B is for Blogging Buddies
At the moment, in this new blogosphere I have jumped into, I feel like I am just the arm. Reaching out for someone who knows how to help. That's how life works sometimes.
We all go through learning cycles. I played tennis my whole life, so now I can teach others how to do it. I went to law school and took the bar, so now I can offer advice to law students and bar takers on how to do it successfully. I've practiced law in the Estate Planning/Probate field for the last 5 years, so now I can advise my clients on how to prepare legally for the future. But blogging! Uh...no.
That's why I so appreciate all the kind bloggers out there who offer such great words of inspiration, education and daily insight on how to do it well. One example pops to my mind at the moment. Yesterday, Kierston White (author of Paranormalcy and soon to be released Supernaturally) made a simple little post about her crit partner Natalie Whipple. Natalie had big news: receiving her big bad book contract in the mail. And Kierston was happy for her. Genuinely happy to spread the good news. I love that about the writers blog world. We all need support--a hand to reach out and help us up.
No matter where we are in our journeys, we can always reach out and help those around us. I thank all you who keep reaching out to help me up. Merci to all my Blogging Buddies...you are Beautiful.
