Truly madly ordinary blog 

Truly Madly Ordinary Stories  from the heart.

My blog is about every day life adventure, most of all mine and it is supposed to show like the most Ordinary it can be extraordinary if you look at it with the right eyes. I started to blog because I always loved to write and I used to write but then I gave up for a while but now that I’m back I remembered how much I like it and how much it makes me feel good. Writing is therapeutic for me.

Educated Unemployed Indian Blog

20180324_143710
Educated Unemployed Indian blog 

The name of my blog is Educated Unemployed Indian and it is about situations that an educated unemployed (like myself) deals with in everyday life.

The blog is not exactly about unemployment, rather I would say, it’s about being unemployed.

Unemployment is a part of the life of an unemployed person, but it is only a single part. There are so many other aspects that form the personality of an unemployed person, much like any other person.

This blog talks about such aspects of my life (including unemployment) that a lot of people (regardless of employed or not) can easily relate to. Things such as-

  • Talking about situations such as being jobless or having a job with lots of dissatisfaction attached to it.

  • The blog is about a depressing issue but it’s also about staying positive and finding other people & experiences to relate to.

  • You can find a few great quotes for inspiration and motivation.

  • Interesting list articles and useful how to articles.

  • And so much more.

There are many inspirational stories on the internet about successful bloggers quitting their jobs to blog full time. But my blogging story is not such an inspirational one. I didn’t quit my job to blog because I had no job and that’s why I started to blog. I guess you could say, unemployment is my inspiration or my muse for starting this blog. My mind was full of anxiety about future and I needed a place to share my thoughts. I have always been passionate about writing & have contributed little bit here & there. But starting this blog is the direct result of the constant restlessness over my job situation. I just couldn’t keep my thoughts to myself anymore and once I began so many ideas like light bulbs lighted up inside my head. This was the biggest inspiration to take up blogging.You can read more about my blogging journey here-

About the Author –
My name is Binita and I’m a qualified teacher. I write a blog  where I express my opinions, experiences, concern and everything I possibly can think about unemployment and a few other things close to my heart and my life.

Existential Tableau blog

Existential Tableau blog

My blog is mainly set up to promote my short novel – Existential Tableau – which is a lateral thinker’s approach to life. I am a fan of mixing the practical with the arcane; hopefully, my short novel conveys these two qualities well. I also share my thoughts on a variety of topics – there are links to my articles for the Korea Times on my blog. I am passionate about English teaching, so I share my perspective with the world. Who knows, maybe someone’s life will be positively influenced?

My philosophical musings inspired me to set up the blog. I was searching for the best way to publish my short novel – Reddit, Facebook, Twitter.. there was always something missing. Until I stumbled across WordPress. It’s a great site. I am going to reach 100 pages at one point.

John Jr`s blog

John Jr`s blog – Dreams and Miscellaneous  

My blog is a dream journal and miscellaneous blog that focuses on me sharing my dreams every day, and sometimes posting about random things like: movies, television shows, music, videos, news, books, art, software, online services, memories, daydreams, poetry, quotes, products, and more.

Back in the early MySpace and Facebook (Fakebook) days I did not like some of the limitations that services like that had and I wanted a more flexible and open service that anyone could read and comment on even if they did not have an account because I wanted my family and friends et cetera to be able to follow parts of my life shared online and be able to communicate with me, and so I tried various online services until I ended up on Windows Live Spaces.

No one I knew seemed interested in my blog at all so I ended up deleting all of my posts and then my blog became a dream journal because I wanted to improve my dream recall again to the levels that I had back when I was a kid, dreams are an important part of my life and are one of the reasons that I am still alive today, dreams may often be fictional but they often contain some things from our real lives so this allowed me to still share something from my life without having to worry about sharing too much personal stuff since they are just dreams, and because I dream almost every night so that would give me something to blog about each day.

Eventually I started to occasionally add and delete miscellaneous posts to go along with my dream posts, and later I moved my blog from Windows Live Spaces to WordPress.com when Microsoft cancelled Windows Live Spaces.

