Blog: Mind of a Diva

Jennifer Baker’s blog is self-hosted on WordPress.

DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?

Jennifer Baker (JB): Mind of a Diva serves as a vessel that’s redefining what it means to be a diva through the life and thoughts of a woman in her twenties. There is so much that we have to deal with as we make the transition from childhood into adulthood, and this is my story along with those of the people around me.

The word Diva has held many meanings, mostly it has described a woman how is bossy and has an attitude. While a diva may have those attributes, she is more than that. A diva is independent, strong, virtuous, and busy. With all of the things that she has going on she maintains her composure and makes it happen.

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Mind of a Diva?

JB: I really go off of what’s going on around me with my friends, family, and myself or what I’m thinking about. I also like to pull topics from articles or books that I read that fit into what Mind of a Diva is about.

DCSME: How is Mind of a Diva different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

JB: I think that it discusses real issues and thoughts that young women experience. Young Women are not always concerned with celebrity news, social media, and other things that main stream magazines advertise. There needs to be more substance out there and about real topics and issues, and that what Mind of a Diva does.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

JB: I love getting out the words and thoughts that I have and putting them out there for the world to read. The most fulfilling part is seeing that someone else relates and understands where I’m coming from when they read my post.

DCSME: How often do you update Mind of a Diva?

JB: I update the site at least two to three times a week. Usually Monday through Friday and sometimes on Saturday.

DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?

JB: Mind of a Diva is about everyone woman seeing the power and beauty within herself. I want the website to be a place where women can find post that relate to them and what they are going through.

UK Blogger: Jackie Swift

Blogger: Jackie Swift

Blog: Jactherat – Ephemera, lies & chocolate

Jackie Swift’s blog is on WordPress.com.

DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?

Jackie Swift (JS): I blog about writing and books, lifestyle and education; I include poetry, recipes and short stories. It is a wide ranging blog covering the many areas of life I am interested in. There’s (almost) something for everyone!

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Jactherat – Ephemera, lies & chocolate?

JS: I’ve been called Jac the Rat for a few years, as I was born in the Chinese Year of the Rat. It was also the label I used for dress making. I love the word Ephemera, it covers a wide range of sins, which I think links well to the range of topics I cover in my blog. We all love chocolate and we all lie. I am exploring lies and secrets as part of my PhD studies in Literature.

DCSME: How is Jactherat – Ephemera, lies & chocolate different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

JS: My blog is wide ranging, and deliberately so. I would feel too constrained by one area. There are other such blogs around, but I think my advantage is that I write from both the heart and experience. I try to be positive and life affirming, as well as using humour, which I think sets me apart.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

JS: I love the freedom to write what I am passionate about. I like responses from my readers and that my audience is growing all the time. I love writing and this is a great way to explore different topics, as well as refine and develop my writing skills. I love that you know you are being read.

DCSME: How often do you update Jactherat – Ephemera, lies & chocolate?

JS: I try to up-date twice a week – Saturday and mid-week. When I’m on holidays I blog more – my head is freer and I have more time, obviously.

DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?

JS: I’m completing a novel for my PhD, called Ophelia, watch out for it! I’m finalising a travel e-book for an English publisher. I currently have a collection of short stories available as e-book – entitled Life Happens

Blogger: Curtez Riggs

Blog: Life After The Army

Curtez Riggs’s blog is self-hosted on WordPress.

DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?

Curtez Riggs (CDR): Life After The Army, introduces the concepts of personal branding to Service Members preparing to transition from the Military. We’re helping them to take baby steps, while translating their experiences into a format that’s relevant to today’s job market.

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Life After The Army?

CDR: Over the years, I’ve watched several of my peers leave the military totally unprepared for the civilian sector. Of course, they’ve been through ACAP, and all of the other mandatory transition programs; understand how to write a resume, and can sit at attention during a potential interview. They’re just as prepared as the rest of the unemployed veterans actively seeking employment… The problem is that because they were unable to stand out, their resumes got lost in the shuffle.

