    1. Hahaha, I wish it were that easy. Honestly, when I first thought about blogging I was told that “no one wants to hear you crying about your dead husband!” (True story that I was told this, by my sister) Anyhow, after publishing a few children’s books and then losing my son and not going back to work I turned to blogging. I love it and for the most part just put my real feelings out there. I think some of the genuine stuff is what draws people. There are plenty of blogs that are purely for “selling yourself” so to speak. Power to them, just not my style. One important piece that I read once, that has always stuck with me, is – once you commit to blogging it is a daily job. So many people start blogs but visit their own sites periodically. When you start to get to “know someone” through a blog you want more than just a monthly one-liner.

      1. Wow. That comment by your sister was pretty brutal. If you want to cry about your dead husband, go right ahead. It’s a free country and I think you have a right to do so. It can take a long time to get over the loss of a loved one. That was cold.

        I would say the more genuine, the stronger connections you can make. I don’t look at it as a job so much, though. Jobs usually provide a paycheck. Haha. I look at it as something I do and enjoy. Writing the stories is a lot of fun and then finding others to connect with and share and follow and hopefully have them find my stories entertaining is what’s funn for me.

        I’m sorry for your losses and struggles. I am very glad you share on here, though. I think it’s good for the soul and you are doing yourself a favor and the rest of us a favor by being on here. Thanks a lot!
