Introduce yourself! (Meet and greet page)

Welcome to my meet and greet page, inspired by some of the first bloggers I followed and I have love that my followers are eager to put their blog posts out there and read the posts shared by others. For this reason I have introduced this page and I will keep returning to it regularly.

I feel my community is now large enough to provide a page for you to promote your blog and get to know other bloggers a little better.

So with that, feel free to introduce yourself here. Who are you and where are you from? I would love to see the diversity here with such an international blogging audience and feel free to link your blog for others to read.

New to this page? Welcome!

Already posted here in the past? Feel free to stop by and say hello anytime.

It is going to be hard if not impossible to keep up with comments on here whilst I publish posts around it, however I am constantly on the page looking at all the contributions and I will re-post this regularly to give a better opportunity for posts to be seen.

Hopefully you find a new cool blog to follow and someone feels the same way about yours 🙂

Happy blogging!

  1. My wife, daughters and I live just outside Boston, Massachusetts, USA;I grew up just outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. JustBearWithMe ( started as a way to force myself to write up the results of random data analyses (politics, Doctor Who episodes, film noir lists) I was conducting, but it quickly evolved into a mix of that and storytelling from my own life–particularly travel and my “interrogating memory” (investigating the truth of my own life). I expect a comprehensive look at the 36 U.S. races for governor to be posted in five or six days.

  2. Hey my name: doesn’t matter but I write literary tinted nihilistic ecstatic travel blogs. No boring shit, no logistics. What I write is also what I read, so let me know if you have a travel blog with style points I’d want to check out!

  3. Hello! I try to read your blog as much as I could and I love it! As I intended to keep my blog anonymous, I can’t mention my name, not even my friends and family know that I have my blog, not a single soul among them.;) Anyways, I’m from the Philippines but currently working in Kuwait, I’ve been living here for the past nine and a half years. I can’t believe I’ve been here that long, it’s not a very ideal place to live in actually but I can only be grateful! 🙂

    • You have lived there for a long time! I too have kept this anonymous and only my immediate family know about it, so I understand fully. But thank you so much for the kind words and giving us a little insight into you 🙂

  4. I blog on GoTravelLife as my hubby and I have a passion for exploring the world, but we’re not quite retired yet (kids in high school so almost there!) – so we share our views, lots of good food and wine, and advice on tech that makes travel easier. We live in the Atlanta area and ‘Hello World’ was my intro to blogging. Thanks for sharing your stories, I love to read fellow blogger tales and will be using your learnings in our upcoming journeys!

  5. This is such a great idea! I love reading your blog and seeing what adventures you are having! I am from the UK (although currently in gorgeous Menorca!) and I started my blog as a way of recording my travels and keeping them alive once I had returned home! I love all things travel and it’s given me the means to express this. I also had no idea when I started what a great community I was entering. So many fantastic blogs out there and I have been overwhelmed by the support I’ve received along the blogging road!

  6. It’s nice to see I’m not the only one who enjoys the multi cuties aspect of blogging. I’m a Chicago IL girl who left the city two years ago to live in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My backyard is a national forest (literally the property line is the forest) and my blog is primarily nature photography, posts about my new puppy, and travel. I’m a writer so there are occasional poems, haiku, and other short musings.
    Today’s post has some photos I’m very proud of, hope you check it out.

    Hobbies include Travelling, Reading, Stamp Collecting, Coin Collecting. On a path to learn about different countries and their people the hobbies that helped in this regard are Stamp and Coin Collecting. Having a large collection of stamps dated back to 1947. Reading books and material related to countries and places also play a major part of learning that fulfills traveling zeal.

    And the travelling also created love for plants, flowers, trees, full moon, and water/rain well basically anything that had to do with nature. Love sitting under a tree or lay down under the open sky watching stars and sky. Having a strong desire to visit every city in the world and learn about their culture.

    As said by Vera Nazarian “Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world, a door opens to allow in more light”. In a desire to have more and more light love reading either in hard copy or e-books. Loves different books related to Technology, Travel, Nature, Research but the most favorite book is “Readers Digest” an American general interest family magazine that includes topics from all aspects of life including Technology, Travel, Stories, Health and many more. This love of learning, collecting, researching and developing new skills has proven useful in career and also just to relish.

    Love watching & playing Football. Another sport loved, is Golf but never played it at Golf Court, but played many times on PC and Xbox.

  9. Greetings fellow bloggers, I started my blog to walk my way toward retirement, but find it’s a good venue to talk about other issues in this part of Nebraska. I discuss gardening, animals, and aging.
    I’ve traveled a bit and hope to do more as time becomes more available. The blog also give me a place to post many photos about life in this rural area. Join me if any of these issues are of interest.

  11. Nice idea. I’m David Meredith, originally from Cheshire, England I now live in Ontario, Canada. After studying photography in the late 1970s I’ve been involved with photography in various forms ever since. I started my current blog in part to document a 52 week photo project I started at the beginning of the year. The 52 week photo project was an idea to get me out and about shooting personal work.

  12. I often meet cool and talented writers who write about exciting things. And when they ask about me, I shuffle awkwardly, look at the floor and reply, “Erm I write a blog about my cat.” And my first post was about him wearing a Cone of Shame. 😳

  13. Thanks for your idea! I’m in my 50s, not travelled much except on the internet. I am an artist trying to make a small living after finishing work last year. I’m mad enough to write about just about anything, whether any of it is any good is up to my readers. I’m trying out writing poems, with trepidation! I’m interested in everything and find this place a bit overwhelming x

  14. Hi all! My name is Makayla and I’m currently residing in Florida, USA. I am brand new here with my third attempt at beginning a blog. I actually made it to my second post and I’m definitely enjoying it a lot. My blog is mostly my inner thoughts on my daily journey throughout life. So the attitude and feel of my posts may vary as each goes up.
    Here is the link if anyone would like to check it out:

    This is such a fun idea and I’m excited to explore your blogs!

