I invented a new word~~ blegging. Definition: Begging your friends to visit your blogs. It’s actually coming in handy.
My pal Jenny Gardiner spent her year on The Debutante Ball, a super blog spot, and it got so she didn’t have to Bleg anyone to visit. A new group of Deb’s has taken over and she’s moved on to Channeling Erma, where I joined her, being an Erma Bombeck Devotee. We are a group of moms who also write, share stories about our kids, and laugh at life, much like Erma.
I think its very interesting to watch the development of blog concepts, who they attract, and how they do or don’t survive. I’ve got a blog I’ve rarely used but lately have been trying to update. As I wrote on Blondie Blogs one day, when it comes to personal blogs its not about the mindmushing details of life, its a slice of the adventure, a thought run wild, an article in the making. We have these little minutes of the day. How about we make them amazing and uplifting! The line from A League of Their Own comes to mind. “No Crying in Baseball!”
That said, I’m on the search for some out of the ordinary blogs, and here’s one I found: The Writer’s Journey, which is a blog by a freelance writer I can’t seem to identify. He/She has some great links to other sites
And no I don’t think its Chris Vogler’s blog. But do read the article –
I stumbled across Nathan Bransford‘s blog which is a gem of information and his adventures as a literary agent. It’s a must. Nathan attended the SF RWA convention this summer and came away a wiser man. He is based in California.
That’s more than anyone should be doing on a computer, so fold this away in your fun file and have at it when you are tempted to play online tic tac toe instead of learn or laugh.
