Rawr! Every bit of support matters

it takes a dinosaur to blow the warmth of love,

whisper a lullaby to make souls cherish the joy

of this day, marked with words that resonate

from within the heart, and felt by all the hearts,

beating not synchronized, but still melodious,

unbound and yet adjoined even in distance

like the scales of ‘saur, and thus we must rawr

when she speaks of her hurt, all in there that

never overshadowed her hopeful anecdotes

of life, living and trying out hard to be the one

you are, and thus we must rawr, all rawr now

to give voice to her voice and use that coin

of support which scintillates solicitude when used

.

Many of you must know Rarasaur, the ever wonderful blogger and story-teller. Her lively personality shines through wherever she takes a turn paving the way for blogger interaction.

She is a dinosaur. And she and her husband need our support today when they are confronting  a difficult situation in their life. I hope you would try to support them even in the littlest way possible. Because every bit of support matters. Please visit Rarasaur’s site and her husband, Grayson’s site to give them your kind support. You can make the Donations(Financial/Food) here:  TheQueenCreative.com/thank-you. Also, you can spread the word so that others could also help/support them in some way.

the tree of blogging-

we hold onto each other

leaves, twigs and care

The blogging community is much like a tree and we are the various leaves and twigs and we are branched together by our friendships, communications, genuine care and support for each other.

To all my readers, You matter.

I am linking this post with dVerse Poetics and I have completely transformed my writing space/blog/site, about which you can read in my previous post: Changes. I’d once again like to remind you that you can help Rarasaur and her husband by going to the aforementioned links and by spreading the word. Thank you.

Changes

Change is a part of life.

Isn’t that true? And that becomes even more true when we think about our ways of socializing, sharing our work and communicating with others. We change, our ways change and that brings a change in the product that we produce.

That is what has happened with this blog. If you think you have come to some unknown space where you don’t know the person behind the words, I’d make it clear that it is I, Anmol, your HA, and I have transformed this significant component of my life as I begin to take new steps in this world. My journey began as HowAnxious and that would always be attached with me and that is why, the blog address remains the same. But now I am welcoming you to enter a new area which is my place: HA’s place, for sharing, communicating, writing, thinking out loud and just plain musing.

I am enthusiastic about it because there are going to be many changes that I’d like to experience with you, as I try out new things and add some spark to the old ones to bring out a rejuvenated effort on my part and your support that being the only thing which would help me course through it.

Some new changes for your consideration:

  • A New Introductory Page: This is Me! (The name stays the same but it is too different to make you remember of the past page).
  • A New Category: Where I felt the Love, in which I have included some of your favorite posts by me, where I was sincerely touched by your feedback and your wondrous words.
  • A New Theme With A New Look, so as to make the blogging environment more reader friendly and including such aspects which would strengthen our bond.
  • A Random Post Generator Button, which you will find on the left hand side of the page, so that with a click, you can reach a randomly generated post from the past and help me revive the magic of days gone by to add into the colors of today.

There are certain more changes to come, which will appear in due time. Your feedback is much appreciated. Do tell me, what do you think of the transformation? Or just say hello to me. I have a new policy of replying to almost all the comments that I receive and I am going to adhere to that seriously.

Thank You.

Republish: Right2Write Prompt 7: Flowers and Cattle

Hey,

There were no entries for this prompt, which I posted last week. Instead of devising a new prompt, I would like to republish it in hopes that some one would get inspired by the photograph and write something, submitting it to the linking widget.

And if there would be no entries, I would be shutting down the prompt because it has no meaning without the participants. Have a good day!

I have taken permission from a fellow photography blogger who pictures the beautiful land of Arkansas. His blog is named, guess what, under the skies of Arkansas. Please give him a visit; I promise you would be enraptured by his amazing skills.

I had asked him to use a photograph named Flowers and Cattle for this week’s visual prompt and he allowed me to do so. So here is the photograph:

Certain guidelines:-

1. You have to write a poem or a short story, inspired from this photograph.

2. Please do include the photograph in your post, crediting it correctly by linking back to the photographer’s website.

3. Submit your link to the linking widget below. You can submit multiple links if you want.

4. Please try to visit the submissions of other participants. And let other bloggers know about the prompt, so that they can also participate.

Have a good time, flexing your creative muscles.

2nd Blog Anniversary

ann

Last night, I got a message from WordPress, informing me that it has been two years that I registered on WordPress. Wow! That is such a brilliant feeling. I remember that first night faintly; I know I wrote up my first post that day which was quite absurd, which many of my posts still are. And I updated my introduction page that day and it is the same as what you see as the first paragraph in my ‘This is me’ page. I haven’t changed it but updated it twice, depending on the situations prevailing in my life.

But I am so happy to be a part of WordPress community. These two years have just flown away like that. Sometimes it feels as if I started just yesterday, while at other times it is as if I have been blogging since forever.

The truth is this blogging domain saw the major change in my life as I lost my path and went downhill. It had seen those days when I tried to make a decision of the path I want to step on, once I had lost my original one. I have shared such posts on this blog, which you would not want to read… which I would not want to read ever again. I don’t want myself to lead to that situation again.

This blog has seen me through the times when I was estranged from life to the time when I accepted its presence and it all went bad for me… this blog has seen me through my battles and struggles against an evil, which still comes forth to dominate me from time to time… but this blog has also seen me take my writing seriously, spreading my words all around and be the person who I am today. May be I do not accept myself.. I do not like what is going on with me… but the WordPress community has always supported me.

I have had so many bloggers who had come in my life through this domain and leave it as well. I miss them for their support but I know that is wrong on my part. They did all what they could do for me. I am thankful to all of them.

Now before you get tired of my sentiments, I must say I adore you all. You all are special to me. And I hope I have been or I will be able to make my presence felt.. even a little bit of it, in your hearts.

One Lovely Blog Award

Hello,

I have been nominated for “One Lovely Blog Award” by Portia who is a beautiful person and a wonderful blogger. It seems we have something in relation- I was her first real reader and hers was the first blog I started following on wordpress. It is cool, isn’t it?

Well, what are you waiting for? Go and visit her blog this very second and don’t forget to follow her. Right?

Well, the rules for this particular award are-

1. Give credit to the awesome person who nominated you.

2. Describe 7 things about yourself.

3. Nominate 15 other bloggers.

Here are the 7 things about me-

1. I’m more of a loner but still I feel lonely a lot many times.

2. I myself think that there is something wrong with my mind.

3. I have recently realized that I feel better when I’m sad than when I’m happy.

4. I really don’t know how to start a small talk with anyone.

5. I am a socially awkward person.

6. I have kept all my childhood toys in a safe closet away from the sight of my parents.

7. I’m quite a hopeless person because I get bored very easily and I even retreat my steps back all of a sudden when I’m on a path of doing something.

Since, I am not actively following many bloggers nowadays because of a little upheaval in my personal life. Here are the bloggers I would like to nominate for this very award-

1. http://worldlywinds.com/ but unfortunately, she is no longer accepting any awards.

2. http://emilyjanuary.wordpress.com/

3. http://timzauto.wordpress.com/
