Blogging about Books and Writing Group Ball
Thursday 3rd – Sunday 6 March 2011
Over at She Writes, Meg who hosts the 1st Books blog thought it would be great to host an online Ball as a get to know you event – great idea! So here’s the deal:
- Add your own blog using the Linky, leaving a description of your blog
- Add a post on your own blog by way of introduction
- Visit the other blogs and leave comments!
Welcome to Anglers Rest, where I describe my blog as The Rambling Obsessions of a Fisherman’s wife! ~ a real assortment, with snippets of genealogy,books, cross stitching, scrap booking, web pages and general ramblings. Really the blog reflects the two big obsessions in my world, reading and books and genealogy, and if I can merge my two obsessions so much the better! Stop by and have a browse!
Last time, we were challenged to leave a writing tip. So I shall carry on that theme. I have left that original tip here as I believe it is still applicable, in addition, I believe that writing should reflect us as individuals, therefore we should write and enable that writing to become an extension of ourselves.
Write from the heart. I know perhaps lots of people will read it and you might not want that, but there is something very curious about committing finger to keyboard something that might be personal, that perhaps you would not say face to face, or write down and show to someone, that you can do over the Internet via a blog. Somehow, being “out there” is anonymous. Think about it, it is curious isn’t it?

Hi, Julie. I'm a visitor from Meg's page.
I've enjoyed reading your blog entries. Your writing voice sounds, not surprisingly, similar to what I remember from a childhood home in North Harrow.
Hi Chris, thanks for your comment. I hope things are a bit easier today and I am pleased that you found something in my posts of use. Off now to look at your blog.
Thanks for the reminder. Today has been a day of struggle for me and I forgot to look to my heart and tried to force something that wasn't in me. So for today I will take this reminder to heart and take a break from trying to force things and will look to my heart and listen to what it is telling me.
I'm a visitor from the She Writes Blogger Ball Redux, but I will be back. Thank you.
Stopping over from the Blog Hop and I am sure glad I did. What an incredibly interesting blog you have! I am following you now (that sounds creepy) but I am going to stop back and read some of your older posts. Great Job.
Hello, Thanks everyone who has stopped by while I was zzzzz! It is always lovely to see comments in the morning. I am now off to enjoy your blogs, I was planning to yesterday but tiredness set in! Thanks once again
Hello, popping by for the She Writes Blog Hop. Good advice for writing. Coming from the heart means it's really you and that's the most important thing. The worst thing I see strangulating writers trying to find their voice (including me!!) is that looking over your own shoulder thing. Sure that needs to be done later but not all the time. Love your genealogy works too. Very interesting!
Geneology is so interesting. I delved into it this past winter and was shocked at some of the things I learned through census lists, talking to older relatives, and going through marriage certificates, etc. My great great great grandmother was raped and killed by a Texas Ranger. Nothing anyone wants to hear about, but glad I know more about my ancestors…
Lovely advice, Julie! Looking forward to reading more about you. Cheers from Denver, Karen
Hi, I am visiting from She Writes Blogger Ball Redux. First, let me say I love your blog amd second great information about writing. I have to agree write from the heart. You now have a new follower. Happy writing.
Julie, so glad to share blog visiting with you. I fixed your link (you had : after rather than before //). And if you copy/paste the link back icon rather than copy image it, that should pick up the code.
Off to enjoy your blog
