Another one from "Hot Chocolate".

I'm alone.
Strike two and three....I'm out!  The people I come across on a daily basis to whom I've made the offer have refused to guest post on my blog.  They say it's because they're busy, but I see that deer in the headlights look when I make the offer.  People that don't already have a blog are afraid.  I'm not quite sure what it is that scares them so much.  It's not like I'm putting down their real name and address;-)

My art instructor at the art school keeps speaking of the need of artists (and I would stretch that to include writers too)  to put themselves out there for public viewing and scrutiny.  A basic need to express themselves openly.  I suppose not all of us have that.  We all may share a fear of failure but only certain of us are willing to risk that happening publicly.

I think it is the fear of rejection and fear that no one will read it. We all started out that way and for most of us the day we got our first comment which meant that someone was reading what we wrote was one of our best blogging days ever.

Be persistent, someone will give in.

God bless.
