When I look around me, it appears that everyone is in a relationship or getting married.  Except me.  Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not ‘woe is me’ or ‘desperately seeking someone’.  But I do get discouraged sometimes.

I’m 38 years old, soon to be 39.  Which means, 40 is knocking on my door.  And I live with my two adult brothers.  Yeah, I know.  I’ve had mtamekay share of relationships, even a few proposals (had to wisely decline them).  But never married.  I think about it more now because I’m getting older.  Will I ever get married?  If so, when?  If not, will the cats come to make me a cat lady?  Only God knows.

“Why I write” – Guest Post by Jo

Today, I have a lovely guest post written by Jo to share with you. Here, Jo is telling us about why she writes! I hope you enjoy this post, and please head over to her lovely blog after by here!


Hello! I’m Joana Sofia (but please call me Jo) and my little corner of the Internet is called “Darling, Oh My!” And today the lovely Jenny is allowing me to guest post on her blog. So, I’ve chosen to write about the reasons why I write.01

I write to clear my head. To leave space for new characters and new stories. I write. I write because writing is easier than speaking. The words come easier to me by holding a pen or having my fingers dancing in the keyboard. I write. I write so therefore I won’t explode. With emotions. I put down in a piece of paper what’s on my mind. Good or bad. I write it down. Most of the time I don’t even realize I’m doing it. Not the action itself. But the act of letting go.

The inspiration well, that comes everywhere. Those who know me know that I get inspired by everything. In a phrase read somewhere. In glances exchanged in the middle of nowhere. In strangers walking by. In songs I heard on the radio. Those who know me know I get inspired by a quote said by someone in a television show. In stories started by others but with wide opening endings leaving up to my imagination how that story would end. But what they don’t realize, what I myself sometimes don’t even do realize, it’s that I put into those characters, those that I create, a bit of myself. A bit of my past, of my present. My dreams for the future. Words that I could say out loud. But they came so easy I only notice when it’s all together. When all the pieces are put together. When I re-read the text that’s when it hits.

So, therefore I write. I write to escape. I write to dream. I write so I can keep my sanity sane. Emotions written out, lightness in my soul.


I really enjoyed reading this post written by Jo. Not only is she sharing with us the reason she writes, but she is also inspiring us to write. Well, she has certainly inspired me anyway! 🙂 Please remember to head over to Jo’s lovely blog – http://darlingohmy.blogspot.pt/
Lastly, I would like to say thank you so much to Jo for writing such a thoughtful guest post for my blog! 🙂 xxx

 

“A community I love being in” – Fab Guest Post by Stephanie

Today, I have a fabulous guest post by Stephanie to share with you. Here, Stephanie tells us about why she blogs, and why she loves  the blogging community! I hope you enjoy this post, and please head right over to Stephanie’s blog afterwards! 🙂

Guest Post by Stephanie

Why do I blog? It is something many people ask me when they find out I do. It is not a question I ever really know how to answer.

I wanted to connect with people I wanted to share what I knew and learn from others. I started to bug my work to set up a website a few years back and when they finally did I found that they yes were advertising what we had to offer but nothing more. I wanted to see a site put out there that had useful information and was interesting to visit.

Post Suggestion – Please read – Thank you :)

Mental illness is very common. Much more common than people think. There are many different causes of developing these disorders, and symptoms are different for everybody. There are so many different mental illnesses, which includes – anxiety, OCD, depression, phobia’s.

I am thinking about doing a post supporting mental health disorders, and raising awareness for it. I feel as though it doesn’t get as much attention as it should, and I want people to be able to understand it more.mental

I myself have an anxiety disorder, and trust me it is absolute hell. I don’t think people who have never had these disorders actually understand just how severe and painful (emotionally and physically) these disorders are for those who suffer from them.

Therefore, this post is merely just to get a sense of whether people think it would be a good idea, and would be interested in reading it? Obviously, I understand that for some it is a touchy subject, but I feel as though it doesn’t get enough attention, or awareness as it should.

If anybody who has a mental illness, such as depression, anxiety, OCD… anything, and would like to share their experience of it then please get in touch. In addition to the blog post I will write, I will more than happy to have a paragraph included, by each of you who would like to share a little bit about your disorder, and your coping mechanisms, or perhaps how it has changed your life.

Please comment/like this post/tweet me if you think it would be a good idea to do, and you would be interested in reading it. And again, please comment if you would be interested in featuring on the article (And if you have twitter then leave your username as it will be easier for me to contact you through there, probably!)

Many thanks, Jenny xox
