Who Are Your Favourite Bloggers?

I’m always delighted and slightly surprised when someone compliments me on my writing. It’s that inbuilt inferiority complex that I have dragged around behind me for most of my life. A nasty case of you’re-not-good-enough-itis. For many years I was so disenchanted with myself that I hid behind different characters that I created in order to gain attention and cover up the many glaring flaws that I perceived as having.

It took me to the brink in more ways than one. I almost lost everything. But over the last year or so I have come to the conclusion that maybe I’m not such a bad person after all. Maybe there is hope for me and a purpose for my life. And that is why the majority of my writing focuses on my faith, family and fitness. For they are the three constants in my life that I have clung on to when the rest of my world has been crumbling apart. Likewise they have been the foundations on which I have started to rebuild.

This blog has been part of the rebuilding process. The more I have written and revealed myself to the blogging community the more you have supported and encouraged me. It has been refreshing and invigorating to discover a social media platform where people put others first and talk openly and honestly about their lives and struggles. Where vanity and ego play second fiddle to compassion and selflessness. If only Facebook, Instagram et al could follow that example.

They say a picture paints a thousand words. Personally I’ll take the thousand words any day of the week. The rampant selfie culture holds no interest for me anymore. Beauty fades, prose and poetry do not. They are timeless and irreversible. New words lead to new worlds. Worlds overflowing with possibilities and opportunities. Words bring people together and create caring communities where before there was separation and isolation.

WordPress typifies this bringing together of like minded souls. So the purpose of this post today is to further promote and spread our community. If you would like to I would encourage you to either reblog or post a link to your favourite blog or blogs below. This will create a list of new sites for people to check out and follow. It is about putting others before ourselves and encouraging fellow bloggers to write and read more.

Published by Fractured Faith Blog

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

      1. There use to be a website called sondry where I’d put up short stories , they were mainly about my journey through rehab and addiction based stuff, a publisher who also happened to be in recovery really liked my writing and over time he asked me to write a book

  1. “They say a picture paints a thousand words. Personally I’ll take the thousand words any day of the week. The rampant selfie culture holds no interest for me anymore. Beauty fades, prose and poetry do not. They are timeless and irreversible. ” A great quote from a great writer – you. Your blog is an inspiration. I will reblog this post plus share it on Facebook and Twitter with the above quotation. The following is another blog which inspires me.

  2. I like too many bloggers to narrow it down to a few. I follow bloggers for a variety of reasons for example content, engagement with followers, creativity, and activity. I enjoy busy blogs, meaning there’s a lot going on. I’m impatient and steer away from long and wordy posts. I like to be entertained and learn something new. I find your posts well written and enjoyable reading.


  3. Hey! I totally understand that feeling of constantly feeling you’re-not-good-enough. I have been through and honestly still going through this phase. I say phase because I feel that every person, or at least the ones I have come across, once in there lifetime go through this “phase” where they just don’t feel that they are good enough, either through the perspective of society or themselves.

    It’s this phase that honestly inspired me to start writing a blog and express my feelings. I believe it’s a platform for me to put forward what I really believe. I only began yesterday, so not much here, but I hope to fill it up with some good posts in near future.
