A Macro view

20140210-194611.jpg

I had some time and  have been looking for a new and fun community to join. I went through this process by going to the Daily Post at WordPress’s page : Blog Event Listing . While I was there I found Lens and Pens by Sally  photo  challenge: Phoneography Challenge .Which happens every Monday  and today’s assignment is Macro Photography .As you can see I may have missed the mark a bit. But the photo in the bubble is small.

Besides, I  had fun using a new editing app called: Rookie.. It comes with four free editing packs, with 10 filters each. For the above photo I  used the Heavy Rain pack : Dusk and Starry.  With That said it’s been a joy, Leah

BUILD ON YOUR POPULAR CONTENT.

20140129-233439.jpg

O.M.G. day 28 is here at Zero to Hero. It went by so fast with 2 days to go. So, without further ado, I will start today’s project: DAY 28: BUILD ON YOUR POPULAR CONTENT.

As I look through my past posts, I find that readers so far like posts about new things or what’s I found in around the web. Such as : Weekly Round Up. For the weekly round-up I gave the readers some of my favorite finds found around the web.The other is : What I Found , This  where I gave shout outs to   interesting , and up lifting  blogs

I enjoy, sharing fun, educational, D.I.Y, Photography editing apps and soon my favorite fashion blogs. So, there will be lots more of those to come!

Also, Please! Bare with me as I will add new subjects to blog. Like, my post called: State of the Union . Which was not as popular as the two post mentioned above. It also wasn’t  as popular as my two pages Live 1 Café and Word Trips , which are   usually  missed.

But, I doubt I’ll do politics again or critique our president, for the fact I do respect him. Further more, I don’t want a forum  for anyone else to disrespect him. However, if he cuts my dental and eye care, than we got a problem :))))))

Well, expect to have some fun and uplifting things to come. As well as my uncommon opinion and view on current events. As I’m a Christian, a Woman , and a Writer , that’s in  progress of living.

Weekly Round Up.

Okay, My top three favorites sites for the week.

1) New Nostalgia  is an encouraging  and healthy blog that is founded by cancer survivor  Amy Bowmen  . Once you read her story on  battling with the illness, this will be your favorite blog. As it has healthy cancer fighting recipes and remedies . I tried some and they’re yummy! She  also has posts on  being a motherhood,  style and gardening. This, blog is a breath of new air to read.

You’ll want to know her better once your read the bio under her profile photo:

” Welcome to New Nostalgia! Here you’ll find my quest to be present in each moment, learning from yesterday and living simply in the NEW!” ~ Amy Bowmen

2)  Leaf T.V.  Is a refreshing site for food, fashion and d.i.y tutorial, the tutorial features: the Whitney Port series. Where did I find them? On , Insatgram. I saw a   3 second video on, how to make a quick and  healthy snack. Brilliant! Right?!

I mean, what girl doesn’t like food, fashion and wants to learn how to make her own  jewlery.  So, it’s a no brainier, that Leaf t.v  is the go to blog  that might have it all.

3) Comtentplating Beauty  by Gina  who’s  funny, endearing , a mother, and  a wife who makes really lovely crochet things!  Who’ll, share real parts of her life, among  the good graces that surround her. I saw this , when I read her  post about her  daughter  going off to college. She wrote about dealing with the separation of her daughter in living in another state.  Also,  she once shared  a childhood trauma> Both of  those storied  shows her vulnerability and bravery.

Gina’s Blog is where you to sip hot coco with a good friend, while you both smile and laugh at whatever comes your way 🙂

Well that’s my weekly round up, that I was happy to do. Thanks for challenge at Zero To Hero ‘s  DAY 23: PUBLISH A ROUNDUP.

Determine a Voice

Photo via: Pinterest also Link to artist through photo

a person who likes to write short stories, poetry and writing in general. I never thought that my blog needed a set voice. I thought it was much like storytelling one page at a time. However, It’s that one page that has to hook our readers in; that’s where I need help.

Unless, I can define my voice in blogging. Which is what I choose for ZeroToHero: Day 14: Blogger’s Choice! Where I found a couple of helpful resources to begin that journey. Here’s the first place I visited:developing your blogging voice  and second place:Grammar Girl: Understanding Voice and Tone in writing. Hopefully, once I get my voice, than I can get a set type of readers. Hence, my reasoning for discovering my blog self.

So, once I finish this post I will go back to my bookmarks and revisit each place. I just wanted to stop and share what I found along my trip. Because, as writers and bloggers we can never stop learning in this ever evolving world of words and roads.

What I found Today

I was blog cruising today for HerotoZero ‘s assignment for day 12.  Where, we feature a blog that inspired us to leave a comment on. As wells as elaborate on the comment and elements of the post that we agree or disagree with.  From that I happily came across: C.M.CrabTree post: Be Yourself, Love Yourself.

Who’s post is brave and poses some  questions that should be well thought out. One  question she asked,that I liked, was: “will they like me if they know how I really feel?” She asked this about people in general, whom one would seek approval from.

I gave that question a few minutes of  thought and  came up with a pretty similar conclusion as C.M. CrabTree. I don’t want to give you the answers, because I want you to give her short, but power piece a read. But, I must say in life, period. We must choose wisely and peacefully  for the good of everyone, as well.

Meaning, if you stand up or speak up for something, sometimes no matter how good our intentions are, not everyone wants to see outside the box or ware used shoes. To further add to the title of her post, I’d like to say if you are purely being the best you, you are, it makes it  less difficult to disagree with a  kind, peaceful and honest person and I understand it’s also difficult at times, too.

Now, to Day Thirteen: Time to build a (better) blogroll. Check out the Zero to Hero main page for details and resources.
