Click over to your favorite blog, and pick out the 4th and 14th words (that aren’t “the” or “an”). Drop them into this phrase: “_____ is the new _____.” There’s your post title. Now write!

I hate playing favorites but I will head over to one of mine, she is kind, nurturing and makes me laugh each and every time I read any one of her posts. I am heading over there right now, http://www.thelaughinghousewife.wordpress.com.

Blogging is the New Me. What a powerful phrase. It is one that I can definitely identify with, once I let my curiosity lead me down the writing path with WordPress and I committed to writing daily, I can seriously say that blogging is the new me. I love blogging and writing, I stumbled onto a large, welcoming and powerful community and my life is richer and fuller because of it. Writing has replaced therapy and to have my therapist break up with me because writing had done for me what hours of talking never did, I acknowledge my therapists’ professional integrity in letting me go off with her blessing.

Even if blogging is not someone’s thing, I would always recommend keeping a journal or a diary, even if you never read anything that you have written, just the act of putting emotions, thoughts, hopes and dreams down on paper makes a big difference in your emotional temperature. I find that for myself the simple act of writing chases away my angst, anxiety and fears and I feel so much better just writing down the simplest and mundane things about myself and my life.

On another note, I highly recommend visiting TheLaughingHousewife and if you want to acquaint yourself with another friend of mine, I also urge you to visit http://www.weescoops.wordpress.com. She is a fascinating woman and a wonderful poet.
