So, I was just logging in to my blog to plan some posts and get back to posting here again, and I saw that a writer-friend had just posted a comment today! What impeccable timing, and what’s that old adage about, “Things happen for a reason”? Haha!
So, yes, I’m back. I’ve said it time and again, that I feel like I need to keep up with the Jones’ of the writing & blogging world, but I just can’t, so I’m not even going to try anymore. I’m not meant to write daily articles about the freelance writing life, at least not right now — but I can share inspiring tidbits. Freelance writing is only one of my jobs, anyway; I also edit, moderate online communities, and manage social media. I also blog about other subjects, including musical theatre.
I don’t always feel like I “fit in” with other freelance writers, as well as mommy bloggers (since I had a miscarriage in June 2008, and am struggling with some fertility issues). But that’s okay!
Lately I’ve been stumbling upon some great links, videos, quotes, and articles, though — and I want to share that greatness with you. And who knows what else I might share along the way? You never know!
So, as my About page now reads:
When I first started this blog it was for me to write about writing, editing, etc. After I gained a following I felt compelled to “keep up with the Jones'” (i.e., other freelance writers) and try to write informative articles about freelance writing. I’ve since discovered that just isn’t me, my heart isn’t in it. In my opinion, there are more than enough blogs that feature articles about the freelancing life. So, I’ve decided to just be me, and make this blog a smorgasbord of interesting things I discover and want to share, whether they be links to other freelance writing blogs, or videos that pertain somehow, or relevant articles in the news. Along the way I’ll share my creative thoughts (when they occur). I hope you’ll join me in this journey.
