One Person’s Opinion

When my friends told me I needed to a start a blog, the first thing that ran through my mind was: “What could I possibly have to say that anyone would want to read?”
The follow-up thought to this question was: “You’re a writer. You better have something to say that people would want to read.”
And now, you're thinking: “What did you write and where can I buy it?"
The short answer is: “I have written a number of children’s picture books, a middle grade series, and a young adult novel.” The long answer: “None of them can be purchased in any store. At least, not yet.”
So who am I? And why should you care what an unpublished author has to say about anything?
Well, isn’t that what’s great about blogs?
It’s just one person’s opinions.
As a child, one of my favorite things to hear on Sunday nights was the ticking clock of Sixty Minutes followed by the voice of Andy Rooney. I was in awe that someone could be paid for giving their opinion on television.
And now, we can do it through blogs.
So if you don’t agree with me, what then?
Well, the beauty of my blog is that it is just one person’s opinion – For What It’s Worth.

  1. Yes, and although everyone's opinion is supposed to count, I am glad to be reading yours and on your blog for the first first time. Congratulations.

    I love the tone of your writing here and that is what I love about your writing in general, aside from the wild escapades - that we at Telling Tales writer's group are always begging to hear more of.

    so, thanks for taking the time to share your voice with the rest of us. And I love the look of this blogspot too! For whatever it's worth ;)
