ONE THOUSAND BLOG POSTS



 So eight or so years ago, because in the romance writing world, aspiring writers were encouraged to establish an online presence prior to becoming published. I also just wanted my own little corner of the Internet.


If I was going to have a vast readership at some point, I didn't want to blog about the nuts and bolts of writing. There were enough people out there already with more experience and knowledge on the subject and coming from the other side of the fence (a fan person), when I visit the website or blog of a person of interest to me, I want to connect with the person. Learn about them and whatever part of their life they feel compelled to share.

So I decided to just randomly blog about me, my life, my interests, etc. If you find them interesting or even amusing, well, thanks, and I'm glad. If you don't or didn't, I'm sure you've moved on and stopped visiting. The added bonus was that my mom could sort of follow along since I'm terrible about phone calls. (Sorry, Mom.) The unexpected value add was that I have a diary of sorts (public and shallow though it is) of what's been going on in my life for the last five years at least, as well as my fleeting and more long term interests.

At first it was random, but I finally got into a regular routine, and eight years later, I have 1000 blog posts under my belt.
