I am forever grateful to blogging and the many other writers and readers for welcoming me into a vibrant world of blogging. Blogging thawed out my writing skills.

Before I started blogging, I closeted myself in a room to sit down and write. Then, I froze. I considered writing to be a solitary craft but looking at a blank screen or talking into thin air was a sterile exercise in futility for me. I could not translate the same creative energy that I experienced telling a story verbally to the keyboard. My intuitive, imaginative side stayed buried and my logical intellect wrote boring drivel.

Somehow I heard about the existence of blogs, blogging sites and blogging directories and I snapped to attention. Suddenly, I was thinking up a username, a title for a blog, looking at templates and design and layout. All these activities loosened up my creativity while I sat typing

It was like an invisible barrier slowly melted, allowing my imagination to bubble up in a stream of written words that felt just as exhilarating as my oral tradition. I was excited to start sharing written stories with other people, people who would read them, respond, comment and give me feed back on what I had written. Within weeks, I was no longer an island but part of a community of other writers who had the very same insecurities and problems as I did.

So a salute to a fraction of the bloggers who helped me.

  1. I still remember the time when you asked me about Daily Prompt how does it work: And my response was “think of it as a game. It’s fun”. I am so glad, Melanie that you are now in full force and using your God’s gift in bringing the goodness bestowed upon you. Have a blessed Sunday and keep on evangelizing. Seeker.

      1. Nevertheless, your “speech” or “confession” is still very excellent, oozing with your personal journey into the world of blogosphere, resulting in the blosoming of your creative side and nurturing quality.
