PoeticJourney

I have been blogging for a while now, and its time for update. I first came to blogging world to make a home for myself with all my thoughts. I finally decided to just share my life with the world. Teaching the world just what Sickle Cell is and what I go through. I’m also a Psychology major. So of course y’all maybe thinking, she may be trying get in our heads. That’s not the case, so nothing to worry about. I hope you all stay for the ride and enjoy.

  I decided to make my blog more about me and what I’m going through such as my trials and tribulations, and still be able to inspire someone with my quotes and motivated them if I can. I recently was in the hospital and the nurse gave me the ideal to blog either about my illness or either my major. I choose my illness because not much information is out there and it never came to me to spread the word through my blog.

I choose  PoeticJourney because I’m going through my own personal Journey to discover who I am and closer relationship with Christ as well. I have being through a lot and seem like every time I’m there something always pulling me back. Someone recently ask about my FAITH!  I must admit I believe I lost it along my journey in life so hoping to recovery it as I grow. Go enjoy the ride with me if you dare to take it.

The name  I have tells a story, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I’m learning on my journey thru life and love. I do talk about love a lot, as well as God. If you have a problem with any of that, you might not want to continue with my journey. No, that’s not all I talk about. I’m just letting it be known before you take the Long Journey with Me.  God Bless

  1. Yay, I’m your first!!!… Commenter, that is. 😉

    I saw your post at a friend’s blog… Are you new to WordPress.com, and were you thinking about moving your Xanga blog over? If you decide to, it isn’t as hard as it seems; I once was on Xanga as well. I’d say the biggest difference is that you can tweak the html/css in Xanga for free & Xanga’s got the groups feature that are similar to the old web rings.

    Some themes you choose will have more features open/unlocked to you, so if you want something like Xanga’s “Pulse” feature, for example, you should look for a theme that has “Aside” posts as an enabled feature. Aside posts are short-n-sweet like Pulses, Tweets, or FB statuses. Some themes also have “Quote” features so you can post a quote instead of a blog post — it will be displayed differently. Same thing with “Gallery” posts (like a photo album), “Image” posts (1 pic showcased), and there’s also themes that have “Sticky” and “Featured” enabled.

    If you can’t find time to blog near a PC/laptop but find yourself sitting in public transportation or wherever & wishing you could make a quick post, there are free WordPress apps to help! They make it fairly easy for you to be a WordPress addict, let me tell ya! 😉

    If you can’t think of what to write about, check out The Daily Post for ideas and inspiration, as well as for posts made by others who use some of the topics mentioned.

    I’d say that the important thing is to choose a theme that best suits the type of posts you do, tweak the Appearance & Settings of your blog to reflect your personality, make/use an avatar image besides the default, and then check out other established WP blogs that you might like & follow/subscribe to them or leave them comments, so that they (& their followers) will hopefully help you gain a few followers of your own. 🙂

    Good luck with your new blog! Let me know when you’re done “moving in” and getting comfy at WordPress so that I can check out more of your posts. Have fun blogging!

    WordPress IS the best blog carrier out there, and I’ve been in 3 different sites. The blog I have right now is my second with wordpress. You can tell by the blogname. They are constantly improving the site. WordPress just got the best features and updates.

    Goodluck on blogging and having more viewers. I’m sure you’ll inspire them.

  9. Honey, you just keep pouring your heart out to our Lord! He hears us and continues daily to help us along the narrow, but Abundant Way He has provided and marked for us to follow. It’s not always easy, but the good news is that He has anointed us for the hard, “difficult” times. It’s a partnership between the Lord and us: He’s not going to give up on us, and we need to make that decision to “never give up” as well. You just keep moving Forward! I know about the struggle, and can tell you it IS worth it!

    Write whatever is in your heart–you will meet some wonderful people here in the blog-writing community. I’m so glad you visited at my place–you’re welcome anytime! And I’ll be back to see you again! Know that you are loved by Our Father and Lord Jesus–and by others you may never meet face to face!

  11. I talk about God too, sometimes, on my pages and even though I think (from hints I’ve picked up) some of my readers are non-christian, I still hope they’ll take the time to read the ‘Godstuff’ and be impacted somehow. Ikm also undergoing a sort of spiritual renewal, you see. 🙂
    Praying for you as you battle your trials and the illness.

  13. PJ,
    Your blog is beautiful. Your thoughts are eloquent and honest. I know what it feels like to lose your faith. Many people go through that phase on the journey. I did. Just know that God hasn’t fallen out of love with you. He is so much closer than you think. The fact that you are journeying towards him to recover your faith has such a powerful impact on his heart. So just rest in him and allow him to reveal to you the heights, depths, width, and breadth of his unsurpassing love for you. I would recommend picking up John Eldredge’s Sacred Romance. It is a great book that touch your heart on our journey. I look forward to reading more of your post. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
