Read my piece HERE
I never let go an opportunity to spill my heart out for creative initiatives calling for expressionism. I have been following the blogworks of a talented, young, eighteen-year-old miss called Areeba Siddique from Karachi. Her adventures from my hometown are astonishing, considering I was not able to enjoy all those privileges when I inhabited that city many years ago. Back in my time people followed the equation:
Blogger = Freak Of The Internet World
When Areeba announced a monthly ezine project on her blog Not Your Type Blog, I was all up and moving. I could feel her adventurous literary vibe buzzing in the cybersphere. And so I wrote. The theme for the debut issue was Relationship With Your Blog. I have been a blogger since time immemorial. My first blog was an immature ranting portal. The website died and it was lost. But that is where I found my blogging voice. Then, a couple of more blogs got deleted as I struggled to find the right tone, the right theme, and the right expressionism.
Finally, I found my one true love - my blog for ages to come - Abbie's Adventure Diaries. I share an extra special relationship with my blog and Areeba's theme hit the spot. I got to typing up my feelings and instantaneously there was my debut piece for Bloglanders. Bloglanders and I have a connection now.
I liked reading every piece in the ezine.
Areeba wrote in "Save Me My Dear Blog" that she enjoys reading her words. I feel the same! In her piece she writes about how her blog MADE her become the person she is now. I feel the same! My blog has pushed my limits as well. I have also written about how it made me crack out of my shell.
The ezine has just begun so it is still a baby. But there is great potential there because Areeba has a strong following in the blogosphere. I have a feeling she will get many more writers and it would grow bigger and bigger. My ultimate favorite bit about the ezine is the illustration. Areeba is a brilliant artist and the drawings and graphics she makes are simply awesome. I can see myself printing the Bloglanders logo for my pinboard, because I am Team Bloglanders now.
