Moments blog 

My name is Marta Pombo Sallés. I come from Catalonia and I am a German and English teacher working in a high school near Barcelona. I have been teaching both languages since 1990. Both at work and in my free time I always feel the need to create things.

This blog is about what I do at certain MOMENTS of life, basically in my free time. I mainly write poems, sometimes a few short stories, and I post all this with photos I take. I have written a few literary reviews and have occasionally posted some of my dancing.

In 2015 two important things happened in my life. The first one was that I made friends with American artist-writer Mario Savioni,  whose blog I strongly recommend. Here is the link: Mario Savioni blog

Meeting Mario meant recovering things that I had neglected a bit in my life like my love for arts and literature. I started to read Mario’s poetry and short story books and ended up reviewing his 5 self-published books till now.

While I was in this process I had a compelling need to write. I showed Mario some of my humble poems and short stories and he was always very supportive. He even helped me reedit a few pieces. By that time, December of 2015, my father died. That was the second event that made me keep on creating whether it was dancing or writing. This formed part of my healing process after the loss of my father.

In 2016 I started my blog with the help of a friend who works in the field of computers. Then I noticed that what basically led me to start blogging was the self-healing effect and pleasure this whole process was having on me.

My main motivation has not changed since starting. As I said before, blogging for me is basically therapy and pleasure. I have crossed paths with many talented bloggers and this sharing has a karma effect of giving and taking, which I strongly believe is what life is about.

This blogging experience is highly rewarding in terms of feeling much better psychologically speaking, and also, being able to help others feel appreciated and valued for their great talents.

In sum, I have learnt a lot about other people’s lives, thoughts and feelings, about their excellent creations, mostly literary works.

In 2016, I had just finished final revisions on a novel that I thought 
might actually be publishable (unlike the other two I had previously 
attempted). When I researched the current publishing landscape to get up 
to speed on what it would take to get the novel published, I encountered 
the phrase “building author platform.” Again and again and again. There 
was no escaping it. I needed an author’s website.

“Elizabeth Gauffreau” includes the complete list of my previous publications in literary magazines, as well as links to stories and poems that are accessible 
online. The site also includes a blog, which, as it turns out, I greatly 
enjoy.

The blog gives me a venue for randomly spouting off about all 
things writing without having to accost strangers in the street-and 
people respond!

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 !

Well, essentially I wanted my blog to represent a number of things:

  • Be a conduit for debates on contemporary issues.         
  • A means of connecting with fellow creatives       
  • A library of all my shorts stories, film reviews and think pieces etc. 
  • Finally, and most importantly, a form of self-expression. My mind is constantly overflowing with thoughts and ideas, and I felt that creating a blog was the best way of getting them all out before I exploded.

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!

Alien Poems blog

Alien poems blog

We are group of bloggers/artists together writing in a blogging community and I am the admin of the community.

I too have a blog where I write haiku poems, freestyle poems and short stories. I write on social or political issues as well. I care about nature too.

I welcome everyone to have a wonderful reading.

 Let me introduce myself as an Alien Poet. I am an Engineer and a poet.  I started writing poems from very young age.

I would like to write not only poems but anything that attracts readers to my blog. I write to the taste of the readers rather writing myself.

I write from Poetry to Political satire, Short stories etc. I even have a community blog and being as admin of the blog. I host the blog with nearly 15 Authors for publishing and promoting their work.

I was writing in a notebook for many years and when I learn about blogging 6 years ago I started off a blog for publishing those works. And slowly learnt to write the situation and current happenings rather sticking to the old style of poetry.

I even tried self publishing and unfortunately it turned out to be not successful and I like to continue publishing through blog until I get a suitable publisher.

I welcome every blogger to promote on my Alien poems blog being an Author themselves. Thus they can ping back to their personal blog.
