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!

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.

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 fabulous bogging women,
I'm Anna Edmondson, a newcomer, and my blog is "Beyond the Carpool". I write about the awkward underbelly of being 47 and going back to work after kids. A career counselor a year ago told me to journal about my ambivalence about returning to "work" and to come back to her after I'd fully purged myself of my fears and doubts. Well, I'm still here, purging and pondering. My hope is that with time, effort, and a little more blogging, a path of clarity will open up. Unlearning racism, the search for personal authenticity, feminism and raising boys are some of the topics that interest me most.

Hi everyone. Just wanted to let you know the blog site (Red Cross Blogs) I run for work is giving away free charity Christmas cards to one person who leaves a comment every day this week. We'll send them internationally, so read some of our blogs, leave us a comment, and cross your fingers that you'll get the cards! Our blogs have loads of interesting stuff - from a behind-the-scenes look at disaster aid, to first aid tips, to fundraising ideas.

Hi all, I'm new here. I'm a poet trying to publish my first book of poems. I blog over here.

I'm the founding editor of Feminist Review, a blog that reviews books, film, music, and products from a social justice perspective. Next month will mark our three year anniversary. We've come a long way, baby! ;)

Hello!
I'm brand new to the group, and I look forward to getting to know you all.
My blog is called Less Ordinary and it's just over 2yrs old now. It's gone through quite a few incarnations, but most recently I've been using it to share my creative writing and my photography.

Then, just yesterday, I had a bit of an epiphany...

Whenever I share a poem, a short story or a piece of creative non-fiction, I feel terrified. I actually feel physically sick. However, it's been getting a bit better over time in large part because of the wonderful community that I've built up there over the years. And then, it suddenly struck me that there must be lots of people that feel like this & that what I had in my blog was a safe nurturing space to encourage others to share their creativity. So yesterday, I launched a creativity circle.

You are all most welcome to join in & I look forward to welcoming you there! You can find out more about it, get the first prompt, and see my own contribution.
Amy
