Facebook Resolve

So I have been ‘working’ on my fb page as of late and giving the social networking some love and attention.  My facebook page has been growing slowly but surely and I have enjoyed all of the wonderful pages, images and blogs that I have stumbled across over the past few days.  ( you can join me on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/writingsofamrsjennifer?ref=hl , head on over and hit like, you can receive snippets into my life there along with all of my blog posts )

My face book page was mentioned in an article posted earlier this week by Joy Findley that features Zee Southcombe and she discusses social networking and blogging that you can take a look at here if you’d like :

This morning was by far my most favorable day on facebook when I happened upon a blog post entitled Resolve by Mostly True Stuff.

Isn’t resolve such a fantastic word?

The resolve of the human spirit has always been a fascination of mine and this post puts it all into such beautiful, raw, real and compelling words.

If you have a moment please check out her blog post.  I promise that you won’t be disappointed.

Pay it Forward Thursday: PAY DAY Christina Jones and Newsletters

So I had a collaboration booked for this week with We Drink Because we’re Poets but something came up with on their end so the collaboration was unable to happen but watch for it in the upcoming months!

Stuck in a short time crunch and wanting to help some one on my Pay Day Thursday I thought it a great opportunity to introduce you all to Christina Jones.

Christina approached me recently asking to interview me for her upcoming news letter and I agreed.

The interview will be available in July and you if you are interested in learning more about me and my journey to becoming the blogger that I am today please sign up for her newsletter to read the interview.  I asked Christina about the process of developing a newsletter as I do not have one for my blog and it is something that I am interested in doing.

Given the free block of time I felt it a great opportunity to give Christina some exposure and to interview her as well.

Finding images to use on your blog can help or hamper your blogging goals

Hi everyone.

I just want to take a moment to share some very helpful information that I came across recently.

I had an issue with using a copyrighted image with out proper permission.  I by no means did this intentionally as I am sure many others have done but it was brought to my attention when the photographer approached me.

The issue was resolved simply but I felt terribly about it afterwards especially considering how important I feel it is to respect others work. Continue reading

I would like to thank everyone for their submissions and great pieces of writing both prose and poem and the wonderful photographs submitted!

I ask people to submit  a paragraph or a poem verse to fit into an opening paragraph and closing poetry verse that I supply.  I ask for people to contribute the ‘stuffing’ of the story, the middle with a short paragraph OR a poetry verse.  I then take all of the submission both prose and poem and try to add it all into the middle to make up at Storetry (part story part poetry) that flows nicely into a ‘Storetry’ (part story ‘stor’ and part poetry ‘etry’) I use all submission that are supplied to me as long as they pertain to the weeks opening and closing.  I will be publishing a free eBook that will include all of the ‘Storetry’s’ along with everyone’s submissions and blog addresses.  So by participating you will become ‘published’!  You can find next weeks ‘Storetry’ info posted on my home page in the Stuff It Collaboration for Everyone Tab by tomorrow morning.

To help with reading, I have included each persons blog address below their submission, you can click on the link to check out more of their work if it interests you.

The Carnival

The place was crowded with people.  The smell of hot buttery popcorn enticed my nose.  The sounds of people and couples laughing and enjoying the hot summer evening danced on the air.  Flashing lights and rides whipping by the night skyline flashed before my eyes.  It was the night of the Summer Solstice Carnival, my favorite night of the year.
