Looking for Guest Bloggers!

Try-this-Tuesday #2

GuestBloggers.fw_

When I started Bloguary I made a list of goals I want to achieve this year. One of those goals was to do a collaborative project with you. I wasn’t sure when would be the right time to start, but I might as well give it a shot.

So here’s what I had in mind:

When I started this blog, I wrote every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Every day had a different week theme and for a long time I kept writing five posts a week. Gradually, I stopped enjoying the writing process. I was forcing myself to write new posts to keep up with my schedule. It started to feel impossible and I started to get really stressed. Eventually, I decided to change things up. I would write when I felt inspired and started to enjoy my writing again. However, even though my schedule changed, the week themes stayed.

This is where all of you come in. Guest blogging is a big part of WordPress. Blogs invite other bloggers to write posts for their blogs. It’s a way to gain more followers and reach new audiences.

That’s why I want to invite you to become a Guest Blogger for Charlotte’s Corner. All you have to do is pick a week theme that you find interesting, write a post for that particular theme and send it my way. I will post it on Charlotte’s Corner and will share it with my readers.

(Of course I will link the posts to you blog and if you have Social Media, let me know so I can tag you when I share the posts on my own platforms. I use Facebook and Twitter! If you don’t have a blog, still feel free to join in on the fun!)

For example, you could write a post for the MoodyMondays, How-to-Tuesdays, True-or-False-Thursdays, or ShortSundays. To see all the week themes, just visit my blog and look for the menu on the right! Feel free to read the posts I’ve already written for all the themes, but you are also free to let your creativity run wild. You can even create a theme of your own if you want.

All you have to do is pick or create a weekday theme, write a funny, serious, intense, emotional, silly, or crazy post and send it to charlottescornerblog@gmail.com.

Some rules:

  • All entries need to be in English
  • I don’t mind cursing, but keep it classy
  • I will not post any offensive or insulting content (I will proofread all posts before they are posted on my blog)
  • Feel free to use your voice, just make sure you use it for good and not for evil!

I don’t know if anyone is even interested in being a Guest Blogger for Chatlotte’s Corner. Maybe no one will reply. I’m just trying this to see if anyone would like to share their poetry, short stories, silly life experiences, or inspirational lessons with me and my readers. And if it doesn’t work out, I will give it another shot some other time. I don’t give up easily!

I’m looking forward to all your replies!

Oh, and before I forget. If you would like me to check your spelling and grammar, I would be more than happy to. Just let me know when you send me your entry. My English is far from perfect, but if you would like a second opinion, I promise I will do my best.

Have a nice Tuesday!

Try-This-Tuesday #1

We live in a pretty insane world. Everything seems possible, but at the same time all we can see is limitations. We all have dreams, but only a few of us are actually able to accomplish them and even then we look at what others have. We never have enough. We always want more. That’s why this Tuesday we’re trying something new. I know that there are only a few of you reading this, but that’s not going to stop me. This Try-This-Tuesday let’s do something inspiring. Something to remind us what we have. It‘ll be a fun challenge.
Find a piece of paper preferably blank, but this is your challenge so do whatever feels right. It just has to be something that you can use to write down the answers to five questions. Write down your answers any way you like. Use different colored pencils, write from right to left, just have fun. I have some example answers to give your brain some ideas.

Question one: What is a childhood dream you’ve accomplished? It can be pretty much anything.
– Finally sleeping through the night without wetting your bed
– Buying that jump rope / action figure you just had to have
– Beating your siblings at Monopoly
– Getting an A in English
– Graduating High School
– Kissing that boy / girl you liked for so long

Question two: What is a childhood dream you had to let go of? Write down why as well.
– Becoming a Veterinarian. You realized you’re afraid of animals. They’re not as fluffy as your stuffed animals.
– Becoming a Ballerina. Too much training and discipline.
– Becoming a Butterfly. Apparently humans can’t become butterflies.
– Flying. Humans can’t do that either. It’s so stupid to be human.
– Marrying your teacher. Apparently he / she is already married.

Question three: What are the dreams you have yet to accomplish?
– Travelling the world
– Buy your own house
– Finding a job you actually like
– Get married and start a family
– Get drunk for the first time
– Get drunk for the second time
– Throw up because you got drunk
– Become a doctor
– Get a pet
– Be happy

Question four: What are your limitations?
– Fear
– Social anxiety
– Bad grades
– Other people telling you you can’t do it
– Doubts
– Insecurities
– Not enough money

Question five: What inspires you?
– My family
– My friends
– CatVideos on YouTube
– Fairytales
– Medical Miracles
– Music
– Literature
– Success

You did it! You just created your own dream-cloud. Here’s mine:

Click if you want to read my answers!

Right now you have a paper full of old dreams, accomplished dreams and new dreams. There are also limitations. Things that hold you back. These limitations are what’s stopping you from accomplishing your dreams. Get another pen and cross them off. Instead focus on the things that inspire you! Maybe give your inspirations some extra bold color. Again, this is your cloud! Do whatever you want. You’re your own person!
There are so many dreams you’ve already accomplished. Don’t ever forget that. These dreams came true, because you didn’t let the limitations hold you back. Every time you feel like you’ll never be able to make your dreams come true look at your dream-cloud. Remind yourself of all the things you’ve already accomplished. Remind yourself that dreams change and that the biggest limitation is YOU! Look at the things that inspire you and make sure they keep inspiring you. Keep looking for inspiration and you’ll realize that your dream-cloud will change. Some dreams may become old dreams, while others can be marked off as accomplished dreams! Just never stop dreaming.

Anyone else think this should’ve been a Thursday post? No, just me?

Have a nice Tuesday.
