Famous People Tag: Yippee!

Well, a couple of days after creating my own blog award to give to others, I get nominated for the Famous People Tag. Sweet! The lovely person who has so kindly tagged me would be none-other-than miss Adaline over at AG In The Shire. Thank you very much, Adi!

Also, I apologize to everyone else for clogging up your blog feeds with "Here, have an award!" and "Look! I got an award!" That's how it goes, though, right? Never rains, it pours.

Alright. So, let's take a look at the rules here...

Thanks Adaline! :)


Blogger Recognition Award - Celebrate Bloggers!

Updated 5/26/16
As it has been over a year now since I first published this, I've cleaned the writing up a bit and updated the guidelines! :)

Blogging has changed our world. Like the Internet as a whole, it's changed the way we communicate, exchange information, and simply how we spend our time. People from all walks of life can create a blog and work their way into having a dedicated readership, or just experiment with the freedom it gives. Talented minds, famous names, ordinary people - every single one of us has the chance to be heard. To be part of a global community. This is the blogosphere, the blogging world, and each individual blogger helps to make it what it is.

So, why not celebrate this wonderful thing? Not just blogging; but celebrate the bloggers themselves. The folks who share with us their talents and interests, their photography and stories and art, their views and opinions; the people who come here to vent their frustrations with life, and the people who want to make us laugh and smile. Because without them, this diverse, free, and fun thing wouldn't be possible.

Now, how shall we celebrate? With an award, of course!

Welcome to Edge of Night

Edit (7/31/2015): Rewrote the entire post to reflect my blog's design changes.

A hearty hello to my visitors here, and a major welcome to Edge of Night, my haven for writing.

You'll find here plenty of poems, short stories, and other fun little things that I felt like posting. The topics I write about are not specific - nor are the styles or genres. I like to experiment with a little bit of everything. Some are personal, most aren't.

I've received some very helpful feedback from my readers and I truly appreciate that. I take criticism in stride, and one of my goals here is and has always been to improve my writing. I can't do that if I don't know what's wrong in the first place! Please don't hesitate if you have any feedback of your own, be it positive or negative.

For any other writers out there, keep it up. If you enjoy it, keep doing it. It's not easy to share your work with others—it's very personal stuff. Just remember that art, and thus writing, is subjective; some will like it, and some will not. Be proud of what you create—that's what makes it art.

As I like to say,

When it comes to writing, you're bound by nothing. No style is ever wrong; only different.

Au revoir,
