Another Star in Blogland! Update!!

Sorry, I had put the wrong url to link to his blog. Please try it now.

For your reading pleasure, I am introducing a blog that I have been reading and enjoying.

This blog is about a young man's experiences of “life after college.” (And during college and before college…) His writing is fresh, brilliant, and funny. I asked him to describe his blog:

The Brantley Blog: In the eyes of the law, we reach adulthood the day we turn 18 years old. God help anyone who actually believes that. One guy's embarrassing tales of learning things the hard way on the way to becoming a grown up.”

In my opinon it is much more than that. His “Brantleyisms” (and disclaimers) are personal quotes drawn from his “young male living life” wisdom. His posts are a mixture of humor and his exploration of deeper thoughts. In his words, “I'm not exactly sure where blogging will take me. I just hope that it's somewhere just as enriching and enjoyable as the path I've traveled so far.”

Blogland Awards and Badges

For your pleasure, I will keep this short since this is my third post for the day. I really hate doing more than one a day.

But because I don't accept awards on my blogs and I know that it is a way to get people's blogs out there for other people to see; from now on, at the end of my posts, I will link blogs that either I follow or follow me so other people will see them and hopefully follow them if they are interest.

So please watch for future selections! Also, if you are reading this and would like your blog mentioned, or a friends's blog mentioned, please let me know in a comment and give me their URL.

Thanks family bloggers!

I Was Lost But Now I’m Found!

Day 3: What is on my mind?

Day 4: Exploring the Neighborhood

It must have been the second day of the http://zerotohero.wordpress.com challenge that I got lost. There wasn't a topic for us to write about that day so they told us to go to the Daily Prompt and use that topic. I did for that day, and the next day, and the next.. then I went back to the zerotohero challenge post and found out these were the topics that I should have been writing about. Please pardon me for my tardiness. (I was doing what I thought I was suppose to be doing but I was wrong). Now I am following the zerotohero blog which means I have been found or maybe.. they have been found?? Anyway, in this post, I am combining Day 3 and Day 4.

What Is On My Mind? Exploring the Neighborhood

When I started blogging on WordPress I wanted to connect with other writers and learn to write better. I wanted to share some of my life experiences because I believed it would help others in their journey through life. I believed that possibly my “wisdom” or my “lack of wisdom” would help others not make the same mistakes I did, of which caused me great misery. Also, I wanted to connect with others and learn from them. (I am finding that I am learning more from them they are learning from me).

When I joined the WordPress Community, I really had no idea what I was doing and began learning (and still am) from my mistakes and my successes. I had no idea how large this community is and I was delightfully surprized to find just how much I enjoy blogging and reading other bloggers' posts. I found this community to be a new “way of life” for me, and I really do enjoy it. I have met people that I do truly love now and feel like I have known them all my life. I am anxious to meet new people and read their posts.

The WordPress community is certainly a family for me and for many others. I feel like I am finding long lost brothers and sisters. It is wonderful!

I will be exploring my neighborhood and I hope to meet you!

 

Zero to Hero: Who Am I? (Good Question)

Good question! I am not even sure myself! Through blogging and writing I hope to be able to finally anwer that question, but I certainly will need all the help I can get.

I am taking part of the Zero to Hero Challenge with WordPress Daily Post. The Daily Post Zero to Hero: 30 Days to a Better Blog.

Our first assignment is to tell our readers Who We Are. Therefore, I am going to try and tell you who I am and what my blog is about.

My internet name of Priceless Joy came after many years of mental anquish and hell. Evolution from that excruciating time in my life to finally being able to experience joy, was priceless. Therefore, my internet name, Priceless Joy.

I am still evolving as far as my self esteem and confidence and still have a long way to go. Hopefully, this challenge with WordPress will help me grow and evolve into that type of writer that readers want to rush to and read and devour.

I hope to be a light to those who are experiencing darkness – the kind which I experienced many years ago.

I hope to be an inspiration to those who need inspiration and encouragement in their life journey.

I hope to be a friend to those who need friendship and a blessing to those who need a blessing.

I hope to write about my experiences and bear my soul to my readers.

I hope to flourish in my writing abilities and be brave enough to “undress” (so to speak) my writing regarding my life and my experiences.

I hope to be able to write posts that are entertaining and funny, but also have meaning.

I hope to get to a point where I can encourage others to “let their light shine” too.

Once again, I hope to gain self esteem and rid myself of all my insecurities and inhibitions. (When I think about my writing being open to anyone in the world to read, I freeze! (Yes, I freeze solid!) So, hopefully, this challenge will help me warm up to this terrifying thought.

At this moment in time I feel like a deer in the headlights. Thus, I leave all of you very lovely people with one word… H E L P!!
