It Warms My Heart #11 Freedom Of Speech

Standard

I get really really mad when someone tries to prevent me from expressing my views and dismisses my claims as “you just angry or sad or in your feelings.” Although, I am not a speaker in person and usually choose a corner and not a crowd, when I speak I am usually very vocal. I am very particular about my freedom to speak sometimes I take it too personal. Note that I am not referring to disruptive conversation whilst someone else is addressing a group. Nor am I referring to outlandish behavior such as cursing up an person or blatant disregard from persons of authority. For example, if I am speaking too loud at a group discussion at a public library and the librarian ask me to tone it down, I cannot get angry and say “it is my right to speak.” In that instance I am rude and  disrespectful.

Favourite Things About Blogging/Top 5 Wednesday

Standard

Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 is a weekly bookish assessment by Gingerreadslainey and today’s feedback is 5  favourite things about your community you use for T5W: YouTube, Blogging etc.. You can also access the topics on the Goodreads Group. I am happy with this week’s topic [not that the others did not delight] because it brings to the forefront how important the medium we use weekly to share our thoughts is and especially how we feel our host site. I am so eager to share what I love about WordPress Blogging and more excited to read your reasons to compare ;).

  1. DISCOVERY AND LEARNING
I have access to so many source based material on topics that I like that I would not get if I am not constantly alerted to posts from the bloggers who I follow or come across on my journey. As a result I am always reading articles or more simpler structured posts, learning about what shaped our past, why the earth behaves in a particular way or how to do simple coding [thank you WordPress]. My heart sings for joy when I see an alert that so and so archives will give access for three days to the public. I quickly write down the date because I know, I have that time to conduct research in a database that I would not normally have access through its portals.  Of course, there are the funny posts which give the welcome laughter, chuckle or smile to balance out the heavier material. In addition,  I may not pick up a book/novel for two/three weeks but I am still reading daily because of my blogging community and I love it! Besides, I get tips of books that passed under my radar but someone out there always word their review in a way which pulls my interest.
