Aspiring Young Writers: This is a Message for You.

Many teens have the secret dream of becoming a famous writer just like for example J.K. Rowling.

But most of them end up burying this dream deep into the dirt long before they reach adulthood and when they are past this age, becoming a writer was just like saying I wish to become a Hollywood celebrity or marry a Royal family. These of course can happen, but it happens only to 1 in a million of people.

But why do people assume that the 1 in a million can’t be YOU?

If we get discouraged and slowly build a lack of faith especially in teenage years, obviously, we won’t likely reach the dream… 100% determination and independent voice are what we need.

If we go back to our childhood, we notice that parents and relatives constantly asked us what we wanted to do when we grew up. We mainly said things like ‘pop star’ but as years passed we began to think of the possibility of achieving this job and we thought, well ‘teacher’ or ‘doctor’ is more reasonable… and approved by the others.

Sites of the Month: April 2012

‘Busy’ and ‘Moody’ – these two words described this month and are mostly the products of my trip to Malaysia, yet which I’ll never regret of course, because I have to adapt myself again to Mauritius, to school and activities at the same – which includes blogging! I’m still struggling to get back into my routine. *sigh*

Anyway let the list of my bookmarked websites of this month of April begin!

I’m sorry I wasn’t able to do this post earlier but I’m very busy with school and I’m having some mood swings too – typical of a teen😛 – but anyway, it’s obvious that my short one-week trip to Malaysia hasn’t left me untouched. Sincerely I love it there, I love to discover another culture… and be among people who only have either an iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy SII!😀

Seriously, if you’ve already gone there or if one day you go there, I’ll make sure in this post that you haven’t/won’t missed anything. Feel free to add more to the list. Otherwise… here are the 10 awesome things I did in Malaysia: 

1. Shopping à volonté!

Storeys and storeys of shops… some especially selling high quality shoes at a low price😉

Truly the variety and affordable range of products you can get in Kuala Lumpur mainly are infinite!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects + Sun

Hey I’m back!

And the first thing I thought of when I saw my laptop at last was to catch up on the weekly photo challenges!🙂 These posts are just so fun to do.

So here we go!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects

I have two interpretations for this one. All taken in Malaysia.😀

The first one is most likely to be obvious for those familiar with Malaysia, especially Kuala Lumpur (where I was) because the one thing you absolutely have to visit there if you have the chance to go is the Twin Towers!

Promoting Your Blog By Link Exchange

In my Advice on Guest Posting post I promised you to talk about another and easier way to promote your blog via other blogs, which is link exchange! So here I’m keeping my word🙂

What is link exchange?

It is a very simple process to increase traffic on your website: a blogger contacts another one and asks for a link exchange, which means that he/she will give away his website’s link and details for the other blogger to advertise it on its site, like for example in a sidebar, and vice versa.