DCSME: How is Life After The Army different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

CDR: Most of the other Personal Branding Blogs offer assistance to the general public. We’re providing needed information to Service Members and Veterans in a language that they understand, without a pitch… We’re finding that our content is better received because we’re walking in the shoes of other Service Members.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

CDR: Knowing that there’s someone out there taking notes and applying the lessons learned from my blog. I enjoy receiving emails; more so emails from readers who are interested in learning more. It helps validate our work at Life After The Army.

DCSME: How often do you update Life After The Army?

CDR: We will be updating the blog every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning. We like to give our followers something relevant to read before they begin their day.

DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?

CDR: I’ve been serving in the US Army since 1997. Currently I work out of Fort Meade, MD serving as a Master Trainer for the Baltimore Recruiting Battalion.

Blog: The Miss Mae Site

Miss Mae’s blog is on Blogspot.

DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?

Miss Mae (MM): It is my author blog/site which showcases my books. Not only that but since I created my own covers, and create for other authors and for Publishing by Rebecca J. Vickery, I use it as a vehicle for designing income. Plus, I love animals and dedicate a whole page to “Doggy Tales”, stories submitted by readers/pet owners.

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for The Miss Mae Site?

MM: Since it’s to showcase my work, it was easy. 🙂

DCSME: How is The Miss Mae Site different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

MM: It’s quite personal, I think, as I designed my header banner and chose a background/theme to highlight the genre I write. (Romantic mystery) Think “it was a dark and stormy night…” type of atmosphere. 🙂

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

MM: I love the Doggy Tales feature as this draws in all kinds of unique readers. Hearing about the different stories of how we came to be pet owners is heartwarming and rewarding.

Blog: Kitchen Table Politics with Momma Politico: Politics for The Rest of Us

Perry MacNeil’s blog is self-hosted on WordPress.

DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?

Perry MacNeil (PM): Kitchen Table Politics looks at the “kitchen table” issues we all deal with, and what the politicians are doing to help the middle/working class and the 99%. I sort through how the actions of politicians affect us all while we try to make ends meet, keep our job and home, and try to find a way to send our kids to college.

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Kitchen Table Politics with Momma Politico: Politics for The Rest of Us?

PM: My blog has evolved over the years, from mommy blog to political opinion, and now to analysis of what the politicos are doing that affects families that’s kind of an extension of my segments on A World of Progress Radio. The longer I blogged, the more I saw that no one was taking national politics and talking about how it affects my family and our kitchen table issues. So I thought it was about time for someone to make sense of it all for the rest of us.

DCSME: How is Kitchen Table Politics with Momma Politico: Politics for The Rest of Us different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

PM: I’m a teacher and a mom of two kids. We’re struggling with a home that’s upside-down, my husband’s industry is downsizing, and we have two kids soon to be ready for college. I know about the struggles of working class folks like us. We’ve had those conversations about how to pay for everything and still have grocery money, and hoping that the kids don’t outgrow their school clothes until the end of the month. I have family in Afghanistan, and my sister was just laid off, and friends have had to walk away from their homes. These issues are real to me, and I want to hold accountable the folks who are squeezing the middle class.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

PM: I love the interaction with my readers, sharing experiences, frustrations and joys. I like knowing that my ideas extend farther than my own kitchen table, and maybe will have an influence on the kitchen table of other families. I truly enjoy rallying folks around a cause and knowing that someone’s clearer on what’s being done to us, or in our name by corporations, the rich, or the politicos in their pockets. And maybe, just maybe, it’ll motivate others to fight the good fight as well. Together there is nothing we can’t accomplish.

DCSME: How often do you update Kitchen Table Politics with Momma Politico: Politics for The Rest of Us?

PM: I aim for a weekly post, although with work and family, it’s about one post for every 1 1/2 weeks.

DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?

PM: I welcome your voice – the comments section is where the fun begins! Hearing the responses and experiences of my readers is one of the main reasons I blog.
