Questions and Answers

Dear Fellow Journalers,

Over the last several months and especially the last 2 weeks, I have received many comments and questions from all of you. I really appreciate your comments as they help me understand what fuels your writing passions and what inspires you. So I decided to answer all of your questions in one post.

The author of this blog, is me, myself and I. I am, as my about page attests, a retired senior citizen who loves spending time with family and friends, is active in her community, enjoys crafting and journal writing. As a child, I was described as a “tomboy” by my Mom who despaired over my torn jeans (due to tree climbing and riding horses) but I lost the “moniker” when I became a teenager. By then I was writing stories and poems, reading voraciously, and taking lessons in Irish Step Dancing.

I married, became a Mom, taught school and was active in women and church groups, town activities and of course the PTA. When the rubber stamping “bug” swept in, I was immediately “hooked” and crafting took hold of me.

When I first started thinking about writing a blog, I was working for a large corporation and commuting 2 hours a day. Our son was grown and starting his own family and I knew no one who blogged. I did have a website which I helped develop and was making some money selling my handmade greeting cards. Fast forward 2 years. I was now commuting 4 hours a day. Yikes! Journaling became my outlet as I did not have much time to craft unless I got up at 4 am each day! I researched some books about blogging and here are my favorites:

  1.      “The Guest Blogger, Survival Guide” by Kristi Hines
  2.      ” How to write Great Blog Posts that engage readers”  by Steve Scott
  3.      “So you want to write a great post” by Jaime McDougall
  4.      “Write your way to more clients on line” by Linda Descare

Tomorrow I’ll continue with answers to your questions about content, wordpress, authors, subscribing and how to contact me.

‘Til tomorrow,
