Writer Blogs Galore! Here’s the New Writer Blog Roll

Ever feel like you’re all alone out in the blogosphere?

Like you’re isolated and detached, craving some interaction with other like minded bloggers…

Well, tell loneliness to go fly a kite.

Welcome to the New Writer Blog Roll

[tweetthis]Checkout, network and engage with other newbie bloggers![/tweetthis]

You all have one thing in common–you’re part of the New Writer Scholarship community!

Those who responded to my email are now featured in this list–their name, title, and a link to their website.

If you did not turn in your blog to be featured in this blog roll, you still can–simply leave a comment below with your name, title and a link to your website.

I normally don’t care for links in blog comments, except for the appropriate one embedded in your name…here though, I’m going to make an exception.

In fact, I encourage you to leave a comment here with your blog link.

And be sure to leave comments on some of the other blogs you find here.

This blog roll is a catalyst to helping new writers meet one another, read their content and perhaps even make new contacts (friends) online.

Some Good Writer Blogs are Found Here

You might be surprised at what you find here–there are many quality blogs in this list. Other folks are just getting off to a good start but are excited and had the courage to share their site!

Browse and read what interested you. There are many different niches in this blog roll.

This list is not categorized. I simply created the list based on chronology…Tiffany was the first one to reply to my email, and so on.

Say hi in the comments and share whatever is on your mind…did you read a blog that blew your mind? Something tickle you? Be sure to share.

I will make sure the other blogger you mention gets notified of your comment, and they will likely respond.

Let the Good Times (Blog) Roll

Which blogs do you like? Let us know in the comments.

As I stated at the top of the page, if you are not yet on this blog roll, you can leave a comment with a link to your blog included.

To all of you New Writers who responded to last week’s email, thanks for sharing your websites. I salute you.

May this blog roll provide you with many new online connections.

Please click a social share button (or three) so other people you love can check out the New Writer Blog Roll, too! 🙂

Cheers to your writing career and blog success,



  1. Sarah Fallon   •  

    So excited to be on this list. It’s great having a look through everyone else’s too; Tiffany I had a few failed attempts at the old drivers license too, Good luck! Aubrey, I’m 27 and don’t know what I’m doing either lol.
    I’m going to keep reading now and check out what you all have on offer 🙂

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hi Sarah,

      Thanks for sharing your blog with everyone. I’m glad you are enjoying the exchanges between different bloggers here.

      Have an awesome week!


  2. Tiffany   •  

    Hello, fellow bloggers and writers! I’m honoured to be a part of this Blog Roll! Haha, glad to know that I’m not the only one trying to defeat the boss that is the Drivers’ License, Sarah. Thanks for the luck, I’ll need it for my next attempt at it lol. I think I will also do a little browsing of my own to see what you amazing people have come up with. 🙂

      • Tiffany   •  

        Hello, Jonathan. Did you get the chance to check out my blog? 🙂

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hey Tiffany,

      I’m honored as well to have you be a part of this…looking forward to seeing how your writing career progresses.
      Enjoy all these amazing people! Have fun.


      • Tiffany   •  

        Hi, Matt!
        I’m looking forward to seeing how my writing career progresses as well haha. I’m definitely enjoying browsing through all these amazing blogs. 🙂

  3. Justin Irabor   •  

    This is a pretty awesome list we have here.

    I’ve always wondered why many reviewers get a kick from writing negative reviews of things – I guess it’s easier, right, than giving positive reviews? – and Jonathan Elmore’s Talking Simian Reviews appears to resonate sympathetically with that POV.

    I’ve just spent the last few hours organizing these blog posts into my own customized lists, complete with sub-genres.

    Amazing. Who knew there was this much good stuff out there?

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hi Justin,

      Love your positive vibe! Good to hear how much this has benefitted you.
      Wow, you sound pretty organized as well. 🙂

      There is more “good stuff” out there than people realize….that’s why I did this. 🙂

      Keep in touch,


  4. Gabbi Miller   •  

    Really excited to have my blog out of this blog roll! I think that a lot of people on here have amazing sites and I can’t wait to read through them.

