I Am Back Everyone!

Hello everyone, hope all is going well. I just want to say that I am back on WordPress and ready to resume to my daily blogging routine. I had to take a short break for a few weeks off and on from the daily grind and catch up on so much work and working on a few things in my life, plus been so occupied with family, friends and other responsibilities and that will keep going on and will not stop as my responsibilities have increased, but I have learned a lot to time management and its really great to see. I have received so many messages from fans, followers, and so many others and I appreciate it all. I would like to thank Those who have given me energy to do what I love to do, which is writing and in the next few days I will be writing a lot more and I will be sharing a lot of surprises coming your way.

I am really excited to be working with a printing company which they create banners, advertising, and all sorts of other things and they really love what they see on my blog site and they love the flow of the writing I do, and so they want me to blog for them and I accepted. Blogging is such a powerful tool and the more searchable you are, the more you write, the more you engage will give you so much exposure to the world, and you may never know who catches your blog and starts reading it. It can be your big break. I am really excited to be starting this new chapter in my life, making income, saving up for future, and doing things for myself. I am so happy I was noticed this way.

Thank you to those who believe in me and who want the best for me. I love you all so much and I want the same for you all too. Wishing you all the best, health, success and so much more. Blessings to all. Will be resuming to my writing again tomorrow.

Reading Reviews Online – Some Can Be True or False

Do you often read reviews and do your research online before you travel, buy products, call a certain service company, and other goods and services? Nowadays there are people who plague the internet with fake reviews and falsifying information with different usernames and post reviews from unknown areas, and we should be careful when reading reviews. Some people get paid to write them, some people who have never even traveled or experienced a product or something, they try to find review sites and go with what other people are saying and they do research online before writing a review and some are so good with their craft of fooling people who you do not know the difference between fake or real.

There are ways to detect a fake review. If people exaggerate too much, drag on, and come up with very strange usernames and the way people write. You have to really read between the lines. To me personally I do not trust online reviews and I barely and rarely even read them, why? because in the end everyone is entitled to their own opinions, and I would rather go experience something on my own or when I buy a product to experience it and to try it for myself. If I am going to listen to every person, and read all these reviews, I won’t go anywhere, I won’t try anything. It is so important to try to stay away from reviews. You don’t know if you are reading a real or fake one. Some you cannot even detect on it because they wrote it so well. Some get paid and some go over the top because they are asked to. Some are so good at what they do and they persuade you so much, and do you often read online testimonials? A lot of these reviews come from a lot of researchers online, there are people who do all sorts of things to get some money, but I think it is wrong to give false reviews, and praising companies that should not even exist, and praising and giving a good name to places that should not even be in our world, but they are and they fool people with false advertising.

Have you ever been a victim of it? Do you read reviews and determine whether or not to purchase or to fly anywhere or to go to a resort or hotel? Do you believe in everything you read on review sites? I personally don’t and I don’t take them seriously. Yes although some can be real by individuals who write it, but in my opinion, I would steer away from those things. I am a person who likes to experience and give my own opinion, rather than listening to so many others who can be lying about something. Remember the internet can be misleading, it can be misinterpreted and so many people can understand things differently. I guess that is how it is in this life right? Prevent yourself from being fooled and just try it and experience it for yourself. There is nothing wrong in that. All the best to you.

What to Write About – Suggestions Needed From My Readers

Hello everyone, Hope all is going well in your neck of the woods. I am going to keep this short and sweet today as I have been trying to compile a list of topics, issues and subjects to write about and I want to ask my readers what they think I should talk about, what I can contribute to the internet, what I can discuss with my readers, fans, family and everyone.  something that would be interesting and something that needs to be talked about, written about and to share with everyone. Your opinions, suggestions matter to me a lot, and I value it very much. Now if you like to privately e-mail me about something you want to talk about, click on my contact me link on top and you can find my e-mail there. Your suggestions will be kept completely anonymous. I am not sure when I will be writing all the topics suggested to me but very soon after You will see your suggestion topics written about.

I am open to discuss whatever and all topics and suggestions are important to me.

