A Lot Is Happening!

A Lot Is Happening!

Hey Reader,

I have been extremely busy lately, couldn’t even publish a post on this blog, as the title claims I have a lot going on now a days.
Loads of work related stuff and personal.
I was wondering:
How am I going through all this at once?

Anyways, I’ll get to more serious topics concerning my blog(s);
I have been asked to join another blog as a poet but I think it’ll be too much for me to handle it all right now. I don’t want to write some half baked pieces and put ’em up there on their blog, that’ll be rude to them.
What I want to know from you is this:
Do you want to see me doing poetry at another blog?
I don’t know if that’ll be a positive thing, as I already have one blog dedicated to poetry!

Also, recently, someone nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award at Words of Aqua blog. I’m thankful to them that they thought of me and my work as such.

Always thankful for your support and appreciation of my work,
MAQ

P.S.
I have been accused of being jealous of the writers I promote on my poetry blog by a fellow writer, even after being working hard to get their work across WordPress and Facebook. It hurts me so much when people don’t want to tell the truth about what they feel, and tend to lie; even put the blame on someone else (in this case it’s me) to not feel guilty of their own actions. I don’t know what I have done to the person that one has felt the need to act prejudiced towards me, I just wish they would have told me the truth right from the start.

Doing Guest Posts on Words of Aqua!

Doing Guest Posts on Words of Aqua!

Hey Readers,

Finally writing about it.
The guest posts on Words of Aqua, that I have recently started doing.

You might all know that I don’t do reblogging over here on my personal blog and the other one, which is solely dedicated to poetry and prose.
So, back to what I was saying:
I don’t know why but I don’t like to reblog, at all.


Still I wanted other people’s work to get some recognition, if not a lot, so decided to have guests writers/poets/poetesses on my blog Words of Aqua.
We, me and my team @WOA, have done two posts up till now:
1. Parallel Universes (by Fiona Meyrick)
2. STRANDED (by Heidi Fraser)

Hopefully, I’ll be able to introduce more new poets/poetesses to you all.

If you want to join us as a guest writer/poet/poetess email us at:
wordsofaqua@gmail.com


You may let me know about your views, on my initiative, down below.
You’re most welcome to do that.

Thanks for all the support,
MAQ

P.S.
I have been asked to keep on writing these post scripts and so I will, but not only cause someone wants me to, as it was something I planned to do so anyway.
I’m thankful to have found myself a muse back when I did, she on the other hand 
doesn’t count herself lucky to be one though.
Also there are people who inspire me and make me write more 
and even better than before so I hope they keep on writing at their best as to keep me doing the best I can.
And may you all, writers, find people or words that inspire to do/write more as well.

Found An Old Poem Of Mine!

Found An Old Poem Of Mine!

Hey Readers,

I really like to disappear now a days. And let this be known to you, I’m not one of the Horsemen. *Hehe*

Anyways, looking through my Facebook timeline I found an old poem written by me back in 2011. Yes, it has been 6 years and I had totally forgotten about it. I liked it’s ending so shared it on my ‘Words of Aqua‘ blog.

Click on the poem title to read further: Old Woes

Thanks for being here,
MAQ

P.S.
Me and my work can easily be found on ‘HelloPoetry‘ now. If you want to take a look 
do visit the site, it has got many good poets/writers there.
Or you can just type “Ali Qureshi Poet” or “Ali Qureshi Poems” in your google search box to find my work there.

I know I love long and boring post scripts. I hope you don’t mind, if you’re still reading that is! 

I Have Returned With This Post

I Have Returned With This Post

Yo! Readers,

For I have reached a place where I can post once in every short a while. I might not be posting as much as I have posted before and you might think that’s just too bad as I know you were really looking forward to read some more enlightening posts from me.
*Hehehe*

Anyways, I have scheduled a poem (around 8 hours from now) on my other blog so do read it when you have the time.

Thanks and keep on reading,
MAQ

Such A Pleasure!

Such A Pleasure!

Hey Readers,

I’m dropping by to give you all some updates:


1. Have been having these long talks and debates with fellow writers (professionals and amateurs) over what’s really good and what is not (after reading some written material of mine or theirs).

It all boils down to a few phrases:
‘I think’ or
‘In my opinion’ or
‘I’d prefer it to be like this’.
The point is to never go in guns blazing and say:
“There’s a grammatical error.”
And later come to know it is just one’s preference.
I always try to ask the writer/author of a text, if I think there is something not very usual among what they have written, by saying:
“You meant to write that, yes?” and such.

If there’s a much better way to convey your doubt(s) at what someone else wrote, which might not go with you, please do share.


2. One of my pieces (poem) got mentioned earlier today in a blog post.
Thankful to the blogger who felt the need to mention it as something she prefers others must read!


I’ll leave you with these words:

“Never take a literary person lightly; 
each of us writes for our own reasons and influences.”

A Few Types of Bloggers On WordPress

A Few Types of Bloggers On WordPress

My Readers,

I have to confess, I’m a straight forward person.
I’m the guy who speaks/writes his mind.

So, here I go.

After all this time blogging over here, I have found out about the few types of bloggers that you might find here on WordPress and where I stand among them.
check-mark-304890_640-small means yes that’s what I’m doing here and cross-mark-304374_640-small means no that’s not me.
Easy right?

Now, some bloggers:
– write about whatever they feel like writing. check-mark-304890_640-small
– want to encourage people to keep on writing. check-mark-304890_640-small
– are here to read all that they can. check-mark-304890_640-small
– might ‘show you’ that they like what you write just so you can keep
visiting their blog(s). cross-mark-304374_640-small
– just write because they want to write. check-mark-304890_640-small
– have serious worries about the world they want to share. check-mark-304890_640-small
– are just bored and had nothing much to do thus started blogging. cross-mark-304374_640-small
– who comment sincerely. check-mark-304890_640-small
– who want to benefit, monetarily or otherwise, from it (at some
juncture if not right away). check-mark-304890_640-small

That’ll be all from my side, now you may share with me what you think as your comments are always welcome.

Always hoping for more readership,
MAQ
