My blog Ruthie Mbuba is mostly a platform for me to share my life experiences and what I’ve learnt so far. And the other time, I share my journey of working from home as a freelance writer.
Maybe my blog will share a few skeletons in my closet but I’ll mostly talk of the demons I’ve fought. Particularly the demon of depression. At some point in life, I battled depression which was caused by my life not turning out the way I’d mapped it out in my head. I got lost in the disappointment and it was such a tussle trying to get out of it. I turned to the internet for advice and that’s where I discovered various blogs. Years later, having slayed my demons, I thought “Why not do so for someone else?” My hope is what I share helps readers slay if just but one monster in your life.
Hi, I’m Mel. I have always enjoyed writing, but I have never really seen myself as a writer, until now. This way of expression has always been an undercurrent in my life: madly writing short stories as a child, writing letters to loved ones far away, or to a boyfriend who has broken my heart, and then there were the long essays written during my time at university.
In stressful times, I have always put a pen to paper (or now, I open the notebook in my phone). I reflect, constantly. And I have found myself writing down these reflections. One day, I decided to turn a couple of ideas into something – one, a short story, and the other, a serious article. They didn’t really serve a purpose besides a personal accomplishment, but then it was suggested that I start a blog. So, I did.
My blog is my writing – things that come to mind and interest me, as well as pieces of previous writing. They cover many genres and don’t all fit nicely into one box. But that’s me. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy !
By profession I am a full time Human Resource professional. I am a full-Time wife, daughter and sister. During the day I play various roles except for Myself. My blog Being pointless is a place and where I can be myself. The blog represents me, who I am, what is on my mind.
I basically write about the little things that I observe. Life values that inspire me. Traditions that annoy me. And I share my experience, asking the readers for their opinions and experiences. Usually the things I write, I get a feedback that people can relate to it easily. Its everyday its pointless.
I am into a lot of creative and artistic things. I do wall painting, DIY projects, event management, voracious reading, travelling, singing, dancing and writing. Job is for filling stomach but rest is for filling the soul. I love my blog and am proud of finally getting the courage to do my own blog.
My blog is called Typewriter Girl. When I was little, I had a typewriter and, having an active imagination, I would type stories of adventures and escape. I must have typed hundreds of stories. Many years later, and being older, I had a desire to capture what was happening in my life instead of just collecting photos in my mobile phone gallery, never to be looked at again. And so, I returned to typing, this time on a laptop, to start my personal blog.
My blog is about sharing little snippets of my life and about the things I love and which inspire me. From places I visit, to my beloved dog Boris, to the beauty in nature I see around me, I share my thoughts and photographs on my blog and hope that in some small way they might inspire others too.
