Short Bio.

My  name is Yecheilyah (e-see-lee-yah) but everyone calls me EC for short, and I am the author and founder of The PBS Blog. My name is Hebrew and means Yah Lives. Yah being the proper name for the most high (Psa. 68:4) and Yahoshua the proper name of his son, the messiah (Matt. 1:21).

Yecheilyah – Yah Khai – Yah Lives

I am a thinker sitting quietly in the corner reading a book, listening, or observing the people and space around me. I enjoy laughing, movie nights, good conversation and wine. In short, I seek to provoke thought among the limited ways we tend to think and feel, and to inspire others the same as others have inspired me.

Longer Bio.

Yecheilyah is an Author, Blogger, Poet, and Book Reviewer who lives in Marietta, GA and teaches Pre-K. She is a member of the Authors Bloggers Rainbow Support Group and A Writers Path Writer’s Club. Yecheilyah is also the founder of Literary Korner Publishing and The PBS Blog. She has won an Authors Appreciation Award for The Stella Trilogy and 13 Blog Awards. Publisher of nine books, Yecheilyah studied Professional and Technical Writing at Chicago State University, Computer Basics at Robert Morris College and Medical Assistance at Everest College. She graduated with honors in 2008 and in 2010 published her first collection of poetry.

Yecheilyah is currently working on several projects and spending time with her loving family.

My motto in life is to “Paint poetic justice against the backdrop of heavy keystrokes”. To paint poetic justice means to use my writing as an underground railroad to freedom. If people can’t be liberated in their own lives, I hope that my books can provide a road-map. Of course, this isn’t easy to do considering the heavy misinformation, deception, and religious ideologies that have enslaved us for so long. These are the heavy keystrokes. – Yecheilyah Y.

Why My Blog Name is “Weird”

PBS Blog is short for Pearls Before Swine and is a term that comes from Matthew 7:6 of the bible but that’s not why I chose this title for my blog. I chose this title because when I started this blog in 2014, I had just published a book by the same name. I didn’t know what this blog would become much less put thought into changing the title to something that sounded more “writerly.” In the end, it works and despite how “odd” it may sound, I decided to keep it to further set myself apart. I am after-all a bible believer and I also love to write symbolically, objectively, and metaphorically; being able to compare objects or use them as symbols to stand-in for a deeper meaning. There is always something hidden below the surface and I am proud that my blog name reflects that.

In the context of this blog, Pearls symbolizes the truth and Swine symbolizes the lie and I’d always rather have truth over lies, i.e. Pearls Before Swine. I will also never force anyone to accept the truth or “cast my pearls before swine.” That is, I will not stone you, condemn you, or force you to accept anything I have to offer. You have your own life and your own choices. I only hope to inspire positive change in some way.

Pearls Before Swine is my personal constant reminder to always show love, to never judge and to never compromise my integrity.

The Tagline

 

THE PBS

“Because Truth is Stranger Than Fiction”

“Truth is Stranger Than Fiction” isn’t just a fancy tag line put together by a writer of fiction; not something I dug up between the inspirations of Mark Twain. What it seeks to communicate is the notion that nothing we can create can be as unusual as what we are bound to find in real life, and speaks metaphorically of the unsettling realness of truth. The “strangeness” of reality. You think something is weird until you find out just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

I notice that one of the most interesting ways that people learn is by way of symbols because it appeals to the subconscious mind, and I enjoy incorporating this into my writing.

Mission, Purpose Goal

My mission for the existence of this blog is to spread truth by way of the written word and spoken word, to include, but not limited by:

  • Poetry
  • Articles
  • Creative Writing
  • Indie Author / Self-Publishing Tips
  • Inspirational Quotes
  • Biblical Analysis
  • History
  • Blog Tips
  • Music.

“Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and rend you.”

-Matthew 7:6

  2. Hi!
    I read what you wrote. When you mentioned the black men accused of raping a hairstylist, it reminded me of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD which was based on a real bogus case.
    Anyway, I wanted to thank you for following my blog Reflections. Welcome!
    Nice meeting you,
    Janice

  3. I have just read this page of your blog and can’t wait to read more! Very interested in your books as well. Also, I think your name is beautiful and should not be shortened! No ever pronounces my name right, Elissa, just Melissa without the M. Or down south my family calls me Lissa Beth. Looking forward to reading more.

  4. One of the many things I love about reading so many blogs is reading the About. It says a lot more about the author of the blog than one might imagine. For instance, I know several important things about you now. You are laid back. You don’t like to waste words saying nothing. I imagine you’re probably a good listener. I found that good listeners are a wealth of information. Ask them the right questions, and really show interest, and you may get some great information in return. You also like to read. You like to write, and you have a lovely name, which you’d prefer people pronounce correctly or call you by your “letters.” Happy to make you acquaintance!

  5. It is a shame that Bart Simpson didn’t have a few words with The Donald’s wife before that speech. Okay, so we know she didn’t write it but she was the one reading it and of course taking credit…

  6. I was really happy to discover your blog via the comment you left on Kristen Lamb’s blog. I especially like your comments regarding writing in a way that reveals deeper meaning than the words left on the page. I’m reading Ben Okri at the moment, who is an absolute MASTER at this, so I’m definitely excited to read your work.