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hi Gabbi,

      This awesomesauce list of blogs IS pretty exciting, isn’t it. 🙂
      I’m glad you are having fun here.



  5. Dr. Rin Porter   •  


    What a fantastic idea – to publish a list of new bloggers and their websites! I was amazed at the variety of topics and people who applied for the writer’s scholarship you created.

    This list is a new source of ideas for me, and I’m sure for others who will go through it and choose some of the blogs to read.

    Thanks for your work in putting this together, and your generosity in coming up with the idea.

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hey Rin,

      I’m glad you like this! More have been added since you left this comment. See what you find, okay, and let me know.
      Looking forward to your upcoming “new ideas”.


  6. Lisa   •  

    It’s great to be included with so many different types of blogs and bloggers. Thanks for bringing us together, Matthew!

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hi Lisa,

      I’m thrilled and quite pleased to have been able to bring you all together. 🙂
      Enjoy! See what you can find and tell us what you think!


  7. Jen R.   •  

    Hi Everyone!

    Thanks for including my blog on the Blog Roll Matt! I’m excited to be a part of it. I may be one or the only one of all of us who writes about sports … particularly (almost exclusively) baseball. I’ve had my blog about 3 1/2 years. It moved from blogspot to WP to WP.org finally about a year ago.

    I must say when I look back at my first posts they’re so bad it’s seriously laughable. I hadn’t the slightest idea what in the world I was doing and I still only have a slight idea!! It’s the truth but to anyone really just starting out it gets easier, your writing gets better, the overall look and feel of your blog will change and be molded into something more “you” than when you started. At least, that’s what happened to me although I still really am not too sure what I am doing is even very good.

    I look forward to checking out as many of your blogs as I can!!! If you like sports please head over and check out my baseball blog (it has nothing to do with how cute players’ butts are – that I promise you – I’m NOT that kind of female sports fan! lol). Lately I feel badly because I’ve been neglecting it. So a lot of the new stuff you will see on the first few pages will likely be excerpts from my columns that I write daily for FanRag Sports’ MLB division TodaysKnuckleball.com. I apologize ahead of time for that!

    I’ve been wanting to write something of a more personal nature but I just moved and have been very busy with life and work …. which is something I could absolutely write about! LOL! Just know that all my posts are not always so formal as some of the newest ones on there … If there are any other sports writers out there on this list let me know!

    I like trading guest posts and having fun with other writers … It’s only happened a few times but it is something that I would love to have happen more often – perhaps make it a weekly thing if I knew enough people! Even if you are not a sports writer feel free to contact me – maybe you have a memory or a story or something that relates to what I’m talking about or whatever! Anyways, THANKS AGAIN FOR LISTENING and TO MATT FOR PUTTING THIS LIST TOGETHER!!! Y’all are awesome! Go A’s! (I end most any correspondence with that!) … and even if you don’t like sports you may find my journeys into the wide world of socks interesting … Take care everyone! Have a great day! 🙂

    ~ Jen

    • Jonathan Acabo   •  

      Hi, Jen!

      I’ve visited your blog… and yes you are a sport’s enthusiast. It’s impressive that you are passionate about it. I like your writing style and you have a nice responsive theme! I love green…. I love it.


    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hi Jen,
      I’m happy that you replied so people can see and hear from a sports niche blogger. This is cool!

      I appreciate you sharing your story here. I know many folks have felt or do feel like they “only have a slight idea” what they’re doing. You’re a good example of the benefits of taking action, getting started and learning hands-on, and steady growth in knowledge and content creation quality over time.

      If you want to bounce any ideas off me as far as your “second” personal blog, feel free to email me. I’d be happy to help as much as I can.

      Please let me know if you are or ever in the future write about the KC Royals….I grew up there and am a big fan! How do you see their chances of a WS title this year? (I hope we can still be friends from one Royals fan to an A’s fan. 😉 )

      Seriously, it’s great to hear from you, and I hope you’ll drop by again.



