I am a Bowerbird Blogger

I am a hungry writer that is starving for readers. My days are spent wavering between neglect of personal hygiene, a constant upkeep of my home, and the small task of raising two boys. Some place within that shuffle lives this space. I come here and spill out my thoughts and then pray that they don't just float around in cyberspace. I need you.

Yes you, lovely reader, who stops by and checks in with my simple little life. I need to flex my creative muscle for you. I need to strut my words like a Bowerbird builds a bower to attract females. They spend 9-10 months of the year constantly working on, improving, and rearranging their creations and in the end, they have a beautiful nest scattered with all sorts of treasures. From feathers to shells, these bowers are magnificent.

So, I gather my words and build my nest for you. An almost primal need takes over me as I write each day. What is this drive pushing me to put my life out there for strangers to read? Where does this ravenous spirit in search of readers come from?

I am a Bowerbird Blogger with a sensation bower just waiting for you to flutter by and read my thoughts. No giveaways...no sponsors...just a tower of simple words.

Well I don't need giveaways to read your Blog, so I hope that just makes your day. I however have stooped to using a giveaway as the proverbial porkchop to get people to stop on by and maybe like what they see. Shame on me... ha! like I won't do it again!

I only recently found this site, but I love it! I write simply because I like to! It all started with me breaking an ankle and looking for something to do, but then I got so involved with what was going on elsewhere, that I had to see what happened next. I don't need awards or givaways, but I would like some!
I just write because I like to read what is going on...and it has become a hobby! I was shocked when I did a fun quiz to find that I was 85 per cent addicted!
