on the power of showing up

note: I wrote this post in April of 2019 (pre-COVID). It's been sitting in my drafts for quite a while, but I think it's time for it to see the light of day. It's been helpful for me to reread over the past few months, especially as I continue to try to make an effort to write, and I hope it can be helpful to you, too. i got an invite to a writers' group a few months ago, and i had never felt like more of a fraud in my life. it had been months, if not years, since i'd felt like a writer. the proverbial well of words in my heart had dried up, it seemed, and i wasn't sure if it was ever coming back. i agreed to go out of a sense of helplessness—i'd identified as a writer ever since i could remember. if i'm not a writer, who am i?  i told myself that it was important to show up and act like a writer even when i didn't feel like one, because even though i hadn't been writing, i reassured myself, i still was a writer. but sometimes the words f

Rumor has it that Google Friend Connect is going away... and unfortunately the rumors are true. If you don't know what GFC is, that's the handy little Followers button on my sidebar.

If you're not familiar with it, it's basically a feed reader that pulls the posts from all the blogs you follow--pretty similar to GFC, right? I don't know much about it, but I love what I've seen so far and highly recommend it as an alternative to following blogs through your Blogger dashboard!


Would you do me a favor and go follow my blog on Bloglovin? I'd love it a lot! I'm sad about GFC being retired, but I hope you'll follow me onto our next adventure! ;) Just click the link below.

  1. aaaactually, just so you know, it's google reader that's being retired. I've searched around and stuff, and as far as I can tell, GFC will still be around to follow through your blogger dashboard, at least for now. but if you use google reader for post updates, that's going away and bloglovin' is a faaantastic solution (not to mention a lot of people are switching to using that anyway). so yeah, it's a little confusing, but that's what I've found.
    ps--I went and followed you on bloglovin'. (:
