Several writers who wanted just to write an article for the lifestyle magazine Stepping Toes, once or sometimes, but not on a regular basis, needed a place to prepare their article(s) and to publish it on the net. For Stepping Toes readers to look for all the guest-writings a way had to be found to find all those guest-speakers their articles under one heading. From there the creation of this site and the separate marking on Stepping Toes, as if it was from one writer.

Sometimes it can be they want to write some article not suitable for the lifestyle magazine, but still interesting enough to present to the general public, or that one or the other writer wants to reblog an article because he or she finds it worthwhile to promote or wants to comment on it or want to write an article about it. At first those separate writings were to be found on Stepping Toes, where we do hope to find you as a regular reader. But when time past several articles of not such a disputable matter found their way on this platform.

We love to present some nice poems or interesting articles at this site, and do hope you can enjoy them as well can find some other internet writers which otherwise would have stayed in their anonymity.

The team of writers.


We also would like to promote other associated authors and their blogs:

    • Thank you very much for your nomination.

      A few years ago we were already a few times nominated by a few people for the Liebster Award, so that in the end we decided to acknowledge it and to place the symbol on our website. We notice this emblem of the ‘second’ Liebster Awward being a little different, but having already one logo on our site we shall keep to that one.
      Please do know that your nomination is appreciated a lot.

      To give some answers to your questions:

      What made you start blogging?

      We started placing texts on the MSN provision to our messsenger profile in 1995. From then onwards certain necessities showed up and since the change of century also a lot changed in the provision of servers and network providers. On the International or World Wide Web more and more publications found their way, but by the multitude it became difficult to find certain interesting pieces. Lots of good material stayed uncovered because of the multitude of daily postings. Lots of people also do not have the opportunity to spend much time on the internet or have to fit in their search in their precious free time. Therefore we wanted to select some writings we encountered and we thought could be worthwhile a read. We wanted to present our readers a selection of interesting articles and as such presenting them with a readers digest. But we found it also necessary to do this with the background of the task given by our master teacher, rabbi Jeshua, proclaiming the coming Kingdom of God and showing the Way to the Divine Creator , whom we think as many people should come to know as possible.

      I have to purchase every book I read. Do you?

      We cannot purchase all the books we want or which we read. We are pleased that there are public libraries providing enough good material to read at a reasonable price.

      I have a spreadsheet of all of my books to guard against theft (aka borrowers not returning items) and other calamities. Do you?

      Bad experiences of people not returning books or other items, made us to make lists of those given out works. Our own big library and archive we gave out to a non-governemental institution to guard it (with a team of about 30 people) and to have it all digitally recorded and on files as well. That library and archive had become to big and heavy for the structure of a normal living quarter or ordinary four floor house. for the small library when material is given out notes are taken of the borrower.

      I run yearly maintenance on my books, giving them a good airing and checking for damp. What lengths do you go to to care for your books?

      In the big library and archive professional tools, (damp meters etc.) take care against mould, paper eaters and all dangerous stuff which could damage the books, audio and pictorial material. People looking into certain books have only allowance to certain departments or certain works depending on their function and reason of viewing. No works are given out and certain works may only be looked at in particular circumstances, special controlled temperature and humidity and with white gloves.

      In the second house (our Christadelphian office) we must be happy with ordinary airing and central heating. Also at our private homes we must be happy with ordinary house comfort material (central heating).

      To paraphrase the poet Barry Manilow…Questions 2-4 show How Deep Is My Love for books. Can you tell me something that demonstrates How Deep Is Your Love for books?
      Do you have a favourite song based on a book?

      We appreciate very much any work of literature and the magic touch people can have with their pen.
      Concerning our religious work the main work is the Book of books, the Bible, and with it we have the Psalms from that Bestseller of all times.

  8. You’ve been reblogging my posts. You are taking credit for my work. You didn’t ask permission. I don’t know who you people are. This isn’t right for you to do.


    • Dear madam, nowhere did we ever take credit for your work. That we did not ask permission to reblog some of your articles was because you yourself provided us to reblog some of your articles.

      We never did do as if those posts were ours. You mention that on some of your reactions of those reblogs. Where do you get that from?

      On your site you yourself placed a ‘Reblog’ possibility. If you do not want people to reblog one of your articles, you should not place the tool to reblog, to afterwards then accuse people of wrongly reposting your article on their site.

