R is for...Reflections

So when Friday came along, I threw all my notes into the air, shut down my computer and ran off for some family time - forgetting that I was supposed to blog on Saturday! With my S post looming ahead, I thought I'd take this time to reflect on the A to Z Challenge and the concept of blogging every day.

I joined this challenge because I am a blogging rookie and I have no idea what I want to do with this blog. There, I said it. I like to write fiction, I like to talk about books, but I don't really read a lot of blogs. But, when your publisher suggests you start a blog, what is a new writer to do? You start a blog, of course! We're in the home stretch of this challenge and I can honestly say that I will continue to blog. I won't be blogging every day because it takes too much time away from writing and because I don't have that much to say, but I have enjoyed reading some of the other blogs participating in the challenge and I've learned that your blog is what you make it.

I want to thank my new followers and say that I've so enjoyed meeting you all and visiting your blogs. I've discovered a favorite new photographer, learned a little bit more about great Americans, picked up some useful writing tips and most importantly, I've seen that I'm not the only writer/artist/creative thinker in the blogosphere still trying to find a voice. We've got eight days left and I'm still clicking, still exploring, still making new blogging friends!


  1. blogger and new member here. A friend talked me into starting a blog and I felt like a fish in a large ocean at first. So many directions one could go...but writers need a blog, right? So off I went...and I've been having a ball ever since!!

    1. Same here, Sharon! I'm still getting my bearings, but it's been lots of fun and I've met some truly awesome people along the way!
      Kristi, who is now off to check out your blog. :)
