Welcome!

My friend, welcome to my blog!

I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason, and your landing on this treasured space of mine is no exemption. It is not an accident that you have found my writings here amidst the vast, crazy digital world. The meaning of our unexpected encounter in this personal rendezvous may not be clear at this moment, but it will surely make sense someday.

Thank you for being here!

As you move across my blog, I want to give you some guidelines to help you navigate effectively and get the most of my life stories, adventures, and insights.

Be authentic

I appreciate an honest feedback on my articles so please take a moment to leave a comment if and when you can. However, please be cautious, sensitive, and responsible with your words and avoid posting comments that can be interpreted as derogatory, racist, or overly critical. Try to communicate your points in a positive tone even when you have to disagree with something.

React and interact

As I write, I try to put substance to my contents as best as I can, but there are times when I get things all mixed up. If I tend to be incoherent or if my writings don’t make sense at all, let me know. Your suggestions and opinions will always count so they are certainly most welcome.

Read and share

My posts have usually a minimum of 1,000 words so kindly read patiently because I don’t want you to miss any details. If you come across a post, a line, a quote that struck you or that you can relate to, you can utilize the social media buttons at the end of each post to share it with your network. When you do so, please tag or mention me (@jaysonsnts) so I can at least say “hi” or “hello” and thank you.

Explore and search

There are various ways that you can search for articles that might be of interest to you. The Pages tabs below the blog title group my posts in six broad topics that are close to my heart. Hover to the Writings dropdown tab to see the list of these topics. Then, they are further categorized into more specific labels or Tags which you can find at the end of each article and on the sidebar, along with other Related Posts.

To read more of the articles I’ve written as far back as 2013, you can browse the Site Map section on the footer navigation menu. If you got something in mind, look it up using the Search Bar and results matching your keywords or phrases will be displayed. Another section that you can find useful is the Popular Stories, which displays posts that have the most active conversations.

Share a part of yourself

Strip yourself of pretensions, bare your soul, and share your thoughts and feelings. If you would like to share your personal story, you can visit the Share Your Story page, send me a message, and I will respond to you as soon as I can. Depending on your location and my availability, we can also opt to meet personally and swap stories while we spend a moment together having a cup of coffee or milk tea, walking on the beach, running on the road or nature’s trail, swimming on the blue sea, watching the sunset, or simply sitting under your favorite tree.

Again, I am very glad that you stop by even for just a moment and by reading an article or two, I hope that I am able to give you something to think about.

Together, let us travel to the depths of human spirit; connect with our inner thoughts and feelings; discover the joys and pains of living; and learn to LIVE, LOVE, and SHARE.

May you find good things here. Happy reading!

Blessings & Love,
Jayson
