Community Pool

‘Daily Post’ in WordPress has been having a community pool every Monday where bloggers come together to give each other feedback and advice.

This is done to help bloggers gain traffic and to help them grow. If you haven’t heard of it before here is the link to it. You can check it out and join their threads.

I thought of having a community pool myself so that I can give something to you guys to help your blog grow.

While you may not even need this, if you are a profound blogger, I believe it’ll help you in some way. Also, I’ll be selecting the reblog post I do on Tuesday from my community pool. 

Here are the rules to this community pool so that it could be used to it’s maximum potential –

  • Drop a link on which you want to get feedback on. This could be a post, your website, anything you wish, but make sure it has a substantial message or question.
  • Be as specific as you can if you want to draw quality feedback.
  • Please make sure you only comment one link.  If you comment with more than one link, your comment would either not be approved or would take a longer time to be moderated. If you want to draw traffic to your website, make sure you comment with a link to your best article. 😉
  • No adult content. This is a strict no no. I’ll be checking each of the links when the comment is sent to me for moderation. Your link will definitely be deleted if it contains any adult content.
  • While you don’t have to, if you have the time please check out a few other links in the comment section and give your feedback to other bloggers who need help (specially if you’ve requested feedback too).
  • Please give polite and constructive feedback. The idea is to have fun and spread some love!

There’ll be a community pool every Friday at 6am (my time) in my blog. You can leave your links until the next community pool, after that the comment section of the previous week’s community pool will be closed.

If you aren’t a blogger, this post could help you too. You’ll have different types of recommended links to read through all in the same place. How convenient is that?

With Love.

Question Of The Week – Q8

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

My answer to last week’s question –

This is a tough one. There is religion, my family and the love of my life. However, I do firmly believe that religion and my family are something which I would never have to give up on anyway.

  • Religion – Well, of course not.
  • Family – Even if I give up on them, they’ll probably creep up on me and force me back. 😂

I guess I could go with the love that I share with the love of my life (in that case too though, he’ll probably creep up on me and force me back).

All in all, the hardest thing for me to give up on would be love itself. I am a great believer in love.

With Love.

PS – If you are new to my blog, every week I post a question for you guys to answer and I give my answer to the previous week’s question. You are more than invited to join in the fun. Cheers!

The Power Of A Common Human

Never doubt the power of a common human. If war can be the result of one person having an outbreak of terror and anger, think about the result of one person having an outbreak of love and kindness..

I read this very deep and meaningful article in MrSmilezzz’s Blog. Make sure to check it out. There’s so much more well written articles where that came from. Don’t forget to follow him!

Quote Of The Week

A simple act of caring, creates an endless ripple..

Dear Readers,

I am currently in the process of figuring out my daily schedule for my blog. As you may know, my exams are getting closer by the day and so I don’t have all the time in the world to blog. That’s why I scheduled my blog (it really is a great idea to do so).

As you can see, I’ve also added a new segment to my blog.

Quote Of The Week

I’m so excited for this segment because quotes are supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!! 😃 (Yup, I’ve always wanted to use that world on an article. ✔ed off my bucket list.)

I chose Monday for this segment. Why? What better way to start your week than with an inspiring/deep/funny quote?

Anyway, getting back to the point, here is my temporary and updated schedule.

  • Monday (Today, in case it’s not Monday for you) – Quote Of The Week Day
  • TuesdayReblog Day
  • Wednesday – Personal Write Up Day
  • ThursdayQuestion Of The Week Day
  • Friday Community Pool Day
  • Saturday – Personal Write Up Day
  • Sunday – Cheat Day (Whatever on Earth I want – including nothing)

This schedule will continue until my exams are done with (on the 19th of August). After that, I’ll probably make a new schedule for a change, even if this one works just fine.

What do you guys think about my schedule? Please let me know in the comment section below.

Cheers to spreading love, care and kindness this week!

Here’s a video which might inspire you even more to do so,

Haters Gonna Hate – Potatoes Gonna Potate

Dear Haters,

I am flattered that I’m always a trending topic in your life. I have so much more in store for you. 

Please be patient.

Sincerely,

Me.

Have you ever felt like no matter how good a person is, s/he will always have haters? 

It’s true. It is the norm these days. 

The reason behind this is because people identify themselves as their egos. For a lot of us, hate is an easy way out. Hate is easy, whereas love takes courage. 

But is hate a stronger emotion than love? 

Don’t be ridiculous. Of course not! 

The thing about love is that love is less showy. Love is slow and steady. On the contrary however, hate is obvious. Hate is loud and shrill. 

Here’s the tough one, 

What do you do when you get hate? 

  • Do you run and hide within the safety of your walls? 
  • Do you ignore the hate? 
  • Do you talk about it to someone else?
  • Do you confront the hater? OR
  • Do you keep the hate coming? 

All these are things you can do about it. Which one/s do you? 

If it is something to do behind the screen I would recommend you ignore it, talk about it to someone else or confront the hater (if you are bold enough). Whatever you are more comfortable doing.

Why? 

You can’t be running and hiding from something which is not your fault. Ignoring hate might seem like the exact same thing, but it isn’t. There is a fine line between the two. The fine line being, ignoring hate means you are a wise person. 

You can always talk about it to someone else if you aren’t strong enough to handle it on your own. Oh darling, there is nothing wrong with not being strong enough. We are all different. Our strengths, our limits, they are not the same and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. So the next time you feel like you can’t handle it, promise me you’ll talk about it to someone else? 

