Number 26 blog

The Number 26 blog 

The goal of the 26 is to capture the mundane. This blog is comprised of passages about passengers on the number 26 bus line. This is a fictional imaginary bus set in a very tangible world. The bus and the passengers that ride it exist nowhere, and yet, in a genuine sense, they live everywhere. They are us, and we are them, in so far as our own humanness connects us. This is the point of the blog, to capture what it means to be human.

I’ve always been inspired by the mundane, the simple, and the everyday heroes. So I wanted to create a blog that was built around celebrating the simple quotidian, the omnipresence, the ubiquitous (such ridiculous words) passengers on a bus. Although it’s become increasingly more fantastical and fictional as the stories have gone on. (now we have stuff like the number 26 steampunkish airship).

What the blog’s really about though are writers. I know what it’s like for a writer, particularly new ones, to be submitting their work to various places, and getting turned down without any feedback or constructive criticism. And it isn’t that the story is terrible per se, but that it just isn’t what they’re looking for- doesn’t fit their concept.

I liken this blog to a bathroom wall, covered in graffiti. People come and go and just sort of scribble their stories onto the walls. In this strange way, the content can always be moving, and the themes and styles always changing.

So, I love reading and editing peoples stories. And I always offer my most sincere commentary.  Thus far, the word counts of my comments, feedback, and edits have surpassed that of the actual stories themselves.

So the blog is still relatively new, and it’s still very small. And I hope it remains so, otherwise, as this is just a hobby, I wouldn’t have the time to give everyone the response they deserve when they post. I like the fact that the blog is something that doesn’t try to be found, but yet it still CAN BE found occasionally. It’s a tiny hole in the wall of the internet.

mental illness blog

Speaking bipolar blog 

My blog is primarily about living with chronic and mental illness, though I also share some posts about my blogging journey. I personally live with Bipolar Disorder and Familial Mediterranean Fever so many of my posts relate to living successfully with those conditions.

I have had about a dozen friends commit suicide and dozens more not get help because they were afraid to talk about mental illness. My hope by starting this blog was to hopefully help get more people talking about mental illness and seeking the help they need.

fearless quote
My blog is about blogging, lifestyle, and writing. I write posts that express me and who I am as a person, but also that can be beneficial to my readers as well. In short, I write about what I love and what makes me happy.  I have only a small space on the Internet, but I want to touch lives and talk about topics that mean a lot to me.
The thing that inspired me to start my blog would be simply the fact that I’ve always wanted a blog, but I never thought it was something I could do.
And then one hot summer day, I finally was spontaneous and logged onto WordPress and created a blog. It might’ve been the craziest thing I’d ever done, but I have never regretted it for a minute. I’ve never been one of those extremely outgoing people, but blogging sets a fire inside of me that can’t be put out.

My Blogging Journey

My blogging journey blog 

I started blogging 3 years ago, on 30th April, 2016. I had a lot of content that I had written, but no means to show it to an audience. Thus, I decided to start a blog of my own.

I started on Blogger, posted frequently, shared a lot, but never got any likes or comments. In January 2019, I decided to import to WordPress, and since then my blog is growing.

Write into Life blog 

“Write Into LifeRachel McAlpine on writing, blogging, and staying alive until we die”

I began this blog to document my personal “boot camp for the bonus years” in 2015. This eccentric boot camp triggered new ideas about life, blogging, and growing old, so I have carried on writing into life. 

Last year I carried out a detailed survey of older bloggers and published the results in a series of blog posts. (The results amazed me and have triggered a new project.)

Now I write short articles about blogging, and very easy, friendly poems about ageing (because I’m 79 and it’s getting weird), and cute photographs that show what certain cats are thinking. At times I write about other things as well. 

As a long-time professional writer, I care about the numerous ways that the act of writing brings health and joy and better thinking… not to the reader but to ourselves as writers. Writing has enriched my rather long life, and as a teacher and researcher I try to help others to access that same deep satisfaction and delight. Oh, and I do a lot of terrible drawings too.

