I love to blog because it is an outlet for my writing soul. But the main reason I love to blog is because I have met some very fun people and created a wonderful little Cyber World of friends. I’m not going to mention every blog in this post (too long–check out my blogs I follow or look at the sidebar on my page).
But I do want to share the few that have made me laugh out loud or taught me a thing or three about writing or technology.
First up, the Petits Fours & Hot Tamales made me LOL with their most recent post about Thongs. Then I zipped over to my good friend’s blog, The Edited Life, and learned about Mind Mapping. She’s always coming up with interesting topics. The other day I chuckled when I read one of my chapter mate’s blogs about the Dunking Booth in Okay, Listen Here. She’s new to the blogging scene, but not to writing (actually, she’s two people). I always love to read my group blog, Romance Magicians. And I’ve added a few new friends to my Cyber World, including Jody Hedlund, Ellen Brickley (over in Ireland!), Karen Gowen, and Justine Dell.
I also read agent blogs, blogs about publishing and blogs that are just plain fun. I don’t read every blog I follow every day (I’d never get any writing accomplished). But I do like to touch base with my Cyber Buddies on a regular basis. This is my coffee break time, my office chatter with other writers and my way of feeling connected to others when I’m slogging away on my computer and writing.
Writing is a solo pursuit. But it doesn’t have to be lonely, especially in this day and age.
