I am thankful tonight to important bloggers on my radar. They, in their own special way, even without their knowing, I suspect, have gently guided me back to my blog home. I departed in March, thinking that I didn’t have time to blog. I had books to write, read, review, edit. Where would I get the extra time to blog? Despite this thought drifting through my locs, I knew I’d return, knew I’d miss being here, connecting with you.
On this beautifully serene Monday morning, I am grateful for Nik Nicholson, poet and writer extraordinaire, for her late-night and early-morning writing conversations! Just last night, she praised me for penning blog posts that deserved remuneration. In her unique way, she encouraged me back. Then Liz Casey, blogger/poet/biker babe extraordinaire, encouraged my voice when she agreed to publish the opening chapters of my coming collection, BREASTSTROKES, to her blog home, Big Body Beautiful. In a warm, loving, sisterly home, she and other equally beautiful bloggers lifted me, made comments on my monologues in the collection, and my Soul scintillated. Then came my writer friend, CJ Johnson, and her eclectic bag of resources and encouraging words. She was the one who introduced me to Kimberly Brabas, a Canadian blogger, whose words cheered me on.
I was compelled to share her post on why writers should blog…so here I am, blessed! I am a writer, and I blog. What I realize is I blog on other virtual stages, so why not here in my other writing home. I’m back…
Read her words and feel the positive vibrations.
