Blog Recommendations (Feb 2020)

flying_a_kite_by_snatti89_dc6chog-pre.jpg

The list I had in mind for today was actually much longer, but I decided to cut it down so I’d be able to recommend blogs slowly over time. I figured having over 20 blog recommendations in one post would under-state the talent on display here. So over the coming months, I’ll occasionally post blog recommendations like this. With that said if you don’t see your name here it doesn’t mean I think less of your work, in fact, you may be on the coming lists. Lord knows cutting down this list was not easy.

Here is a list of the first five blogs I recommend you check out:

Anne Leunne

Paula Light

Enigma

Tara Caribou

Paul Sunstone

 

***************************************

 

Anne Leunne “The world is best viewed through the ears of a horse”

I’ll admit. I never knew much about horses until I came across Anne’s blog. She depicts her adventures with Biasini (who I’m also a fan of) with such vivid detail I feel never miss any of it ๐Ÿ™‚ . I haven’t even mentioned the amazing pictures she has on her blog; some of the most immersive shots to accompany some of the best posts I’ve seen on WordPress.

Anne has a series running. Rather, Biasini has a series running called “Biasini Speaks” where he speaks to the readers. Certainly one of my faves, check it out ๐Ÿ˜€ .

 

*********************************

 

Paula Light “Creating order out of chaos and vice versa”

Paula is a free spirit and I love how often she surprises me with the things she writes. Paula is definitely one of the most versatile bloggers I know, she’s also very consistent with her posts.

I admire the wide range of topics she tackles on her blog with an uncompromising IDGAF attitude. Check out her series “The Monday Peeve” it’s one of my favourites.

Note: She has published a new book called “Switching positions” on kindle books. I for one am interested in seeing what it’s about.

 

*******************************

 

Enigma “Fire in your veins, magic in your bones, allow yourself to heal and learn to embrace your uniqueness to find a way out of this labyrinth”

Enigma, The poetess with an otherworldly surgical precision in the use of words. To be honest, there’s not much I could really say here that I haven’t already said to her a thousand times lol. Her talent with poetry can be seen and felt with each written piece. Enigma does not just write poetry, she moulds it from the ground up. Rarely do I see such meticulously designed lines and relentless investment in the art. She takes the time to make every word deliberate and that’s something I find special and truly inspiring.

Check out some of my favourite poems from her blog:ย 

With love from your soul

Metaphors and Paradoxes

 

************************************

 

Tara Caribou“Spit, mixed with dirt – muddy words flow”

Tara expresses herself so vividly through her poetry. In fact, I feel like separating the two would be inaccurate on my part. Within her is the spirit of a fighter, a passion that burns so brightly. I come across a lot of poets that write great poetry, but rarely do I see poets that have their words weaved so intricately into the very fabric of their being.

Tara’s talents stretch beyond poetry though as she occasionally shows her skill with photography. I love the black and white aesthetic she has on them (perhaps it’s a heavy bias on my part because I happen to love well-framed black and white shots)

 

*****************************

 

Paul Sunstone “A blog dedicated to the joy and adventure of thinking and often spiced with humour)”

Paul is like that secret you find whilst wandering the woods of a fantasy setting. It’s a secret that leads to a world beyond imagining, a secret you are tempted to keep to yourself and not share afraid it will be tainted by the worst parts of humanity.

What I admire about Paul is that he is a firm believer of authenticity. And once I saw and felt that through his writing I knew we would get along. Also, I love his sense of humour lol

Paul dabbles in a wide range of topics, highly unpredictable and that’s my favourite part. You never really know what he’ll post next but you know it’s going to be special. There’s wisdom and plenty to learn from Paul’s blog ๐Ÿ™‚ .

Also, check out his debut book Sunburst woman which came out recently! Excited to check it out ๐Ÿ˜€

 

I hope you check them all out ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I feel honored. I would feel deeply grateful to you, O.D., just to be considered for your list of worthwhile blogs, let alone to make the cut! This makes my whole week for me! Coming from you, this is such a great honor!

    By the way, my book’s digital version is currently available for free! This is a limited time promotion and will only last until 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time. Everyone is invited to take advantage of it! It is an entirely risk-free way to be introduced to my poetry. Just go to your nearest Amazon store and order “Sunburst Woman” by Jack Ontair (Ontair is my pen name)!

    Again, O.D., thank you so very much for this!

      1. Oh, and one more thing. My book “Sunburst Woman” is good for you! Amazon classifies it as “self-help” because reading it will cause you to suffer, and “suffering builds character”! ๐Ÿ˜€

      2. I cant wait to check it out. Ive downloaded it and will be soaking it all in as time moves. I donโ€™t know if you want me to get back to you with my thoughts and experiences but I certainly wouldnโ€™t mind sharing them with you.

        I saw you said โ€œbook series 1โ€ are we to expect this to be a series or am I asking too many questions too soon? ๐Ÿ˜น

      3. I would love — LOVE — to hear your thoughts about the poems! I would be so grateful for any feedback — positive or negative — that you wanted to give.

        I intend to bring out a series of books over the next ten years. All of them under the name of “Jack Ontair”. The next book in the series will be another collection of poems. This time, the core topic will not be intimacy but instead, abuse.

  2. What an honor you have given me. Wow. I am absolutely floored.

    Iโ€™ve thought about doing something like this too, but also thought… so many great blogs out there. A series is a good idea! Thank you for this! ๐Ÿ’• And Iโ€™m going to check the three I hadnโ€™t heard of before, too! Great recommends.

  3. It is an absolute honour to have my little space included in your list of blog recommendations. I am really delighted, thank you! This really made my day. I am glad you considered me in this list of worthwhile bloggers and it is a true pleasure to be included in this list with such wonderful people, Dante! I cannot wait to check their spaces out and I am looking forward to collaborating with you someday.

    Wishing you loads of health and happiness,
    Enigma ๐Ÿ™‚
