Bloggers Name Amelia Winter
Blog Name The Beautiful Traveller
Bio
I’m Amelia, a travel professional who got married and had kids and decided to go back to uni! So my blog is about exploring the passion I still have for travel while juggling home, kids, a very ambitious husband and my own dreams and ambitions as I work towards a new career. I feel like many people my age these days think that in order to see the world, they have to pack up and go for months or even years at a time. I could never do that as I love my life and my responsibilities, so I want to show women like me that it’s okay to want a home life, a family, and a successful career and still want to explore the world. And yes, that you can do both!

Blog Name You Can Always Start Now http://www.youcanalwaysstartnow.com/
Bio I am an accidental blogger. I thought I was signing up for admin rights to a friend’s blog. After banging away at WordPress thinking I was entering passwords that were NOT taking I ended up with a blog. Now I can’t imagine not blogging. I’m trying to live without regrets (or at least less). Blogging has helped me push my boundaries in various areas. It has made me more focused and challenged me to rethink things. Now when I am out in the world I think “is this a blog post?” Learning opportunity? I am open to exploring possibilities and my blog is a way to help me keep that front and center.

Bloggers Name – Anindya Rakshit
Blog Name – https://mydailyjournalonline.com/
Bio – I hail from a beautiful city called Calcutta in the eastern part of India. Born in the late 70’s.

An Ex-Banker, currently dabbling in the Insurance sector, here are a few things I love to do apart from blogging. I love everything connected with music excluding performing myself, though I can sing a fair bit, love watching movies, an avid reader of books, love making new friends, love playing Table Tennis which is my favorite sport I do, and also I love traveling to mountains and seaside. My blog name is Mydailyjournalonline. Initially, in my blogging journey, I had started a music blog with a specific name containing Music in it. Later I realized that it is becoming difficult for me to write on varied topics that I want to write about, being it a music blog in particular. That’s why I decided to rename the blog and shift it to self-hosting since I wanted the blog to be my daily journal where I can write on virtually anything that comes to my mind without any restrictions.

My blog is very personal in nature. It doesn’t follow any set or laid down guidelines or principles. I write in a communicative mode to my readers, using suitable images from time to time, illustrations too. My style is simple, easy to follow and understand, so you may say 😊

Blog Name Three Sisters Abroad
Bio Thank you Esme Slabs for this: Hi my name is Bree and I am the youngest sister of 3sistersabroad.wordpress.com
My sisters are Muriel – the eldest and Paula. We also have a brother Gavin but he hasn’t been on any of our trips. The blog started when we were on holidays in Europe in 2016. We were on a cruise and a few of the passengers were a bit toffy nose to us. So we would sit around over a few wines and have a giggle about “when we become famous”. I was the one who suggested to blog. So here we are! I hope you enjoy our travels. I will also blog about chronic Illness. I have a few – Tuberous Sclerosis, Lam Lung disease, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis, Meniers disease, High blood pressure.
I think thats it 📷:)

Bloggers Name Claire Saul
Blog Name Pain Pals Blog
Bio I am a mum to 3 young adults, blogging about living family life with a chronic illness. I was a nurse but was “pensioned off due to disability” – no pension involved! My first major back surgery was at 21, but I had continued working for many years, but this time it was not to be. I have a genetic connective tissue disorder called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and my condition has really deteriorated over the last few years, now affecting my nervous system and gut, and causes daily dislocations. My kids are all affected with my daughter being formerly diagnosed aged 14. So….facing yet another back operation for the chronic nerve pain in my back and leg, I decided to write a blog…..and have discovered a whole new world of friends and support.

Bio A Christian creative, housebound with chronic illness.
I used to teach English in Italy, then moved to England where I worked with children with special needs. I loved my job, but fell ill in 2015 and have been housebound with severe ME/CFS ever since. I blog about living a life of hope with chronic illness. I share my faith, I also write about the ketogenic diet I use to manage my symptoms. I share my art, crafts and journal layouts too. I hope to raise awareness of this very misunderstood condition and encourage others who live with it daily.

Bloggers Name Carol Taylor
Blog Name Orienthailiving
Bio Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them. I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.

Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use to have to improve our health and wellbeing. I will be showing you cooking pots and dishes used here and local traditionist hat I discover on my travel and interesting places to visit. I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!