    • Hi Jen, I would definitely be interested in trading guest posts on sport at some point down the line. My blog is in the early stages and geared towards the extreme side of sport but I’m sure we will have a cross over somewhere.

  8. Jonathan Acabo   •  

    Hello, Sir Matthew!

    Thank you so much for adding me here. I was impressed of the number of aspirants listed here. I believe I could be able to create a new list of new found friends from here.

    Thank you so much, once again!


    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hi Sir Jonathan,

      You’re welcome, mate! There are a lot of impressive aspirants here, aren’t there?
      Hope you make many new friends…..like Tiffany, who asked you a question in her comment. 🙂

      Have fun,


  9. Deb Palmer   •  

    Thanks for including me in the blog roll. I plan on reading and commenting on as many as possible. Hope others do the same.

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hi Deb,

      You bet! It was good to see your blog and get to know you a little better after our emails and video talk.
      You have a lot of personality. It shows in your blog!
      Have fun with the blog visits and comments.



  10. Brent Jones   •  

    What a great list, Matt! I don’t think there are very many folks online as good as you at fostering a sense of community among bloggers.

    Keep up the great work. 🙂


    PS: Just a heads up that I’ll be on the road until the second week of November — wanted to let you know, so if you don’t see me poking around your blog as often as usual, you’ll know why. Thanks a ton!

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hi Brent,

      Thanks, man. This community is a fun bunch! They make it all worthwhile.

      Wow, you’ve been on the road awhile, mate! Let me know if you drop by my neck of the woods. 🙂


      • Brent Jones   •  

        Actually, we just left last Friday… we left later than planned and shortened our trip. I don’t think we’re passing through MO on this run, unfortunately. But would love to meet up with you someday!

  11. Joan   •  

    hello to everyone,i am so humbled to be on this blog roll….thank you Matt for creating such an avenue and i look forward to being more inspired by the bloggers/writers on this list.


    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hi Joan,

      There’s plenty of inspiration here, for sure. Be sure to check out some of these blogs done by fellow scholarship hopefuls!


  12. tobyo   •  

    Hi everyone! And thanks for including my blog. Just wondering….I didn’t get an email telling me about this post. I found it quite by accident after checking my blog’s stats. I clicked on that link and it brought me here. I checked my spam folder and nothing is in there. So I’m glad I found it accidentally! I’m out of town at the moment but hope to check out these other blogs soon!

    happy blogging 🙂

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hi Tobyo,

      High five for finding this earlier than most! 🙂 I’m going to send the email about this in a couple of hours.



      • tobyo   •  

        oh, aha! I thought maybe since you had so many bloggers that you perhaps missed sending the link to me 🙂 too funny. thanks!

  13. tobyo   •  

    Hi Stella at “where my heart travels”. I of course clicked on your blog’s link as I too am a traveler. I immediately found your 12 tips for finding airfare bargains. I’m not all the way through the post yet but wanted to thank you for the incognito setting in Chrome. I have wondered about that so I’m going to use that from now on. Thank you so much!! going back now to read some more while I have a few minutes.

  14. Mark Moran   •  

    Hi everyone! Better late than never. 🙂 Thanks so much for putting together this amazing list! I can’t wait to check out some of the great blogs and amazing writers you’ve collected together.

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hey Mark,

      You really weren’t that late. 🙂 New applicants in the past week did not get the previous email, so they’ll be jumping in here this week. 🙂



  15. TK Lawyer   •  

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for including me on the blog roll. I think this is a wonderful resource for newbies like me. I am hoping to gain more subscribers and reach out to Paranormal Romance Fans- I know you are out there hiding somewhere. I am trying to find you!! Hoping to gain more readers. Thanks for helping me out.

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hi TK,

      Be sure to take action here and do the reaching out, and you will then get more readers. There are other novelists on this blog roll….leave comments on their blog. Get to know them. Build a relationship.
      That will reap a lot more than you would if you just passively sit back and wait for others on this list to contact you first.

