Diversity Topics: Things to Know About the Irish

Fancy myself a freelance writer so I joined various online writing communities that allow me to publish my jibber jabber.  Wizzley and HubPages are such communities.  In addition to these publishing platforms being great places to write and express yourself; they are equally fantastic places to read and learn about almost anything! For example, traveling around the world is only a dream for me; but the writers at these sites take me to all the wonderful places I'd like to go.  Some take me to magical historical places like Ireland.

Fellow freelance writers have written some very interesting articles about Ireland. Always knew there was way more to this land of enchantment than shamrocks and leprechauns. On hearing the music of Enya, one can not help but become curious about a mystical place that can produce that kind of awesome talent!! The thing is, she comes from a whole family of gifted musicians!! What is in the water over there???  :)

Sharing a few articles that are very informative, educational and enjoyable reading!

Examining what it means to have Irish blood, outlining where Irish DNA comes from and who are the closest genetic relatives of the Irish in Europe. Of interest to anyone with Irish ancestry who wants to understand their genealogy.

Modern Day Arabs and Their Father Abraham


Genealogy has been and always will be a topic of interest to human beings. We are all curious about our beginnings or origins. These days some even pay for expensive DNA tests to see if they can determine their ancestry. Others comb through paper documents, computerized records, etc. and/or combine the findings of the research of historical records with the scientific test results to confirm their lineage. Some people search the scriptures.

We know the Hebrew patriarch Abraham had many sons and that God promised him that his descendants would be innumerable.  One of his sons was Ishmael born to him by Hagar, the Egyptian slave, who served as a surrogate mother for Sarah, his wife.  

The Ishmaelites were, are, or should be the descendants of Ishmael. For genealogy purposes, this matter seems pretty cut and dry. But who are the true Ishmaelites?

Write at TreasurePen.com and You Can Earn A Red Cent! (Strikethrough!)

UPDATE June 21, 2017:

For reasons that I have been unable to determine this website disappeared.  So this post and other posts written at this blog tagged TreasurePen.com or TreasurePen, are either my content which I am glad to have saved and published here and/or my first impressions of this site which can now be completely ignored.

No biggie!  These days I'm hanging out at sites like ForumCoin.com

TreasurePen is an online writing platform that pays you to write short posts similar to how you share messages on Facebook or Twitter. All you need is a Google Adsense account. Yes it is a revenue-sharing platform just like all the other bazillion platforms out there. But all the platforms aren't so easy to write for. That's what makes Treasure Pen appealing. 

My first post was published January 2014. Haven't been there quite 6 months, and also have not been extremely active because there are other new sites I am experimenting with as well for contrast and comparison. But this is a legitimate potential income stream for freelance writers and people who work at home.

I'm an "amateur".  Started publishing content at Medium.com a few years back.  Haven't been banned yet!  😂   They are gracious enough to not only allow my republished content, but it's OK if I leave comments.  The articles are very enlightening, on a wide rang of topics from science and technology to religion and philosophy to books and music and more.  One of the "professional people" even asked if they could publish one of my articles in their publication.  I was so honored.

My article "Successful People Who Studied Abroad" was published in Higher Education Revolution.

My Twitter Weekend Wrap-Up

Paper.li is a tool that helps you publish your own online newspaper. How cool is that? You can create and publish your very own "Daily Planet " with news items of interest to you that might be of interest to other readers also.


Republishing Previously Published Content

Information for those who used to contribute to YAHOO Voices before that network was shut down. What many of us liked about the YCN (YAHOO Contributor Network) was that it accepted "previously published articles". What was really great was that payment was actually received for articles that had been sitting at another site for well over a year with almost nothing to show for it!


Earn Money For Publishing Short Posts

Daily Two Cents (dailytwocents.com ) is an online writing community very different from the others. It's pay-per-view, includes social networking, and allows the writer or contributor to earn 100% on their affiliate referral links. That's right! NO REVENUE SHARING!! You keep what you earn!

Real Lost Cities: Ophir or Atlantis?

King Solomon sent ships to Ophir to bring back almug (or algum) trees, along with gold and precious stones.

Research about Ophir's geographical location is scant. 

In short, no one seems to know where it is!

If it is ever found, it will probably be by accident, because everybody keeps searching for Atlantis. 

The last bit of recorded information we have about Ophir is that the ships that set sail to go there which were sent by another king, never made it to their destination!

So I can sort of understand why people would rather go look for Atlantis.  Atlantis disappeared. Not the folks who were looking for it!!!  (O.o)

Solomon and the Plan for the Temple, as in 1 K...

  • 1 Kings 9:28  - And they came to Ophir, and fetched from thence gold, four hundred and twenty talents, and brought it to king Solomon. 
  • 1 Kings 10:11  - And the navy also of Hiram, that brought gold from Ophir, brought in from Ophir great plenty of almug trees, and precious stones. 
  • 1 Kings 22:48  - Jehoshaphat made ships of Tharshish to go to Ophir for gold: but they went not; for the ships were broken at Eziongeber.

magnificent splendor!!!

Alexandria's Alternate Endings to Portions of England's History

Are you a history buff or maybe just a person who thinks it would be cool to rewrite history with your own alternate ending?  Perhaps you could fix things up so that the Titanic and the sister ship that came after, Britannic, would not both sink!! (Yes. I know it's American history. Trying to make a point here! Just stay with me on this. :) )

 

Meet Alexandria Ingham.

Alexandria Ingham 

Passionate educated historian with a degree in Computer Science and a self-described "writerolic".


She contributes articles to various sites and is publishing a series under a general umbrella title "Alternate History" via Wizzley.com. She is re-writing parts of the history of England, if you're interested. Below are links to two examples of her interesting "What If" scenarios. Curiously enough, the thoughts had actually crossed my mind.
 

- What If Edward VI Had Lived?

- What If Anne Boleyn Had a Son?

Alternate History: What If Mary I Had a Child?

by AlexandriaIngham There are so many what ifs in history, and I'm continuing my alternate history series after a long break. I'm focusing on Mary I today, with a look at how history could have changed if one of those phantom pregnancies turned out to be real.
