I know most of my fellow IWSG bloggers will already know me from my other blog, so I won’t begin this with any formal introductions. 🙂 What I should point out, is that the first thing I did after publishing my first post was sign up for the IWSG!
Even personal journey blogs need love too! Of course I’m aware of how this works. But for those who are just tuning in, or getting to know me and my new site (my baby), the IWSG stands for the Insecure Writers Support Group and ‘meets’ on the first Wednesday of every month. This amazing group was founded by the wonderful Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh, and if you are unfamiliar with him, I urge you to visit his blog post haste.
The IWSG offers writers of all kinds a safe haven to share their insecurities, thoughts, fears and doubts without worry of ridicule or feeling foolish. I’ve been a loyal member since soon after I started blogging last February. There isn’t a more wonderful group of people you will find. Guaranteed. I’ve come such a long way since joining this group. Not only can you post about your insecurities and doubts, you can also post about your triumphs and successes! It’s not all about the trials and tribulations we go through. We also celebrate each others good fortune!
I mentioned new beginnings in my post title. This blog is new for me. After all the recent losses of people dear to me, I started this one to focus more on my life after my hemorrhage and as a way to advocate for stroke and brain injury awareness, prevention, and education. My other blog will slowly evolve back to what she should’ve been all along — everything writing related.
Before I sign off, I’d like to thank this month’s IWSG co-hosts for doing a magnificent job of taking care of us:
I’m off to get some work done! Are you finishing up a project? Starting something new? Remember, I’m living proof that it’s never too late for a new beginning!
Until next month’s meeting!
