The Urge Is Back

The urge is back…

… to dance with my sins

to have that one drink

to watch that X-rated flick

To wrongly think of the ways

I can use my friend Nick.

In keeping with this week’sย backsliding theme. As I said onย Sunday,ย we as newborn babes are still not perfect. We still need to guard our tongue, we’re still going to make mistakes, and we’re still going to be tempted to revert back to an old sin or two. This is not an excuse, though. Call on the mighty name of Jesus whenever you feel like you’re backsliding. It works all the time.ย

#MyFirstPostRevisited Well, hello there!

wp-1488937671130

The wonderful God-fearingย Margaretย tagged me to do this challenge a while aback and I’m now getting into it. I like breaking rules (oops, did I say that out loud?), therefore I won’t be nominating anyone, but these are the rules:

Obvious rules:

  • No cheating. (It must be your first post. Not your second post, not one you loveโ€ฆfirst post only.)
  • Link back to the person who tagged you (a HUGE thank you to J-Dub )

Other rules:

  • Copy and paste your old post into a new post or reblogย it. (Either way is fine butย NO editing.) (โœ”๏ธ)
    Put the hashtag #MyFirstPostRevisited in your title. (โœ”๏ธ)
  • Tag five other bloggers to take up this challenge. (โœ”๏ธ)
  • Notify your tags in the comment section of their blog (donโ€™t just hope they notice a pingbackย somewhere in their spam).
  • Feel free to cut and paste the badge to use in your post.
  • Include the rules in your post. (โœ”๏ธ)

La Petit Muse...

This is late. I have no business opening another blog, but I wanted to do this for me.

Writing is not the only way I can escape into that dimension that borders our reality; it is also my true passion. I can spend hours blissfully lost in cooking up new stories on my PC and the best thing about having this ticket to that dimension is the fact that itโ€™s free and I can return anytime I want.

I have no business opening another blog, seeing that I already have a few blogs.

And now, hereโ€™s La Petit Muse.

Itโ€™s hard trying to come up with names for a new blog, but I know I wanted the word โ€˜museโ€™ to be a part of this one. I know I wonโ€™t be updating this blog regularly due to my busy schedule, but Iโ€™ll try to keep it running smooth as aโ€ฆ

Awards

Cheilaย nominated me for the Crammed in Awards a while aback.ย Pink for Daysย is an awesome blog and I suggest you pay a visit if you haven’t done so already.

Since this blog is awards free, I’m just going to do away with the rules and answer her questions (I hope this is okay, Cheila) ๐Ÿ™‚

Tell me how awesome you are. What do you do better than anyone else? What do you love about yourself?

I am a notorious speed reader (by mouth and by eyes) and I use this to my advantage whenever I read books, the dailies, and even blogs. When I was in school, my classmates would nominate me to read whenever the teacher asks for a volunteer. I won’t say I do that better than anyone else, but I bet I can match Spencer Reid!

Ah, forget it! I haven’t read 5 books in a week since I’ve begun working. My glorious reading days are over!

I love EVERYTHING about myself. Even the flaws. It makes me who I am.ย

I was also nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by the awesomeย that diaryย and the wonderful Navvirk. Their posts are always a joy to read and if you’re in need some upliftment, you’ll certainly love their blogs. Thank you, ladies ๐Ÿ™‚

Again, I’ll be doing away with the rules since this blog is awards free. Alright, let’s get to it:

How my blog got started?

The story behind the blog’s name is quite aย funnyย one. Anyway, I only had one blog aback in 2012 where I focused on football.ย

I don’t have a special story for opening La Petit Muse. At the time of opening this blog, I wanted to post about the ups and downs of writing. I wanted to post motivating pics daily encouraging writers to tap into their talent, but things took a turn for the best I guess. ^.^

Two pieces of advice to new bloggers.

I am not an advice expert, but I’ll leave two suggestions here:

I always tell people to be themselves. This is the most important thing for everyone out there, not bloggers only.

Don’t let others tell you who you are. You tell them who you are.

Another thing I tell people is to be bold and creative. Sometimes we have a brilliant idea and because we’re fearful of what others may think, we keep it to ourselves… only to see that very same idea materialized by someone else who gets the praise for being a creative genius!
