Pillar Post – An In-depth post that define your blog.
Welcome back to another edition of the Open Book Blog Hop! If you’re new to the series, the authors included are grateful for your reads and appreciate, even more so, when you share our writings with your friends. If you’re new to the series, welcome aboard. The authors engage and impress weekly. Be prepared to become a regular reader.
The Blue Honor Blog is, essentially, the section of my website where I keep readers up to date on my projects and bring them fresh content twice a week. The focus of my blog reflects the issues that arise in my books. You’ll find history and historical writing. If you scroll through the menus at the top, the organization covers the topics that I mainly focus on: art, dogs, cooking, Native American and Feminist Issues, guests and the environment.
This space also serves as a means for building out the worlds of Trailokya. A series of posts starting in the spring have illustrated different aspects of the books, making a richer experience for the reader. It also helps me fill out the series companion on Wattpad. Each time I write an article, it almost always fits into a section of the companion, and I can copy it there. The companion is a live document that relies on feedback and continued maintenance.
My blog features artists from time to time. I like to showcase beautiful works of art by friends. Subscribe, and you’ll get one of these features in you inbox this December! I can’t wait to cover this next artist. He’s phenomenal. And, I hope to have one a month for a few months, because I have a few people in mind that deserve a showcase. I also create a lot of the graphics that you see on the site (not the stock art—although I am a photographer and one or more of my works may have been on the site).
Because I commentate politics on my Facebook site, and I cover political issues in my work, it’s only natural that it comes over to my blog. A monthly environmental news round up happens on the last Monday or Friday. I wrote articles about candidates for the presidency, and the coopting of feminism by one in particular. I’m not shy about my political opinions on Facebook, but the blog is much more muted.
The sections on dogs are filled out by useful tips on caring for your pet, as well as the Shagbottom Theater vignettes that I voice. These comedy shorts feature my golden retriever-labrador mix being a diva. It’s a lot of fun.
Other fun stuff on the blog are my recipes and cooking tips. My belief is that anyone can cook, given a clear recipe and proper ingredients. Each recipe I include is practical and easy, to help boost confidence and build out a new chef’s repertoire.
Overall, my blog is about getting to know me as a person. The topics I cover are things dear to me. They’re glimpses into my mind and life. So each piece is carefully tended before being released, even if you find typos or grammar issues. I hope you’ll subscribe and join the fun!
Let’s hop on over to see what the other authors’ blogs are like…
