I recently traveled to Austin to participate in the Women's Storycircle Network Conference. I've written about SCN before and have been a member for about ten years. This year I was on a blogging panel with some very neat women bloggers. It was so interesting to hear why each of them started to blog. Some are building platforms for their writing careers, others are using their blogs to journal their life stories, and some offer valuable services such as tax tips. We had a big group attend and answered all kinds of questions about the blogging world. The picture above is the blogging panel, we came from all ends of the country.
Starting from the left is Linda who writes at My Own Velvet Room. She lives in the Pacific Northwest and is such a neat lady. I'm so glad I got to meet her face to face.
Next is Nita Lou Bryant who blogs at Cafe Nita Lou and Electric Nita Lou.
Judy blogs at The International Mom's Blog where she talks about her family and international adoptions.
Next to her is Becky, we call her the hill country hippie:) She blogs about her life at Seasonality.
That's me in the purple shirt, wearing my hair down for once, because my 2 year old wasn't with me screaming "ponytail, ponytail" (apparently she believes that is the only way I should wear my hair!).
In the cute pink cap is Rhonda. Rhonda I need to say thanks to because she donated sweet painted pots full of aloe plants to our table decorations for our Sunday lunch. I won one to take home and it has already healed a burn my little Soph got from a too hot plate!
Anyway, Rhonda blogs at Rhonda's A "Muse" ing Ramblings.
And last but not least is Becca, she is a technical wiz and she blogs at Becca's Cyber Home.
They are a very neat bunch of women, all with stories to tell and all dedicated to the art of writing.
