I got started on WordPress a year ago with the intention of following a blogger that I found interesting, made me smile, and inspired me to start clickity clacking away at my little netbook as a means to vent my thoughts, feelings and overwhelming emotions in a manner that would be cathartic.  He didn’t change how I thought about writing… simply reminded me of how I already felt about writing.  And I fell in love with wordpress. The supportive community of writers that I can relate to has kept me coming back.  To read, to post, to comment… to be a real part of the wordpress community. Below is my list of 10 wonderful writers that I feel are an integral part of the wordpress family, and make my life richer, every time I read their posts. so without further delay, in no particular order, are the 10 I choose.

1. Not because he nominated me, but because he is an inspiration, both through his blogs and in his life.  A real member of my chosen family, and a permanent resident in my heart.

He’s inspired me to pick up my passion for writing, and run with it.  and for that I am so very grateful. … This guy… is goofy, wacky, silly, Cuckoo… whatever, He’s entertaining. He has made me laugh many times… and of course, in the eternal words of Jessica Rabbit –  Laughter is a powerful thing.
