Message # 5 – Stream of Consciousness

Hello friends, I just have a stream of consciousness for you today because I don’t have time for my usual Friday post.

If you don’t know I’m doing a PhD and I have an annual review today. Although I’m nervous, I’m very excited to discuss my research. Here is a sneak peek at my presentation:

This week I reached 200 followers on this platform and I am forever grateful for each one of you. This community is supportive, creative, and completely kind. My whole life is consumed by writing and although I’m 28 years young, I only realised that 2 years ago. This platform is the place for me.

Whether I post a fictional story, a rant about traffic or simply a healing post on my mental illness, you are all wonderfully complementary.

It is people like you that make this world a healthy place for the imagination. Your simple acts of kindness whether that be a comment on my blog or something in your day to day life, is revolutionary.

If I ever make it to 500 followers I’ll do another collaborative post like my 100th follower post. Today though, all I have for you is gratitude and humility. We lift each other up, and no success is won alone.

Thank you,

Jaycee.

Message # 4 – Nearing 200 Followers

Hello friends. As I near the 200 follower milestone, I would like to first thank you all for joining me. The knowledge that even one person would experience joy from my work always inspires me to push on.

There are some fun posts planned for the coming months but until then we shall bask in the glory of all our collective talents.

When I reach 500 followers I will do another post like my 100 followers post. So in preparation, if you would like to contribute and be a part of that just comment below, or email me on thinkingmoonblog@gmail.com

We’re looking for inspirational comments, people you look up to or even just images that sparks your imagination.

In this way we make the achievement not just about me, but about all the wonderful people this community is made up of.

Love,

Jaycee xxx

Message #3 – Blogger Recognition Award!

Before we go anywhere I would like to extend my warm thank you and gratitude to Oh Yes, They Did, for the award.

Please go check out their page and follow them, you won’t be sorry. You’ll find delicious recipes, fun crafts, and sometimes just some sage advice you didn’t even know you needed.

How This Blog Began:

In the beginning, as a young girl, I wanted to be a teacher. Then my English teacher gave me praise and guidance. That gave me the confidence to be a writer.

When I started this blog I had my lifelong dream in mind and finally, I threw off the shackles of imposter syndrome. I signed up to this wonderful website, and everything changed.

Surrounded by amazing fellow writers and creators, I’m no longer afraid of my irrelevance. Each day I see the value of individuality. I spend more time looking up to my fellow bloggers than worrying about whether or not I deserve to be here.

I’ve spoken here about my mental illness and how my words are magic, and I stand by that. Whatever the reason for starting your blog you are joining a wonderfully supportive community and you won’t regret it.

Peace and love,

J.C ‘Jaycee’ Lynch

Advice For New Bloggers

  • Writing is magic, you can communicate with someone you never met by putting words on a page. Remember this and you will always delight in your writing.
  • You are wonderful, important, and your voice deserves to be heard, never feel as though you’re not relevant.
  • If you’re not enjoying the writing process, it means your writers won’t enjoy it. Write something you would relish in reading and you’ll be golden.
  • Finally, whatever you do, never give up. Write even when you think it’s poor, it will clear your brain out, and the good ideas will come back around. 😉

“Wonderful milestone achieved! Short and simple one to contribute, but full of meaning for me particularly “Stumbling is not falling”. Most commonly attributed to Malcom X, but has roots in an Haitian proverb circa 1854 and has been repeated throughout history in numerous other proverbs and poems, French, English and American. The sentiment remains the same in them all – a stumble is not a fall, you pick up your pace and continue on, recover from it and persevere.”

Congrats… my favourite quote is by
Emily Brontë: “I have dreamed in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they have gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.”

Hi Jen!

Thanks for dropping me a line. What a great idea and congrats on 100 subscribers!

“If you have to choose between being kind and being right, choose to be kind and you’ll always be right.”

Love that quote but I have no idea who to attribute it to! (I guess you could just put ‘Anonymous’) 

Is that okay? 

Very best wishes,

Steven

Hi Jen,

My blog is Skeptical Empath.  This is the quote that comes to mind if you want to use it….

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

― Buckminster Fuller

It looks like Denmark was a fun time.  🙂
