Storyteller's Journey

   Four Years!

It's hard to believe that this weekend marks my blog's fourth anniversary. As anyone who's blogged for a lengthy amount of time knows, it takes a lot to just keep going.

My motivation to blog has changed through the years, but one thing still holds true: I blog just as much for myself, as for others.
Writ of Whimsy really has been a record of my storyteller's journey.

On my first couple of blog anniversaries I gave out small gifts to a few blogging buddies. Last year I decided to discontinue that practice (even though I appreciate my fellow bloggers) and make a donation instead. This year in honor of my milestone I again decided to make a contribution to a charitable organization. This year's worthy recipient is: Ventana Sierra. This amazing nonprofit service aims to help young people in need and was founded by the NY Times bestselling author, Ellen Hopkins. Click here if you'd like to join me in making a donation.

Thanks so much to all the wonderful bloggers I've met over the years! Your friendship, support, and wisdom have kept me going on my storyteller's journey, and also helped me become a published author.
