A WRITER WRITES
That’s what they say.
I always wanted to be a writer.
But, I didn’t write…except for that four page story about an invasion from Jupiter I started in the fourth grade…oh, and that attempt at writing in a journal one semester in college (Oh, to find those old spiral notebooks and read how wise I was at 19).
But, until recently, I haven’t written much.
I found a journal app for my phone in 2011, and, I figured, that would be the impetus I need to write.
One entry in 2011.
One entry in 2013.
Four in 2014.
In 2015, I began to write…not a lot, but more.
I also decided to write a blog in 2011.
From 2011 until 2015 I made exactly 5 entries.
I was on a roll.
You can find that one at http://myrainywindylife.blogspot.com
Last week, I decided to get serious, so I joined WordPress https://randyepps.blog.wordpress.com
to set up a blog. I didn’t just do the free one…I actually paid money.
Now, I need your help.
Apparently, writers like people to read their stuff.
They write because they think they have something to say.
If I want to ever do more than just get likes on Facebook, I need you guys to follow me on Blogspot and WordPress.
The way you do that: you scroll down past the blog to the comments section.
There is a place to follow, to enter your email address.
Do that, and you will get notified every time I put something on one of these blogs, you will receive an email.
Why is this important?
Well, I never know who Facebook is showing my stuff to these days.
I know I don’t see everything you put on Facebook.
Understand, this is hard for me, this self-promotion, but I am being told that if I want to expand my readership, there is a need to promote myself.
Oh, and one more thing…if you think what I have written is interesting, thoughtful, funny, or inspiring, and you think someone that you know might enjoy it as well, then, maybe hit the share button.
Again, thank you for reading my ramblings, and all the encouragement you have offered.
I can’t help myself but to do what thrills me…and this writing thing…
Well, I guess I’m a writer.