Thank you all and all the best to everyone.

I Am Back Everybody! I Have Missed You All!

Hello Everyone,

I hope all is well with everyone, I haven’t posted on WordPress for a few days now, and I apologize for not being able to. A lot of new things have been happening in my life and its become a lot more busier then it was before, but I can assure you, that I will not be missing another day of blogging again after today. I am going to make sure I have something written in my blog everyday. I will take more time to do what I love to do and its writing and blogging and being involved in social media and interacting with everybody. On top of my life becoming so busy, I had the most terrible cold I have ever had in my life. It was quite scary because I could not even get out of bed, but now I am feeling a lot better and I am able to go on with my day, duties, responsibilities and more. A few of my fans have messaged me privately asking me if I was okay and everything and they were really worried. I am great. No worries. Thank you for asking and being concerned. All the best to you all. Now I am back and getting back into the swing of things, being updated, and checking my e-mails, and getting back into the social media world, catching up on news and everything. Now if you would like to see me discuss, talk and write about any topic, subject, issue or anything, please feel free to write your suggestions and I will keep a list of things to talk about, and I will write about it. Thanks again, and all the best to you all.

You Are Special! Never Forget it! Always Remind Yourself Everyday

In recent years due to the uncertainty and all the negativity, hopeless attitudes that is filled in this society we often forget how special and how incredible each and everyone of us are. We are all unique in our own little ways. Why don’t people just think of the qualities they have rather than bashing ourselves and degrading ourselves to an all time low? It is very easy to get out of context and insult ourselves. I have seen that happen in so many ways. I attend a bible study and tonight it was no surprise to me that a friend of mine came up to me and said that Oh I don’t think I am good at it, and putting that persons self down. I had to intervene and I had to stop him in his tracks and say hey were all special and we all have something or somethings were good at only if we discover ourselves.

A few blog posts ago, I spoke about the same type of thing, but You are your own enemy if you bring yourself down and you start hating yourself and you shouldn’t. Love yourself, get to know your capabilities, get to know your habits a lot more. It is really interesting what you might find.

So readers, I am going to give you a mini assignment, and I want this assignment to benefit you and your life. You are not doing this for me, or for anybody else, you are doing it for you. Now, I want you to take out a paper and a pen or pencil or whatever and I want you to write 10 things great and special about you, then it is totally up to you if you want to share it with me or keep it confidential to yourself. Now that paper that you wrote those 10 good things about you, post them somewhere visible in your room, kitchen, fridge door, wherever you are mostly in your home and keep reading them, then use those good things in your life. I guarantee you, that your life will change, and if you say you do not have anything to write or good to say about yourself, that is a huge lie. You are lying to yourself, and you do not want to do that. So the moral of this story is you are special and you are someone who has good qualities.

There is no due date on the assignment. take your time, spare time for you and you will see. It works wonders.

SO REPEAT AFTER ME — I AM SPECIAL, I AM CAPABLE, I AM UNIQUE LIKE NO OTHER, I LOVE MYSELF, AND I WILL NOT PUT MYSELF DOWN AGAIN!

YOU ARE SPECIAL YOU ARE SPECIAL YOU ARE SPECIAL YOU ARE SPECIAL!

How Committed Are You To Blogging? Do You Blog Daily?

In this day in age blogging has become a big sensation in the world and one of the top leading parts of social media. Blogging is a language where people talk about feelings, promote, talk about products, share recipes, share life experiences, travel experiences, educating the world, giving opinions, it gives a sense of entitlement about subjects, topics, and discussing and sharing with the world our beliefs, talents, beauty, fashion, medical, health, benefits, tips, tricks, and giving the world ideas and introducing ourselves and families among other important things of the world. Some of us making blogging part of our lives everyday, some blog daily, some blog bi-weekly, some blog, weekly, a few times and make it a part of life. Some people commit their lives as for some it is a career path they choose to take with journalism, writing, and blogging for perspective newspaper, television news companies. Some like it as a hobby or interest everyday or when they get a chance to write.

