Where did she go?

Where am I today?

Last week in my post Emergency Blogcast Test I mentioned another blog I’m involved it. I wanted to talk a little about that, as my post: Survival, Holiday Version is featured there today.

Although the site belongs to someone else, Tracy, she conceptualized it as a collaborative. She put together a group of writers, all of whom contribute work. She calls the blog The Epistolarians and describes it this way: The Epistolarians is a group of kick ass women writers, who are letting the world know what they think, one letter at a time, like the Pistol Annies of writing.

I also mentioned last week that I don’t like to do Guest Posts. There are two reasons for that: Ultimately I’m turning my work over to others, I do the writing and they get the blog credit. Second, I lose control over my own piece, both of where and how it’s published.

So why did I join? Because not only am I (surprised and) pleased to be included in this particular group of writers, but Tracy provided an outlet for all of us to write not only in our comfort zone (as I did with my piece today), but she’s also offered a safe haven for trying out different styles of expressing ourselves, something I find intriguing. So I’m over at my vacation home today, sort of semi-incognito, not writing as:

Because the Epistolarians, to know us is to laugh with us.

    1. I'm not sure you're supposed to announce your secret identity to all, but then I never do anything the conventional way!

  10. Hi Karen,

    I am glad you posted at the Epistolarians. I am heading over there to read now. Sometimes guest blogging allows you to gain exposure to a whole large group of followers who may not be aware of your work and its your chance to shine for them. I think of it like an actor getting an interview on a talk show..its their opportunity to get more exposure. = ) Thanks for visiting today. It was so much fun on twitter with you. = )
