Hello! I'm a brand new member and just wanted to say hi.  I'm a Book Blogger, as well as a Book Manager over at BookTrope.

I'm super excited to be here and can't wait to get to know some of you and check out your blogs!

Hi Y'all! I blog about southern women, family, community and writing. Has anyone suggested that we subscribe to each others' blogs?  I think it would help us all with visibility and common interests in blogging.  I'll start out by following your blogs and would love you to follow mine.

Today I wrote about what it was like growing up in Seattle, before all the hype. It was a different town and my upbringing was a little odd too.

Illness can really put a damper on writing. It took a moment to find laughter, but I'm back and anxious to kickstart the ol' blog. If you have a moment, I'd love to see you. This piece is about saying yes to things that normally you might respond with a thunderous NO. Some fiction...and some chards of truth. Thank you!

From my understanding, it's preferable to blog about topics you're interested in so readers get a sense of you as a complete person. So readers relate to you and want to know more about what you've written. It makes sense. We all want to get to know the author, don't we? Writing a blog for writers, unless your market is writers, is a common misdirection.

I sure would like you input. On my blog I post about writing, current events and all kinds of things. Some tell me I should get an author blog, on sites like Word Press,  and only post about writing. That if I am 'controversial' I will lose readership when I publish. However, I personally like author blogs and social media pages where author s also post about all kinds of things, not just on writing and books. My blog is:

Hello fellow bloggers! I wanted to ask where most of your traffic source comes from. As a culinary blogger, most traffic seems to come from Pinterest and food porn sharing sites. Gorgeous mouthwatering food photos are what drives traffic to food (or in my case, culinary) blogs.

I am about to start working on an author page (using blogger) and was curious to know what drives visitors to an author page. I am guessing Twitter?

Travel as Love

"Young people, and especially our children, can revive our capacity for wonder at the world and a sense of intimate connection to it. I felt closer to the landscape because I saw my daughter come alive to it with an intensity that no longer comes so easily to me."

Hi Bloggers-

Mothers Always Write, a literary journal for mothers by mother writers, is accepting unpublished blog posts about motherhood. Now reading for July/August. We love deep, insightful writing about the mothering experience. Check us out at

Well I have made good on my idea to write more on my blog about using the name ISIS. Here is a link to the blog.

My friend says it sounds a bit inflammatory. Yes, of course it is. Unfortunately I think one needs to fire up the oven to get a subject cooking, especially one so political. I even chose a provocative title for it:

"Why You Should Not Use “Isis” as a Name for Those #*@!"

I never use the word "should" in conversation or writing, but in today's over-screened world, I wanted to shout out this message. Let me know what you think. Inflammation for a good cause?

Thanks, Susan