Now, How committed are you to blogging? Do you blog daily? Do you blog a couple or few times a week? Or a few times a month? On average how much do you spend time on blogging? Is blogging a part of your life or is it something that you do on your leisure time? Do you take time to blog even when life is so incredibly busy and fast paced? For me blogging is a commitment, but I do not let it take over my life. I don’t spend too long on my blog per day. Maybe about 1-2 hours a day to perfect, and to come up with different topics a day, then I start to write. It is very therapeutic for me. I love blogging and it gives me time to share my ideas, interests, and introduce myself, about merely everything that comes to my mind on that certain day, following the latest news in the world, and everyday, I take a list and I come up with the best topic to write about, and then sometimes when I do not have anything to write, I just post up a recipe of mine and I do not like to keep any of my blogging days blank such as when I go away on vacation for a week or when I am not able to get online, I do my blogs before hand and I work on them as much as I am able to and schedule my blogs for days when I am not able to blog.

I never like to miss a day in my blogging. When I know I won’t have time to get on my blog, I always make sure that day is filled with something. I love it very much. I am committed to it and its something that I like to give back to my fans, readers, supporters, family and friends from all over the place. Thank you so much for always giving me a boost and I wish everybody all the best with everything. My blog couldn’t have been possible without you all and I thank you all and appreciate it very much. Much love goes out to all of you.

You Are Special! Never Forget it!

Went Through My Childhood Diary – Did You Have One?

Since I was a child, I bought a diary to write my most private thoughts, used it to draw pictures of hearts, sun, stick figurines, and more. I just came across my diary this morning. I haven’t opened it up in more than 13 years. I cannot believe the things I had written and done in there. I forgot some of the things too, but It totally refreshed my memory. I remember I made a goal to write into it about my daily life, but I didn’t get to do it. I remember how I used it to draw mostly and I used to be intrigued by eyebrow shapes, so I used to create eyebrow shapes, I used to draw the beach, and the shore, because when I was little at 7-8 years of age, I had taken my first trip out to the beach and flying too, so I put all those in my Diary. I stopped writing and drawing in my diary when I was about 12 years old, and when I turned 13, I stopped playing with dolls and barbies too. Now as I look back into my Diary there were so many things I wrote about my school crushes, about the people I liked, people I didn’t like, and I wrote about how people used to really bully me because I was different then everyone else, and I never used to let anybody read and see my diary. I always kept it in a private place in my room that not even my mom could find it.

Now, I have my diary in one of my memories boxes and sometimes I take it out to just look and see what I have, and sometimes I forget what I have. So its really nice to spend some time to look at past memories and see how big of a difference in time there is. I love diaries, I love keeping these things because its a sentimental value to me and all the memories that are filled in those diaries and memorable things I kept from the past. I still have not shown it to anyone and I probably never will, but maybe I will in the long run. Lets see what happens. In the last one to two years of writing in my diary those coloured gel pens, hybrid, neon coloured pens came out and everyone started having them, so I decided I want some too, so I had a big collection of them and I started writing letters, diaries, and everything with that. I made friends from when I went to Daytona Beach, Florida and they came from England back in 1997-1998, and I started to write to them with these gel pens and we kept writing to each other back and forth for about 4 years and then that is when e-mail came to place and then we kept in touch from then on.

It is pretty neat on how time plays a big impact on how diaries, letters are written, and now our diary is our blog and virtually and technology has evolved a lot since then. How many of you have had diaries when you were little? Do you still have them now? Do you know anybody who still writes in a journal book? I don’t know how many do, but now blogging, and writing journals online has changed the way diaries are written, and to me, nothing beats writing and using imagination in hand written diaries, decorating it, arts and crafts. Although writing a blog online and on a computer also has its greatness, but really, nothing beats being crafty and doing hands on things. How about you?

