This time last year, I was well underway with a writing challenge. Myquillyn of Nesting Place had a thing where you wrote every day for 31 Days in October , about one topic. I mixed that up with 50 writing prompts from Fat Mum Slim and came up with a confession a day. Y'all, I will never write every single day for 31 days ever again. But it … [Read more...]

Your First Blog Post

I am seeing a lot of anguish on the interwebs lately from people who are hemming and hawing over their first blog post - they want to get it just right.
