The first Wednesday of every month is Insecure Writer's Support Group day. Hosted by Alex Cavanaugh and his awesome minions, it's a monthly event where we post about our insecurities and problems as writers, receive positive feedback, then visit other participants to lend encouragement. Thanks so much to our host Alex Cavanaugh and co-hosts this month, Sarah Foster, Joylene Nowell Butler, Lily Eva, and Rhonda Albom!
I keep hearing about blogging being dead, that it's gone out of style, ran its course. Extinct like dinosaurs. That sort of makes me sad, really. It's been such a rich source of information, support and camaraderie to me in my writing endeavors. Even so, I've thought about giving it up, mostly because it's time-consuming and cuts into my writing time. My posts have been sporadic, about once per month. I find myself wondering if I really have anything of interest to say.
But, you know, I don't want to give it up. I love the people I've met. I like getting glimpses into your lives. It humanizes me, if that makes sense. I'm not the only one who makes mistakes, who's a bit kooky and quirky. I'm not the only one who thinks up/of weird things. And I mean that in a good way!
So I'm going to give it another shot. Once per week, every Monday. Surely I'll have something to say once per week, even if it's about my doggies and how big their vocabularies are. Which, they totally understand a lot and have a lot to say. They're way smarter than...okay, I'll save it.
But I figure, some cute or fun stuff (like my doggies) mixed in with some writing stuff and hosting other writers and cover reveals and releases--I'll try my best to find something interesting to say!
Anyone else struggling with blogging?
Is blogging becoming extinct?
Will you come back and visit if I have a regular blogging schedule?
(Okay, I was fishing with that last one! But will you?)
