(Planting words of life to grow inspiration in everyone)

Writer T-Sizzles is the author of the blog site writersfield

Hi everyone. My name is Tarisai.  I’m an aspiring music producer and writer. My stage name is T-Sizzles and I love writing of all sorts. Songwriting, poetry, journals you name it. I mostly love inspiring people and giving them the boost they need to make it through!

I created my blog for one purpose and one purpose only: to impact lives the best way I can. It’s always nice being a source of encouragement. I have seen other people mention things from their personal lives, experiences, things they’ve learned-both on their own and from others-and through all that, they’ve managed to influence lives for the better, in one way or another. For me, my goal is to put all of that together! In the process have fun, enjoy everything I do and also learn from the best!

From The Value of People

The Value Of People

People matter more than most realize! There’s a phrase that says, “Impartation of association” simply put it’s a person becoming more like the one they associate with. If someone hangs around a lazy person very often, in some ways, they become lazy at certain things as well. But if someone hangs around a focused person, they too will start getting more serious with themselves. That leaves the one question: If you wanted to be more focused, but you normally hung around those who weren’t, most of the time, does that mean you ditch them?

Relationships are important. I’ll answer this question like this:

There are friends who are there to confide in

Close friends

There are friends  who love hanging out

There are friends who are laid back

 And there are those who will never leave you

Of course there those who also betray, use, abuse, manipulate, belittle and genuinely make fun of  us as well. Sadly there are people who hang around more with that group of people than the list I mentioned!

People shape us and mold us into who we are. Dr Mike Murdock said, “Success is a collection of relationships” What that means is that the people we spend more time with determine the direction of our life. It’s not really a matter of good or bad, right or wrong, but rather a factor of time. 

Someday, someone will walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else.

I’m not referring to dating type relationships! What that means to me is that there is someone who you’ll always enjoy being around, have a good time with, be challenged by and become successful with.

If you don’t like where your life is going now, ask yourself, “Who do I need to spend more time with?”

Your Best Post at Choice Posts


In visiting various WordPress sites, I am enormously impressed by the diversity and general quality of content out there. It is a particular pleasure to read so many original and colorful poems.

After spending some additional time quietly but rapidly exploring (no posts, no likes, etc.) it seemed that it would be nice if there was a “sampler” available of the best posts of the various WordPress sites. I found pages like WordPress’s own Blogs of the Day and various “Best Blog” sites, but I couldn’t find any true sampler blogs. I have decided to launch a WordPress blog dedicated to showcasing the very best post of anyone interested in participating. This not only includes poetry, but also recipes, journals, photography, fiction, history, humor, travel and so on.

The approach is, at least on the surface, pretty simple.

Anyone interested chooses exactly one post from their site they wish to have represented on the new CHOICE POSTS blog. They may chose the post they think is their best, that their readers like the best, that best represents the nature of their blog, etc.

They then email the HTML, Text and any associated images of their representative post to choiceposts@gmail.com plus the link for that post plus four additional links and associated names of four other posts they would like to have referenced. This allows the site administrator to re-assemble this post to match (or at least be similar to) what is on the original site.

It is very important that the Category of the Post is specified such as one of the categories found on the WordPress Tag Page. This will allow readers of CHOICE POSTS to easily browse along their lines of interest and help match readers to blog sites.

In addition, author should submit any additional information they wish to be included about their site and/or themselves which will be included in the post. Author name (real or not real) can also be included. For example, after administration team assembles information provided on email, the resulting post in choiceposts.wordpress.com could look something like:

Poet_Don’t_Knowit is the author of the site “POETRY ON THE RUN”

Poem of the Approaching Autumn (Link1)

I love fall
It whispers in my ear
Like paint drying.

Additional Posts from “POETRY ON THE RUN”
Poem of Spring (Link2)
Poem of Winter (Link3)
Poem of Summer (Link4)
Poem of Fall (Link5)

[Category: Poems]

The CHOICE POSTS admin team will initially post a few of these a week, pretty much trying to post in the order of submissions received until a backlog develops. At that point, some process will be used to select only a portion of the posts submitted — either random selection, selection based on quality, variety and other characteristics or a hybrid approach.

Someone who has had a entry posted on CHOICE POSTS may later feel they wish another post to represent their site. If this happens, and enough time has passed (six months), then they can email a new submission for posting to CHOICE POSTS, indicating whether they want the earlier submission kept or deleted.

All posts and links must be from WordPress sites. Some constraint is needed and this just makes administratipon easier. The universe of WordPress itself is pretty big and way too big for this one project. In addition, I feel some loyality to WordPress from the short time that I have been here (since July 1, 2011.) I like the ease of use, the ability to connect to other users, the sense of community and the flexibility and convenience.

Submitted content should be suited for general audiences with the CHOICE POSTS Admin Team selecting Posts they think acceptable for a “G” or “PG” audience.

Best,

Choice Posts Administrator

Update 9/26: For very understandable reasons, some participants may wish to just provide link of their “best post” since the look of their site is different than what is at choiceposts.wordpress.com. In this case they just need to provide introductory text about their site and/or themselves and the link of the “best post” and up to four other links to other posts on their WordPress site.
