thoughts from my mind to yours


Question – Why do you create (write/ take pictures/ draw/ cook)?

Hello Everyone,

I thought I would do an engagement exercise and learn more about my wonderful blogging community…I would like to know, Why do you create? Whether it’s a piece of writing or an art work…whether it’s waiting for hours for that perfect picture or mastering the perfect recipe…

Why do you create? Would love to read your comments and might add the most liked comment to the post ! Hope to hear from all of you! This exercise will be open until the end of February!


Thank you!

Do check out my previous blog recommendations and stay tuned for more! Some are old favorites and some new finds…I love what each of these blogs bring to their audience…rich in content be it poetry, stories or photography, they captivate their audience and keep them coming back for more!

Below is the list in no particular order:


Syl65’s Blog: I have been following Sylvester’s work since my early days at wordpress…He shares beautiful messages, little reminders on the important things in life through his poetry that leave you with a smile on your face. I highly recommend visiting and following his blog if you haven’t done so already!
