(3/6/21) I am coming up on 5 years of blogging, which is amazing to me! I am very thankful for everyone who has chosen to follow this blog and support me with so much encouragement. Early on I read that most bloggers quit after 3 months. I thought I might be among them. At first it was hard but then I discovered I had a voice and could write my fiction and that it might connect with someone out there.
Life in the microcosm has changed. I lost my faithful companion, Scout, my blog mascot, my very good friend on July 2, these thoughts still make me teary. 2020 took its toll on most of us.
Betanda continues to offer us insights on her life and the books she reads.
I am hoping to be more present in the upcoming blogging year because I love being a part of this blogger family world.
(5/6/2020) I have not updated this page in 2 years, which must mean I’ve been ever so busy. 😉
Last December (2019), I welcomed Betanda Shanam to my blog as a reviewer. Betanda is from the English Midlands and from a wonderful loving, sharing family. She’s very lucky because I’ve met her family and they are truly great. She loves books and was hoping to learn how to be a book blogger and a reviewer. I am so pleased that she’s joined me! If you have read Betanda’s reviews and would like her to review something of yours, please read her review policy here. You can also see Betanda’s introduction and bio here.
As for the onward progression of my blog. I hope to offer a lot more writing.
From 6/25/2018. Two years of blogging and I am still discovering the art of blogging as well as discovering who this blogger is. While I have cut back somewhat on the book blogging, I am finding my identity as a writer. But book blogging will always be part of this blog because I can only learn to write by reading.
Scout the Faithful Companion is still with me although we both are growing older and we are still visiting our microcosm, searching out new and unusual things. 🙂
From 5/2017. After a year, I thought it might be time to update the “About.” While I’m still Sascha Darlington and my Faithful Companion is still Scout, long may he reign, my blog has taken on a different shape than how I imagined.
I am a book blogger and still developing and learning as a book blogger…and with that still trying to get organized as a book blogger; it’s a strangely ongoing process–for me.
The name Sascha is ultimately derived from Greek and means warrior. This week I realized that I am becoming a Word Warrior through this blog. I am not battling against words, but, hopefully, with them and still learning their charms and their eccentricities and how to put them together to form tiny bubbles of imagination.
And, for once in my life I am going to say it: I’m a writer.
From 4/2016. I am Sascha Darlington and you could say that I was born in April 2016 because that month I abandoned the safety of my cocoon. Now, I venture into other realms. I invite you to join me and The Faithful Companion, Scout, on a journey around and beyond my microcosm
I love music! I love books! I love mountains and beaches and swamps and animals and wild weather and celestial bodies and things that go bump in the night.
I love for people to share their thoughts, opinions, likes, dislikes. I believe in the sharing of ideas.
