Dear Reader,

I’m currently in the library, trying my best to prep my blogging class but…

I’m at a standstill. Not that I don’t know where to start because I do. It’s not that I don’t know what to say because I do. It’s just..

Man, I know a lot about this subject.


Even as I’m writing, I know that I’m procrastinating. I know so much more about blogging that I may have forgotten more than I know. Even as I write my notes for the class, I am scribbling things to add to what I’ll be talking about.

I’ve been blogging since 2002 and have been serious about it since 2008. I have learned so much by trial and error and research. Now I need to synthesize it to four sessions. Doable, of course, but MAN it’s a lot of information to try to distill.

Writers and blogging. It should go hand in hand. It should be something that is second nature. See blogs or websites are our calling card. This is how the audience knows who we are.

It’s also the piece of our careers that we control. Even when we publish, our manuscripts go through so many edits; it eventually becomes someone else’s project. But blogging? That’s all us. What it looks like, “sounds” like, when and how. That’s all something we can control.

I guess, I can help my students control that too. I’m excited to meet them and show them the ways of the blogging.

But first, I have to finish this presentation.

Meanwhile, here’s the playlist that’s motivating me over the finish line!

Back to Powerpoint I go,



Update: Maybe I should just look in my own archives.  Seriously, guys, it didn’t even occur to me to do that until this very minute. Look what I found!