Wonderful! 

Confronting the hater doesn’t mean you go and whack the living daylights out of him/her. You don’t wanna do that because you’ll most probably end up in prison. 

Yes, really!

So what do you do? Go and ask the hater why s/he hates you and see if you can resolve the problem behind it. It could always be a misunderstanding. If not, ask them to not try so hard because they are only wasting their time hating you. 

Haters gonna hate, just like potatoes gonna potate. 

However, if all this hate is on screen, from your blog for instance, then what do I recommend? 

Keep them haters coming. Blow them kisses and give them a warm welcome to your blog.  

Why? 

They are going to provide you and your readers with the most hilarious, most naive comments ever! 

They think they are putting you down, but in reality they are only giving your blog more and more views than people who don’t hate you. 

All’s well, that ends well. 

Remember – 

Haters are gonna see you walk on water and say that’s because you can’t swim. 

This is all assuming you are a good person who has done nothing wrong to deserve hate. 

If not, get your shit sorted out! Don’t do things to deserve hate, that’s awful.

With Love.

Question Of The Week – Q7

What do you think would be the hardest thing for you to give up on?

My answer to last week’s question –

Roller coaster of love and compassion.

With Love.

PS – If you are new to my blog, every week I post a question for you guys to answer and I give my answer to the previous week’s question. You are more than invited to join in the fun. Cheers!

A Thank You Letter To God

Dear God,

This letter is something I’ve been wanting to write for a long long time. I’m so glad that I’m finally doing it!

Have I told you that I love you? I love you with all my heart! I am eternally grateful to you for everything you’ve done for me. Specifically though, I’m most grateful for these things you’ve done for me.

1. Thank you for making sure I was born to a Muslim family! Thank you for making it so easy for me to become a Muslim. While I do truly believe in Islam deeply, I don’t think I would have had the strength to convert to Islam from any other religion (major respect to people who’ve done so) because I wouldn’t want to become a disappointment to my family, no matter how much I believed in you. I am most eternally grateful to you for that.

2. Thank you for my amazing parents! My parents are truly the most wonderful parents ever! They have raised me up to become the lady I am with so much love and care, they are always there for me through thick and thin. While I do realize that most parents are like this to their children, my parents understand me deeply (I know a lot of children with parents who don’t understand them), and for that, I am blessed. I also see multiple cases in TV, where parents ill treat their children. Throw them away in garbage dumps when they are born, abandon them in far away places and even go to the extent of killing their own children. Thank you for giving me the privilege of being born as my parents’ child. No matter what our problems may be, no matter the struggle, it couldn’t get any better than them. 

3. Thank you for my amazing best-friend! Oh I was very careful with my word choice there, but I know you know what’s on my mind. I’m sorry that I fell in love with my best-friend if you think I shouldn’t have. It so happens that society has changed, and it’s difficult to not fall in love with someone. It’s not my parents fault. If it’s anyone’s fault, it’s mine. 100% percent. But the thing is, I know you love me more than anyone else. I know you’ll forgive me if it’s something seriously wrong. I know that my happiness means a lot to you. I am the happiest I’ve ever been when I’m with him dear God, you already know that. He has always been there for me, you already know that too. They say that everyone has a soulmate. I believe that he is my soulmate dear God. I pray every single day for your blessings to get us married and keep us together in heaven as well.

There are so much more things I am grateful for, but the list would just go on and on because I am grateful for everything you’ve done dear God. That everything is a humongous lot.

I know there are so many people who are getting more and more distant from you lately, but I promise I never will go there. I hope and pray that people will only get closer and not further apart from you.

Thank you for the gift of life! It truly is the most beautiful thing in the world.

With Love,

Just Another Believer.

The Superficial Likes

Do you ever get frustated with consecutive ‘likes’ you get by the same person at the same time?

I do.

I can’t imagine why someone would ‘like’ my articles without even reading them (I know they haven’t because you obviously can’t read 10 articles in less than a minute). It’s the most annoying thing in the world to know that people don’t even know what you are sharing, but they ‘like’ your post anyway.

I do understand that there are plenty of people who genuinely like your content and press the like button and that’s perfect. However, the problem is that, it’s so easy to like something now, that everyone likes everything.

This is a kind request to my readers. Please only ‘like’ my articles if you genuinely actually think it is good. If you have the time, please drop down a comment too because who doesn’t find comments more real than likes?

‘Likes’ have become so superficial but nevertheless so important in people’s lives. Specially among young teenagers and young adults, and specially in social media like Facebook and Instagram.

Why? Well, what I feel is that people aren’t confident in their own skin. They have this constant need to get validation from other people about how good they look and what they are doing with their lives.

There is a thirst for social media acceptance. It has gone so far that there’s people who actually skip the wait and straight out ask you or drop a hint asking you to like their status or picture. Have you not experienced that?

Facebook has made it so that we can like almost anything, photos, posts, comments and even what the other person says in a conversation. In the near future it’ll even have an option where you can like a person on Facebook. How absurd is that?

I guess we are all guilty of at least one point in our lives checking our phones only a minute after we post something on social media just to see how many likes we’ve managed to accumulate.

While you can’t really say no to that habit immediately, given the norm of the society, I think it’s important that we all grow up and realise that there’s more important things to do with our lives than accumulate likes. It’s important to know that we don’t need the approval or validation of other people to be happy about who we are.

With Love.
