Why do you blog? Why do you Twitter?

I'm building some handouts for my class on Social Networking for authors tomorrow and thought it would be good to have some quotes with links to various people. Please answer any of the questions below with links to your various online homes and I'll share them with the class. Let me know if you're a writer, reviewer, libraian, agent, editor, whatever. :)

Example:

I love the community support I get from blogging, being able to share the ups and downs of this crazy business and realizing that I am not alone. I like being able to share what I know about the busines with others.

Why do you Twitter?
Susan Taylor Brown - writer
@susanwrites
I love the way I can get instant answers to just about any question, stay on top of the industry news and connect with other writers.

Why do you blog?
I blog not only to interact with other writers but to keep track of important events, epiphanies and thoughts. In some ways a blog is just like a paper-and-pen journal, without the hand-cramping.

Oh, and I'm also a teen librarian.

Thanks for sharing this, Amanda.

LOL on without the hand-cramping.
WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
