Double genealogy the adoption witness blog

I never intended to write a book, or blog. I wrote a book, and now, I blog, in order to sell the book, so said my publisher. I wrote the book because mine is a skeptical family, who will scorn me out if proven to have offered an uninformed conclusion. If I don’t sell a book, I feel anyway, that I met my mission.

My mission seemed simple; to find my grandfather’s birth document and identify his mother’s heritage from mid-19th century Scotland, and then to inform my family. First half done; second, to roll out this week. The effort, though, revealed that his birth was illegitimate, and he was adopted outside his biological family. Same for his non-related cousin. Such posed huge problems for moving forward. I was able to propose eight parents to cover the two adoptees. However, typical of their time, there existed no documents of adoption, and story-telling had to substitute for DNA certainty, over parent selection. 

How to present the tons of “proof” data, from a five year research effort? Write, cite and caveat. Then to throw it up to the cloud so my worldwide family could capture, and others could cannibalize? Or, copyright. So now, the researcher who is not a writer, is stuck with a book and a blog. OK, I admit, it is fun.

Murder in Common blog

Murder in Common blog 

Murder in Common blog (MiC)) is about crime fiction books and their authors. Mainly, it features debut and mid-list writers, with the occasional personal post. MiC also includes links to my published Flash Fiction.

The blog started as a project for a University of Toronto social media program. My classmates were supportive of the idea and as I love crime fiction, it was a natural pairing.  Since then, I’ve joined Sisters in Crime, SinC Toronto, and was a panelist at Bouchercon – Toronto. All in all it’s been very rewarding.

Existential Tableau blog

Existential Tableau blog

My blog is mainly set up to promote my short novel – Existential Tableau – which is a lateral thinker’s approach to life. I am a fan of mixing the practical with the arcane; hopefully, my short novel conveys these two qualities well. I also share my thoughts on a variety of topics – there are links to my articles for the Korea Times on my blog. I am passionate about English teaching, so I share my perspective with the world. Who knows, maybe someone’s life will be positively influenced?

My philosophical musings inspired me to set up the blog. I was searching for the best way to publish my short novel – Reddit, Facebook, Twitter.. there was always something missing. Until I stumbled across WordPress. It’s a great site. I am going to reach 100 pages at one point.

Infinite Stairwell. Life is a constant thought process.

Silva Chege blog

Silva Chege blog

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

1.Be a conduit for debates on contemporary issues.         
2.A means of connecting with fellow creatives                 
3.A library of all my shorts stories, film reviews and think pieces etc.                                 

 4.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.

Disney World Adventurer blog 

My website is called “A Disney World Adventurer” .

My blog is about sharing my Walt Disney World travel experiences, helping others by sharing my photos and stories, since Walt Disney World can be overwhelming at times to plan. I also love hearing back from others about their own Disney experiences! 

I’ve always followed so many other Disney World bloggers, Disney is my passion and one day I thought, “why can’t I do that too?” I’ve only been blogging for about a month and a half, but I am so thankful for everyone that I’ve been able to connect with, and have so much fun sharing my experiences. Disney is my favorite thing to talk and write about!

Elleguyence blog

Elleguyence blog 

My blog is a creative writing blog that gears towards poetry and prose. I also use my platform to share blogging tips, how to gain readership, advice on writing, and other creative activities to engage with my readers.
Originally, I was inspired to start my blog because I wanted a place to put all my content that I had previously kept private. It was meant more for myself, and I sincerely thought that no one wanted to hear my stories anyway.
In my first six months, I gained 2,000 followers—and at that point, I knew that this was really something special. Building this blog meant sharing my thoughts with other WordPress readers, and hoping I could connect with them. I think my reach has suggested that I really have made that connection, and I hope to continue to nurture it!

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.