 

Blogging Is Something Therapeutic For Me – You Don’t Need To Be An Expert Writer

In this life now, social media, blogging and tweeting are on the rise. A lot of us out there blog, tweet, and are on so many social media websites, and I find blogging to be therapeutic for me. I feel like this is one of the only ways I get to express myself, my feelings and the way I see things in the world. I know and admit that I am not an expert in writing, and I know that I need to fix where punctuation goes and stuff, but I am working on it, but to have a blog, you don’t need to be an expert writer. A blog is a place where people of course express how they feel about a situation, having to share with the world what happens, sharing opinions, suggestions, advice, and among so many things. I feel the need to express myself in my blogs and the only way I know how to sometimes. I like knowing that I blog everyday about everything. I like writing about so many topics, recipes, current events, social, social media, social networking, and among so many things. I am not perfect and I do make mistakes, I’ve done things I haven’t been proud of, but I am sure a lot of us have been through that road and that path at one point or another. I find blogging to be a whole new interface of expressing opinions and ones feelings and I feel great doing it. I just wish everyone understood my point of view. I feel proud of my accomplishments with blogging, I feel good about achieving my goals to strive to make this world a better place, with more happier people and for people to smile, have this incredible positivity and to get people to feel great about themselves. It is very important to me and I mean it from the bottom of my heart. I want the best for everyone. Blogging is something that is very important to me in my life. It is something I feel that I am great at doing.

A Social networking guru and a person who is a social media expert once said to me at a Seminar I attended about Social media, is that everyone should have a blog. It doesn’t matter what it is about, it is very nice to have a blog and to write. He said you do not have to be an expert and professional at writing. It is something that each and everyone of us should do. He said you could write everyday, once a week or couple of times a week, but he said have a blog, and make it whatever you want it to be and go with it. I feel the same way. I will never forget the way I felt when I first started to blog. It was pretty nerve wracking at first and I was pretty nervous to start one because I would be sharing myself with the world, and I do admit I was scared at first, but then after my first week, it wasn’t so bad, and I kept writing and writing. It was something I couldn’t stop and I actually enjoyed my writing, I actually enjoyed interacting with so many people on the internet and sharing point of views. I remember how nervous I was, but then now I am not anymore. It is such a beautiful thing. Even though I am not a perfect writer, but I feel like I get my points across the way I see fit and the way I want to portray my blog and myself. I feel great blogging. I never like to keep things bottled up inside and when I blog it is a totally new twist among everything. I have worked so hard and come this far. Some people ask how I do it everyday and how I commit to blogging everyday with daily life, I answer it simply by saying it is therapeutic for me and I look at it like Its my life and a big part of my life. I have received a lot of opportunities doing this and it feels great. A lot of professors, doctors, priests, and so many other people have come to my blog.

Blogging is an interesting world. When people search for keywords a blog shows up automatically on search engine websites. It depends on how you want to be searched and it depends on how comfortable you are sharing your blog with the world. I mean why not? Its an amazing world and I enjoy blogging. I love it.

What about you? What does blogging mean for you? What has it done for you? How does it impact your life? Would love to hear from you.

All the best in everything.

Needing Topics To Blog About – Suggestions Are Welcome

Hey everyone, I know as writers and bloggers it can be difficult to come up with topics to write everyday, and I think that is one of the most difficult challenges we as writers face. Today, I have hit a crossroad and my mind is not choosing to write about a topic today as I do everyday and have not missed a day since Beginning of November, 2011. Right now I am at a stand still and time to ask my fans, family, friends, readers, blog followers, about writing new topics, what you would like to see me write about that I have not already, what you think is important to write about, among raising awareness on other issues that need addressing. I would love to hear from you and your opinions and suggestions on future topics. I already have made a list of topics to write about, but I need more. Please describe the topic as well and what you would like to see in my future blogs.

Things to do with Society, Social scenes, more on prevention of bullying and bullies, relationships, and much more.

Here are the following type of topics, that I will not write about because I feel that I do not want to get into topics that I am not familiar with:

Politics, Gender profiling, and Same-Sex Relationships…
All other topics are welcomed. Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing your opinions and topics. All the best!

