Blogging with Bojana blog

Blogging with Bojana blog

LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF:  My name is Bojana and I’m running a blog called Bojana’s Coffee and Confessions to go.

I am a teacher, a writer, a workaholic, a perfectionist, a skeptic, a realist with dreams, an art lover, a travel freak, a tennis fan, a coffee junkie, a carnivore, an environmentalist, a political being, a good person, a bitch, a neurotic, a soul searcher, a careful daughter, a caring daughter, a missing sister, a part-time wife, a part-time friend, and a full-time mom. I am a citizen of the world (who happens to be the citizen of Serbia), once a permanent resident of Canada, now a German permanent residence permit holder, a legal alien in all three.

WHAT AM I DOING HERE? To answer this question, I have to go back a year and a half ago when my blogging adventure started. I remember I couldn’t sleep, being suddenly flooded with dozens of thoughts, a rush of emotions and an unstoppable urge to get out of bed, and start to write. Back then, I wasn’t even sure what about. Last time I had written something had been 20 years before, and I knew how liberating it had felt. As time went by, I stopped. I was constantly pressed for time since I began studying and then working and I simply forgot, not how to write but to write in the first place. 

Anyway, I decided to play it by ear. I believed it was a mental breakthrough, a sudden insight, an epiphany. On the other hand, I was aware of the fact those undefined perplexing thoughts which came rushing to my mind were also a result of inner turmoil, disturbance, confusion, sadness, rage, anxiety and restlessness I’d been feeling. My writing actually started as a self-healing attempt, a process of recovery, a journey I was determined to embark on in hopes of getting out of my mess. As a result, my early posts were designed as an attempt to get to the root of my obnoxious mood swings and stress. I would often refer to it as soul-searching, reconciliation and finding peace I had been longing for.

DID I LET THE GENIE OUT? I most definitely did and by doing so I found a whole lot more than I had bargained for. As my readership was growing, and I was discovering new interesting topics, my posts began to undergo a change. Besides, I made friends with some gorgeous people who helped me heal by, among other things, reaching out and asking me to open up. Consequently, I started writing about growing up amidst the crisis, war and challenging post-war years in Yugoslavia where I grew up, which has with time evolved into a series of bitter sweet posts I’m exceptionally proud of.

In the meantime, I started successfully writing engaging poetry and short stories. At the moment, I’m working on a number of posts with a fellow blogger I think the world of, namely a satire about the rise of nationalism and other bad isms worldwide. You can find the first installment on my site already. 

If you want to find out more, you’ll have to visit my blog. What you need to know for now is I can’t take bullshit and speaking straight from the shoulder, however painful and shocking, is something I’m rather good at. I have frequently been called a fierce and uncompromising writer who doesn’t want to look away and a force to be reckoned with. I love stream of consciousness, sarcasm, criticizing sentimentality and society, and using both formal and informal language in a single piece of writing. When I don’t bitch about injustice and exploitation, I’m still trying to figure out how to cope the best way I can.

Pink Peeli blog 

I am a Doctor who loves writing and who is in love with words.. I enjoy each time I write something and it makes me feel myself. I just love to write everything which my heart pours out and it includes my imagination, dreams, feelings, hope, love, and lot more.. I was someone who started writing at the age of 10 probably.. Nothing much; but all what I felt like to put in words. And it’s been just 5 months that I started blogging.. And what made me start a blog is that I wanted a home or nest where all my poems and thoughts can live together happily and they will be able to enjoy the writings of more wonderful people.. When I started, I never knew how it would be.. But really speaking.. It’s been amazing💖. The support from my WordPress community is immense and I enjoy reading beautiful people here..

The nerdy lion blog

The Nerdy Lion blog was created to foster change, it doesn’t necessarily have a singular purpose like other blogs as mine tackles anxiety, writing, blogging and a plethora of other topics. My blog is about shattering the status quo and breaking down stereotypes and other pre-existing paradigms in society. The Nerdy Lion is a symbol of that, because a Lion is viewed as courageous and the king of his/her domain. Meanwhile, a nerd is the antithesis to that, socially awkward and shunned. I believe anyone can be a Lion, regardless of how you look or how society pegs you and there is something powerful in that realization. I want people who read my blog to find their inner Lion and become the best version of themselves. And rule the jungle while they are at it.

