Team, Twitterific and Talent

TT is for Team, Twitterific, and Talent

There was never any doubt in my mind, if I ever wanted to participate in a blog, it had to be a Team effort. When we started Write On Sisters we never thought we would be as successful or have as much fun as we are today. Now 150 posts later (we hit that major event yesterday), we’re looking forward to conquering new milestones and pushing ourselves and each other toward reaching new heights.

Even with a Team, weekly blogging takes a lot of time. I find it particularly challenging because I have younger children. Each of us must wrestle a blog to the mat about 5 – 7 times a month, sometime I do it with a squirming kid in my lap. Of course it takes time away from other aspects of our personal lives to research and create the best posts we can each week. Jenn has decided to step down so she can devote more time to her family and writing. We hope you will join us in wishing her the best.

Which brings us to the Twitterific part of the post, and our own Heather Jackson, the undisputed Queen of Writeonsisters. A gal with a knack for creating magically inspiring posts and who holds an unprecedented six slots in our top ten list of most popular posts. Which of course includes the number one post 10 Tips to Survive the Starving Artist lifestyle. Well, she did it again and knocked it out to the park with Dropping the F-Bomb in YA Lit, landing herself on yet another impressive list: Elisabeth Spann Craig’s Twitterific Writing Links

Three cheers for Heather!

Now for our last T, Talent. What makes a blog is it’s people. Since Write On Sisters is growing and changing we’re putting out our first official call for Talented new Team members. We hope there are some solo bloggers out there who want to stop being alone and join up with a Team of fellow writers, one of whom is also Twitterific. If you find yourself in need of a new home and you feel you have some Talent to share please contact us.

TTFN!

    1. Thanks Kate, I think blogging is hard on everyone, not just the people with kids. You have to be so open about yourself and that’s scary. You never know if what you say is going to rub someone the wrong way. I have so much more respect for my fellow bloggers now, it’s not just a time commitment, it’s having faith in total strangers not to trample your soul. Thanks for stopping by. Robin
