Writing for Wednesdays Continued...


I figured since I was talking so much about Authors I should give a sample of an email I received from one of my favorite authors, Weezie Kerr Mackey. She is such an amazing author and get this she is just starting out as one. If you have any  interest in learner more about this new author please visit her at www.weeziekerrmackey.co

In my opinion this is one of the most amazing emails I have ever received and read.  I am sorry that the emails are in such a weird format. I couldn't make them look any better than they did when I tried to fix them so I left them the way they are.


This is one of the emails I sent her:

My journey of motherhood has been a wonderful one so far. Ever since I have become a mother, I have felt this need to upgrade my life. I have felt this need to upgrade my style of clothing. I thought I was going for the whole bohemian style look that I really do love. But I realized something from one to many of my shopping trips. I've found that as much as I love the the bohemian style. I tend to lean towards clothes that are classy and elegant that I can pair with my bohemian style. I've decided that though that I wish to continue with this style choice which is called bohemian chic or bohemian classy.

I also need to start working out so I can look start to feel good a…

Thinking About Startng a New Blog...!!!

Hey Y'all,

So I am thinking of starting a new blog. I want to do something new. I also want to own my domain as well. I also am interested in earning money from blogging. I want to do this for my daughter. I want to work when I want to work and earn money when I want to earn money.
