Dreaming reality blog

My name is Cheryl. I started my Dreaming Reality Blog on the suggestion of my oldest son while we were living in Costa Rica, as a means to share our experiences with family and friends back home. Being an avid photographer and writer, there was so much beauty and peace to be found there. It filled to the brim after I posted book chapters from my novel, Forever Never/Dawn of the Dream and from so many photos.
Blog also has a variety of posts, including philosophical ideas, a couple of chapters from sequel novel, and the occasional poem. I love participating in weekly prompts s I am able and have my own weekend #free48 series where I share photos from my weekend excursions.
Most of all, I love meeting so many people from diverse backgrounds and creative souls who, like me, often feel out of place in their day to days lives. We are out here! I would love to meet you and hear about your walk in this dream we call living.

Love and Light always….

Typewriter girl blog

Typewriter Girl Blog 

My blog is called Typewriter Girl.
When I was little, I had a typewriter and, having an active imagination, I would type stories of adventures and escape. I must have typed hundreds of stories. Many years later, and being older, I had a desire to capture what was happening in my life instead of just collecting photos in my mobile phone gallery, never to be looked at again. And so,  I returned to typing, this time on a laptop, to start my personal blog.
  My blog is about sharing little snippets of my life and about the things I love and which inspire me. From places I visit, to my beloved dog Boris, to the beauty in nature I see around me, I share my thoughts and photographs  on my blog and hope that in some small way they might inspire others too.

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.

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….

Photo Sociology Blog 

Greetings,

I’m Richard and my blog is Photo sociology

I study photography with the Open College of the Arts, and we are required to start a blog in order that we can evidence our progress and development throughout the course, and as a means of submitting our assignments.

But that’s not where my journey with photography began.

Two years ago, I was on the brink of suicide due to overwhelming anxiety and paranoia. I was unable to go outside and couldn’t cope with life. A friend was very firm that something needed to change, so I ordered a camera. Very slowly and tentatively I started to go outdoors with a camera. Five minutes was more than enough to start with, but over a period of months this increased. I felt a level of safety having a camera in front of my face, and also that photography became my mindfulness practice. It never took my paranoia or anxiety away, but it helped me to cope with it.

I have progress so far since then, and on a good day I can even go up to strangers and ask them if I can take their photo. Photography has become a passion for me and this ignited my desire to study.

Although my studies are predominant on my blog, I try and use my studies to explore mental health, and especially eating disorders, along with other sociological themes.

Creative writing, poetry and essay writing are important to me and can also be found on my blog, along with a gallery of photos that are not related to my studies.

You are welcome to join me on my journey.
