Joining Blogs...Wanna' Start One?

Spent some time tonight reading and joining new blogs.  I am amazed at how many talented writers there are out there in the blogosphere.  Wow...we should all be able to make a living writing.  Wouldn't that be grand?  When I present to teacher-groups about writing, I often ask, "How many of you feel like expert writers?"   Typically very few hands go up.  When I ask how many feel like expert readers, all hands go up.  I understand we tend to read a lot more than we write, but, come on everybody, what if too many of us are selling ourselves short?   There are tons of expert, spirited, valuable teacher-voices out there to enjoy.  Read some new blogs and maybe you'll be inspired to start your own.  You simply sit down and compose, without just write.  See what comes out.  You may surprise yourself (I love it when that happens)!  Remember, with writing, as with other things in life, sometimes you're hot and sometimes you're not...but you'll never know unless you just give it a go. 
   Here's to you being hot!  Happy writing!  -j

  1. I think I disagree with you about the slicers, at least this week, Janiel. I am definitely doing more writing than reading (te he). I agree with you, really, though, about the talent & the abilities that are out there, just not telling what they know. thanks for this!
