Remember what made you smile – Before Sundown Blog 

After years working in healthcare, I retired as a nurse practitioner to be a full time writer, co-author, and blogger. From the blog’s beginning in 2014, Before Sundown has been honored with awards, and blog tours. I’m ever grateful, and appreciative of dedicated worldwide followers who like, comment, share and tweet posts.

I started the blog to connect with other bloggers, and in a way to learn more about writing. I also wanted to support other bloggers, friends and family by writing blog posts about them, their books, interests, professions and travels.

The collections of sunsets/sunrises on the Welcome page came from bloggers all over the world. I wanted visitors to remember what made you smile Before SundownWhat better way then to offer breathtaking sunsets or sunrises? A monthly featured sunset continues.

Book excerpts can be found as permanent pages on the blog’s menu section. I’m writing Sunset Inna fiction book based on real events and people, and made up events and people. My favorite made up person is Eric Herrmann, a Jewish medical doctor, who is the main character Elizabeth’s “beau.” He’s the biggest help in Elizabeth’s search to uncover her famous real grandfather’s secret life in Germany, the theme of the book. Just so you know, Elizabeth is the real me. With all the grandfather research and historical parts, the story just needed a sparked up nurse/doctor romance.

Fun Facts About Me

I’m old as dirt, born in the late 1930s, and plan to live beyond the 100-year mark.

I love whimsy and humor, something I try to interject into blog posts and writing.  

I modeled for an Illustrator Photographer as a teenager, and was featured on east coast billboards; Give Life a Lift in West Palm Beach – Tropical Florida’s First Resort. I had jet-black hair and violet eyes, just like Elizabeth Taylor.

I published poetry years ago, and that led me to write “free rein for the brain” fiction.  

I attended the same university as my sons, and at the same time. I also knew their girlfriends there (now wives). I was an honorary Frat Mom, and a designated driver.

I lived in Italy, Greece and Japan (5 years in each country). The highlight, traveling and skiing the Matterhorn (Italian Alps), and ski slopes in France, Austria and Switzerland.

I was a tech challenged blogger at the beginning in 2014, and I “learned by fire” how to put the WordPress site together and keep it “blazing” with published posts, and The Sunrise and Sunset Photo Gallery

John Jr`s blog – Dreams and Miscellaneous  

My blog is a dream journal and miscellaneous blog that focuses on me sharing my dreams every day, and sometimes posting about random things like: movies, television shows, music, videos, news, books, art, software, online services, memories, daydreams, poetry, quotes, products, and more.

Back in the early MySpace and Facebook (Fakebook) days I did not like some of the limitations that services like that had and I wanted a more flexible and open service that anyone could read and comment on even if they did not have an account because I wanted my family and friends et cetera to be able to follow parts of my life shared online and be able to communicate with me, and so I tried various online services until I ended up on Windows Live Spaces.

No one I knew seemed interested in my blog at all so I ended up deleting all of my posts and then my blog became a dream journal because I wanted to improve my dream recall again to the levels that I had back when I was a kid, dreams are an important part of my life and are one of the reasons that I am still alive today, dreams may often be fictional but they often contain some things from our real lives so this allowed me to still share something from my life without having to worry about sharing too much personal stuff since they are just dreams, and because I dream almost every night so that would give me something to blog about each day.

Eventually I started to occasionally add and delete miscellaneous posts to go along with my dream posts, and later I moved my blog from Windows Live Spaces to WordPress.com when Microsoft cancelled Windows Live Spaces.

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….

Silver Screenings blog 

I believe classic film is good for you, like expensive chocolate or a day at the spa. I write about old movies – some of ’em are classics, and some definitely are not.
I have a bad habit of commenting on films as I’m watching them.

My loved ones finally said, “You should blog about your astute observations instead of telling us.” However, they used a more colorful phrase than “astute observations”… and I’ve been blogging ever since.

This is Amaan Khan blog

ThisIsAmaanKhan is the name of my blog.

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 Rossis blog

Nicholas Rossis blog

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.

Becoming the muse blog

 

Becoming The Muse
Becoming the muse blog

My blog is Titled Becoming The Muse

Growing up I used to be fascinated conversations with my grandparents and my grandfather would tell stories of our ancestry on  a moonlit
sometimes they were outlandish tales of magic and folklore other times
simply recollections of the old days when history was made.
We don’t sit around fires anymore telling stories into the night and
we are slowly forgetting the beauty and magic in our past, my blog is
my journey into trying to capture the essence of where I am from and
the history happening around me while it is happening, and for the world to see Africa’s narrative from my perspective.
I am a storyteller in a digital world and these are my words.

Dancing to the words blog

Dancing to the words blog 

This dance is about wanting to live fearlessly, with vulnerability
To value and celebrate who I am.
I imagine that my life’s journey might touch or inspire others,
as I at times feel touched when finding myself reflected in someone else’s words.

To nurture confidence in myself.
To dance with courage, ‘cœur‘, ‘corazón‘: Strength and power of my heart.
Allowing myself to be vulnerable and risk touching my inner beauty and creativity.
To stretch beyond my self defeating beliefs and reach for what seems impossible.
To create and share images of my inner journey.

Dancing to the words,
To nurture and feed my soul.

Bird flight blog

Bird flight blog 

I had a few specific purposes in creating bird flight blog:

Serve, in many ways, as an aid to my bipolar disorder recovery – I wanted to discipline myself to write on a regular basis, preferably as many week days of the year as possible. So often with bipolar disorder, energy, motivation, and concentration are issues. To be able to fulfill an assigned responsibility with regularity is great preparation for getting back to a normal life. I also wanted to expand my thinking beyond my illness. Way too often, mental illness becomes too much of a daily focus. I had many interests and loves before my illness consumed me. It was time to revisit them, and explore new ones, too. Reading other peoples’ blogs has also been so enriching and educational for me. I follow bloggers who write nature poetry, travel or culinary-related pieces, social and political pieces, and much more. I also very much enjoy their camaraderie.

Explore my creative side, and dabble in new styles of writing – Prior to starting this blog, writing was not really a major passion of mine. Sure, I wrote plenty of papers and essays at school and university. Many of my past jobs required a lot of writing, too, especially my most recent one. But all of that writing was communications, sales and marketing-type writing. I was good at it, but it sure got boring after a while! I wanted to write stories, reflections, poetic pieces, and articles on completely different things. I’ve written portions of a potential memoir, researched topics of interest to me, had a little fun, reminisced, and looked hard and deep at who I was, am now, and who I’d like to be in the future. Never before had I expressed such passion, emotion, and love in writing.

Share my bipolar disorder experience with others and help to fight stigma – I’ve spent plenty of time at in-person and online bipolar forums, supporting others and receiving wonderful support. I still do, but there are many people out there that are unfamiliar with or have skewed understanding of bipolar disorder, anxiety, and other mental health issues. I have readers of my blog without mental health issues. That makes me so happy! I also appreciate my readers who have shared their stories and comments.

Halfway through last year, I set a goal of publishing at least 200 posts. I’m happy to say that I exceeded 230 in 12 months! That’s enough writing to fill a book, and is the equivalent of almost one post per work day. I can’t believe it! Of these posts, about 50% include some reference to mental health, but the rest are about other topics completely. Looking back at my very first post The very beginning… I achieved what I set out to do. I am tickled pink!

I am looking forward to reading and writing posts throughout 2018. I’m not entirely sure what direction(s) I’ll take, but I think that’s OK. As time passes, this will be clearer to me.

Thank you all so much!