      Good luck,


  16. Alexander Blum   •  

    Novelist trying to get my book, ‘The New Symphony’ published. My website hosts a variety of blog posts, essays and short stories I’ve written on topics ranging from relativism, philosophy, politics, religion, art, spirituality and strong stances on the age we live in

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hi Alexander,

      That sounds like a thought provoking blog. What is “The New Symphony” about?

      • Alexander Blum   •  

        Well, I’ve been honing a pitch so I hope I explain it alright, but essentially it’s about a city fulled of masked spirits in the afterlife, where an ex-soldier washes ashore and the world around her becomes a reflection of her psyche. She has to transcend her own demons through the world around her, where the reflection of humanity’s discontent has become an incarnation of Cain who is trying to kill God and recreate the world from scratch, a world where humanity doesn’t have to depend on masks. It has abstract concepts but it’s told with very short chapters at a pretty fast pace

        • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

          Hi Alexander,

          That sounds like an amazing story. Is that considered “fantasy”?
          I wish you lots of success with that novel, my friend.



  17. Rebel Wylie   •  

    Hey! Awesome blog roll, looks like I have some reading to do!

    Shamelessy dropping my own name here. If you don’t mind a bit of language and saracasm – pop over.

    I blog at Rebel Without A Pause x

  18. Nichole Hall   •  

    What a great idea! I am a writer, a wife and a mom who lives with chronic illness. I try to be an encouragement to others in the struggle. I look forward to connecting with others through this post. Thanks so much for doing this!

    My name is Nichole Hall. I’m a writer. My blog is: http://www.nicholehall.com/blog

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hi Nichole,

      I admire bloggers who use their platform to help others. You’re taking a health challenge and writing posts that many people can relate to. Keep going and growing.
      Drop by again, okay?

      Much Success,


  19. Yatin Khulbe   •  

    Hi Matthew

    You are doing an awesome work of bringing people together. I have gone through some of the blogs. I was surprised to look at the poetry work of the bloggers. Many of them are budding writers. They are sharpening their writing skills by using the free platform.

    From this list, I personally know about Tor’s website. These days, he is all over the blogosphere by spreading his ideas through guest posts.

    As you mentioned in the beginning to include the link of the website. here is the link of my site: http://mushroomcontent.com/ . I hope you will like my efforts.

    Thanks for introducing the writers on a big platform. It feels good to connect with people who are working on improving the lives of other people.

  29. Anna Peter   •  

    To echo the rest of our little blogging community, I too am very giddy to be on this list!

    As I was perusing the featured blogs, I noticed the link to Crytal McLendon’s blog “Apologize in Advance” is broken (at least for me).

  30. Donae   •  

    Wow, it’s so exciting to see so many new bloggers all with different interests! Can’t wait to dive in and get to know everyone better! 🙂

  31. Sgt. Mac   •  

    Great idea! I started a blog, but now can’t get my stupid password to work. Will update, soon as I can figure it out. ;(

  32. Sgt. Mac   •  

    OK, try this one. What a pain, trying to get a password.

  33. Sgt. Mac   •  

    I’m really having a senior moment. I typed the comment in the CAPTCA code, duh. Entirely forgot to say, that I looked at about a third of the blogroll. Although I haven’t followed anyone yet, I see some pretty talented folks out there. 😉

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      There’s a bunch of talent here, Sgt. Mac. Good to hear you’re enjoying this list!

  41. Jude Obafemi   •  

    Hi Matthew,

    Thanks for the opportunity to come across this roll. It’s is only wishful that I had the luxury of the time to go through each and every one of this thoroughly rich resource. As one who loves the art, to see these writings and not able to surf through each and every one of them is a pain better imagined.

    Thanks for making this possible. Thank you indeed.


    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hi Jude,

      I would just bookmark this page and take your time. There’s some real gems here.
      Thanks for letting me know how much you enjoy this.

