Blogging Collaboration, One of My Happy Moments in Blogging

There is a specific reason why I blog. I’m a full-time SAHM and sometimes I need to release my feelings or ideas. When I see something nice to share, for example, I feel I need to talk to someone about it. But sometimes there is no someone beside me whom I can talk to. So, I need another way to talk. I found the way and I’m happy it. It’s blogging.

I started blogging seriously in 2013. I run a blog titled damarojat which is my main blog. It’s written in Indonesian. I call myself ‘blogger’ not long before this. I felt not confident enough to address myself that way. Once after I joined some blogger communities, I started to feel comfortable with the ‘blogger’ title. I even declare ‘blogger’ as my job now and my blogs as my workplaces. I feel great to run my blogs. I’m proud to be a blogger. But that’s not all. I find great things in blogging: new friends, new knowledge, new activities, jobs and many more. Who says that blogging is a waste of time?

What Kind of Blogging Collaboration?


One of my happy moments as a blogger is when I do a blogging collaboration with other bloggers. I actually have done this kind of work twice. The first is Arisan Link Group or link exchanges group with some bloggers. In this program, each blogger must write a review about others' blog based on an agreed schedule. Each month there is a winner who will earn internal links from other bloggers in the group.

The second one is a blogging collaboration based on topic with some bloggers. Each week or two there is a topic to be written and each member must link to one another. It’s exciting because each of us need to push ourselves to write a certain topic which sometimes something we don’t master about.

My third blogging collaboration is this one. My English Post Collaboration.
Actually I joined an English Blogger Club before, but after some time well running, the club started to stop. I feel sad about it. I got many advantages from that club, especially the chance to write not in my mother language. But what can I do? It’s already frozen now. So, after some time, I decided to do a collaboration again in English. I asked several fellow bloggers to join me. And finally I got a partner. Alhamdulillah. She’s Annisa Nurjannah owner of Paper Crane . She’s the only one! And we’ve entered our third topic this week!

We agree to write posts in English every two weeks with certain topic. As English is not our mother language, we decided to write short, simple posts with simple topics and provide links to each other. Our main goal is to write at least 300 words. But, hey, look at our writings! Some of them exceed the minimum limit! Isn’t that great?

Why Blogging Collaboration?

What are the advantages of blogging collaboration? It gives our blog links from other blogs, which means can elevate our blog’s reputation or rank. It’s essential to have good rank, right? Blogs with good ranks have the chance to earn more page views and better jobs. A blogging collaboration also gives us the opportunity to write more frequently and in a wide range of topics.

I’m really happy to reach this milestone. I think it’s possible for us to make it better in the future.

So, guys, do you have any collaboration experience? What is it? Are you happy with it? Please share it with me.

Kids Activity: Three Legged Compound Word Race

Hi, Moms and Dads. Learning by playing is kid's stuff. What about building vocabulary? There is a fun activity to do with your kids explained in this guest post by, it's three legged compound word race.

If you are interested in guest posting, please feel free to contact me.

Happy reading!


In second grade, kids work hard to "sound out" new words as they build up their reading vocabulary. Sometimes, it’s easy; other times, more challenging…and if you’re new reader, having a few patterns up your sleeve can really help things along. One very useful tool is understanding “compound words”—long words that are really made from two shorter, familiar ones, combined.

Here’s a goofy party or park game for a bunch of second grade kids who are learning to read long words. Play it once, play it many times—it should still be good for learning and laughs.

Why Moms of Today Are More Fragile Compared To Their Seniors

I read a nice blog post yesterday about moms of today who seem more fragile than moms in the past. I agree a lot with the article and I try to write something about it, too.
As a mom of three who live in a modern life, I experience growing kids in different situations.
My first son was born 8 years ago at the time when facebook was just about to gain its popularity. I remember my brother told me to try facebook and he said, "people of our ages are there too." What he actually meant was he tried to convince me that this kind of social media was not too young for me unlike the previous social media which was fully loaded by youngsters: friendsters.
I, at first, was not sure to join facebook but then I read an article in a magazine and then I decided to try it out. And here I am now, a facebooker. Not long after that I had another baby, my second son who was born only 14 months after his big brother. I raised these two kids as if I had twins. They looked alike and they swal…

Purity And Prayer: An Islamic Children Rhyming Picture Book

In my younger years I once loved listening to nasheed (Islamic songs). Many songs I listened and memorized from groups of male to female nasheed group. I even handled a group of nasheed during my college years about 20 years ago. The rise of Islamic living was about to blossom at the moment. Hijabis had been started to appear here and there in campus.
Nasheed changed the way I spent my time. The guilty feeling of listening to music became smaller. I don't listen to music anymore now (gonna tell you later about it insha Allah) but nasheed was one good choice for me.
What I liked the most from nasheed is the rhyme. I am quite an auditory learner so I found rhyming is so much fun. It is more fun when comes to learning something. Kindergartens learn things through songs and rhymes as well.
What about learning Islam through rhymes? I have a great news! Book publisher, Prolance, has released a book called Purity & Prayer: Rhyming Picture Book of Sacred Rulings by Ameena Bint Abdir …
