In the interest of honesty and full disclosure, I will honestly disclose that I started my blog – this blog – because I wrote a book. And I wanted a way to promote and advertise said book. You may have seen it around here – Return In Time.
And now I’ve written another book, Somewhere To Belong. Amazing, I know.
But it turns out I’m not very good at
hawking, hustling, pushing, promoting my book(s). It turns out, having a blog is about way more than promoting a book. It’s a whole lot of fun meeting amazing people who have even more amazing things to say. I have to admit, I read other people’s posts way more than I post or comment. It’s my Guilty Addiction.
I would also say, in the interest of full disclosure, that I’m not very good at writing about being an indie-author. I’d rather write about romance, and life and humor, and stuff that interests me. I’m a big fan of humor. I can be serious, if needed, but it’s not my strongest trait. Besides, that’s what day jobs are for.
Since I started blogging I’ve hopped around to a lot of other blogs sites. Often I am amazed at the writing I have found, and often intimidated. Usually by the beauty of their written words. Keep in mind that beauty takes many forms. There’s beauty in sharing, in caring, in spiritual inspiration and humor. The blog sphere is like a treasure chest that’s large and grand and full of sparkly gems. Some are finely cut, highly polished and set with gold, and some are gems still in their natural rough form, but all have their special value.
I am grateful for them all, the ones I visit and the ones who visit me. I know I’m a small fish in a very big pond, but God Bless you all, I’m loving the company. I’m having fun and flowing with the tide.
So, in the interest of full disclosure, let me say; Thanks to you all, just for being here.
Enjoy Always, T

Wonderful post Tricia. I feel the same way! So many wonderful things about blogging I never suspected when I started. So many wonderful interactions and so many positive happy fun people who are interesting and thinking and living — I wouldn’t trade blogging for the world! 😀
