I read on a post of one of the writers I avidly follow that passers-by feel more inclined to read your stories, when they see the face of the person who wrote them, along with a thing or two about them.
So my lovely readers, here is a post about the woman behind the blog.
I am a 31 year old French woman and a full time English teacher. I love my job and the kids I work with. I am an enthusiastic traveller, a half-marathon runner, an avid reader, and a passionate teller of stories.
If there were five things I was allowed to take along with me on a deserted island – that is if I was not permitted to take a breathing, living person – I would bring my laptop (hoping there would be a generator there), my guitar, a camera, a swimsuit, and a pair of sneakers.
Haha – I know what you are thinking – I would not make it in the wild. I probably wouldn’t, but we all know the purpose of this exercise is to pick items you would not want to not live without – at least that is how I am playing it.
I am a loving friend, and a caring member of my lovely family. I am a people person, but I need my alone time to thrive, whether it be running for hours, taking pictures, playing guitar, reading, or typing myriads of tales on my computer.
I live in the beautiful land of Haute Savoie, surrounded by gigantic mountains, as I dip my toes in the pure, transparent waters of Lake Geneva and gaze upon the shore of gorgeous Switzerland on the opposite lakeside.
Nine months ago, I thought I would embark on a solo adventure – a blog on which I could combine and share my passions for words and photography. Soul Lines was born. And voilà here we are. 🙂
My life has crossed the paths of many wonderful people here. Thank you all for your enthusiastic and valued input. My daily dose of your warm, insightful comments and posts never fails to put giant smiles on my face.
Visiting your blogs and reading the words of passionate people feels like a privilege. I wish I had time to read even more. I do my best to keep up with your productivity and drop a caring line here and there.
Blogging is a highly positive drive and a tangible force in my life. I feel like I have grown both as a person and as a writer since I have started. I am not parting ways from you guys anytime soon. A post every other day keeps the doctor away, right?
I would love to learn more about my readers too. So if you would like to post a link to your biography, or share a few things in the comments, or send me an email – firstname.lastname@example.org. I would happily read it.
With a heart full of creativity,
PS1: In case you were wondering, I have multiple identities on WordPress – B. (when I write poetry in French or English, and short stories in French), Hailie Andersen, my pen name when I write short stories in English, and Soul Writer, when I post on Soul Lines.
PS2.: Happy new year everybody! Many blessings and a beautifully creative year ahead! ❤
