Daily Flabbergast – Truly Inspired 43#

A Guy Called Bloke invited me to take part in a “Truly Inspired” series he hosts.

I had a blast answering his questions.

My hope is for you to get to know me a little bit, and relate to some of my answers. Maybe I inspired something in you?

1] Blog Name

Daily Flabbergast

“(Don’t fret, I don’t post daily. It was meant to have a name related to some major news publications (“Daily”). And the Flabbergast part is pretty self-explanatory – I blog about things that flabbergast me, and might do the same to you.”

2] What is your blog’s specific genre?

“My blog is constantly evolving. It started as a place for me to discuss news related thoughts with other bloggers. But soon that wasn’t enough, and I introduced some creative writing to my blog.

    1. You’ve got a point there.

      I’m always open to any and all feedback, but not everyone else is. I had people flat out tell me they didn’t care. I had people tell me that they want it, but as soon as they got iffy feedback from me the second time, they put their wall up.

      It’s not an easy balance to give constructive criticism and to keep it light.

      Thanks for reading.


        1. All of the above, and so much more.
          Spelling, grammar.
          Flow of the piece (poem, story, or a regular post).
          Feelings that it evoked.
          Whether it was interesting or not. Precisely, which parts were the best, which were not so good. What I could have done without.



  1. I enjoyed your interview. I too enjoy the blogging community and feedback. Everyone is very supportive. I’ve joined a group of writers for actual critiquing. I hope I don’t regret it. LOL. All the best.

  2. Hey there! The answers were quite interesting! I hadn’t known that this blog was originally supposed to be a place to discuss news. And you do inspire me, Goldie.
    When I started with WordPress, I’d been pretty shy and hadn’t really wanted to write something which will be displayed publicly. So I had started by exploring other blogs and yours was one of the first few . And trust me when I say this, you inspired me to be a blogger like you who is confident of what he writes…
    I hope you keep writing awesome stuff so that I can read it!☺

      1. You inspired me so it should be me thanking you! 🙂
        I will…I’ve got school and a lot of competitions coming up so it has become a bit difficult to read and write regularly but I try to do it as often as I can…
