Anger and revenge seldom serve any other purpose Than to further agitated and disturb our peace of mind Hate is the poison that seeps into our blood and soul It’s the punishment we give to ourselves for the misdeeds of others Let the anger die a death of starvation And burry hatchet of revenge under buried bodies of acrimonious emotions
I found heaven in her eyes As I gazed into those deep dark pools A feeling of serenity rose up to meet me And I found heaven in her eyes
Her love shone true and pure Selfless and generous As she offered all that she treasured With the love that shone through her eyes
And I found my heaven in her love The love of a mother, benevolent and kind Her heart holding mine in a hug of comfort And her eyes shedding tears of happiness And for a moment, we both experienced paradise
Today’s prompt: Write a poem that ends with the word “key”
What in your opinion is the key to being a successful blogger?
In my opinion, blogging is all about connecting with your reader.
If you have a niche, the reader/ follower would know that and they would read your latest post to get updated about it.
If you’re a writer of stories or poetry, interested people will be logging in to read them. Whatever you write, the people who feel a connection will be there to read your posts.
How to develop this connection?
There are many ways to connect to your reader;
• Write genuine content, something that is original and comes straight from you. Even a researched post should have that special touch that only you can give it.
• Get to know your readers/ followers. Read their comments, respond to them, and appreciate their interest and effort. Do visit their blogs and even if you don’t follow them, read a post and if you like, comment as well. Getting to know the person behind the blog is important as it develops a rapport with them.
•Content is the key! Never take it lightly. Put effort into creating your content and make sure it is free of mistakes, spelling errors, or grammatical ones.
• Remember that it will take time! Nothing will happen overnight, or even in a few months. So have realistic expectations and don’t get despondent if you don’t see instant results.
• Don’t compare your blog to any one else’s! Comparison just creates unreal expectations or disappointments.
These are a few points that have helped me in my blogging journey.
