I’ve seen posts by bloggers on email loops and Twitter or Facebook, but generally have paid little attention to them (hangs head in shame). It seemed to be a lot of information about writing, or personal journals, or recipes. <shrugs> What can I say? I have many good writer friends and we talk writing all the time. I’m a therapist and read personal journals for a living. And I don’t like cooking or crafts, so…
But then I took a course by Kristen Lamb. Her course, called ‘We Are Not Alone’ is an enlightening experience. She managed to connect the approximately 100 members of the class in an amazing, exciting way. I can’t recommend Kristen’s course and blog enough. You can find it here . This class has encouraged me to look at blogs with a fresh pair of eyes and find those that mean something to me. I will blog more about the personal bloggers I met in this course but I’d like to share a few links to long time bloggers who’s opinion I’ve come to value.
Anne R Allen has a fascinating blog covering a variety of topics to do with writing and blogging. Good tips for beginners and in depth information for those who have been around the block a time or two. Learn from Anne at http://annerallen.blogspot.com
Jane Friedman is a well-known blogger with an eclectic blog covering a variety of topics from social media to confronting the fear of public speaking. Always informative and entertaining Jane is a must read on my list.
Jenny Hanson at http://jennyhansenauthor.wordpress.com writes a blog called ‘Cowbell You Need More of It’ . She covers a wide range of personal topics ranging from “My Brother is a Bag Whore” to ROW 80 check ins. Always entertaining, you never know what Jenny is up to, but she’s bound to share it in her blog.
As you can see, I love learning. These blogs all have contributed to my understanding of the new world of technology. They’re part of the reason I bought and fought with a new smart phone (here are my struggles). Best of all they’ve added to my life. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
