Since today’s assignment for Blogging 101 is to change the blog title and headline, I am skipping today because I am quite content with the title I found so many years ago. This is my personal webspace, here I write about my thoughts and things I care about so it is my virtual heart and soul and it stays like that.
The Daily Post suggested to write about another topic instead but for personal reasons I really can’t concentrate today on writing anything. So see you tomorrow!
I didn’t get very far with my attempt to make a weekly post but since I would really like to get back into a writing habit I took the opportunity to register for a blogging “course” from the Daily Post. So beginning today starts Blogging 101.
Today’s assignment is: write and publish a “who I am and why I’m here” post.
So it begins…
I am a woman/girl/nerd in the beginning of my thirties. On this blog I publish random stuff which comes to my mind. As you can see it is still mostly in german so if you hate german, Germany or the Germans please leave 😉 I have studied English Literature but since I finished University I haven’t been using english actively very often and thus I am not very fluent anymore. So please bare with me. I am trying to get back into an english writing habit and am hoping that this course is helping me with this.
I have written in personal journals when I was a teenager until the beginning of my twenties I think but I’ve stopped doing so…for some reason that I really don’t know myself. I really enjoy reading the blogs of my friends or other persons who blog about their lives or interests and always wanted to do so myself but as it is, working hours and personal problems are the doom of any creativity. So here I am trying to bring back creativity into my life and collect my thoughts and some creative stuff on this blog for others to read if they like and of course for myself.
If you understand german you can see that I am roleplayer and often blog about the characters I am playing from their point of view. So if you are interested in that kind of thing and understand german please feel free to go to the “Charakterblogs” page on this blog. If you don’t understand any german – I am sorry! Perhaps when I am back to my secure english writing self after this course – as I hope I will be – I may start blogging for my roleplay characters in english. But I will decide this after the next 30 days.
So, this is a little bit about me and I am really looking forward to the next 30 days and to reading as many blogs of the participants in Blogging 101 as I am able to.
So this is me trying to do the Weekly Writing Challenge from The Daily Post . A project from WordPress.com to help bloggers to write / blog more and be creative. I came across the project via Julies Blog who did the Writing 101 challenge. So here I am trying to live up to the weekly challenge of blogging more and additionally training my english which I am rather ashamed of at the moment.
The week’s Weekly Wiriting Challenge is called The Ray Bradbury Noun List Twist . My nouns from the site’s list: The river. The thunderstorm. The red rose. The French pastry. The wedding. The tombstone.
We sat by the river
our river is flowing
and always growing
We sat amidst the roses
our red roses in bloom
and their perfume
We smiled under the sun
our hot sun of summer
and taking a slumber
We ate our french pastries
our precious delicacies
and sticky fingers
We danced at the wedding
our wedding full of love
and colourful laughs
I cried during the thunderstorm
the loud frightening thunderstorm
and feeling cold
I sit by the tombstone
your grim tombstone
next to the river
amidst the roses
under the sun
Uh! I have been tagged / awarded (how does one say this correctly?) by the lovely Julie on her englisch blog becoming a family for the Liebster-Award! I am really flattered 😀 I always love to read both of her blogs, one is in german, one in english. So I highly recommend reading them. You can find the links to both her blogs in the “Herzensmenschen” link-category on this page.
So here it is!
