Dead Blog

January 4, 2016

I realize blogs are dead. That said, I continue to write them. Why? I write because that’s what I do. I can’t imagine my life without writing.

Although my blog is often informational and I write a highly controversial column for the local paper, my passion is writing fiction. When the creative muse fails me, I write in a journal for personal musings. I script old-fashioned letters and poetry and notes. I write because that’s what I do.

If you are a writer, I suggest you keep your blog going, maintain your journal, and write more poetry.

It’s a brand new year: resolve to write. Write every day. If it does nothing else than clearing your head, it’s worth it.

Happy New Year. Now go write.



  1. totally agree. thanks 🙂 needed that.

  2. Why do you say blogs are dead? Just curious.

    • Hi Cindy,
      It’s something I’ve heard at a lot of writing workshops. Instagram, twitter and the like have picked up. That said, there are some great blogs out there that are going strong!

  3. I love reading your stuff Carrie – always food for thought!