    Oh my goodness Matthew, 150 blogs. It’s going to take me forever to go through those but I know everyone appreciates you sharing their writings and I’m so happy that you’re doing this for them. I’m sure they really do appreciate having you behind them for support.

    If I have some time I’ll check out a few of them, always fun to find some new people to connect with of course.

    Thanks for sharing this list with us Matthew and again for your support of new writers.

  68. Gwen   •  

    Hi Everyone,

    I’m going through several of these sites now, but will have to come back later — there are too many for one sitting! I love the range that’s provided in this selection.

    My blog (http://takingnothingforgranted.com/) is all about exploring computers and using them more efficiently (keyboard shortcuts, anyone?!)

    Thanks for putting this post together, Matthew!

    Thank you Matt for putting this together. I am trying to go through as many blogs as I can and learn from everyone. There are some fantastic ones on here. Please have a look at my blog when you have a spare minute. Have just started so need some tips and direction. I am blogging about my nightmare years dealing with my parents dementia. Hoping to help others who may have to encounter this devastating illness.
    All the best to all the other bloggers!

    Thank you so much for adding my name on the list! Though mine is not technically a blog yet, I enjoy writing on my own facebook page. I do write for some other pages and blogs too.

    I’m still an amateur learning to grasp her hold on the world that is writing and I’m so glad that I could find so many new blogs to boost myself.

    I’d be honoured if I could know what those who have gone through my writings think of them.

  73. Roy Tyrrell   •  

    What an amazing array of great material Matt. My own blog will obviously be covering coaching but also other topics such as harmony, trust, perceptiveness and understanding. All the best ingredients for health, prosperity and satisfaction in our lives and workplaces.

  77. Diane   •  

    Hi Everyone! I launched my blog 5 months ago, so I guess technically, I’m still a newbie. I’m developing a following by commenting on blogs I’ve found through lists that some bloggers generously include. This list is a boon, Matthew! I’ll enjoy reading the ones I think may be relevant to the demographic I’m addressing—Boomers and Pre-Boomers. The Lucky Few I include in my title are those of us born just before the Boomers in 1945. Makes us appear really old, I know! But you will be surprised what a vigorous and active group it is! Thanks again.

  78. Rickey Harris   •  

    Loving the list here, Matthew!! So many people with new blogs on here!! You are an inspiration to beginning bloggers. My blog, “Rick’s Adventures” is at http://www.rickeytravels.com. I hope to see all of you there!!

  79. Katelyn Skipper   •  


    First of all, I never thought about blogging about my writing.
    It never crossed my mind, I usually just posted my new work
    on twitter. But since I have tumblr, i thought I’d utilize one of
    my side blogs! Thanks so much for the opportunity.

  81. rich   •  

    Hi, I’m Rich, Matt you’re a star, we’ve chatted loads before and without your help I’d never have got started.
    My blog is about my life – I killed someone in a car crash 22 years ago, almost to the day and I wanted to share my story and life and how I got there and then dealt with it after. If I could save one person from going through what I have and perhaps avoid another innocent life being lost, then I feel that the struggle has all been worth it.
    Check it out of you like, it’s still work in progress but I’ll get there….. http://www.iBlogAbout.net
    Good luck everyone with your blog – Matt is great if you need help.
    Good work my friend

  82. Daniel Foxx   •

  98. Kerryn Booth   •  

    Hi everyone! My blog is about what I am learning in my life as an individual, a wife and mother of two year old twins. It’s called ‘Come and Be Real’ because I believe we can pretend that we have it all together but in reality everyone has problems and ‘challenges’ that happen in our lives. So my blog is where I am real about my challenges and what I can and have learned from them! It is still a work in progress but I’d love to have you visit 🙂 Thanks Matt for this and all the help you have given me along the way!


    • Hi Kerry,

      Just a heads up – Tried to read your blog posts but each post simply redirects to your contact page.

  103. Teri Fullmer   •  

    Hi All!

