I'm not a "real writer" by any stretch of the imagination. I still feel the need to leave a comment ! I do love to blog and love to get all my feelings out on paper......I worry sometimes that I'm being to "out there" emotionally and that people will think that. I let myself become vulnerable and for the most part people are always welcoming and connect with my words.

I thought it was interesting that when blogging for almost 4 years (http://momtoadiva.blogspot.com/) I used mostly words and photos to express myself and keep friends and family in our loop. Then once I got serious about my photography (http://riedelphotography.blogspot.com/)and started a photo blog I mostly stopped writing. I thought the photos I was posting spoke more than I could say for a while.

Now I'm doing the photography and also started a new project that's 100% for myself only. http://stephsixmonths.blogspot.com It's all about my journey to find myself again and get healthy. I'm writing more and so far people have been e-mailing me and saying how much they can relate. I have never written professionally but If I can connect with even one person and we can share a feeling or common experience then it's worth it.

Love this idea that your working on !!!!!!

Thank you for stopping by. After you read some of the other responses, would you write about some of the answers that motivated you?

How did you identify with other people who write? Even those people who don't see themselves as writers?

thanks again

I have often remembered a quote,

"We teach best what we most need to learn."

I forgot who said or wrote it until I searched for it today. Richard Bach, the author of the best selling book Jonathan Livingston Seagull is given credit for the quote, (http://www.inner-growth.info/private/richard_bach_quotes.htm) from his book illusions, although maybe Emmerson or Aristotle actually said it first.

I never thought of myself as a Writer (with a Big W), but I write... often with three dots instead of double dashes. And sometimes I start senstences with conjunctions even though I know it is wrong. Plain wrong.

Does it really matter?

Thank you for your participation. Now a couple questions:

How could we make this project better? How could it be more helpful?