Bloggers Name: Debra Purdy Kong
Hi Esme, I’m happy to be part of this group and hope to learn and connect with other bloggers.
Blog Name: Mystery Deb,

Bio: I’ve been writing for over 35 years, beginning with short fiction, essays, and the occasional article. By the second decade of writing, I was working on my first couple of mystery novels, and have published nine so far, both through self-publishing and traditional publishing. Learning the business side of publishing and marketing a novel, prompted me to start blogging about ten years ago first at Blogspot then on my website, and now I use WordPress. I’m also an avid reader and book reviewer. I have a couple of part-time jobs, so life is busy. My kids are grown, and these days I’m spending more time with my mother whose health is slowly failing. I live in Port Moody, British Columbia (about 30 minutes east of Vancouver).

Bio I am a retired criminal defense attorney. I write, weave, play with my Cocker Spaniels, and sing. My blog covers everything from my travels to my dogs to my singing with the San Luis Obispo (California) Vocal Arts Ensemble. Unfortunately (or fortunately), none of that describes me totally. I am rather eclectic in taste and behavior. I am intense and frivolous and caring and thoughtless. I still consider myself a conundrum.

Hi Esme. I’m finally getting around to doing this.
Blogger’s name: Gloria McBreen
Blog names: We Are Holistic and Tasheenga Writes Here

Bio: I live in the west of Ireland and I’m married to Mr. Super Patient Man Ever! Four kids. Three of them are adults now, and late to the party, we have Little Miss Seven. I have five grandchildren(yep). I love blogging but at the moment I’m obsessed with working on my novel and my poor blogs are feeling a little bit unloved! It’s my first novel and I’m very very very slow. I’m enjoying it so much though. I really enjoy checking in with Esme’s group, SIPB, although I don’t always have time to interact as much as I’d like. Trying to get the balance right!

Bloggers Name Joanne D. Gilbert
Blog Name Joanne D. Gilbert
Bio A resident of Las Vegas since 2004, Award-winning author, and popular public-speaker, Joanne D. Gilbert, grew up in Oak Park, Michigan—a predominantly Jewish suburb of Detroit, where many Holocaust Survivors had settled. Knowing them well, and hearing about their experiences made a profound impact on Joanne’s life. Her most profound influence, however, was her beloved Grand-mother, Millie Wineman Ron, who had been able to get out of Vilna, Lithuania before the Germans came. Except for Millie’s 2 brothers, the rest of her large family were murdered by the Germans — along with most of Lithuania’s Jewish people.

Throughout her life, Joanne was haunted by two questions:
1. Did the Jews fight the Nazis?
2. Did Gentiles help their Jewish friends and neighbors? After a 40 year career in education, Joanne was finally able to search for answers to these questions. She traveled throughout Europe, Canada, and the US finding and meeting elderly women who, as teenagers, had successfully defied the Nazis. Her Award-Winning first book, “WOMEN OF VALOR: Polish Resisters to the Third Reich,” was published to outstanding reviews in 2014. She is currently working on 2 books: “WOMEN OF VALOR: German, French, and Dutch Resisters to the Third Reich,” and for Young Adults, “A Victory for Miriam.” Among her many speaking engagements in the US and Canada, Joanne was especially honored to be a speaker at the 2015 Krakow Jewish Cultural Festival, and she looks forward to being a presenter in Warsaw this August, at the International Association of Jewish Genealogy Societies Annual Convention.

Bloggers Name Marian Beaman
Blog Name “Plain and fancy girl”
Bio I am a writer/blogger who grew up Mennonite in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania with a career as an educator spanning several decades. In 2018, I retired from teaching English composition and literature at Florida State College in Jacksonville. Along with my work as a community activist leading a neighborhood to take on Walmart expansion, I have been blogging about my Mennonite life and other topics that strike my fancy since 2013.
In 2014 I contributed to My Gutsy Story Anthology, Volume 2 with my article “Gutsy in Ukraine.” The September 2016 issue of The Mennonite magazine featured my article entitled: Making Love Edible: Lessons from Fannie Martin Longenecker. I am currently at work on a patient profile for the Jacksonville Arts & Antiques magazine. Fitness training and Pilates classes at the gym relieve the neck and shoulder aches from hours on the computer.
My major work in progress is a memoir set in the Lancaster County, Pennsylvania landscape of my Mennonite childhood. I hope for a Mother’s Day 2019 publication date, fingers-crossed!

Bio I’m a writer and reader from the U.S.’s Rust Belt (the post-industrial upper Midwest). I started the blog in an effort to reconnect with the literature (and other arts and culture) coming out of my native place, as I now live in Maryland. I have an MFA in Creative Writing and am a fiction writer, but blogging has been a great platform to try out my essayist’s voice—even a little humor (though my kids still don’t think I’m funny)—and to connect with a wonderfully supportive global community. At my blog, I feature author interviews, guest photography, book reviews, my own musings and more. I’m happy to be here. Thank you for this group, Esme, and to Orla for inviting me!

