Blog Writing

So, I haven't learned to be very consistent with my writing for this blog.
But, I've really been trying to keep up on this other blog (http://lgbtvoices.blogspot.com) lately. It's a collab blog, which means I'm not the only one who writes on it, which gives me a little more motivation to post every week on my day (Sunday, if you'd like to look at my posts). I just finished my project of finding almost entirely all new members for the collab because I wasn't getting the dedication and consistency that I wanted out of my bloggers. Now we've got a whole new team of wonderful writers.

I've been thinking about blogs and wondering why I value them. What is the purpose of blogs? It seems like an un-updated blog isn't very useful (right?). With the lgbt voices (or Breaking the Silence) blog I feel like I have some sort of direction--I want to address issues people don't really talk about. I want to cultivate understanding for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and to let a few awesome people have a voice.

I don't know exactly what my purpose with this blog is. I like having a place where I can spew a few thoughts about writing habits (or non-habits), but to be honest I think I created this blog becuase I wanted to make sure I had a space where people could find me (you know, for when I become a famous writer)... Maybe it's also a good place to connect with other writers, too. I like things like that.

Do any of you have any ideas for my blog? Or at least any ideas for things I could write about? Maybe that would be helpful. Maybe I just need to be more creative and to learn to be more funny...or something.

Anyway, thanks for reading...even though it's a bit boring right now.


Write on!

  1. I'm glad you've kept the blog up--I especially like your writing lesson posts. It's been so nice, especially since I left my MFA and now am just lonely-writing... It's nice to hear someone else's experience with the ups and downs and ins and outs of writing. So thank you!
