Wearing My Gray Hair Proud (And Getting Away with It) | Authspot

I was talking to a friend the other day and shared our stories about writing online. She used to  blog but had stopped due to time constraints and other personal reasons. She advised me though to spread my wings, adding that opportunities are endless if I put my heart into it. She mentioned some sites  like Readers Digest Asia, Yahoo, Hallmark and Triond. It is a great venue to harness one's writing skills and meet other writers as well. Since I felt there was nothing to loose, I visited these sites and registered.


I already submitted one of my articles at Readers Digest Asia a few months ago  and I am still waiting, positively hoping that my article will get published one of these days. I just registered at Triond over the weekend and wrote one post. I got an email this morning that it was already published.

As always, the heart of every post is being real. But having one's stories read and told, no matter how ordinary it was becomes such an extraordinary experience.

I again, just want to share it with you.

  6. I truly admire you for being able to enjoy your natural hair. I've always had troubles with that although I've been repeatedly told my hair is beautiful. 
    I'm working on it though :)

    Hugs

  10. I used to actively write for Triond under a pen name. My last article is probably 2010 pa. My account is still active and earning bits here and there but I'm looking at other similar sites like Hubpages and Expertcolumn.
