Blogsphere is an amazing community where those involved share, help and support one another’s endeavors. With that in mind, I’m delighted to welcome author Ann Best here today to talk about a wonderful new village created to help writers.
Born in 1940, I’m old enough to remember villages. I was raised in a small city (Salt Lake City) that was kind of like a village where you knew your neighbors and felt a sense of community.
I felt like I was in a community when I rode the streetcar and chatted with people, most of them my neighbors. I felt like I was in a community when I went to the library that was only a mile and a half from home. In good weather I walked to it or rode my bicycle.
I miss these communities of my youth, especially now that I’m mostly housebound with a disabled daughter; now that I spend most of my waking time in front of a computer.
Is there a community--a “village”--somewhere in Cyberspace?
There is! It’s called Celery Tree, a place where writers, published and unpublished, can meet; where readers can find good books. Of course they’re not free, but if I buy from Celery Tree I’m supporting the authors in a way that I can’t on the large Internet sites.
And like that brick library of my past, Celery Tree has an inviting exterior with its bright and cheery logo. The exterior was so inviting that I wanted to open the door. Which I did, and discovered that we can dialogue with each other. Unlike a library where we have to speak softly, on Celery Tree we can shout our words and no one will shake a finger at us.
I hope you’ll stop by and digest some Celery today. Its enzymes are good for the body.
And books are good for the soul.
