The words of dumb blog

My blog basically deals with fictional and non-fictional micro tales. 
Nowadays everyone is too busy to read some long stories by any unknown teenage writer so I try to keep my stories short and cryptic. 

I have also planned to post some free verse poems and haikus
My stories always have a hidden remark embarked in their roots.
I have a long story to tell. There is a great reason that inspired me to write. 

I started this blog and used to write a story that inspired me to start writing but it didn’t get a good response so I abandoned that idea and deleted all those posts and started writing these short stories. 

Though I still have the affinity to start writing that story again on my blog  when  attain a good number of followers.

Roshni Ramanan blog

Roshni Ramanan blog 

I started this blog as a birthday gift to myself. I was inspired to blog, only to fight the fear of committing to publishing all that I write.

I started out, with an intent to capture the unsaid and the abstract. It was key for me to become a versatile writer and branch out to incorporate a potluck mix of themes, genres and approaches to my posts.

After a couple of years, I can fairly say that I’ve accomplished the goals that I envisioned at the outset. Yet, fighting my lack of willingness to post what I pen is certainly a work in progress.

Today, my blog largely encases different styles of poetry but I’ve also dabbled in terribly tiny tales, listicles and prose pieces. Thank you for reading my story.

Is about motherhood and what lies beyond. The slightly longer backstory is that motherhood, for me, opened up an entire new level of existence. I have been plagued by existential angst for most of my twenties and early thirties, and growing past that demanded I face some of my deepest fears. It required that I look both inside and outside, and as I shed my previous assumptions about reality I started to rebuild a new foundation.

Motherhood, with its raw honesty, ethereal love and deeper connection to life around me was not only the frightening initiator but also the anchor that led me through it. In an odd way, I wouldn’t want to be my existential struggle, since life today is infused with much more meaning. I find myself having honest discussions about the deeper meaning of it all with old as well as new friends that are living the motherhood experience with me, but – true to the nature of motherhood – we rarely have time to finish them properly. That’s what this blog does.

I was one of those children to convincingly state I’m going to be a writer, who wrote stories everywhere on everything, until real life silenced that voice and practical choices overshadowed it altogether. However, if there is anything that life has taught me, it’s that we gravitate towards our passions in one way or another. We move towards that which lights us up and fires our engines, and if we choose to live in the shadows, we slowly kill that which we call our spirit. Writing makes up a small part of my day job, which I love, but I have been itching to arrange and write my own thoughts in my own words for several years. Editing blogs and writing copy for work only made me more convinced that I need to start writing of my own pen, or I’ll channel all that creative energy into something far less productive.

In short, I write because I want to share the honest, raw experience of being a mother. I write to counteract all the selfies, the blissful-holiday-picture, the rosy new-baby-pictures flooding our social media feeds. I write because those pictures do not reflect the true experience, at least not for me. Motherhood is the most joyous of heights, an entirely different level of existence, but it is also bottomless fear; fear of when my own life will end, fear of losing my child, fear of failure. If it resonates with someone, somewhere, it’s enough to keep me going.

 What lead you to start blogging?

It might be funny to say this, but joblessness made me start blogging about 7 years ago. Since I was young, I liked writing, but didn’t have any direction, or know what to do, or where to start from. However, the internet changed my life after I acquired my bachelor’s and master’s degrees, but didn’t have any job.

During that time, I always browsed the internet for the fun of it, till one day when a strong thought compelled me to type these words on Google: “how to make money by writing”. Every blogging-related experience I’ve had since that day has made me happy to have Google-searched that popular long-tail keyword, and follow up instructions with consistent action, persistence and patience.

 Has your motivation changed since starting?

Generally, it hasn’t. There have been ups and downs on my personal blogging platforms whenever I do freelance writing jobs, but my motivation for both self blogging and freelance blogging has always been quite high, even when I do both at the same time.

What has the experience been like?

Challenging but rewarding ($$$); interesting, self-satisfying and entertaining. I earned my first $10 from a website I blogged on in January, 2012. Since then, I’ve written—and even edited—for quite a number of websites and clients. I got a regular job in May, 2012, and in less than 2 years, while I was doing the job, I started earning at least $1000 per month  from online freelance writing; at certain times it was much higher than that.

It’s exciting to earn that amount of money (which you might say is little) while living in a poverty-stricken and corrupt nation. Convert $1000 to Naira, and you won’t get anything less than 320,000 Naira. No Ph.D holder (and probably professor) in my country earns that amount of money as salary from the government or any university/academic institution.

 Have you learnt anything?

I’ve learnt a lot: more grammar, more punctuation, and more spelling; I’m still learning. Also, I’ve learnt how to work with time, be more positive, always expectant, organized, patient, and use good criticism to develop myself more.

Has your writing style changed?

My initial writing style has changed a bit because the rules and diversity on the internet have compelled me to change it. I’ve observed that there is a way the internet works, and most people are adapting their raw talents to it in order to move in harmony with it and succeed to the greatest extent possible.

