The Daily Prompt: Secret of Success

The Daily Prompt:

What would it take for you to consider yourself a “successful blogger”? Is that something you strive for?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us EFFORT.

Effort. It’s only six letters but it’s a very big word. It requires a lot of energy, time, and quick thinking. Not only that, it’s one of the most important thing if you want to become successful.

A successful blogger always considers effort as a worthy adversary. Well, of course, it’s because almost all bloggers want to be successful overnight. But that’s not happening anytime.

Instead, we have to focus on blogging. Anything can be written down perhaps. That is, until we see the light of day. We have to produce massive amounts of effort in order to get the audience we always wanted. We have to motivate ourselves to just keep writing until our fingers bleed.

Trimming it all down for this very short post on effort and success for bloggers, it would only mean that everyone has to put massive amounts of effort in order to become successful, whether it would take forever or just a day.

Slice of Life

Slice of Life

by Kevin Nam

I wake up every morning

Sitting at the table, eating

Thinking right there, wondering

What life is gonna give today

I head out on a stroll

With clothes and shoes and evreything

I see someone begging for alms

I give some, it wouldn’t hurt anyway

All these bad things I see

From the hidden side of the neighborhood

While on the visible side

People only speak of good things

I look at both sides

They have both different lives

The lighter ones always look at brightness

And the other feels like there is no hope

Is it too much to say?

That I’ve written something that may be

Over the top, it may seem

But this is the reality that appears to me

I go home and think

What the day has given me

I ponder and realize

I’m somewhere in the middle, but where do I go?

This is my slice of life

A roller coaster of emotions

That only goes anywhere

My slice of life

Daily Prompt: The Full Moon

(Just wanted to try something new. Doesn’t hurt once in a while, anyways.)

The Daily Prompt:

When the full moon happens, you turn into a person who’s the opposite of who you normally are. Describe this new you.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us NIGHTTIME. 


by Kevin Nam and Joseph Marzan

Night time, night time
Pour a glass of wine
Or champagne for that matter
And put a dash of lime

In the night
We lose all our fears
Our troubles, hopes and dreams
Fade away from the daylight

As the moon shines above
As the echo shifts from cuckoos to howls
And sins take flight
Up to the edge of night

O night, o night
Full of adventure and delight
This is our escape
From the reality of every day.

Joseph didn’t really put anything in here. I was just being modest.

Selfie. (eww)

Trends are eternal, ever-changing and evolving. They may be in the field of fashion, music, technology, whatsoever. The trend in discussion for this post falls under the field of photography, and maybe social media. This trend has actually been a “trend” (do the two-fingers bending thingy) ever since the camera was introduced to the world. And if you catch my drift, yes. I’m talking about the one, the only, SELFIE.
