She Writes Blog Hop Number 5!

She Writes
Blogging about Books and Writing Blog Hop

Over at She Writes, Meg who hosts the 1st Books blog thought it would be great to host another online Blog Hop 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!  Have a browse!

Last time, I participated we were challenged to leave a writing tip. So I shall carry on that theme here, as it is a while since I have taken part.

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?

  1. Nice to meet you. I am you next door Author on the blog hop!


  2. Very "curious". Well said!

  3. I do quite a bit of rambling on my blog. I just got to a place where I wanted to let it all hang out. It may have been reactionary but for once, I channeled that in a positive way. You're right, writing for the heart is a good direction for writing and blogging. It's really liberating.

  4. It's funny, right? It feels all anonymous *out there*...until you start *meeting* the people in the blogosphere; then, I think, you start to self-edit.

  5. I am blog hopping as well. You had me at this line
    I believe that writing should reflect us as individuals, therefore we should write, and enable that writing to become an extension of ourselves.

    It's why I write. Our writing voices are an extension of that creative soul inside.. Nicely put, and nice to meet you.

  6. One can only hope to write from the heart. I can tell when someone is just blowing hot air or telling the truth. I feel that if we are only here on this earth for a piece of time, then why not speak honestly and truthfully. Very nice to meet you!
