Sometimes I worry that my blog is a little too… random? scattered? perhaps showing signs of ADD? Because some days I blog about writing, others about scrapbooking, still others about the chaos of my household. I often wonder, what is the purpose of my blog?
So you can imagine how pleased I was when C.B. Wentworth, a writer and blogger friend that I really admire, gave me a couple of blog awards – one of which is for being a “versatile blogger”. Whew! So it’s okay to blog about a lot of everything!
One of the rules when receiving these awards is that I must provide seven random facts about myself. So, here you go:
- I studied international business administration in a Danish school during college.
- Then I returned to the States to get my bachelor’s degree in Geography.
- And never used either of these subjects in my post-college career, choosing instead to teach special education.
- And now I’m a romance writer. How’s that for random?
- I’ve traveled in nine different countries.
- I’m married to a Welshman.
- I wear purple writing glasses.
And now I’d like to pass these lovely awards along to other very deserving bloggers. Here are five new writing blogs that I have recently discovered and really enjoy following:
Don’t Pet Me, I’m Writing. Tawna Fenske is hilarious. I haven’t even read her new romance novel yet, but it’s on the top of my list – and if it’s anything like her blog writing, it’s gonna be gooood.
Wilde Life. Lori Wilde was the instructor for my very first writing course. Ever since then I have been in love with her books, and her blog is fun and full of good writing advice.
Grab A Pen. I think I may have linked to Tahereh Mafi before, but she’s worth mentioning again (and again!). Tahereh’s blog is always entertaining along with being chock-full of writing inspiration and advice. Her first (highly anticipated!) book is coming out this fall.
The Sisterhood of the Jaunty Quills. This blog is co-written by a number of published authors, one of which is my favorite Kristan Higgins. What I love most about Jaunty Quills is all of the prizes that readers can win!
Journalize This. Okay, this isn’t a new blog to me. It’s actually one I’ve followed for a long time, written by my very good writing buddy Kristen Fairgrieve. I just couldn’t resist because she’s already received the award once and now she’s going to want to kill me for sending it to her again. Ha ha! Hi Krissy! *wave, wave* How ya doin’? 🙂
