Care to introduce yourselves?

Hi Hi Hi!

I’ll be honest, I’ve made a terrible time of actually getting to know people who come to my blog and read my blog and I want to change that. I want to be better! I was wondering, if you’re a reader of my blog, if you’d be willing to introduce yourself?

If you’re up for it, can you please tell me:

  1. Your name
  2. The country in which you live
  3. What you like to blog about?

I would love to start a thread of this, to have a place on my blog to share who people are and what they blog about… a place people can come to find new blogs… so to speak. I selfishly would love to read all of your responses to see the diversity among all of the bloggers who respond.

I also think that, if enough people responded, perhaps I could stick a link to the top of my page so that people could use it as a means to find new blogs they’re interested in following when they’re looking.

And me, I’m always interested in finding new blogs to follow.

So please, if you’re willing, say hello! Share your name, the country you live in and what you like to blog about most.

Thank you for reading (and for any response you decide to provide)!

*Update: If your blog is set to private please remember that people won’t be able to see it, and I won’t be able to follow it.

xox, Vee

  3. My name is Ash. I exist in the US. I run @ashentrouble, which is about my mental health issues and status as a closeted pansexual transboy in love with his best friend. I’m trying to get back into writing since life kind of took over for the past three or four months.

    1. Hey Ash, it sounds like you’ve got a lot to deal with in your life. I look forward to seeing more of what you’ve got to say because I always appreciate hearing what life is like from a different perspective.

  4. Thank you Vee, for creating such a wonderful platform, delighted to meet other wonderful blogger.
    This is Anubhuti here, an Indian currently living in Japan. I always look forward for your new post, there are so much to learn. Although, I have created very few post, I love to write about my personal observation about life, travel experience, food experience (because I love to cook and eat) and sometime I add poetry too.
    I am thankful for the entire blogger community, you all inspires me to create something worth reading and I am trying.
    I have a dream to visit every hooks and corners in the world and finally settle in a hill station, open a library (charity) and a coffee shop. So, that people can visit, read, discuss with a cup of coffee in their hand.

  5. Hello, my name is Fatima-Ezzahra and I’m from Morocco.
    I initially started my blog to write about social issues in Morocco. I wouldn’t say that I do that lol because our issues need a lot of thinking and analyzing to be discussed and I didn’t have enough time because of my studies. So instead, I write about anything. I write about feelings and relationships and music. I did write about a Moroccan rape issue once, but I will definitely write more about that now that I graduated uni.
    I hope you check out my blog and comment on any post you like and also give me feedback.
    Thank you.

  6. Hi. I’m Xara Nahara O’Connor, and I am the torturous housekeeper who likes causing pain and suffering to everyone around me, especially Joe the Walrus (my husband), Jasper (Mr. Thor the Appliance Beater), and the biggest asshole on the planet named Peter W. Parker.

    I live in Georgia, United States. A lot of my stories make fun of this place. I am wishy-washy about whether I want to leave and never come back.

    Generally, I blog about life, art, and poetry, but lately, I’m sharing some of my surreal stories to torment Joe the Walrus, Mr. Thor the Appliance Beater, and Peter W Asshole.

  7. Hi! I’ve actually never read any of your blog before, but you liked one of my posts so I jumped over to take a look. Sweet! Thanks for doing this! Definitely going to give you a follow, and a few others on this thread, as well.

    I’m Suzanne and I live in Portland, Oregon. I write about dating and romance, travel …and a fair bit about depression and anxiety and how they impact the dating and the travel. 😄

  10. Hello Vee. I am Tom (TJ, yes it does stand for Thomas Jefferson) Darby. I live in the United States, primarily in remote Appalachia, though I am known to surface in other places at times. What do I like to blog about……hmmm

    Well, one might conclude that I am chiefly a poet. I consider myself an accidental poet. I am an unrepentant satirist and an acerbic observer of society. I am an avowed anarchist. Not a bomb throwing variety, I simply am a firm believer that while there may be a need for rules there is no need for “rulers”. Rulers are as worthless as tits on a bull. Perhaps better described as an anti-statist.

    Thank you for your like on my posting today. This is a good idea, the introduce yourself tab. I’ll be following you and hope you might do the same. The Ale 81 Inn features frequent poems at the poets page, gonzo journalism at Doom and Reprisal, short stories at Hell’s Chronicles and…….whatever else we decide to throw up.

    I am not a millennial but I have kids that belong to this generation. Like you, they want to travel and eat amazing food (but mostly the latter). It’s an observation that millennials are mostly free-spirited and expressed always what they feel with conviction.

    I like the way you weave words. You have a lovely blog. Can you make the font a little larger though? For someone from Generation X, visual acuity is a concern ha ha

  18. Hello! My name is Hettie, and I am from Illinois (Chicago and the suburbs). Like some other people, I’ve checked out your blog because you’ve liked one of my posts. You sound like a lovely personality, and also you somehow resemble my audience from my previous blogging platform. Until recently, I’ve used WordPress only for my professional blogging, but about two months ago, I started to migrate my personal life to this platform, as well. More about “what I am about” at https://wordpress.com/view/hettie.family

    1. Which do you prefer, blogging about professional subjects or blogging about your personal self?

      Also, personal question but is Hettie short for Henrietta? I have a friend named Henrietta and we call her Hetty.

      1. I prefer all of the above :), that’s why I have three active blogs! By the way, the one you’ve subscribed to is the fourth one, which is empty :), I’ve started it a long time ago and then removed the contents. I think you’d like to subscribe to Hettie’s reflections, which is located at hettie.family unless you want to know about the information management :). But I think that you’d rather enjoy the stories about beautiful moments of life, and maybe about my past, how I’ve overcome lots of troubles and really horrible things in my life.

  22. Hi V, this is a brilliant idea, a luscious smorgasbord of lives to peruse. My name is Jeni. I’m Australian by birth but I have become a nomad by nature. Two years in Europe, so far and no home to return to. I’m on an adventure and loving it! My blog is: https://wordpress.com/view/wildartwanderer.travel.blog and I have no idea why I can’t hyperlink it, apart from the fact that would probably be rude. I also admit to writing prose and posting naked self-portraits and these are found at https://wordpress.com/view/jenimcmillan.wordpress.com

    Keep up your great posts! Jeni

  24. Hi Vee! My name is Tanja and I live in New York, USA, but have dual citizenship with Norway. I started a new blog just a few weeks ago, which focuses on being single, living alone and traveling solo for the first time in my life. I struggle with loneliness and wanted to find something therapeutic to help me deal with it, in addition to other things I’m trying. I’ve been to Norway countless times, it’s familiar and comfortable to me, because I have family and friends there, but I want to break out of my comfort zone and start travelling to other countries. Unfortunately, I don’t have a travel companion, which always makes it nicer and safer, so I’m doing it alone, starting with Ireland in September!

    Thank you for sharing all your blogs…I can relate to many of them! Thank you for reading my latest one, as well 🙂
