover, a travel freak, a tennis fan, a coffee junkie, a carnivore, an environmentalist, a political being, a good person, a bitch, a neurotic, a soul searcher, a careful daughter, a caring daughter, a missing sister, a part-time wife, a part-time friend, and a full-time mom. I am a citizen of the world (who happens to be the citizen of Serbia), once a permanent resident of Canada, now a German permanent residence permit holder, a legal alien in all three.

WHAT AM I DOING HERE? To answer this question, I have to go back a year and a half ago when my blogging adventure started. I remember I couldn’t sleep, being suddenly flooded with dozens of thoughts, a rush of emotions and an unstoppable urge to get out of bed, and start to write. Back then, I wasn’t even sure what about. Last time I had written something had been 20 years before, and I knew how liberating it had felt. As time went by, I stopped. I was constantly pressed for time since I began studying and then working and I simply forgot, not how to write but to write in the first place. 

Anyway, I decided to play it by ear. I believed it was a mental breakthrough, a sudden insight, an epiphany. On the other hand, I was aware of the fact those undefined perplexing thoughts which came rushing to my mind were also a result of inner turmoil, disturbance, confusion, sadness, rage, anxiety and restlessness I’d been feeling. My writing actually started as a self-healing attempt, a process of recovery, a journey I was determined to embark on in hopes of getting out of my mess. As a result, my early posts were designed as an attempt to get to the root of my obnoxious mood swings and stress. I would often refer to it as soul-searching, reconciliation and finding peace I had been longing for.

DID I LET THE GENIE OUT? I most definitely did and by doing so I found a whole lot more than I had bargained for. As my readership was growing, and I was discovering new interesting topics, my posts began to undergo a change. Besides, I made friends with some gorgeous people who helped me heal by, among other things, reaching out and asking me to open up. Consequently, I started writing about growing up amidst the crisis, war and challenging post-war years in Yugoslavia where I grew up, which has with time evolved into a series of bitter sweet posts I’m exceptionally proud of.

In the meantime, I started successfully writing engaging poetry and short stories. At the moment, I’m working on a number of posts with a fellow blogger I think the world of, namely a satire about the rise of nationalism and other bad isms worldwide. You can find the first installment on my site already. 

If you want to find out more, you’ll have to visit my blog. What you need to know for now is I can’t take bullshit and speaking straight from the shoulder, however painful and shocking, is something I’m rather good at. I have frequently been called a fierce and uncompromising writer who doesn’t want to look away and a force to be reckoned with. I love stream of consciousness, sarcasm, criticizing sentimentality and society, and using both formal and informal language in a single piece of writing. When I don’t bitch about injustice and exploitation, I’m still trying to figure out how to cope the best way I can.

The Sociological mail blog

We are The Sociological Mail, a consortium of writers who are dedicated to the dissemination of Sociological information (surprise, surprise) to all those willing to engage.

So, how did this blog come about?

A group of young people at Loughborough University thought it would be a good idea to create a blog so we could continue debating prior to our degree. We convinced a number of people to join us and before we knew it we had developed a platform with over 35 contributors from all walks of life. A virtual melting pot of different ages, sexes, and abilities, our diversity in articles is only one way to experience our ranges of interests.

Over time we figured we should have a mission. 
1) Disseminate Sociological information
2) Provide Sociological solutions to issues
3) Write articles which aid social cohesion

So come on over and see if we’re doing a good job, and don’t be scared to critique us. We hope to hear from you soon !

Pink Peeli blog

Pink Peeli blog 

I am a Doctor who loves writing and who is in love with words.. I enjoy each time I write something and it makes me feel myself. I just love to write everything which my heart pours out and it includes my imagination, dreams, feelings, hope, love, and lot more.. I was someone who started writing at the age of 10 probably.. Nothing much; but all what I felt like to put in words. And it’s been just 5 months that I started blogging.. And what made me start a blog is that I wanted a home or nest where all my poems and thoughts can live together happily and they will be able to enjoy the writings of more wonderful people.. When I started, I never knew how it would be.. But really speaking.. It’s been amazing💖. The support from my WordPress community is immense and I enjoy reading beautiful people here.. The likes and comments makes me so happy that people are there to enjoy the little things which I love..❤
Everyone who loves to read are warm welcome to my world of words💫

A Sagittarian seeker

A Sagittarian seeker  

I began blogging on Xanga, in 2008, whilst I was my wife’s primary caregiver. I needed a constructive outlet for all that I was feeling and thinking. I also needed to begin a network for the looming day when she would be gone and our son would be out of the house and on his own. Xanga folded, more or less, in 2011, the year Penny passed and son, Aram, entered the U.S. Navy.

I found that Word Press, first with a free blog site and then a paid site where I could have unlimited storage for my photos, was a fine place to park. Righteous Bruin became Sagittarian Seeker, about a year ago.

The nerdy lion blog

The Nerdy Lion blog was created to foster change, it doesn’t necessarily have a singular purpose like other blogs as mine tackles anxiety, writing, blogging and a plethora of other topics. My blog is about shattering the status quo and breaking down stereotypes and other pre-existing paradigms in society. The Nerdy Lion is a symbol of that, because a Lion is viewed as courageous and the king of his/her domain. Meanwhile, a nerd is the antithesis to that, socially awkward and shunned. I believe anyone can be a Lion, regardless of how you look or how society pegs you and there is something powerful in that realization. I want people who read my blog to find their inner Lion and become the best version of themselves. And rule the jungle while they are at it.

 As with most, I am a writer on the brink of becoming the next big thing (funny joke right?) I started this blog because, I love writing. It is my one true passion and this blog allows me to fulfill that fire burning inside. Blogging was also a way to validate my writing and help me to establish that I was a competent writer in the first place. There is also the small potential that maybe someone who can get my books published will stumble onto my website and make all of my dreams come true. So, there’s that. Aside from me, I was inspired to create my blog, because I wanted to help people. I have had many tragedies in my life that I have had to endure and successfully conquered. Because of that, I felt as though I should help others with their problems,  even if it is through the awkward lenses of my life. You never know who you could potentially help or touch through the simple act of writing words. So, I do it the best I can the nerdiest way possible.

The dust season blog

The Dust Season blog 

Put on the spot, I couldn’t for the life of me tell you what I blog about…except to say, whatever takes my fancy. I expound on what life throws me, what hairpin curves I finesse and what nosedives my plans take. 

It is a tale of victories and sorrows, wrapped in a suburban bow.

There might be cupcakes or dragons on any given day. And some days, both.

Or neither.

Which rhymes with EE-thor or Eye-thor, depending on my mood.

Some days it rains.

Other days, I’m out in the garden and can’t be bothered to show up.

Generally, silliness rules.

Mommy of 8 with cancer blog

Mommy of 8 with cancer blog 

My blog “What Define’s Me ? ” is a personal tale of my struggles and triumphs. Of a mom who has had her share of battles ranging from cervical cancer to being the victim of domestic violence. I started my blog three years ago in hopes to have a voice. Being a submissive wife for many years left me without one. I was unable to verbally stand up for myself. I made a promise to never reread or correct my thoughts. To never question whose feelings I may hurt but to simple get my own feelings out. To let myself know it was okay to speak up and to defend myself. I share of my new found love and how it has uplifted me in many ways! I share of our journey’s and adventures. I sometimes share of my cooking experiences as that is what I am skilled at.
