I would like more information about real opportunities and real ways to find jobs freelancing.

My goal for my blog was to retain my sanity, to be "me" again and to write about my life, my kids and my faith. I want my blog to represent me. I want my blog to be a personal look at the writer. Sad thing is this...there is no writer...LOL...my blog and a few columns and a book in the works is all the writing I do for now. lol. I never intended for my blog to be huge but huge is nice if it helps advance a real career. Yet, my blog is personal to me..so it's not just a starting point. Wait..I just broke the rule on rambling and being too long so i will stop.

Good morning and welcome Obnoxious SAHM, Running Yogini and Richele,

Now that we have a nice, solid group of writers, let's begin to formulate some structure to our group.

What information would you like more of?
What are your goals for your blog?
What have been your struggles and your breakthroughs?

I'll leave you with some tips from Eric, my SEO guru who I have mentioned before;

1. The attention span of online readers is small, do not make your post too long. If you divide it up into separate posts you will have more content to publish.
2. Stop the rambling or you'll lose people. Be concise.
3. People love photos
4. Try to think Universally

One more thing, with 43 members we should all be receiving 43 comments on our posts. Remember to follow, follow, follow. Let's support each other.

Love ya, see ya, mean it (comes from my friends post) come by and read it http://http://www.isdisnormal.com/2009/12/07/thanking-friends-family/

Just joined! I am seeing some very familar faces...which is always nice! I'm working on a project now and thinking about working on a few more..lol. Seems I have more ideas than actual work done. I need to get organized. LOL. Anyway, if you don't know me, my blog is: http://www.underthegoldenappletree.blogspot.com. THANKS!

I haven't been around in forever! I am glad I found this group. I have been working on a few projects. One is very close to being published. (high fives to my sistas here! )

Welcome Krissi, Irish, Victoria and Liz,

Glad to have you on board and look forward to reading your posts. Please remember to try and follow/subscribe to the other members websites.

Another tip for the day, don't forget to reply to comments made on your websites. The more you reply the more your readers will revisit.

I have lots of rejection letters. If I'd known that would prove I was a writer, I would have saved myself the pain! Yet, I trudge on. I guess I'm a literary cutter.

Hi everyone! I joined this group last night, because I am always looking for a good critique group. I'm not quite sure how one works over the internet, but I'd love to give it a try. I just finished up course work for the Institute of Children's Literature, and I'm not published yet, but I have a few rejection letters to prove that I'm a real writer. :) I have several blogs, one about the joys of parenting, and one aimed more toward my writing.

The parenting one: http://thepumpkinpiepatch.blogspot.com
The writing one: http://victoriakimble.blogspot.com

Can't wait to interact with all of you!

the rss should be working now. If not, it's easiest to contact me by leaving a comment on the blog or through my site: http://irishstoryplayhouse.com I'm having a lot of trouble getting the follow button on the blog....still trying to work that out