Bloggers Name Shannon Cunningham
Blog Name Must Hike Must Eat
Bio Hi! As you can guess, my blog is about hiking (outdoor adventures) and eating (recipes and my favorite places to eat before and after outdoor adventures). I ramble about other aspects of my life like parenting, health, and social issues and I follow a paleo lifestyle to combat arthritis and the trials of perimenopause. I live in the Pacific Northwest of the United States and enjoy hiking, backpacking and reaching summits of local mountains and traveling the States visiting our National Parks and Monuments. I have been a single parent since 2000 but recently remarried adding 5 more to make a family of 7. Yikes!

Bloggers Name  Hi Esme, Willow Willers here, I am very pleased to meet you.
Blog Name Willowdot21
Bio I am the mum of three boys all now grown and flown to live their own lives. Luckily they do keep in touch and visit often. I now have two beautiful grandsons. When I started this blog I had not long come home from the hospital after an accident in which I broke my back. ( I have broken my back twice). I was in the hospital for a month and had three operations. It has taken me a long time to recover, I am still recovering but every day my body is getting stronger. It has taken a huge toll on me mentally I had to retire early on health grounds, I had to come to terms with finding out people I thought were friends were not. I had to make a new life for myself. Things I could do easily have become difficult.  Writing poetry and prose has helped me a great deal, in fact, I think it has saved my life.  I love blogging I have made so many good friends. I have attended three of the four Annual Bloggers Bashes and I am looking forward to the next one in June 2019

    • Hi Ashwini – Welcome again to the group and thank you for adding your social media and info here. I will update it all tonight once back from work.

  2. Hi Esme, my details are as follows :

    Bloggers Name – Anindya Rakshit
    Blog Name – https://mydailyjournalonline.com/
    Bio – I hail from from a beautiful city called Calcutta in the eastern part of India. Born in the late 70’s.

    An Ex Banker, currently dabbling in the Insurance sector, here are few things I love to do apart from blogging. I love everything connected with music excluding performing myself, though I can sing a fair bit, love watching movies, avid reader of books, love making new friends, love playing Table Tennis which is my favorite sport I do, and also I love travelling to mountains and seaside. My blog name is Mydailyjournalonline. Initially in my blogging journey, I had started a music blog with specific name containing Music in it. Later I realized that it is becoming difficult for me to write on varied topics that I want to write about, being it a music blog in particular. That’s why I decided to rename the blog and shift it to self hosting, since I wanted the blog to be my daily journal where I can write on virtually anything that comes to my mind without any restrictions.

    My blog is very personal in nature. It doesn’t follow any set or laid down guidelines or principles. I write in a communicative mode to my readers, using suitable images from time to time, illustrations too. My style is simple, easy to follow and understand, so you may say 😊

    I am also trying to write a book, (a crime thriller) but at 29000 words I am struggling with it so then started writing my blog. I know I need to write my book too…

  4. Hi Esme! Apologies! I thought I had already done this — but it appears not!

    • Hi Alice, thanks I will update the SIPB Members Info doc immediately if not sooner. Thanks for being part of the group and sharing ♥

  5. Hi Esme. I’m finally getting around to doing this.
    Blogger’s name: Gloria McBreen
    Blog names: We Are Holistic and Tasheenga Writes Here
    Bio: I live in the west of Ireland and I’m married to Mr Super Patient Man Ever! Four kids. Three of them are adults now, and late to the party, we have Little Miss Seven. I have five grandchildren(yep). I love blogging but at the moment I’m obsessed with working on my novel and my poor blogs are feeling a little bit unloved! It’s my first novel and I’m very very very slow. I’m enjoying it so much though. I really enjoy checking in with Esme’s group, SIPB, although I don’t always have time to interact as much as I’d like. Trying to get the balance right!

    Bloggers Name: Debra Purdy Kong
    Blog Name: Mystery Deb, https://debrapurdykong.wordpress.com/
    Bio:
    I’ve been writing for over 35 years, beginning with short fiction, essays, and the occasional article. By the second decade of writing, I was working on my first couple of mystery novels, and have published nine so far, both through self-publishing and traditional publishing. Learning the business side of publishing and marketing a novel, prompted me to start blogging about ten years ago first at blogspot, then on my website, and now I use WordPress. I’m also an avid reader and book reviewer. I have a couple of part-time jobs, so life is busy. My kids are grown, and these days I’m spending more time with my mother whose health is slowly failing. I live in Port Moody, British Columbia (about 30 minutes east of Vancouver).
