Seeking my utopia blog 

Is about breaking free from the herd – whether it is to attain free financial literacy to be financially independent or to overcome life’s challenges and succeed, I write my heart out in hopes of helping someone out there.

Life is a combination of various hills and valleys, and I strive to help others in overcoming every hurdle along the way.

I began writing this blog merely to explore my love for writing and to vocalize my thoughts, not knowing it would offer a profound meaning to the proverb Pen is mightier than the Sword. I write about my personal experiences, simply in hopes of reaching out and connecting with anybody who could benefit from it.

We are all searching for a unique balance in our lives — a balance between our emotional, physical and financial well being and I welcome everyone to join me on this journey to Seeking a Utopia.

To be free from the herd, we must stop thinking and acting like the herd !

” No harm’s done to history by making it something someone would want to read. ”

-David McCullough

The History Honey is a history, literature and travel blog that explores all things vintage, historical, mythical, or travel related in nature. I personally have a slight obsession with knowledge and learning, and have always been fascinated with the history of our world.

I see the things that have happened in the past as the building blocks of our future and believe that it is important to preserve that legacy. I have also always had a love for writing as a way to express myself. An introvert by nature, writing always came more naturally to me than speaking when it came to all of the thoughts bouncing around in my head.

I started this blog as way to share my knowledge and passion with others and start as new career path in my life. I also want to service those out there in need of assistance with their own history or travel based businesses, such as museums, magazine articles, or research projects. So if any of this sounds like it is up your alley, I would love to have you join me on my journey of self- discovery and learning, as I am going to some pretty cool places to learn some amazing things. 😉

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.

On mama`s mind blog

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.

New Lune blog 

New Lune is a beauty & lifestyle blog written in English and French. I feature a variety of posts ranging from blogging tips to products reviews, study tips to home décor ideas in order to give inspiration and tips to others.

One of the things that inspired me to create a blog was the fact that I loved reading blogs and I was interested in the blogging world in terms of blog design, social media, etc.

Also, I wanted to have a platform to share my hobbies and passion, to raise awareness on issues that are close to my heart and to speak with other people who share the same passion as me.

Pointless Overthinking blog

My blog is about our world from a mindset point of view. The way we see the world is deciding the type of world we’re living in. We can change that if we want to even though it requires lots of hard work, but I believe it is worth it because we matter! Always!

I was in a place I didn’t know what to do with my life. I had some sort of a fog over my mind and because of this I couldn’t clearly see where I’m heading to.

I started to read more about mindset and about how it is influencing our lives and I started to write about what was going on in my head and also about what I found in my readings. This brought some clarity for me and I want to share all of these with other people because

I don’t want for people to have the fog I had over my mind and I also want for people to realize that it’s more important what’s within ourselves compared to what’s outside.

Extra mile blog

The Extra Mile blog 

My blog has a little bit of everything in it… but most importantly it`s got a lot of ‘love’ put into every one of its posts. There’s a little bit of me in every post I write. 

Inspiration is a funny thing, you could look at a bird and be inspired or simply sit on a chair, listen to a speaker and be inspired. None of that happened to me though. 

I am very rarely inspired by people or things. Sometimes, it is just that spot decision I make to do/start something and I’ve got to do it. The journey of the creation of this blog was something like that. And of course I did have many many thoughts that made more sense to start writing them down, then just let them get away. I couldn’t have been more pleased by the decision of starting a blog and for the many choices I’ve made in life, this one ranks right up there, in my top 3.

The Bookworm Drinketh blog

The BookWorm Drinketh blog  is about sharing my love of reading with others! 

This was quite the frightening endeavor for me as, even though I am in my 30s, I had been strictly against social media of any sort. It was definitely a small fish in a VERY, VERY large pond sort of scenario when I first started out! Even now I can’t believe that people actually wanted to read what I was writing! I’ve actually figured out things like adding videos, and how to use a # (though my this was always just a pound symbol!). It’s definitely been a growing experience, and although I still put on my tin foil hat quite frequently, I feel that most of my readers and the blogs that I follow have come to find it endearing… I can only hope!

I decided that pairing my love of books with my love of alcohol, by finding specific drinks to pair with the book that I’m reading would be something fun to set me apart from the other Book Blogs out there… and give me an excuse to have a tipple now and again!! 

My blog has expanded from there to occasional celebrations of National Food and Drink Days, my Far Side Friday’s (where I share Gary Larson’s Far Side cartoons with everyone), and my Game On! Saturday’s where I review some strange and unusual (and every once in a while, triple A) Game titles, from tabletop and Card games, to Video Games!

My inspiration was my hope of getting into the world of Editing. I thought that this blog would call me to the attention of different Authors out there who could help me get my foot in the door. I didn’t realize how much fun I would have doing it! I’ve met so many wonderful people, and met some life long friends while blogging and I am always open to meeting other new and amazing people!

Motivation environment blog

Motivation environment blog 

 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.

Words and music blog

Words and Music blog 

When I started this blog I was just trying to share the contents of my lectures.

I am teaching a course called “Words & Music” at the University of the Third Age of my small Italian town, with the aim of letting people enjoy a little English in a cheerful way.

The blog was intended as a way to reach those who had been unable to attend the course: you know, we are still young, but only at heart!

Then I began to enjoy it … and here I am!
