How I Started Blogging

I was about to turn 53, and struggling at trying to write a novel.  I thought that having a blog would inspire me.  It has- in so many ways!!

Advice to new bloggers:

Write as often as possible.  The goal is to find your unique voice- this will only come through practice.  Basically, we all have the same stories to tell- it’s how we each choose to tell them that makes the difference.

Comment on other blogs, and read the other comments.  I have been so inspired by conversations I’ve had with other bloggers in the comments section.  And it’s a great way to begin blogging friendships.  The relationships you form- that’s the best part of blogging.


As always, there is no pressure to participate!  I want this to be fun, not torture!  I only did 5 nominations, because I have a few more of these to do, and I don’t want to inundate anyone!
