Virtual Blog Tour – The Stars And The Journey

reno rock logo new

 

 

I will be honest, I was a bit hesitant to do this tour when Belsbor first told me about this…the reason was, I did not quite know if there was any process to my writing and  if I could do justice to this tour; however, after giving it some thought, I came to a conclusion that this was unique and something I had not done before, so getting out of my comfort zone, I was honoured and grateful to accept this from Belsbor. You can see his Virtual Blog Tour (VBT) Here: http://belsbror.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/genuine-gems/

Belsbor is a versatile blogger, showcasing posts ranging from poetry, to short stories and  life events.  He is also a great influence and a motivator for  new, experienced and somewhere in between bloggers (like myself)  here at wordpress. If you have not seen his blog yet, I suggest you do so now as you are certainly missing out!

 

Now on to the Stars of this Tour! It was hard for me to pick three as this community is filled with so many of you, it is like watching the night sky! But as per requirement here are three amazing bloggers who I am so honoured to feature  today! They are indeed stars in all aspects spreading their light and message through each post in their blogs. They lift your heart up with beautiful words for the soul, and connect with you in the day to day aspect of life, so you never feel alone.

 The Stars

 

Original Dante:  If you want to read poetry and creative pieces that is meaningful and always evokes emotion from the heart, this blog is the place to be. I admire each post and writing in this blog and he definitely holds true to his words that he says about himself in his about page ”  I promised myself, never to publish half-baked pieces of writing, only my best; striving for the original. Stick around, I’ll make it worth your while.” – And he does. His work is inspiring, genuine and he always makes it worth while .

 

 

Rcrate:  Rose’s poetry will touch your heart in the most beautiful way. Her simple yet genuine writing will make your heart smile and fall in love with her poetry. She states: ” I’ve always had a love of poetry and a great appreciation for 19th century literature. ” And her love and appreciation comes forth in her work. Her short pieces connects with the reader in the most gentle way, and she is definitely a poet who inspires me.  I highly recommend everyone to check out her lovely blog and writing. 

 

 

Ronovanwrites: Ron is an author and a versatile blogger whom I have come to admire as someone who can connect with his audience at a personal level through the content of his posts. He is very informative and I encourage all bloggers (especially new ones) to visit his blogs for some great tips and links for writing, and to get some great encouragement. His writing is genuine, he states , “I want to share my world as I rediscover it after having lost part of it not long ago in a mind jarring way”, and though it is sad to learn that he had to go through that experience, I am glad we get to to see the world he shares through his blog, as it is indeed memorable. 

 

The Journey

 

Now, back to questions on my writing process which I will try to answer the best I can. 🙂

1.) What am I working on?

At this point, as some of you may know from my previous posts that I am a bit busy so not really working on anything… But I am very spontaneous when it comes to writing, if the idea arrives it has to be written or I will not be able to sleep – literally! Most of the poetry I have posted on this blog has been a result of spontaneous combustion 😀 . I have also been working on some long term projects of various fiction that are on hold for the moment.

2.) How does my work differ from others of each genre? &  3.) Why Do I create what I do?

I feel my writing is more simple than the other creative minds of this genre. I write with both my heart and mind and I hope to connect with my audience in both places. I do not know if that makes me different…  I write because I love to write and my spirits are boosted when I connect with my readers through my writing.

 

4.) How does your writing creative process work? 

As I said my writing is very spontaneous, I am constantly inspired by nature, by my loved ones, music and on occasions by sorrow I see or feel around me. I am empathetic by nature ( I think most writers and artists are), and a lot of my writing is also inspired through that. I detest editing. Almost all of my poetry is the very first draft that I write. I feel you are in that moment once and changing it would change the feeling you had when you first wrote it. It does not mean I have not played around with some words and edited any of my pieces, I have, but for the most part they have been the first draft. As for my fiction, I grudgingly take on the editing aspect. 😀 I admire creative minds as they inspire me a great deal, and I am truly blessed to be surrounded by so many of them here in this community as well as in my personal life.

 

That is all folks!

 

Thank you all for taking the time to read this VBT, I hope you visit each of the stars and see their amazing work! Thanks again to Belsbor for the opportunity! Have a great day everyone!

Weekly Blog Recommendation – Lifestyle Blog list 1

Hi Everyone,

Happy First Weekend of June! I thought I would bring you some blogs I follow of bloggers who write about life, relationships, gardening, world issues and other things and usually leave a positive and meaningful message in their posts. A lot of them are poets and photographers as well, but because of the versatility in their content I felt I would do this category for these lovely people who uplift the blogging world by sharing theirs 🙂 As always previous lists can be found under the recommendation section. There will be many more lists this month so stay tuned!

 

1.) Ramblings from Jewels  

I have been following Julie for a while now and am always uplifted by her beautiful posts. She also writes beautiful poetry and takes some wonderful photos, especially the ones of her garden. Her posts are always positive and full of meaning that we can use in our life. I encourage everyone to check out her blog.

 

2.) Chronic Conditions and Life Lessons

I started following Kim a couple months ago and am always touched with her heartfelt writing she usually shares on family and relationships. She used to be professional entrepreneur and I was quite inspired by her about me page. As her blog title suggests , there are many life lessons that her posts usually hold and I hope everyone checks out her beautiful blog.

 

3.) Writing to Freedom

Brad is also a poet but like these bloggers here on the list has a very versatile content in his blog. He shares many inspiring stories and messages that make us think and reflect on life. I highly recommend everyone to go check out his blog and enjoy his uplifting posts on life.

 

4.) Underground Energy

I have recently started following Lisa and she is another blogger with many talents. She  is a mother of four beautiful girls and shares her poetry, crafts and posts on life which are thought provoking and meaningful. I hope everyone takes the time to go see her wonderful work.

 

5.) Witlessdatingafterfifty

Robin is another blogger whose posts always leave you thinking, whether it is her poetry, her thoughts on relationships, family or books. Her posts are well thought out, meaningful and engaging. I recommend all my readers to go check out her wonderful blog and the positive vibe she shares on life.

 

***Note to any bloggers featured in these weekly posts, if you wish for me to remove your name from this list due to any reason please let me know, and I will do so. Also all of the excerpts featured (if featured)  are the works of the bloggers listed, they  each own the copyrights to their own piece and it is not my intention to take credit for it in anyway, hope that is clear to all readers. This is just my effort to appreciate good work. If any bloggers feel that their work has not been properly credited or should not be on the list let me know and I shall remove it. Again thank you all for sharing your beautiful work
