I started blogging on a whim. People said you need to blog to become a writer, for an agent/publisher wouldn't pick up a writer without a strong online presence.
BUT I was also as freaked out as a kid taking the SAT test with no pencil and no clothes. Yep. Like that. I assumed blogging meant no more private me, showing everyone what a silly person I was, how sadly unpublished and woefully unprepared I was for all things blogging. Still, I dove in with post #1.
So a day after I started blogging, I decided to quit.
But then I thought, "I should blog about wanting to quit blogging" and then post #2 was born. And it kept going, and going...
So how about you? When and why did you start blogging?
This week's Sisterhood of the Traveling Blog question comes from Sarah Fine, who asks:
"Where do your expectations for your writing (career/skill/quality/achievements) come from? Is the source internal, external, or both? And how do you cope when you don't meet them?"
Great question, Sarah! This week, Laura will answer and next week, I'm up!
