How my blog started


My blog began way before I was able and willing to write one word on the page. It was just a wee little abandoned link with no love what so ever.  I was sent a 5-year  blog-anniversary card from WordPress and I came back to find it sitting here on the WordPress doorstep with a note pinned to its little onesie.  The note said, “Get to it Vicki, write something.”


So I took 2 poems I had written a few years back and posted it. A few weeks later, I wrote a little story about a vase and I posted it.

From there, I found my words, my love of words, and images came flooding into my brain. I started beefing up my simple – read lame– reviews on Goodreads and sharing my love of books, my dogs, my family, my novels and short stories. I was completely hooked.  

Advice for new bloggers

Tip 1. Find the things that make life full, fun, and interesting and share them.  Share often, make friends and converse with them.

Tip 2. Find other blogs that you like and leave a well-meaning comment.  Have no fear, if they are sent to the blog’s spam folder like my comments are, the blogger will eventually find them and respond.  

*Bonus* Tip 3. There is a spam folder, check it often for missing comments.

    1. Thank you, Robbie! I enjoy your blog too. That spam filter sees the bullseye on my comments every time. It is probably how we first began to speak to each other, you found me in your spam bin.
