Today I have a guest post at the fabulous Muse, Rant, Rave blog of Melinda S. Collins. So if you want to see what I have to say about why we write - go take a look!
There's been a lot of debate lately on whether to blog, and if you do blog, whether to have a writing blog. So I thought I'd weigh in. I say do it if you enjoy it. If you feel like it's a huge chore, or if it keeps you up at night because you're scared you won't know what to say, then don't do it! Spend your time on craft and the things you do like. You can still put up a webpage and use FB or Twitter if you like those formats. Personally I like Twitter and blogging.
And writing? Are there too many writing blogs? I think as long as you have something unique to say, or at least a unique way to say it, you are fine. I blog about writing, because it's what I love. It's what I'm passionate about, and I like to try and put my own spin on certain things. Will that resonate with everyone all the time? No way! But that's okay. As long as I am providing something of value, whether that be a smile or a new way at looking at something, I'm happy - and hopefully you are too!
