of one of our online courses – Academic Writing
and after a year with 1,216 articles published
389 followers and 19,616 hits – I’m so happy!
Here’s to all of you in the blogosphere – cheers!

Blogging 101: Make a Prompt Personal

Today’s assignment: publish a post based on your own, personalized take on a Daily Prompt.

I love routines! I wake up in the morning, look at the daily prompts and see if I can write something in response to what it’s asking. Sometimes, I can easily think of something to write. Sometimes, I have to force myself to come up with something and sometimes, I just can’t answer it. Oh well, that’s the way it is. But still, I love daily prompts. It’s part of my blogging.

Blogging 101
Writing prompt can be my best friend
It asks me questions
It gives me inspirations
Sometimes it’s funny
Sometimes I just make it up
But it’s a good tool
Learning to interpret it
It’s entertaining
And pleasurable for me

Dear Dream Reader

Dear Dream Reader,

Happy New Year! I hope this year makes all your dreams come true. I don’t know if you have been reading my blog but here’s just me, saying hi to you. Hi! I’m quite new to this blogging world and I’m learning and trying all types of posting, from my personal musings, experience, fiction, poetry, rhymes, photos and videos. Some are good, some not, but they’re all my humble offerings.

Here’s a copy of what I’ve written in November.

Cheers for now,
Ladyleemanila x

Dear dream reader, glad you’re here
Of spiritus mundi troubles my sight
Knowing you, knowing me in a sphere
Knocks, slaps and bumps in the night
Quite new to the game, this blogging
Rather fun, writing and exploring
And to think that this is all very tiring
You’d better catch me now, I’m melting.

A Brand New Me, Effective Tomorrow

Tomorrow is the first day of a brand new year. Tomorrow you get to become anyone in the world that you wish. Who are you? If you decide to stay “you” share your rationale.

A brand new me effective tomorrow; wow, who could I be?
Such a strong feeling like a hot stone glass burning inside me
The air was frosty fresh, bright as the sun and tasted of honey
Dispersing all over me, bubbling in and out of the country
My circuits are overloaded, but I’ll try to do better next time
Doing my part and encouraging others to have peacetime
I’ll greet each and every one a Happy New Year! Cheers!
Nostalgic; the action and feeling quite recently intermingled
A blank page and I can take my time to fill it in
Will do all the good ones, the fun ones, memorable ones
Doing good to others, spreading love and peace
Avoiding the bad ones, negative and hurtful ones
Things I don’t want happening to myself, I don’t do.
So I hope everyone will fill their blank page well
Good luck and all the very best. Welcome 2015!

Blogging 101: Who I Am And Why I’m Here

Red Flowers 1(1)

Ladyleemanila, a girl in fringe, pretty in red
Her brains swirl like that crazy cappucino smile
Will continue prosaic poesies and never grows tired
Writes what’s close to her heart, be it her experience,
Women’s rights, gender equality, migration and slavery
Be the voice of the voiceless, fights for their rights
Was born and bred in one of exciting 7,100 islands
Bounces like a ball, hither and thither on the go
Everything‘s new to her, but will give it a try
A long way to go, and so she must be patient.
