P.S: Although it is a great day of celebration, I am facing some woes from wordpress…I just noticed that it had somehow unfollowed ¬†many of my close blogger friends…so if you haven’t seen me on your blog (via likes or comments) for a while, please drop me a message so I can follow again! I have already re-followed a handful!

Here are the rules:

* Mention the person who tagged you
* Answer the questions in full
* Don’t forget to tag up to ten other bloggers at the end

Here are the questions:

How did you get into blogging?

I got into blogging on a whim. I was not sure about what my blog would be, but I knew that I wanted to write. I had always enjoyed writing, and poetry is where I had found solace in words. This piece I wrote share what I hope my words will find: Let me find hope. So I wrote…Needless to say, I was overwhelmed by the love and support of this community…I got to interact with so many other wonderful, talented bloggers, some of whom I now call my friends, who gave me a sense of belonging in this blogging atmosphere. I may have gotten into blogging on a whim but I stayed in the blogging community because of the amazing experience I had (am having) with all of you, where I can share and read the words and photographs that come from the heart. I could not have asked for anything better.

What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?

Blog about what matters to you, connect with the community, there is a whole new world waiting to connect with you and your work. ūüôā

What would be your dream campaign?

My dream campaign would be to promote the power of imagination, for everyone to imagine and follow their own dreams to do what makes them happy. And to spread hope and kindness in all hearts.

Do you have a plan for your blog?

My plan is to continue writing and connecting with fellow bloggers, to learn their stories and share mine. ūüôā

 

What do you think about rankings?

I am not too fond of rankings, I like to appreciate all work that is done with passion and from the heart.

Writing to Freedom

Ashish-Vision

Lorrie Bowden

Ramblings from Jewels