Journey in my world blog

A Journey in My World Blog
My blog is about how to begin a journey of self-discovery. 
First of all, let me to introduce myself. I’m Dina Al-Mahdy; a freelance English editor, translator and writer at numerous publishing houses and online journals. I started writing and reading at a very young age, which helped me muse at the world through a lens steeped in mindfulness, adventure and tenderness. My greatest loves are art, books, literature, nature, writing, photography, translation, traveling and music. I’ve always been in a serious relationship with words, and have had a deep yearning to discover many of the answers that seem to have been hidden or forgotten in today’s world. 
Being a member the International Positive Psychology Association, I’ve come to know the power of words. Words are important. They can lift us up or break us down, and they can touch our hearts. Our lives are made up of words, and when those words aren’t spoken, they leave a terrible emptiness in their wake. Words are powerful. When we withhold them, we’re denying their power and disempowering those we leave in the wreckage of those unspoken words. Simply put, we free ourselves and each other when we find the courage to speak our truth and honor our own feelings. That’s exactly why I started blogging! 
In January 2018, I started my blog A Journey in My World, where I share my thoughts and hope to inspire as many people as possible through them. A Journey in My World is brimming with articles, poems and short stories in both English and Arabic, along with my photography, all of which are about energy healing, relationships, well-being, meditation, mindfulness and peacefulness, and how to bring their great benefits to our everyday life.
So I welcome everyone to have a wonderful reading and to enjoy the soulful photography, writing and music….

Becoming the muse blog

 

Becoming The Muse
Becoming the muse blog

My blog is Titled Becoming The Muse

Growing up I used to be fascinated conversations with my grandparents and my grandfather would tell stories of our ancestry on  a moonlit
sometimes they were outlandish tales of magic and folklore other times
simply recollections of the old days when history was made.
We don’t sit around fires anymore telling stories into the night and
we are slowly forgetting the beauty and magic in our past, my blog is
my journey into trying to capture the essence of where I am from and
the history happening around me while it is happening, and for the world to see Africa’s narrative from my perspective.
I am a storyteller in a digital world and these are my words.

Dancing to the words blog

Dancing to the words blog 

This dance is about wanting to live fearlessly, with vulnerability
To value and celebrate who I am.
I imagine that my life’s journey might touch or inspire others,
as I at times feel touched when finding myself reflected in someone else’s words.

To nurture confidence in myself.
To dance with courage, ‘cœur‘, ‘corazón‘: Strength and power of my heart.
Allowing myself to be vulnerable and risk touching my inner beauty and creativity.
To stretch beyond my self defeating beliefs and reach for what seems impossible.
To create and share images of my inner journey.

Dancing to the words,
To nurture and feed my soul.

Bird flight blog

Bird flight blog 

I had a few specific purposes in creating bird flight blog:

Serve, in many ways, as an aid to my bipolar disorder recovery – I wanted to discipline myself to write on a regular basis, preferably as many week days of the year as possible. So often with bipolar disorder, energy, motivation, and concentration are issues. To be able to fulfill an assigned responsibility with regularity is great preparation for getting back to a normal life. I also wanted to expand my thinking beyond my illness. Way too often, mental illness becomes too much of a daily focus. I had many interests and loves before my illness consumed me. It was time to revisit them, and explore new ones, too. Reading other peoples’ blogs has also been so enriching and educational for me. I follow bloggers who write nature poetry, travel or culinary-related pieces, social and political pieces, and much more. I also very much enjoy their camaraderie.

Explore my creative side, and dabble in new styles of writing – Prior to starting this blog, writing was not really a major passion of mine. Sure, I wrote plenty of papers and essays at school and university. Many of my past jobs required a lot of writing, too, especially my most recent one. But all of that writing was communications, sales and marketing-type writing. I was good at it, but it sure got boring after a while! I wanted to write stories, reflections, poetic pieces, and articles on completely different things. I’ve written portions of a potential memoir, researched topics of interest to me, had a little fun, reminisced, and looked hard and deep at who I was, am now, and who I’d like to be in the future. Never before had I expressed such passion, emotion, and love in writing.

