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.

Written In Geek Blog

The key to my site, is to give people a chance to take a break in their day. I try to keep my posts at a reasonable length, and the content can vary between a poem that I wrote, to NASA articles.

My blog is about things that interest me, focusing on writing, geek culture, astronomy and once in a while, something on parenting. I’ve made a lot of changes since I began in April 2016, deciding on what I wanted to cover, how often I wanted to post, and whether to have a logo or not. I scrapped my logo a little while ago, and only post on Wednesdays and Fridays now.

I’m what you would call an introverted extrovert. While I love to meet new people, I’m generally shy. I began my site to help build my confidence, and to also get back to writing, something that I had stopped doing a long time ago. In this “journey of self-discovery”, I’ve made new friends, have become more confident in myself, and returned to writing. While the writing began with NaNoWriMo, and the goal was to write a novel, I’ve found that poetry is more my thing. Blogging has given me the chance to share my work, as well as getting the “job” of writing dark poetry for a horror site (http://www.theboldmom.com/). I’m a “mature” Library Tech student and now work at a rural library, so, between that, this site, and a fantastic family, I guess that I can say that I’m living my dream life!
