Alert: A Collaboration Ahead!

Looks like a movie poster, doesn’t it? Of course, I can’t take credit for it, because fellow blogger Tajwar made it. 😛

Cue the drums! The fireworks! The bated breaths and hands ready to clap! Because– [Insert pause for dramatic effect] –epic announcement: I’m doing a blog collaboration with 9 other awesome bloggers! 🎊🎉🎈🎊🎉🎈🎊🎉🎈

(And no, this isn’t the reason why I was so busy last week, but it does add a little to it. 😅)

What is Collaboration with a Purpose?

Unity is strength! Picture from BrainyQuote

While each one of us bloggers may have a different topic, style and reason(s) for blogging, we all wish to do one thing – to reach people. ❤

That’s why in Collaboration with a Purpose, 10 of us bloggers are getting together to bring you this themed collaboration. We pick a day, and when that day comes by, all of us will publish a post on the same day on the same theme! (Time may vary according to time zones. Hey, we need to sleep too!)

Why the same theme? Because for a single theme, you get 10 different stories and takes on it. We want to reach people, and to let people know that they’re not the only one going through what they’re going through. Also because I think it’s fun. 😆

The topic for this round is loss. Loss is a pretty general topic – it could be a loss of sense, of movement, of a relationship, of a loved one, of self, of a wallet to a thief – really anything goes. Because in our world, nothing is permanent, therefore loss is inevitable and everyone goes through it at least once. Or many times.

So where’s the story, you ask?

Well, you know how all those cinemas show you a dramatic movie trailer, making you all excited and jittery and wondering when it’s coming soon, only to see the words “COMING SOON” at the end? Yep, I’m going to do the same right now:


Of course, when I say soon, I really mean soon! I won’t make you wait months and months like the movie trailers. 😆

The Collaborators!

And here’s the list of bloggers taking part, in alphabetical order! I also added little excerpts from their blogs that really caught my eye and will hopefully whet your interest enough to visit their blogs too. 😀

Edited to add: Or you could head over to my Collaboration with a Purpose Index to view all the themes we’ve completed so far!

Hope you’ll look forward to reading our themed posts when they’re out!

A Short Self-Compassionate Letter

Dear Self,

Wow, it’s really incredible to see you going out of your comfort zone and collaborating with other bloggers like this! I know you’ve felt sad and disappointed when past writing collaboration endeavours didn’t work out, so that makes this all the more incredible. This looks really promising, and I wish you luck and motivation to finish that themed post! ❤

  1. It’s a pleasure to collaborate with you. I’m really looking forward to reading the different takes on a common theme. And yes, I loved the intro, specially the part explaining what it all means. Before being part of this even I had very little idea of how this works. Waiting anxiously for the curtain to raise.

    1. Oh, that’s odd; I followed your blog but for some reason they haven’t been appearing in my reader. Oops! Good thing you mentioned it and I’ve re-followed your blog, so let’s hope it’s working now. 😀

      Good luck on your collaboration too! ❤

      1. Yep, at least we found out now! I forgot to mention in my earlier comment (darn squirrel syndrome…); I can’t promise anything, but I’ll be sure to mention your name when we plan the next one. 😀

    2. Hey, Manal, it’s been a while and we’ve got another collaboration coming! As promised, I mentioned your name to Tajwar Fatma (who is one of the organisers), and she asked that you contact her by Facebook at (taken from her blog so I’m sure it’s fine to share here 😆). Do let me know if you don’t have Facebook and we’ll figure out a way to share emails privately. 😀
