Hello everyone! Happy IWSG Day!
The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG) is a place for writers to share their journeys and find like-minded people and support for their tough writing days. Of course, also a place to offer support to others in this journey. I missed posting and visiting the other writers in January as I was on a break from everything, literally! But I’m back this month.
Congratulations to the group for making it to the list of 100 Best Websites for Writers! To join the group click on the link below,
The co-hosts for February 3 posting are Louise – Fundy Blue , Jennifer Lane, Mary Aalgaard, Patsy Collins at Womagwriter, and Nancy Gideon! Thankyou to each one of them. Do visit them and show some love.
February 3 question – Blogging is often more than just sharing stories. It’s often the start of special friendships and relationships. Have you made any friends through the blogosphere?
I started blogging in 2018. Not very long ago, you see! I am also not a very people person. And that is where blogging has helped me tremendously. One of the earliest friends I made in blogosphere was Susan (https://writingsusanb-rouch.blogspot.com/). I met her during A to Z in 2019 and she was the one to introduce me to the IWSG and the WEP, both of which have been magnificent experiences for me. Thankyou Susan! It was through these groups that I met Denise, Jemi, Pat, and several others with whom I do not communicate regularly but who always have a kind word of advice or encouragement for me.
I have made more friends as well with whom I have connected over writing challenges and on this blog, because I identify with their words. They know who they are. The list isn’t long and I am solely to be blamed for that. As they say, to have friends you must learn to be one. I am still in the learning process.
Thankyou for being here and wish you all a lovely February!
