#Instagram Moments On Monday- What Brings You #Passion 

Happy Monday everyone! I’ve been sickened with this god-awful illness of mines and still is for the last few days. If there are people who can roll out of bed, sick and tired and still work, then I can to. And if I can go to work in whatever condition I’m in, then I can pick up this small screen phone and work on my blog.

Okay, now that out the way. Today’s Instagram moments is about passion. This blog brings me passion like writing does to me. I once hated this blog, nothing was working, and I was severely frustrated. I had started this Instagram moments several weeks ago to share insights I’ve seen on the largely famous social media site.

For one, Instagram is annoying me. I’ve never seen so many fakes, Internet trolls, and people who lives for this stuff. No rants Monday, I just wanted to point that out. Secondly, it’s not working well for my blog when I posted them. Sometimes the Instagram image shows up and days it does not. That’s the thing about a blog, you try out what works and continue if it does or stop if it doesn’t.

Thank you for liking and commenting on these Instagram moments. I really do appreciate it.

Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Have Faith In What You Do

Hello everyone! I’ve been away for awhile taking care of life’s problems, with dealing with my health, and other things. Yesterday was a terrible day but now that’s out the way… I’ve mentioned in a post about my blogging goals for this year, you can find it here, which I’ve managed to complete. One of them at least.

It has taken me awhile to work it out since I didn’t quite understood how to copy or move a post to another page. So I went into my admin and worked on my menu. I ended up adding related posts to the Romance- Erotica Stories page. There, you will get a drop-down menu of stories, poems, and such. It is now available for viewing. Please go visit and tell me what you think. Some of you may have already seen the posts, but I will add new content later on.

I’m still doing edits in my book Secrets Unveil. I’ve went through a lot with this manuscript last year and back nine years ago when I first started writing it. At first I wasn’t ready to release it to the world, the feeling of sharing something you hold dear was downright scary. And, with the non support I would get from others before I was even finished then.

Have you ever had someone tell you that you writing a book is a waste of time or asking you why you want to write a book with violence, sex, and language throughout it? Many times I had, yet I put my book to the side, went back to it, back and forth. With it finished, so many times so, I cried tears of joy; now I’m brainstorming the sequel.

Whatever you do, wherever you are, do what makes you happy. I can’t stress that enough. I have some people in my family and friends who do not read, follow, or share my blog and its content or care to read my book, but it’s okay. I care and that’s all that matters.

And should not care if certain people don’t  share your hopes and dreams. One thing I know, someone does and they want to read your work.

Enjoy your day!

Instagram Moments On Monday- #Timing 

Today’s Instagram moments are from Mario Rodriquez Jr.

After going through Instagram, and bypassing many photos, I’ve landed on the ones below. I know I’ve mentioned before that I was going to include the picture of the person whose Instagram moments I’ve chosen, I had gotten away from that yet I’m back on it.

Timing is everything or so I believe. Nowadays if the timing isn’t right or if you’re aren’t in the right place, you can missed out on a great thing. Like last year for instance, I didn’t want to make any excuses so when I went back to school, I did so online on my tablet. Then went through writing and blogging courses on WordPress and finished my book all on my phone.

With so many bad kept happening,  a lot of good happened and placed me in the right place and with the right people to achieve greatness.

Blogging 101- Theme Change 

Happy Friday everyone! Today I woke up tired, yet my mind still active from last night of trying out new themes. It was quite a task I tell you!

My previous theme, Mystique, I had for about a year. The theme grew on me since the header kept giving me trouble. I had finally settled with the one before:

This is the desktop version viewed on my phone, like I’ve mentioned before, I do a lot of writing/blogging stuff via my phone. (I’m in works on getting a laptop. Fingers crossed.)

Last night, for today’s assignment, I’ve tried more themes. I really hate trying theme out since they are so tedious, but the end game is sweet. The Apostrophe theme, did not work well for me. It made me cry and took a lot away from my blog. Okay so I didn’t actually cry, but I was mad as heck.

I’ve settled for the Twenty-Eleven theme after getting bored with the Twenty-Sixteen theme. Here’s the new look:
Two header images are uploaded here because with this theme I have it set to randomized uploaded images. So as you navigate through the pages, the header image changes. Cool, huh? Yeah I know. You can always upload a new image, as many as you like, later on. I believe it looks okay.

What do you all think? Don’t hold back. Thanks!
