Dear New Blog

I love writing again. I love meeting other writers, poets, readers, parents, runners, potential friends. They are all new inspirations for me to write about, with, and for.

I am nervous about exposing my truths because, I think , I do not really know what those truths are yet. That’s the joy and anticipation of writing. We discover and rediscover. I’m frighteningly looking forward to what you’ll bring.

Thank you for-


Experienced Bloggers, Help!

My blog is one week old today. I have many questions, but my question today is:

How do I give credit to or reference another blogger on one of my own posts?

I have a post I’d love to write, but I just won’t do it if I’m unable to give a shout out to the blogger who gave me “1reason2write.” ūüôā

Blog Confusion

I’m not sure how or why ‘followers’ or ‘likes’ are added to my stats if I don’t get the views to match them. ¬†Makes me think there are people who are perhaps just looking to promote their own blog. ¬† I’m new to this gig. ¬†Instead of liking will you please visit and then comment? ¬† I’d love feedback on how to make this brand new blog of mine survive. ¬†Seriously. ¬†Thankful for the response I’ve had, but I’m all about authenticity. ¬†Don’t like it if you haven’t read it. ¬†Thanks!

PS- I WILL visit your blog!  Looking forward to it!

What’s Your Reason?

I write, but I’d like to write more. ¬†Like so many bloggers, I’m a wife, a mother,¬†¬†a runner, a teacher, a writer, a friend, a whiner, and a wine-r. ¬†The problem is that everyone is all of those things now.

The gift of blogging:  writing and immediately publishing.  Never before have we been able to share our words with the world by pushing a single button.

The challenge of blogging:¬†¬†reading all the things we want to say, have said, or have heard. ¬†It’s all out there. ¬†Being original has never been this difficult – ever.

So, what do you want me to write about? Let’s keep it clean, but keep it real. ¬†I promise to write if you promise to read. ¬† Deal?

Just give me 1reason2write.
