Interview with Stephanie Lewis

photo1. First of all, tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am one of those people who can’t remember a time when I didn’t write or dream of being a writer. In preschool, when other kids were into staying in the lines in their coloring books, I used to cut up construction paper into little squares, staple it together to make my version of a paperback, and then print my toddler gibberish in them. I also made my own neighborhood newspaper out of wrapping paper and called it “The Stephanie Scribbler” which I left on the entire block’s front porch weekly. And then I went through a phase where I would cover up the famous author names on the classic novels I was assigned to read in English class, and substitute my own name instead. There I would be, walking around, proudly carrying a book that proclaimed, “Aesop’s Fables” or “Grimm’s Fairytales” by Stephanie Lewis. But now I’m (much) older and I haven’t plagiarized anyone else’s work recently! Oh and the other mundane details about myself – – I am divorced, a mother of six, and reside in San Diego, California where I work as a freelance writer. Continue reading

How to write a great blog post

First, I’d like to say that there is no how-to guide or recipe for writing a brilliant post. That being said, I’d also like to point out the fact that some posts seem to perform better than others, but there’s no norm here. Lists and guides usually receive more comments and likes than “normal” blogs.

Impossible journeys

one_wordWhen I first started this blog back in April 2012 I had absolutely no plan whatsoever. I had tried blogging for a few weeks back in January 2011, but it didn’t work out because I couldn’t find any readers.

The thing is, the Internet is pretty much a bizarre world. Yes, you’ve got millions and millions of people, so the potential is there, but at the same time you can’t stop asking yourself how on Earth are all these people going to find you among so many others who are doing kind of the same thing?

So, instead of focusing your time and energy on what you’re doing, you keep trying to find something unique and brilliant, something no one else has ever thought of doing before. Continue reading

On Blogging

bloggingI’ve been blogging for little over two years now. It’s been fun. I’ve got the chance to connect with people from all over the world and learn new stuff. Also, I kind of realized my words matter.

But the guy who’s sitting in his chair, staring at his computer screen, asking himself whether or not to start a blog might be wondering if he has something to say. Continue reading

“To love” is an acquired skill

romanceFalling in love is easy. Too easy sometimes. We fall in love with someone who’s a little bit different than all the others we have met before, we fall in love when someone tells us something new about ourselves. we fall in love with the way someone acts or talks, we fall in love with people who have traits that are similar or exactly the opposite of ours.

There are just about a million different reasons why we fall in love. Continue reading