    Thanks so much, Matt, for including me and for all your help along the way. My blog is simply about the journey and struggles/challenges/successes of myself and other women over 50 (Or anyone! I’m pretty age friendly) Turning 50, although not earth shattering, was eye-opening. Time is going by and I need to do something with it! This blog has been extremely fun and satisfying. I’ve learned so many things.

    Thanks again, Matt!

  107. Precious Chiduku   •  

    Now, I understand why you want to help upcoming bloggers! Seriously at first I just thought, oh well. It’s just one of those things; giving back to society type of thing. But I have been through a dozen blogs now (my progress is slower than I initially anticipated) and I am just amazed. THERE IS SO MUCH UNDISCOVERED TALENT. So many blogs that the world needs to know about!
    Thank you for this amazing opportunity. I have encountered some great people. People I thought don’t exist anymore! Thank you.

  108. Alex   •  

    Hey Matthew,
    Thanks for your generous offer and support. Great list here! You’re a gentleman and a scholar man!

    My blog is about Living and Leading with Purpose. I write about personal development, leadership, vision, and time-sensitive productivity.

    Thanks again,

  109. Ellen Morrow   •  

    Hi Matt,
    Greatly appreciate all the information and support you offer to us clueless bloggers. Thanks so much for accepting add ons.

    The Doods are my amazing (of course) therapy dogs who volunteer at UCLA Medical Center and Providence Hospital. I think people have been encouraging me to write about them in the hopes that I’d shut up and stop talking about them. No such luck. From my first post, Confessions of a Happy Dogaholic, to my most recent, I’m a Dog Walker and a Street Walker, I really hope to entertain and occasionally inspire.

    Thanks again! Without your blog I never would have gotten started.

  110. Janelle   •

    Hi Everyone! I am zuimmie. This is my first attempt in writing a blog. Got lots to learn from everyone! ☺

  113. Odiah Azu.   •  

    This is an amazingly long list.
    I did try my best to go through at least 70 totally different blogs, and they were really cool, by the way.
    I especially liked TK Lawyer. Although I’m not too sure why. But frankly, why not?
    All the blogs and posts really helped me considering ideas and concepts for the blog I consider making soon enough. Each was unique, diverse, full of independent life and yet similarly streamlined to cater to a wide range of audience. I hope to have more time to go through the rest.
    Thanks again Matthew,
    for giving writers a more advantaged chance. Definitely worth it.
    *ps: numbers 36 and 150 are the same blog by the same person.

  114. Meghan Malaatjie   •

    Thanks so much, Matthew for all you do for the blogging community. You inspired me to take the plunge and try out blogging.

    My blog is about daily life and experiences we all share as individuals, as spouses, as parents and as children of God. It’s meant to be an encouraging place to know we’re not alone even when some says it feels that way.
    Thank you!!!

  116. Ellen Morrow   •  

    Oops never put the blog name in my first comment. meandthedoods.com is about my funny, amazing therapy dogs. Thanks again Matt.

    Hey Matthew,

    Thanks so much for creating this. Reading a blog a day…

    Hello fellow writers! What great things you have to say…enjoying a slow meander through all of your offerings.

    I have only just dipped my toe into the blog scene. My posts are sporadic but I’m here to stay 🙂


    • Sarah   •  

      Oh and my blog is fractionsofthewhole.wordpress.com

      🙂 Sarah

  121. Precious Chiduku   •  

    hmmm… I wish there was a way of knowing who visited your blog so you can surely visit them back.

    • Dana   •  

      Great idea!!! 🙂

      I’m cupofkismet.com. What’s yours? 🙂

  122. Antonia   •  

    My site is about embracing the later years of our life. After all, these just might be some of our best years. I share my personal experience mashed in with humor, spirituality, and gratitude.

  123. Madhumitha Murali   •  

    Hi Matt,
    Could you add this blog to the list too. http://cascadingwithbooks.blogspot.in/
    …There existed a man, who spoke in poetic verses. He witnessed a murder at night, the terrific night, he verses upon the tragic view with intensity of lines, but people don’t take him seriously. For one man understood him, he was a threat, one man tried to protect him, and he was his friend.” …

  124. Hi again Matt,

    I have been through your list and some really interesting blogs but can I make a suggestion to some of those on your list Matt.

