And today, I ask for your help ...
I've added an email subscription to my website. Very soon, I'd like to begin sending out a column on a regular basis (probably monthly to start) - not just a blog entry, but a column, edited and all fluffed up real nice.
You can help me in two ways:
1) Go to my website at www.joannebrokaw.com and sign up to receive the column, and pass that along to as many people as you can who you think might be interested in reading my musings.
2) Help me come up with a name for the column. I've tossed around Postcards From The Edge (but didn't want to step on Carrie Fisher's book title, although you can't copyright a title...little trivia for the day); Postcards From The Writer's Block; and ... well, that's all I have.
See, I don't really fit into one category. I explained it someone today like this:
I'm an anomoly of sorts: I'm under the age of 40 (barely) with our only child in college. Most of my friends my age have children in grade school or younger, and people in my situation are in their late 40s or early 50s and talking about retirement.
I'm going to rock concerts with my daughter.
I've written about anxiety/depression, modesty (my hot topic as of late), entertainment, and the mundane. If I did a regular column, I think I'd have trouble fitting into a specific category. It's parenting, women, teens, life, music, church, non-church, and everything in between.
It's the square peg side of my personality.
Anyway, as I prepare for this conference, I would like to go with the attitude that YES! I write something people want to read! and YES! There are people who would like to subscribe to my e'column! and YES! If someday I secured a regular newspaper column, people would read it!
So can you help me out? I'm begging here ...
Feel free to sent the link to my website to anyone you know - use www.joannebrokaw.com
Many thanks, and Happy Trails!