 As with most, I am a writer on the brink of becoming the next big thing (funny joke right?) I started this blog because, I love writing. It is my one true passion and this blog allows me to fulfill that fire burning inside. Blogging was also a way to validate my writing and help me to establish that I was a competent writer in the first place. There is also the small potential that maybe someone who can get my books published will stumble onto my website and make all of my dreams come true. So, there’s that. Aside from me, I was inspired to create my blog, because I wanted to help people. I have had many tragedies in my life that I have had to endure and successfully conquered. Because of that, I felt as though I should help others with their problems,  even if it is through the awkward lenses of my life. You never know who you could potentially help or touch through the simple act of writing words. So, I do it the best I can the nerdiest way possible.

Dreaming reality blog

My name is Cheryl. I started my Dreaming Reality Blog on the suggestion of my oldest son while we were living in Costa Rica, as a means to share our experiences with family and friends back home. Being an avid photographer and writer, there was so much beauty and peace to be found there. It filled to the brim after I posted book chapters from my novel, Forever Never/Dawn of the Dream and from so many photos.
Blog also has a variety of posts, including philosophical ideas, a couple of chapters from sequel novel, and the occasional poem. I love participating in weekly prompts s I am able and have my own weekend #free48 series where I share photos from my weekend excursions.
Most of all, I love meeting so many people from diverse backgrounds and creative souls who, like me, often feel out of place in their day to days lives. We are out here! I would love to meet you and hear about your walk in this dream we call living.

Love and Light always….

Dancing words blog 

What motivated me to write is simply the tag line of my blog . ” When my heart is full I reach to my pen to pour out. That’s my way to empty myself . And I believe to it’s very much needed to create space for new things in life. My writing are just a reflection of everything I see and experience in my life and in people around me. For a long time, I kept the writings to myself . What motivated me to start the blog was simply a demotivating and dull phase in my career ( academics) , as I am still a student . And I felt the need of something to start something new in life.

From Private to Public Blog

From Private to Public Blog

  From Private to Public

 My blog isn’t about one thing in particular. And to be honest, I’m not sure what it’s about, exactly.  What I can say—and this is rather selfish—is that my blog is to help me improve as a writer. My goal, whether it takes months or years, is to create a novel that lasts. I will not attempt to publish something that I feel is not my best work, at the time. I want to publish work I am proud of; work I feel is important; and work that brings enjoyment to anyone who reads. I do, at times, write on education, as I am a teacher. And some of my stories are geared towards children.

    Clients and readers of my work, have called my style, humorous, controversial, unique, clever, imaginative, fresh, classic in ways yet contemporary in others.

So, my blog is about connecting with writers, learning from them, receiving feedback, and using that feedback to grow every day.

It was the end of June, 2017, and I stumbled into my small apartment, exhausted yet relieved that school had ended and summer break would begin. Ah, summer break. One of the reasons I became an elementary educator—not the only reason, but a main one (I was in my early 20s, after all). But this summer was different: it was the first summer I would spend as a married individual. Normally, I would spend my summers reading, playing video games, going out—you know, being lazy. This particular summer, though, I had a much more important priority: to provide for my wife. I had no summer job, and no way of bringing in money to pay the necessary bills. Yes, exactly—not good!

Just a month before that summer began, my wife noticed a passion in me, that I did not see in myself. She saw in me, a love for reading, writing, and storytelling. What she did next, would change my life. She gave me a journal (one very special to her), and told me to pursue my dream. So, I did. And that same summer, I ended up ghostwriting for ten different clients, who all gave me incredible feedback, appreciated my writing style, and paid me very well. Thank—goodness!

I continued this trend, until my current pursuit of a Master’s degree took top priority. It was then, that both of my professors questioned why I don’t have a blog; and why I was not sharing my writing. They, along with my wife, encouraged me to begin this blog. It’s now been close to three weeks, and already, I am hooked (too hooked at times. Whoops!).