If what you’ve known from the onset isn’t in line with the internet, then you may have to change and adapt to its tune (one example is SEO) in order to succeed on its platform.

Are you planning to write a novel or are you already published?

I’m planning to write books after I get a domain, publish a lot on articles on it, and start earning a good amount of money from it. Earnings from my site would make it easier for me to give up freelance blogging for clients, and concentrate on my own business.

What advice would you give to a new blogger?

 It all depends on what the new blogger wants to achieve in blogging. It’s unlikely we’ll have the same goals.

Does the new blogger want to blog consistently or inconsistently?

Does the new blogger want to blog for freelance purposes (clients), or for themselves?

Whatever the new blogger wants to do, he/she must have passion, be dedicated and disciplined as he/she “works within their own pace”. Remember: “work within your own pace”; don’t try to mimic other people’s work ethics.

However, I want to advice: if anyone wants to be a great blogger, then they must take the bull by the horn:

  • be hard-working
  • be consistent in writing/posting valuable content
  • criticize your work, always learn from good criticism, and be positive
  • reject bad criticism and negativity
  • always update your knowledge of words/use of grammar (there’s always something to learn)
  • always interact with your fellow bloggers on their blogs, especially if their blogs are related to your areas of  interest
  • be patient
  • etc.

Please share this article for the benefit of those whom you feel could be motivated by it.

I was someone who started writing at the age of 10 probably.. Nothing much; but all what I felt like to put in words. And it’s been just 5 months that I started blogging.. And what made me start a blog is that I wanted a home or nest where all my poems and thoughts can live together happily and they will be able to enjoy the writings of more wonderful people..

The nerdy lion blog

Lion
The nerdy lion blog 

The Nerdy Lion blog was created to foster change, it doesn’t necessarily have a singular purpose like other blogs as mine tackles anxiety, writing, blogging and a plethora of other topics. My blog is about shattering the status quo and breaking down stereotypes and other pre-existing paradigms in society.

The Nerdy Lion is a symbol of that, because a Lion is viewed as courageous and the king of his/her domain. Meanwhile, a nerd is the antithesis to that, socially awkward and shunned. I believe anyone can be a Lion, regardless of how you look or how society pegs you and there is something powerful in that realization. I want people who read my blog to find their inner Lion and become the best version of themselves. And rule the jungle while they are at it.

 As with most, I am a writer on the brink of becoming the next big thing (funny joke right?) I started this blog because, I love writing. It is my one true passion and this blog allows me to fulfill that fire burning inside. Blogging was also a way to validate my writing and help me to establish that I was a competent writer in the first place. There is also the small potential that maybe someone who can get my books published will stumble onto my website and make all of my dreams come true. So, there’s that. Aside from me, I was inspired to create my blog, because I wanted to help people.

I have had many tragedies in my life that I have had to endure and successfully conquered. Because of that, I felt as though I should help others with their problems,  even if it is through the awkward lenses of my life. You never know who you could potentially help or touch through the simple act of writing words. So, I do it the best I can the nerdiest way possible.

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….

I’ve always wanted to write, but told myself I was too busy. Really though, I was afraid to share my stories publicly.

In 2013, at the Massachusetts Conference for Women, I confronted that fear. I came home determined to write two blog post per week for 52 weeks. My hope was that by finding my courage to write I’d find my voice and follow what had been my lifelong dream.

Now, five years later, several of my short stories have been published, and I’m revising my first novel. Perhaps someday that will be published too!

Here is my post about how I battled back my fears with this post about finding the Courage to WriteRead here the whole story !

Objects and the distance between them blog

Objects, and the Distance Between Them Blog

Objects, and the Distance Between Them Blog 

I write daily poetry and other creative writing, speaking to whatever is currently occurring in my life or happens to be in the forefront of my mind. This ends up encompassing a wide range of topics but I primarily write about relationships, love, mental health, time, light, and energy. I write as a creative outlet as well as to express myself and connect with others.

When I started my blog, most of my writing dealt with an ongoing divorce and my personal mental health struggles. It has since evolved, and though these topics still surface from time to time, they are no longer central.

I have also worked with several relationships defined as muses. I had never really worked with a muse relationship before and neither had any of them – it was a new experience and brought about some very inspired writing. I have since, inevitably it seems, fallen deeply in love with one particular muse, Blackbird, whom a majority of my writing either is about or to.

I found myself in a place of great darkness at the beginning of 2018, and realized that I needed to speak or my words would swallow me alive. I began posting with no real goal, other than to share my story and release the built up writing. I began this journey with the (rather foolish) intent of remaining distant and anonymous, but have since come to love this community, finding new meaning in the relationships I have built and the perspectives I have gained. I am slowly working to open myself up, and feel I have gained a family of sorts in those I have come to love here. I am inspired every day by the stories and poetry others share, the experience I encounter in my life, and those who I share this journey with.
