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-

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

Hi, Wahoo! I'm a new member. I am blogging about archeology and Egyptology including book reviews. Okay it's a niche subject, but that's the subject of my newly released historical fiction, "Hidden From the Face of Humans". Here's the link incase there are any Ancient Egyptian fans out there.

And one more thing -- maybe this should be my next blog subject -- The ancient Egyptian goddess Isis meant a great deal to women for thousands of years, well into the Roman period. I abhor the crazy people who have absconded with this name and desecrated it. Although to be fair, it is the American press that continues to use the initials, even though our government has suggested we use ISL. I will think through this a little more and post the link to it when ready. Thanks for letting me vent.

My new post for Insecure Writers Support Group:

We post once a month, on the first Wednesdays, and this time I blogged about my short stories and the discouraging process of magazine submissions.

I am still writing about art--movies, television, art, and food (which I consider an art form).

As the Buddha famously observed, a lifespan is like writing in water, a moment of illusion and sensory experience soon disappearing. Some of us may feel that way about our writing sometimes. Check out this week's post--Seduction” and “The Printer’s Eye”--about a fabulous art exhibit now in San Francisco.

More than 200 artworks are now on exhibit at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco (February 20-May 10, 2015), an exploration of Japanese art and the world of desire (“ukiyo-e”—floating world). Elaborate scrolls, woodblock prints, sculptures, and kimonos are vivid examples of the transient and evanescent world of the senses, particularly the highly rarified courtesan culture for the extremely wealthy samurai and aristocratic classes.

What an interesting topic, Linda. You've got me thinking about it as a mom of a grown children who aren't in creative fields. How difficult it is to feel like you're a productive and valuable family member when one writes and writes and writes and there are huge gaps between rejections and acceptances. Thanks for the prompt -- I'll get back to you!

Hi Everyone!

I run a website,, a site to empower and inspire creative moms. We're now accepting submissions on articles that address topics at the intersection of creativity and motherhood. It can be a previously posted work, as long as you give us permission to repost it. And all rights remain with you, the author.
