IWSG: May 2016

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time.

My insecurity this month is my attempt to make my blog more accessible.

As most of you know, I abandoned Blogger over a year ago so I could have everything on one website. It sounded great in theory, but it turns out that was a bit much to expect of my host, i.e. I lost visitors, regulars couldn't comment using Disqus, etc.

So, I did some finagling...

If you're seeing this on my website, that means it worked! My Weebly site is actually showing you an embedded window of my old Blogger blog, but you're able to interact with it as if you were there. Pretty cool, right?

If not, well... *cough* we'll pretend it never happened.

P.S. My assistant Tucker took a nose-bump selfie. If that doesn't make your day brighter, I don't know what will. ;)

Question of the Week:

What do you use to blog?
