Famous People Tag: Yippee!

Well, a couple of days after creating my own blog award to give to others, I get nominated for the Famous People Tag. Sweet! The lovely person who has so kindly tagged me would be none-other-than miss Adaline over at AG In The Shire. Thank you very much, Adi!

Also, I apologize to everyone else for clogging up your blog feeds with "Here, have an award!" and "Look! I got an award!" That's how it goes, though, right? Never rains, it pours.

Alright. So, let's take a look at the rules here...

Thanks Adaline! :)


Blogger Recognition Award - Celebrate Bloggers!

Updated 5/26/16
As it has been over a year now since I first published this, I've cleaned the writing up a bit and updated the guidelines! :)

Blogging has changed our world. Like the Internet as a whole, it's changed the way we communicate, exchange information, and simply how we spend our time. People from all walks of life can create a blog and work their way into having a dedicated readership, or just experiment with the freedom it gives. Talented minds, famous names, ordinary people - every single one of us has the chance to be heard. To be part of a global community. This is the blogosphere, the blogging world, and each individual blogger helps to make it what it is.

So, why not celebrate this wonderful thing? Not just blogging; but celebrate the bloggers themselves. The folks who share with us their talents and interests, their photography and stories and art, their views and opinions; the people who come here to vent their frustrations with life, and the people who want to make us laugh and smile. Because without them, this diverse, free, and fun thing wouldn't be possible.

Now, how shall we celebrate? With an award, of course!

Welcome to Edge of Night

Edit (5/23/2017): Changed some things. :)

A hearty hello to my visitors here, and a major welcome to Edge of Night!

You'll find here plenty of poems, short stories, and other fun little things that I felt like posting. The topics I write about are not specific - nor are the styles or genres. I like to experiment with a little bit of everything. Some are personal, most aren't. You'll find a lot of crap, and you'll notice that I continue to work on pieces long after I post them. Nothing's ever truly finished in the writing world, so think of everything here as in the draft stage.

I've received some very helpful feedback from my readers over these last few years, and I truly appreciate that. I take criticism in stride, and one of my goals here is and has always been to improve my writing abilities. I can't do that if I don't know what's wrong in the first place, and I am bound to miss things after staring at the same string of words for hours on end. This means that I view your comments as invaluable.

With that said, we all have different tastes and opinions. It would be impossible for me to incorporate every suggested revision, every proposed idea, and maintain my own vision. However, I will always listen. I may or may not act on your suggestions, depending on how I feel they fit with the piece and what I personally want out of it - but don't let my inaction discourage you from sharing your ideas with me, because I want to hear them, and I do give consideration to each. Writers are picky folk, and sometimes I stick stubbornly to my own lines. I ask that you not take this to heart, that you understand that I'm not ignoring your comments; I hear them, and please don't hesitate if you have any feedback of your own, be it positive or negative.

To my fellow writers-in-progress, don't give up! Keep at it. To anyone wanting to write but afraid to start, jump in! Just go for it. Sometimes you just have to dive right in.You're always learning as a writer, and I've found there's no better way to improve yourself than to just start writing. Embrace experimentation, use criticism to your advantage, and write, write, write! You'll find your style, your place. You're bound only by the limits of your own imagination. Time to see where it takes you.
