Are You Blogging?

Writer, are you blogging?  Blogging is vital to your writing success.  Here's why:

1. Blogging gives you credibility.  Potential readers, publishers and agents can go to your blog and easily see your style, talent and passion.
2. Blogging gives your experience.  The more writing you do, the better you become at being a writer.
3. Blogging gives you an online presence.  Having an online presence is becoming more and more important as the internet evolves. A blog is an easy way to have and maintain an online presence.
4. Blogging gives you a voice.  Most writers I know have a lot to say and blogging is a great way to have your say, no matter what you do for a living.

These four reasons are only a brief start, off the top of my head for today.  Blogging is essential to your writing success.  If you do not have a blog already, start one today!  They are free and easy and will give you instant access to a wide audience of new readers!

Talent. That's the one word that comes to mind when I think of the writers in our Writer's Group.  Talent.  Tonight's meeting was filled with so much talent I'll need another month just to process it all!  One sang a song.  Anther cried.  Another brought us all to tears.  Yet another made us laugh.  And the list goes on.

If you are a writer and do not belong to a Writer's Group, I STRONGLY encourage you to join one, or start one!

Our Writer's Group was borne out of my Community Education writing classes.  My students wanted more interaction with other writers, and so did I!  It took me a few months of juggling my own schedule, but now we meet once a month and share obstacles, successes, ideas - and songs!

Thank you to each one who made it out tonight and thank you for sharing your writings.  I look forward to next month's meeting with great anticipation!

Keep writing.
Keep singing.
Keep crying.
Keep laughing.
