that was my thought today as i remembered that the monthy IWSG post was coming up. i've been posting for IWSG from the beginning and i'm not sure i have anything new to say. there are 268 blogs on the list. would adding my 2 cents to the great advice out there be worth it?
ironically, i realized those can be excuses for not writing--and are both based in my insecurities. why write when there are so many books out there? who's going to read a book that uses a plot line used by so many others. do i really have anything unique to say?
then i remembered a Dr. Seuss quote: “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
so i took a few minutes to write an IWSG post because among the 268 participants, i'm the only Michelle Gregory out there. if only one person reads this post today, i will have encouraged that one person, and that was always my original reason for blogging.
to see who the other 267 participants are, you can go to the IWSG sign-up page. they all have something unique to say too. i wish i could visit every one of them and say, "Good job. Keep posting. Someone is going to be encouraged, even if it's only me."
