I am super excited to tell you that I have been encouraged and energized by two successful professionals today, one in person who is my new counselor, and the other is Jeff Goins whose blog is interesting which you can find here: https://goinswriter.com and whose new book “Real Artists Don’t Starve” can be purchased along with other bonuses here! https://dontstarve.com/
I watched Jeff this morning on a Facebook video https://www.facebook.com/goinswriter/videos/1462288047125766/
It was confirming to me of being on the right path since I had just been encouraged an hour before about the same things with the counselor I met with! I have been blogging here on WordPress for almost four years now. I have a few hundred followers. However, what I always wonder is exactly what Jeff mentioned as the #1 insecurity of most bloggers – IS ANYONE LISTENING?
I have blogged about many different things here. I have shared many forms of art that I have done here. My desire is to share my thoughts, struggles and art here. This blog has been a safe place for me to share about who I am. I am going to be setting just a few new goals for myself to keep myself focused on recovering from losses, continuing to express that journey in my writing and art, and moving forward and growing as an artist/writer. I feel more excited today than I have felt in a long time about continuing on this creative journey.
I titled this post “Creatives Unite” because I have known for a long time that I need more of a community of creative people in my life. I have met many talented artists and writers here on WordPress and on Facebook. So what I would like to do is feature some of you on my blog!
This is something I have been thinking about doing for a long time but had to wait until I knew I would have a big chunk of time to do it! Now that my daughter has graduated high school and is going away for the summer (sniff, sniff) I plan to be spending more time creating my art and writing/blogging! I hope some of you will take advantage of this opportunity to bring more attention to your own blogs as well! By the way, I know other bloggers do this also, and it has been something that I was planning, but I am excited to also tell you that on July 21st I will be featured on my friend Jill Weatherholt’s blog. You can check out her blog here: https://jillweatherholt.wordpress.com.
I am planning to call this new feature on my blog “FOCUS ON CREATIVE ENERGY”
Please choose one, two or all three questions you would like to address and send me an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Or if you are on Facebook, send a message to me at https://www.facebook.com/PatsysCreativeCorner/
Here are the questions:
- How long have you been a writer and/or artist
- What do you like to write about and/or create?
- Who has been the greatest influence in your creativity? (This could be someone you know or someone you admire but have never met.)
I am planning to begin the posts in a couple of weeks and will be doing one post every Monday.
Thanks for reading. I hope to hear from you soon!
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
