Blog: Street Literature

Vanessa Irvin Morris’s blog is on Blogspot.

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

Vanessa Irvin Morris (VIM): Tagline: A Black Librarian Pounds the Pavement to Bring You the Word on Street Lit || This is a blog where I explore the literary genre of Street Literature for educators (teachers and librarians)

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Street Literature?

VIM: I have been researching Street Literature for over 10 years. I am a librarian educator in higher ed. and before that I was a public librarian for a major city library system, in the hood. I’ve worked extensively with inner-city teens and their reading and research interests/needs. The popularity of Street Lit in public libraries for the past 10 years continues to be a phenomenon that needs to be explored, discussed, and understood.

DCSME: How is Street Literature different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

VIM: To my knowledge and research, there are no other blogs solely devoted to advocating for the literary genre of Street Literature.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

VIM: I like that I can share my questions and understandings with educators so that they can better serve their students and readers. I also appreciate having a forum where I can critically make connections between what happens in the world as we live, and how that relates to the language and power of the streets.

DCSME: How often do you update Street Literature?

VIM: I update my blog at least 3 times per month.

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

VIM: Street Lit a.k.a. “urban fiction” is a literary genre that has been chagrined by many in the literary field and in education. My blog is an advocate for the merits of the genre and its readers. My stance is to not judge the book by its cover and to not judge the reader by his/her book.

MD Blogger: Life’s Journey: Woman to Woman

Blogger: Life’s Journey: W2W

Blog: Life’s Journey: Woman to Woman

Life’s Journey: W2W’s blog is on webs.com.

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

Life’s Journey: W2W (LJW2W): These blogs address issues that every woman faces along their Journey of Life. Abuse, sex, relationships, health, money, spirituality, and God are all pertinent issues that women encounter during life and we provide advice to every woman that stops by to read or listen to what is provided. LJW2W’s blogs take you on the journey of your life and inspire you to become the BEST Woman that you can be. Not only do we have poetry, blogs, and written tidbits, but, we have a BlogTalk RadioShow as well.

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Life’s Journey: Woman to Woman?

LJW2W: I picked the Topic for my blog because I AM WOMAN. I understand that we struggle with so many issues in life. Sometimes our life doesn’t go the way we want. When I recognized this concept, I decided that I wanted other women, especially young women, to know that they were not alone in this Journey. As the founder, I am also a interested in Women’s Issues and Women’s Health. Currently, I am in Graduate School studying how to play a vital role in the Life’s of Women by providing them with Advanced Nursing Care as a mid-level primary care provider. Inspiring others is dear to my heart and my God-given PURPOSE!

DCSME: How is Life’s Journey: Woman to Woman different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

LJW2W: My Blog differs from many other because we are NOT trying to be like someone else. One thing I admire about our blog site is the easy access to the content.

Most times when I click on a blog there is so much information that I don’t know where to start. The sites are not easy to scroll through. LJW2W’s blog is easy to scroll through and find the information you WANT.

If you’re looking for health tips, all you have to do is click the health tips link. If you want to learn about marriage you just click on the blog about marriage. It’s simpler access to the information that you need.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

LJW2W: I love being able to be transparent before my audience and allow them to learn from what I am learning. I like the fact that it is designed in such a way as to have my followers journey this life with me. I also love the fact that anyone can join and be included in the site’s activities. My members get an inspirational nugget each week delivered to their in-boxes.

One last thing is that my BLOG has FACEBOOK CONNECT! This was the anyone can connect via FB, share, like, and comment. That’s an awesome thing.

DCSME: How often do you update Life’s Journey: Woman to Woman?

LJW2W: Our FB Fanpage is updated daily. Our blog site is updated just about bi-weekly/monthly. We don’t want to overload our members but, we want to consistently inspire them.

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

LJW2W: It’s a beautiful site. When your down, needing advice, prayer, or more, it is one of those sites you are bound to become INSPIRED from.

NJ Blogger: Roy L. Pickering Jr.

Blogger: Roy L. Pickering Jr.

Blog: A Line A Day

Roy L. Pickering Jr.’s blog is on Blogspot.

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

Roy L. Pickering Jr. (RLP): My blog is a continuous work in progress, fluidly charting my diverse interests and reflecting the far reaching range of my tastes. Frequent subjects of discussion include literature, the book publishing industry, sports, politics, pop culture and artistic motivation. You will find thoughtful essays and stream of consciousness rants, reviews of books written by others and the presentation of my own fiction – novel excerpts as well as short stories.

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for A Line A Day?