If You Have Nothing Nice To Say To Someone, Don’t Say Anything At All

In the last few weeks, I have been getting rude, snide, obscene, and cruel comments directed toward my blogs I write. I am doing my best to give out positivity to people all around the world, I am doing my best to encourage people to be happy in their lives, to think and feel optimistic and among so many things. I do not appreciate all that whaling and penalizing me for NOT being “The Perfect Writer” or the “Perfect Responder” Every time. I do read each and everyone’s comments and when I get to reply to them I will. People need to start looking in the mirror and analyze ones blog before penalizing and criticizing other peoples blogs. I like sharing my stories, my opinions and the way I see things in life and what I see in the society today. I have seen it all out there. I am a very social person and whenever an event comes, I go to it and I see different personalities all the time.

I don’t find it fair at all to have to open up my e-mail everyday to find people commenting on my blog on how poorly it is written, when it is not because I know a lot of people and people I don’t even know who darn well think it is wonderful and written from the heart. Nobody is perfect in this world, nobody. I don’t appreciate those who think they are all that and who think they are so perfect in everything and those who think they can run their mouth with terrible remarks all the time. I am sure not perfect, and I make mistakes, and I admit on doing them. It takes a lot to admit mistakes, but some people don’t have the guts to admit that obviously. If people do not have anything nice to say to others, people shouldn’t say anything at all. Yes sometimes rude and cruel comments are needed to have someone improve on their writings and stuff, but there is a way to write to someone, there is always a respectful and good manner to write to someone with.

I know a lot of people have written respectfully toward me, and I appreciate that and I have read and acknowledged them, but there are those who are the total opposite and go all haywire on me and write things I find not to be fair at all. I am tired of people running their mouths like they are so high and mighty in front of their computer or laptop screens. I love to write everyday because it is something I am passionate about and what I am committed to. I have a lot of things in my life and I want to share them with everyone, but not everything I will share though. Only things that matter to me. You know how many blogs I have written about positivity, optimism, being happy, and having self-confidence? I don’t ever want to hurt anybody, and I don’t like to yell at people and keep telling people what to do, but people need to read my blogs because it serves a purpose and that purpose is something that I want to do to better this world, and to give people that encouragement, hope, and good feelings about life and I want people to be more happy. You all are special in my eyes and each one of you have many talents and everything. Each one of us have something good to offer in this world.

I just want the best for everyone, and I want to make that difference in the world. I am sorry I haven’t replied back, and you guys are right about that, but I don’t need to hear it all the time, I do realize it and I will improve on that, I will. I need to have a lot of time to do it and when I do, I will. I do not need to be reminded everyday. Thank you and all the best to everyone. I love you all, and I appreciate you all.

 

 

 

The Armenia Tree Project — Greening Armenia Since 1994

Just a few years ago, I discovered a vibrant and wonderful program called The Armenia Tree Project, and right away subscribed and became a member. The Armenia Tree Project is something that is very important for Armenia. Nearly 60,000 trees were planted in Armenia’s towns, villages, rural areas, family backyards, in front of churches and other historical monuments and historical structures that make it bloom more. The community tree planting has restored over 1.1 million trees in Armenia and Artsakh. To this day, they will continue to restore forests to make it vibrant and beautiful. Armenia is a beautiful country and it is mountainous. Armenia has beautiful winding roads that lead to a church there, and a church here, and every turn there is always something to see, whether its mountains, or historical monument, statue, and so much more. Armenia’s Agriculture, Forestation and environment is so beautiful and the Armenia tree project is doing their best to make sure Armenia is taken care of.

Armenia and Armenians have faced challenges of the past with the Armenian Genocide of April 24, 1915 committed by the Ottoman Turks of Turkey with killing 1.5 million Armenians and plus the 1988 Earthquake of December which killed about 25,000 people and did a lot of damage, and so the Armenia Tree Project helped restore a country who has been through it all. The main mission to this beautiful project is to make Armenia vibrant which it already has been and to protect the future of the environment, nature conservancy, and provide care and greatness to our beautiful Armenia.

Thank you to Jeff Masarjian for your incredible and beautiful spirit and to all those involved into this, thank you to the donations given by so many people, thank you for all the efforts made to make Armenia whole again.

For more information in regards to this beautiful project, please visit — http://www.armeniatree.org and there you can see photos, and get more in touch with My Motherland Armenia.
