Hello Fellow Bloggers! 🙂

Happy 2014! I hope your new year has started off well and continues to be filled with wonderful moments!  Since I started the Zero to Hero Challenge with WordPress to create/improve blogs the first day challenge was to introduce myself, but since this blog has been established for awhile I decided to do more of an update.  The past few months leading up to 2014 have been very busy and exciting for me! I am still CEO of Rainbows of Happiness LLC where I write poetry, short stories, children’s literature, fiction, nonfiction, and self-help books, I recently became owner/moderator for the photography community Magnificent Moments Captured Through Film on Google+, was chosen as featured poet for the featured 4 section of MUTT Online by their staff, was selected to have my authored story Always In My Heart in the featured showcase gallery on awritersgallery.wordpress.com, have become a regular contributor for Smile magazine creating their cover story and articles, poetry contributor for The East Coast Literary Review Spring 2014 edition, Winter Solstice Initiative publication, and had three poems published on poetreecreations.org.  I now self-host 4 blogs on various social media platforms (3 on writing, 1 on photography), have created articles on various topics including fashion, photography, education, travel, health, home decor, exercise, skin care, jewelry, and shoes which were formatted and used on websites, blogs, magazines, and ezines.  My followers for this blog are just shy of 1,000 members, and I have formed connections with 1300+ people in the writing industry through LinkedIn! I can’t believe how much things have changed since starting out in Aug!  I have been highlighted as an aspiring author for Idea Creations Press and have an upcoming interview with Book Shelf in Feb 2014.  I received my official copyright certificate from the US Copyright Office and so this year plan to begin publishing my self-help books, and poetry compilations I had been waiting for to receive their copyright clearance.  I also have in the works two completed children’s books for my children’s literature series which I drew the initial character concepts for and am currently working on a book about positive classroom management techniques as well as another self-help book.  I continue to hone my photography skills daily, managing to capture some amazing scenic photographs.  I have become a member of the National Association of Professional Women, Fiction Writers Guild, Poets and Writers Association, Elance Network, Creative Writers Association, Google+ Small Business Owners, Yahoo Small Business Owners, Twitter, Rebel Mouse, Writer’s Beat, MUTT Online, Facebook for Businesses, Blogger, Skyword, Headliner, and Tumblr.  I participate in the weekly photo challenge on Daily Post, and the writing prompts as well, and did NaBloPoMo in November.  Whew! It’s been a busy couple of months! 🙂

The best idea I ever came up with that gave me an “ah ha!” type of feeling was when I decided to leave the education field and pursue a full-time writing career.  I loved writing stories, poetry, and journaling since I was a child.  I still remember writing stories, drawing the illustrations for my stories, then stapling the pages together to make homemade books as a child.  Writing has always been in my blood, it’s been my safety net during troubled times in life, allowing me to record my true thoughts and feelings about issues that arose.  It has been an outlet to turn to. Helping to release bottled up feelings and providing me with a reprieve from negative thoughts that threatened to poison my mind and block out my positive nature. 
     Once I set my mind to following my dreams of becoming a full-time writer, I created my writing company Rainbows of Happiness LLC dedicated to a special angel who had been taken too soon from my life.  She is the reason I have been motivated to go for my writing dream, helping me to realize that life can be unexpectedly cut short so we must live in the moment.  She is my rainbow of happiness in life, so there was no question about what my company should be named.
     Since the time of my company’s creation this past July, I’ve authored a short story Always In My Heart which was chosen for the featured showcase gallery on awritersgallery.wordpress.com, had two poems published on poetreecreations.org, one to be published in the Spring 2014 edition of The East Coast Literary Review, one poem chosen for the Winter Solstice Initiative, became a regular contributor for Smile magazine creating their cover story and articles, was chosen as featured poet for the featured 4 by MUTT online staff, was interviewed by Idea Creations Press, have an upcoming interview with Book Shelf in Feb 2014, have created my company webpage for Rainbows of Happiness LLC, self-host 4 blogs (3 on writing, poetry, and any writing topics that intrigue me, and 1 photography based blog for sharing tips, advice, and displaying my photography along with photographs sent in by followers), I’ve written articles on various topics including fashion, jewelry, shoes, photography, health, exercise, skin care, and education that have been formatted and used on various websites, blogs, magazines, and ezines,  and most recently I have become owner/moderator of photography community Magnificent Moments Captured Through Film, (I’ve been taking pictures since receiving my first camera at age 8), on Google+ which is expanding in membership faster than I ever imagined! 
     Who do I owe credit to for my success in writing and photography?  Why to my special angel, my real rainbow of happiness!  Had she not shown me the fragility of life, the fleeting sense of our existence, I wouldn’t have been spurred to work to hard to follow my dreams of writing and photography to fruition.  I am thankful every day for the hand life dealt me, for being able to know my special angel, even briefly, because ever triumph I achieve, every obstacle I face, I know she’s watching, helping me stay strong and urging me onward to fulfill my dreams for the both of us!
