the business of blogging

Let me get right to the point:

Today I have posted over at She Who Blogs, so do head over there and check me out, would you?My post is called Five Reasons Why I Blog and is in response to a tag for a meme by our What’s Cooking Wednesday founder Shannon, and I thought, where better to blog about why I blog than on my new group blog, She Who Blogs?

Too much “blog” in one sentence?

That’s because we gotta lotta bloggin’ goin’ on!

I briefly mentioned She Who Blogs the other day in my post about Luna Balloona, but let me expand a bit.

She Who Blogs is the brainchild of Frances of Blogjem, Blogforth, Photostroll, and The Meme Section (don’t worry for her–she owns her blog addiction). It started as a Yahoo discussion group and has now grown into its own blog.I couldn’t have described our rather unique (and growing!) group any better than Joy at A Spot of T already has, so I won’t even try:

It’s a new group to be sure, but I’ve been reading blog after blog of the 12 women and a more eclectic group of women you will never find. I feel at home amongst them and do you know why? Because we’re all so different yet all so accepting of each other. Exactly the kind of women I have been searching for. Now if I could get them all to move closer to me so we could visit each other monthly for some great conversation, I would really appreciate it. You might want to get on that ladies. Thanks.

Like Joy, I’m not much of a group joiner, but I’m so glad I took a chance on this one. It’s been a true pleasure getting to know wonderful women bloggers that I otherwise may have never come across; I hope that some of my faithful readers will be inspired to join as well.

Joy has a fantastic, informative list of all the member blogs (as I type this, of course–we’re multiplying like gremlins hit with water), so I won’t repeat that here either–go see for yourself!

And if you’d like to join the group, get in touch with Frances through any of her Internethomes.

Hope to see you all around She Who Blogs soon!

    Perfect timing for what I have to say! I have decided to start blogging again. I’m back from my trip, I want to share it with everyone, and I have a lot of other things to say!

    I’m going to try to sneak in some writing while I’m at work today…

  2. Frances

    I’m part of the best group ever!
    Much Love & Thanks from Frances who just loves to blog.

    I read your post on “SHE WHO BLOGS” this morning.

    Without you, the only dose of Italian life I would get would’ve been from “The Sopranos”.

    Thank you for your wonderful post and this “magnifico”(?) blog!

  6. Kathy

    This is kali….I’ve created a new blog under a different name…and I’ve actually started posting! A post about my recent trip has just been posted!

    I’m really intersted! Thanks for sharing. This is what is so fantastic about blogging, point in case. If it weren’t for this “blogworld”, how in the heck would all of this be possible?
