Blogging 101: Say Hello to the Neighbors

Today’s assignment: follow five new topics in the Reader and five new blogs. A blog is just a diary unless there’s a community — start building yours.

First of, I would like to greet myself a “Happy anniversary!” Haha! It’s my second year anniversary in this company, and I honestly don’t like the feeling of being here for that long. It was exhausting. Every shift was very draining. It’s time to move on. I just hope I could find a job as soon as possible. Well, wish me luck!

Back to Blogging101…

Here were five topics I followed today and why I followed them:

1. Writing

Yes, this is a general keyword, and you hope I could’ve searched for something specific. However, it’ll be easier for me to find blogs I could read, with varying genre and literary type. When I checked some of the blogs today, some were about poetry, stories, book reviews, and many more.

2. Poetry

Something specific, right? I admit; I can easily relate to a poem than to a prose. It’s nice to see poets and their passion for poetry as they post their blogs. Looks like I will be a busy bee when I start checking out poems in here.

3. Short Stories

Another specific topic. Who would have thought that a romance novelist would follow blogs under short stories? Let’s just it’s easy for me to get inspiration to short stories than reading a novel. I could easily think of possible twist and turns in my plot as I check out stories, whatever its genre would be.

4. Baking

Unfortunately, I’m not a baker. It just happened that I want to learn, and i wish I could find blogs that could teach me how to.

5. Cooking

This is my current obsession. I am really addicted to cooking these days, and I know it’s time for me to get new recipes. I’m pretty sure bloggers have more ideas than recipe books out in the market. Heheh!

I’d like to spend more time checking out blogs before I follow them. For the mean time, let me share five blogs that I love visiting, though I never leave any message or sign that I was there. Hahah! (Now you know that I am a silent reader, fellas!)

1. The Last Reader

She was one of those bloggers who joined the BookBlogWriMo last November. I love how she writes her reviews, and how she creates her articles. I’ve been visiting her page from time to time, especially when I plan to buy another book.

2. Interesting Literature

A blog about everything and anything about literature. They even blog about history of words and author’s biographies. I bookmarked one of their post; the one about online resources to improve writing.

3. The Fickle Heartbeat

I love their tagline! The blog talks about different situations of love and relationships. I just wonder if the author was a teenager, or an adult who learned all those lessons based on his/her experience.

4. Romance Novels for the Beach

I mentioned that I was a romance novelist. Their post gives me ideas about steamy scenes, even if I know I still can’t write one properly. I’m getting some ideas from their post, especially if I’m starting to write another romance article.


The author is a very nice guy. I always look forward to read his post since I really learn something from it, especially when he talks about money.

So that’s it! I hope you’ll be able to find blogs that you’ll love, and I hope you’ll learn from them, too. Have a great day!
