Of course, the freshly pressed blogs really inspire me to take a magnifying glass and look at myself. I’m an aspiring writer (have always been and most probably – at the rate I’m going – will always be) and have written for-my-eyes-only. Whatever I’d written have always been received with cheers and sometimes standing ovation because so far I have been my own BEST audience.
Going through each post (esp. Freshly Pressed and then following the comments and the commentators to their blogs) has made me understand how many wonderful writers there are in this world. Each post is as amazing as the other one.
Blogs I’ve found through “Freshly Pressed”
Anglophonism I found her post witty, interesting and highly INFORMATIVE and so I immediately followed her. And thus began my journey into extinct-icity in terms of my so-called writing-skill. I began feeling small, smaller and the smallest with each new read. Then I became smallest, smallest-er and the smallest-est. But what an opportunity to learn and ~God forbid~ but I may plagiarize (forgive me all, if that seems to be the case because that’ll be purely coincidental). It’s only because I’m being inspired (that I may begin to think your way).
Through Anglophonism I found iammarcello and tried to crack what the blog-name meant (I decoded a little bit – a cello player, perhaps). Failed. Found out it read I am Marcello (if I am not wrong). I also found jumpforjoyphotoproject and wondered how come it never crossed my mind to do such a wonderful thing. I mean having jumped so many times for a click, perspiring and exhausting in the process, it never occurred to me to do a photo-project like that. All my puny brain could think of was – showing them off on Facebook. I’m on the verge of vanishing from the face of the earth.
Fresh as Schmuck followed me (my first Follow), a ray of hope… I may not vanish after all. The first “like” came from iammarcello (thank you, if i haven’t done it already. It could’ve only been because I must have been overwhelmingly speechless/ fingerless ~to type~). Before this, in all honesty, I was the only one to “like” my own posts.
Then one of my posts got its first comment from Katlaire and I know I’m here to stay. I will not fade away, no matter how small I feel. Rather, I will grow. Hers is a blog that makes me see the “other” side I have never seen/ will never see. It’s amazing how we feel the same and I’ve really come to a conclusion (without jumping into one) that we are who we are whether we decide to stay single or marry the person one cannot live without.
For my budding blogging history, I can definitely mark yesterday (31.07.2012) as a milestone. I’ve visited a number of blogs, thanks to “Freshly Pressed” and also have been visited the most as well. I had a busy day yesterday. It all started with this —-> http://hilariouslyeverafter.wordpress.com/2012/07/30/you-marriage-no-friends/
Then I found them…
- http://bottledworder.wordpress.com/2012/07/25/my-blog-audience/ Wishful thinking, that’s what this post is for me. One day, maybe I’ll be able to write like you. I’d like to worship you, really…. WOW!! Zillion cheers!!!
- theyoungplum.wordpress.com/And I thought I was funny.
- sophia It took me forever to decode “fourdoodlesandataco” but I had fun visiting her site. It was different, light and undoubtedly humorous.
- http://fortyteencandles.wordpress.com/This one here could be me some years later and if that’s the case… hell yeah!!! I’m up for it. I have a lot, a whole lot to learn from you and by the time I get there, I know there would be more learning left. Keep paving my way!!
and some more…
and many more….. I had a good day yesterday and I hope to have a better day today. Thanks you all. Thanks “Freshly Pressed”
I feel good to be single working for “peanuts” and living a hand-to-mouth existence because it all adds up to an opportunity to explore, discover and re-discover myself ALL ON MY OWN. Optimistic to the core :sigh:
