    • Those blogs have been quiet for some time. I was trying to organize my poems by theme. And many do not read or like my writings about certain subjects, and people leave this blog. Which is fine. But then when a good poem rolls around, they miss it, and i feel lonely knowing they might have enjoyed that one. I am not consistent at all with style. Blogs that consistently put out similar works are more successful than hodge-podge blogs like mine. But i am ok with that. I do mourn the loss of followers. With that said, I am increasingly comfortable in โ€œmeโ€ and not wishing to be nothing… or rather not made to feel i am nothing,

      • So, a lot of what i am posting on Borderline, would normally go on one of my other blogs… its hard to be me. I confuse myself! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜” And once moved to Boston, I am unsure just how much i will be blogging. It can all change again. I was working on my Bachelorโ€™s degree while blogging… i have lots of down time now, so i feel it with writing. Thatโ€™s a long explanation and not even near the clearest explanation, but the gist of it!! Thanks for the follows. I wish i could be more consistent so i didnt confuse people. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ•Š๐ŸŽถ

      • U know itโ€™s difficult to write only about 1 theme :/ and yes, some ppl leave. Even my blog and I think: what a heck peeps? wasnโ€™t it funny? No? …I even got blocked (ouch, many times, bcz of my texts…itโ€™s amazing Iโ€™m barely using a really โ€œbadโ€ words…but anyway ppl sees me like some kinda freak ๐Ÿ˜‚)
        I like your hodgepodge lol but maybe bcz I read Byron when I was 11 …still I find your style very archaic:) but I believe thereโ€™s a โ€˜nicheโ€™ in this writing-world for everyone who want to write or who canโ€™t live without writing…
        If u believe in yourself and if u love your writing โœ๏ธ- nothing matter ๐Ÿ™‚ & weโ€™ll find ur โ€˜readerโ€™ ๐Ÿ™‚ heโ€™s def out there waiting …haha to be found? :))

        • The greatest struggle is letting others respond to your creative output. I am learning to dissociate from my works. Allowing them freedom from the clutch of the artist gives them a chance to dance on their own. Poems are like children… we give the work all of us, pray and send them on their way. If they come crawling back, we know they are hurt and need to be loved back to health. I like your blog because its so original. We all start to look and sound the same… then voila! Ray shines through!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑโœจ๐Ÿ’ซ

          I know about blocking… i was talking to someone about this and he didnt have an answer. I am too damn sensitive!!! Thats the answer!!! I need to chill. Not everyone is going to like or appreciate us as artists. Its ok! Its you! So be you!! There are more than enough people who love your stuff…. even if only one friend, we should be happy. But we feed off acceptance and wonder why that poem got 100 likes and mine 10. I have read some damn good poems lately with three likes. What??? And others with 88 likes that i hated. Oh, harsh, but truth. Its all perception. And perhaps mob mentality. Is the person known more? Groupie girls fawning at guys? Psychologically its a game. Were the Beatles better musicians than Joplin? Not necessarily. There are lots of reasons.

          Thatโ€™s a lot of chatter!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ look forward to reading more…

          happy writing โœ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ•Š๐ŸŽถ

          • it was a cool matching: crawling back poems vs dancing poems :)) who would win?.. we never know!
            Oh I dont think my blog is so different, its just I dont know what Im good at, so writing – anything! or everything haha ๐Ÿ™‚ from poetry to crime and erotica.
            And true, not everybody is going to like our writings, but I feel the most important – our love ๐Ÿ™‚
            About likes, gosh it is everywhere, but I think (probably, not sure) those peeps with 100 likes got great marketing skills lol or maybe the world is totally mad haha
            I believe we have our own way! and we are moving forward only! never give up! :))

            • I love your book reviews. The most entertaining reviews I have read. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽˆ So, that makes you shine! โœจ๐Ÿ’ซ and not in a negative way. Only positive vibes!! Is it Saturday already… by you? ๐Ÿป heading out to a charity event for Easter Seals tonight! BINGO! ๐Ÿ˜‚ i have won something almost every year. Maybe again? ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถโœ๐ŸผJ
