As another blogger, Kally, recently said upon receiving another award, “to be singled out by the nominator who has a lot of readers and to be remembered” is, indeed, an honor. This time, the honor is doubly mine for having been nominated by, Eva PoeteX! I am most assuredly humbled, and strongly encourage you to visit her blog(s), Sought After Blood Lines, Eva PoeteX, and (one of which I had not been aware!) BeLove BeLieve. You will NOT be disappointed, I’m sure!

HOW DID I START BLOGGING?
I began blogging on WordPress a bit over three years ago, I think, and did so simply as one means of sharing my ideas. At the time my ideas and perspectives ranged from the political to theological, philosophical to cultural, personal/psychological to the arts. Much has changed since then; my focus now is more mytho-poetic and/or mystical. (I recently began a new blog to posts thoughts, ideas and perspectives on … hmmm, mostly strictly religious topics as a way of being able to “vent” and yet keep my original blog pure.)
WHAT ADVICE WOULD I GIVE A NEW BLOGGER?
Very, very honestly, I cannot think of better advice to give than that of Eva: “One word: Engage. The ways to do that: 1. Post quality content often, but not too often (as in multiple posts a day). 2. Re-blog posts that you find to be valuable. 3. Actually speak with your followers. Comment on and ‘like’ their posts, too.” And would I add to this? Perhaps. Do not get discouraged by the number of “likes” and/or comments (or lack thereof.) Blog from the heart, the soul, creatively engaging your mind because you want to … or, in many cases, have to; not for recognition by others.

And with this, I say again to Eva, “thank you;” to all of the rest, “All the best with many blessings!”