    Please, please, please make it easier for your readers to actually contribute to your blog.

    Some don’t have the ability to post a comment whatsoever and others force you to use social media comment plugins that quite frankly require readers to jump through hoops to post a comment.

    I liked Jen’s baseball blog but finding a post to be able leave a comment on is almost impossible. Kinda defeats the object of having a blog and posting its existence here- don’t ya think guys.

    For the love of blogging, if you want a real audience that interacts please stop using comment plugins that are designed primarily for other bloggers to get noticed. Your blog is for people not for other bloggers. Make it easier for your readers and followers to leave a comment without the need to jump through hoops to do so. You engagement and interaction will increase as a result.

  125. Kenneth   •  

    Hello Matt,

    This was a great idea!! Could you please add my blog to the list. I have only been able to read through a few of the blogs so far, but some have been very interesting.

    To my fellow bloggers keep up the good work and hope to hear from some of you soon!

  126. Wendy   •  

    Hi everyone, having fun with learning blogging and meeting new people 🙂

  127. Kenneth   •  

    To my fellow bloggers I have also tried to reply to some of your blogs but was unable. You should have a reply area to post a comment and maybe not social media plugins.

    Just a suggestion. My blog: mannthwindowwithaview.com

  128. Lily Caraballo   •  

    Holy crap, I’m on the blog roll. This is cool, I’m super stoked about this. Thanks Matt for giving me such an opportunity 😀

    Guess I’m gonna have to step my game up now…

  129. Mary St. Dennis   •  

    This is quite a list! Thank you for giving all the new kids on the block a voice.

  130. Marlene Diedrick   •  

    Thanks for this opportunity. I launched marspeak.net last June with many blogs since then. Am writing from my experiences from 29 moves in 59 years of marriage around the U.S. and living in five other countries: New Zealand, Norway, Denmark, South Korea, and Mexico (with my husband and four children.) These experiences have shaped my political and social beliefs. I write to tell the what and why of those beliefs. Will focus on Election 2016 with the same what and why information.

    Thanks again,
    Marlene Diedrick

  132. Daniel Foxx   •

    I invite all of you to come visit my blog page on my website at http://www.daniel-foxx.com

    Hi Matt,
    Don’t know if I can still join in the new bloggers group but have been reading some of these and I think they are marvellously ‘way ahead of me in the talent department but if I jump on board, I know I will learn a lot!! Reading here has been amazing! The sky’s the limit in subject matter. I love it. Perhaps there are some bloggers like me, semi retired or younger people who would enjoy some of my memories of growing up on the prairies as I did in an era I call: “simpler times.” I don’t have the website of my dreams yet and am just blogging pages and pages right now, which is actually going to be my book of memoirs one day. Anyways I can be found @ Memory Lanes Site @ http://www.pagesofmymindblog.com
    Looking forward to meeting new bloggers.
    Thank you, Matt for all the doors you open for us!

    Thanks for the positive encouragement and for building this community space, Matthew, and to all of the other bloggers out there who are participating. I’d love to have my blog included in the roundup: http://www.sarahelizabethaldrich.com/blog. Mostly, it’s prose and is about my experience as an American who has recently moved to Vietnam. But I write about other topics and also like to use poetry from time to time.

    I blog at http://girlinthemetro.com. Would love for y’all to check it out 🙂

    Thanks for the opportunity Matt! You’ve got a great list of blogs here.

    • Sujha Sundararajan   •  

      Hello Rina…

      I just added your blog to my list. I liked the post ”Anatomy of a Morning Commute.” Actually speaking, the scene you had mentioned earlier on a jeep ride towed me to imagine the scene in India. Since I am from India, this is the same condition in metros here as well. In a jeep that could accommodate only 8, 15 to 17 commuters would pour in and sit on laps of others. Though the scene looks uncomfortable and tiring, it is humorous to see so many people jamming into a single jeep.

