My blog is called K E Garland. I host an inspirational blog that includes quotes, stories, and photos. Initially, I began my blog to sell my first book called, Kwoted ; however, it grew more to include personal essays and stories, and eventually, photos (taken by me). No matter what, each post is intended to inspire people to think differently about everyday occurrences.
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.
Murder in Common blog (MiC)) is about crime fiction books and their authors. Mainly, it features debut and mid-list writers, with the occasional personal post. MiC also includes links to my published Flash Fiction.
The blog started as a project for a University of Toronto social media program. My classmates were supportive of the idea and as I love crime fiction, it was a natural pairing. Since then, I’ve joined Sisters in Crime, SinC Toronto, and was a panelist at Bouchercon – Toronto. All in all it’s been very rewarding.
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.
Infinite Stairwell. Life is a constant thought process.
Well, essentially I wanted my blog to represent a number of things:
1.Be a conduit for debates on contemporary issues. 2.A means of connecting with fellow creatives 3.A library of all my shorts stories, film reviews and think pieces etc.
4.Finally, and most importantly, a form of self-expression. My mind is constantly overflowing with thoughts and ideas, and I felt that creating a blog was the best way of getting them all out before I exploded.
My blog is a creative writing blog that gears towards poetry and prose. I also use my platform to share blogging tips, how to gain readership, advice on writing, and other creative activities to engage with my readers. Originally, I was inspired to start my blog because I wanted a place to put all my content that I had previously kept private. It was meant more for myself, and I sincerely thought that no one wanted to hear my stories anyway. In my first six months, I gained 2,000 followers—and at that point, I knew that this was really something special. Building this blog meant sharing my thoughts with other WordPress readers, and hoping I could connect with them. I think my reach has suggested that I really have made that connection, and I hope to continue to nurture it!
My blog Manja Mexi Movie is already my third. I started out four years ago without any plan or many expectations. It was obvious that I was getting a bit lonesome in the middle of rural Tuscany with amore who works long hours and the dog whom we call bestia.
The last straw to do something like starting a blog came when I got upset because my family and friends back home in Slovenia, to whom I kept sending photos from around here, didn’t respond to my mails at all or rarely. Obviously I needed a larger audience if I was to get any feedback.
I simply started to write and post photos, and looking back now I cannot believe how much personal information I shared willingly. Sometimes it makes me cringe but not enough to delete anything. I leave both my previous blogs as they were, for anybody who might find them as well as for me to look back and reminisce.
When the first blog was full, I simply started another and then another. The accent is on photography with more or less entertaining or merely informative captions, but sometimes I also burst out writing – always non-fiction, I cannot invent – most recently even poetry. Sometimes I translate poetry or songs, since this is my profession. Sometimes I post quotations.
My posts can be about present goings-on or a past trip to any of the little towns of Tuscany, to Rome or Slovenia where I return twice a year. These are my playgrounds.
Oh, and every four months or so I post flash film reviews. There is Movie in my blog name after all. And I’ve almost forgot: on Thursdays I and about 40 other enthusiasts worldwide post photos of doors. Welcome to join us or just come and have a look if you like doors, and who doesn’t.
Everybody welcome, especially those who like their lives a bit quirky, a bit out of the way and fully unapologetic. And who don’t do it for the money.
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….
Hello. My name is Amaan Khan, and this is my portfolio website. Welcome to my humble little corner of the blogosphere. Herein you will find short (and maybe long) pieces of fiction, thoughtful ramblings from yours truly, and who knows what else when inspiration strikes. Currently, I am preparing to publish chapters of my upcoming novel, one post at a time.
What inspired me to start my blog was the insatiable passion for reading, writing, and storytelling. I find that when all else in life fails, I keep coming back to them. They never let down, they never stop helping, healing. They are my true calling, and I believe my blog is the way I express my undying love and gratitude for them.
If you like what you find, please do follow the blog. There are weekly updates without fail, a new post every Thursday. Thank you for reading and stopping by! Have a great and healthy day!
Nicholas C. Rossis blogs about all things books, with an emphasis on book marketing. It all started when he published his first book. As all authors, he was hoping for the world to swiftly recognize the brilliance of his work. That first month, he sold eight copies, all to friends and relatives. The next one, none. He then tried some inspired book marketing, including posting on Facebook a rather pensive picture of him with a piece of paper saying, “please buy my book. It’s only $2.99.” Although that particular post got over 1,000 likes, it generated not a single sale. Coming from an Internet marketing background, Nicholas then realized he had to get serious with book marketing. Four years and fifteen books later, he has sold enough books to buy a jet, which he keeps in the top drawer of his desk. He shares every new trick he learns on his blog, believing you need to help a hundred people find success before you deserve your own. As he loves books and all things pertaining to them, he also blogs on a number of related topics, like writing tips, news from the world of publishing, and free stories.
