While I have loved my journey of blogging and writing so far, the one aspect of it that I wasn’t prepared for was how socially isolating it is! It can be weighty for your average social butterfly like me.
I love social media and corresponding and working with fellow artists through my blog. I email with so many people, Skype chat, we comment on each others blogs, Tweet and facebook and I have developed a great fondness for many of my readers and people that I collaborate with but it can still feel ‘impersonal’.

I am looking for a few guest bloggers.
The posts must be new pieces, never before posted/published.
The topics that I am interested in are as follows:
- Personal experience pieces on publishing, writing, etc. for example the ups and downs of being a writer/poet/author/blogger or writing tips, tricks of the trade, your writing routine, how to keep motivated, the muse… etc.
- A book review of my new poetry anthology The Vault First Floor. Keep it real, honest and creative.
- An important cause or mission to you that you want to bring awareness to.
If any of these topics interest you please email me your submission for review at firstname.lastname@example.org with Guest Blog in the subject line of your email. Please be sure to include all public domain, free to use images or consent on other images.
As you probably know, hundreds of thousands of writers sign up for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) each year — essentially volunteering to write one 50,000-word novel from scratch in a month’s time. That’s a lot of writing for authors who may want to participate in NaNoWriMo, but are running short on free time. (Like ME)
Have you all heard about the Grammarly Group writing project coming up this November?
If not take a look.
They plan to organize the largest group of authors to ever collaborate on a novel; they’re calling the project #GammoWriMo.
For more information on this unique and oh so creative opportunity please check out the link I provided below.
Happy writing to you all!

I will be away for the next 2 weeks. It’s family time. I will be going to the cottage with the little’s and we will all be away from the inter net. *gasp*
I want to let everyone know that this upcoming week there will be no Storetry due to vacation time *YaY* but it will return the following week July 2nd so keep an eye out for it. Thank you to everyone that has participated so far. I really love reading all of the submissions and piecing it all together. It is a definite highlight of my week. I am looking forward to publishing the ebook!
My Twitter account reached 500 followers today. Thank you all! I think it’s fantastic. 2 weeks ago it was at 230. I am really pleased to be connecting with you all and many others on different platforms. We are pulling the community together and expanding it as well.
My FB page could use some love. I’ve only recently started to give FB some attention. I really like this platform because I can chat and communicate with you all easier. I’ve gotten to know quite a few of you on a deeper level through FB. So if you have a minute take a peek and give it a like….if it’s your cup of ‘Long Island Iced Tea’ 🙂
Today is the summer solstice. Have a fantastic start to the summer and I hope that you enjoy the longest day of the year with family and friends. If you are looking for a great drink to try tonight check out my newest post on my Mommy blog for a new tasty, fresh cocktail idea that my friend Seb came up with.
My 3 month blogging anniversary is just around the corner! Thank you for all of your support, encouragement and friendship.
*Cheers to you!*

How do you feel when you see things that don’t sit well with you?
Do you go and talk to you friends and say what a shame things are?
When you see or hear about an injustice being done to a fellow human being do you sit and take a moment to think about how that makes you feel? Do you let it stir and simmer? Do you use that passion to move you forward and take action?
Are you aware of yourself and the passion that burns inside you? Do you make a difference in the lives of those around you? Do you give back to community? Do you volunteer? Do you make a difference?
If not…… Continue reading
