Guest Blogger: I Think My Way


Name: Divyang Shah
Blog Site:

Description of Blog:I write what comes through my life experience and what I feel I should write about. Sometimes, I just start typing and write what comes naturally from mind to fingers to page.

– What made you interested in blogging? When did you start?
I was reading stories from newspaper and listening to my grandfather from his childhood. Over the years, I sometimes thought about writing but never started. Once I have finished my bachelor’s & masters in computer, I had a vast knowledge of blogs and related topics. I used to read & write answers on Quora. There I started my blog on Quora. By doing this my interest in writing increased dramatically. During that time, I started WordPress blog and also participated in to write poems & articles some of which got selected. I also participated in one international group competition where all group members write and give reviews on each other’s writing. There also I got appreciation. The story I submitted for the competition is called: Life Across BorderThis is how I became more interested in blogging.I started my blog 1.5 years ago, since then, that I haven’t looked back.

-If you could give one piece of advice what would you say?
I will say, today many people says that it’s time to earn money and once we earn enough we will fulfill our dreams and follow our passion. But, that’s the wrong mentality. Because you will never feel that you earned enough rather you just need follow your passion parallel. Who knows it may open up new door to success.\.

-What is something you’ve always wanted to try but haven’t gotten around to trying?
Writing Book! I wish I could write a book just once. I feel I can write small story books but not a novel or even series, but anything can happen. Who knows what is hidden inside the future.

-What makes you the happiest?
I can be happy in small moments. I am the happiest when meet my family, read some good article, doing garba (Gujarati dance) ;p or reciting god’s songs and of course writing.

Guest Blogger bluevibesblog

Today’s guest blogger is Leopoldo De Samaniego (yeah, a mouthful, I get that a lot).His blog site is called bluevibesblog. He likes to release how he is feeling. He’s been wanting to talk about music which he does and he wants to start publishing his short stories.

He started his blog because his brother started a blog. Leopoldo said, “I’ve been craving a platform to express myself, so maybe 4 days after he started his own blog I started my own. I saw his views were like 100-200, then thought, “I could do that, but better.” And I did, he usually posts, like maybe once a month-ish, but I took it more serious as I’ve started using my site as a more serious platform to get my word and work out there.”

He would like to achieve from his blog is getting his wisdom and personal work out into the world. He wants to write in a serious manner but to also keep it fun and interesting. He states, “I want to be known, but not make it feel like a job and force myself to do it, which will start making it not feel as fun.” When he isn’t busy he likes to relax and adventure around his city.


His advice to all who are reading this is: “Follow your dream, improve every day, dedicate sometime to what your hobby is and make your hobby into something serious if you want to take it to the next level. I always thought those whole “follow your dreams” “you can do it” quotes are really corny and bullshitty but really, yeah, that’s what it is and what it’s about. Do what you love, keep it fun, and do it well. My momma always told me if I wanted to do something, do it right and be the best at it.”

Leopoldo wants to write a novel or two. However, it sounds easier than actually getting around to starting. He said, “Just the thought you’re actually about to do this real big thing — well at least big in your (my) head — is scary. It’s like wanting to go parachuting but then regretting it last minute once you’re already up in the plane and you basically have no alternative, sorta embarrassing to ask to come back, wouldn’t you think?”

I couldn’t agree more with him. The intimidation I get from facing a blank page always scares me which is one reason why I try to avoid blank pages as much as possible. In my office at work I have a folder filled with paper that can be recycled and mostly used on one side. So I take those papers and start writing, it calms me.

Guest Blogger: Cee’s Photography

This week’s guest blogger is Cee Neuner creator of Her blog is mainly about photography and building a community of other photography enthusisests. Typically Cee has four challenges a week which are: Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, Cee’s Which Way Challenge, Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge, Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge, and Share Your World. Cee also teaches photography composition lessons once a month. Cee is extremely talented and passionate about her work. She first joined the online community called to sell photography prints which didn’t work out too well. In doing so another community for photographers came along called she joined for about three years. Then she opened her own blog which has been going for almost four years now!!


One takeaway that she wants her readers to get is to have fun doing whatever you enjoy! Life is too short to waste on things you don’t want to do. I asked Cee what makes her the happiest? Cee said, “Happiness, in my opinion, is a state of mind.  Yes, there are various types of happiness, but it comes from believing and knowing that happiness can be achieved.  It is not something that is granted to you.  Some of my most memorable adventures are those where I decided to be happy no matter what.  Shortly after Chris and I moved to Oregon, I was really sick, after nearly dying for the second time (see my Lyme Disease). Chris and I went out for the day to ride our Max train (light rail public transportation) across town just to see what Portland looked like. I was hurting so bad and was very down that day. I didn’t want to disappoint Chris, so I agreed to go. I started the day out crying on the train. I decided I can make this a happy day or stay in the dumps.  I decided to make it a happy day and it was a happy day!  It didn’t make the pain ago away, but my attitude changed dramatically.”

If you’d like to see some more of Cee’s photos, please visit her blog at: Cee is a talented photographer so I highly suggest you check her out! I want to say thank you to Cee for taking time out and answering the questions.


Guest Blogger: emotionsoflife2016

This is my first Guest Blogger in what I hope will be a series that is updated each week with some brilliant people.Today’s Guest Blogger is Manuel.


He is the creator of emotionsoflife2016. His blog is about all the emotions we feel as we go through this never ending journey called life. I asked Manuel some questions for this guest blog. I asked him for a small intro about his site he said, “Some poems are sad (most of them) cause my life has been full of sadness but what can I say. So drop by and hope you like my emotions.” Reader’s he is brilliant in all his work.

Next I asked what made you interested in blogging? When did you start?

“I have always wanted to be a poet, but my teachers and peers killed that dream (or at least they tried to kill it). So I stopped writing. I picked it up again when I was 23 for a few years and then stopped again. Finally, in February 2016 I decided to do what I love which is writing. I started blogging as a way to break my fear of criticism from other people. I decided to put my emotions on the internet to break my phobia and now here I am trying to get my first poetry book going.”

What is something you wish to achieve through your blog? If you could give one piece of advice what would you say?

  • One, to get all my emotions out.
  • Two, to let people know that they are not alone feeling what they are feeling.
  • Three, to be the best poet I can be.

If I could give one piece of advice it would be to be authentic, be you. Never try to imitate another person.

What is something you’ve always wanted to try but haven’t gotten around to trying?
-I always wanted to be able to visit Germany, but so far no luck. But one day I will.
What makes you the happiest?
-Not many things in this world make me happy. The only thing that makes me feel free is writing. I always say if my body allowed me, I would write 24/7/
I also asked Manuel to share any interesting facts about his part of the world along with a poem that you all would be able to enjoy. Please visit emotionsoflife2016 for more of his work.
I would also like to share with your readers that aside from classical music, I love Metal music, as a matter of fact, I used to be the lead singer of a Black Metal band call Acerbus Imperium. I also love to read books on psychology. Aside from those little things about me, I would like to share a poem with your readers:


Not The Writer You Want

I am sorry I don’t write like you, I have a different view.
I may not be a Dante Alighieri, Homer or Virgil
But for me my writings are universal.
They mean something to me and that’s all that matter
I follow my own pattern.
You may not understand it, it’s OK cause they were written by a misfit.

I don’t follow the rules, those are for fools.
I only follow my heart and soul that is my only goal.
I let my emotions take control and let myself be sucked up by the black hole.
I only write what I feel that was the deal.
I am sorry that for you I am not a writer just cause I am not brighter.
