Encouragement: Your Writing Prompt

At a recent “blog meeting” with my good friend, Mayor Crazyville, I wondered if I should give up The Spin Cycle. Let’s be honest, I haven’t been great at promoting it lately and we haven’t had many bloggers link up.

So the Mayor and I started talking about how blogging link-ups, memes and carnivals aren’t as popular as they once were; how social media sites such as Pinterest and Instagram are so visual and seem to have taken away traffic from mom bloggers. Even 5 Minutes for Moms gave up their Ultimate Blog Party this year.

But then, even though all this talk was discouraging, Sharon (the Mayor) was very encouraging. She helped me remember why I took over The Spin Cycle in the first place. Even when I’m embarrassingly late with the prompt, I need prompting to keep on writing. (See what I did there?)

This week for The Spin Cycle, our prompt is Encouragement. When you need encouraging? Who give you encouragement? Or how do you provide encouragement to others?

Write a post about encouragement and link up here any day this week!

  1. Hi Ginny! Thank you for your honesty in this post. Discouragement effects us all at one time or another. I’m thankful you do the Spin Cycle and I try to check almost weekly what your writing prompt is about. Unfortunately, my follow through isn’t always the greatest.

    I have an interesting idea I’d like to share with you and hash out. Can you contact me outside of this forum.