RLP: Rather than being a traditional blog that focuses on a single subject, my blog is basically an electronic journal. Only rather than discussing my personal life I write opinion pieces on a variety of topics. A number of my postings result from headlining stories of the day that elicit strong reactions in my timeline on Twitter. I start off responding to what I see there, particulary in cases where my own opinion on the matter differs from the mainstream consensus, and sometimes end up with enough material to assemble and present it as a blog posting. I rarely know what I’ll be writing about next because my postings tend to be reactions/responses to what takes place in the world at large, and I have no way of predicting what will trigger my next commentary.

DCSME: How is A Line A Day different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

RLP: My answer to the previous question basically answers this one. A Line A Day mirrors no other blog because it’s doubtful that anyone else shares my unique set of interests and opinions. Certainly you’ll find political commentary by me on topics addressed on political blogs as well, book reviews that can be found on book review blogs, sports commentary such as appears on many sports blogs, and social commentary on topics of interest to various bloggers. But chances are you will not find this all packaged in the same place other than at A Line A Day. My original fiction also sets it apart from other blogs.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

RLP: I’m a writer with strong opinions on a variety of matters. Blogging allows me to express those opinions in writing in a different manner than enabled by my fiction writing.

DCSME: How often do you update A Line A Day?

RLP: I do not have a set schedule in large part because my postings are often in response to specific events. Those of strongest interest to me do not conveniently occur at regular intervals. So I sometimes go several weeks between postings, and at other times I’ll create postings just one day apart. On average I’d say I write two per month.

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

RLP: I love getting feedback from my readers and I’m not necessarily looking for people to echo the opinions I have expressed. If you agree with me let me know, but if you don’t, please don’t hesitate to tell me why so a meaningful exchange of ideas can take place. I don’t simply want to talk at people, but to them, and that requires back and forth communication I’d love to do more of.

WI Blogger: Adrienna Turner

Blogger: Adrienna Turner

Blog: Dream 4 More

Adrienna Turner’s blog is on Blogspot.

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

Adrienna Turner (ADT): Dream 4 More Blog is an affiliation with Dream4More Firm (www.Dream4More.webs.com). We promote authors, speakers, dream sponsors and events. We love to showcase community events, book signings, Dream Interviews (connected to our online radio networks: Adrienna Turner Show and Dream4More Radio on BTR), and Dream 4 More Reviews. This is another outlet and social network to expose dreams, talents, and author’s literary works and products or services.

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Dream 4 More?

ADT: Since late 2008, I was listening to online radio shows, interviews posted on blogs and other social networks, and then decided it was time to blog. I didn’t want to be a normal blogger and love to showcase people’s talents, abilities, and gifts…therefore, Dream 4 More concept came in mind early 2009. I started reviewing for AAMBC Review Group Jan. 2009, then started my own March 2009: Dream 4 More Reviews that has been nominated for best review group and 2011 Facebook Reviewer of the Year. Being a dreamer, I wanted a catchy name: Dream4More.

Dream 4 More motto is to make your dreams into a reality; continue to dream 4 more.

We hope to expand beyond the literary market and jump into the entertainment markets too. www.Dream4More.webs.com

DCSME: How is Dream 4 More different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

ADT: We expose and glean on dreams! We deserve to make people’s dreams into a reality. Therefore, we started with aspiring authors, to new authors, and later seasoned authors and other guests. We also promote reviews on our blog and social networks. This is another highlight with other topics to keep people reading and watching us–to dream for more. We also include our Dream4More Radio feature, Book Features, Videos, and other things on the sidebars.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

ADT: We love to share other people’s dreams! We watch dreams bloom into realities.

As an author, reviewer, and radio host, I know how hard it is to get word-of-mouth and exposure with shoe-string budget. I didn’t wait for someone to interview me; therefore, I started my own radio shows. I widen my platform for other speakers, pastors, authors, etc. I studied the markets and love to create things as well as write, blogging does both: market (Google Tracker will pick up blogs quicker than websites) and write.

DCSME: How often do you update Dream 4 More?

ADT: Every time we have a show topic, Dream Interview, Dream 4 More Review, and other features that need to be showcased on our social networks including blog.

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

ADT: Adrienna Turner videos and books are also available on the sidebars. We also are on Facebook profiles/Likes: Adrienna Turner; Adrienna Turner Show; Dream 4 More Radio; DreamMore Literary Firm; Dream 4 More Firm; Dream 4 More Reviews; Dream Your Reality Prophecies; Adrienna Turner (public figure) and God is in the Equation (closed group).

You can also enjoy Dream4More Radio on the side bar and follow us today. We love to have you and help your dream birth forth. Soar for your Encore! Dream 4 More.
