Life is a struggle and no matter where we are, whatever we become, no matter the amount of money we accumulate, we still have to go through the ups and downs that life mockingly throws at us. The journey of life is always filled with adventures, sorrows and happiness – it’s a complete package, you can’t escape it. Some emerge victoriously, some drown in the abyss of depression and death, the choice is completely ours to make.
However, no matter what we do, wherever we are, there is something in life that keeps us grounded and has the ability to transform, encourage, and take us back in time. This one particular special thing is deeply attached to our heart and soul because it has this miraculous property to connect to some special moments of our life that we cherish. Although, we might move on in life, but this special thing is still sitting safely somewhere in our closet, or drawers and sometimes when we accidentally bump into it, we instantly go back in time, recall the moments in our mind, and feel the joy that is hard to describe in words. The Cherished Blogfest allows you to share the story of one of your cherished objects and tell us why you cherish it in less than 500 words.
Last year, I received the honor of being one of the co-hosts of the ‘Cherished Blogfest’ along with Dan Antion, Damyanti Biswas, Peter Nena and Paul Ruddock. It was our first step forward to bring together bloggers to share their views and stories with us. Surprisingly, we were blown away by the kind of positive response we received from fellow bloggers eager to share their stories. The blogfest also became a great platform for bloggers to make new connections and renewing old ones.
Keeping that in mind, this year around the same time, we bring you the second season of the Cherished Blogfest along with my co-hosts:
Dan Antion – Dan has a NoFacilities blog and his straight-forward blog title is a clear indicator that he doesn’t mince words. He is straight to the point and incorporates sarcastic humor that will keep you smiling and keep coming back for more. He is a great photographer and his pictures offer an immersive blog-reading experience.
Damyanti Biswas – Supremely talented and gifted writer, Damyanti Biswas writes at DamyantiWrites blog. She offers blogging advice, writes about various topics related to writing and is equally good at fiction stories. Her short fiction has been commended at the Bath Flash Fiction Award and she is currently working on her debut novel.
Mary Giese – Mary J Melange proudly claims that she is not a professional writer, but don’t underestimate the power of the words she selects in her blogs. She is passionate about cats, caring for aged parents, and a bottle of wine, and bicycles and Harley bikes. This BikerChick should be on your list if you love blogs that focus on life’s reality and other things that matter to us in our everyday lifestyle.
Peter Nena – If Evil Dead movie didn’t scare you, I would recommend reading Peter Nena’s Demogorgon’s Fiction blog and I’m sure you’ll be asking someone to stay close to you. Peter’s imagination about horror and sci-fi and mysterious characters and story elements make his blog exciting and scary. He brings to us stories that are deeply rooted in the heart of Africa but has the tendency to strike fear deep inside your subconscious mind.
Cheryl Pennington – Do you love poems, nature, and photography? Cheryl’s Tropical Affair blog transports you into the land of goodness, birds, bees, and animals. Nature inspires her and she has a knack of weaving all the minor details neatly into her poems and blog posts. Her Nikon camera captures some of the best shots that we might otherwise miss out.
Kate Powell – A splash of watercolors and inks combined with great words makes Kate Powell’s blog an interesting read. Kate’s blog is all about the process, or all things related to art and she waste no time in sharing how she goes about making her art. If you love art and sketches and painting Kate’s blog is should be on your must-read list.
I would appreciate if you visit their blogs, read their posts and get connected.
