Some of you might have noticed, but I haven’t been totally active with publishing things lately. There is a reason for that! Burnout. Also known as writers block, or having a lack of creativity or motivation for writing. When I realized I was in a state of writers block, I said “this is my cue to take a break from writing and focus on other things, like my art.” Continue reading “Dealing with Burnout (& blog updates)”

Day Dreaming. . .

I own a book shop. It’s quiet and cozy and smells like coffee, ink, and pumpkin pie spices. My book shop sits on the corner of the town market place, I love it here because I get to meet the most interesting people. I guess it helps that I carry every book anyone could ever want and somehow never run out of them.

Autumn Blog Party

Hello everyone and welcome my blog party on Written in the Ink Blog! I’m super excited about hosting blog parties and posts where everyone can share their blog/blog post link and interact with other bloggers in the community.

Here are the guidelines for this blog party:

  • You don’t have to follow me, but it would be highly recommended and appreciated.
  • You can only share one working blog link to your blog so the comments don’t get crowded.
  • The comments will be turned off on the 20th.

And that’s all! Comment away everyone and check out some new blogs!

I don’t think I would have been this enthusiastic about blogging if the Community Pool and First Friday wasn’t around when I first made a WordPress account. Continue reading “Finding Friends in the Blogging World”

My 7 Basic Tips For Blogging

As promised, when I reached 900+ followers I would start writing a post series about blogging and about my time blogging here on WordPress, enjoy!

Over the years of blogging and having a blog, I’ve noticed a few things bloggers do. These things include self premonition on other blogs, spamming the comment sections, mass liking of posts they haven’t even read, and the “follow for a follow”.

I’ve compiled a list of tips and tricks all bloggers should know, and some pointers for blogging successfully, and just being a better blogger in general. Continue reading “My 7 Basic Tips For Blogging”

I Like Being In Silence, But I Don’t Like Being Lonely

I like sitting in silence drinking coffee, drawing, imagining what the future has in store for my life, and what will happen.

I like listening to classical music – music without words alone so I can narrate and sing the lyrics to a wordless symphony without outside commentary or voices.

I like swaying and moving to music alone so I can dance the way the music leads me, and not another body.

I like photographing the forest to the voices of the birds to guide my feet and camera lens. Continue reading “I Like Being In Silence, But I Don’t Like Being Lonely”
