Visualise yourself in your favourite café. Take the time to recall the décor in detail, the aromatic smells of coffee and treats, the sun shining in, the murmur of patrons … just take a moment to close your eyes and recreate this cosy café where you feel so relaxed and comfortable. Now order up your favourite and settle into a comfy lounge chair to get acquainted with some new and old friends.
You came alone because you knew you could hang out here and meet some interesting like-minded characters. Some you may have met briefly before and others you may not have heard of. But we all have one essential trait in common … we are bloggers!
A peek at my regular blog would indicate that I prefer poetry and photography sharing it in my own amateurish way. But dang it altho I’m a very basic cook whose only real interested is to drool over tempting photos of recipes that I will never attempt I have met some delightful bloggers with exceptional cooking blogs. Along with plenty of travellers and ‘friends’ from all corners of the globe – why do we say that if the world is round? – who give me access to a plethora of exotic stories and photos of places, people, customs and architecture. And the joy goes on.
So please browse a while here as the interviews give a real insight into the bloggers personal life, how they got into blogging and what they’ve learnt. Best of all there will be several links connecting you to their most popular or favourite posts so that you can ‘taste’ for yourself.
Of course none of this is new as I’ve been seeing interviews with others since I started blogging eighteen months ago but they seem to get lost in the archives with our regular posts. So please help me pick them out and post links here to make a huge network or bloggers connection to sample just a fraction of the wealth that WordPress offers us?
Beware as I reserve the right to edit and altho requesting links I’m not drawn to budding blog entrepreneurs. But if it meets my rigorous approval then I’d love to reblog here with links back to your blog and the blogger interviewed … lets help the blogging world turn and become a closer family? Or get inspired to introduce another blog that you appreciate?
Started with my poems, photos and ideas on Arousedblog and have met so many fascinating people that I want to profile some in order to learn more about them. Writing about myself here can be quite daunting so I’m hoping to dig a little deeper and post some interesting profiles from amongst our cyber community. Or at least introduce some interesting blogs even if the shy authors prefer to avoid notoriety.
