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?

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.

Beautiful Hijabs From Hidden Pearls [A Review]

Last December I went home to Jogja for a holiday with my family. It was an end-of-semester holiday actually and I spent most of the days with my kids while my husband came later. We stayed at my mom's house which used to be the place I live through my younger years. Coming home and enjoy the atmosphere of romanticism of the past is always wonderful. I took my sons to places I'd like them to see so that they can learn something new. And they would be able to get to know their mom better. I showed them my high school, the local library I used to go, even my elementary school reports. L O L.Related article: Living In A Small Town and How I Feel About ItOn that beautiful morning I took a walk with my sons to local fisheries where they can see ponds and paddy fields. I put my pink batik dress and a Plain Deluxe Hijab from Hidden Pearls on. The hijab covered me beautifully. Even my mom asked me about it. Alhamdulillaah *smile* The hijab is soft, smooth, looks expensive and non see-th…

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 …

Bringing My One-Year-Old Son to Masjid for the First Time

On that fajr time, my first and second son opened the door to go to masjid for fajr salah. Suddenly my one-year-old son cried. He wanted to go with his brothers. I refused his wish, worrying he might be bothering other people by his cries or screams. But, my husband suggested me to bring him. So I walked to masjid with my son in my arms.

I entered the masjid, standing behind some ladies doing their qabliyah fajr salah, waiting for the iqamah. I chose the second row which was the last row of the ladies' area. I still held my son in my arms and he seemed to enjoy the moment.

The salah began. I was lucky there was only a lady at the left meaning that I wasn't in the middle of the row. I was afraid that my son would cry or something because he often did that everytime I do salah at home. I don't know why he behaves like that. Is this mukena (salah cloth) frightenes him? Or is it my flat expression during salah makes him scary?


At masjid I did the takbiratul ihram with one han…
