Hello everyone, I wanted to invite you to read and please respond to some poetry that I had published on author spot today.

I write and create art about positive body image and self-esteem for the plus-size majority. The TriDelta Sorority has put together a program for college-age women, who suffer from the highest percentage of eating disorders and low self-esteem of all women. I've posted their wonderful short video (all animated text) as well as my essay, illustration and excerpt from my book "More to Love" as this weeks blog post.

Hi all - my latest post(s) follow on from each other. Personal story about an advertising cold call that changed the path of my career!
http://chroniclesofsharnia-sharnanigans.blogspot.com/2009/10/cold-call-that-changed-things-part-one.html it links to the second part. Love your feedback

Thanks, all. It's nice to have a place to go now that I don't have a good friend down the hall anymore. I worked at newspapers and magazines for a whole lotta years before I got laid off three years ago, so this whole thing can feel pretty isolating. Beth

Congratulations, Pamela! I'll check that out.

And from the non-mommy blog camp I'm happy to report that my latest post on Open Salon -- Fertility Industry: Boon and Curse -- made it as an Editor's Pick: http://budurl.com/x8jk
Lesson learned: when you write on topics you're passionate about people pay attention...

There is also some really great advice in this group's discussion Increasing Readership
Comment by Christi Craig on October 20, 2009 at 12:07pm
I agree, Victoria. The old saying goes, write about what you know. You're a mom, you have a lot to share, and blogs are a great opportunity to:
hone your skill.
build an audience.
find your voice.

There are a ton of blogs out there, but you're engaged with a great social network here at SheWrites, and this group is exactly the place to read ideas on building an audience.

Hold on to that flash of excitement and joy you get as soon as you hit "publish" on a post. That's a great feeling, one that keeps me writing!
Comment by E Victoria Flynn on October 20, 2009 at 12:01pm
Beth,

Why the hell not? If anything, my paltry little blog lets me get my opinion out into the world, even if nobody is reading it. More people are reading my blog than the essays I get rejected. How's that for sunshine? Chin up, everything helps and there is never too much writing practice.
Comment by Beth Arky on October 20, 2009 at 11:43am
OK, I just finished reading two great mommy blogs and I couldn't help but wonder, what's the point of even starting one? Maybe I'm just feeling negative and this is a desperate cry for help (sigh), but there's so much good stuff out there. How in the world are we supposed to stand out and be noticed, especially those of us with no books in the stores, on the way to the stores or even begun? (On the other hand, I just turned in a Seventh Generation post I think is kinda great!) Beth, aka bethina at www.seventhgeneration.com

"Hi, Michelle. In my latest draft of my memoir, I have included some poetry.  I did that in my memoir about my brother, as well.  I think it allows me to let my emotion out in a non linear way.  I hope readers will like it. "
