Lady Bloggers Society


I came to know about Lady Bloggers Society because of Stepfanie Bishop. I started reading her blog before I got pregnant because I loved how she wrote about the simple things her and her daughter, Truly, would do. In my mind, I thought I would transform my blog (after finding out I was pregnant) and write more about my daughter. However, my brain thinks about far too much stuff to devote my blog to one particular subject so I stuck with what I usually write and everything that comes with it.

I started following Stepfanie on Twitter and she tweeted about joining the Lady Bloggers Society. I figured it would be a good idea because I'm always looking for new blogs to read/follow. The icing on the cake to reading other people's blogs is that they sometimes feel obligated to read yours. This was a win-win situation for me!

I've been experiencing writer's block lately so I've been doing far more reading than writing. So when I went to the Lady Bloggers Society blog, imagine my surprise when the latest posting was entitled Getting Over Bloggers Block! After reading the post, I felt like I could get back to my one post a day routine. It's just kind of difficult to sit down and let all my thoughts pour out onto the computer screen when I have a 4 month old screaming in my ear for attention. I never knew I needed to concentrate to write a blog but there you have it. My child has destroyed my super human ability to ignore noises outside of my brain.

Hopefully, by joining the Lady Bloggers Society, I can keep on track with my blogging and other writing. We shall see!

P.S. - I believe they are still accepting applications so if you're a lady who blogs, go join! The exposure wouldn't hurt and you never know who might want to read your blog! :)

Assertive Wit with writers block?! lol Is that even possible? I guess even some of the best have their moments.

The club sounds like fabulousness! I wish I had time to join something like that.

I just joined too! It's really a great resource. I'm just getting into blogging and love love LOVE meeting others. That's the whole purpose of blogging -- to have others who you connect with hear your words (or -- well read them, I guess!) Bloggers block is terrible, and gets worse when you think you have to write something great just to put a new blog up.

phallatio: maybe they have a Man Bloggers Society somewhere on Blogger LOL

Jenny: thanks for coming on over! enjoy!

CurvyGirl: no problem :)

Stepfanie: thank you; your blogs are quite the entertainment too!

Brillance: I get writers block ALL THE TIME, whatchu talkin bout Willis? LOL it might not be that obvious but it happens :) so far, I can't complain about what I've been reading from the ladies over at Lady Bloggers Society. I've found some GOOD blogs via the members reading list and THAT was EXACTLY what I was looking for. Good writers/bloggers inspire me to KEEP writing on this blog so it DEFINITELY is helping. You're SO busy so it's understandable why you can't join but if you ever get some free time, you should!

Amanda: I'll have to take a look at your blog to see what you're writing about :) I think that is where my writers block is coming from...every time I start a blog, it just doesn't read well to me so I either scrap it or have it saved forever in Drafts. Having a baby threw me off track but hopefully I can get back on my usual routine of one blog a day.

Amanda: I didn't realize you were "It's Blogworthy" LOL I'm already following you, I just hadn't gotten around to reading more than your last blog :)

Post a Comment

Be fair & civil in your commenting. If you can't manage that...well be unfair & rude and I'll respond. Yes, those are your only two options :)
