Monster Under My Bed

I saw a monster beneath my bed,

He stared at me with a three-eyed head.

He grinned at me with his rotten teeth,

and beckoned me with his smelly feet.

So I went inside and was fairly surprised,

When I saw a kitchen and a bed king-sized.

I was given some water,

Which was served by his daughter.

He looked at me for a while and said,

“Why don’t you have a three-eyed head?”

I told him, “My friend,

Having two eyes is just the new trend!”

He looked at me bewildered and said,

“I must get an eye cut off my head!”

Tree of life

Oh tree, so strong and tall,

’ere comes autumn,

and off your leaves fall.

the fruits you bore,

so ripe and juicy,

and sweet to the core,

With golden boughs,

you are so fair,

but man cuts you down,

without a care.

so all men stop

and hear,

you shouldn’t chop,

or lo and behold,

the trees of life,

shall become cold,

and dry.

Insane Dreams: The thoughts of a 12 year old…

My doodle

Nightmares and fairytales,

are running through my head.

Black ghouls and fingernails,

are filling me with dread.

Huge ships with torn sails,

are sailing down my lane.

Politics and rocket science,

are making me insane.

Freakin’ clowns and teddy bears,

are standing by my door.

octopus and dinosaurs,

are doing my household chores.

Over – flowing ideas,

and confusion in my head.

Its time for me to end this,

let me get up from my bed.


Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
