Questions From Divine-Royalty are….

1. When did you start blogging?
I started blogging 10 years ago, in December of 2010

2. How did you feel when launching your site?
I felt skeptical. I was talked into it, by my virtual publicist. I asked, “what will I ever find to say, after my first post?” Now it’s 10 years later:)

3.What was your first post about?
My post announced my first published virtual poetry book of poetry that had just gone on sale, entitled, Digital Rabbit Hole.

4.Did you after some time change it? Why?
I really never changed my blogging format that concentrated on virtual stories, my live readings, videos I made, virtual worlds I created and my poetry.

5.How do you contribute through blogging to make the world a better place?
I would hope my blog is a source of knowledge about the possibilities of virtual worlds, and touching common human feelings and connecting with others all over the world through my poetry.

6.How do you find inspiration to write?
I have been been writing all my life since about 9 years old. I find inspiration in Everything! I find inspiration in Life and also daily in my virtual life. Art works inspire me and Music helps me tap into the poetry flow.

7.Who motivates you when you feel like quitting?
I have never felt I could quit. It is hard to just quit being what you have always been, in my case a poet. I have had periods of less activity blogging, but I have never felt like I wanted to quit.

8. How do you handle negative comments?
I guess I have been lucky to not have been bombarded by many negative comments. The few I have had, that I think were given to me sincerely, I looked at and tried to see my post from their eyes. Did they have a point?

9.Your favorite time spent?
That is an easy question for me, smiles. I am my happiest creating something: writing, composing music, making films or building 3D worlds, even preparing and delivering Live Poetry Readings Virtually.

10.Your favorite people to spent time with?
I love creative and intelligent people, who are deeply sensitive, compassionate and connect to all humanity. I love spending time in both the real world and the virtual world with people who are wise yet humble, generous and giving.

11.Your favorite place?
My favorite place in my real life is a room where I write, with big windows that look out into the trees and jungle with a feeding station for birds right on the window sill. In my virtual life, my favorite spot is my island, LINC Island, that I have slowly built and created over 12 years.

    • Why thank you Sundaram…It was fun answering them too. As I said to another blogger, this is a great way to get to know a bit more about us..what brought us to blogging and why we’re still here. As I said, I had just written a Virtual poetry book and was about to launch it hehe. Check out the little video someone made about the event..Smiles we really took it all very seriously and they were fun events. I did not make this little video, and looking back it was the very beginning of screen capture filming Enjoy it! https://youtu.be/hda6KKFDidQ

    This is sooo exciting. Not enough people are familiar with your work. I know you like to remain incognito, but your work needs to be out there as you have so much to contribute. By the way…. Your answers to those questions were flawless! No one better than you at expressing yourself like a pro!
