Metaphor - Figure of Speech - Free Speech

Liz Strauss at Successful always comes up with intriguing projects. She makes us dig down deep into the cortex or is it vortex (I don’t know for sure), of our creative minds.

Blogging is transforming everyday

To make it simple I usually tell family and friends that blogging is like writing a newspaper column. You get to write about a wide variety of topics and you get your own byline. The part that is hard for them to understand is the WHY I do it.

I tell them when writing for a newspaper one does not get feedback or meet new people or exchange creative ideas, or help one another. I think the day will come when all we have to say is “I am a blogger” and people will nod their heads and say “Wowwww, cool”

There are oh so many ways to define blogging. Check out the list below

Write it down,


  1. When it comes to blogging, I get a lot of "wwwhhhhyyy's?" too!

    But, I explain it the best I can, and then I keep on truckn' down the bloggn' path.

    I'm a blogger, through and through!
    It's such a wonderful way to connect!

    Have a great day!

  2. Right on Sylvia. My favorite part of blogging is the connection between people.