Share my bipolar disorder experience with others and help to fight stigma – I’ve spent plenty of time at in-person and online bipolar forums, supporting others and receiving wonderful support. I still do, but there are many people out there that are unfamiliar with or have skewed understanding of bipolar disorder, anxiety, and other mental health issues. I have readers of my blog without mental health issues. That makes me so happy! I also appreciate my readers who have shared their stories and comments.

Halfway through last year, I set a goal of publishing at least 200 posts. I’m happy to say that I exceeded 230 in 12 months! That’s enough writing to fill a book, and is the equivalent of almost one post per work day. I can’t believe it! Of these posts, about 50% include some reference to mental health, but the rest are about other topics completely. Looking back at my very first post The very beginning… I achieved what I set out to do. I am tickled pink!

I am looking forward to reading and writing posts throughout 2018. I’m not entirely sure what direction(s) I’ll take, but I think that’s OK. As time passes, this will be clearer to me.

Thank you all so much!

Under 1000 Skies blog

Under 1000 Skies Blog

ABOUT
Under 1000 Skies Blog
Our blog under1000skies is about connecting homeless creatives to each other and to the world. We showcase daily M-F photos, artwork and/or poetry on the website, social media and in our daily email. We also have gallery shows about twice a year. About once a month, we interview and honor those who serve homeless creatives (“Spotlight Saturday”). Some statistics claim that over 90 percent of us are only 2 paychecks away from being homeless. We believe there is no “us” and “them;” only “us.” Connection keeps us strong. 

ORIGIN
This blog began on November 11, 2014 on my personal blog, Niki Flow after a conversation on Twitter with author Laurence O’Brien.
Niki Flow- It begins with me.
O’Brien shared an article by Christopher Taylor called “Social Cleansing of the Homeless.” This term “Social cleansing” was an unfamiliar one, and the article was horrifying. When I responded his tweet, O’Brien invited me to do something about it. I’m an agoraphobic with panic disorder. The irony of my situation was not lost on me, but I wanted to help. I was homeless for a short time. After two days, the pain levels from living and sleeping outside were ridiculous — and I was a teenager at the time. So this has always been something close to my heart. Some of my friends in cities around the country agreed to accept the artist packs my family and I put together to distribute in their area. Each pack includes a disposable camera, a warm scarf (for winter; baseball cap in summer) waterproof notebook, pens, lip balm, gum and a waterproof carry pouch. I have learned that our connection to each other is critical to healing our lives and to finding a way back. I believe creativity is where we meet the best, most unfiltered parts of ourselves which we rarely show the world in our daily lives. When we play and create together, we connect deeply and really *see* each other. That was my dream. What grew from that has been connection to some of the most beautiful people I have ever met.

Cheynoea`s thoughts blog

 

My blog is called Cheynoea’s Thoughts. This name came from my Native American heritage. I was given this name as my adult native name by one of my elders. It is more like just a nickname because it is not on any of my legal documents. It means White Dove. A dove stands for peace and I am a peacemaker above all else.

My blog does not follow any one topic of conversation. I write what is in my heart and in my thoughts on any given day. This can range from non-fiction, self-help or self-improvement, thoughts about what is going on in the world, true-life stories, writer’s challenges, poetry, music, and even fiction or fantasy.

I think this recent post about my writing journey will explain most of why I write. It is in my blood. In my soul. It is as much a part of me as my limbs, hair, eyes, and ears.

My Writing Journey

I started my blog in 2015. I posted here and there but never really maintained it like I do now. I struggled to obtain followers and became discouraged. I knew and still know very little about blogging. What I do know is that I have a strong desire to share my life story, thoughts, and opinions in a way that will inspire and encourage others to fight through their struggles. I wish to leave the world a better place for our youth. If my writing can somehow do that, I have succeeded.

 

Character is Moral Integrity.

It goes hand in hand with your personal happiness!

If you have poor character, and treat others distastefully,

You will surely be unhappy in life.

If you have a good character, and treat others well,

God will provide happiness in your heart.

LOVE is the most precious Gift you can give to yourself and others.
