I have spent part of this morning reading blogs….not only mine, but those of friends from Facebook. It is amazing how varied their styles are and yet, most of us think alike. We discuss writing, news of the day and families (just to name a few subjects).
Going back to my very first blog was fun, reading over a few very personal ones made me a bit blue…and a few brought a smile to my face. Not only is it a wonderful way to connect with readers and other writers it is also great therapy! A few blogs have been not about my writing but about my history. Perhaps it could be viewed as a public diary of sorts?
Some friends blog about cooking, about the craft of writing, about pets, about the business of writing, about clothing or transportation or resources helpful to crafting realistic stories. Some feature authors and their new books while others feature their own poems or short stories or excerpts from books. I truly enjoy them all.
I have enjoyed a morning filled with peeking into the thoughts of other writers….time to set this aside and concentrate on my own writing,
