The Small World of Blogging

Hello, everyone!

I know the Blogging World isn’t small at all, as there are over than 200 million of blogs on the Internet nowadays!

I’m talking about the fact that we are a united community, I mean, sometimes I’m reading a post on a random blog and decide to click on a link left by a random commenter and, while reading the commenter’s blog, I find comments from blogs that I also read very often and that have also left comments on my blog!

Looking for Alaska | Book Review

Author: John Green
Genre: Young Adult
Rating: 4/5

Before. Miles "Pudge" Halter's whole existence has been one big nonevent, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave the "Great Perhaps" (François Rabelais, poet) even more. He heads off to the sometimes crazy, possibly unstable, and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed-up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young, who is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart.
After. Nothing is ever the same.

Live and Be Happy

Walk the paths you’ve never walked before. Do the things that nobody has dared to do. Leave your own footprints… And don’t step over the footprints left by others before you, because it will be cheating.

If you walk the same path over and over, you’ll only find the things you’ve already found. Change the path. Every day you live must be a reason to celebrate.

My Creativity Comes at Night

Hello, everyone!

Has it ever happened to you, that you’re all tucked up in bed, ready to fall asleep, and your brain begins to bomb you with thousands of thoughts, quotes, scenarios, ideas and stories?

It is strange the fact that you could spend all day sitting in front of your computer while flattening your buttocks, trying to come up with cool ideas for a blog post or with new scenes for something you are writing and not a single bug pops up into your mind but, as soon as you lay your head on the pillow, tons of ideas invade your brain and you begin going mad because all you want to do is sleep! But you can’t… So the only thing that’s left to do is to grab the writing device closer to you (mobile, iPod, notepad+pen, tablet, or laptop) and begin writing.
