Blogging 101: Day 1

Day One: Introduce Yourself to the World

Today’s assignment: write and publish a “who I am and why I’m here” post on your blog: https://anempathicpoet.wordpress.com

What are you about?

I like to think I’m about helping others know that they are not alone. We are all human subjected to trials and tribulations regardless of who we are. In one way or another, we all have experienced love, loss, grief, betrayal, and self-esteem issues as well as other things that aren’t new under the Sun. I find it easier to interpret and cope with my personal endeavors through [mainly] poetry.

Why should they read your blog?
It helps you focus your ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

People should read my blog because they could gain insight on someone’s views that aren’t filtered or deprived of any emotions. I let them know that it’s okay to come out of the shadows and acknowledge the pain and suffering as well as the joy and love that comes from honesty and support. I call my followers “my fallen angels” as a way to ensure that we all have our crosses to bare and I’m not afraid to talk about mine. No one else should be afraid either.

Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?

Because of my past, I tend to isolate and stay within my comfort zone. Blogging publicly allows me to share my thoughts and writing prowess with the online community without the social anxiety that occurs when I’m in the real world.

What topics do you think you’ll write about?

My blog started back in March of 2015 so I already established my essential theme of my blog already. I advertise my published eBooks, share my poetry, experiment with writing archetypal short stories, and write my weekly rants about my personal life. I aim to have my followers relate to me and me to them.

Who would you love to connect with via your blog?

I would love to connect to talk show hosts and make friends with prestigious authors. As of now, I have been well acquainted with a lot of other bloggers already but it never hurts to befriend more intelligent and literate people I can have things in common with.

If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

I would hope to have accomplished more eBook sales, more likes, comments, and followers, and to meet new people. Although I struggle with loneliness, blogging makes me realize that I’m not the only one going through stuff. So all in all, connecting and networking with like-minded people is my top priority.

Truth Serum

When I was 6,

I wished I was a newborn,

When all I worried about was eating, sleeping,

And excreting waste,

 

When I was 10,

I wished I was 6,

When all I was afraid of was going to grade school for the first time

And missing my mom until I returned home,

 

When I was 14,

I wished I was 10,

When all I thought about were the terrifying times I spent alone with my stepdad

And missing my mom until she returned home,

 

When I was 18,

I wished I was 14,

When all I reminisced about was how I secretly enjoyed being abused like a masochist

And missing the only sexual escapade I had throughout my school years,

 

When I was 21,

I wished I was 18,

When I was forced to be exiled because my mom thought my dad’s replacement made me gay

And hoping there was more to life than this,

 

When I am 30,

I will wish I was 21,

When all I can recall will be how my ex-fiance severely broke my heart

And how he wonderfully psychologically tormented me,

 

When I am 39,

I will wish I was 30,

When I’ll realize that I am the same age as when my first love left in peace

And left me in pieces,

 

When I am 50,

I will wish I was 39,

When I can remember fondly how agile and resilient I once was

And wondering how I didn’t kill myself a lot sooner

 

When I am 69,

I will not look back anymore,

For dementia will consume my mind’s occupancy leaving behind the fact that my age will be one of my favorite sexual positions

And in total relief that I will die any day now

FREE BOOK PROMOTION!

Hello to my lucky fallen angels! I vowed to myself that I would advertise my book every once in a while on my official blog. And that’s what I’m doing now. From August 14th to August 16th, you can download my first novel, The Pandemonium Chronicles: The Merge between Heaven and Hell, for FREE on Amazon Kindle in eBook format!

* https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B012BSPFCQ/ref=abs_add_sc_?smid=A3T7DQBB0CKEM6 *

A little synopsis to clear the air:

Originally published in March 20, 2013 by Xlibris Publishing, The Pandemonium Chronicles: The Merge between Heaven and Hell is a novel based in the future. The setting is a post-apocalyptic world where demons have taken over Earth. John Stevenson and the Heaven’s Angels must save Earth as well as the rest of existence. The Pandemonium Gem, or the source of evil, is the only thing keeping the balance between good and evil stable. The angels want to destroy it to eliminate Hell while the demons want to enhance its abilities to eliminate Heaven from existence. Little does anyone know that existence needs both Heaven and Hell to sustain itself.

Have a wonderful day and good luck on your personal endeavors! Over and out.

Finally republished!

“Hey everybody!” said Dr. Nick. Lol How are my fallen angels doing on this glorious day today? One of my fellow bloggers took some time out of her day to explain to me just how easy it is to publish an eBook for free. I have part one and half of part two in my flashdrive and created a cover based on the original cover. Technically, I already wrote parts two and three and actually began part four. But I only handwrote them. Typing them has been kinda tedious lately but I gotta do what I gotta do. I used Kindle Direct Publishing. When I am near a desktop computer again, I’m going to publish it on draft2digital too. But for right now, please buy The Pandemonium Chronicles: The Merge between Heaven and Hell on eBook format for only $2.99! http://www.amazon.com/dp/B012BSPFCQ/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_awdm_EgmSvb1FDR2EB I’ll also have this link in my dropdown menu soon enough. This is my 99th post. I’m thinking I should write something spectacular for my 100th post tomorrow. Any suggestions? Well my busy day is going to start now but I hope you all have a wonderful day! Over and out.
