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
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
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….
heyelsale is my creative playground where I expose my thoughts, insights and feelings. It is an authentic expression of what life means to me. My main topics revolve between self-growth, travelling and, certainly, food.
I love to write and take photos, so a blog was the perfect solution. Since high school, I accumulated many blogs from Tumblr, Blogspot to WordPress. It was always a way to be creative and to push me to be more healthier, to get out of my comfort zone, etc.
My blog is about a full-time student still making traveling possible. This blog is mostly me venturing, taking pictures, and then writing about my days abroad, travel tips, and-of course-local cuisines. I’ve seen a small part of the World, and am currently on an ongoing process to see the rest of it.
I started my blog to trace my footsteps, see where I’ve been and which destinations I’ve crossed my bucket list. However, along the journey, I have also discovered my love for writing and other amazing bloggers, which motivated me to keep posting!
