#IWSG - February - Got friends??

It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month. I encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs.

The awesome co-hosts for the February 3 posting of the IWSG are Louise - Fundy Blue , Jennifer Lane, Mary Aalgaard, Patsy Collins at Womagwriter, and Nancy Gideon!

February 3 optional question - Blogging is often more than just sharing stories. It’s often the start of special friendships and relationships. Have you made any friends through the blogosphere?

I have the bestest friends ever in the blogging community!!

I don't know what I'd do without you!!

You guys are always there to support me and each other.

We have a great time during all our events.

One day I'll be able to thank some of you in person.

Of course, I'd have to leave the house for that to happen.

But, miracles do happen, right? : )

Peace, love, and be safe out there!!!

  1. One day we'll leave our houses again!
    Although I live too far from almost everyone to meet in real life :)

  2. I did not know about the Goodreads link, thanks for sharing that!

  3. Leave the house? What is this 'leave the house' of which you speak?

  4. I'm leaving the house! But not headed north anytime soon.

  5. Hi Heather - yes the blogosphere is an amazing place ... and that anthology is wonderful to know about. Congratulations on all your help with the IWSG group ... and I'd love to meet some blogging friends ... perhaps one day. All the best - Hilary

  6. I like how you wrote this post without directly mentioning anyone. Smart plan.

  7. I've met at least a dozen blogger/author friends and hope to meet more this year as events start kicking off again.

  8. I have met quite a few amazing people through my blog. It has been such a blessing.

  9. You are so upbeat I'm sure your friends appreciate you.

  10. So many of the people who were in my circle when I started blogging don't blog write or read) anymore. I miss them! It is hard to go out and find new people. I remember meeting you through the a-z years ago! I keep trying to get back to writing regularly and then have to remind myself to get back to reading as well! I think you even live in my state if we ever get to visiting again!! :)
