The Art of Blogging | Why I like it

Writing, Blog, Art

I have already said what inspires me to write and that I want to keep doing it. To write about what I read, to write about random stuff and some of my own short stories. But I’ve been thinking about writing, blogging in general, even before I started my own blog. I had been blogging randomly a long time ago when blogging wasn’t so big yet. But I stopped. And recently, as things change, life goes on, I remembered how good it felt. Writing is an amazing tool. Therapy like. Personal and unique. Awesome way to express whatever it is …

What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton #BookReview

What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton

What Happened? Let’s see, Hillary Clinton almost made it to the White House. This book tries to explain how that happened. Very interesting, and extremely well written. I couldn’t wait to get my hand on this book from Hillary Rodham Clinton. I loved the way she wrote Hard Decisions, where she talked about her time as U.S. Secretary of State. Somehow this book is a sequel. Of what happened after she left the State Department and eventually decided to run again for President. Very detailed, honest, sad, hopeful, real. It’s an exciting journey on her campaign trail. It starts with …

Mindfulness would be good for you. If it weren’t so selfish. via The Washington Post

Hey guys, Again I know this isn’t what you are used to, but I wanted to diversify a bit the blog content. I found an interesting article regarding Mindfulness on The Washington Post and I really wanted to share it here as well. I find the concept ever so present in our books and many other materials that surround us lately. Mindfulness, as popularly promoted and practiced, can itself be a distraction. It purports to draw on ancient traditions as an antidote to modern living. Yet it exacerbates the modern tendency toward navel-gazing, while asking us to resist useful aspects of …
