Congrats are the order of the day

It's important to share about other blogger's successes and I am happy to do that today.

If you have never gone over to Greg's blog before, then I really encourage you to do so. Greg visited my blog a few months ago. Since then I've learned a little about his writing endeavors and like many of us, he worries about rejection too.

But his style of writing reminded me so much of Andy Rooney's that I hoped some day he would find a home for it.

When I read his post yesterday I about screamed. I am so happy for him. Hee took a huge step in his writing career and now has a column for a newspaper!

I'm waiting to read how it all came about still--maybe he will share that in one of his future posts. So if you get a chance, please pop on over and give him a cheer too!

that's great. I've been writing a free column for a year and a half and it was great discipline and led to my publishing my first book for sale-a collection of those columns. Will check out his blog.

Terri you are awesome. I am just waiting on my publisher to approve my first article and hit the active button. When he does, I will give a link to the webpage. I had a little problem this morning but I do believe everything is moving along quickly now. Keep your fingers crossed for me and thanks again everyone for the great vibes.

I just read your what if post and loved it. I want to commit to - NO more why God's, no more what if's - I want to simply trust Him to lead me on a life of adventure. My goal. I"m so not there yet. And Greg's site is neat. Thanks for promoting him. Sarah
