As a writer cum blogger, we all know how much effort and time it takes to craft your words, curate your images, tag, categorize, primp, polish and publish courageously, only for you to sit back satisfied, twiddling your thumbs anticipating a deluge of comments from expected readers, but, gasp and with a lump in your throat, no one hits that like button or even leaves a smiley face behind. It could dampen anyone’s enthusiasm.

The situation is tougher when you are just starting out with your blogging or writing passion and you need that validation that comes from others – of course, your few good buddies and mom would probably support you, woe betide them if they don’t, but we all do need that extra validation because we are social beings, so spare yourself the rhetoric of ‘I’m writing for myself,’ and let’s get to the cause.

Today’s featured blogs posts are:

Us and them, my reality shift: Thought provoking article. One of the statements that gave made me pause is:

The “Us and Them” verse refers to how groups (tribes) of humans can be cruel to one another, but as individuals we like to think we would not act this way.

Techno kids: today’s babies know more than you and I about these techie gadgets. Are there any controls?

Fry – day fun: Each day I learn something new and today I learnt about ISTP from this article. An interesting summation. Maybe you can relate.

The time tonight: a lovely read that might tempt to either pen a poem or go to bed 😉

Sink or swim, that’s the question: What’s your choice? Each day we have to make a decision.

Do step in and show some love.

I hear the reverberations of the magic that’s hidden within.

Support Me.

Will this become mundane?

Mundane Monday Challenge is created to find beauty in almost everything.

The challenge is simple : find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs.

The two exhibits are not mundane objects in the least. Possibly, they are objects of fantasy for some people, but what drew my attention is the fact that they are electrically charged, therefore they are supposed to be eco-friendly.

I can’t very well say that I understand the technology, but having been inside one of the eco-friendly taxis in Dubai, I asked the driver how it is compared to the fuel driven car, he was full of accolades.

If this will reduce the fossil fuel burning, excavation, pollution and corrupt practices that has been associated with crude oil and gas, then this might just be the way to go in the near future.

I hope that they actually become ordinary.

She is amazing at describing love and life in her poems. She creates such beautiful images with her words. Truly, she is a talented writer and I’m so excited to have her poetry book and to continue reading through it.

With the advent of online hot news off the press, reading of traditional papers seems to have taken the back burner, but I still enjoy the crinkle of regular newspapers and poring over it at my own time and also enjoying the funnies and doing the crossword puzzles.

Online news just never feels the same to me. Do  you still read the newspaper?

Yesterday, I had to get some bloodwork done at the hospital and despite not feeling my usual stellar self, my sense of observation did not leave me.

I watched the men in the photo walk past me, both scrolling through their phones and paying a little less attention to where they were headed.

Like a poorly written script, they missed the bold caution sign on the floor outlining the step down leading outside and the wheeled in chap took a bad tumble.

I presume he must have twisted something because his friend had to help him up, then got a wheelchair and brought him back inside.

The phone fascination is becoming a worrying trend.

I absolutely love this book of poems. My favorites are “Love Rations” (for those who love to give the silent treatment) and “Beggars Supper” (which definitely pulls at the heart strings). Two thumbs up!!
