    Interview with Claire

    This week I interviewed a fellow blogger.  Her blog is Claire’s Comfy Corner.  Go ahead and check her out.  If you know someone that struggles with chronic pain, please share her blog with them.   She is a wonderful lady and I think more people really need to understand more about ‘invisible diseases’.

    Personal Blog Post

    This post is supposed to be my own take on a blog post. I am struggling with this. I mean, isn’t any all blog post a personal take on things? So what am I supposed to talk about? I could talk about my daughter and how her birthday is coming up, but I don’t want to expose her in depth to a world that may or may not be ready for her.

    My Ideal Audience Member

    Today’s assignment for Blogging 101 is to describe who your ideal audience is.  I’m game. This will stretch me a little bit since I have never fully thought about who my ideal audience would be.  I just always dreamed of having an audience.  🙂 Well, let me start of with what I would love (and really want) in my audience: A writer – this may seem a little obvious, but this doesn’t quite mean the same as published (look bellow).  I call myself a writer since I write everyday and I view it as my career.  I would love if someone like me is in my audience right now!
