A few weeks back, I attended a wedding with my husband. It was a beautiful wedding. By the way, I am available for hire if you need a fun guest at your next family wedding. I can talk to anyone, look pretty good and love to dance. Just make sure I only have a couple of drinks or things may get sloppy.
At the wedding, a friend of mine and I were talking. She subscribes to my blog and I thanked her for doing so. I did not even realize she was reading, until I noticed her name when she made a comment on a post. Her comment was on my blog post titled Simple Minded. The blog post refered to me being a blogger of few words and writing in a simple, easy to read style.
There was one statement on her comment that has stayed with me. She was referring to my writing style.
I think you write like you are having a conversation with all of us.
At the wedding, my friend mentioned my writing style is like having a friend sit next to you and engage in conversation. I had never heard anyone mention my style of writing like that before. The more I thought about it, the more I realized she was right. When I go to write a post, I try to write as if I were talking face to face with a person.
The conversations I write involving my family, friends and neighbors are one of my most popular blog features. So much so, I have had other bloggers refer to my conversations when they do something similar on their own posts.
I am a conversationist. That is who I am. For years people have referred to me as the girl who cannot be quiet. As a matter of fact, as a child I used to get in trouble for taking too much in class. However, now I realize being chatty can be a good thing. It can lead to a writing a blog and make you very easy for people to relate to.
I would like to thank my friend Tyla for the compliment and helping me to realize I do have a place in the blogging world.
The conversationist. It has a nice ring to it.
See, inviting me to your next wedding might not be such a bad idea after all. Uncle Bob and I could talk for hours about the weather and you could relax.
Professional wedding guest might be a new career.
