“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

“If I was rich…” – Guest Post by Lauren

Today, I have a wonderful guest post to share with you, written by Lauren. Here, Lauren is telling us about what she would do if she was rich. Hope you enjoy her post, and remember to go and check out her lovely blog here!


If I was rich … like GAZILLIONAIRE RICH.. I would: 

 

1. Find an amazing Island and buy it. It has to be white sand, with a clear turquoise sea which has pink dolphins, whales and other beautiful fish swimming in it. There must be palm trees circling my amazing Mansion in the centre. I will have Apes being free to run, climb and jump around eating bananas; I would teach them to talk so they can tell me how pretty I am every single day.

 

2. Buy the most expensive, most amazing, most gorgeous car ever created and grind against it until the paint job comes off, pay it to be repainted and grind all over again because I would be so in love with it.

 

3. Swim naked in my own ocean (yes, I would own an ocean, predator free) 

 

4. Sky dive with Robert Downey Jnr…naked…? Ha joking! In a bikini because then we would land on my Island and sunbath together, whilst sipping cocktails and having my Butler (Ryan Gosling) wait on us…. topless of course. Continue reading

“An insight to my blog” – Guest Post by Dorey

Today, I have a great guest post written by Dorey to share with you. Here, Dorey is giving you a brief insight into her blog, and sharing an extract from a post of hers with you! Hope you enjoy reading it, and be sure to check out her blog afterwards – here!


So I saw the opportunity to be able to reach a wider audience by doing a guest blog. So hello there fellow bloggers. 

I just wanted to give a little insight into my blog. I blog about anything and everything, from visiting the gym to discussing the annoying kids on the train.  I’m also in the first year of living with my Boyfriend which is a first for me and I like the idea of documenting our lives together (the good and the bad)
 
He is bugging me to read this blog and I’ve been denying him access as some of the stuff is very personal which is crazy as you guys are strangers and you know some inner thoughts that I could never tell anyone. But I like that! Plus I can bitch and vent about him occasionally! Hahaha so keep it between us!!! :))
 So here is an extract from my blog. Check it out I’m just starting out… But I’m loving it I hope you do too!!! Enjoy! 😉
