May I pick your brain?

Do you guys have facebook pages to go with your blog? I recently started a facebook community to accompany TheGoodStory blog. Really nice cause not everybody likes getting a full inbox from following blogs. The only thing is that my facebook page is getting many likes and follows (jeej) but the visitors stats of the actual blog are not increasing. Does anyone have experience with this? How to motivate people to actually visit the blog instead of just hitting the Thumbs Up? Thanks 😀

Live Before You’re Afraid To Die!

Would she ever have imagined this?

Quietly, patiently waiting for falling leaves,

A passion that consumes cannot last;

Not ahead, not behind, come beside!

After all, a dream is only an illusion;

Loathe thee loathing and not the person;

 

Was happy, then I wanted more!

I am Baked Alaska, cold inside.

I just want to feel loved;

She could not believe her eyes…

Pumpkin coffee, autumn leaves, sapphire sky;

Beautiful connections with strangers you meet!

 

Crash, Splash the world fell down,

Blanket the cold feed the poor!

Every time we meet, he smiles,

Embracing change is scary and exciting!

Love? No. Only delusions. Chasing illusions.

 

Ceaseless wonders reopen the mind’s eye!

Her’s wasn’t a happily ever after!

Final Call For The Poetry Corner Five!

Hello Friends 🙂

We have received 33 entries so far. Thanks to everyone who sent their entries. Stay tuned. We will publish our poem tomorrow!

Please send your 6 words(poem/story) to my mail : thinkerv0@gmail.com

Anyone who wants to publish this poem on their blog is free to do so 🙂 I think it has been clear since beginning but I am saying it again for anyone who hesitates. 🙂

If we consider this a match with the past week–we are two points behind. I feel we can either tie or surpass last week’s tally if some of you help. It should not take more than 5 minutes to send 6 words that pop in your head, in form of a story or poem, but it will surely add more quality, more colors to our event. 🙂

It’s A Wonderful Life After All!

It’s  a wonderful life after all! 

Prayer changes my point of view;

Golden, rare, opportunity, where are you? 

Twigs crushed, table twisted, life begins,

It is sad that summer is over,

 

Images sprung out of my hands endlessly,

How can I keep this secret!

Breath of life, stench of death;

This is how it is, pal!

 

Empty suitcase, where do I begin?

Losing someone I never really had,

Love, sky, movies, mother, barbecue, wallflower;

Leaves fall, colors change, life evolves,

Poetry Corner Invites!

Hello Friends 🙂
#weekly #poetrycorner
Now this does sound like an advertisement and advertisement it is.

Why am I doing this everyday?

Because I feel it has the potential to become the best poem in the blogosphere. We can work to make it the best event in our neighborhood.

For those who are not familiar with it. :
It’s a group poem with anonymous contributions.

To get a taste: Please look at this week’s poem. We publish it here in Alumni. I am sharing with you the one I published in my blog with picture. You can also publish this group poem if you wish.

A Broken Bridge!

Why so?

Because so many minds working together, without any particular theme, create so many sparks that a bright burning flame of creativity lightens up our forum.

 

I already have 15 entries. Rich gets richer. So I cordially invite you to give your entry. All you have to do is:

Please send your 6 words to thinkerv0@gmail.com 

Please keep the subject line “poetry corner.” Even if you don’t it’s perfectly alright. 🙂

 

We are going to publish the poem on Tuesday so it’s a lot of fun and excitement as it gets bigger day by day. Please participate. 🙂

Congratulations! 400 Posts and 150 Authors!

Hello Friends 🙂

It’s a great joy to tell you that our forum now has more than 400 posts and 150 authors. 🙂

Garth’s ( @garthmr ) today’s Weekly Feature post was 400th post. Cheers!!

And Traci Druray (@tradru) is our 150th author on this forum. Welcome Traci 🙂

When we were planning on creating this forum, I said to Kristina ( @kristinavanhoos ) that I will be glad if there are 15 members. Now, it’s not even a month since forum took-off and we already have 150 members!! 🙂

I feel celebration should be a part of life and we should keep celebrating every day–a little! It keeps us motivated. 🙂

I heartily thank all admins, volunteers and authors for making this happen ❤ ❤ ❤

What begins comes to an end too. It's inevitable. Still I hope this forum will keep giving a little happiness, guidance and support to many of us in days to come. As long as possible 🙂

I might not be here for very long as I always have a foot in pilgrimage. 🙂

Still, I am sure that beautiful admins, volunteers and members will keep this place up and running and it will be a source of delight for many of us. 🙂

I wish you all a lot of bliss, peace and light. 🙂

Cheers and congratulations 🙂 ❤

Anand 🙂
