Hello all
I have just joined this group. My blog is called Chronicles of Sharnia. It is basically the life and times of an ex city party gal who fell in love with a farmer and became a Mama - includes footage of my attempts to drive a tip truck and catch sheep....!
I am new to blogging (started in Aug) and still trying to find a voice that will resonate with readers - . I'd really appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment. Really appreciate it. Glad to be part of the group - you can bet I will stop by and check out your blogs too.

See you in the comment box :-)

Rock on,

I write a blog called The Crab Chronicles and I am raffling off prizes. To enter, just make a contribution to The Antares Foundation - they help orphans in northern Kazakhstan, where I adopted my son. For details see

Aloha! I am a fairly new blogger, but have enjoyed it so far. I am ready to learn and to share with all of you. I am actually an artist. I have a BFA 2-D Art from BYU Hawaii. I love oil painting, watercolor, photography and graphic design. You can see some of my work at
I have four grown children and 12 adorable grandchildren. This is a picture of my children when we lived in Tonga for 13 years. I have lived in the South Pacific for most of my married life although I am originally from Utah.
I am a blogger at hubpageswhich has been an enjoyable and educational experience. Hope to learn more from you all.

Hi everyone! I've been blogging since 2004, though undergrad and grad have both thrown wrenches in my posting over the years. I have two blogs for very different purposes.

Blue-Stockings is my personal site with lots of poetry and short stories and thoughts on life. I posted a series of short essays on life in the publishing industry and have plans to transition in a series on professional networking, a few new industry-related posts, and eventually chronicle the life-cycle of an e-book (if I ever have the time to publish one on my own!).

Internet-Ready Fiction is a site with a few different faces. First, it's a slowly growing collection of fiction that will eventually be anthologized. Second, it's a growing research hub for the publication of e-books, especially fiction. And finally, there's a book club sputtering and gasping for life. If my friends and I ever have time to read again, this is where our club will centralize.

I also manage the blogs for my company, Bedford/St. Martin's. We're a higher-ed humanities textbook publisher, so our blogs focus on practical teaching advice. We currently have Bedford Bits and High School Bits, both focusing on composition instructors, but we're planning to add history and college success blogs in the future.

Re Patti McCracken's post about the vilesilencer site ... I had the same issue but then realized, it is a list of blog directories but they are ranked. You can then pick indivicual blog directories you would like your blog listed in. Particularly helpful I would think if you have a particular niche your blog fits in to. Kind of a hassle for a brand new blogger like me, but gotta get my name out there somehow don't I?

Hello Everyone! I'm so happy to be a member of this blog group! My blog is called Lessons from the Monk I Married and it is about my 13-year journey with my husband, a former Korean Buddhist monk. I'm also working on a book by the same title and am currently seeking representation for my book. Please feel free to stop by my blog, follow it or comment on it. Thanks

This wall gets very full of comments and it's hard to respond to some entries, but I'm going to try to do that: Elizabeth Patch wrote: "I just found out about this BLOG DIRECTORY LIST you can add your blog and description to the *hundreds* of blog directories listed. This could boost your page rank and/or gain new readers."

If anyone can figure out how to actually list your blog at the site linked above, that would be helpful. It appears to be for blog directories only, not individual blogs.

My blog is about life's ups and downs, faith in God, parenting five children, enjoying marriage, contentment and peace, weight loss, life in Japan, creating new recipes and cooking for a family, brewing beer (and soon, hard cider!) second-generation homeschooling and more! You can more about the purpose of my blog HERE.

Just for fun, beginning in September, I have a monthly giveaway of a themed care packaged filled with items from Japan.

Please stop by and let me know how I can be of encouragement to you. Be sure to mention SheWrites!