  15. Thank you Sam!
    I am from the UK- Norfolk, England, but (with my husband) have sold up, given away 99% of my possessions, left my job and run off to India for a year to reset my life, escape the matrix, experience self realisation and become a writer!
    My blog has been going for four years and is often quite personal. Right now I post draft chapters of the book I am writing- part personal travel diary, part self realisation log book- along with a travel update and a writing update, each Friday.
    On Thursdays I post a post from four years ago- the height of my spiritual awakening and all associated craziness!

    • Hello from Australia! I am delighted you have decided to share your blog here, India is a country I would love to visit and I hope I get the chance in the next few years. You can never be ‘late’ getting into photography, I am in the same boat in the sense that I have been more interested in photography the older I get.

      Happy blogging and I will check your site out 🙂


  17. My hubby and I were fed up with the “American Dream” of debt, materialism, and stress ulcers, so we moved our family to the South Pacific, to try our hand at island life. I blog about finding ways to make travel work for you and our island home, at Traveling Outside-the-Box.


  18. Hi, Sam (and everyone else) My name is Darryl aka “The Globetrotting Grandpa” I am in my mid-fifties and write a lot about travel for the older set. (At least that’s my niche because every “how to blog” article said I had to have one.) I also write a lot about pop culture, history, my weight-loss journey and have a weekly ‘humpday haiku” every Wednesday. I have been following your blog for a while and really enjoy what you do. Thanks for the forum to introduce myself. I’m at if you ever want to check it out.

  20. Hello. I’m Bryntin and I appear on a blog called ‘The Bryntin Project’. I am here because I follow the rather excellent Ellen Hawley (seen above me and I highly recommend her blog) and saw her tweet about being here. So I thought I’d pop along too.

    My blog isn’t really about anything and you won’t learn anything (unlike Ellen’s) but apparently has some moderately entertaining bits as long as you’re not thinking too hard, in the right mood or just drunk.

    Irreverent is a good word for it. Irrelevant is just a close word to irreverent but is also probably about right

    Anyway, a link to a post to get you started.


  21. Hey Sam, Sally here so I am new to your blog and I found this as a very interesting way to introduce myself. Well let’s see where to start from, I was born on……. Wait that’s a bit too early🤦. Anyways I am 16 year old with a passion for creative writing, eating nutella or for that matter anything tasty and sleeping. I love adventures even though I don’t really get to go on adventures which is a bummer and day dreaming too. My blog mostly consists of poems and articles and I love to meet new people(that’s one of the reasons why I started this blog) so don’t forget to visit my blog:
    And yeah I am there on wattpad too so if you are into reading then do follow me there.
    And lastly Thank you Sam for organising this.

    Thank you for giving us this platform Sam, hope to see everyone on my site. 💋


  25. Hi Sam, this is a really nice concept, thank you for allowing people to share on here!
    I’m a fourth-year university student from the UK and have just returned from studying/ travelling in and around Washington D.C, USA for a year.
    I love fashion and journalism, so you can find me delving into this, along with contemporary politics and travel over on my blog! A space where I can curate my thoughts and document all of the above and more, seemed like the perfect way to expand my love for writing and my general interest of such ideas!
    Thank you again for the opportunity to share, so cool!☺️

  26. Danny and I started in December 2017. We are coworkers at the Belgian Rail Company (NMBS / SNCB). We became close friends and travel often together. Danny loves flight and hotel reviews. I have a journalistic background andI have many blogging miles under my belt. So now the question is: why didn’t we start earlier? 😉

    We have three categories: Move, Stay and Experience. It sums up our blog posts: train and flight reviews; hotel reviews and ‘experiences’. Sometimes we bring news.


  27. My name is Linda Troxell. My blog is a mixture of original Christian Poetry and Christian devotional. Each post begins with 3 or 4 scriptures that foreshadow the theme or themes of what follows. Next is an original Christian poem which follows the same theme as the scriptures. The poem is followed by a thought-provoking commentary on the topic of the theme. The commentary is non-threatening but honest; it is informal, sometimes humorous,(I hope) and it often includes personal anecdotes and examples to illustrate the topic or theme. My goal is to explore questions about my walk with Christ; questions which I believe are common to most Christians at one time or another. My hope is that my blog will answer some questions but more important that it will gently prompt the reader to take a closer look at their faith, their prayer life, and their Christian walk. This blog came about when I set out to write and publish a 30 or 40 day devotional that was part poetry, part story, and wholly thought provoking. However, after I had completed 30 days of devotionals and I looked into publishing, it became clear that I did not have the resources (money) to complete such a project. Then someone suggested that I start a blog with the same format and ” Humbly Seeking the Lord” was born. I only hope that the readers are as blessed by reading it as I am by writing it. I look forward to hearing some of your thoughts about the blog along with any constructive criticisms you’d like to share.


  28. Greetings Sam, my name is Giovanny from venezuela in the north of the south!
    I have been reading your blog for a while and really enjoy all that you do, thanx by follow my blog and i will follow u too. in really aprecciate it!
