Do you have a blog right now?

No answer yet

If "no" above, do you hope to start one?

No answer yet

If "yes" to question one, what is your blog?

In August of 2010 I left my home, family and friends to teach for a year in southern Italy and at that time I started a blog and facebook. The heart was willing, but... In short, I'm not pleased with the outcome. My blog ended up being something like a chronological depiction of my stay rather than a writing experience. I did face on-going problems with internet reception, but more pivotal was my inexperience with social media. I am returning to Italy for three months and would like to try again. I can't do much about the internet reception,but I can learn to explore the system. This time I have an idea to shape. That's why I've decided to meet and listen to writers who are comfortable in their blogs so to speak.


My name is Marian. I have spent many years in classrooms; both, as teacher and student and I've struggled to write for over a decade. Last year, I found my inspiration while teaching in a village in southern Italy. Now, I'm nurturing an idea.