      In any case with pleasure we shall take away our free advertisement to your site, so that not more people would read those articles that we found worthwhile to be read.

      Very strangely enough we noticed you also wrote an accusing article on your site. Because we are not sure you shall dare to place our reaction we also give it here, so that our readers might also have an opportunity to see how you handle this case and how e try to handle you with respect which you do not regards us:

      In reaction to “I am NOT your guest speaker

      Dear Madam,

      You not only accuse us of certain things we did ‘unrighteous’ according to you, whilst you yourself place a reblog button underneath your posts, you also write on your site an article to blasphemously accuse us of doing unrighteous actions.

      We never did do as if the reblogged posts were ours. Where do you get that from?
      Nowhere did we ever take credit for your work. That we did not ask permission to reblog some of your articles was because you yourself provided us to reblog some of your articles.

      Already many years ago, at the commencement of the website “From Guestwriters” that reblogged your articles, we presented ourselves and told our readers the aims of that site “From Guestwriters” mentioning that this site is presenting a “Readers Digest” like the printed edition “Readers Digest”, offering a selection of interesting news and publications.

      Nowhere, ever, did we do as if your work would have been our work. Instead of keeping our readers to our own site, we directed them to your site by reblogging your articles, and as such giving you the opportunity to receive more readers and for us giving the possibility to even lose readers.

      On your site you yourself placed a ‘Reblog’ possibility. If you do not want people to reblog one of your articles, you should not place the tool to reblog, to afterwards then accuse people of wrongly reposting your article on their site.

      We also nowhere acted like you would be part of our blog or even of our allies or of our movement.

      In case you would have read our reasons for existing and what we want to do with proposing to our readers worthwhile articles of others, you should have seen you have no reason to complain. Instead, you should have been pleased that we found some of your articles interesting enough to present them to our readers.

      In any case with pleasure we shall take away our free advertisement to your site, so that not more people would read those articles that we found worthwhile to be read.

      You not only use very unchristian words, though you do as if you are a Christian.

      You also claim to have us reblogged articles which would have been placed in “Privat Mode”. Though we could find them easily on WordPress and could fully read them and reblog them with the tool provided under the message.
      You further write

      ” The posts you re-blogged, I have placed into Private Mode. You cannot have them. I expect you to remove what remains, which are my “titles,” from your site. I will continue to check on your progress.

      Invites will be sent to folks I already approve of and trust so you may have access to the posts that have been placed into private mode. Thank you for your respectfulness, support and patience.

      You further accuse us of not been able to correctly use WordPress.

      Learn correct conduct WORDPRESS.

      And after accusing us of being “thieves” you strangely wants to spread such venomous and unwarranted comments

      Ya bunch of dirty thieves!
      Share this:

      And again you ask even people to share your message on the net, whilst in the above message you unjustly accuse others, who acted in good faith and advertised for you, of having correctly shared your articles, not telling lies at all as you do in your article here.

      We may not be the youngest, but we believe we have a fairly good understanding of how WordPress works and how it can be used.
      In good faith, we try to be respectful to everyone who, like us, uses WordPress and other blog forms.
      We do notice that sometimes people accuse us of not using WordPress correctly when they themselves give rise to misunderstandings or to such reblogging, where they have placed a reblogging button under their article, while they do not want their article to be reblogged. By doing so, they themselves cause misunderstandings and friction, which could have been avoided if they had not used such a tool or widget.
      It is unfortunate and also disrespectful when they then unjustly accuse the re-blogger and call him names and/or use ugly words.


  9. For this website we search the net for interesting articles, to present them to our readers. We, by presenting a reader’s digest, only reblog articles when they are provided by a “Reblog” widget.

    It is impossible to go and ask every blogger, who has such a “Reblog” under his or her article, if we may reblog his or her article. Placing a Reblog button under an article gives us the impression that the article may reblogged.
    When we reblog an article we never have the intention to do as if the article is written by us; We always try also to tag the writer of the article, so that readers also can find other articles by the same author. Naturally when the blogwriter nowhere provides his or her name, we then naturally can not print his or her name, because it is not known to us.

    As you can see from the remark above such situations where we are accused of reblogging without having permission, create very resentment and unpleasant situations.

    This also removes the incentive for us to do all that work for others to make their texts and websites known for free.

    That is why we would also like to ask bloggers to think seriously before they post their texts with a “reblog” button and by doing so give the impression to others that the text may be placed on someone else’s platform.