  154. Sujha Sundararajan   •  

    Hello All.

    Good to see your blogs… My blog is desihues.wordpress.com and please do follow it. Thanks Matt for this golden opportunity…

    I am a wife, mother, blogger and in my spare time I keep track of whose turn it is to play with the Ipad.

    • Matthew Loomis   •     Author

      Hey Alleta,

      I like that description of what you do in your spare time. 🙂 I’m a dad so I can relate.

      Thanks for sharing,


  159. Anne Davidson   •  

    Thank you Matt for letting all join in. I’m a poet/writer I have poems and short stories and share them. My biggest dream is to be a writer. To share my writing with the whole world. I just don’t know if I am any good at it but do love it. Here is one of my poems from the link I shared. And another link to my other writes.


    My inspiration,
    comes from the world.
    In their presence,
    I find my joy.

    With a thankful heart,
    I shall smile.
    Walking my every mile.

    Hoping to touch their souls.
    Life It takes its tolls.
    But one should always stay tall.
    Even when many leave their call.

    So come unite with my heart.
    Leave behind the fears.
    Let lose the tears.
    And open up to all the joys.


    “Defeat of The Evil Queen”

    It was calm and quiet night and the stars where shineing brightly in the night sky, however one person was still awake.

    Inside a small house was a young girl,
    No older then 16 she had just awoke
    From the worse dream she had ever had.
    Her eye brows was drenched with sweat indicating she just had a nightmate.

    “Mother where are you?” Said the girl
    Silence filled the air.
    She soon remembered,
    Her mother couldn’t awnser her.
    For she had been dead for years.

    Just when she was about to go back to bed, she heard a knock on the door.
    She walked to the door to opened it,
    She saw an older gentleman
    standing in her door way.

    “Well this is a surprise, I never though I would see the day that the great General Devon Drake would come and vist me.
    I guess today is my luck day.”
    Said the girl with a chuckle.

    The man known as Devon had a displeasing look on his face that show that
    comment was unnecessary.

    “You would be wise not to insult me girl. But I am not here to play mind games with you, I am here to give you a mission. ”
    Devon said.

    “The Evil Queen has struck again.
    And there are many that need your,
    Healing hands my child.

    But this mission is dangerous.
    For she may seek you out to stop you.”

    “You know I fear nothing,
    When there are souls in need,
    Of my help.” Said Airiana.

    Soon Airiana set out to heal,
    Those that was in need.
    She reached the town of Deston,
    There her life would change forever.

    For the evil queen had sent,
    Her men to kill her.
    She fought them,
    And used her healing powers,
    To break her powers upon them.

    Slowly the evil queens,
    Army was no more.
    Forcing her to show herself to Airiana.
    There they stood face to face.

    “What have you done young lady.”
    Said Malani.

    I have brought your curses to a end.
    And set those men free from your power.
    Cause its time for a end to your rane.

    The night sky soon was light up,
    By the power of the ladys.
    As they used their magic against,
    Each other not knowing the out come.

    Airiana waiting for the purfect time,
    To blast Malani with a powerful,
    White light ball of lightening.

    Soon Airiana had brought
    her to her knees.
    With tears in her eyes.
    She had to admit her defeat.

    Hi all! Wow, this list has really grown! I look forward to checking out the blogs of all these people who are so dedicated to their writing. For now, though, I wanted to leave the information for mine. I am really grateful for people like Matt. Honestly, I don’t really care about the writing scholarship. Stumbling across his site was like falling into a gold mine! Two writing classes, some tutorials, and a few blog posts later, I have a rekindled flame driving me to grow as a writer; and I’m enjoying every second of it! If you get a chance and would like to take a look at my blog, here is the link:

    Thanks for allowing us to participate. I’m not a poet or anything, just a retiree who wants to pass on some experiences I’ve had in my chosen field. I’m struggling with the mechanics of Word Press etc more than the ideas and writing.

    The participants here have some amazing talent and I wish only success for them!
    All the best,