Gehad`s journey blog

Gehad`s journey blog 

There is a phase in everyone’s life where anxiety pays us a visit. It is a heavy guest, but still the best guru. I have decided to write down my feelings and thoughts in order to get rid of these vibes and move forward.

I am a free spirit full speaking my mind without any fear nor judgments. Therefore, I have decided to set up my blog. Obviously, my mother tongue is not English, then this blog sounds a great thing to work on my writing skills.

I am preparing for IELTS, so wish me luck to excel this time. In the future, I would like to come back, read what I have written, and then laugh blissfully as my aims were not wishful thinking.

Moments blog

Moments blog 

My name is Marta Pombo Sallés. I come from Catalonia and I am a German and English teacher working in a high school near Barcelona. I have been teaching both languages since 1990. Both at work and in my free time I always feel the need to create things.

This blog is about what I do at certain MOMENTS of life, basically in my free time. I mainly write poems, sometimes a few short stories, and I post all this with photos I take. I have written a few literary reviews and have occasionally posted some of my dancing.

In 2015 two important things happened in my life. The first one was that I made friends with American artist-writer Mario Savioni,  whose blog I strongly recommend. Here is the link: Mario Savioni blog

Meeting Mario meant recovering things that I had neglected a bit in my life like my love for arts and literature. I started to read Mario’s poetry and short story books and ended up reviewing his 5 self-published books till now.

While I was in this process I had a compelling need to write. I showed Mario some of my humble poems and short stories and he was always very supportive. He even helped me reedit a few pieces. By that time, December of 2015, my father died. That was the second event that made me keep on creating whether it was dancing or writing. This formed part of my healing process after the loss of my father.

In 2016 I started my blog with the help of a friend who works in the field of computers. Then I noticed that what basically led me to start blogging was the self-healing effect and pleasure this whole process was having on me.

My main motivation has not changed since starting. As I said before, blogging for me is basically therapy and pleasure. I have crossed paths with many talented bloggers and this sharing has a karma effect of giving and taking, which I strongly believe is what life is about.

This blogging experience is highly rewarding in terms of feeling much better psychologically speaking, and also, being able to help others feel appreciated and valued for their great talents.

In sum, I have learnt a lot about other people’s lives, thoughts and feelings, about their excellent creations, mostly literary works.

Sagar Samy blog

Sagar Samy blog 

“In a country full of Instagrammers, I decided to be a Blogger.”

Hello, myself Sagar Samy – Media Blogger and Social Media Influencer from
Karachi, Pakistan. Being blogger and influencer, you need to be an all-rounder.
The journey of blogging started in 2015 when I thought to have such website
where I can share my views. So, I joined WordPress as a blogging platform for
beginners.
My first blog was about Fashion – Fashion Pakistan Week (FPW) – then I shifted
towards entertainment, I started writing reviews about dramas/films and begun
sharing highlights of the events. Once I get enough recognition as Lifestyle
Blogger, then I started writing about tech and travelogues as well.
I read many national and international blogs, but particularly for film critics, I
followed Shafiq Ul Hasan Siddiqui’s blog. As he does excellent reviews about
films. So, I couldn’t stop myself taking inspiration from him.

I have also contributed my content to Dunya Blogs and Trending in Pakistan amongst others. That’s how my blogging career officially kicked off. I have earned money from
blogging, but due to lack of consistency and time management it is hard to post a
blog regularly; but still, I try my best to post quality content whenever I get time.

Elizabeth Gauffreau blog 

In 2016, I had just finished final revisions on a novel that I thought 
might actually be publishable (unlike the other two I had previously 
attempted). When I researched the current publishing landscape to get up 
to speed on what it would take to get the novel published, I encountered 
the phrase “building author platform.” Again and again and again. There 
was no escaping it. I needed an author’s website.

“Elizabeth Gauffreau” includes the complete list of my previous publications in literary magazines, as well as links to stories and poems that are accessible 
online. The site also includes a blog, which, as it turns out, I greatly 
enjoy.

The blog gives me a venue for randomly spouting off about all 
things writing without having to accost strangers in the street-and 
people respond!
